Submissions

Since 2009, on La mariée aux pieds nus, our purpose has been to help couples create their wedding day and make it truly about the two of them. So thank you for your interest in sharing your work and/or wedding day with the La mariée aux pieds nus readers.
You will find on this page all informations regarding submissions.

How to submit your pictures ?

Submissions have to be made by email via lmapn.publications@gmail.com. Given the number of messages received, no request sent via Facebook or Instagram can be taken into account.

Each reportage must have been the subject of a publication authorization from the couple who will share with the readers of the blog, a part of their story. Because what matters is the story of these couples, without testimony, the wedding / work is unlikely to be published.

What kind of submissions are we looking for?

Real weddings. We love sharing simple, authentic,, laid back, nature inspired weddings with our readers and believe that there is no right way to throw a wedding except yours, and that’s it’s ok to break traditions to make this day their own.

A simple gathering in a backyard, an intimate wedding on a farm in the mountains, or a minimalistic wedding in a loft, we truly love them all ! So thank you for sharing these days with us !

Please make sur to properly credit all the vendors involved : Dress : | Accessories: | HMUA : | Suit : | Photographer : | Videographer : | Flowers: | Venue : | Caterer : | Wedding planner : | DJ : | Musicians : | Decor : | Stationery : | Wedding Cake : |

Engagement sessions. Whether it be outdoor or a stately home, it must be creative, inspirational and above all show a loving couple! For more detailed guidance on what we love to see in an engagement session, see our blog post here.

Editorials. Styled shoots are a beautiful way to enhance your creativity, and inspire brides and grooms to be and we love to share them on the blog. As there are more and more styled shoots submitted, please make sure you capture original and creative shots, which have distinct style, and that are showing achievable ideas.

Photo Requirements

We will need at least 80 images, 200 maximum.
Because readers are looking for interesting, original and fresh ideas for their days, please keep focused on couple, atmosphere, important moments, with many details.
Keep in mind that articles on the blog are designed according to the same principles of a magazine layout. In order to the images to be highlighted, photos of people, or full of details must be associated with more airy, clearer pictures in order to make the readability easier.
The consistency of colors and light are in my opinion essential and helps to sublimate the whole story, so please have that in mind when submitting your work.
Our preference is shared link to a PixieSet, PASS or Dropbox Gallery, or zip file. Please name your folder with your business name ( not LMAPN ) and send it at lmapn.publications@gmail.com.
Please send ALL images sized as a minimum of 2000 pixels in width with no watermark.
For more effective SEO, please name your files as follows: “wedding-normandie-greyphotography” rather than “BR34545.Jpg”.

Do you feature previously published work?

We systematically refuse to publish pictures that have been previously featured on another French wedding blog. Please tell us if your pictures were previously submitted / published on another website. In general, wedding blogs do not feature the same pictures twice, so please do not have your work submit on all blogs at the same time.

When will I hear if my submission has been accepted?

Whether your submission is successful or not, you will receive a response from us within 10 working days. If you have not heard back, please do feel free to follow it up with an email just in case we did not receive it in the first place. You will be advised of a scheduled date for the post so you can check it out and share the world !

Frequent asked questions

We only feature legally registered photographers. Images are obviously credited, and at least two links will drive readers to your website.
All published images are chosen by us, depending on the selection you have sent us. Thus, if you or the couple do not want to see some images published, please do not join them to your initial selection.
