Winner(s) of Free RTP Couples Shoot Announced!

During the first week of the launch of the NEW René Tate Photography brand, we did a series of giveaways.  Our new brand is for couples who have an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an insatiable desire to explore every inch of this beautiful world. They love to lose themselves in a new city, eat food they can’t pronounce, check “Paris” and “sky dive” off their bucket lists, and have the kind of experiences most people only dream about.  So with that said, we gave away some of our favorite travel-themed items… things like a carry-on Longchamp bag, scratch off world maps, Origins beauty products for on-the-go adventurers, and travel journals from Shinola.  The week of giveaways culminated with a free couples shoot to one Undeniably Adventurous at Heart couple.

The number of entries and stories was overwhelming.

We’ve only just finished this week sorting through all the entries.  I definitely had some help in narrowing down entries and deciding on winners.  Contestants were asked to answer a few questions about what a couples adventure shoot would mean to them, why there Undeniably Adventurous at Heart, and finally, shameless feedback request, we wanted to know their favorite part of our new web site. :)

We received some amazing stories and want to thank everyone for taking the time share their hearts with us.  We were so moved that we COULD NOT pick just one winner!!  Instead, we settled on THREE WINNERS!! One from each of our home bases of Colorado & California, and one international couple all the way from SINGAPORE!

First, I’d like to introduce you to our Colorado couple, Jenny & Julio!! 

These two are true Coloradans who live for adventure!  Adventure in the sense of mountains, camping, hiking, snowboarding — anything to do with the great outdoors!  You must take a peek at this video they created of a recent adventure of theirs to Island & Ice Lakes near Ouray, Colorado.  I can’t wait to see my beautiful home state through their eyes and get to know their adventurous hearts! Their favorite part of the new web site is the René Tate Loves section:  “We love that you took the time to showcase the people and things you love, especially considering your photography focuses on other people so often.  It is nice to get a glimpse of who the photographer is at heart.  The entire website is wonderful and fits the overall theme like a glove!”

Second, I’m so thrilled to introduce our couple representing California, Haley & Jason! 

After nearly three years of living on opposite coasts, these two are finally united and living in Colorado.  They are pretty darn adventurous, as proven by Haley’s journalism with NBC news reporting in Malawi treating malnourished children, working at the World Health Organization in New Delhi visiting leper colonies and writing articles about my experiences, traveling to Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon.  I want to honor them for sticking it out throughout all those red-eye flights, late night Skype sessions, and the heartache from being away from each other!  Congratulations, Haley & Jason!

Lastly, I’m in awe to introduce you to Jacqueline & Han Hui from SINGAPORE!

These two are travel lovers who live for food adventures!  They try everything: cod’s sperm, puffer fish sashimi, and even duck’s blood! We think that is pretty darn adventurous, but also the fact that these two want to fly over to America, create some beautiful memories together, and shoot against some beautiful landscapes in western region of the States.  We LOVE their Undeniably Adventurous Hearts and cannot wait to meet them!  Congratulations, Jacq & Han Hui!!!  We are so humbled you want to make the journey to spend time & be photographed by René Tate Photography!  We have some stunning backdrops in mind for you!

Thank you again to everyone who entered!  We’re in awe of your hearts and love for adventure!  As one contestant defined adventure, “whether that’s in the bold & monumental of running through the rain in Osaka, or riding horses into the warm Caribbean waters, or adventure in the small, humble and unassuming sense: the nine kisses before work very single morning, making pizza together but forgetting to open the windows so the fire alarm goes off, and road trips with the radio blaring.”  We agree and think adventure covers a broad spectrum!

Didn’t win but still want to document your Undeniably Adventurous Hearts? Drop us a note to for a special offer!
