Two Bright Lights

January 23, 2015

Editors Badge

Something new I’m trying this year – something I’ve even added to my portrait and wedding workflows so I’m sure to not forget – is to submit to be published online. For years I’ve known about getting published and that Two Bright Lights was the best and easiest way to go about it. I don’t know why I haven’t tried it before now… probably something to do with laziness…

BUT I signed up a couple weeks ago and so far I’ve submitted two engagement sessions for 2015 brides and one’s already been picked up! I am very excited to see it featured next week and will let you guys know when it happens.

ANYWAY. Sessions aren’t difficult and time consuming to submit but weddings are a totally different story. Speaking of story – editors really like having the wedding story written by the bride when a wedding is submitted to be published SO…

Another task I’m adding to all wedding workflows is to ask if the bride would kindly write something up for their wedding and include as much detail as they can (vendors, feelings, decision making, etc) that way there’s more of a chance to have their wedding published! And I mean, who wouldn’t LOVE that?

As an incentive to write up a lovely story, I’m offering a FREE ANNIVERSARY SESSION to every couple whose wedding gets published! And since I don’t want to leave anyone out – this offer is also for 2014 wedding couples! If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please email me (rachael.houser@gmail.com) and I’ll give you more information on the specifics of what publishers and editors are looking for.

Let’s start submitting!
