We have a winner!

We have a winner in my September Wedding Giveaway! And the lucky couple is (drumroll please)....Karrie Kluever and Kyle Ghostley! They win coverage of their wedding on September 26, including my Urban Chic fashion walkabout and all of the high-rez files, for a total value of $2500. What a great feeling it is to give something like this away to a very worthy couple. Plus, I got a bunch of hugs when I told them. :)

In addition to just being a nice guy, I do have another purpose for giving away the wedding photography: I will have a film crew there to tape how I cover a wedding, including how I prep, what gear I take, how I use directional light with on-camera and off-camera flash, how I interact with and direct the couple, and other tips and secrets I utilize on a wedding day. My goal is to make it as good as if not better than if the viewer had actually tagged along on that day. The footage will be edited to include voiceovers and instruction tips, with the end product being a very comprehensive "how to shoot a wedding, Michael-style" DVD. My target release for the DVD will be first quarter 2010. When we get close to the release time I will post a special pre-release order offer for anyone who wants to be one of the first on the block to get one. :) Stay tuned for future posts and info.
