At Styled & Curated, we’re here to inspire, make the styled shoot process easier, provide resources and community along with educational opportunities. We publish styled shoot content to empower creatives and to celebrate love—inclusive of all genders, cultures, religions, and styles. While doing this we are bringing vendors together, supporting one another and pushing the limits creatively.

Our primary focus is to showcase styled weddings, elopements, engagements and proposals. We also feature some lifestyle shoots.
We aim to showcase shoots that will inspire a diverse audience with a range of genders, races, religions, and sexualities. When we review editorial submissions we are looking for the following:
Unique aspects. Avoid submitting something we’ve already featured or you’ve already seen on our blog
Unique styles. Show us what makes this shoot special. Unique venues + ceremonies, over-the-top floral installations, wedding fashion, gorgeous locations - we love sharing NEW ideas!
Details, details, details. Details tell the story so beautifully. The more the merrier. Think vintage car, flat lays with invitation suite, unique angles of dress or hair, dessert tables, floral arrangements, table settings, etc
Impressive photography. Images should be properly lit, consistently processed, in focus unless meant to have motion blur, and meet the quality standard of other images on our site
Follow the instructions below to prep your styled shoot for publication consideration. Then, submit them below.
Your Company Name / Your Name / Date and Location of the Event
The more urls we can get, the better.
Social Handles for Everyone Involved: makes promoting your business on social media that much easier.
80-150 images that you feel best highlight the wedding. We need individual images at least 3200 pixels wide. Vertical imagery is best, with about 10% horizontal.

Please list ALL applicable vendors. We must have a photography credit to consider a wedding for publication. If a vendor is not credited up front, we will be unable to go back and add the credit. Save us the time in hunting down the right vendor.
If you have access to the video, it will always make the shoot much stronger online. We like videos that are under 3 minutes, ideally in the 2 minute time frame. To submit a wedding with a video, please include both a link to a photo gallery and a Vimeo/YouTube link to the film in your submission.
We encourage all creatives to share their work on their blogs. Posting images to your business’ blog does not hurt your chances of publication.
We receive a large volume of submissions each week. As a result, we cannot personally reply to them all. We’ll get back to you within 30 business days if your submission will fit into our featured schedule.
Once a submission is accepted, we must receive all the necessary materials within three months. If we don’t, we can’t move forward with the feature. If you have not heard from our team with a publication date for your feature, we have not received all materials.
Please include up to 100-150 photos. Photos should be .jpg, 3200px wide, sRGB color space, and without watermarks.
Only share single images, we will not accept diptychs or collages.
Include a link to a service like Pixieset, Pic-Time, etc.
Don't submit a WeTransfer download link.
If you are sending a Pic-Time gallery, please send us the shared link instead of sharing the gallery with an email.
Please note: download links are not accepted. If your submission includes a download link it will be removed from consideration.
If you are submitting a video, please enter a Vimeo link. We do not accept stand-alone video submissions, so your video must be accompanied by an image gallery to be considered.
