  11. Elizabeth Messina is my favorite photographer! I’m a big time follower of her blog and I’m constantly inspired by her photos. I adore her honesty and ingenuity — as a young female photography lover living in a small town with almost no one to share this passion with, I feel like Elizabeth Messina is a close friend and great inspiration!

  12. I became entranced by Elizabeth’s work the first time I saw it (which was for Twigs & Honey). I stumbled upon her website soon after and thought that this isn’t real, ALL the photos were so breathtaking!! I would so very much LOVE to get my hands on a copy of her wonderful book so I can fall in love all over again!

  13. As the Creative Director for Smitten Magazine, I have had the honor to see Elizabeths stunning work up-close & often, and her photography has graced our cover TWICE! By far, one of my favorite photographers out there (and I see a lot)!

  14. I’m so excited about all this beautiful photography on paper, instead of just a screen! And to look at it with my friend who introduced me to KisstheGroom when she gets back from Kenya in August <3

  15. I really admire her work and would love to win this book and spends hours pouring over the images!

  16. I cannot wait to get my hands on this book! Even if I don’t win this giveaway, I’m definitely ordering it! Such a big fan of Elizabeth Messina!

  17. I am a huge fan of Elizabeth’s work! Her photography is truly amazing! I would love to win her new book. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  18. Elizabeth is THE photographer I’ve latched onto, fanwise, as all of her photos are truly stunning, both in composition, content, and technique. I would love to own a copy of her book to hold and feel her pictures, as well as learn some helpful photography pointers.

  19. Elizabeth’s work just oozes gorgeousness. I would love to “ooh” and “aah” page after page and winning a SIGNED copy would be a dream come true!

  20. Elizabeth is truly a visionary of light, love, and all things that make the heart flutter. Whenever I’m feeling that I’ve forgotten why I love this business, I visit her images and I’am reminded of all that is lovely and right with the world.

  21. I’m a fairly new fan of Elizabeth’s, but when I first saw her photography my mouth literally fell open. I would love to win a signed copy to better my own photography and learn so much from her, she has already been such an inspiration:)xoxo

  22. I’ve just launched my own wedding photography business, and have been following Elizabeth closely. Her work is stunning, truly inspiring. I have a lot to learn, especially given that I’m in London and the skies are mostly grey and dark here. But I don’t want to let that stop me! I would be grateful to learn some tips and tricks to seek out and find truly magical light, in all locations. Fingers crossed!
