Wedding Photography Giveaway 2019

This month we are celebrating our 6 year anniversary of being in business!  Emerald Anchor Photography has officially been a legally established small business for 6 years. I cannot believe how quickly the time has passed and I am so thankful to still be pursuing my dream!  My heart is still in love with photography and I am most passionate about photographing people in love.  So, naturally I wanted to celebrate this accomplishment and give back in a BIG way. 


Last year we gave away a wedding photography package and it went so well that this year I wanted to double the love!  I am excited to say that I will be giving away not only one, but two wedding photography packages to two lucky couples!  If you or someone you know and love is engaged, please share this wedding photography giveaway with them.  I am very excited to have this opportunity to give back and celebrate the accomplishment of 6 years as a small business!
