Congratulations to Rachel French, winner of the #MostColorfulCostume Photo Giveaway!

Rachel is a Lifestyle photographer and author of the blog, Appreciating the Everyday. The image of her son in his Halloween costume is aptly titled "Mr. Robot-o".

Our judges couldn't resist the happy "uh-oh" expression on this little guy's face hinting at a personality as colorful as his costume.

There is a good mix of modern and classic Disney Characters all brought to life with their own dedicated floats.

Shiggy Ichinomiya's "Water Veil": MeFOTO Instagram Weekly Winner

  by MeFOTO Blog       Category Giveaway, Fun, Wedding Photography       Tags MeFOTO Giveaway, sidekick360, instagram giveaway, Trash the Dress, Drown the dress, fearless bride

The "Trash the Dress" trend in Wedding Photography has officially arrived here at MeFOTO. Started about 10 years ago in Las Vegas, the hot trend features photographs of brides ruining their dresses with water, paint, mud and even fire in the most unusual environments for such finery.

The ritual is meant to symbolize the bride's devotion to her new husband as the dress can never be worn again. For many, the images from these irreverent shoots offer not only an unique memory, but also a very personal form of artistic expression. 

Shiggy Ichinomiya, last week's SideKick360 winner, shares his experience in creating this image:

"My friend Lara wanted to do a "Trash the Dress" or "Drown the Gown" Wedding Dress shoot. We decided to do the photo shoot by the beach at sunset. I had the couple lay down on the dry sand. And without telling them that a wave was approaching, I started to shoot three frames. Lara and David did not flinch as they were pounded by the wave. If you look closely, you can see Lara's pink/red toenails and what's amazing is that the water that sprayed over Lara's head created what looks like a "water veil."' - Shiggy

R.J. Owens' "Hail the King": MeFOTO Instagram Weekly Winner

  by MeFOTO Blog       Category Giveaway, Family Photography, Travel Photography       Tags MeFOTO Giveaway, instagram giveaway, sidekick360, Festival of the Lion King, Walt Disney World

Disney World's Festival of the Lion King is a rousing musical revue featuring songs from the animated film The Lion King. Broadway quality singing and dance numbers are combined with a circus style show that includes acrobatic monkeys, a fire knife wielding hyena, performers dressed as birds, and an ensemble cast of dancers, stilt walkers and puppeteers. Throw in audience participation and you have something for everyone in this not-to-be-missed Disney experience.

Closed for almost a year, R.J. Owens, our SideKick360 winner for 9/19/14, was able to snap his winning image at the newly reopened show, now in the new Harabe Theater in Animal Kingdom's "Africa".

"While on a family trip to Disney World, I was able to capture some great photos of the Festival of the Lion King performers. This one was by far my favorite, I love the light behind his head." - R.J.
