“I hated my wedding photos!”
Five words that make me cringe. As a wedding photographer, nothing makes me more sad than hearing stories of couples who had less than stellar experiences with their wedding photography. Other than the marriage itself, nothing lasts from your special day except the stories. How can you tell those stories without the images?
If you are one of those couples who had photography that fell short, this contest is calling your name. We are offering one couple the chance for a “do-over.” No, we can’t re-create the memories. If your photographer was taking a smoke break and missed the bouquet toss, if you hired Uncle Bob but he got too drunk and forgot to take reception photos, or there’s no images of you with your Great Aunt Erma and she lives 1000 miles away, we can’t make that happen again. What we can do is help create photo worthy moments and capture them beautifully so you can have something to hang on your walls; something to show your future grandchildren.
How to enter:
Send in one or a few images along with a short story of why you deserve a complimentary wedding photography do-over session. If your photography gripe is that you never received the images (MIA Photographer?!) you are eligible also. You do not need to tell us who your photographer was as we are not looking to name names or call anyone out. Be sure to include specific things that were not captured or badly captured so we know what you most want recreated (exchange of vows, cake cutting, unique details, first dance, etc).
The contest will be judged by our contributing vendors based on your story, need and who we feel we can best help.
Winners will receive a complimentary wedding do-over photo session along with contributions from local wedding vendors that help make your session as special and wedding-day-like as possible. Actual contributions will vary. Winners will also receive one 16×20 canvas print of their choice from their session, as well as use of any digital images that are published. Any other digital images, prints, albums etc will be available for purchase. No purchase is required.
1. You must provide your own attire for the photography session. Preferably the actual dresses/tuxes or whatever you wore on your wedding day, but if that’s not possible you will be responsible for renting or borrowing something to wear.
2. Bring a copy of your wedding vows.
3. Your wedding must have taken place in the last year.
4. Open to couples in or near Colorado, or couples willing to travel to Colorado (travel expenses not covered). Actual session location may vary, but likely take place in the Denver/Front Range or Mountain region of Colorado.
5. You must be willing to have your name (first names only), story and resulting images released for publication and use by contributing vendors. You will be required to sign a release.
6. Submissions will be accepted until Jan.1st, 2014. Session must be redeemed by June 1st. Submit using the form below, or by email taketwowedding[at]gmail[dot]com
