say cheese at madison square park!

One of our all time favorite industry friends, Christopher Duggan from Threshold Visions, sat down with some other photographers recently and came up with this fantastic idea....basically they were thinking about how couples don't take enough pictures of themselves. Especially when you've been married for awhile these things seem to slip away, so they decided to give away free photo sessions to couples on February 13th to kick of Valentine's Day. How sweet!

Their Story...

While meeting over breakfast one morning, each of us realized that most couples do not have updated professional photographs of themselves. This is especially true for couples who have been married for several years. This Valentines Day, we want to give back to the awesome couples of New York City and offer a complimentary photography session to you.

How to Participate?

Any and ALL couples are welcome. Whether you be Newly engaged, newly wed, dating, married with children or married with grand-children….please come out and spread the love!

The Meet Up?

• On February 13th, we will meet at Madison Square Park from 3:00pm-5:00pm
• The meeting point is famous 5th avenue clock (5th Avenue and Broadway) located between 23rd and 24th Streets
• After a brief introduction we will begin working on-location with with you

Next Steps…

• Each photographer (3 total) will have 5 minutes to work with you to conceptualize and document a unique image/moment
• On February 14th by 2pm, a single image from each couple will be posted independently on the wedding photography websites of: Parris Whittingham Photography, R Wagner Photography, and Threshold Visions.

The Contest

• Anyone can vote on their favorite image on each of the 3 sites
• Voting closes Tuesday February 16th at 9:00pm
• The selected images/couple with the most votes across all 3 sites will be declared the contest winner

The Grand Prize

The winning couple with the most total votes (from all 3 sites) will receive:
• A complimentary engagement session with the photographer of their choosing (over $400-$1000 value)
• $200 print credit
• $100 gift certificate to Mario Batali’s OTTO Restaurant

NOTE: All couples who participate (by working with each photographer) will receive a high-resolution files from their photography session. Couples must consent to signing a model release to have their likeness publicly displayed. Portraits will be taken on a first come first service basis. We suggest arriving slightly before 3:00pm. Friends, employees and relatives of the photographers are allowed to participate, however, they are not eligible to win the grand prize.
