Hello, wedding photographers, videographers, and planners!

We love you and we love featuring your work on Offbeat Bride. We are overwhelmed by the amount of unsolicited submissions we receive from businesses, and we've learned that our readers most love hearing about weddings directly from the married couple themselves. With this in mind, we encourage you to ask them to submit their wedding to us directly, filling out this handy-dandy questionnaire!

If, however, you'd like to submit a wedding to us directly, please read this page carefully…

Vendor submission guidelines

Due to the amount of unsolicited vendor submissions we receive from vendors, we do not respond to submissions that do not follow the guidelines below.

  • Diversity is our highest editorial priority. Since so many of our reader submissions are young white straight couples, and the wedding industry is generally challenged by reflecting diversity, we strongly favor vendor submissions featuring ethnically or otherwise diverse couples (LGBT, older couples, disabilities, etc). We recognize that prioritizing diversity can be a sensitive subject, and we need your help to make sure we're representing people from ALL walks of life on Offbeat Bride.
  • We're most interested in real photos from real weddings. We'll review your engagement shoots, trash the dress sessions, fashion shoots, and styled shoots… but for reasons discussed here, we really mostly love wedding photos. We love weddings that are colorful, and photos that aren't overly processed.
  • Minimal watermarking. We're obsessive with attribution. We credit and link photographers at the top and bottom of our posts.
  • We do not feature work submitted to other wedding publications. While we're fine if vendors have written about the wedding on their own websites, out of respect to other wedding publications, we do not feature work that has already been featured on other wedding blogs or publications. If we are not able to feature your submission, we'll get back to you within a week so that you can submit it elsewhere!
  • Read how to submit photos to wedding blogs.

Please note that we usually have a fairly long queue of features on our schedule, so if your submission is accepted, we may not have room to publish it for a month or more. Thank you so much for your patience with us!
