For the past decade, I've been blessed to work with amazing creative teams to create and document unforgettable weddings. Over the years I've been published in national magazines (The Knot, Town&Country, Inside Weddings, Destination I Do, Ceremony, Brides, to name a few) and the most recognized wedding blogs in the world (the likes of Martha Stewart, Style Me Pretty, and Green Wedding Shoes, amongst others), but none of it would've been possible without the guidance and encouragement from a powerful creative team led by the desire to see our work published. For over 10 years, I learned how to hustle and get my photography seen by hundreds of thousands of people by way of publication. This Wedding Submission Guide is everything I know about the publication process, what I’ve learned along the way, and insight from incredible industry leaders.
And it’s yours. All yours. This guide walks you through a step-by-step process of how to curate the strongest submission and ensure your wedding is noticed by editors.
In order to make the transfer of information as seamless as possible, this 36-page guide includes the following:
