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.
Yes, we do accept styled shoots and we love them! Here's some important information:
When considering styled shoots for print, we look for shoots that have not been excessively shared on social media and/or blogs. It's important that we present fresh and unseen material to our readers. If you would like your styled shoot to be considered exclusively for print, please try not to give too much away when posting to your social media and web outlets.
PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW BEFORE YOU SUBMIT.
Please submit at least 100 photos and no more than 300 photos. Consider the highlights of the day and the DETAILS. The photos that are submitted should showcase the essence of the day. We look closely at the details, the consistency, and the composition. Please do not submit blog posts. We ask that you share a digital and downloadable gallery of images.
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. You are also required to fill out all applicable vendor details.
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Please note that we do not publish content that has already been published on other blogs or magazines.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.
