But did they capture everything? In this day and age, chances are most of your guests will come equipped with their smartphones and digital cameras. There’s a way to bring together all of their pictures so you can see everything that they experienced.
Here are the top five sites that you can use to bring everyone’s pictures together:
Three easy and free steps for using this App. Just create the album, invite your guests to download the App to participate, and then it’s just the click of a button to start snapping those pictures! Photos get organized automatically based on the time they were taken, creating a timeline of the night. And guess what? It’s totally interactive too. Everyone can see what’s up. They can comment on pictures, share speech notes.
You can even download free customized instruction place cards for the reception tables, and guests can participate in the digital guestbook.
This site offers a free and simple way for your guests to upload their photos in one spot. WedPics has 3 simple steps to saving all those great pictures your guests took.

This site has more than just the picture sharing aspect. It’s also a place to share the details of your wedding: time, place, parking instructions, menu options, you can even share you and your fiancee’s story… so many ways to keep everyone in the loop! Not to mention if you’ve got a TV and Projector, you can totally share all these photos at the reception on the big screen! Guests can also use the App to request songs from the DJ! Be prepared though, this is one option that is not free. But you’ll see the difference between the price tag and the free Apps with the multitude of options that go into this site.

“Chris wanted to start their session out at the place where they had their first date, Penn bar in downtown Plymouth, I thought this was a pretty good idea! After that we just went around town a bit and then finished back where we started. You guys are adorable and I had a blast working with you. I can’t wait til your wedding- it will be here before you know it!!”

Tressa and Kyle’s love is a glowing ember. Soft and understated, it pulses throughout their lives, brightening the hearts of each person they meet. Time won’t fade it, and cold winds only make it more determined to grow stronger. These extraordinary people- world travelers, partners, friends- were married on a snowy day in Marquette, MI. Their wedding day was one of the warmest I’ve ever photographed. <3
