I believe another Bee posted the same thing earlyer, and I’m not sure if they have determined it is spam or not.

Just to be on the safe side don’t give them anything or click on anything.

i got it too – in her subject line, she also said “beautiful bridal party” so i assumed she found me because i posted a pic in the best bridal party pic thread today.

I went to the kaptur website to see what it was all about and it just looks like a wedding website, nothing crazy.  i decided to even test out what she was saying, but right away it asked me to log into facebook and then i had click that facebook app thing that says “allow” all my personal info to be seen. which of course i didn;t want to click on (same reason i don;t connect to any facebook apps).

so i wrote her back and asked aid is there any other way to upload pics other than facebook. and she replied with this:

 



Thanks so much for writing me. Yes, you can either add your photos via Flickr or upload them directly to Kaptur from your computer.

I can't wait to see your Kaptur go live. Please email me directly at [redacted by moderators]

anyway, its obvious she is writing this to everyone, but it also seems possible she is trying to get her website up and going and full of featured weddings. as in harmless - who knows. i really didn't see how else to upload photos other than thru facebook though, despite her reply. i am curious to see if and how this is determined to be real spam or not.

I got this message too. I submitted a support thing on it. I assume she probably saw my picture in the bridal party thread as well, since I got the PM right after I posted it.

Is it bad that I wanted to respond that I would never submit anything to a website with such bad spelling skills? lol

@zippylef: lol.

i was going to pass the website to my photographer to see if she would okay with this to begin with.  Like maybe it was too low end a website that she didn’t want her pics associated with or something – that’s when i decided to first check out the site to see if its even legit.

@kolsen206: it probably is against the rules!

I don’t think it’s spam!  It seems to me that they are just a site trying to get started in the wedding/photoblog business.  Relax, people!

I did it, and even though I connected through facebook, you don’t have to.  There is an option to upload photos manually (the facebook option was just way easier).
