I’ve seen posts from several years ago on this, but I can’t find anything recent: are any of you planning to collect wedding photos from your guests? If so, how? In talking to some of my friends, they relied on people to post photos on Facebook. However, not all of our guests have facebook accounts and I believe facebook has photo file size restrictions.
Are any of you setting up some sort of mechanism to collect photos from your guests?

We were already including a small card in our TY’s with the links to our pro pic online gallery and wedding website (where we uploaded all of our photo booth pics). We just added a section to the bottom of that asking for our guests to email us with any pictures that they happened to take. We didn’t get too many but a few guests sent us what they had.

Flickr, with the site & password printed on the back of the favor tag.

I have had the same question as our wedding is in December and I don’t want to pay thousands of dollars for something this simple. Facebook is not my favourite place to put event pics.
I looked WeddingSnap and AlbumPlus but its insanely expensive, priced at $150+ with all kinds of limitations. My fiance and I are leaning towards PicsAshare (www.picsashare.com). We tried them at a party and it worked very well for us. It cost us only 99cents, yes thats right, only 99 cents. We were skeptical since it was so cheap but was very smooth. That will be my recomendation. Worth a try.

I set up a site on flickr and put the username and password on cards to be placed around the reception. I also might get more printed and put them in the thankyou cards if not too many guests participate.

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was a cute idea:

Kaptur is another startup website that seems geared towards wedding and event photo-sharing. Has anyone used it?

I’ve just been snagging them off facebook. We didn’t set up a flickr site or anything.

We are using an app for IPhone and Android phones. It is called wedding snap. We are asking guests to download the free app, which automatically feeds their pics taken with the app into our online album. There is a fee for you to have the album, but the actual app is free for all your guests. We have instructions on our wedding website, we will also have cards on the table and it will be announced in the rehearsal dinner and by the DJ on the night of the wedding.

we’re planning on doing something similar to what deevine1217 posted. putting cards with our e-mail addresses (or flickr account info if we decide to go that route) on the tables and asking our guests to pass on their pics. i’ll also snag them off of facebook.

I’ve got I Spy games that I’m putting on our cocktail tables with disposable cameras, that hopefully people will leave behind so we can develop them. Also asking those wtih digital cameras to play along.
We are putting on business cards next to our guest book that say:
Thank you for sharing in our special day
If you’ve taken some pictures, please send them our way
Got the business cards on Vistaprint for just a few dollars.

Yes, only from 2 people though. I uploaded the pics off my mom’s camera to my computer, then I got his sister’s pics off facebook.

I created a shutterfly share site, and also made it our wedding site. That way everything is in the same place, they get used to going there. They can allso email them there as well.

A couple of my friends just uploaded their pics to Snapfish and I was able to print them myself – either through Snapfish or Walgreens. You can also now download full size pictures from Snapfish onto your computer. Another friend of mine just took pictures on her iPhone and let me download them onto my computer – I didn’t do anything formal. I think most people who take pictures genuinely want you to have the pics sincs it’s your wedding and all – I definitely didn’t ask the 2 who uploaded to snapfish to do so, but they did and I was thankful for it.
I saw the thing on pinterest that someone else posted and thought about it, but i figured most people wouldn’t pay attention or they’d lose the info or just forget about it anyway.

My friend got married a couple of weeks ago and they used http://www.photago.com . This worked very well! They started an album that alla guest could upload alla photos both form their smart phone or from the web browser. They also hade specific albums for the bachelor party.
They had a tv screen on the wedding party with a slide show. So the photos that got uploaded from the iPhone app during the party you could see there. Really cool!
But I think photago was a very simple and smart solution!
