Has anyone ever had professional pictures taken when their SO returns from a deployment? Like candid pictures during the ceremony (not sure what it’s called) and after when you get to hug them again for the first time in months? I think it would be really nice to have some and I’m thinking about maybe hiring a photographer to come and take pics of us. Has anyone done this? Did you like it? Would it be weird to have a photog following me/us around? Would love to hear any of your experiences and see the pics if you have them!!!

@lindsd16: I think the pictures would turn out amazingly! My FI hasn’t been deployed yet but when he does and comes back I def would want to do this! It captures a very important moment in your military lives, having it in a frame to remind you how amazing it will be when he comes back home to you again. I think it might be strange to the other people..since there will be so many of them.. but who cares what they think!

I went to the return of a friend of mine and a couple families had photographers there. I didn’t think it was weird I thought what a great idea!

One of my exes was a Marine and a lot of the girlfriends/wives hired a photographer for welcome home photos. I personally love looking at the pictures of the first hug after ___number of months. I don’t think it’s weird at all!

Nope not weird at all. My ex’s mom hired a photographer for all his returns! It was so nice to have that pic!

no wierder than having a stranger following you around on your wedding day and sharing the most sacred moments of your life like a fly on the wall. Go for it.
