**Congratulations to Hannah Powers and Kelly Connor for winning the giveaway! And a HUGE thank you to everyone who participated!**
What's that? I'm giving away a wedding photography package for free?! You're darn right I am. Here's a little back story behind this wild idea:
Last week, I sent off our payment for 50% of our wedding and holy smokes did that make my chest tighten up seeing such a large number leave my bank account. Will and I have the amazing support of our family to make our dream wedding day possible and we will be FOREVER grateful for what they have so generously offered us. BUT, I know that's not always the case for every soon-to-be-married couple.
Sometimes pennies have to be pinched, strict budgets need to be followed, and certain aspects of a wedding day are cut due to cost. EVERY wedding day is a beautiful day and a beautiful start to the marriage that follows - no matter the size or extravagance, but I think we all have a dream of how that day goes in the back of our minds. I want to make that dream a little easier to achieve.
As I was making our payment, I could not stop thinking about how expensive the wedding industry is. Funny thing is, I'M a part of of the problem too. Yes, photography helps put food on the table and pays my rent, but the amount someone pays for their wedding photography from me could have also gone to their groceries and rent. So for that reason, I'm offering my 'Beloved' wedding package to one lucky Instagrammer FOR FREE in hopes that it helps make achieving their dream wedding day a little easier.
Here's how to enter:
