BCM is looking for your “Noteworthy Engagement” Shoots

Paving your way to happily ever after starts with a day of documenting your style through modern day engagement photos.  More and more couples are seeking alternative roads to express their love through themed, innovative, and artistic means. From a themed photo shoot inspired by your favorite rock star or celebrity to flaunting your love for one another in an exaggerated display of your hobbies or passions… engagement photos are becoming more art than obligation.

Was your engagement sitting inspired by a favorite rockstar?  Did you incorporate a favorite hobby or passion?  Did you see yourself traveling the world with your “soon-to-be” and opt for a shoot in an airplane hanger?  If so, we want to see them!
What we’re looking for: Engagement photos taken over the past 12 months that have never been published in another wedding magazine or blog. (They can be posted on your business blog).


  • Please mark your submission with your names, telephone number, email address, wedding date, along with your photographer’s contact information.
  • Create a folder and e-mail it through a variety of web based sources like DropBox.com, YouSendIt.com, etc. Direct them to our Publisher, Mira@bridalcouturemag.com.


Note: All images must be 300 dpi and you must be able to provide photographer credits as well as a brief description upon request.

Deadlines: June 15, 2014 Visit our Submissions page for more details. ->

It Took 4 Years And Trips To 26 Countries To Make This Proposal Video

On Sept 30, 2010, University of Montana students Jack Hyer and Rebecca Strellnauer went on their first date.

It went so well that afterwards, Hyer wrote in his travel journal, “I’m going to marry this girl eventually.”

Turns out, he was right.

Hyer spent the last four years building a proposal video (watch above), which features him lip-syncing The Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” from 26 countries around the world, including Cambodia, Israel, China, Greece, France and Turkey.

On the night of the couple’s college graduation, Hyer fooled Strellnauer into thinking that they were going to be watching his “graduation slideshow” — a ploy to get her to watch the proposal video he had made for her.

“I’ve been on many adventures. I’ve traveled on elephant, on camelback, hiked to the lowest point on the earth and I’ve gotten to see some of the highest,” he said right before pulling out the ring. “But the best adventure I’ve had is loving Becca.”

That, folks, is romance.

Hayden Panettiere Talks Proposal, Tries On Wedding Gowns

When Hayden Panettiere got engaged, it was “very sweet and simple and genuine” – and didn’t include any elaborate surprises or grand gestures.

“It wasn’t about being overwhelmed by fireworks or a mariachi band,” the Nashville star, 24, reveals in the April/May issue of Brides.

“I think it’s amazing when people do that, but I like that mine was simple and from the heart.”

Panettiere announced her engagement to boxer Wladimir Klitschko, 37, in October.hayden-panettiere-1-300 hayden-panettiere-300

Though she hasn’t started planning her nuptials, Brides gave the star a head start, dressing her in wedding gowns by designers like Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier for the cover shoot.

The bride-to-be admitted she’s nervous to actually wear a white dress on her big day, calling walking the red carpet and walking down the aisle “polar opposite” experiences.

“When eyes have been on me in the past, it’s been because of an event, where people see me as a persona, as Hayden Panettiere the actress,” she explained.

“For the aisle, you’re the purest, most emotionally stripped down version of yourself, sharing this raw moment with the most important people in your life. It seems very overwhelming!”

The couple hasn’t set a wedding date, and Klitschko’s native Ukraine remains embroiled in political conflict (his brother Vitali is a major player in the protests). But Panettiere, who spoke out to Ukrainians in December, says she’s proud of her future family’s homeland.

“It’s a beautiful country with beautiful people and a culture that I love,” she told the magazine. “With his brother running for president and the mass demonstrations [against the government aligning with Russia], it’s an incredible thing to be a part of.”
