San Diego Wedding Photographers | Temecula Wedding Photographers

It’s hard to believe that the year has come to an end! We finished our 2011 wedding season with Gigi & Steve’s wedding at the Sawgrass Beach Club, and it was EPIC! 2011 truly was an amazing year, and we are excited about what 2012 has in store for us and our couples!

To kick off the new year, we are doing our wedding photography giveaway again! Yes, one lucky couple will win a wedding photography package worth $2,500! We started this last year, and the contest was such a blast! We got the opportunity to hear some amazing love stories and in the end the contest was won by a very incredible couple!

The contest will take place in two parts. The first part is a popular vote (where the couples in the contest will have all their friends and family (and probably all of THEIR friends and family) vote for them on our blog. The top 5 couples with the most votes will have their love story reviewed by our panel of wedding industry pros (and last year’s winning couple) and they will ultimately choose the winner of the contest. We are thrilled to announce the members of our 2012 Panel:
