Whether you are planning your wedding or you’re within the industry, you know all about wedding publications. You’ve flipped through the pages of a bridal magazine or scrolled along an inspiration blog. Did you know you were potentially looking at my work? Okay… the odds are slim, but with Two Bright Lights, it’s easier than ever to share your work and have it featured.


I, personally, love to submit my work because it gives the couple one more way to celebrate all the hard work that went into their day. Each event is so unique and personal. Having the affair featured can allow it to live on. I love the way it can inspire others through a well written story and beautiful images.


Point blank, this is the best submission tool you’re going to find. They have made it so easy to put your work out there! They have also given you access to send it to the industry’s top magazines and blogs. The website provides you with the ability to send client questionnaires, matches you with sources that compliment your submission, and allows you to message editors. The best part is that TBL offers a celebratory community that cheers you on as you get accepted over and over again. If you are looking to have your work featured this year, I suggest you sign up for membership TODAY.


I’ve been a member of TBL for a few years now, and while I’ve consistently submitted more each year, I have never truly set a goal for myself. To start the year strong, I spent a lot of time on submissions last month. I’m excited to say that I’ve already had three features published this year! Next year, I’d love to be amongst the Platinum Circle Winners. I have Jessica Hunt Photography to thank for pressuring me into this ambitious journey, but I am excited for the ride. <3

You can see my live feed of features here. I can’t wait to watch this grow in 2018!

    YES GIRL!!! As someone who is NOT a photographer, TBL seems like such a great tool for photogs to submit things but is also such a great collaborative place where all the vendors for a wedding or shoot can be in once place and access beautiful images!!
