Enter to Win a Free Stylized Engagement Session

At the 2012 winter Indie Wed show, Tuan H. Bui Photographer and Naturally Yours Events  teamed up to offer one lucky couple a free stylized engagement shoot. The session included all the images, custom event stylizing, hair/makeup, and even a video from Bokeh Line.  Our winners, Chelle and Dave, were a blast to work with and the shoot  fit their fun and quirky relationship perfectly.  You can read all about their submission HERE.





To enter, stop by Naturally Yours Events’ booth at Indie Wed on February 2nd. Or if you can’t make it to Indie Wed, you can enter HERE – contest closes Saturday, February 9th. We’re asking for the normal stuff – your names, wedding date, a way to contact you if you win, and we want to hear your love story (i.e. how you met, how’d you pop the question, or what’s the most unique/interesting thing about your relationship?). With this information we can really customize a unique engagement session to fit your style.



We got to know Chelle and Dave and found that they are truly kids at heart. Many of their dates and most memorable moments (like when Chelle and Dave got stuck in the rain under a viaduct on their second date) involved picnicking near Lake Michigan. So, we took the idea of a picnic a step further as they built a “home” out of blankets, right off Lake Michigan complete with skyline views – and spaceship sheets!
