Shoot and Share Contest

As you may have seen on my Facebook page earlier this Spring, I participated in a photo contest through Shoot and Share. This is the first time I have ever participated in a contest like this before, and it was so much fun! Photographers from all over the world share their work through this contest, and it is so inspiring to see everyone’s best shots.

The best part of this contest  is that it is all about the photos and we got to be the judges. There are no watermarks or names on any of the images, so it is truly about which ones speak to you. During the voting process, random groups of photos would appear and you picked your favorite from the set. This kept going for as long as you wanted to vote! It was so fun and so addicting. There were a total of 12 rounds, and all of the images I entered were in for at least 3 of those.


While I didn’t place in the Top 20 of any of the categories, I’m still thrilled with my results. I am so proud of each of these images and they all mean so much to me. Here are some of the images that got the furthest in the contest.

This was one of my favorite images from Jeff + Jori’s engagement session. You really don’t get a much better prop than a Harley.

Meet Sam. This was one of my FAVORITE images from this session with his family. I feel like this image captures his personality so perfectly.

Weddings aren’t something that I usually shoot, but this one was oh so close to my heart. I couldn’t be happier that this image from my little brother’s wedding made it so far in this competition. Feel free to check out the rest of the wedding images here.
