Our family vertical spotlights all the ins and outs of LGBTQ+ parenting, including photo sessions, personal essays and advice. If you're interested in telling your story, sharing professional photos or sharing tips, this is the place for you!

For photo submissions, please include all vendors and at least 100 words about your family's story in the cover letter section.

For essays and/or article submissions, please paste the entire article and your bio in the cover letter. In your bio, please also include all social media URLs and handles. 

Please also include your headshot photographer's name and URL in the cover letter. Then please attach a headshot in the files. You don't have to have a professional posed headshot. The photo only needs to be of high quality and show your face.

Thank you!
Equally Wed
Equally Wed is highly selective on styled shoots. We're looking for inspiration that our couples might not see in our Real Weddings section. We accept styled shoots more readily from our preferred vendors who are already part of the Equally Wed family. To support Equally Wed's efforts in providing the safe space for LGBTQ couples in which to plan the wedding of their dreams, click here to become a preferred vendor before submitting your work.

We require exclusivity for publishing your styled shoot for one year.
