The newly married Podolskiy's met in Iraq both serving our country. Everyone at the wedding heard a story about how when Aleksandr was home, on leave wityh his friends and family, all he wanted to do was go back to Iraq. Emily was there. Aleksandr described Iraq as "romantic." These two are amazing. I laughed so hard photographing Emily's portraits that I had actual tears rolling down my face.
In March they both leave for Afghanistan, we wish them safe travels and a safe return.
