It’s that time of year again! It’s time for the photography giveaway and this year it is WAY more than just photography!! I’m so excited that there are other amazing businesses who are contributing their services or discounts on their services this year and you guys are definitely going to want to submit for this!
So how does this all work? Well it’s pretty simple. Anyone, anywhere can win this giveaway. The wedding does not have to take place, nor does the couple have to be from the Fargo-Moorhead area! The couple who wins this can be married anywhere in the world!! There are some stipulations though so be sure to read carefully!!
What you get…
1. Photography from Katie Lewis Photography, Inc. You will receive a one hour engagement session, 10 hours of wedding day coverage, 2nd shooter and a usb of images from both the wedding day and engagement session with printing rights. If your wedding is not located within one hour of Fargo-Moorhead, you will be responsible for travel costs. This is all subject to Katie’s availability and any prints + albums are additional.
2. Cinematography from Zach at Fate + Love Photography. You will receive $500 off any collection that you choose. The winner will be emailed a pricing guide for you to choose the collection you want. If your wedding is not located within one hour of Fargo-Moorhead, you will be responsible for travel costs. This could possibly be combined with Katie Lewis Photography travel fees. This is all subject to Zach’s availability.
3. Stationery from Haley at Fate + Love Stationery. You will receive $300 off the design fee for custom invitations OR 75 free invitations if you choose one from the pre-designed line. This can be used by a winner that lives anywhere.
4. Hair and Makeup from Adae Salon. The bride will receive free hair and makeup on her wedding day as long as four other members of her bridal party (bridesmaids, mother’s of bride and groom, etc) also book hair and makeup. If your wedding is not located within Fargo-Moorhead, you may be responsible for travel costs.
5. Spray Tan and Eyelash Extensions from Trista at Blushed. The bride will receive a free spray tan and eyelash extensions the week of her wedding. This can only be used by brides local to Fargo-Moorhead or who can travel to Trista for the tan and extensions.
6. Cake from Darla at Fantasies in Frosting. You will receive $100 off a wedding cake. There will be a limit on how far outside of Fargo-Moorhead they will deliver a cake. You may be responsible for travel costs and will have to discuss that in more detail with Darla.
7. Flowers from Sadie at Sadie’s Couture Floral & Event Styling. You will receive 20% off a wedding floral order. This is pending availability. You may be responsible for travel costs and will have to discuss that in more detail with Sadie.
