For the 5th year in a row, Two Stories Media has had the honor to work with Tee It Up to provide both event photography and event videography for their annual Reunion event. This Tee It Up For The Troops event began in 2012 as a “way to reunite wounded, ill or injured service members who had been separated due to battlefield injuries, changes in rehabilitation status, or for other reasons beyond their control.” The veterans find this event to be a therapeutic reunion and healing. They get the opportunity to catch up with some friends and show their support for each other. The event also plays a role in helping these veterans to stay positive and assists them in making the adjustment to civilian life a little easier.
Fun On The Course
The TSM team arrives shortly after breakfast and we spend the day with the veterans capturing various video footage and photos. Every year is a little different because we get to see some new and some familiar faces. We always enjoy hearing their amazing stories and sharing this experience with them. When it is time to hit the golf course, it is fun to see the chemistry and capture these wonderful personalities in action! These men and women have done so much for our country. They all have gone through traumatic events yet they continue to love life and treat everyone, including two camera guys, with the utmost respect. Throughout the day, we completed four interviews with pairs of friends and hearing more details on how long they have been apart and what golfing together means to them and their recovery.
Dinner & Presentation
The Tee It Up event is three days long and on the final day, everyone gathers for a farewell dinner. In a 36 hour window, the Two Stories Media team prepares and edits all the footage and images to be presented on the last day of the event. The veterans get to see the slideshow of photos throughout the evening as well as watching the video together.
We love being part of such a great event for so many amazing veterans and seeing them encouraging each other is truly uplifting. It is truly an honor to capture these moments. Tee It Up understands how important it is to create these memories and have those moments available for them in the form of event photography and videography to replay throughout their lives for inspiration or some added encouragement.
It is always a pleasure working with Tee It Up For The Troops and spending some time with these incredible men and women. We are grateful to be a part of these moments that Tee It Up provides. It is always Veterans’ Day in our hearts. We look forward to Reunion 2021! As always, thank you.
