fall 2013 cutest couple contest.

heeeere we go! 
i'm so excited to announce october's official relaunch contest: $700 worth of wedding portraits to one lucky + adorable couple out there!

so here's how the contest works: you send in a photo of you and your love, you tell us a bit about your love, you show the world how much you're in love, and you win free wedding photos! easy enough, right? the best part?! you don't have to be located in utah or colorado or even the united states, for that matter, to enter the contest! 

the contest: 

let me break it down a bit more clearly for you. the contest opens for entries on september 21, 2013, and entries close on october 1st. there will be two rounds to the contest, with the official winner announced on october 22nd.

stage one of the contest works like this!: 
the photos and a short description of the couple will be placed on facebook. couples will receive one point for every "like" that their photo receives. for a "like" to count, the individual liking the photo must also "like" anna gleave photography on facebook. couples can receive additional points during this round for receiving comments in their favor on the official blog post or facebook image (only one comment per individual counts), getting others to "share" images from anna gleave photography on facebook, pinterest, and twitter. more detailed instructions in regards to this will be given to the couple upon entry.

stage two of the contest begins october 15th: 
the top three couples will be tallied up on october 13th, and they will be interviewed more extensively for a feature on anna gleave photography's blog. they can also send in an additional photo or get creative with video, etc. to show their love. as in stage one of the contest, couples will receive points for their "likes" and comments. other social media shares will also be added to their score.

and by october 22nd, the polls will be in, and we'll have ourselves a winner and a runner up! both couples will receive prizes, and all couples who enter will receive 15% off their wedding packages with anna gleave photography.

the prize: 
first place: $700 in wedding portrait credit that can be applied to a wedding day or used for a full (1+ hour) engagement and full (1+ hour groomal session). please note that all sessions come with edited digital images.
second place: a free one-hour engagement session with 25 edited digital images and 20% off a wedding package. 
and because i think you're all so cute!: all couples who enter will receive 15% off a wedding package booked with anna gleave photography. 

the criteria: 
1. couples must be in love (but unwed).
2. couples must love images full of heart and soul and want some of these images to call their own!
3. couples do not have to be engaged! but they need to use the credit by mid may, so having a wedding in the works is probably preferable ;)
4. if the couples live outside of colorado or utah, they must pay travel arrangements for anna gleave (who just so happens to LOVE to travel and get rockin travel deals, so no worries there! let's shoot in hawaii! or kansas, even.) 
5. anna gleave photography must be available on couples' preferred session//wedding dates, and dates may not conflict with her already booked dates.
6. portrait credit//discounts must be used by the applying couple and are non-transferrable.
7. all credit and discounts associated with this contest must be used by may 15, 2014. 
8. submitted images may not be watermarked or used to represent any other photographer.

to enter: 
e-mail me with the following!

1. names of the couple (first and last, middle if you like!)
2. wedding date//preferred portrait dates (if you'd like to go that route) of couple AND location
3. love story snippet (please keep it under 100 words for this portion)
4. a photograph of the couple
