Sponsors & Winners!!

We are in Chicago setting up for our last stop on this leg of the tour, but we just wanted to hop on real quick to thank our newest sponsors and to announce the winner of the WPPI Photoshoot seat!!

First up, big bear hug thanks go to our good friend Davina for offering up a discount code for all of the attendees of Spread the Love, as well as to give away one of her GTKY kits at each of the stops! We will email soon with details on that!

We are also super thankful to our San Diego hosts, Jared & Garrett, for getting on board with their company Shoot Dot Edit to offer discounts on editing, as well as to giveaway one full editing job!! Again, if you were at a Spread the Love check your email soon (tomorrowish!) for details on that!

And finally, we are so proud to announce the winner of our “What inspires you?” contest and a free seat to the WPPI Photoshoot put on by Laura Marchbanks to benefit Portrait House……….Brent Pilgrim!!!! This contest was WAYYY too hard for us to choose, so we selfishly enlisted the help of a panel of friends & family to help us choose the winner. We were all blown away by the selflessness of this couple. The way that they push each other & sacrifice for one another inspired all of us. Patti & Brent, we can’t wait to meet BOTH of you in Vegas!!!

Here we go! Last stop….don’t get scared now!
Windy City-ly yours,

    I read Brent’s entry right after I posted my own entry. And right then and there I swear I knew he should and would win this photoshoot seat. Well deserved!!

  2. Brent Pilgrim

    I am having such a hard time typing right now. Holy smokes, I am so happy. I can’t wait to let Patti know, she had no clue I wrote in. I just literally jumped up and down, I don’t know if I’ve ever done that. I have to call her at work, haha. Hugs for everyone when we get there! Thank you so very much Justin & Mary, you’ve just made this adventure so much more incredible!

    Holly cow!!! What a shock! I am sitting here at work with tears streaming down my face. Brent just called me and let me in on his little secret mission. I do not know if I am crying because of the excitment I hear in Brent’s voice or because I just can’t believe how sweet all of you are! Thank you so much for g

  4. Patti McDougall

    opps, I hit sent by mistake….
    As I was saying, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to share this exciting experience not only with the man I love and admire, but with all of you. I can’t wait to meet you as well! Thank you to Emily as well for your well wishes…
    Lastly, to Brent you are my baby, my life, my partner, my inspiration, my motivation. xox
