When Shelby asked if I was still available to photographer her husband’s military helicopter homecoming on Coronado Island I was SO excited! I had never experienced a Navy homecoming like this one and loved the entire process. Zack and the other four or five helicopters were scheduled to arrive at 2pm, so we were there waiting. Some time after, we were told they would be doing a fly-by! We all watched in awe and excitement until they landed and very slowwwwly taxied to their location in the line-up (absolute torture for many I’m sure).
Shelby and I ran to the end of the line where Zack’s helicopter had parked and waited for the green light to cross the red line! Eventually, a countdown began and everyone ran to their loved ones after seven months of waiting. I had never seen anything like it, and it may even top the energy of ship homecomings!
Thank you again for choosing me to capture this amazing day Shelby!
