We recently attended a surprise party for a dear friend of ours. We were asked to capture her reaction but of course we couldn’t stop there. Tater is known for “telling the story.” The evening was filled with friends, music, and beautiful surroundings. Here are a few images from the evening.


The band all set up ready to go…



love these mics…


She walked out onto the upper balcony, and we all began singing “Happy Birthday” to her below… 


mingling with friends…


our entertainment on the lake…






We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather…


It was a wonderful evening! We thank God for our friends! Happy Birthday Joy!

    You both are artists! I felt like a star when you were taking pictures and our group was playing. Thanks so much for the pictures.
