6 Ways to Share Your Wedding Photos Online
Even if you hired a professional photographer to capture the best moments of your wedding, you’ll want to see the photos taken by your family and friends. To put all of your images on display for your loved ones, here are some tips for sharing your wedding photos online.
Communication is one of the first steps in organizing your wedding. Thanks to today’s technology, there are many options for communicating with your guests and family to keep them informed on the your wedding plans and breaking news. The most effective tools are found on the Internet – whether you have a blog, website, Facebook or Twitter, uploading wedding photos with these online platforms is the simplest way to share.
1. Wedding Website
To tell your love story and chronicle all the schedules and events of your wedding, start a wedding website. Zankyou allows you to create a free website that you can customize and design to the style of your wedding. By creating a gallery, you can share your favorite wedding photos and perhaps publish the story behind the images that touched you the most. You can also ask your guests to upload their own photos to create the most comprehensive wedding album of all!
This popular social network allows you to create folders with up to 200 photos each, so you can create several folders with pictures of your wedding – either in your personal account or a special page for the celebration. Or you can create an event allowing your guests to share the wedding photos. (You can also make separate groups in case of any compromising photos.) Ask your friends to make sure they “tag” themselves and other guests so everyone can get a look-see.
This social network is ideal for sending notices to your guests and providing them with up-to-the-minute details of your wedding. It’s best to create “hashtags” to identify your event, for example #SarahJohnWedding, so it’s easier to find the fresh photo uploads.
4. Google +
This is a social network that is also great for sharing photos, not only because you have groups that you can divide into circles and then share documents, but also because you can publish photos organized under different folders.
5. Flickr and Picasa
These photo storage sites are ideal if you just want a simple database of your wedding photos. This is a very practical way of sharing images and you can post the file link on your wedding website, social networks or send it by email.
6. Disposable Cameras
This option is great if you’re not too familiar with technology, or want to have more personal photos with a “retro” touch. Just put disposable cameras on each table so your guests take photos of the event or of themselves. Later you can develop them and add them to your digital or traditional wedding photo album.
