Giving is Awesome!

Are you a bride who would like custom photography for your big day, but in no way can afford it? This is where Giving is Awesome comes in.

Giving is Awesome is a website that has 250 photographers nationwide donating over $240,000 worth of photography to those who deserve it.

You can nominate yourself, or if you know of couples who deserves it, you can nominate them as well! This is just in time for the holiday season (and also in time for our horrible economy). I think it’s a wonderful idea for brides who want to remember their big day!

You simply go to the nomination page for “Regular People” and look at the map to see if there is a photographer local to you offering their services. I clicked on the only one in southern Louisiana, just to give you an example.

Then, you go to their website or contact them for more details!

I just wanted to pass the word along, since photography can break the budget, and some of you may have experienced some tragedies lately that have messed up your original plans.

Hope this helps!

Do you know of any other resources for brides in need?  Share them with the hive!

    You can’t nominate yourself, so it would be great if we could identify people to nominate!

    It is so awesome to be able to do something like this for people – thanks for helping to spread the word!

    (And for the reminder that I didn’t put my “pin” in the map when the site was upgraded. Eep! Off to do that right now!)

    @doctorgirl:Thanks for catching that! I couldn’t find rules on the website on how to nominate so I’m glad you found it!
