  • The 2012 Love Shots Contest

Every year I host a contest… and I say “every year” like I’ve been doing this forever… really, this is only the 3rd annual “Love Shots” contest! I’m not really sure where it got its’ name… I just came up with it! But it originated as a “Valentine’s Day” contest. Welp! I was crazy busy around that time this year and so I forgot to post it! But have no fear! It’s back again and I can’t WAIT to see who wins! EVERY WEDDING I shot from LAST February through THIS PAST February is entered in the contest.  ONE COUPLE will win a 20×30 CANVAS at the end! All they need to do to win is have the MOST VOTES by MONDAY April 2nd at 12pm.
