Vote for your "best of" wedding video contest for 2012

I have something fun to start your Friday {weekend} off with. I am honored and thrilled to have been asked to be the official media sponsor of this years "best of" wedding video contest from Absolute Media Productions. Details on the contest can be viewed in the video below {including instructions on how to vote for your favorite video}. But, it's pretty simple - you can watch all the videos and then select your favorite and start voting. While watching these videos I realized how much I miss not having hired a videographer for our own wedding. It's so fun to re-live the wedding day with photos, but seeing the real motion and talking from the big day is just as special.

The video that accumulates the most votes will receive a $500 Visa Gift Card. The winning couple will also have their video published and announced as the AMP "Best VIdeo" of 2012 on {as Absolute Media Productions words it} one of the top 50 wedding blogs in the world, BrendasWeddingBlog.com {that's me, he he}. Such an honor. Plus, if the winning video accumulates over 25,000 plays, then Absolute Media Productions will match the $500 grand prize with an additional $500 donated to the charity of the winning couple's choice. That's why "sharing" is so important. To cast your vote, click the "share" button in the upper right hand corner of the video you wish to vote for.

Austin's goal is to attract a very specific type of DIY/unique wedding/vintage wedding. From Austin: "I started shooting weddings last year and really looked to bring a fine art documentary approach to the wedding day. I absolutely LOVE film and shoot about 90% film which seems to be nearly unheard of here in Indianapolis. I believe in film and love it for it's ability to bring out depth and contrast in the final image."

2. Names and wedding date
3. Wedding Location
4. Brief description detailing what makes your wedding unique or creative
