Last month Rick and I announced the first annual Ardent Awards… The premise was simple. We chose our favorite five photos in seven different categories: Photo Of The Year, Best Ring Shot Photo, Best Reception Photo, Best Getting Ready Photo, Best Engagement Photo, Best Ceremony Photo and Best Bridal Formal Photo. These photos were EXTREMELY hard to narrow down so we called in a favor, asking a photographer friend whose opinion we value to weigh in as well. The finalists were placed in galleries on our facebook page. Then we asked you to vote for your favorite image in each category by clicking ‘like’.
We are happy to say that the wait is over! The contest has now concluded and the results are in. The following photos won best of their category and these lucky clients will be receiving a fine art canvas of their winning photo. Congrats to all of the winners and thank you so much to everyone who participated. Rick and I feel so blessed to be able to do what we do for a living, you guys make our jobs so fun!
PS: If you have been selected as a winner please get in touch with us to make sure that the address we currently have on file with you is correct. We would hate to send this canvas gorgeousness to the wrong place!
Without further ado… on to the photos!
