In New England, winter is the season for wedding planning, 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'd 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 fantastic wedding package to one lucky couple getting married sometime between July 2011 and June 2012 - a $4,500 value. This great package includes:
- An engagement session ahead of the wedding, to help announce your love to the world.
- 2 photographers on the day of your event.
- 8 hours of coverage on your special day.
- An online image 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
Two runners up will receive free engagement sessions and a $100 print credit. All entrants who schedule a consultation will receive a $150 credit toward the wedding package of their dreams from Ryan Richardson Photography (this excludes the basic 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 "likes" on their Facebook engagement session album by 9:00 AM EST May 1, 2011) receiving the top prize.
Contestants must enter by 5:00 PM EST February 28, 2011. Finalists will be selected at random the same day and be notified by e-mail the following business day.
Last year this contest generated a lot of interest and some great photo sessions. We'll be shooting the winning wedding, Holly & Luke, this June.
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 or independent contractors employed by Ryan Richardson Photography.
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 $150 package credit. Void where prohibited.
