Last summer, I was contacted by The Gateway marketing department about a wedding contest--The Gateway Ultimate Wedding Giveaway. I was asked if I'd like to participate as the wedding photographer for the couple who won the contest. I sure did! Sam and Brandon were the lucky winners. They competed in many wedding-related contests against other hopeful couples. Each of the contests were shown on Fox 13 News, with Big Budah there to comment on all the action. Viewers were asked to vote on The Gateway's Facebook page, for their favorite couple. From me, they won a great wedding photography package, that included the following:
- Up to 8 hours wedding day coverage
- Engagement Session and 8 x 10 print
- Bridal Portrait Session and 8x 10 print
- $1000.00 credit toward a wedding album
I'm having a great time working with Sam and Brandon. They are so appreciative, and just plain fun to be around. Stay tuned for their engagement photos shot in Salt Lake City!
Below, are videos highlighting the competition.
The first video on Fox 13 News, about the giveaway. Check out Brandon, dancing in the background for the camera. He's a crack up. So silly and fun.
One of many competitions held at The Gateway, for the giveaway--the Ice Cream Challenge, which Sam and Brandon won:
