Paintball TTD Shoot by Joey T Photography, Plus $700 Engagement-Shoot GIVEAWAY!

We know some of y’all have mixed feelings about trash-the-dress shoots, and we’re with ya on that. But Tiffany and Ted’s absolutely awesome paintball TTD shoot is one that just makes us smile. Shot by the terrifically talented Joey Thomas of Joey T Photography at Tank’s Paintball Park in Katy, this shoot is everything a TTD shoot should IOHO: playful, joyful, unique…and just so darn hot.

Side note about Tiffany’s dress: “I bought it a week after I was engaged. My maid of honor and I went to the Brides Against Breast Cancer Tour as our first bridal event. I tried on a couple dresses to get more of an idea of what I liked, and I found the one, for an affordable price and a great cause.”

How cool is that? How gorgeous are Tiffany and Ted? How great is it that they can look so sophisticated, and yet not take themselves too seriously? How CUTE are the color-coordinated accessories and paintball splotches? How much do you love Joey T’s utterly beautiful images?

How’d you like to see yourself and your future hubby through this top Houston wedding photographer’s lens??

Here’s your chance! We are giving away not one but TWO $700 Joey T Photography engagement shoots, complete with two hours of on-location photography in the greater Houston area, and a stunning 16X24 heirloom-quality enlargement (you can, of course, order as many photos as you like…or should we say, love).

TO ENTER: 1) *Like* us Facebook 2) Email us your name, fiancé’s name, wedding date and reception venue, NO LATER THAN MIDNIGHT, THURSDAY, OCT. 25. Please enter ONLY ONCE (duplicate entries will be deleted).

Winners will be notified the week of Oct. 29, and subsequently announced on Facebook.
