· wedding location(s)

· wedding date

· your wedding photographer's name and email address

· a brief paragraph about what makes your wedding special, highlighting the details and ideas you think were most important

If your wedding has not taken place yet but you would like us to consider it, please send us the first six items listed above, as well as the vendors you are working with, and any visuals or additional information that will help us get a better idea of what you have in mind for your big day.

We will contact you if we are interested in getting more information from you.

Have Me Submit for You

I have a submission account for industry professionals and I can personally submit weddings to about 400 online wedding sites such as:

and so much more!

If you are interested in having me submit for you email me at and in the subject line write “submission request”. I will send you a questionnaire and information on what and how to send photos. Please note, I will only submit weddings that I have participated in as a Makeup Artist. I cannot submit work I was not involved in.

As with all things there are no guarantees but wouldn’t it be so fun to relive the excitement of your wedding day by having it featured on a publication you likely got inspiration from? And to share ideas with others getting married is a beautiful thing too!
