Your Wedding! Featured!

Tons of wedding websites, blogs, and publications regularly feature the stories and images of real weddings. We've all used the high end, super glam, over the top professional photo shoots to get inspiration for our own weddings. But these REAL weddings can really bring things back to reality, and can be much more helpful in letting you know what to actually expect.

The great part about real wedding images is that your vendors work so hard to come so close to the staged shoots that you get nearly the same look and feel, but not at the same price! You don't lose much in the translation when you've got the right people working for you!

Getting your wedding photos featured in a wedding blog or publication is SUCH a FUN way to remember your day. Plus it gives you a great little souvenir!

To help get your wedding featured we've got some tips to help:

  • Include the best shots of you and your new or soon to be spouse {Smiles, Action, Dramatic Backdrops}
  • Provide detail shots of flowers, tabletop decor, interesting or innovative signs, favors, seating assignment table, decorative elements, food close-ups, the cake, your invitation suite, or any personal touches you've added
  • Feature shots that display details of the church, a view of the entire reception or ceremony scene
  • Show the wedding party with the bride or groom
  • Don't submit out-of-season images or already published images {i.e. your winter wedding for the summer issue}
  • Submit only the best 50-75 Images {sending your whole library will get your submission quickly disposed}
  • Be SURE to check for any specific guidelines the blog or publication has regarding submissions and make sure you have a release form from your photographer {file sizes, digital images only, watermarked or logo'd images}
  • The BIGGEST tip of all: Find a Photographer whose work you love and you're comfortable working with. {Being posed and directed by somebody you're not completely comfortable with ends with awkward photos}
