Wedding Photography Giveaway FINALISTS Hosted by Boone NC Photographer Wayfaring Wanderer

One of the reasons I decided to host a wedding + engagement photography giveaway was because I KNOW what it's like to plan a wedding on an extremely tight budget, but it's more than that, too.

When I got married last summer it reaffirmed to me how important wedding photography really is because now I have wedding photos that will help me relive how awesome our wedding day was over and over again. These images are priceless to me!

Our photographer, Kimberlee Edwards Photography, was incredible and helped our experience in front of the camera be as painless as possible. I bet you'd be shocked to know that I get shifty when having my pictures taken, too, so it was eye-opening to be on the other side of things for a change.

Your wedding day is an epic adventure from beginning to end and your wedding photography is a big part of that. You might not realize this but your wedding photographer is with you (practically) ALL DAY LONG, which is why you want to find someone that you click with. I think your wedding photography should be fun and feel natural so you can just be yourself and enjoy your special day.

My goal is not only to capture real moments as they naturally unfold, but it's also to ensure that you're having a great experience that won't distract from what really matters which is celebrating the commitment you're making to one another and the journey that you are about to embark upon together while spending time with those you love!

I had chats with 6 of the contestants who entered the Wayfaring Wanderer Wedding + Engagement Photography giveaway a few days ago, and since then I have been mulling over my decision about which 3 finalists to choose for an opportunity to win the grand prize. I said that I wanted it to be tough but I don't think I realized how hard it would really be!

In an awesome turn of events, one of the couples that entered decided they didn't want to wait for the outcome of the wedding photography contest, so they went ahead and BOOKED me for their wedding day, which disqualified some peeps that were getting married on the same date.

However, I was still left with some super tough decisions to make! There were so many different factors that went into my thought process about which couples to choose but it ultimately boiled down to who I felt would be the most excited to have Wayfaring Wanderer (ME!) capture their wedding day.
