What is OpLove?

Operation: Love Reunited is a non-profit, volunteer organization that offers a free military photo shoot to deployed military members and their families FREE of charge!

These patriotic themed sessions are designed to boost morale during deployment.

Since this is a FREE military photo shoot, there are no session fees, nor will you be obligated to purchase anything.

This is a gift in honor of the service members and their families who give all in service to our country.
