What a joy it was to get together with these four to take their pictures. You couldn’t have asked for a nicer day or a nicer family! I’ve known Courtney for a while now, through work, and had heard a lot of stories about her family – especially about her two kids, Luke and Kate. It was awesome to finally meet them. Luke was quite the character and always had a smile on his face; Kate was okay with the pictures to start, but then decided it was time to start exploring and didn’t want to pose anymore! Hopefully you enjoy the pictures that resulted – a beautiful Texas afternoon and a beautiful Texas family!
Mike and I have quite a history. We first met in 8th grade, and he’s been my best friend since 9th grade. There are lots of stories to be told about our adventures in high school and even some from our college years when we didn’t see each other much. Then 2 years ago, he was my best man. Last month, the roles were finally switched, and I had honor of being his best man! I flew back to Illinois a week early for the bachelor party (sorry, no pictures of that), which was a blast. Katie flew up on the following Wednesday, and from then on, it was all wedding stuff! We helped set up the decorations at the awesome venue and got to spend a lot of time with Mike, Brittany, and all of their friends & family. Of course, I brought my camera for all the festivities, and while I wasn’t the official photographer, Katie and I tried to capture as many moments as we could. You couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque day to get married – sunny, clear, and a small hint of fall in the air. All the girls looked beautiful; all the guys looked like bankers from the 1890s (I had a full beard, so me probably more than everyone else); and the wedding was perfect from start to finish. It was truly a day to remember.
I only met Brittany about a year and a half ago, but we’re basically old friends at this point. She and Mike are perfect together – I’m so happy that God prepared them for each other, and I’m super excited to see where He takes them from here. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Zajac! We’ll always be part of your lives – we wouldn’t have it any other way. Now move to Texas already.
