Mike & Kelly win a 16×24 canvas which is a $200+ value! They get to choose any photo from their engagement session or wedding and turn it in to some lasting memories to hang in their home. Mike & Kelly really stepped up the voting the last two days and ending up receiving 43% of the total votes! Congratulations!
Although they had a pretty strong hold on first towards the end, there were two other couples who were also shown a great deal of support. So, because of all of the amazing support, encouragement, and votes (267 total votes), I think some free stuff is definitely in order for 2nd and 3rd place!
Congratulations again to all of the winners! Thank you everyone who voted and showed support. But most of all, thank you so much to all of the amazing couples who allowed me to be a part of such a special day in your lives. Your stories are all phenomenal and I am honored that I was able to help capture some of those memories!
Every year keeps getting better and better! 2012 was a great year filled with some amazing couples. These weddings were tremendously exciting, heartfelt and unique. Each wedding told great stories of true love and friendship.
As always, my favorite part is getting to know the couples. I was extremely excited to be a part of such a memorable event in their lives. Each wedding was a great reminder of how amazing it is to be married and to begin the journey with the one you love. It was truly an honor to be chosen to preserve those memories!
As a way of saying thank you and to show how appreciative I am, I want to give away free stuff! The winning couple will receive a FREE 16×24 canvas wrap of the photo of their choosing. That’s a $200 value!
