Most people have a bucket list, or at least a rough outline in their head of one. We all have things we want to see/do/eat/experience before we “kick the bucket”. It’s a bit of a morbid idea actually if you really think about it, but it also can be life-giving. Keeping tabs on making sure you’re living life to the fullest is one of my life-goals. I haven’t actually written out my “life bucket list” but I have a some good ideas for it and fleshing that out is something I’d like to spend time doing this year. Thinking about that list got me thinking about smaller categories of it, namely my photography bucket list. And as I thought of all the things I would love to photograph I was struck with an idea: why not get my clients involved in creating some of these amazing images?
With that in mind, I’m super excited to announce a fun project I’m launching for this wedding season (and beyond!). Below is a running list (I’ll be adding to it!) of places, activities, and things I would be so jacked to shoot. So this is where you come in. If you’re getting married in one of these places, willing to try out one of these activities in front of the camera, or integrating one of these elements into your wedding or engagement shoot, I’ll give you a discount! The discount varies based off the bucket list item, but if you’re interested in one of them let me know and we’ll go from there! I’ll be offering everything from print and album credits to $$ off your wedding package so please don’t hesitate to ask me! Depending on the item I’ll allow more than one couple to do the same activity so if you see one of these things pop up on my blog or feed don’t worry; you can still get in on the fun!
