Hey There!

If you are a photographer, wedding vendor, or even a recently married individual that would like to be featured on Clever Wedding Ideas, I would love to hear from you!

What I'm looking to feature are real weddings, engagement shoots, and styled theme shoots that are undeniably non-traditional with stories that highlight a couple's unique personalities and interests.  Alternative style, offbeat, boho, vintage, whimsical, colorful, cultural, unique locations, etc. We love to see couples in love who get married their own way and on their own terms. 

There are a few different options available to submit a feature to us. Please see our guidelines below before submitting. 


(please have this information available prior to submission)

  • Permission to be featured from the photographer and the couple is imperative.  Please get permission from all parties before submitting a wedding or photo shoot.
  • ALL images must be 650 pixels wide.
  • Couple's name, wedding date and location.
  • A list of any vendors used for your event with website links if applicable.  I'd like to credit everyone involved for two reasons.  One, so the vendor gets recognized for their work.  And two, if a potential bride is interested in replicating the look or style of the wedding they know who to contact in order to achieve that.  

   Wedding Submissions

  • 75-100 photos
  • Please have the couple fill out the following questionnaire:
  1. How would you describe your wedding theme?
  2. How did the two of you meet? (Any details of the courtship would be appreciated.  It's okay to gush :))
  3. Tell me about the wedding dress.  Why did you pick the style?  Was it easy to choose?
  4. What was unique about your ceremony?
  5. Describe the reception and any elements that made it one of a kind. (Things like guestbook, cake, favors, flowers, décor, etc.)  Be sure to add in any DIY projects that were part of the day.
  6. What was your favorite part of the wedding?

   Engagement Shoots

  • 40-60 photos
  • Please have the couple fill out the following questionnaire:
  1. How did the two of you meet? (Don't be afraid to share all the juicy details)
  2. Where did the engagement shoot take place? Does it have any significance to your relationship?
  3. How did he/she propose?
  4. Tell me about the upcoming wedding. Where and how do you plan on getting married?

   Styled Photo Shoots or Trash the Dress Sessions

  • 75-100 photos
  • For styled shoots and trash the dress sessions I ask for a summary or story and any details describing the idea behind the shoot or a few anecdotes from the day. 

Please note:  I'm looking for unique photos and ideas.  All submissions are subject to my approval first and of course I will let you know either way if I decide to feature your submissions or not.
