A Year in Rewind {Saint Augustine Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer}

One year ago if you had told me I would have my own business, we were going to move not once, but twice, and live in St Augustine, I would have laughed, very hard, at you. But, here I sit in St Augustine writing a post celebrating one year in business! I guess it’s true that you should never say never {However, I really, really don’t want a minivan. Too many memories of my childhood in my parents minivan which I loathed and my dad apparently loved. So I will say never to a minivan even if we will have three kids.}

I wanted to do something fun to celebrate such a big milestone. So I reached out to some of my favorite people to see if they would be interested, and very lucky for us, they were!

Giveaway 1 and 2: Pretty Presets for Lightroom.

They are generously donating two $50 gift certificates! If you’re a photographer and have never heard of pretty presets or worked with them, this is for you! These really help to speed up your work flow and gives you the flexability to tweak the preset if you need to!

Visit  Pretty Presets for Lightroom on Facebook and leave them some love on their page!

Giveaway 3:

A logo design by Alissa Lee Designs. Visit Alissa Lee Designs on Facebook, leave her some love, look around at everything she has created so far! She’s fantastic and truly talented!

Giveaway 4: A Busy Little Craftee Bee

Latisha is also giving away a gift valued at $125!
A custom card set. 10 cards, 10 envelopes. Theme and color will be left up to the recipient. Whether is be Wedding, Baby, Congratulations or Thank You…
She will customize the card set especially for you. Trust me, you will love, love, love her work! Leave her some love on her Blog!

Giveaway 5 : A Busy Little Craftee Bee

I adore these, I might be a little obsessed! 3 of the cards say “a picture is worth a thousand words” and 3 of them say “A memory lasts forever”.  There are six cards in the set (3×6 inches, with envelopes). 2 Sunflower, Teal, and Tulip colors, and each color has each of the sentiments.  The cameras were hand stamped and colored in using Copic Markers.  Each of the envelopes also has a retro camera stamped on the front of them. Aren’t they amazing? People who can make things and make them so pretty I am always amazed by! She is truly a remarkable woman and I’m so happy to call her my friend!

Giveaway 6: BittlesBows is giving away these two beautiful headbands. Perfect for the newborn, child photographer, mommy, grandma, aunt…… Trust me they are fantastic!
