We challenged our users to capture love in a portrait for our last Weekend Art Project, and after a week of deliberation, as of today our users have voted and decided on 10 stunning winning photos.

These winning shots were selected from an amazing pool of 3,797 images, each one depicting love, captured beautifully and uniquely. Now, prepare to have your heart strings plucked by last weekend’s finest portraits of love.

Finishing in first place with a hefty 230 votes, christina’s (@itsmec) shot of a seasoned dog lover and his canine pal won the day. This snuggly shot had everyone feeling all fuzzy inside.
