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.
  • 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.
  • Our publication time frame is currently at least eight months. At this time, we do not release publication dates in advance.
