Submission Requirements


  • All photos but be taken by a professional. Burgh Brides readers want to see your images in all of their high resolution, JPG glory. Trust us, those pictures will really shine if they’re at least 1600 pixels wide/across with 72 dpi.
  • Please make sure your gallery includes at least 150 images for weddings, 75 for styled shoots, and 50 for engagement sessions and proposals.
  • Do not submit your session until you have received the full gallery from your photographer. Preview galleries or images cannot be considered.
  • Wedding and styled shoot galleries should be heavily focused on detail shots.
  • Photographers, to allow for the greatest SEO impact, please do not code image names.
  • While not a requirement, beautiful videos will make your submission stand out from the crowd!
  • No watermarks or photo collages. Your photos are happiest on the site and social media feeds without them.


  • If your submission is accepted, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire. Photographers, please make sure your couples are open to being featured and willing to participate before submitting their session.
  • Pittsburgh is home to countless swoon-worthy weddings. We receive a lot of wonderful images, so please allow us up to two weeks to review and respond to your submission.
  • We adore exclusive, fresh content. But, we will accept a fabulous session even if it has already been featured on another blog. However, it is your responsibility to ensure the other blog’s exclusivity guidelines are followed.
  • While we do accept content from non-advertising wedding vendors, priority consideration and scheduling is given to Burgh Brides Vendor Guide members.
  • We typically feature one wedding per week, as well as one engagement session and one styled shoot per month. Therefore, our publication time frame is currently at least nine months. We do not release publication dates in advance.
