You’ve opened the wedding gifts, sent the thank you cards, and are on your way to settling into your new home (and life) as a married couple. Just one thing remains: preserving and sharing your wedding photos.
This often seems like a daunting task, given that your wedding photographer will send you hundreds of photos (not counting the ones that you, your friends and your family took yourselves). But though it seems easier to just stuff them into one box, you know once you do that those photos will never see the light of day. Here’s how to organize them, and
share them, in a few easy clicks.
Create a folder in your computer specifically for your wedding photos. Divide it into subfolders: getting ready, church, reception, portrait shots (of you and your groom), and portrait shots with your entourage. Having them developed will be much easier now, as you can do them in batches, and arrange them in albums as you go along. You can also separate a separate folder for photos you want to have reprinted in special sizes, like a large portrait to hang in your bedroom.
Why you need an online album
You can also create virtual albums, which you can instantly share with family and friends. There are three benefits to creating these albums:
It’s a way of thanking your guests for coming to the wedding.
You share the big day with friends and family who were unable to attend the event.
You can create a special album for your wedding entourage, who are probably some of your dearest friends and relatives. By putting captions with quotes about love and friendship, the album can be a meaningful and touching gift.
You can incorporate the album into your personal blog or family website.
It is less costly and time-intensive as reprinting photos for family and friends.
The search for a good online album service
Usually, couples face the frustration of online album services that have too little little storage or expensive membership fees. After all, it’s natural that you want to include as many photos as you can, and as a young couple, you’d probably want to watch those expenses too! But these problems disappear with Weddingtrix.com’s online photo albums. The service is absolutely free, and best of all, has unlimited storage and bandwidth.
