I vote for Matt and Wendy! What I love most is how fast they fell in love. I feel strongly about love and time. People always think so negatively about it but I believe love has its own pace. It can hit at any moment.

I would like to place my vote for Matt & Jalyn. I am Matt's father, and I am so proud of him, for all he has accomplished and overcome. This wedding is going to be so special to all of us, but aside from Matt & Jalyn, the most special to me. Matt is doing it right, he is strong and couragous and I am going to be lucky enough to watch him take his next step in life. I love Jalyn already as a daughter and am welcoming her into our family with open arms. (it's about time) I am touched by all the stories, and humbled by theirs, to be mentioned and to have been the motivation for a "sooner" wedding. Your "pay it forward" actions with this giveaway is in keeping with Matt and Jalyn's lifestyle and it would be lovely to see them be on the receiving end. Thank you for making for making this oppurtunity possible. What special people you must be!

I am very touched by each of the stories. It wasn't until I heard about this giveaway and then looked at your website and saw your gorgous work that I realized what an incedible oppurtunity this would be for them. Being Matt's mom, I of course am voting for couple 5, knowing how important pictures of this day will be not only to Matt and Jalyn, but to the whole family. Thank you for your generosity.

Amelia and Justin!! You guys have had an amazing response from all of this!! I thank you both for selecting Jalyn and Matt as your top 5! Being a finalist alone has been more than overwhelming for both of them! And I know they've thoroughly enjoyed reading all the comment from family, friends, "Miss G's" students and colleagues.... So just as one last HOORAH, I wanted to say again that I VOTE FOR MATT AND JALYN! (or as our slogan goes, I VOTED 5! TEAM JALYN AND MATT!). Matt and Jalyn give of themselves every single day without complaint or question.They've been together for 10 years, as highschool sweethearts and have always put their friends and family first. They don't make alot of money with Jalyn being a teacher and having been recently laid off, but as Jalyn puts it, "We have what counts, we're happy, we're healthy, and we're lucky to have each other"

*WARNING: This is a HUGE post!

We are so excited to announce our finalists and are even more pleased with the awesome response we've gotten in submissions. There were so many great stories and we're so happy to give back! After reading Jessica Claire's wedding giveaway in January of 2008 we were really inspired as to how we could give back after the outpouring of love we saw from our auction last December.

We finally were able to narrow down all of the many submissions to five! We were originally going to only take three finalists, but after much thought and contemplation we strongly feel that these five finalist couples deserve a fighting chance for our Big Wedding Photography Giveaway!

So here's how it works: We have chosen a group of 12 special individuals who's generosity and compassion we trust to help choose the winning couple. But here's the important part, we need your help! LEAVE A COMMENT at the bottom of this post to cheer on and vote for the couple that you think deserves to win!

Couple Number One: Kristin and Steve
Story submitted by Kristin's brother in law Mike

Kristin is newly engaged to a great guy Steve (who is divorced, and a single dad of 1). They met at work. They leaned on each other for emotional support and helped each other during very trying times with their respective relationships. In time they became great friends and this kinship has blossomed into a marriage. When Steve and Kristin first met, all anyone noticed was how much they each came alive and seemed more happy then either of them had been for years. Anyone who has seen Kristin and Steve together can't get over how perfect for each other they are in quite possibly every way, they are both goofy and loveable and outgoing individuals. They have given each other the strength over the past year to overcome a lot of hard times and together have become closer to the Lord and much stronger invividuals, they truly bring out the best in each other. They are both from humble families who are not able to contribute much to their wedding, all the expenses are falling on their shoulders and are paying for nearly everything themselves. They are going to have to cut many things out; like catering, a wedding venue... they just want to be together and enter the next stage in their life together. Kristin has said she doesn't care being able to go all out for a wedding she only cares about being with Steve. Because the truly make each other happy. To make matter worse Kristin's Dad was recently in the hospital for life threatening reasons over the holiday season, the situation has been really hard on the family. As you can imagine this has hit all the family members very hard. I think with all that they are having to go through that this would be a huge up-lift to their family's situation. Photography is a huge passion of Kristin's. Should they be picked... I know this will mean a great deal to them and the rest of our family. It will help them begin their marriage together and family in a more positive light.

Couple Number Two: Rachelle and Patrick
Story submitted by Rachelle's friend Marialisa

Her name is Rachelle, Chelle to everyone who has the chance to meet such an amazing woman.  I met Chelle when I was just 15 years old, and we instantly became close friends. Everything about her is infectious to those around her. Her beauty, her joyous laugh, her unique style, Her musical talents, her love for those around her, but, most of all her love for Patrick, her Fiancee'. Patrick and Rachelle met nine years ago in a church youth group. I believe that it was love at first sight. How could any girl resist a guitarist with a passion for music and God? It has been over nine years since Chelle first laid her eyes upon that gangly guitarist with the wide smile and deep dimples. And through those nine years Pat has been such an amazing friend, boyfriend, and just recently an amazing Fiancee'. These last couple of years were hard on them, not only financially (one of the main reasons it took so long to become engaged) but emotionally as well. Patrick has been so faithful in his position as her comforter and best friend not only through her parents divorce but, through the death of her Grandmother & her beloved Grandfather. I cannot only speak on my behalf, but for countless others when I say it is about time they are to be wed. We all jumped for joy at the news of the engagement. Being engaged is the only thing that has brought pure joy into Chelle, these past few months. You see, she has been taking care of her Aunt for six months who was diagnosed with lung cancer that has spread throughout her body, into her brain. Day in and Day out, Chelle is by her bedside. Cooking her food, changing her diapers, giving her medication for her pain, and reminding her of God's never failing love. Her aunt has no husband, or children to take care of her. However, Rachelle has set aside her anxiousness to do all the things a Bride to Be would do, to make her aunt as comfortable as she can. Family comes first. I can say that Rachelle and Patrick deserve to win your contest, just out of the love they have shown to not only my Husband and I, children in the youth group they are pastors of, but to everyone they meet. You will never meet another couple as unselfish and giving as they are. It does not matter what challenges I have ever faced, Chelle has been there with a word of encouragement, a prayer or just a hug when I needed it most. Please help me and bless them with winning a contest they so much deserve. I know that we have looked at your photography and just drooled at the thought of being able to have you as the photographer of her wedding. She would be the Happiest "bride to be", I have been the luckiest person to call Patrick and Rachelle, Best Friends.

Couple Number Three: Matt and Wendy
Story submitted by Wendy.

Matthew and I met several years ago and looking back I don't think either of us would have imagined that we would be getting married in a few short months. We were very good friends in the beginning who enjoyed going skating with friends and taking trips to the beach. We had a passion for life and bringing others together. Somewhere along the way we started hanging out less and less with everyone else and more and more with each other. Our dating relationship was put on hold when Matt received some disturbing news following a routine physical. Matt was told that he had a brain tumor and that they would need to operate soon. I couldn't believe it. I was so nervous about what would happen to him and if he would ever be the same again. Matt was strong and never showed any signs of despair. He told me that God does not give us things that we cannot handle and that whatever the outcome may be he would be alright. So many people offered their prayers and fasted on his behalf. Matt's surgery was a success however the recovery was a bit difficult. The doctors were forced to take away his hearing in his right ear. Matt turned something like his hearing loss into a joke and said that it would be easier to get to sleep. His positive outlook continued to leave a lasting impression on me. The next few years of courtship brought about each of us trying to finish school and to find some way to prepare for life in the real world. Just when I thought things were going great and that we might start to make a life together Matt lost his job. It was a rough time and we didn't really have any money. I waitressed while trying to finish up my classes. Finally the day came when we graduated. Jobs were scarce for new graduates with little experience so we decided that I would go on and get my master's degree. Matt decided to make a complete change and prepare for dental school. Everyone told us we were crazy but Matt was smart and wanted a job where he could spend more time with his family and where I would not have to work. We continued on with our plans and to grow as a couple. I just graduated this last year and started to work at a nearby hospital. I love my job but the money I've started to save doesn't seem to be enough. The economy has taken a hard toll on my family and my parents are on the verge of bankruptcy. They have always been there to support me and I don't want to burden them with the expenses of a wedding.  I truly believe that Matt is my eternal companion. We have been getting an outpouring of love and support from everyone around us who are supportive of Matt and me in taking this exciting step in life.

Couple Number Four: Jason and Kristina
Story submitted by Jason

We'd been dating for 7 years before I proposed.  Somewhere in the middle of all that, there was this unspoken agreement that we would get married and live happily ever after.  We hoped to finish school, save up for a nice big wedding, hopefully move into a beautiful home, and start a lovely family.  In 2005, Kristina finished nursing school, and both of us were on a mission to cross off another milestone on our list.  We wanted to have a nice Catholic wedding with all of our friends and family present.  We were saving every little penny in hopes for that fairy tale wedding that she really deserved.  Things were really looking optimistic, but as we all know, dreams and reality can sometimes be so far apart from each other.  In late 2005, Kristina's mother, Rachiel, was diagnosed with Breast cancer.  Just a few months later, Kristina's father, Salvador lost his job.  It really put life into perspective for Kristina and myself.  Our plans and dreams had to be put on the backburner.  As you know, seeing your beloved family member go through a horrible disease can really put fear and distress in your life.  Kristina felt confused and helpless.  The thoughts of her mother not being around really scared the both of us.  Kristina's mother went through many diagnostic tests to stage the cancer and see if it had metastasized.  She had a bilateral mastectomy, which left her physically and emotionally scarred.  Her battle with chemotherapy left her bald for 3 months.  A good day never seemed to be in sight.  Rachiel had to take medical leave from work in order to focus on her health.  With her mom taking a leave of absence and her dad unemployed, bills seemed to pile up really fast. In that year, Kristina seemed to grow up instantly.  Without hesitation, Kristina sacrificed all her plans to pay off her student loans, monthly bills, and her dream wedding in order for her mom and dad to slowly recover and get back on their feet.  Kristina took on a majority of the monthly mortgage and medical bills on top of her own debt.  She constantly took on extra 12-hr shifts at the hospital in order to pay the piling bills.  To say the least, she has been the ultimate trooper. Both, Kristina and I are firm believers in faith and determination.  There were many times where Kristina could have lost hope and really embraced a selfish attitude, but her loving and caring nature overcame all other emotions.  We cut back on a lot of luxuries in order to make her parents' transition work, and she never once complained.   Almost 5 years later, her mom has been in remission with her cancer and her dad found a more fulfilling job working for their local church.  Kristina's efforts and sacrifice have truly made a difference in both her parents' recovery.  Her story and struggle remind me of your dad's situation.  In the face of family tragedy, love empowers us to make the right decisions and help in any way we can. She's a beautiful woman, inside and out, and I want us to be able to look back at the photos and reminisce about our wedding day and the efforts it took to get there.

Couple Number Five: Jalyn and Matt
Story submitted by Kristine and by Kara

They met through a simple act of kindness. During summer school of 1999, Matt was feeling extremely sick to his stomach. Although everyone in class noticed and felt sorry for his distress, Jalyn actually got up out of class and bought him a drink from the vending machine to ease his discomfort. It was a simple act of kindness, but it touched Matt in a special way because only a few short months later they began dating. To this day, they are high school sweethearts and have been for over10 years. Having known Jalyn personally, I can tell you that her acts of kindness come to no surprise. That's just who she is. SELFLESS, loving, genuine, dependable, and without a doubt, a ray of sunshine. She could literally walk into a room and captivate an audience with her contagious laugh and warm hearted spirit. As a high school history teacher, she is a role model every day-- whether it's presiding as an academic educator, being a mentor for teenage students to confide in, or rallying in the name of education and the future of children by defending her fellow teachers from being pink slipped. That's just who she is. Matt, on the other hand, is Jalyn's rock. He's had so many misfortunes and difficult situations throughout his life -- and these experiences have enabled him to mature earlier on during our teenage years. Therefore, I've always known Matt to be strong, rational, nonjudgmental, protective, and unwavering. He holds alot in and he's not very good at expressing himself, but as a couple, both Matt and Jalyn are extremely loyal and generous beyond words. To them, the love they have for their family and friends is everything, and there have been numerous instances when both of them have had to make huge sacrifices to help a loved one out. Their doors are always open and they are constantly putting others before themselves without asking for anything in return. I can assure you, that if you select them as one of your final three, you will be overwhelmed too by the amount of love and RESPECT many people have for Matt and Jalyn! In 2006, Matt's dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer that metastasized to his thigh bone, shoulder, and skull. Although treatment blessed him into remission for a moment's time, he was again diagnosed this past September with colo-rectal cancer in addition to his prostate cancer. Then, this past November before a family vacation to Hawaii, an xray which was intended for his abdomen, caught a glimpse of his lower lung which suggested that the cancer had spread there too. Currently, Matt's dad is undergoing testing and care planning to determine the severity of his condition.  Although Matt and Jalyn have talked about marriage for quite some time (this girl was planning her wedding since we were in the 11th grade!), they were holding off until they were financially stable. With the health issues surrounding Matt's dad however, they've decided to make the wedding happen as soon as possible and are praying that Matt's dad will be able to witness their celebration of love! Although Jalyn may have had different fantasies regarding the wedding she dreamed about in high school-- to her, standing next to Matt and taking care of his heart by honoring his dad is more than enough. She always loved unconditionally...

Laura said:
Wow, when I read the first story I wondered who could be any worse off than that? Then I began thinking, how are you going to pick? I pick Matt and Wendy. If they made it through cancer treatment together, they can make it through marriage together. There is something special about a caregiver and a survivor being married to each other. I'm a young adult cancer survivor myself and couldn't have made it through without my eternal companion. Those types of situations will either divide people or bring them closer together. I applaud the rest for taking care of their family members, but there is just something extra special about Wendy caring for Matt when she had other options. I also know that their medical bills are not at an end. Those extensive check-ups happen often and go on for at least 5 years. I love it that he wants to take care of her and spend more time with his family. Those are all building blocks of a long lasting marriage as well as a happy and healthy family. And she dreams of being married to him, no matter the sacrifice. Good luck! And Happy New Year!

Couple #1 Kristin and Steve! Kristin has been one of my best friends for over 10 years now. I have seen her survive good times and bad, Ive seen her date some frogs, The moment I met Steve I knew she had found the one. This couple when they are together just makes you want to smile, even though both of them have endured heart breaking trials they have not let it destroy their happy natures. They are caring and loveing people and deserve to have a special day!

Jalyn (Ms.G) totally deserves this. She works so hard as a teacher and did anything to help me understand the material so I could pass her class. I wasn't the best student in the world and she made it possible for me to earn my credits to pass high school. I highly respect her as not only a teacher, but also a friend. She totally deserves this :]

All the couples are very deserving of such a tremendous gift, but knowing Jalyn as I do, I urge you to choose Jalyn and Matt. This is an amazing couple! Jalyn gives of herself constantly. She met Matt and had her life planned.... they both got great jobs, worked hard, continued on with her education with her eye on the prize, a wedding of her dreams. But Family means more than that to Jalyn, so just in case things turn from bad to worse with her future Father-in-law, she is planning their wedding. Matt is totally supportive and they are doing the best with what they have. Teachers don't make a lot and Jalyn does not want to start their life together by putting Matt in debt. The gift of photography would be such a blessing which will be repaid in a multitude of ways by this incredibly giving couple! I give my loving vote to Jalyn and Matt!

I vote for couple #1 Kristin and Steve! I am partial since I'm Kristin's mother but I know how difficult it has been for her to see our family going through this situation. She told me that if she couldn't have a reception it would be ok since she would still have Steve! She loves photography and would appreciate having this event so beautifully recorded for years to come.

Jalyn and I met while living in the dorms together in college and became roommates for the remainder of our undergrad years. I knew from the first day I met her that her love for Matt was unwavering and upon meeting Matt, I knew his loyalty to her was unfaltering. I remember being somewhat taken back when Jalyn showed me her "wedding box" back in the dorms. I had never met anybody so sure of what love is and so confident that she had found it. Nothing makes me happier than to see these two finally say "I do"....it's been a long time coming.

I am Wendy's Aunt Lynn and I can think of no nicer, young, deserving lady than Wendy. She is a very genuine person who has done many things to help lots of people ion her community. Wendy is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Matt and Wendy have been a strong couple for seven years and now their time has come to join together in marriage. They are a very responsible couple but have had some hardships along the way. My brother and his wife have had some hardships also and are now trying to get back on track financially. The expense of a wedding will be an added strain but I know they want what is best for Wendy and Matt. You would be doing a great service to let Wendy and Matt win your services. Thank you for doing this!

I am voting for my sister Wendy and my soon to be brother in law Matt. I am very excited to have this wedding take place. My sister has been waiting along time for her wedding day and I know that she wants to have it be the best. Wendy has always been the type that doesn't ask for much and will try to do it by herself. These last couple of years have been a little harder with her trying to finish her master and Matt trying to find a job that I think it caused them great stress and they didn't want to get married like that. Wendy was able to find a job and Matt is starting dental school and it seems like things were going good so it felt right to get married until we heard that my parents were going to file for bankruptcy, that broke Wendy's heart and now she is really nervous about the money for the wedding. Wendy and Matt deserve this more than anyone else. They have always given back and I think it is there turn to receive. Please choose my sister.

I know Matt and Wendy should win. Through everything they've always been there for eachother. With Matt's brain tumor wendy could have easily stepped back and it would have been understandable but they stood next to eachother as strong as ever.Like nothing new was going in. They are always positive and motivated with any challenge that comes their way. it's been a long 7 years with many hurdles along the way but they've made it with their love for eachother, and I couldn't be more excited for them to finally get their special day. i know this would mean so much to them.

JALYN AND MATT!!!!! this story hit home for us :( we just learned kim's dad has prostate cancer, it has metastasized to his bones and they found a lump on his lung. the doctors haven't given him that much time to live, and this christmas was the first we spent without him, because he hasn't gotten out of bed :( with all that said, this couple wins our heart and our vote. our thoughts and prayers are with them.

Where do I begin to tell you about Matt and Wendy, and why they should win. These two have an unconditional love for one another. A love that is truly something amazing. They bring so much laughter and happiness to others around them. Matt and Wendy make the cutest couple and really have been through thick and thin together. Tieing the knot and making it eternal is special for anyone. But in my opinion it is extra special for these two crazy kids. Amelia I am a personal fan of your work and having you be their photogher for there special day would just make their day a thousand times better. So that when they look back they'll have AMAZING photos to remember it by! Choose Matty and Wendy!

Whitney Young said:
I think that couple #3 has been working the hardest to overcome so many difficulties. I know their relationship has grown so much over the course of some of the most challenging years of their lives. But they've been able to maintain each other's support and love, and I know their love will last for eternity. But sometimes they can't make it on their own and so they need help to get them started into a more positive chapter in their lives.
(12.28.09 11:37 PM)
Jeff Mellen said:
Matthew and Wendy have been dating for about 7 years now but due to them going to school and a lack of money, they really never had enough money to get married. Now that matt has popped the question, everyone is really excited but there is still a lack of money to deal with. I am wendys younger brother and am looking to go to a UC for college. My parents will have to help me pay for that so giving money to my sisters wedding will be difficult.

I feel that the couple that are most deserving of this Photography giveaway is couple number 3:Matt and Wendy. Their story truely touched my heart with their 7 year long relationship, along with the problems they have over come together like when Matt was told of his unfortunate brain tumor. I feel like they are meant for eachother after all they have been through and they deserve the best photography to capture the priceless moments that they will remember forever on the day that they will be pronounced Husband and Wife

Although all the stories are really good, couple #4 really captured my heart. Each couple had to deal with many issues but having to take care of your family financially and emotionally can be extremely stressful. Kristina showed so much unconditional love for her family. I vote for couple #4.

Matt and Jalyn are an awesome couple! They really are so very giving to others and their love and devotion for each other is astounding. I spent a week rooming with Jalyn in Philadelphia last summer and Matt has to be a great man. He listens to her snore every night! :) It was obvious they missed each other tremendously that week--Jalyn brought one of Matt's shirts to sleep with so she could smell him all week and they talked every night before going to bed. That, plus the recent hardships in their lives prove that they deserve this prize. Matt and Jalyn--I love you guys!

Jalyn and Matt have my vote. Your wedding day is suppose to be all about you. A selfish time in your life, which should be all about you and your partner. Giving up your dreams to honor another is truly self-less. I hope they win so that at least the photography part of their wedding is top notch and forever memorable!

Couple #3 gets my vote! Wendy didn't share even half their story. They have been dating on & off for as long as I can remember, like 10+ years. I remember them dating before he went on a 2year mission for our church and then again after he returned. This is such a BIG deal that he FINALLY proposed. I think it is GREAT that they have been able to finish their schooling, gone through a LOT of ups and downs, struggles and challanges, wins and losses and are still togehter. You know how a tradtional marriage ceremony says something about through sickness and through health, for better or worse...well they have made it through ALL that before marriage. NOW they can move forward, heading toward their destination as an eternal husband & wife. This win would be SUCH a BIG blessing for the both of them.

Hello, we heard about Jalyn and Matt's submission earlier this morning when one of our colleagues presented their story during our conference class. As a profession, we are all about making strong statements through signed petitions. Easily, we can send you an email or use this comment form to type in the #of attendees that are present right now during this conference class. However, we'd like to make a profound stand in our loving support for couple#5, Jalyn and Matt. We only have 2 computers present at this time, therefore, to expedite the signatures with our allotted conference time, our secretary will be collecting paper ballots (handed out earlier during the presentation of Ms. Guidangen and Mr. Barnard) and entering the comments and email addresses. Thanks so much for your kindness in this giveaway. I am sure that all the couples are worthwhile and deserving of such a great gift! We all wish that they could all win and benefit! But we are sure that the comments from supporters alone, is worthwhile enough.

Although all the couples seem deserving, my heart lies with Couple #5 - Matt & Jalyn. They are the epitome of unconditional love. No matter what obstacles they have faced, they have always been a strong support for one another. Many of us can only dream of experiencing the love that this couple shares.

My vote is for #1!!!!! Kristin and Steve are the most generous couple I know. Kristin is the most sweet and caring girl! She has gone through so much in her life and has risen above it all and has become such a awsome person because of all of her trials. I look up to her. She couldn't of found a more perfect guy for her to be sealed to for all time and eternity!!!

# 4 Jason and Kristina. I think couple number 4 deserves this soooooo much. The way Kristina gave her time and money to help others when she could have been selfish just makes her so amazing. She IS indeed a beautiful person and deserves to be rewarded for her sacrifices. She is an inspriation and showed kindness. All the stories are very touching, but she is the one that seems like she actually gave up soooo much, in order to help others. My vote is definitely for Jason and Kristina, couple #4!!!!

Wendy has compassion for those around her and a wonderful sense of humor. Wendy will be the most beautiful bride! I vote for Wendy and Matt!

I am here to vote for my Great Friends Matt and Wendy. I have been there through the entire relationship. I have seen Wendy be a trooper when Matt had his surgery and everyone would tell her his not going to marry you or that she should find someone else. Wendy has been there for Matt all the Way :) Matt has been a great friend and example to me by far as well. He has helped me and so many other people around him with his passion for goodness and to be a better person for himself. Matt and Wendy would be two lost souls with out each other. They truly are a great couple and i Know with my heart they would be ever grateful for the opportunity your company would bless them with ♥ Thank you Rosalinda

Matt and Wendy have a story far greater than was described on the page. Almost all of their friends, if not all of them, have gotten married in the 6-7 years they have dated. They have been such a support and match for each other, and I have never ever seen any couple garner so much of a positive response with the announcement of their engagement. One man I know of gave a fitting comment: "Now I can rest in peace." Literally hundredS of people have rejoiced with their long-awaited news. Individually, they are shining examples of great people -- people you'd truly want to have as friends. I love 'em! What a great couple with a wonderful story who have long-anticipated their marriage. Way-to-go on waiting so long and faithfully, Wendy! :)

Jalyn and Matt! She was my Gov/Econ teacher and she honestly deserves this. She is a role model in so many ways. Even though I don't know much about Matt I do know that their love is genuine and she loves him very much. So I vote for them.

Kristina's story is so heart-felt. supporting your family emotionally and financially is a real sacrifice. Her time and money cannot be replaced, but winning this giveaway can be a real reward for her willingness to help her family! Couple number 4 gets my vote.

I went to school with Jalyn and Matt and remember what a cute couple they always were from day one! I think they deserve to win because they are awesome individuals who love each other greatly and winning would be a way of honoring their love and paying back a little of all the kindness that they give, MY VOTE IS FOR JAYLYN AND MATT congrats to the both of them glad to hear they are finally tying the knot!!! My prayers go out to Matt's father so he can witness the going of these two!

I think that Matt and Wendy should be the winners! The judges gave a hard choice to make by far! But, after reading the stories, I truly felt that Wendy's message was the most heartfelt and their is something about how Wendy talked about Matt and the things that they have been through! GOod luck Wendy and Matt!

I vote for couple number 5 because they truly deserve it. Jalyn is an outstanding teacher. She pushes her students to their highest potential and it is great to see them succeed.

I was always encouraged by her words and how she would encourage my other fellow classmates at Martin Luther King High School.

I vote #4 Jason and Kristina! They have been together for close to 8 years, were high school sweethearts, and have know each other since 1997. I have seen them go through life's ups and downs together, supporting each other at all times. I remember Kristina always telling me that she wanted to get married as soon as she finished school. Trying to save up all that she could, she went through nursing school and continued to work full time. She is a hard working person and always puts 100% into everything she does. She chose to put a hold on her wedding plans to help out her family. I really don't know many people that would do the same. Now that Jason and Kristina are finally getting married, I know that they would really appreciate this. Please choose couple number four Jason and Kristina!

"Although Jalyn may have had different fantasies regarding the wedding she dreamed about in high school-- to her, standing next to Matt and taking care of his heart by honoring his dad is more than enough. She always loved unconditionally..." THAT was incredible, how do you not vote for them... They have my vote!!! Matt and Jalyn, I wish you two the best!

The couple that are most deserving of this $7000 Photography package is couple #3: Matt and Wendy. Seems like they have been through rough times together and their love is obviously very strong.

I really think Matt and Wendy (#3) deserve this. Long relationships take a hard toll, especially when unexpected things happen like his brain tumor. Their relationship seems like it will last for many years to come, as well as into the eternities. Money is pretty tight lately, and it seems because they have been in school for so many years, that this could be a wonderful opportunity to save some money. I think #3 is the best choice.

I would go with couple number three, Matt and Wendy, I have know Matt and Wendy for almost 3 years now and they are a great couple I was so excited when I heard on Christmas Day that they were getting married. It couldn't happen to to two better people. They are that kind of people that even if someone doesn't know them that well they make them feel comfortable. Matt and Wendy are such a good couple and any support I can give them in this exciting new step in their live is a plus.

I vote for Matt and Jalyn (Couple #5). Jalyn has been a wonderful friend to my wife over the years. As you can see from previous comments, she is selfless and has a very caring heart. Matt is the same way, he has a lot of character and is very loyal to Jalyn and his family. I believe that Matt and Jalyn would cherish the moments you capture with your camera of their beautiful wedding day. But more importantly, I know they will cherish the moments you capture of their father, forever.

I am the Mother of Steven. I have watched this young man go thru so much in so little time. He is a Wonderful son and we couldn't ask for a better mate for him then Kristen. They each bring so much to their relationship. They make each other happy and have the same vaules in their God and Family. I vote for them because they are so humble and just want to get married without putting any pressure on their struggling parents and family.

Patrick and Rachelle should win..I know them personally. They are both caring loving and God Fearing people.. They have lived Godly lives..Teaching the youth group how and why to stay pure for their God given mate. By example,,, How to respect themselves and love each other as God loves them.. They have been together for ten years and have shown true love for themselves and others.. Always a friend to all, and showing the true love of God. Patrick and Rachelle truly deserves this..

I've already posted once but I feel like I should say a little more... I'm not sure if the panel of judges is going to just count up the votes, or if they'll take comments like this into consideration but I wanna add my support to Matt and Wendy. Matt's one of the great friends I've had in life. We've spent many a night, sitting out on the tailgate of his truck in front of his house talking about this very relationship... I know how much he's gone through emotionally to get to this point. And I suppose only he and Wendy can really appreciate the distance they've come. Wendy has also been a great friend for better than 10 years. I know her before she and Matt ever had an eye for each other. Her positivity and optimism has always impressed me. The great thing is that if they don't win, they'll be alright. I know they'll find a way to make things happen. But if any two people I know, should ever deserve such a simple yet significant demonstration of love and support. It's these two! Love you guys!

I think MATT & WENDY should win this contest. They have been through more than most couples experience before they get married, so I know that their big day means so much to them. I have known Wendy and her family since we were children, and I also know that winning this contest would help to remove some of the stress that comes with planning a wedding. Please pick MATT & WENDY!!!!

I'm pulling for couple #5 Matt and Jalyn!!! Okay so my real name is not "Panda" but that is what many know me as, one of them being Jalyn. She was my teacher during my senior year of high school. All of her students know her as Ms. G but I like to call her my "Mama G." I've only known her for a little over a year and already she has become one of my closest friends and an amazing role model. It would be so great if she and Matt won this contest because they truly deserve it. My Mama G is such a selfless, consdierate, and good-hearted person. Work for her is not just the usualy bell-to-bell schedule like most teachers. From the long hours of grading, to the chaperoning of dances and field trips, to those rgent messages she gets from me when I need advice and am freaking out, she NEVER stops working. I would love to see them have the perfect wedding. The first time I saw them together in person, I knew it was meant to be. Even when they're just buying shampoo at Target, their fun, honest, and loving relationship shows. This beautiful photgraphy package would be a great gift for these two. And I know was one of her past students that I would love to see the pictures of the wedding! So, GO MATT AND JALYN!!! :)

Hey EJ, Not sure if you left me the comment about our LYON-SHOP being cliche...if it was you, I'm sure you just don't understand. While our LYON-SHOP may look cliche from the outside I know that each workshop is different because each studio runs their business differently. We don't just teach shooting technique, we teach post processing, time-management, marketing, etc...these are all things we've learned through experience and if someone wants to pay and come learn from us in order to better their own business, then why is this a bad thing?! If this isn't the "ej" that left that comment on our blog, then I do apologize, I just had to try and address the issue to clear the air. Happy Tuesday!
