Marj Merges Beautiful. Honest. You. {and me}

Portland Wedding Photography Giveaway!!!

I really and I mean REALLY, want to photograph a wedding in Portland (or you know, nearish Portland) in 2012 or 2013.  So much so that I’m giving one away.

I’ll keep this super simple.  First there will be a call for entries.  Then I’ll choose finalists.  And then you (including you, mom) will vote.  And then I’ll come out to Portland to photograph an engagement session for the winners.  And in a little bit, I’ll come back out to photograph an awesome wedding.

Simple, easy, and awesome, right?  So spread the word and best of luck to all who enter!!

The Prizes

Grand Prize: unlimited day of wedding* coverage with 2 photographers, engagement session, cd of images, and 20 page custom album

Runner Up: engagement Session + cd of images

And for all finalists: 15% off weddings booked with me (by the way, I never charge travel fees to Portland)

*I believe your marriage should be recognized but sadly the government doesn’t agree with me.  That said, this wedding need not be for a legally recognized marriage.  To see a wonderful piece about why you should consider having a wedding anyway see this.

How to enter

Send me an email marj {dot} merges {at} gmail {dot} com and include the following.

1) a photo of the couple and why they should win

2) names and email addresses

3) date and location of wedding

Entries must be received by 11:59pm PST on Sunday, March 25th.  Finalists will be announced on the blog on Tuesday, March 27th and voting will be open through 11:59pm on Sunday, April 1st.  Winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 3rd.


1. Wedding must take place in 2012 or 2013.  If I am unable to photograph your wedding due to another booking and the wedding date cannot be changed, prize will go to next qualifying couple.

2. Wedding must take place within three hours drive of Portland, OR.

3. Couples are ineligible if they have already booked another photographer.  I just don’t want that type of bad karma.

4. Couples may nominate themselves or be nominated by friends, family, or cats.

Why am I doing this?

My mom and sister live in Portland and there would be absolutely no complaints about more frequent trips.

Thanks so much and I’m super stoked!  Let’s get this contest started.
