    If StyleMePretty isn’t your style, submit it to another blog that you prefer more. There are tons of blogs out there and StyleMePretty is not your only choice.

    My friend is a photographer and I know she gets many interested brides because she can say she was featured on SMP.  She’s been featured in many others, but most brides know SMP. It is considered the blog of all wedding blogs.  Even if your wedding gets on the local pages, you may still get more exposure than perhaps some of the smaller blogs.  Also now with Pinterest, your photos may be exposed even more. Just because they accepted you can choose to decline, but don’t feel like your wedding is any less than the ones that are ‘featured.’ Just make sure to select an interesting and click-worthy cover photo.

    @beemous:  I’m a bride in Chicago and I look at the Illinois SMP site daily!!  I look there more than the main page of SMP.  It’s more relevant for me.  I would LOVE to be published on the SMP Illinois page!!!

    I had no idea style me pretty was a big blog deal. I’ve never read it.

    SMP can be good for you if you’re a photographer, but it is heavily dependent on when your submission actually runs.  The last one we had they ran on labor day, and not many people saw it before it got buried by the next batch of submissions.

    I read the local blogs. I actually used to it to try and find a local photographer. Sadly, they were all well out of my budget.

    Do they limit you to where you can submit it once SMP has offered to post it? I know i’ve seen weddings on SMP that i’ve seen elsewhere. As far as you’re concerned, as a photographer, all press is good press, right? Getting your name on multiple blogs increases the chances of potential clients coming accross it.

    Our e-shoot was featured recently on SMP Massachusetts and as a bride, I was really excited!  A few people I know randomly stumbled across it, so it is a well known blog.  As a bride, I regularly visit the site.  I regularly check out other photogs websites because of posts I’ve seen on SMP, etc.  It’s a great way to showcase your work!  P.S. we picked our photographer based on a friend referral, but seeing her blog posts really helped seal the deal.  Anyway that you can get the public to link to your website is a great thing in my book.  It was also pretty cool as a bride to see our photos on SMP 🙂
