I can’t believe the year is almost over. This has been one of the fastest years that I can remember. Maybe it was because we had so many weddings this year. Well, whatever the reason, the end of the year of here, and 2017 has been a ton of fun. I loved 2017 so much that I decided to do a end of year wedding photo contest.
End of Year Wedding Photo Contest
As far as I can remember, I don’t think I’ve ever done something like this. I really like the idea of it though. I get to show off these great couples and their great photos, and the winner gets a free canvas print. I’m just glad I don’t have to make the decision because there are so many great photos this year. Whoever has the most votes by the end of the year will win.
So I bought a plugin to run this photo contest, and there has been a few weird things. It’s supposed to be able to track voters by IP address so they can only vote once, but it wasn’t working. To fix the issue and control voting, I had to put an email verification on it. Basically you have to put in your email when you vote and then open the email. It’s not a big deal, but it’s one extra step people have to take, and I’m sure it’s stopped some from voting.
If you haven’t voted yet in my end of year wedding photo contest, you still have plenty of time. Take a look at the photos, and if you want to learn more about the couples, you can type in their name into the search bar on the blog. Most likely I’ve written something about them already. Thanks one more time to all the couples that trusted me in 2017, and thanks to all the people that have supported me! I’m truly blessed to be able to do this!
