We are beyond excited and pleased to announce that our photo has been selected as the winner of Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Best of Rockford Region photo contest! First of all, we want to thank everyone who has voted for the photo and the RACVB board for the recognition.
We love living and working in the Rockford area and as our posts/photos show, we are always out and about and active in the community. This award means a lot to us as photography is a very passionate subject. Just like a melody to a musician, so is the photo to the photographer.
As far as what it took to get the shot, well that’s another story. First, we had to scout a few locations we thought would make a great photo. Then the real work began. Multiple trips were made to downtown Rockford to capture just the perfect lighting and mood. We tried being there at the crack of dawn and watched the sun set over the skyline. After we had a couple dozen photos we thought were pretty decent, then we had to narrow it down to 3 photos, and that’s always the hardest part.
We would also like to congratulate all the other awesome contestants and can’t wait what other awesome images the Rockford community keeps producing!
