Local Love
Weddings of the Month
Look Who's Engaged! & Look Who Got Married!
Submission Reminders

Baltimore Bride is looking for exceptional photography of diverse local weddings in Baltimore, Central MD and the Eastern Shore (no DC, Prince George's or Montgomery county weddings). This is your opportunity to showcase your talent to 25,000 brides-to-be, both in-print and online. Selections for print publications will occur within 2-3 weeks of the submission deadlines listed below. Photographers and the happy couple will be notified if selected. Weddings of the Month will be selected throughout the year.

To submit your wedding, please use the Wedding Submission Form below.


Local Love

We look for a comprehensive collection of images that tell the entire wedding story—candids and posed shots, as well as details. Weddings chosen for publication may also be considered for the magazine cover.

WHAT TO SUBMIT aka The Do's and Don'ts of Submissions

Do submit via the Wedding Submission Form below.
Don't email your submission.
To be considered, all submissions must be submitted via the online Wedding Submission Form below. If an email is required to share files or downloadable galleries please use: lstaci@baltimoremagazine.net.

Do submit 75-150 images from your wedding.
Don't submit the entire wedding.
We do not need to see 800 images from your wedding to see how lovely it was. Please only submit 75-150 high-resolution non-watermarked images per wedding. Don't worry, if we think we need more, we'll ask! Please include all aspects of the wedding: getting ready, portraits, ceremony, reception, and details. Especially the details.

Do submit links to file sharing or image galleries.
Don't submit an online gallery or blog post.
Dropbox, Hightail, or other file sharing programs are preferred. Please share the downloadable link versus the folder. Any contents in a 'shared' folder in Dropbox will be copied and deleted for space. If you are submitting images through PASS or other online client galleries, it must include a folder of highlights or favorites for submission. Images must be downloadable. Don't forget to include any PINs or necessary passwords.

Do submit high resolution ready-to-print images that can be downloaded.
Don't submit lo-res, watermarked images, or images that can only be viewed online.
We won't be able to choose your wedding if we can't download it. And we can't publish your wedding if the photographs are low resolution or watermarked in any way.
