We nominated 89 Images.

You Voted.

Only ONE Image wins the coveted title.

It’s Time to Reveal the IMAGE of the YEAR.

Real talk; how many times did you correct your boomer gen family members on how leaving a comment on insta works?

The behind the scenes stories are just as intense. One of our couples [ not naming names M + S ] offered to bribe Brett with bottles of his favorite bourbon [ Orphan Barrel Rhetoric if you’re planning ahead for next year’s bribe ] if he would murder some of the competing couples [ to their credit the murdering part was Brett’s idea because he didn’t want to break the rules of the competition by messing with the vote count ].

Julina found the snake that we lost in the office last year. Katie awkwardly pretended to laugh at Brett’s jokes [ as per the norm ]. Anna knitted and attended to her various cat-like creatures. Emma realized she had joined a cult upon employment with us. Sam spent 30 minutes describing smoked meats to us and something about his “Five Star” Chipotle experience. Edric shaved his head. Dennis tried to leave the country. Vince went off on a tangent about his misspent youth. Then, after all of that, we tallied votes like madmen [ and madwomen ].

The Image of the Year

The Coveted Title // SARA+MATT

Sara and Matt might have placed lower in the first round of this competition, but it didn’t stop them from taking the gold in the overall competition and taking first place in this Year’s Image of the Year competition. Some might say it was the bottle of Blanton’s Gold they gave Brett at their wedding reception that helped them win this competition [ other’s would say it was a simply outstanding image mixed with their repeated coercion of their friends and family to vote enough ]

Second Place


Two years in a row folks; two years in a row!  Tobie and DJ were able to win second place in this year’s competition as well as last year’s competition!  Without a doubt one of the more immersive and romantic wedding photographs entered into the competition, we have no doubt that the photograph itself is worthy of the title they so valiantly fought for.

Will they enter the competition a third time and go for the win? This will require them getting married again [ to eachother of course ] and we’d like to encourage them to consider this possibility, as we couldn’t have been happier to be their wedding photographers 🤣

Third Place


Persistence paid off for Taylor and Matt in the competition [ netting third place is NO joke in our yearly competition ]; we watched as they continually begged their friends and family to award Edric’s photograph the prize. photographed in the Hyatt Arcade in downtown cleveland, this wedding photograph showcases not only brilliant architecture, but a brilliantly thought out group wedding photograph!

Katie will be reaching out to you bout whose home we will be 🧻’ing, and we already have the 💉 ready for Emma’s new tattoo!

Behold; The Original 89
