who wants to win a lens rental??

this has to be one of my most favorite giveaways!!
i mean, really, who doesn't LOVE to use an amazing lens??


borrowlenses.com is one of the nations leading lens rental companies and they are simply awesome!! if you follow along on our facebook page, you have heard me rave about them time and time again. i have used them so many times for so many reasons and they are the best!

their customer service is unmatched! they will bend over backwards just to make you happy!
the process of renting a lens couldn't be easier. all you need to do is head to their site, pick out what you want and within days (or whenever you want it) it is showing up at your front door.

lens rental is perfect for adding a little something extra to a wedding (fisheye, wide angle, 70-200...), or to test out a lens before you buy it, or to use on vacation when you would need a lens that you don't have...or simply just for fun!! it's not limited to just lenses either. they have camera bodies, flashes and lots of other goodies!

and now the super fun part.....
borrowlenses.com is giving one very lucky reader a $200 gift certificate to get the lens of their choice!!! amazing, right?!
