What a year 2016 has been! I can’t believe how many amazing couples I have photographed and have yet to photograph! This year has been such a success that I feel the need to give back in the best way I can think of, with a wedding photography giveaway!

I am giving away a FREE complete wedding day photography package to one lucky couple getting married in 2017! Your wedding can take place ANYWHERE worldwide. Awesome, right?

All the details & how to enter this wedding photography giveaway can be found at the bottom of this post. Before you enter, please read the details, & here is a little about me and what I offer my clients…

When I photograph weddings, the atmosphere is filled with passion, love, joy, and emotions. To be able to capture all of that is an immense privilege! Wedding photography is a beautiful challenge. It's about trust, love, psychology and absolutely flawless photography capabilities. Emotions need to be conveyed through powerful shots. Awareness, sensitivity, and perceptions are essential – but that's not enough. Wedding photography needs to combine all of that with a personal style, absolutely impeccable technique and mastery of photography skills. Every wedding I photograph I am responsible for my client's memories. Upon photography lays the concept of eternity. We are not just taking photos with the push a button. We are preserving memories, capturing eternal emotion, and seizing moments which will never return.



One lucky 2017 couple will win the following complete wedding day photography (a value of over $6000!) package:
• 8 hours of wedding photography coverage with Emerald Stone Photography
• Online viewing & ordering wedding gallery to share with friends & family
• Your professionally edited, full-resolution digital images from your beautiful wedding day
• A gorgeous 10x10 Wedding Album with the first 30 pages
• 1 hour engagement session – dependent on travel & dates tbd after the winner is announced
