In 2006, I was invited the day before their marriage to shoot the Chacken photos. Lonnie was and is a Marine serving our country and Michelle is a wonderful Marine Wife supporting him while he deploys. He just returned from a deployment to Afghanistan and we are so grateful for this family's service to our country. I had photoshop but did not know as much about editing back then. Here are the now edits. I LOVE this shot because it shows Lonnie's smile, Michelle's confidence and love for him and the honey warmth from the background. We shot the photos at Seven Springs Resort. I love that they are still together today and going strong! I hope the best for them always. It reminds me to put on the site the fact that we do not charge sitting fees for active service members. I feel if you sit for me on the frontline to protect my safety; you and your family deserve to sit in front of my camera no charge.
