Whether you are a bride, a talented photographer or an event designer, we would love to hear from you! We receive hundreds of submissions for Love Notes and Pacific Weddings, so here are a few suggestions for getting published.
What makes a submission stand out? We love a good story, gorgeous images and lots of detail shots.
Professionals can submit weddings through our Vendor CMS, which is powered by LOVMedia.Net (our preferred method). Submitting your photos through LOVMedia's media platform allows us to manage your submissions with a single-click (and it's free to use). If you are a bride looking to submit your wedding photos please email our editors at firstname.lastname@example.org with your submission.
Keep in mind:
Things you need to know before you submit: please resist the temptation to blog about your wedding or share the photos ahead of time with other blogs and bridal magazines. Once we break the story, we don't mind if you share the images. (It's a journalism thing!)
If your wedding is selected for publication (either online or in the magazine), you will be asked to complete a formal submission form which requires the signatures of the couple as well as a photographer's release.
An editor will then call you to get a personal account of your story so you can share the finer (juicy) details of your courtship and wedding day firsthand.
Keep on submitting! If you are a photographer who has submitted before, don't be discouraged. We have more opportunities than ever to share your work via our website and magazine. Besides, we love to support our fellow colleagues whenever we can, so send us all your best weddings, not just one. Also keep in mind, we give preference to our sponsors out of fairness.
