Best of Weddings – 2011

. . . best of 2011 . . .

Every year, at Christmas time, we have a contest.  A contest created in the spirit of giving.  I wanted to find a way to give back to my clients for allowing me to be a part of their stories, and this seemed to be the best.  This year we opened up nominations for the “best of” contest to our Facebook Fans – from there a handful of my trusted friends and fellow photographers looked at the portraits from this year, and we narrowed it down (painfully) to 20.  Now it is up to you.

This year, like last, we had so many great sessions, so we will hold two contests – TWO WINNERS  – one for best of weddings, and one for best of moments (families, maternity, seniors, babies, etc.)  There will be one winner in each category.  The contest will end December 23, and we will announce the winner Christmas Day!  Each winner will receive a 16 x20 gallery wrap of their favorite image.    It is time for YOU to choose YOUR favorite!

Again, the WINNER of the competition will receive a free 16×20 canvas of THEIR favorite photo from their session!  YEAH!

You may choose a favorite image from best of moments AND best of weddings!  Just make sure you say which category you are voting for — Best of Moments or Best of Weddings.

For example:

I choose #3 in best ogf moments and #6 for best of weddings!!

You vote by clicking HERE:  “contact us” OR sending me an e-mail (info@patchworkphotography.com) with the number of your favorite picture inside.   Remember :   Just make sure you say which category you are voting for — Best of Moments or Best of Weddings.   We will tally up the votes, and declare a winner, on Christmas!     So, tell all your family and friends to get to voting, and GOOD LUCK.  Now, let’s look!
