Happy New Year! 2011 was an incredible year for Embrace Life Photography. We had the honor of meeting lots of amazing people, shooting many beautiful occasions, and creating some spectacular photographs along the way. Since we struggled to keep up with sharing everything we’ve done this year, we decided to share our favorite photograph from each 2011 wedding, proposal, and couples’ portrait shoot in one big blog post — with a fun contest attached!

Southern California Wedding Photographer - 00

We feel so blessed to have met and worked with so many awesome couples in 2011, that we decided to do something special for them to ring in 2012. We’ve set up a voting contest on our Facebook Page. “Like” Embrace Life on Facebook in order to vote for your favorite photograph(s) of 2011.

Our client in the winning photo will win a 16×20 canvas print of that image! Plus, one random voter will be awarded with a One Hour Location Shoot at Leo Carrillo State Beach in Malibu, CA and one 8×10 print! All you have to do is vote!

Check out our favorite photographs from 2011 (below). Then, head over to our Facebook page by clicking here and vote for your favorite photograph(s). Voting closes on Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 10pm, so make sure to vote before then.

Happy 2012 everyone! And, enjoy the Best of 2011!
