Win an awesome learning experience! A personal tutorial shoot with us

Hey guys,

OK – so we’ve booked up our two advanced seminar courses next weekend – advanced photography, and advanced photoshop.
As it’s turned out – most of the people booked in are professional photographers themselves – we’re really looking forward to it!

However, we’d love to get a few more people along to our beginner level seminars.

As a bit of an incentive… a giveaway!

First: The prize.

The winner will get to come along with us for a wedding fashion shoot. You’ll get to see us in action, we’ll explain the steps behind what we’re doing, there’ll be plenty of off-camera flash (and the explanation of how it all works), posing, hot models, smoke machines, epic locations, and more. It’ll be like the advanced photog seminars – but just you & us, so you get 1 on 1 learning – can ask as many questions as you like, etc. And of course you can shoot away – play with our lights, etc etc. It’s a great way to learn what goes into making our images look the way they do.

Examples of our wedding fashion work (ie the kind of stuff you can come & play with) are:

Our Karangahake Gorge shoot:

Jo’s Trash the Dress:

Our Bride Parade shoots:

and pretty much anything we shoot that involves a gorgeous couple, in a gorgeous setting, with gorgeous lighting, and repetition of the word “gorgeous” too many times.

How to be the winner:

Refer some of your friends / family / random strangers to book in for our beginners photography / photoshop classes.
If they book into one seminar, you get one entry. If they book into both seminars, you get 2 entries. If you get two friends that book into both seminars, you get 4 entries.
So on & so forth.

Whoever has the most entries by Thursday 23rd September at 5.00pm will be the winner.

If only one person enters, and there’s only one entry, you’ll still win.

IMPORTANT – make sure that when you refer people, you tell them to pass your name along to us as the referral – otherwise we’ll never know who to give the entries to!

So get in touch with people that are budding / new photographers – and get them to come along & register on our course, and drop your name while they’re at it!

Look forward to giving this awesome session experience away to someone :)

Life FM wedding season – engagement photos of the 5 finalists!

Hey guys,

On Saturday – we had an awesome time chilling at Carrington’s with the LifeFM crew & heaps of hopeful couples, for the announcement of the 5 finalists in the ‘Wedding Season” competition.

The venue looked gorgeous all set up, and it was lovely having the chance to chat with many of the couples, and show off some of our albums.

** by the way – if you missed us, and would like us to send through a PDF copy of our ‘wedding guide’ booklet with heaps of tips for planning your wedding day schedule / ideas to keep in mind – send us an email at info@perspectivesphotography.co.nz and we’ll get one out to you.**

You can become Facebook Fans too if you like!

Anyway – eventually, the long awaited announcements came – and 5 lucky couples made it through to the final stages.

Afterwards, we did a quick engagement shoot marathon with each of them – squeezing each couple into a 30 minute slot (where we’d usually spend a few hours!). Condensed time-frame notwithstanding, we got some gorgeous images with each couple – here’s a few of our favs.

All these shots were taken around the Unitech grounds, where Carrington’s is – so you can rest assured that you’ve got plenty of great photo options if you book your wedding there… plus of course places like Western Springs or the city centre really close at hand too!

So… which couple would you most like to appear in our photographs? (putting a twist on LifeFM’s comp!!) – you can vote once per day here.

Enjoy the shots guys – and we’ll keep you posted as to who eventually wins!

Come visit us! Saturday 4th September, Carrington’s @ Unitec, Mt Albert

Hey guys,

Tomorrow, we’ll be at Carrington’s cafe on the Mt Albert Unitec campus, for the finals of the Life FM wedding season promo.

Many of the vendors involved with the promotion will have displays of their lovely wares – and we’ll be there from 10am onwards with our lovely Queensberry albums :)

So if you’ve been wanting to meet us – either to chat about your wedding day, or to see what a Queensberry album looks like, or even just to geek out about photography – this is a great time!

Here’s a map to Carrington’s (who are the venue hosting the free wedding that Life FM are organizing)

Life FM will be doing a bit of live broadcasting from the event, and the finalists will be selected on the day too. I’m pretty sure that finalists need to be there in person to qualify, so there’ll be plenty of hopeful couples there!! The doors open at 10am, and we’ll be free to chat until around 2pm.

Then we’ll be off shooting an engagement session marathon – as each couple that makes the finals will get an engagement session, which we’re shooting on the day :)

Special offer alert….

We have some free session vouchers – they can be used to get either an engagement shoot, a Trash the Dress shoot, or a family portrait shoot. If you come down & chat with us tomorrow, and mention that you saw this offer on our blog… we’ll hook you up with a free voucher.

Plus – you get to check out our amazing album that we’ve just put together for one of Auckland’s most exclusive wedding venues.. which we received back from Queensberry yesterday, will be on display at the show tomorrow, and then delivered to the venue on Sunday. So come & have a look before we (unfortunately) give it away!

Look forward to meeting some of you gorgeous people tomorrow.

Isaac & Amber.
