Fujifilm Polaroid Camera Giveaway


One of my favorite things that I discovered and purchased while living abroad in Korea was a Fujifilm Polaroid camera. I absolutely love that little camera. I take it with me on special occasions as well as on special trips. Sure, it is a bit bulky and adds to my luggage but it's worth it. When Dave and I went to Hawaii this past March I took it with us and got some fun little pictures to remember our trip with. 

    

My favorite polaroid pictures were from my beach wedding. The total number of guests at my wedding came up to a total of 24 people - family and my closest friends. My friend Alisha went around and took polaroid pictures of everyone. That picture was then placed in a scrapbook where they wrote a message next to it. They could write a word of encouragement, a verse or whatever they wanted. I love that it was so personal and that their picture is right there. I also really cherish having wisdom on marriage from my parents, siblings and friends. Godly wisdom from those closest to you is just something special that I can't really put into words.


I've also used the camera at special occasions for other people. My friend here in Woodward opened a crossfit gym and I took some pictures with the Polaroid and gave it to her. When I visited my friend in California and met her baby, more polaroids! These little pictures are great for memories, showers, guestbooks and more.



Today I'm teaming up with Felecia, Rachel and Alex to give away a Fujifilim Instax Mini Camera + 1 pack of film (10 pictures) to one lucky winner. The pictures are pretty equivalent to the size of a credit card and are just so much fun. I've been wanting to give away this camera on my blog for a while now and I'm excited one of you readers will get it. The giveaway is open internationally as long as the international winner agrees to pay for shipping. The winner will be verified, etc. etc. Good luck!

  1. I always wanted a polaroid! I have an idea to create a "guest book" for when people come visit and stay at hour house... they will have to take a picture and write a little something about their stay. (Have recently seen people do this and it's such a cute way to remember your guests)

  2. I saw a fun idea with street photography... give the person an Instax photo of themselves as a thank you for allowing you to take their photos! Such a great idea! that's what I'd do if I won this!!

  3. P.S. I just realized after I followed S2SI on twitter that I was signed in with my personal account. So I followed the other two with my blog account. Not sure if it makes a difference, but thought I'd let you know.

  43. Not gonna lie, totally digging this camera and would love to win! :) I can just imagine all the opportunities I would have to snap some really awesome shots with the polaroid. Small groups, outdoor adventures, candids of family gatherings, a desolate main street at dusk; possibilities are endless! Probably will annoy my husband a lot if I do end up winning, but he can get over it. Not my fault he is so photogenic. ;)

  54. I LOVE polaroids. Had a camera back home in Sweden 10 years ago, but unfortunately it was very hard to find film for it so I unwillingly stopped using it. If I had a polaroid camera I would take it with me on my trip back home and capture moments with my family - it would make for wonderful memories to bring back to Hawaii :)
