colleen, john, kimberly, cory, october, tomorrow, and all that you can’t leave behind

we’re about to turn this blue monday into a beautiful day so fast it will give two lucky people vertigo. kim and i were sitting here, stuck in a moment you can’t get out of, and we began talking about all the awesome people that drop in on our blog. it’s all because of you, we are. you always leave such awesome comments about our photos and make us feel like rock stars, but if you ever heard us sing you would quickly realize that we are by far no stars of rock.
that statement of non-fiction brings us to 11 o’clock tick tock.
you’re probably saying that i must be an acrobat to talk like this and act like that, but i’m not. i’m just a simple photographer who just so happens to have 2 general admission floor tickets to see real rock stars, U2 at the University of Phoenix stadium in Glendale AZ tomorrow night, oct 20th 2009 at 7pm.
oh, did i mention that i’m giving them away?
this contest is open to everyone, so get a move on! millions will enter, two will win. all you need to do is check out the two sneak peak photos from our awesome couples, colleen and john’s engagement session at balboa park and kimberly and cory’s engagement session in encinitas, then just leave a comment telling one or both couples how much you love them. please do not hold back on the schmoozing people, this is for 2 floor tickets to see U2!
now we realize not everyone can make it to arizona tomorrow, but our couples still love to hear from you. if you are able to make it to the concert tomorrow please include the words “i will follow!” in your comment.
at precisely 11:59pm pst tonight (oct 19th) we will take all the people that said something nice about our couples and included the words “i will follow!”, put their names in a hat and pick one. we’ll announce the winner here and on twitter tonight. if you don’t already follow us, our twitter name is ohanaphoto. for those new to twitter, just click “follow” once you get to our page by clicking here.
good luck every one! see you in az!
you can’t see all of them in these shots, but that’s the point of having a teaser. :)
first up, kimberly and cory.

and now a peek at colleen and john.
more to come from these two smokin hot couples soon!

drumroll please.
and the winner of our two floor tickets to see U2 in Glendale AZ is……….
rachael, please email us asap to let us know if you can or can not make it to the show. if you are unable to make it we’ll draw another name after 7am.
thanks for commenting everyone. please don’t stop now. our couples still love to hear what nice things you have to say about them.

AWESOME photos! You guys are rock stars! :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE the second one! So rad! Your couples are always way hot!

sorry, couldn't read cause i was staring at the awesome eye candy! phoenix said, "whoa! that's a ginormous leaf!!" and lark said, "whoa that's a giant…lord… leaf. it can eat you?" whoa! hahaha :)

That second photo with the leaf is AMAZING! So creative ❤

Ok- Where to start. I LOVE the Red in the first one and the feeling of the never ending love that spirals with the red. SO AWESOME.

And then we move onto the second one and what is not to love- Giant Green leaf- almost reminds me of a heart with a gorgeous couple peeking from behind and it leaves me wanting to see more of her yellow (dress? or shirt?) Gorgeously natural beauty.

I want to see MORE!!
