Highlight Unique Details: Wedding publications are always on the lookout for fresh, trendsetting, and inspiring content to captivate their readers and stand out in the crowded wedding industry. Wedding blogs love unique, creative, never-seen-before details. Showcase any distinctive elements from the wedding, such as decor, personal touches, dresses, venues, or themes. Submit Real Weddings: Many wedding blogs feature real weddings with a narrative and a variety of photos that tell a story. Some publications feature styled shoots but their seems to be priority over real events.
Submit complete wedding stories: Submitting a complete wedding day that tells an entire story rather than single images can increase your chances of getting featured.
Become a member: Having a paying connection with a publication is a sure-bet to getting featured, especially if it's in the contract! If you have a membership, you are much more likely to have priority over getting featured!
Exclusivity: Some blogs ask if you have submitted to other publications or ask for exclusivity rights for a certain time period. Be selective with your images: You want to choose enough images that document the event in its entirety while also being selective with your photos to really showcase stand out imagery. You are much more likely to get featured if you submit a curated gallery of 30 images rather than simply giving them the wedding gallery link of 678 photos that the editor has to cull through!
