Templates are one of my top time saving wedding and styled shoot submission tips. Keep this wedding submission template handy in your email drafts to plug your information into for your submissions each time. Some things to include: space for the couple’s names, date, wedding location, contact information, a brief overview of the day, link to photos and video, and the vendors list. You can also create templates for following up or sending the good news to the vendors and couple once a submission is picked up or published to save time!
Copy this wedding submission email template + paste into your drafts to make your life that much easier! Tweak as needed and even use this for other submissions like styled shoots, anniversary sessions, and more.
