*This is a paid post from an APW Sponsor*
So. I normally work really hard to bring you only two sponsor related posts a week, but this week I sort of fell off the wagon. It was partially the fact that I put sponsored posts on hold for about a month (I needed sanity preparing for a big trip), partially lovely sponsors wanting to end the summer right, and partially too-good-to-pass-up opportunities like this one. Seriously. How could I pass this up? I found out about this yesterday, and was like, “But my editorial calendar… Wait. Screw it.” So forgive me, this once. And read this, married or not, it will make your day.
New sponsor FedorovFoto in New York City (who I haven’t even done a full post on yet, more on that soon) emailed me last night with this amazing amazing photography giveaway. I’m hoping this will find its mark with a couple looking to elope or have a small wedding in New York who hasn’t quite set a date yet, or one who magically has set a date… but can’t afford a photographer. Seriously ALL of us? FINGERS CROSSED. And now the email:
My wife and I got married on September 20th, 2008. Because we were on a very tight budget, we decided not to hire a professional photographer and just allow our friends to use my photography equipment and document the wedding that way. Thanks to tremendous support from numerous friends we had one incredible wedding !!! (we had a free venue in a huge gorgeous home, a wedding dress donated by a friend, catering provided by my wife’s best friend’s partner who spent 36+ hours cooking for us). Our only regret is not hiring a wedding photographer, because despite the wonderful memories, it would have been so cool to have a better visual memory.
SO – to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary, we would like TWO couples (whose budget did not allow them to hire a photographer) to have a chance to see their wedding years from now in a way that we can’t. Since our anniversary is on a Monday this year and most people don’t get married on Mondays, we want to give away FREE full day coverage and a DVD of images to one couple getting married on Saturday, September 18th and one couple getting married on Sunday, September 19th (one for each year of our marriage!). Both my wife and I would shoot the weddings as a celebration of our anniversary. We are happy to travel anywhere within a 100 miles of where we live (Forest Hills, NY). Those couples can also have a free engagement shoot with me, provided that they are willing to meet me somewhere in NYC. I realize that the anniversary giveaway is very last minute, but it just hit us that this is something we would like to do to celebrate our 2 years of marriage
Makes you a little teary, right? So… lets make some Team Practical magic happen… NOW! Leave a comment or email me if Alex is describing you, and we’ll put it all together. Magic… go!
