Mike & Sam

I returned from maternity leave in July with a contest. The Great Love Story Contest! I really enjoyed reading every entry that came in and watching as the contestants duked it out in a battle to get the most likes. I love how competitive these contests get, it's so fun! I enjoy them so much that it's going to become an annual thing...so keep an eye out for that in 2018.

The contest was close, but in the end there was a clear winner. Mike and Sam. If you don't remember their story, here it is:

Hi! We are Mike and Sam from Weirton, WV. While we met online, our love truly blossomed when Mike moved from Columbus to start a life together. We have only gotten stronger with time as life has thrown us many curveballs, but 3 and a half years later, we are happily planning our wedding and our forever!

I immediately contacted them to set up their session and they opted to wait for October to arrive before doing the session. When their chosen date rolled around, it was a dreary, drizzly day and I almost considered rescheduling. I'm so glad we didn't. The overcast made for lovely lighting and the light rain made for some steamy pictures. Mike and Sam killed it! They are such a sweet couple and so fun to work with. Also, they're nerds like me, so there was an instant connection!

Introducing the first Annual Great Love Story Contest winners! Don't they look amazing?!
