WELCOME TO OUR NEW SUBMISSION FORM
NOTE: At the moment, we’re giving a stronger preference to real weddings over styled shoots. For styled shoots, workshops and shootouts, due to the current volume we’re experiencing, we’re giving a stronger preference to those editorials where there’s at least one vendor who is a part of our directory if the submitted content is a good fit. If you’d like to learn more about our curated vendor & venue directory and how to join, please email email@example.com.
First of all, thank you for your interest in submitting your wedding or editorial! We’ve been sharing inspiring design and love stories since 2008, and we would love to work with you. Should your submission be declined, please be rest assured that you might be selected with future submissions. No matter our decision, please continue to keep us in mind when shooting and submitting features in the future!
We have a brand new submission form, please note changes on how to submit a wedding below as some fields have changed.
