About Operation Love Reunited

Operation: Love ReUnited is a non-profit, fully volunteer organization that offers professional photography sessions to military families and members who are getting ready to deploy, who are currently deployed, or those who are coming home.
Qualifications to Participate & The Gift of Photography:
To start the qualification to participate in our program you must be an immediate family member of or a member of the military.  The military member must have orders to deploy or a letter of command.  Unaccomanied tours are not qualified at this time, this includes Korea.  The orders shall be a departure period of 4 or more months overseas and at least 3 months prior to returning to the United States.
The Sessions:
Each participating family or member may receive two sessions per deployment.  The first session is a choice of a) Pre-Deployment with the service member, 2) Saying Goodbye – documentary style at the farewell location, 3) Mid-Deployment where the service member has already deployed, or 4) R&R during the deployed members mid-deploy break. The second session is always and only during the Homecoming, which is documentary style and done at the actual homecoming time and location. Post-Homecoming sessions are not allowed.  ALL sessions shall follow a patriotic theme.  Pre-Deployment and Mid-Deployment sessions shall include a uniformed service member with the option to change clothes later in the session. Some photographers only cover certain sessions, so please clarify this when booking.
The Gift:
2 Waived Session Fees per deployment.  If a Pre-Deployment, Mid-Deployment, or R&R Session was done, a minimum 4×6 album, of at least 15 images will be sent overseas to the deployed service member for an extra special boost of moral.  If a Saying Goodbye or Homecoming session was done, the service member and/or family will receive either a 4×6 album of at least 15 images -or- a CD of at least 15 final documentary style images will be given.  It is the photographers choice what to offer here.


**What I Offer:
I offer 1 hour sessions for Pre-Deployment, Mid-Deployment, and R&R sessions, within a 30 mile radius of Navarre Beach Florida. Homecomings I will travel to the location of your homecoming (Provided I am available), I do have base access, so that is not a problem. Most homecomings last about 1hr give or take, I do however try to block of that date entirely to prepare for any delays that may happen. All sessions come with a Disc of at least 15 images with a print release, discounted future paid sessions, option to purchase additional speciality items such as personalized dog tags, or bracelets. I currently serve Pensacola Florida and surrounding areas including Panama City, FL and some areas of Alabama, I am also available for travel outside of my current area, please ask for more information on that. Each session is delivered in a custom packaged case with images sized for printing as well as images sized for social media use.
Donations are greatly appreciated for travel, and extra things I can send to deployed members!!
PLEASE NOTE due to high demand and the fact there are limited OpLove photographers in this area!!!
*2015 Sessions*
All homecomings will be sent via digital download.
All other sessions will be physically mailed to the deployed service member once a mailing address is provided,
a digital download link is emailed to the spouse and that link will expire after 15 days.
I apologize if my calendar will not allow me to be available for your homecoming, I want to be there as bad as you do, and I will do all I can to be.
POST HOMECOMING  sessions are not available. Im VERY sorry.
