I know we don’t usually post on Sundays, but we have some exciting news we really couldn’t wait to share. This February we’re celebrating the month of love with love! We’re partnering with the amazing Christie Pham Photography to give one lucky same-sex couple a free styled engagement shoot in Hawaii!
2015 was a huge year for love (#lovewins!) and since this is the month of love, we wanted to get together and show our support (and love) for the LGBT community. So, we thought, what better way than to put together a fun engagement shoot for a gay couple? We’re in the business of celebrating all love, it’s why we do what we do, so the #CelebratingAllLove giveaway was born. We want to celebrate your love and all the beauty and joy that encompasses.

Are you excited? We certainly are. So, here are the details on the contest:
The styled engagement shoot will take place on Sunday, February 21st on Oahu, Hawaii and will be shot by Christie and designed by yours truly! You don’t have to live in Hawaii to enter, but you do need to be in Oahu on 2/21 in order to enter. By the way, if you don’t live in Hawaii, tickets to Hawaii are quite cheap right now, so if you need a little romantic getaway, this can be your perfect excuse!
Since we’re celebrating all love, this contest is all about love. So to enter, we want to see a photo (or video) of you and how you celebrate love. It can be anything from a kiss on the cheek to making dinner to your favorite activity together to the weird language you use together. Please keep it PG (no nudity), but otherwise, you can share anything that shows us how you celebrate love. The most inspiring entry will win!
Here’s how to enter the Celebrating All Love giveaway:
2) Post an image (or a short 15 sec video) on our Celebrating All Love contest event page showing how you celebrate love.
3) In the comments of your post, please also share a few words on how you like to celebrate love. And use the following hashtags: #loveislove, #celebratingalllove
And that’s it! The contest will be running from February 8th through February 12th and the lucky winner will be announced on February 14th, Valentine’s Day! Can you think of a more romantic gift than that?
You have only 5 days to post your photos starting next week, so make sure you enter! We can’t wait to be inspired and see how all you lovely couples celebrate love.
For all the super fun legal stuff on our contest, please see below.
