What makes a good submission?

Submission Guidelines:

+ Please send curated galleries with the appropriate passwords or download codes.
+ For weddings, we look for details, portraits of the couple and wedding party, and captured moments. Please do not include guest photos or photos of guests dancing.
+ Make sure you have the approval from the couple to submit. 
+ We do not feature videos on their own, however, it may be included with your submission to go along with photos.
+ SCB only accepts submissions from photographers, planners, and PR companies. If you are a bride, please ask your photographer to submit on your behalf.
+ All credits should be provided. If a submission lacks the appropriate credits, it will be denied.
+ SCB will feature 2-3 submissions a week.

How to make the most of your feature:
+ you will receive a tentative feature date. 95% of the time, this is the date your feature will go live. However, sometimes due to unforeseeable circumstances, a feature might have to be postponed. The date will always be updated on Matchology.
+ share the news with all the vendors once you are accepted so that they are aware of the upcoming feature!
