“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness–and call it love–true love.” Robert Fulghum

Beaux // #TheNickersonsCelebrate Day 05

What a great way to get the gentlemen in your life looking mighty dapper. You can enter on behalf of someone or for yourself!

Creme Bridal // #TheNickersonsCelebrate Day 04

Meet Bre. She’s the fabulous artist behind Creme Bridal: a mobile makeup and hair styling service for anyone who wants to get gussied up for a special occasion! I have had Bre do my makeup for a photo shoot with my family and she is great at what she does. I am not a super heavy makeup kind of person and Bre made some awesome choices for me that kept me looking fresh and natural! Bre also has a super lovely, lighthearted, and calming presence which I consider really important to have in a make-up artist on a wedding day or any day for that matter! I also got to see her in action when we photographed Elim & Riley’s wedding day (see a little peek below) and she did a fantastic job with the ladies’ hair.

Today’s giveaway is for a free makeup and hair session. Yes, that’s right, Bre will come to your home and do your hair and makeup for free! Get ready to feel pampered! This is perfect for any photo session you have planned (family, boudoir, maternity, engagement, etc) or it can be used as a trial for your wedding look. We suggest that you get your hair & makeup done by Bre, book a portrait session with us and go out for an evening on the town, but you can do whatever you’d like! Please note that this giveaway is not for wedding day hair & makeup.

vancouver_product_photographer001 vancouver_product_photographer002Here’s how to win (three ways!):

1. Check out Creme Bridal on Instagram. Take a wander through Bre’s posts and find one you think is stunning. Leave her a little love via a comment and make sure to tag #thenickersonscelebrate. While you’re at it, follow her! (One Entry)

2. Take a selfie and share it! Why? Because you are beautiful, even without professional hair & makeup and people need to see how great you look today (I know you’re looking awesome)! You can share a previously taken selfie or even a shot of you and someone you love together. Anyway, get a photo, share it on Facebook, Twitter OR Instagram with the following message: I’d love to win a free hair & makeup session from @CremeBridal for X (a night out with your beau, a photo shoot with your best friend, etc) #thenickersonscelebrate (Counts as two entries)

3. Head on over to Sarah’s instagram account. Like & comment on one of the two posts today (hint, they’ll look like two of the photos above) and tell us what you’re planning on using your free hair & makeup session for when you win! (One Entry)

One winner will be chosen by random draw on Friday May 23rd at 10am PST. Bre’s travel includes: Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Surrey, Langley, Delta, Coquitlam, and New Westminister. Anywhere beyond and travel fees will apply.
