Free Wedding Photography Contest!

Being that February is the Month of Love - I thought this would be a good month to hold this contest.

Sometimes people ask me why I became a wedding photographer. It's so interesting--being a part of someone's life on such an important day, being backstage for all the little things that happen, getting to know people, families, and the reasons why people get married in the first place.

This is the reason I am going to be shooting a wedding for free this year! That's right--the travel (if applicable), shooting and online posting for the couple are on my own dime.

What exactly does the winner get?

~ Up to 6 Hours of Ceremony & Wedding Day Coverage

~ A DVD with all the High Resolution Images from your Wedding

~ & Online Photo Viewing

Here are the rules:

1. Couples must be getting married in South Carolina sometime between March & December 2010 and have a set date and location. The wedding date must be available so check with me if you aren't sure.

2. If you are a bride or groom who has already booked me for their 2010 wedding - guess what – you can enter too! The BALANCE of your wedding contract will be “PAID IN FULL” if you win. There will be no refunds on retainers or any monies already paid towards your wedding contract.

3. The bride or groom must be a Facebook fan. You get bonus points if you have friends or family become fans on my Facebook site too. They need to leave comments on why you deserve to win.

4. You must send me your story about why you deserve for me to shoot your wedding for free. Include a recent photo, the wedding date and location! Parents, friends and family may also nominate a couple.

5. The couple must be willing to appear on my blog and have their story on my blog.

Entries are due by February 21st. The final three couples and stories will be posted on my Blog February 22, 2010 at which time I will take viewer recommendations on who should win. But I will make the final call. The winner will be announced on February 27th on my Blog & Facebook fanpage.

To enter simply drop me an email entitled ‘We want Chi to rock our wedding!’ to and let me know, in no more than 200 words, your story.

There are no strings attached - you won't be forced to buy anything else if you don't want to. This is solely an opportunity for me to give a deserving couple something that I hope they will treasure. Feel free to send this entry to your deserving friends. I hope to find one really special couple to do this for.
