I am so excited to finally announce the winning couple for my Free Wedding Photography Contest!! After 12,656 votes, the final couple, The Cupcakes, managed to rake in 9,883 votes for themselves! Watching the results was unbelievable. I never imagined that my little contest would receive such a huge response. And I am super excited to photograph the Wedding of such an AMAZING couple on June 21, 2008!!!

Melissa & Steven!!


Aren’t they adorable?!?

They will receive the following Wedding Package:

  • Engagement photo shoot
  • one free digital negative for Wedding/newspaper announcement
  • up to 6 hours of Wedding day coverage
  • online proofing galleries with Pictage ( for both the Engagement session and Wedding photos
  • $100 discount on a flush-mount, coffee table style Wedding Book!

I gotta say…when I read the stories of all of the couples, my heart opened to each and every one of them. They all deserve to have the Wedding of their dreams, and it’s such a huge honor for me to be a part of that. But when I read Melissa and Steven’s story, they immediately won a special place in my heart after hearing of Steven’s deployment to Iraq, since my own husband was deployed there just a couple of years ago. I am so thrilled to be a part of one of the most important days in this young couple’s life!

To the two other couples, Samantha & Michael and Nikki & Craig:

Thank you so much for participating. I want to thank all of your friends and families for their votes, comments, and emails. I would still love to be a part of your day, and I will be contacting you soon with a special offer. Happy New Year to you all!!

To Melissa & Steven:

Congratulations!!! I’m so psyched to photograph your Wedding! Thank you so much for letting me into your lives, I can’t wait to get to know you both better.

To the friends and families of all of the couples:

Again, thanks for your votes, emails, an comments! If you want to continue to support these amazing couples, I do offer gift certificates starting at $100. This would certainly be a great start for any young couple. Contact me at chantal@chantalstonephotography for purchasing information.
