Military Retirement Ceremony, Party, Last Flight Reception, MCAS, Retirement Party

One of my long time clients (aka friends) called me months ago to ask me to save the date for her husband’s Retirement Ceremony from the Marines.

And this week, the big day arrived – Yay!

I met them on the runway of MCAS Miramar to capture not only his Retirement Ceremony but also HIS LAST FLIGHT as a Fighter Pilot…..

I captured each moment of his last flight:    from gearing up in the locker room…

To walking out to the flight line…

To the take off, the fly overs,  the crowd cheering him on and  and the most amazing

landing you ever want to see (you have to watch the video to see, but let’s just say it involved a tunnel of water high in the air!)

After the flight the official retirement ceremony began – what an honor to be asked to share and capture such a special day!


It was an exciting and emotional day – but here’s the second honor of the day:   I felt honored to be their photographer for life.

(I definitely teared up when I happened to see the photo page of their program –   it was a lifetime of newborn, family and military homecoming photos

and almost every one of them was captured by me — I felt like I was part of their family and I was so honored to be their photographer for life!

So make sure you watch the video – I can guarantee you will be smiling while you watch it!
