Last Chance: Vote for your Favorite Iowa City Photographer Through the Weekend

We just finished the battle of the boutiques. Now to see who is everyone's favorite professional photographer.

(Editor's note: The Readers' Choice challenge is being extended through the weekend with a winner announced early next week.)

Need a photo for an anniversary or a birth? Want to capture your daughter in her prom dress before the big night? Need a photographer for an upcoming wedding?

Well you're in luck, as Iowa City just happens to be full of talented photographers. We wanted to draw some attention to Iowa City's photography options, and our online business directory, by involving them in a head to head poll. To help your favorite photographer win, vote below or leave a testimonial in comments naming the photographer you're writing about, both options will count toward who wins. Please vote just once each day.

If you have a favorite that isn't on the list, let me know in comments.

The winner will receive a certificate from Patch and publicity on the site as the best photographer in a city full of great choices. Any testimonials left during the contest in the comments of this article or as reviews on the photographers are likely to make it in to that final article, even if the business does not win.

Julie Staub's career started in the heart of New York City. Together she and I held arts hows in lower Manhattan for several years raising money for charities such as the Gilda Radner foundation and other local organizations in TriBeCa. Julie's eye captures the ordinary and makes it EXTRAORDINARY! Julie is passionate about art! She has an admiration for public art or street art that is documented and showcase through her lens. Hearts follow her wherever she goes and her images of these found hearts are inspiring!

Dewey street! Dawn is sweet and funny. She is amazing to work with. Imet Dawn through the Gspot Hair show in 2010 and she photographed my freinds' wedding in 2011. Dewey Street's work is stunning and original!

"This is not a scientific poll." -no kidding! It's more like who can get more of their hipster friends (instead of customers) to vote for them.

Stephen Schmidt April 26, 2012 at 03:42 PM
Do Hipster votes count less in scientific polls?

Dewey street..... i have known dawn since ours days working together in undergrad. Several years later when i was looking for a photographer for my wedding i was very pleased to come across her work. It is beautiful and her range in what she can do with a camera is better than most established photographers that i have seen.
Dawn April 27, 2012 at 07:42 PM
Wow, thank you Jenni! Your wedding was so lovely :)
Yetta Chertack April 27, 2012 at 08:33 PM
