I did this for my first wedding in 2007 and I would say 95% of the pictures were garbage. I would instead ask guests after the wedding to send you any pictures they took and you can then print the ones you want for your candid album. Are you having a photographer? My photographer got a lot of really great candids as well.

I looked up the prices and it looks like you can get 2 disposable cameras for $13 and about $25 to get them both developed so it wouldn’t be a huge a cost if you really want to do it. Sorry I don’t have any ideas on how to do this as we just had one on each table (which was definitely overkill) Good luck!

futremrswhite17 :  I feel like this is pretty outdated, but if it’s what you want, then I would put about 5 out in different areas with little signs like:

Or if you want an updated sort of version, you can have selfie sticks and ask people to tag them or send them to you

You can ask guest to send you photos. Maybe even setup a Dropbox for them.

i did this for my bat mitzvah (20+ years ago), before cell phones, and it was great.  now with cell phones, i probably wouln’t pick up the disposable to take pictures.  either assign a few people to use them, or skip them.

they have app, wedpics is one. where everyone can upload their cellphone pics for you to see.
