Thank you so much for your interest in being featured on Tidewater and  Tulle! We love showcasing beautiful inspiration from weddings,  engagement sessions, and stylized shoots that took place in southeastern Virginia, Richmond area, and the Outer Banks. We love a balance of  details and those special captured moments in our submissions, and we  welcome all simply edited professional photography styles that exemplify  the diversity in our region.


Tidewater and Tulle is a semi-exclusive online wedding publication. We generally do not accept submissions that have been featured previously or awaiting to be published on another wedding blog or magazine (with exception to your own personal blog). However in continued effort to better represent the diversity in our region, we will always make an exception to review previously-published submissions that share a BIPOC, LGBTQ+, or AAPI couple and their love story. (Please see our Statement of Love, Action, and Solidarity for more information.) When submitting, please indicate where and when it has already been published.


 If you would like to resubmit your feature to another wedding publication  after being published on Tidewater and Tulle, we ask that you wait two  (2) months before submitting elsewhere and let the second publication  know that it was first featured here on Tidewater and Tulle as industry  courtesy and standard.


 To avoid confusion, we only accept submissions from  photographers/filmmakers or their wedding PR representatives. If you are  a vendor or bride, please ask the photographer to submit. If the  photographer/filmmaker is unavailable for any reason, wedding vendors  may email chelsea (at) tidewaterandtulle (dot) com for a non-photographer/vendor submission form (** an online limited release form from the photographer will be required).


Want to support Tidewater and Tulle at no cost to you? Purchase anything on Etsy or Amazon through our affiliated links. We earn a small commission for any sale we bring over to the marketplaces! This helps keep our content free and available to all, and most importantly, allows us to publish local weddings and promote wedding vendors. Wedding blogs are constantly closing down due to the ever-changing industry, so we are very grateful that our audience has always supported us in this tiny, but impactful way since 2013!
