Today kicks off week 10 of our Photo of the Week contest on Facebook. We’ve seen some fantastic images submitted over the past two and a half months, and it’s fun to see the fans participate in choosing their favorites. We hope to see more cool photos from the SnapKnot community over the coming weeks.
We really liked the perspective in this black and white photo, and a lot of users agreed with us. Chelsea received great support from Facebook users in the form of likes and comments on her photo. We give a lot of weight to what our fans think is the best photo when we pick a winner.
If a smile is worth 1,000 words then Marie’s must be worth a million! She looked amazing as she and Pat wed during an outdoor ceremony this month at the Crystal Lake Golf Club in Burriville, Rhode Island. You might remember seeing the engagement photos I took of Marie & Pat in Wilcox Park as well as their maternity portraits. They were also the “winners” of the Caster Creations 2010 Photography Contest. When I reached 500 fans on FB, I chose a lucky couple at random to receive a day of wedding photography. (I’m now up to 753 fans–so keep spreading the word!) Thanks to Sara Bynum of Sara’s Photography in Westerly for accompanying me for this beautiful wedding. I loved the creative favors which were appropriately called “Elly Beans,” named after Marie & Pat’s adorable almost one year-old daughter, who was also the flower girl! Congratulations Marie & Pat! I am so happy to have captured so many happy memories from your big day!
This week’s winner of our Facebook Photo of the Week contest was Jessica Hannon for this photo from the engagement shoot of Sarah and Bret
Great use of light in this fun image of the couple!
Last week we started what we hope will become a regular event over on the SnapKnot Facebook page: a weekly photo contest. We had a good number of solid entries in the inaugural week and some nice comments on the participating photographers’ images.
Facebook has announced that all new photo uploads will have a maximum size of 720 pixels, up from the old 604 pixels. Older images will remain unchanged, but this is great news for wedding photographers uploading sample galleries of their work to the popular social network.no comments
