How to submit...
Take your time & read the guidelines carefully.
We are all about community and that is why we are changing things up to make sure that your work is front and center of the images that we share. From this point, we will not only feature photos randomly from well-known photographers, but rather exclusively choose images captured by photographers of our community. Our focus is to put a spotlight on photos that truly embody the intimate connection between couples and give our members the opportunity to broaden their visibility and reach within the photography community.

All you have to do is read the guidelines carefully before submitting. Please bear in mind that since we are made up of a very small team, we will not be able to reply to the submissions. Nevertheless, we guarantee that we will review every single image, and the selected ones will go live within the upcoming month. Usually, your email will go through without a confirmation or so. Please don't get discouraged if we don't pick your image(s). Be sure to continue taking pictures! You are welcome to make another submission in the future anytime.

Step-by-step Guide
1. What kind of photos?
2. Requirements
3. Expectations
4. Terms and Conditions

In order to increase your chances of getting featured, pay attention to the following points: Your style of photography veers away from conventional poses – instead it showcases natural and authentic moments. Send us images that you are really proud of, not your average work. We are on the look out for professional, natural and unposed images of couples in love or weddings.   All images must be jpegs sized at least 1600 px WIDE, without watermarks. We will not accept collages.   Please only send one submission per week.

Send us up to 20 photos of one shoot, not more. Only send us your photos via DropBox Link or Wetransfer using the form below. We only accept submissions by professional photographers.

We are a small business and we cannot respond to all of you beautiful people creating beautiful work. So if we do not use your photos, bring your head back up and keep taking photos. As we get a lot of submissions, we just can not respond to everyone. Hope you understand!

By submitting one or more photos, you accept the following conditions.

§ 1 Participation Submission of photos
