Out of all the stories we cover at Pacific Weddings®, the real weddings are everyone’s favorite. Whether you are a bride-to-be or a talented photographer, we would love to hear from you! And while I don’t want to add to your already long list of resolutions, I thought I would give you a few pointers on how to get published in Pacific Weddings® this year.
- The not-so-fine print
Things you need to know before you
submit: Pacific Weddings will not accept any weddings that have been
previously published, so 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!)
- Anyone can submit
It doesn’t matter whether you are a bride, photographer, florist or the mother-of-the-bride, we want to hear from you!
- Email our art director, Halii Iaea, at email@example.com
Besides being exceptionally talented, he’s a really nice guy and he reviews each and every one of the submissions we receive. You can simply email your names, wedding date and location, and a link to your photos. If they are not posted online, you can send us a few low resolution images and– Viola– the submission is under way.
- Give us your autograph
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. You will also be required to fill out a brief and amazing description of your wedding details.
- The interview
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 sending
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 blog, website and magazine. Besides, we love to support our fellow colleagues whenever we can, so send us all your best weddings, not just one.
We look forward to hearing from you–this is one resolution you can check off your list early! xo~robyn
