wedding photography giveaway 2020

COVID19 is affecting every facet of life as we know it and the wedding community is no exception.  The recent difficulty hitting the wedding community has created an atmosphere of negativity and discouragement.  Many of our couples have had to reschedule the wedding day of their dreams, alter their plans, locations, number of guests, and in the worst cases, cancel their wedding day completely.  My heart is truly hurting for our couples and all who are facing these emotional decisions.  I want to bring some light and happiness to anyone I can by counteracting it with something good.  I am hoping a wedding photography giveaway might do the trick, or at least help a little!  In addition to a wedding photography giveaway, I am also offering $300 off for EVERYONE that is looking for a wedding photographer.  Keep reading for details!

seven years is reason to celebrate!

Keeping on with the positive vibes, we also have a huge cause of our own to celebrate!  This month we are celebrating our 7 year anniversary of being in business!  Emerald Anchor Photography has officially been a legally established small business for 7 years. I cannot believe how quickly the time has passed and I am so thankful to still be pursuing my dream!  

wedding photography giveaway

The last few years we have given away wedding photography packages to celebrate our business anniversary. Each wedding has gone so well that this year I wanted to continue sharing and spreading the love!  I am excited to say that this year, I will be giving away a wedding photography package to one lucky couple and I am also offering $300 off wedding packages to EVERYONE.  This is good for any couple if booked by the end of June!  If you or someone you know and love is engaged, please share this wedding photography giveaway with them.  I am happy to share this wedding photography giveaway  with others and hope that it might be a blessing.  I am also very excited to have this opportunity to give back and celebrate our accomplishment of 7 years as a small business!
