Free Wedding Photography!

As many of you may already know, I am currently building my own wedding & lifestyle photography business. Starting one’s own business is definitely a labor of love… many, many ups and downs. My business has been a lifetime in the making and I am proud to announce that the official launch of Chantal Stone Photography will be in 2008 (or sooner!). (I’ll announce when my pro website is complete!)

(UPDATE: My new website can be found at Check it out!!)

I never intended to become a wedding photographer, but now I can’t imagine doing anything else. It is such an incredible honor to be chosen to document one of the most important and special days in a family’s life. Weddings are emotional, beautiful, intimate, and joyous…and after the food is eaten, the music has stopped and dresses and gowns put away, what’s left are the memories of the spectacular day, and of course the photographs.

It’s such an important job to photograph a wedding, one that I feel I was born to do. It is truly a blessing!

I have been very busy these last few months doing all sorts of things to build my portfolio, build my brand, and simply get my name out there. And now I can use your help!

I want to photograph a complete wedding for FREE sometime during 2008. No strings attached, I will do the engagement photo session, full wedding coverage and reception absolutely FREE (a $2000+ value). I am also willing to travel anywhere…as far as travel expenses, I’m sure somehow we can get it taken care of!

Here are the rules:

  1. Any couple getting married sometime in 2008 is eligible. The date and location need to already be set.
  2. Send me your story (or the story of your nomination) about why you should have your wedding photographed for free along with a recent photo of you and your fiancé.
  3. The final three couples and stories will be posted here December 16th for people to vote.
  4. The winner will be announced on December 31st .
  5. Email your story and photo, along with the date and location of your wedding to: with “FREE WEDDING NOMINATION” in the subject line.

So please tell your friends, tell your family, and announce it at work….tell everyone you know and help get the word out for this amazing offer. I’m so excited to be able to do what I love purely for the joy of it.

Together, we can make a deserving couple’s dream come true!

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your blog when you
    could be giving us something enlightening to read?
