I’m looking for ways to get photos from my guests after the wedding. I was thinking of doing a download station, where guests upload their photos to a laptop on their way out of the reception, but I don’t want to saddle someone with having to stand with the laptop at the end of the night.
After some google searching I found Olapic. You create a page for your wedding, and upload your guest’s e-mail addresses. Then they e-mail your guests before the wedding to remind them to bring their cameras.
Then, after the wedding they remind the guests to visit your site and upload their photos.
I’m thinking this might be perfect for our wedding (FI’s family loves taking pictures), and I was just wondering if anyone’s tried it out? Was your experience good or bad?

I haven’t heard of that before, but I’ll check it out.
I was planning on using shutterfly. I already set up a page that is password protected. I’m gonig to have little cards to give all the guests at the reception (some of the Bees have done the same) so they have the web address and password to take home with them.

There was this cool little gadget that one of the bees posted that guests could just plug in their memory cards and it would copy all the files from the last 8 hours or so… it was awesome! Just had to make sure they know it was 8 hours so there weren’t any dirty pictures on there from pre-partying!

I saw it in a wedding I recently attended, and I loved the idea.
In this wedding, one of the cousins of the bride was giving little cards with the address to all the guests that were bringing cameras and I found that really cool. I think that these are the cards they will send you: http://us.moo.com/en/products/minicards.php
I created a free account right after this wedding, and after playing a little bit with it, I’m pretty sure that I’ll use it. My friend got almost 1000 pics.
Oh, and all the guests are allowed to download all the pictures that the bride makes public. (for free). I liked that too…

I have a couple of friends who used Olapic and loved it! People liked it because they feel they can collaborate with the wedding… And it’s very easy to use!
I am planning to use it in my wedding, this summer in Barcelona.
