plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

interested in submitting a real wedding, style shoot, or trash the dress / day after / newlywed shoot to the landlocked bride®? submissions must meet the below criteria, as well as include specific information.

the images
for real weddings, please submit at least 75 web-ready images in a zipped file format for review. images should include detail shots, ceremony/reception photos, portraits and any other photos that really capture the emotion of the day, and must be labeled or numbered in the order of how events took place.  for all other submissions (newlywed, trash the dress and styled shoots), please submit a minimum of 45 images for consideration.  in addition, images should not contain watermarks or frames, and should be sent as individual photos.

we are NOT accepting engagement sessions at this time.

the details
all submissions must include all vendors, with the URLs to their web sites, if applicable, and a first-hand account from the bride and groom. stories from the couple can be as detailed as they would like, including memorable moments, funny stories and how they met. any submissions not including all details will not be considered for publication.

the fine print
please be sure to specify if you have submitted the wedding to other web sites and/or publications. submissions cannot have been featured on any other website other than the photographer’s, although exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. also, all weddings and sessions must have occurred within the last year, and have taken place in the midwest / mountain west region.

the turn-around
real weddings are typically featured within a month or two after approval.  the approval period is 1-2 weeks after submission.  all submissions will receive confirmation of receipt within 48 hours. if you do not receive confirmation, please send a follow-up email after 48 hours, as your submission may have been caught in our spam filter.

the contact
all submissions should be submitted via two bright lights or via email at realweddings (at) landlockedbride (dot) com with the subject specifying the type of session you are sharing and your company name. or, you can use a document sending / sharing site like dropbox.

submissions that do not include all of the above information will not be considered.
