Equally Wed

Equally Wed is highly selective on styled shoots. Styled shoots must be of real LGBTQ+ people, not straight models. 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.
