I was contacted by Nick of Bob's Steak & Chophouse to provide professional special event photography for his client John. This was going to be John's 40th year anniversary with his fellow brothers from his fraternity. Some of these guys haven't seen one another in a very long time, this was the makings for a special night!

This night was awesome! There so much energy and love through out the room. Friends reconnecting, stories being shared, hugs and I think I might have even seen a tear or two of happiness.

This group of guys was probably one of the funniest groups to photograph. They were cracking jokes, singing, telling entertaining stories, just a lot of fun! These are exactly the kind of events I love to be a part of!

Through out the night, the restaurant brought out what looked like some very delicious appetizers and drinks. Since I was working and there was so much action going on, I didn't have a chance to sample their menu, maybe I will get a chance next time. But here are a few photos I captured of their dishes.

As the night went on, people finally started to settle down at their tables. I walked around and captured a few images for each table. Everyone was so excited to see one another, it was really an amazing event to witness.

As I was wrapping up things and letting John know I was about to head out. He extended his sincerest gratitude towards me for beautifully capturing this special night for him. I shook his hand and thanked him in return for this wonderful opportunity.

The next day, I finished editing his photos from the night before and shot him a quick text to let him know the photos were ready to be viewed online. Once again, John was very grateful, but this time he invited me to come out to their private get together before the UT game. I replied with a "yes sir! I am on my way!"

Here a few of the photos from that private little get together with John and his fraternity brothers.

All of the guys!

I can not express how grateful I was for this opportunity to be apart of such a wonderful event. I know I said this earlier, but really this group of guys were by far the most fun group of people I have had the pleasure of working with!  I would love to continue to be a part of their lives and provide photography for any one of these guys, especially John!
