Picture this: You’ve just attended the most beautiful wedding of the season and are making your way to the venue where the reception will take place. The flowers are stunning, the music is superb, and don’t even get me started on the food and bar spreads. As you locate your name card, perfectly scripted in calligraphy, you see a scattering of tacky, plastic-and-cardboard disposable cameras. Yuck.
Palo Alto-based startup Wedding Snap wants to remove all those cameras, replacing them with a more modern way to capture the special moments of your big day. Wedding Snap is a photo sharing website, complete with an iPhone and Android app, that gathers all the pictures your guests take at your wedding into one online album. No more searching through Facebook for shots you may have missed or begging your guests to send their cameras and photos to you.
Instead of providing cameras, step into the 21st century, and provide a way to get the pictures your guests are already taking. When you sign up for Wedding Snap, your guests can download the app for free and access the online album with a code. For guests without smartphones, Wedding Snap lets users upload their pictures from a computer after the wedding.
Brides everywhere are praising Wedding Snap for helping at least one part of their wedding day be a little less hectic. According to the co-founders:
Last week, one bride, Jessica called our number and mentioned why they have chosen Wedding Snap – because her dad can use it as well. Almost every couple of days, we hear the same story again.
Too bad Wedding Snap wasn’t around when I got married. I feel like I may have missed a few pictures, taken from my family and friends’ perspectives, that I would love to have had. Don’t let that happen to you – check out Wedding Snap, which was featured at our San Francisco Mixer and Startup Showcase this week.
