Best of 2011 :: Chicago Wedding Photos + Contest

A few days ago, I posted my favorite engagement shots of 2011, and now I’m moving on to weddings! Like I’ve already said again and again, my 2011 couples were AHHHMMMAAZING. Let’s be honest, a wedding day is a once in a lifetime thing, and that can cause a lot of stress. That stress sometimes manifests itself into not-so-nice behaviors. However, I can honestly say that I adore every single couple from this year. Everyone trusted me. Everyone treated me wonderfully. Everyone enjoyed their wedding day and had smiles on their faces. It was definitely my best year yet.

So, with this post, I’m offering a contest as a way to thank one of my lucky couples. You’ll notice that I chose to include only portraits here, and there’s a reason for that: someone will win a 20×24 mounted canvas print of one of these images! Here’s how you can win:

1. The bride and groom must comment on this post and tell us what their favorite photo is and why.

2. I will be uploading these photos to an album on my Facebook fan page. The single photo with the most “likes” by Friday, January 6 at midnight will win. Let’s go over this: it is not a TOTAL of likes among all 3 of a couple’s photos, it is the ONE photo with the most likes that will be the winner. *

*If the winning photo has two side-by-side vertical images, the couple will have two options: print one of the photos in a 20×24 canvas or print both photos on two 10×12 canvases.

Good luck! Here are the entries:
