Use These Tricks To Encourage Guests To Take More Photos

Professional Photo By: Tiffany Hofeldt Photography

Professional photographers at your wedding can provide you with images that feel like perfect records of your wedding experience. You can marvel at the way they captured your wedding ceremony, and their ability to preserve the fun of your wedding reception. With all that said, you can never have too many pictures from your wedding, and not all of the shots you collect have to come from your hired photographer. While your guests should keep their phones in their pockets during your ceremony, friends and family members can capture photos you love during your reception. If you want to have a wealth of images from your special day, a little advanced planning can help encourage your guests to take more photos throughout your wedding reception!

Set Up A Photo Booth For Everyone To Use

Wedding photo booths can encourage guests to photograph themselves at your wedding event with fun props and poses. Your “booth” can be a backdrop with items guests can hold, or you can arrange for the delivery and setup of a traditional booth with image strips! Asking guests to take two sets of photos in a booth, or asking that they share images online, can help you create a visual record of who was there on your special day.

Create And Share A Wedding Hashtag With Your Guests

For social media savvy guests, a wedding hashtag can be more than enough encouragement to take plenty of pictures! Think of something fun, memorable, and not too long, and make sure to share it with everyone. A hashtag can be more than just motivation for your guests. Keeping pictures under the same tag will make it easier for you to go through social media later and see what pictures of your wedding people have shared!

Place Disposable Cameras On Reception Tables

While most of us now rely on our phones for all of our picture-taking needs, disposable cameras can still lead to fun! Set up a table with cameras, or place a disposable camera at each reception table for people to use, and ask your guests to use up all of their allotted shots. When you collect the cameras at the end of the night and have the images developed, you can have a number of different perspectives on your wedding night.
