Flowers will eventually wilt and cakes will go bad. But something from your wedding that you can cherish for all of eternity is photos. So, what steps can you can take to capture more photos from your wedding?
Rent a Photo Booth
Photo booths aren’t just for kids; adults can have fun with them, too. There are countless companies out there that specialize in photo booth rentals, allowing couples to incorporate them into their wedding. You can even book a photo book rental from SGM Events. After the ceremony is over, guests can head over to the photo booth, offering a fresh new perspective of your big day.
You can even go one step further by including props like fake mustaches, sunglasses and hats for your photo booth. While your wedding photographer will capture the “serious” moments from your wedding, a prop-filled photo booth such as this catches the more laid-back moments.
Disposable Camera Favors
Of course, you can also capture more photos from your wedding by handing out disposable cameras to guests as favors. Not only will this capture more moments from your wedding, but it also serves as a fun activity for the reception. Guests can use their disposable cameras to snap photos of the venue, food, decorations, dances and more.
And don’t worry about the cost of disposable cameras. If you’re planning a large wedding with 100+ guests, simply place one camera on each table at your reception. This will arguably cost less than most other wedding favors.
Ask Guests to Share Photos on Social Media
Consider asking guests to take photos of your wedding and share them on social media. Sure, some guests will take photos anyway, but asking them to share their photos on social media using a specific #hashtag will help you find them later. You can ask guests either in person, over the phone, or in your wedding invitations. Facebook offers the perfect platform on which to share wedding photos. Guests can “tag” you and your newlywed spouse in their photos.
Wedding Photo App
Last but not least, consider downloading and using a wedding photo app like WedPics. Available for Android and Apple mobile devices, this free-to-use app makes sharing wedding photos a breeze. Unlike social media #hashtags, it’s completely private, meaning only authorized users can see your wedding photos.
WedPics is just one of many wedding photo apps. Check out this article published by BridalGuide for a list of similar apps.
