After wedding season is over, it's time to think about engagements and your own plans. Between Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day is a boom time for engagements, as friends and family are gathered around and nostalgia runs through the season like lights around the tree (that will not be taken down until late January, after the Christmas bills have gone as well).
So the winter is also a time for planning weddings, an activity full of its own headaches and hassles. In a perfect world you wouldn't have to worry about your photography budget and I'ld like to help you live in that world. Here at Ryan Richardson Photography I'd like to make that planning as simple as possible by giving away a deluxe wedding package to one lucky couple getting married from July 2010 through June 2011 - a $4,500 value. This great package includes:
- A 2 hour engagement session ahead of the wedding, to help announce your love to the world.
- 2 hours for a bridal portrait session or rehearsal coverage.
- 2 photographers on the day of your event.
- 8 hours of coverage on your special day.
- 100 image online gallery
- 1 heirloom wedding album, to share the story of your wedding.
- 2 small keepsake parent albums
- A CD of high-resolution and web-resolution files
- Artistic enhancement on all delivered files
- A spiral-bound proof book
- $250 Print Credit
Two runners up will receive free engagement sessions and a $100 print credit. All entrants will be eligible to receive a $50 print credit with purchase of an event package.
To enter couples may simply fill out the bookings and inquiries form with the details of their wedding with the phrase "wedding photography contest" in the comments field. The top three couples will be selected from entrants at random to receive a free engagement session, with the cutest couple (as determined by the number of unique comments on their Facebook engagement session album by 9:00 AM EST May 1, 2010) receiving the top prize.
Contestants must enter by 5:00 PM EST February 28, 2010. Finalists will be selected at random the same day and be notified by e-mail the following business day.
Some restrictions do apply, the contest is only open to residents of New England (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont) and contestants must be able to schedule their engagement session by April 15 (in New England) to be eligible for the grand prize. This contest does not apply to destination weddings or weddings held outside of the New England region. It is also not open to friends and relatives of Ryan Richardson. $50 print credits are only available with purchase of a wedding photography package.
Ryan Richardson is not responsible for any taxes or liabilities that result from winning this contest and entrants agree to have their basic information and likeness shared for promotional and commercial purposes. Additional rules may apply and are subject to change. The contest will be cancelled if there are fewer than 15 entrants by the deadline of February 28, all entrants will still be eligible for $50 print credit. Void where prohibited.
