Submit Your Real Weddings, Portrait Sessions, and Styled Shoots
Our goal at Junebug Weddings is to empower couples around the world with the inspiration and resources to create a celebration worthy of their love. The aim of our editorial is to connect couples with ideas for planning a wedding representative of them, as well as the talented vendors who can make their vision a reality. We work hard to represent all cultures, religions, and styles in our editorial.
What can I submit?
Our primary focus is to showcase real wedding planning ideas, so the majority of what we accept are real weddings and elopements. That said, we also accept couple portrait shoots, styled shoots, and bridal and boudoir portrait shoots.
How many photos should I submit?
Real Wedding: 100-150
Styled Shoot/Portrait Session: 75-100
What specs should the photos be?
All images must be .jpgs sized at 2048 px wide, sRGB color space, with no watermarks. Please send only single images. We will not accept diptychs or collages.
I want to send this submission to another blog/publication. Can I do that?
We ask that you give us exclusive rights to your content for at least 90 days. We hope that you respect our request as we feel very strongly about bringing our readers original content.
I want to post this submission to my own blog. Can I do that?
We encourage all wedding vendors to share their work on their blogs! This is a great way for couples to fall in love with what you do. Posting images from the submission to your vendor blog does not hurt your chances of publication, nor does it violate our exclusivity policy (see above).
How long should I expect to wait before hearing back about my submission?
We are honored to receive a large volume of submissions each week, and as a result, we cannot personally reply to them all. A Junebug team member will get back to you within 15 business days if your submission will fit into our editorial schedule at this time.
What we look for in a submission:
The first thing we look for when considering a wedding is distinctive personal style. We love to see weddings that really show off the personalities of the couple, unique wedding planning ideas and details that our readers can get excited about and find inspiration in. We also love a great story or connection to the couple and their wedding planning experience. Finally, solid, artistic, and consistently-processed photography is a must.
A few tips for what makes a great submission:
Please note: Junebug's editorial content is chosen solely on excellence and its value to our readers. We offer a very limited number of sponsored articles or blog posts featuring businesses and products we believe in, and those posts are always labeled as such. We do not guarantee product reviews if items are sent to us. If Junebug member businesses are featured in editorial on our site, it is based on merit only.
If we accept your submission and do not receive all necessary materials within 3 months, we will not be able to move forward with the feature. Submissions are accepted based on our current editorial needs, and a delay in publication inhibits us from providing current, on-trend content to our readers. If you have not heard from our Editorial team with a publication date for your feature, we have not received all materials.
