“Dundie” Awards Series | Lynchburg Wedding Photographer


I have been waiting for so long to share this post! Ya’ll know my love and obsession with The Office has been a part of my business in a few ways. For example, my “Nice To Meet Me Monday” series is inspired by a quote from Date Mike! So it’s only fitting that my very own “superlatives” series represent my favorite show of all time!

I wanted to share a Superlatives post from this years weddings but I also didn’t want to pick the photos myself. So I had to get creative when choosing the top photos in each category. I didn’t want to be the one to pick the winners because I love all my couples!! 🙂 For those wondering how the winners were selected here is my process:

So I have different categories represented and all of our EHP couples who were married in 2019 had a chance to win these awards! I select my favorite images from each wedding in all the categories. I then use my secret panel of judges to help me narrow it down to the top 2 photos in each category. The top 2 photos are then voted on by all my followers on Instagram & Facebook!! The max number of wins per couple was 3.

I am so excited to do one of these every year because this stuff brings me so much joy! Maybe one day I can host an event with my couples at Chilli’s and hand out actual Dundie Awards?? Who else is down for this and would want come?!

These images remind me of all the sweet, fun, and memorable moments I was a part of at each wedding. I really do have the best job and love being able to share fun posts like this with you! I am so blessed by all these new friendships and can’t wait to see their families grow and experience life together! Its crazy to me that this year is already over but I am so excited for all my 2020 couples!

So now its time to reveal the very first
