Has anyone used Wedding Party – it’s an app like wedding snap, but it is free. The same concept, create an album, guests add photos and they can be viewed online.they also have free printables you can download to give to your guests.

WeddingSnap also lets guests upload videos now – A HUGE help if you want videos but don’t want to pay for a videographer!

I have used Photago.com and it works!. It is great to get all photos from the guest in one place.

I signed up for Wedding Snap and hopefully our guests will use it at our wedding in a month.  I’m happy to report back later!  They were running a promo so we got the essentials package for $103.  They sent us adorable cards (with one of our engagement photos on it) that contain all the info, which we’ll put in our hotel welcome bags and give out at our rehearsal dinner.  We’re also going to email the link to our friends the week before.  I hope some people use it.  Apparently they refund your money if you don’t get at least 100 photos in your album so I figure it’s worth a try!

We used weddingsnap for our wedding in April and it was a lot of fun!  I’d recommend it.  We signed up when the “essentials” package was on promo for $103.  We sent an email to our friends and family with some info and the link to download the free phone app, and we enclosed the little info cards in our out-of-town welcome bags. 

The app puts the photo on both the user’s phone and on the couple’s private website for all registered users to see.  Then any registered user can download print-quality photos from other users via the website.  The app has various options for the photos, like regular, black/white, vintage, sepia, etc.  It also allows you to capture video.

Not a whole lot of people used it, but we got around 225 candid photos by the end of the weekend, from the rehearsal dinner, wedding, and brunch.  It was a lot of fun to see how our guests experienced the wedding!  I certainly wouldn’t use it in place of a photographer.  But it’s a fun supplement if you want candids.  I’d just suggest being assertive about encouraging your guests to use it.  Hope this helps anyone who is considering it!

Whatever happened to the usual “Aww thanks for taking awesome pictures! Would you mind texting/bumping them to me?? Thankss!”

I mean I’m all for an organized folder, but I thought that’s what texting was about…and it’s free.

@bookworm88:  …and this. Most of my guests would probably feel like I’m giving them something to do on our wedding rather than just enjoy. Plus most people want to share the pictures they took with the bride and groom anyway.

Op, not saying this is a horrible idea – but considering how much money photogs are, I really don’t want to pay to get my friends’ iPhone pictures. They can send them to me if they wish.

@Mimoza: I certainly understand where you’re coming from.  The point I would add is that while many people will text/email photos to you, or will post them on Facebook or Instagram, many if not most of those photos will be low resolution and not print quality.  So if you’re hoping to have high resolution candids from your friends, you’ll have to follow up with all of them to request high resolution versions.  Plus, in my experience, people often say they’ll email/text you pics, and then don’t.  Or they simply don’t share their candids with the bride and groom if the bride and groom aren’t in them.  One of the most fun parts of the wedding app was seeing the pics that my friends and family took of one another having fun! 

 

From my perspective, a wedding photo app just made it easier for me and my guests by allowing them to use their phones, and by collecting everyone’s photos on one website, so that anyone who installed the app (for free) had access to all the photos taken by themselves and everyone else.  So it was worth $100 to me, but I can certainly understand if others prefer to rely on guests to share their candids.

@spring-bride:  Oh I agree. People forget & life gets in the way and whatnot. But isn’t there a completely free version? So it’s win-win? ๐Ÿ˜›

I signed up for Capsule Cam. Its basically sponsored by the knot. And if you have a website through them and connect your capsule, then it shows up on your wedding website as well. I am going to use it for my engagement party and see how it goes. Capsule Cam is also free.
