I just had to share this with everyone… I stumbled upon an app today called Wedding Snap. You create an album and all of your guests with smart phones can download the app for free and upload their pictures from your wedding directly to the album!! So forget about the disposable camera stuff!
Here is a coupon code for 50% their Original Package – only $52!!! Enjoy!

Has anyone done this for their wedding? I like the idea, but it says it’s free…then it goes on to show package pricing. So I can download the app for free but if I want the pictures afterwards I have to pay $99? Is that how it works? Or is it that’s pay $99 and then my guests can download for free after that?
Its kind of contradicting. It’s not “free” if I have to pay $100. Just wondering if anyone’s done this and knows how it works?!

The app is free to download for the guests. To create an album for guests to upload their pictures is what costs. With the coupon code I gave it’s 50% the original package which makes it $52! I think that’s quite a steal for guest pictures! You get unlimited pictures and that beats the cost of buying disposable cameras and having them developed later.

mmm aren’t sites like snapfish and whatnot free though? If there are free sites out there I don’t see why people wouldn’t use those instead. Phones, digital cameras, ipods, etc can all be plugged into the computer for downloads (or be sent online via wifi or 3G). I’m pretty sure all you have to pay for is the prints. Not to mention Snapfish and Shutterfly do a lot of free giftcard promos towards photo albums/purchases.

I agree $52 seems a little expensive when there are free alternate options!

I just like the simplicity of it… How many people do you think will actually go home and plug their phone into their computer and send their pictures to the bride and groom? I think shutterfly and snapfish are great sites for prints but I don’t think they are nearly as convenient for guests as this is. I think it’s totally worth the $52.

Meh I think both have their plus sides. I think the guests that take photos and want us to have them will find a way to give them to us regardless of the platform we use. I guess I’m just stingy and hate the idea of shelling out another $52 for anything when I can get the same type of experience for free. If it’s an app people that have phones or ipods would have it. Those same people would either have 3G or wifi capability so it would be just as easy for them to send it to a website via their device.
I think the free $20 giftcards offered by stores like Target when registering plus free photo sharing is a better deal.

my guests wouldn’t all download an app just to send me photos– they’d just post the pics to facebook or instagram instead for free.

I like the flickr idea. Freeee, and doesn’t flickr have an unlimited amount of length as far as storing photos? Never really used it before but I know my Future Sister-In-Law loves flickr.

Wedding can get expensive quickly. If you are looking for a FREE alternative check out the original WeddingSnap. We were the first ones on the Apple App Store (back in May 2011) with this app. We made this app for our own wedding, and are hoping it is helpful for other couples! The service and app are both free.

I work with wedding snap and actually the reason why I started working for them was because I wasn’t getting my guests pictures and I went on a search for an alternative (yes, I created a flickr account and no, no one used it.) I met with a few people from wedding snap at a party and started harassing them about features I wanted to see and they’re started to implement them which is kind of exciting. BUT, the problems I faced were at my wedding is that yes, people were taking pictures and posting them to facebook and instagram. But I couldn’t upload the pictures from instagram and facebook compresses all the pictures so I couldn’t print them. Secondly, once I started using wedding snap and telling my friends to upload their pictures there, I had all of them uploading pictures. Some of which were amazing… like this one:
I also had friends sending me the ones they edited on their other apps (Wedding Snap is working on creating features like editing that will let guests do this too) (Instagram also compresses their pictures so unfortunately I couldn’t print this one even though it’s a great compilation!):
This one’s my favorite from my Wedding Snap album which was also uploaded by one of my friends:
