What Are the Best Ways to Share Wedding Pictures?


Before the advent of digital photography, couples used to have to wait for photographers to develop hard copies of wedding photos to share them with loved ones. However, you now have the opportunity to share your pictures with your guests within a few days of the wedding.

The first step is to hire a photographer who participates in an online photo showcasing site. With this photo-sharing method, your photographer can upload digital copies of your proofs onto a website account, customized just for you. Your guests may then browse through your pictures, email them, and even order their own copies directly from the photographer. You control who has access to your files with a password. This way, you can designate which photos are public and which ones are reserved for just the two of you to see.

Of course, an online gallery is no substitution for a professional album filled with hard copies. With an album from your photographer, you’ll be rewarded with touched-up photos and special effects that you’ve chosen. When your album arrives, invite family and friends over for a “viewing” party.
