Giveaway: Free Wedding Shoot in Cape Town


I am so excited to be able to do a giveaway.  I didn’t think I would be, because normally I think that these are a lame way to try and get readers (and maybe also because I am just bummed that most of the blogs that I follow are American and therefore I am already out of the running), but this is too awesome not to do and share with friends.

I don’t know about you, but I am the resident photographer in our family, and I’m not complaining.  I love it, but let’s be honest I’m not very good at it and besides that, being behind the camera all the time means that I never feature in any of the photos!  A couple of months ago we were very blessed to have a family photo shoot done by the wonderful Gayle Du Preez.  If you didn’t see that post, check out the pictures here – it’s worth it.  Here are some of my favourites:

Recently Gayle contacted me about moving to Cape Town and who can blame her, it definitely is the best place to live.  She will be moving her already successful German company down to Cape Town where she will be photographing weddings, couples shoots (engagement or just for fun), family shoots or even newborn baby shoots!

All we have left to remember our wedding, besides our wedding rings, are our amazing photos.  I look at them all the time and reminisce about our special day.  I’m sure that this will be important to you too when you are planning your wedding, so if you are planning on having a wedding between 20 September 2012 or 30 April 2013 or know of someone who is, here’s how to win a 6 hour long wedding shoot with an amazing photographer:

Leave a comment on this page with the answer to the question”Why should you and your future spouse be the ones to win this competition?“.  It’s that easy!  We will be doing the draw on 13 August in celebration of Gayle’s 50th birthday.

  1. Shane and i (thats my hubby to be:) )REALLY would love to win this giveaway as my fiance and I are planning our wedding with a budget of R20 000 and as you know that is VERY little we have been trying to find a good photographer for a while now but everything is out of our price range. We really want to find a great photographer as this will be the only memories we have left of our special day. Paying for your own wedding with no outside help is no easy task, ive had many sleepless nights as well as many teary nights wondering and praying about how we are going to do this but we are trusting and believing for a great wedding filled with love laughs and a few tears. Please pick us and help us make our special day blessed.
