  1. I'm feeling real good today...so why not do a give-away!? 
    You get 1 bridal session (40 minutes), two enlargements and a disc of edited images. Online proofing for 9 months will be there for your viewing. Oh and your groom can come too! (Value of $200)

    IF you are already married, but are dying for this, then let's do a couple shoot instead! We won't make them look like engagements, but married ones!

    How to win? 4 ways to get 4 chances to win.
    1. 1 entry for a comment/email.
    2. Another entry if you give a link (through that same comment or email) to YOUR blog about my photography or giveaway.
    3. Another entry if you refer someone else about it, and they too comment/email (don't forget to tell them to tell me who you are). 
    4. ANOTHER entry-(wow lots of chances!) if you are a follower. (let me know when you add as a new follower)

    Is that how give-aways usual go? Okay good. Let's do it! I'll give this a week... So it ends on March 18. Good luck!OH- this can be used here in Utah, (Utah or Salt Lake County), OR Orange County. If it's an Orange County one, we'll need to arrange a date I will be down there and hopefully it's a time that's perfect for you.

    closed. results in the morning! stay tuned!

      Pick me! I'm already married but on our wedding day (nearly a year ago) we ran out of time to do portraits at a second location. It'd be fun to get our gear back on to do a couple shoot. I live in San Diego, but coming up to the OC isn't a hassle. (I'm also following you now. So enter me twice?)

    21. Brandon said...

      Hey, I'm officially a new follower. The above comment (Kitty) is from Claire, my bride to be. I dunno if you remember me. I opened a show for your husband's band last September at Velour. (You took a couple pictures of me singing with Katie Brandeburg.) And I played before Drew at the Northplatte Christmas party. Anyway. Claire and I both really dig your work. Claire actually kind of stalks your blog... And she still needs someone to do her bridals... Needless to say, we really wouldn't mind winning this little giveaway, eh?... Anywho. Love your work! Tell Drew I said hi.

      I had to come and see what all the hooplah was about - Claire just can't keep talking about you (well, she really talks more about Brandon but that is the way it should be, right?)!!! And I must say, there is lots to be impressed over. You have great talent. I'd love to see Claire be a recipient of your generous offer and enjoy your work for years to come!

    45. Stacylyn said...
