The {smashing fabulous} Wedding Photography Giveaway Details

In the process of reinventing my business this year I've made a lot of changes. We've renamed, rebranded, we've remodeled, and expanded. I don't think there's anything, though, that I'm more excited about than the opportunity to expand my ability to GIVE. My reason for giving is Jesus Christ...I am overwhelmed with what I've been given and when I think of ANYTHING on this earth that I could give, it pales in comparison to the ultimate gift that I've received. And I am so unable to repay Him...but i think that's exactly His point. Which brings me to mine. I'm searching and scouring the country for engaged couples who cannot afford a wedding photographer...I want to GIVE them an enormous gift! But I need YOUR help to find them! I'll travel anywhere in the continental U.S. to photograph their wedding completely free of charge! You just need to tell me WHO they are by the end of January and they must be planning a 2010 wedding. Email me at!

Here’s the official rules:

1. The engaged couple must be nominated by someone other than themselves (can be anyone who knows them) and the nominating letter must explain why the couple deserves a free Rawsii Wedding package and include a photo of the couple. The more personality expressed, the better! Stories will be confirmed prior to announcing finalists. Nominations should be emailed ONLY. Send to . Winners will be required to sign the standard Wedding Day Agreement and Photograph and Publicity Consent and Release Form with Rawsii. All stories and images submitted become the property of Rawsii and will not be returned.

2. The couple’s wedding must take place between the dates of 1/1/10 and 12/31/10 in the Continental U.S. (this excludes Alaska and Hawaii). Void where prohibited.

3. All nominations must be received by 11:59pm EST on January 31, 2009. Rawsii reserves the right to select finalists without disclosing reasons or criteria. Finalists will be confirmed no later than March 30, 2009. Three finalists will then be presented on the Rawsii blog for public voting on April 1, 2009. Public vote will be final. In case of a tie, Rawsii reserves the right to cast the final vote.

4. The winner will receive the Smashing Fabulous Wedding Package, valued at $4200, which includes full day coverage, a 30-page (60-side) Storybook Album, and online proofing. In addition, the winner will receive the High Res images on DVD, and a 16x20 Gallery Wrap (an additional value of $1000.) All travel and lodging expenses will be covered by Rawsii. Winners will be required to sign standard Wedding Day agreement with Rawsii, minus any clauses pertaining to an exchange of monies.

5. To be eligible, the couple may not be under any contract or agreement for wedding photography with Impressions Studio or Rawsii or any other wedding photographer of any kind as of the date of entry. Cancellation of an existing contract with Impressions Studio or Rawsii will render a couple ineligible for the contest.

6. Another friendly message from my awesome lawyer, Matt: Rawsii reserves the right to change the contest or contest rules at any time without notice. No purchase necessary to win. Void where prohibited. (thanks Matt!)
