If you happened to be roaming through the Humphrey terminal of the Minneapolis Airport and saw a photographer sobbing behind her camera last night, well you witnessed me photographing Ben’s return home from the Marines. I photographed this military homecoming on behalf of the Fairy Godmother Project of Minnesota. This organization takes such deserving couples – like Kristen & Ben – and helps them put together the wedding of their dreams.
After an 8 month tour for Ben, his family anxiously awaited his arrival. As they watched the screen update his plane status to ‘landed’ the excitement set in. It felt like forever until Captain Ben Hendrickson turned the corner, and immediately tears filled my eyes as I watched Kristen run to him. What an honor to capture this sweet moment for Ben & Kristen.
