Thank you for your interest in being published on the So Dearly Beloved blog. We look forward to seeing your beautiful work, but first would like to tell you what we are looking for and how to properly submit your photos.

Our aesthetic is very specific. We prefer a soft, romantic, ethereal tone with a warm pastel palette and lots of soft natural light. As such we will tend to favor film photography submissions, but will consider high-resolution digital images that deftly produce the same look. We are looking for complete photo collections that are not only aesthetically beautiful, but also tell a romantic story, and have unique and creative details that our readers will want to incorporate into their own events.

We only accept exclusive submissions. Please do not submit any photo that is currently being considered for publication, or has been published, on another blog, site or print publication within the past 3 months. You may, of course, submit any photo that is no longer being considered for publication. Please don’t submit a wedding that took place longer than 2 years ago.

Submissions may only be made by the wedding couple, official Photographer, or the official Wedding Planner (with consent from the Photographer).

You may complete your submission using Two Bright Lights

OR Email: submit@sodearlybeloved.com

Send a direct link to the gallery that features your collection. Please don’t forget to include all the password or access information. Your gallery should contain at least 75-100 photos. All images must be 1100 pixels wide, with no captions/branding/watermarks. We prefer that the majority be vertically-oriented.

We will try our best to respond to your query within 4-8 days but sometimes it may take up to 2 weeks to hear from us. Please be patient!

Now that you know what we like and how we wish to receive it, get those fantastic photos ready and send us something unabashedly romantic and dreamy!

A dreamy romantic/vintage look that is not too busy

A perfectly weaved photographic story of your featured couple

Tell us how you met this couple and what about them, or their wedding, inspired you.

Details! Lots of glorious details! (décor, cake, favors, cake topper, bridal suite, etc)

Photos that are styled beautifully – again, the details and how you capture them will set you apart.

Unique locations –  tell us about the venue and its surroundings

Creative elements – show us something our readers would love to “pin”.

Now that you know what we like and how we wish to receive it, get those fantastic photos ready and send us something unabashedly romantic and dreamy!
