Win A Photo Session With
Kunio Photography!

July 4th, 2011 by Jeannine

Kunio Photography

Hi everyone! Have I got a treat for you :) I’m very excited to announce that Kunio Photography has graciously sponsored a contest for Vancity Bride readers! I met the photographer, Jun Ying, just over a month ago and got to know him a little bit. He’s a recent SFU grad with a design background and has been shooting for 2 years. He has a passion for storytelling and what better way to tell a love story than by capturing those special moments between a couple? He says it’s something he strives for in every shoot.

The Prize

A complimentary 1.5-2 hr engagement or couple’s session at the venue of your choice.
  • Includes 1 DVD with approximately 70-100 digital files of professionally edited photos
  • Makeup application for the photoshoot by Elena Tsang – a freelance makeup artist with Envy Me Studio, a Blanche MacDonald grad, and she is known for her “natural beauty” approach in makeup application

Total prize is valued at $550 and it could be yours!

How To Enter

There are three ways to enter:

Contest Rules and Conditions

  • You must be a Metro Vancouver resident.
  • Each person can only have a maximum of 3 entries, 1 each on my blog, my Facebook page and Kunio Photography’s facebook page. For blog comments, you must provide a valid email address and for Facebook entries, I must be able to send you a message in case you win.
  • The contest will run for one week from July 4-10.
  • The winner will be drawn at random on July 11 and will be announced on my blog, Twitter, and Facebook.
  • I will contact the winner by email/Facebook. If the winner doesn’t respond within 48 hrs, a new winner will be randomly drawn.
  • The winner will have 30 days to redeem the prize once contacted by Kunio Photography.
  • Makeup application for the shoot will be done at a location that is mutually agreed on by Elena and the winner.

UPDATE – July 11, 2011

Out of 64 entries, I’ve finally determined the winner and it is…


Congratulations Rachelle! Enjoy your photoshoot with Kunio Photography :)

    My husband and I never gotten a chance to take our engagement pictures because of the finance budget we had. We were just chatting a couple of days ago while we’re painting our brand new condo we just purchased about how we wished we took engagement pictures but didn’t. We would love to have our pictures taken professionally. Our one year wedding anniversary was last month :)
