Announcing: Give-A-Day 2019
For me Give-A-Day is about living life with intention, purpose, and working to make a difference in and for the lives of others. This year I am partnering with Amanda Marie Studio, which I am super excited about! We have worked together on numerous occasions, and she’s someone I really look up to. I’m constantly inspired by her kindness and generosity that’s behind her beautiful work. Not to brag for her… but she was recently nominated as 1 of the top 100 photographers in the United States. Soo… YAY!!
Our concept is simple. We give a day as a videographer and photographer to you and your partner. You, as a couple, give a day to a pre-approved non-profit organization. Boom! My hope has always been that the impact of Give-A-Day will ripple outwards. Each of us donates a day of our time to you and your story, so we’re asking the winning couple to do the same. We give. You give. Hearts get bigger. It’s a win-win-win.
Here’s how to submit your wedding story to Give-A-Day (it’s easy, we promise):
Share one of our “Give-A-Day” posts on Instagram or Facebook and please write up a little something about how we are having a giveaway and why you are hoping to win! Please make sure we are both tagged so we can see it.
Submit an inquiry via one of our websites Sky Focus Films or Amanda Marie Studio letting us know when and where you’re getting married, which organization you’ll be donating your time to and why, and fill us in on your story. We take great care in reviewing the stories that come our way, so those who take time to submit creative (include images!), thoughtful entries are definitely a bonus! You are also free to submit your entry via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be prepared to act! If chosen, you and your partner must be willing to dedicate a full day of volunteering each to the charity of your choice (ex. 8 hours a day together/16 hours total). We will need a copy of the completion document from your charity prior to your wedding day.
You don’t need to be in Minneapolis or even Minnesota to enter! We accept entries from anywhere. A non-local winner will be responsible for travel costs for Amanda and I.
If you already have a photographer or cinematographer booked for your day, you can still enter! Just let us know if you are submitting for only videography or photography.
The deadline for submissions is no later than 5PM Central Time, Monday October 15th, 2018. The winner will be announced on Friday, October 19th, 2018.
Every year I feel so honored and humbled by the moving stories shared with us. Thank you in advance to those of you who will enter!
