Stephanie and Amir’s love is off-the-charts kind of swoon-worthy. On their first date, they talked for hours and hours over coffee, and when their coffee cups were empty, they moved on to Pizza Port and kept talking! They both knew this kind of connection was something special, and that first date turned into many many more. Stephanie could sit and listen to Amir talk for hours, and Amir feels like the luckiest guy in the world when he’s holding Stephanie and her sweet daughter, Olivia, in his arms. They were engaged during the wintry romance of Christmas, but since then, Amir has been deployed – and his girls have been missin’ him something fierce.

For months and months, Stephanie and Olivia have been counting down the days until Amir would finally arrive home – and when the day came, you can bet they were bursting with excitement! There was definitely some jumping on the bed involved…

Each minute we waited with these sweet girls, we could feel the emotion and anticipation building. When the busses finally arrived on base, all the Marines stood in formation until being dismissed. Both girls began to scan the sea of uniforms to look for Amir, and less than a minute later – they were sprinting! When they finally reached each other (in our memory, this is totally slow-motion), Amir swept Stephanie up in the most ROMANTIC reunion we’ve ever witnessed! Oh my goodness, we are still swooning as we relive it through these images! Olivia was swooped up next, and this adorable family wrapped themselves in the biggest bear-hug you could imagine.

Amir, we are so grateful for your service, and we are SO glad you’re HOME with your girls! Thank you for welcoming us into this special moment – we cannot wait for more engagement goodness to come! (Yes, that’s right — Stephanie & Amir’s engagement session is coming soon!)
