Love Captured 2016: The top 10 finalists and winning photo


Find out how love has been captured across the UK this year as the results of eHarmony’s annual Love Captured photography competition are revealed

Earlier this year we launched our national photography competition Love Captured for the third time. We asked for photos that showed what love means to people from across the UK, with categories that included couples, family, friends, pets and travel and landscapes.

We can now reveal the top 10 finalists, including the competition’s overall winner Michael Berwick with his stunning photography ‘Together’ capturing the love between his parents on their 30th anniversary. Entries were judged for their creativity, quality and charm by a panel of experts in the fields of art and romance; psychologist Dr Linda Papadopoulos, eHarmony’s Creative Services Group, Instagrammer The Way We Met, Dad Blog UK and Robert Dingle of the Art Fund.

Here are the 10 images that beat over 1000 entries to make it to the final:
