Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
Irene Jones, the owner of IJ Photo in Seattle, often gets to hear some remarkable stories of how engaged couples first met, which inspired the idea of the contest. The contest is open to couples that are engaged to be married in 2014 -2015; the engagement story that is deemed the best will win a photo session with Irene Jones. The engagement photography sessions are highly sought after and would normally cost $300.
To enter the contest, couples are invited to send their stories to email irene(at)ijphoto(dot)net. Each entry must include the full names of the couple, their engagement story in 250 words or less, and a photograph of the happy couple. The picture doesn’t have to be a professional one – a selfie is acceptable.
Commenting on the launch of the contest, Irene Jones said: "I love telling love stories, more than anything else. It’s always an honor to learn more about a couple. Countless clients have shared with me creative proposal stories, or tales of how awkward their first date was. I couldn’t help but think, wouldn’t it be fun to share these stories with everyone?"
In the coming weeks, the stories will be shared on the official blog; http://www.ijphoto.net/seattle-photographer-blog entrants will be invited to share links on social media and with friends and family. People can vote on the story by clicking on the green “thumbs up” button that is on the top of the page.
The couple with the most votes will be declared the winner; the contest will close on May 9th. Details of the winners will be posted on the blog; the engagement picture will be posted at a later date.
