Having a wedding published, as a wedding photographer, somehow makes us feel legit. I mean, I know my wedding images are great and my clients think they are great – but for whatever reason, it’s such a wonderful feeling to know a wedding blogger thinks they are awesome too, awesome enough to grace the virtual pages of their blog.
Last year I signed up for Two Bright Lights just after Katie + Justin’s wedding. If you are not familiar with Two Bright Lights, and you’re in the wedding industry, you should definitely check them out. As a photographer, it’s super easy to upload images, fill out a little bit of information about the clients and the vendors we worked with and submit to various blogs.
I submitted Katie’s wedding to Grey Likes Weddings, and literally what seemed like minutes (okay, maybe that’s just a slight exaggeration, but it wasn’t more than two days) Summer had emailed me wanting to publish their wedding day on the blog. I mean, really. What’s not to love about their wedding – take a look at the post for yourself. You might find yourself drooling…be warned! 😉
My 2012 brides will find their wedding published as well. There is a wedding blog out there for anyone – rustic, vintage, country, big budget, small budgets…and I can’t wait!
It’s not always about the details, but it does help. As a wedding photographer, I like these little pieces. They help tell the story. They make your day just a little more personal. A little more YOU.
Speaking of a little more you – I want to end this post with a couple photos from Jess & Josh’s wedding day. Handmade jam from fruit picked at her grandmother’s house. Can’t get anymore personal than that!
This just in…Another wedding from August (and one from my girls at Mendocino Wedding & Events) will be published within the next few weeks. Ceremony at the Overlook and lunch at Mendo Bistro. Organic & Classy. Perfection.
