What we LOVE!
- Weddings or engagement shoots that showcase RVA. Did your love story blossom in Richmond? We want to show off our beautiful city!
- Details, details and more details. Especially photos of personal touches. Along with florals, invitation suites, reception tables, cakes, sweet moments, etc.
- Good mix of vertical and horizontal images
What we don’t love:
- Only bride & groom portraits
- Poor photography quality
- NO detail shots of florals, paper goods, unique favors, etc.
- Entire photo albums – try to narrow it down to your 25-30 favorites. Full galleries will disqualify the submission.
- Weddings older than 6 months from the date you submit
