Yes you read that correctly! I am giving away ONE FREE WEDDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICE to ONE COUPLE in 2012.
As a professional photographer, I have been blessed by being able to do something I love on a daily basis. I love using the gifts I have been given to capture priceless images on a couples wedding day. A precious day when two people will commit to love and cherish one another for a lifetime. A day that will go by fast and some of the only memories left will be in photographs for generations to come.
Back in 2009 I decided to give away free wedding photography to one fantastic couple that not only won over my heart with their story, but the hearts of my readers.
It was such an amazing experience to give GABE AND JEFF a lifetime gift at no charge to them.
You can read about those finalists here: FINALISTS
I loved having the opportunity to be able to give my time and my talents to a couple that may not have been able to get a photographer that they loved.
In the spirit of Christmas and the season of giving, I am going to step out of my own little world again and hopefully touch the lives of a sweet couple again.
