Submissions are accepted from brides, photographers, videographers, planners and other industry professionals. I am currently accepting submissions in the following categories:

-Real Weddings
-Wedding Events (Bridal Showers, Rehearsal Dinners, etc)
-DIY Projects
-Styled Shoots

If you have another idea for a submission please don’t hesitate to contact me! I am always on the lookout for unique and original content.

Please Note: The events must take place in Arizona and ideally should have taken place within the last 2 years.

My goal is to provide brides with original content and therefore I would love to be the first to feature the photos.  However, I will consider submissions that have already been published provided that you disclose this information upon submission.

Submission Guidelines 

What I am looking for:

-Details, details, details!  I want to see what made the wedding truly you!
-Photos that tell the story of the event from start to finish
-Photos that show the personality and emotions of the day: passion, fun, surprise, love, laughter…I want it all!
-Photos that show any DIY projects you or your family/friends created

Note:  I am looking to feature all types of Arizona weddings, from rustic to glam, vintage or  traditional, crafty and budget friendly and everything in between.
