WELCOME TO OUR NEW SUBMISSION FORM

UPDATED JUNE 7: We’re primarily looking for real BIPOC weddings to share as we don’t usually receive for consideration. If you think you have a wedding that’s a fit for us, please send it our way!

 

Our submissions are selected based on photography style, event styling, decor details and story. Please see details below for the types of submissions we look for.

 

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 haley@ruffledblog.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.

No matter our decision, please continue to keep us in mind when shooting and submitting features in the future!
