Submissions

PLEASE NOTE THAT SUBMISSIONS FOR ISSUE NO. 6 ARE CLOSED. ALL SUBMISSIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR EITHER THE BLOG OR ISSUE NO. 7, COMING IN OCTOBER OF 2017.

We will consider submissions from any professional wedding photographer in the United States. To be considered, the event must have taken place in the Commonwealth of Kentucky OR you must be a couple that has roots in Kentucky, but had a destination wedding or event. If your submission does not meet this criteria, but has relevance to our publication, please email at hello@kentuckybride.com to provide more information.

We are always looking for beautiful photos and we will consider all forms of wedding inspiration. Submit your bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, engagement photos, destination engagements and weddings, and of course your wedding images! Styled shoots are also considered.

What makes a submission great? Details. Our publication is meant to inspire brides and grooms who are planning their weddings. They want to see your unique ideas, color schemes, venue choices, menus, calligraphy, invitations, etc.

Please submit at least 100 photos. Please do not submit blog posts.

If you are submitting on behalf of your photographer, we must have written permission from the photographer/photographers to publish either on the blog or in print.

If your submission is chosen for either print or blog, we'll require additional information about the event from the parties involved.

Please note that we do not publish content that has already been published on other blogs or magazines. Please inform us if you have submitted this wedding elsewhere.

Due to the high number of submissions it can up to six weeks for us to respond. If you haven’t heard back from us and it’s been more than six weeks since you submitted or if you have any questions, please contact us and we'll be more than happy to respond.

We use the Two Bright Lights platform to view submissions. If you do not have an account with Two Bright Lights, you can make one here.

If you are not a professional photographer or do not have a TBL account, please submit here.

NOTICE: By submitting, you are allowing Kentucky Bride to use verbiage and images submitted.
