Can I still use 2020 as an excuse for why this giveaway is coming at you later this year? (Just say yes. I need a pass.) It might be a littttle bit later than usual, but my sixth-annual New Year’s engagement session giveaway is here! Yes!! It has been SIX YEARS since I started this giveaway. Crazy!! This has become one of my favorite things all year that I look forward to! I always get introduced to so many sweet couples, and I ALWAYS enjoy getting to meet the winning couple!!

Over the past few years as part of this giveaway, I’ve also given away $50 to a random someone who helps me spread the word. BUT, I’m changing it up this year. Instead of giving away cash, I’m going to do a secondary session giveaway! That’s right—not only is an engagement session up for grabs (you must be engaged to enter this one), I’m also giving away another session that can be used for families / couples! Read on and be sure to follow the instructions closely—if you do something incorrectly, your entry may not count. (And I don’t want that!) (Don’t worry—it’s not hard to enter!)

Before I jump in, I want to give a huge THANK YOU for all of your support in 2020. I mean, it was just incredible. Did you know that 2020 was my best year in business yet? This truly leaves me speechless, because I know so many businesses and families suffered in 2020. So thank you, truly, from the very bottom of my heart. Thank you for choosing me to for your photos. It is a true honor and dream come true. Thank you.

Now on to the good stuff:


To be eligible for the engagement session, you must be currently engaged and have NOT had engagement pictures taken or be booked with another photographer to have them taken.

All you have to do to enter is fill out this form: CLICK HERE TO ENTER TO WIN.


There are TWO ways to enter. You do not have to do both. However, if you do both, you will get 2 entries instead of 1. (AKA, each way equals 1 entry.)

  1. Share this Facebook post on your wall: GO TO THE POST. The post must be set to public so I can see that you shared it. (While you’re at it, stop by my Facebook business page and give it a like!) This giveaway is in no way affiliated with Facebook.
  2. Tag 3 friends on this Instagram post: GO TO THE POST. Tagging more than 3 friends is encouraged and so appreciated, but multiple comments will still only count as 1 entry. This giveaway is in no way affiliated with Instagram.

For an extra entry, you can share the image below on your Instagram story and tag me, @karly.richardson in the blue box! That’s it! Easy-peasy. (Don’t forget to tag me. If you don’t tag me, I won’t see the story.)


Winners will be selected at random on January 29th. I will make every effort to contact the engagement session winner, and portrait session winner, but if I am unable to reach them within 1 week, they will forfeit their prize. Each couple only gets 1 entry into the engagement session giveaway—using multiple email addresses or signing up the bride and groom for separate entries will not be permitted. The engagement session must be booked in 2021. Everyone is eligible to enter the giveaways, regardless of where they live (SC, GA, and beyond). However, travel fees may apply outside of the Columbia, SC area. Participants who enter the engagement session giveaway may also enter to win the portrait session giveaway; however, ONLY engaged couples may enter the engagement session giveaway. For questions about the giveaway, please reach out to hello.krichardson [at] gmail [dot] com.

My passion is in documenting the lives of our families well (mine and yours), and teaching you how to do it too. Follow along as I share photography tips, inspiration, and beautiful portraits.
