Thank you all for the AMAZING turnout of voters! We were blown away as over 500 of you weighed in your opinions, some biased….some completely objective. Either way, it was an awesome week of voting and very fun to watch certain categories battle it out to the bitter end.

We are here in Nashville attending the extremely awesome and did I mention insanely talented Jeremy Cowart Workshop. We didn’t want to leave you all hanging while we are out of town so between bites of quesadilla explosion salad (YUM! Thank you Chili’s) we wrote down the names of the 15 category winners. Those that were in the running for the three prizes were:

Katherine and Mark-Romance (ooh lala)
Chrissy and Jay- Hot Potatoes (representin New JER-SAAAAAAAAAAY)
Jill and Jed- Cutie Petuties (awwwww)
Adam and Lauren- Passion (sizzlin!)
Jamie and Paula- Color Pop (pink and green unite)
Joe and Joanna- Best ups (white men can and will jump)
Sara -Just Plain Purdy (and I think Toddio will agree)
Hillary- Shoes Glorious Shoes (how can hot pink not win?)
Catherine and Nick- Ring shots (they started something new alright)
Susan and Thad-Happy Happy Joy Joy (when doesn’t a dapper older gentlemen laughing not make you smile?)
Molly hugging her mom- Intense (this photo still makes her mom cry)
Josh’s father holding the Bible-Details (The MOST perfect detail)
Heather and TIm with flowergirls- MISC (It’s not their party, but they will cry if they want to)
Jill and Jed-Out of a Movie (This is a shot everyone wishes they had of themselves…beautiful!)

Soooooo…we put everyone’s name in Ryan’s hat and drew three winners. They are:
THIRD PRIZE- winning a 12 X 18 enlargement: Catherine and Nick
SECOND PRIZE- winning a 12 X 12 canvas wrap: Jill and Jed
FIRST PRIZE- winning a 16 X 24 canvas wrap: Chrissy and Jay

You three email us with your most recent mailing address and the photo from your session you wish to have printed. Congratulations everyone!

Not to be forgotten, we did pull up an online number randomizer that calculated our 87 commenters. Commenter 12- Katie Curry was chosen for our $15.00 Starbucks card. Congrats Katie…have some coffee on us! Email us your address as well.

You guys rock. Thanks for closing out our 2009 season with thunderous applause. We can’t wait to show you what is up our sleeve with 2010.
