Community Support Needed! 3 minutes of your time!

Pwetty Pwease...help me brothers!
OK.
So I feel semi-bad asking for this.
It's not geek-related.
It's actually real life stuff.

My beautiful girl and I are getting married in June 2012 and have found searching for a wedding photographer to be a massive PITA.
The cost is RIDICULOUS! From £1000-£2700 so far.. I'm a poor teacher and she is a junior graphic designer..giving her the perfect wedding...not all that easy...


Now, I don't want your money.. I'd really like you to comment....HERE...

We've entered a comp to win a wedding photographer and have written a little piece about why we should get it... We've been short listed to the final 6 and need people to vote.. by commenting and just saying:

VOTE ANDREW AND MIKAELA!

I'd skip to the END of the page guys..it's looong!

All you need is a name ( I think we all have one) and an email address (this does not show up on the site, but an anti-spam thing to avoid cheating!) and you can comment on the site..

It'll take you seconds, but it could grant my fiance her perfect photographer... you don't even need to read it! Just comment - vote andrew and mikaela..

I'd love it if even a few of you could spare a minute to help a brother out. 
I'm trying to provide the best possible wedding for Mikaela and if you've enjoyed reading the blog over the last year or so, please help out and show your appreciation...of course if you can' be arsed....fair enough!


Plus, you do this...I'll be able to spend my money on plastic crack and more blog goodness will come from that...give and receive baby! Or something...

    Whoo! Cheers boys! Brad...we're struggling as it is versus the Indian 400-strong wedding!! Don't vote for them! lol
    Sin - it's pretty goddamn pink! You'd have thought 3++ would have acclimatised us all to the power of pink!

  18. Lol looks like they've got half of India voting for them.

  19. Will do.

    If it doesn't work out, try this guy: http://www.prem-art.com/ We used him for our wedding and he was really fantastic, and he's just starting out so he isn't too expensive. Tell him Andrew & Johanna recommended him and you may also get a discount as we were his first project in the UK.

    Cheers, Andy

    If we all use our awesome geek power then a fellow geek might actually win something in this real world game thingy people seem to think is so important!!!

  25. I voted for you and I really hope you get it. I would have loved one for my wedding but my uncle did it and he did a good job but it wasn't the same as a pro photographer.
