We went to a wedding fair yesterday. I entered all the competitions that were on offer. Not thinking we would win….
We won a photography package!
I’m so happy…I’ve had such a rubbish time healthwise lately & I’ve been so down, but this is such a blessing.
Enter wedding comps ladies…sometimes you really do win!

@Soon2BD-CBee: Wow, congratdulations 🙂
Just make sure that you actually love the photographers style because you don’t want to skimp on amazing photos just because it is free

A free wedding package or engagement package? I don’t see how a photographer could give away a free wedding. How would they know they were available your date? If it is indeed a free wedding pacakge I’d proceed with extreme caution. I don’t want to be a downer but I can think of about five different ways that i could turn a “free weddding” package in to a wedding i could charge an additional $2000.00 at least. I wouldn’t do it, but I can figure out the angles. Hope it really is good and a good photographer but…ya know. In 13 yeras of professional photography I’ve never heard of a good, professional photographer giving away a full wedding package unless it was for charity!

I’ve seen her work. Her work is beautiful. That’s why we entered.
It’s not free it’s money off, but with our budget it means we can afford amazing photos from a professional.
I’m not naive, just excited.
To be honest I’m gutted by the lack of positivity.

I think the reaction you’re getting is because you put that you won a photography package. It made it sound like a free wedding and that would have been a red flag. I think ” we won a discount” or credit would have gotten you congrats. So, congrats! People were just looking out for your best interest. There are lots of scammers at wedding shows these days.

I think that’s awesome! I won a photobooth rental at one and I was so excited! I had already paid for one with someone else, so I didn’t use it, but I was still excited. They have the contests so that they can get names and information from lots of people. That’s usually the catch. They send out marketing materials to their email/home. There has to be a winner for it to work though. Congrats and can’t wait to see how awesome they look!!!!!

Oooh, congrats! We’re currently surrounded by quotes from photographers wondering how to fit them in the budget…
Was it by any chance the Assassynation prize at the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza? I’m out of the country and was gutted I couldn’t go! If so, I’m totally jealous, she does awesome shoots.
