shannon selim - #5 love, because love should be being at rest, which is what they look like, and #8 because I LOVE the sun and the way the background looks like a canvas!!!!!!

Erin - well, here goes.
#3 love.
-main reason, it made me laugh and there are more than just the initial words on the wall. there is added intereste with the couple doing something rather than being stoic :)
#2 marriage
-i love how it looks like they are in their individual cathedrals and the groom is thinking about busting out :D . much color, details, and activity.

great fun!

Megan - I couldn’t decided between #7 and # 10 love and then I realized it’s the same couple….sexy!!! #7 tops it all for me…I would LOVE to have a picture of my man and I like that!!

julia - #9 in “Love” is absolutely amazing because jess captured the light in such a fabulous way. With the sun so bright and gleaming, it reminds me of “that scene” at the end of a romantic movie where the two characters are declaring their love – que dramatic music, sun sets, they kiss, end scene. Love it! #9 in the marriage section is my other pick. the fall colors are outstanding, and they work so well with the bride’s fur, giving the image an almost vintage quality, plus it shows the true emotion of the day we had, which was so serene, happy, and blessed!

Alex - #3 LOVE
#11 MARRIAGE (I always loved that pic!)


January 25, 2009 - 1:13 am

Tina Louise - #8 Marriage – all the way beacause the way the light and the rays of light are flowing out from behind and through the couple. Sweet!

Jen - Love #7: There’s no denying that these two are in love. The picture says it all and captures the heart of their relationship. Plus they’re hott! Marriage #8: It is just plain beautiful! And it captures the passion and gentleness of newlyweds. (And if we had to pick our favorite matron of honor, I’d have to go with that short-haired blonde chick in the very last picture!)

Katelyn - #1 Love: I love how you captured them laughing and looking at each, having fun. I love the closeness of the shot.
#1 Marriage: Again the closeness and how affectionate the couple is, the ring on her hand near the middle of photograph.

brandy - love them all. inspiring composition! makes me wanna shoot something. pictures. :)

Renotta King - Am I too late?! Since you haven’t posted the winner yet, hopefully you’ve extended the deadline(?) #1 in Love – since she’s my daughter and I know her, I can personally attest that her inner beauty is bursting forth and when I saw this picture I was totally convinced that the love between she and Andy was the “real deal”.
#8 in the Marriage category (of course my bias is coming through again!) I love the sunset shining through as a benediction between them. It was a lovely closure to the end of a perfect day.

Adrienne - i love number 8!!!!!! its beautiful…. it makes me want to get married one day.

January 27, 2009 - 3:16 pm

Adrienne - oh… my number 8 vote was for marriage…. my love vote goes to number one!!!
