Photography Q&A – Getting your Wedding Published

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending a conference given by Rebecca Crumley, Wedding Photo Editor of The Knot magazine. I’ve been following her on twitter for some time, and she is absolutely a joy. Rebecca cares so much about her job, and she was extremely gracious when I asked her for an interview for our blog about how to get your wedding published.

How to get your Wedding Published

What advice can you give brides who want to have their weddings published?
Really take the time to come up with creative ideas that are both unique to you and original. Take inspiration from everything we share on, but if you directly copy the ideas, it’s already done. But more importantly, it’s your wedding and remember that—it’s not a media event!

What are the things you are looking for in a wedding submission?
Details, details, details. It’s very important that you work with your photographer on your time schedule to leave time for décor photos. It takes time to pull it off properly, so if your goal is to have your wedding published, this needs to be allotted for in your day’s schedule.

What are the top must have wedding details?
Cake, bouquets, stationery (yes! Bring your invitation to the wedding day so your photographer can shoot it), an overall of both the reception and ceremony before the guests arrive, candid bridal party shots, table décor, boutonnieres, favors, exits, and more details….

What is the worst mistake a bride can make in terms of wedding decor?
Broad answer: not consistently matching your colors. So make sure your stationery matches the overall palette

Fine tune answer: wrinkled linens

What nice wedding trends are you seeing for 2011?

How to be on time to your wedding?

how to be on time to your wedding ceremonyThere seems to be a new trend developing in modern weddings: Being late. This year, 80% of our weddings have started late, which has me thinking. Is there a new wedding etiquette that I’m not aware of. Or is there a wedding reality TV show laying out that it’s OK for the bride to be late. The answer is simpler.

Since we are in a DIY era, brides, who are not hiring wedding planners, are preparing out their own wedding timelines. And when creating their timeline, brides are not factoring things that are part of a wedding day, but not part of the ritual, like greetings, bustling, retouching, walking and the unexpected; in some cases, brides are not adding traffic to the equation, and if it normally takes them fifteen minutes to go from their house or hotel to the ceremony site, they are only factoring fifteen minutes.

The result is brides being consistently late.

Consequences of Being Late
A wedding timeline is like the mechanism that makes a clock work, if you offset one thing, it will offset the rest. Since the end time is the only thing that will not change, by adding time to certain parts of the day; you are taking time away from other parts.READ MORE
