In collaboration with Carlene of Naturally Yours Events, I am giving away a free engagement shoot! And this isn’t any ordinary shoot…

UPDATE: As of January 29th, this contest is closed to new entries! Thank you to everyone who submitted such lovely stories!


…first of all, this is one of my luxury engagement shoots, meaning that makeup and hairstyling are provided for you to help you look your best. The best part? Carlene will style the shoot so that your engagement photographs will look utterly unique and special.


  • One stylized engagement shoot in Chicago
  • A feature story on our blogs
  • High-resolution electronic copy of images for your use
  • Two 11”x14” prints on deluxe metallic paper


  • Please submit your name and your fiance(e)’s name, your phone number, your email address, and your wedding date in the form below, or else meet Carlene at Indie Wed on January 28th and enter in person.
  • We want to get to know you as a couple, so tell us your love story! Please answer one of the following questions in no more than three sentences:

1) How did you meet?

3) What’s your favorite thing to do together?
