Ideas for How to Use Wedding Cameras
Taking photos at weddings allows brides, grooms and their guests alike to remember the wonderful time they had together. Many couples today use cameras more at their wedding than in the past. It is easier to develop photos or keep digital copies of your favourites. Whether you rely on a professional to photograph your event or a trusted family member to take photos, it is fun to incorporate cameras with your wedding.
One way to incorporate disposable wedding cameras is to allow your guests to take photos with disposable cameras you provide at the reception. You can find wedding cameras at many retail stores. Web sites like Pink Frosting, Australia’s #1 wedding and party shop, can provide you wedding cameras that match your colours palette, which is an added aesthetic bonus.
Place a camera on every few tables and attach a note to encourage guest to take photos. You can also place the cameras at a central table for guests to use during the night to capture special memories. Once they are finished with the camera, they can return it to a table or pass along to another guest.
Do you have young guests at your event? Disposable cameras may be just the ticket! Encourage children to take photos of the reception so you can get their perspective on the event. When you develop the photos, you may find a cute photo of them their parents will love or an interesting angle of you cutting the cake, dancing to your first song, or laughing with guests.
To engage guests with your wedding cameras, place a note at each table about the cameras and their purpose. Ask the DJ or master of ceremonies to encourage guests through an announcement that they can take photos with the cameras, but must leave them when the night has ended. If you do not plan ahead, guests may take the cameras home thinking they are party favours.
Another simple way to encourage guests to take photos is setting up an online account through sites like Snapfish. For some couples, buying and developing disposable cameras can get expensive, and many guests bring digital cameras to the wedding and reception. The idea of disposable cameras may not appeal to them. To capture moments from your guests’ point of view, give them the link to your account so they can upload photos or ask them to email you the photos when they return home.
Once you have developed your photos from the wedding cameras, you can either select to print your favourites or place them on a CD. Using the CD option is often easier for couples, as it allows them to be more selective about which photos they keep. Use photos of guests to send thank you cards. This allows them to receive a fun photo they can cherish and feel grateful they came to your wedding. Do make sure you send the correct guests the right photos, however - it would be embarrassing to find out the wrong photo was sent to a guest!
