Welcome to the CLH images 2016 Wedding Photo Contest!
2016 was an amazing year. From as far north as Lake Placid, New York and as far south as Key West, Florida, I was blessed to work with outstanding vendors in gorgeous locations, but best of all I got to witness many couples say “I do” among family and friends while I photographed every happy, emotion-filled moment. It’s so much fun to reflect on the images I shot in 2016 and to be able to look at some of my favorite photos side by side – it’s so true that every single wedding has a look, feel, and style all its own, making each one totally unique and different from the next.
As a thank you to the amazing couples who filled my year with so much joy, I’m holding a photo contest in which four couples will win a canvas of their favorite image from their wedding day. Please take a look through the photos below, choose your favorite wedding/couple, and then cast your vote at the bottom of the page (one vote permitted per IP address). If you’d like to view each couple’s wedding blog before making your selection, simply click their names and you’ll be directed to their post.
1st place couple wins a 18×24 canvas + each one of their vendors will win an 8×10 print of any image of their choosing from the wedding day that showcases their venue/talent!
2nd place couple wins a 16×20 canvas!
3rd place couple wins an 11×14 canvas!
And an 8×10 canvas will be awarded to whichever couple’s blog post has the most “likes” when the contest closes, so be sure to visit your favorite couple’s blog post and click the little blue facebook “like” button at the bottom left of the page!
So go ahead, help your favorite couple win by sharing the link to this contest (click share at the bottom of the page) and spreading the word. All votes must be entered by noon on Friday, March 3rd.
