AH! My very first session in Colorado Springs. Moving from across the country and starting up business from scratch in a whole new area is definitely a difficult task. I know that I can provide quality work and a wonderful photography experience, but the challenge is marketing myself and reaching people who will be interested in my services. To help with this, I decided to run a free couples or engagement session giveaway. Entrants submitted a form telling me a little about themselves- how they met, what they like to do, why they deserve a free session, etc. I got SO many submissions and it was extremely hard to pick just one. Since I’m too nice sometimes, I decided to give away two completely free sessions. And one of those sessions was won by Amber and Justin. They’re a sweet military couple, who met ten years ago at their high school bus stop. Although they went their separate ways after high school, Justin was always there for Amber- even when they were thousands of miles apart and relied on letters for communication. Now they are happily married here in Colorado Springs and enjoy exploring the nature this beautiful state has to offer.
What better day than Veteran’s Day to share this lovely couple. I am forever grateful for the dedication and sacrifice put forth by our men and women in uniform. It’s all thanks to them for making America the greatest country on the planet!
