These photos have a special place in my heart. It was almost 4 years ago now that I first met Trent and Amanda, and during the time that’s elapsed, they became some of our closest friends here in Austin. We walked thru many ups and downs with them and got to watch their family expand and their girls grow up. A few months ago, they found out that they would be moving away and asked me and Katie to take some family photos of them before they left. It was a beautiful Austin day – we spent the afternoon exploring the South Congress area. The two girls (and the four adults) were real troopers. Hopefully these pictures accurately display the joy and love of the Thompson family – it’s this same love that they had for everyone around them. They affected our lives and the lives of many others here in Austin, and we will miss them dearly.
Craig & Jenn are two of our close friends from church – well, Craig will start going to our church when they get married! It was so much fun hanging out with them on a beautiful (and eventually hot) Saturday afternoon to take these engagement pictures. Craig is quoted as saying, “What are we going to do with all these ‘Save the Date’ pictures?” But hopefully they are able to find a use for them, because I think they turned out AWESOME. We started at Laguna Gloria in West Austin and then headed to South Congress and got some really cool pictures along the row of shops there, including a candy store. These two are so great for each other and so happy and in love. We can’t wait to see where God takes them!
