I love photographing weddings and important family events because it’s a chance to share peoples’ love and joy back with them. It’s a beautiful experience — for everyone involved. This is all fine and good on the wedding day, or the period of engagement, but what about after? One, five, ten, years later? If anyone needs a pick-up, an opportunity to re-connect and fall in love again, it’s often those who are already married.
So, for this year’s “Giving is Awesome“, I am donating a photo session for a married couple who you think could use a little photo love-in. You know who I am talking about — that couple who is terribly in love and never has enough cash to get a photography session just for them, or that couple who has been going through a really hard time and could use a little session to connect. Or that couple who… you get the idea.
If a name is coming to mind right now, that’s the one to nominate! Nominate that couple who deserves a year-round reminder of their love, beauty and fabulous relationship. They will have a natural, “engagement-shoot-like” photo session, which will be fun in the experience, bring them closer, and leave them with fabulous photos that will reflect their current relationship for touchstones in their day-to-day lives. It’s not based in a huge life event like a wedding. It’s based on nothing, which is the most important thing of all. Just for them to remember that ‘nothing’ is everything.
I want to know who these people are for you, and give them a chance to experience this photo session with me, which would normally be $700.
By doing so, the nominator (that’s you!) will receive a $150 print credit. So, everybody wins!
Here are the rules:
*You cannot nominate yourself, and the couple you nominate must live in Toronto. You can only nominate once.
*Tell me who you know, what they are experiencing, and why they deserve my services. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.
*You must e-mail me the full story to Catherine[@]documentographer.com
Deadlines for nominations is Christmas Eve. The winner will be announced on Christmas Day.
It takes no time or money on your part — it just feels good! So, send in your entry now, and feel warm and fuzzy about being generous with your thoughtfulness and love. I can’t wait to read your entries!
Ho ho ho.
