We’re always on the lookout for new posts whether it’s from a photographer showcasing a recent wedding, you’ve got some advice for nearly weds, or you’ve got something else you think would be a good fit for the Let’s Bee Together blog.
If you've got one-off photos that you’d like to share with us then you can always hashtag your photos with #letsbeetogether on Instagram, and we might repost your image and give you credit (of course)! But let's talk about more official wedding blog submissions…
We love wedding related events of all sizes, so whether it’s a budget friendly bridal shower, a beautifully styled themed event, or a wedding fit for a queen, we would love to hear from you! We're big fans of stunning photography with lots of natural light, personal touches make our heart flutter, and of course happy couples is what we’re all about!
If you are a photographer and would like to submit your wedding related event please have the permission of the couple BEFORE submitting.
We’re looking for:
- Images from the beginning until the end of the day
- Getting ready shots
- Details galore!
- Full length shots of the wedding dress and the groom’s attire
- Wedding cake(s), food and any refreshments
- All the decoration details and any DIY items
- The wedding venue inside and out
- Romantic portraits of the happy couple
- If there was a first look we absolutely love those!
- Shots of the bride(s) and/or groom(s) with the wedding party
We don’t really want to see:
- Lots of formal posed group shots
- Over-edited photos, art/vintage effects and over/under exposed photos
- Photos taken by guests
WHAT TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHY SHOOTS DO YOU ACCEPT?
Trash the dress
HOW MANY PHOTOS SHOULD I SEND?
Around 80-100 images would be great!
WHAT KIND OF IMAGES SHOULD I SEND?
We love colourful photographs with lots of natural light. Images must contain no visible watermark, or borders.
WILL EVERY PHOTOGRAPH BE PUBLISHED?
We hand pick the photographs that we feel are the best fit for our site, so it’s not likely that we’ll publish every single one of them.
IS THERE A PHOTO SIZE REQUIREMENT?
The larger, the better! We won’t use any images which are lower than 800px width at 72dpi. Our aim is to showcase events in high quality.
HOW CAN I MAKE SURE THAT MY FEATURE IS SUCCESSFUL?
We recommend letting all participating vendors know that you’re being featured so that they too can promote the blog post through their social media platforms or pop a badge on their website. The more people who know about it, the more shares it is likely to get, and the more eyes will see your work!
We love receiving work from bloggers, writers, journalists, and various wedding professionals. If you’re interested in becoming a regular contributor and have some great wedding ideas for the blog then we would love to hear from you. Get in touch by email with the subject line “guest blog post submission”. In the email simply tell us what your line of posts would be about (maybe it’s D.I.Y, how to arrange your own flowers, calligraphy tips… whatever you love doing and think would be a good fit for Let’s Bee Together) and send us a few examples of your work. We’ll have a nosey and let you know if we think you’ll be a good match for the blog and if so then woohoo.
A few notes to keep in mind:
- We accept articles of varying lengths from 250-1500 words
- Content must be original
- All photos which are submitted must include relevant photo credit and authorisation of use
- References must include appropriate cites
Little gems of advice for nearly-weds are welcome on the Let’s Bee Together blog (we usually put them on social media as well). These pieces of advice are much smaller than a full blown article (around 70 words or less) and should be a tip to help future couples with planning their wedding or wedding related event.
You can include a headshot or a relevant photograph with your advice submission, as well as your business name, and contact information.
If Let’s Bee Together publishes your blog then we expect you to share it across your social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.) within two days of the post going live.
Any social media posts should include a reference to LetsBeeTogether.com appropriate for that platform with a link back to the blog post.
We expect you to post a link to your article on your blog or website (if you have one) within 72 hours of it being published on Let’s Bee Together.
If you have an email subscribe list, we highly encourage you to promote your article in your next e-newsletter or email.
We love to credit every supplier that gets featured on Let’s Bee Together so we’ve designed our very own badge for you to put on your website or blog! If you’ve been featured on our blog and you’ve not yet popped a badge on your site then you can email us and ask for one of these so your visitors can see your fantastic work!
Contact us here.
Please include 100-150 photographs for real wedding blog submissions and around 50 photographs for smaller blog submissions such as engagement sessions, styled shoots, proposals, etc. Photos should be sent in .jpg form at 1000 px wide, without watermarks or borders.
Here you should include a link to a blog post, an online photo gallery, Dropbox, or a service like Shootproof, Pixieset etc.
