The Benefits to an Online Wedding Gallery
Many Gloucestershire wedding photographers still offer USB sticks in their wedding photography packages and couples think that if they do not have a USB stick they are not getting good value for their money. But let me explain to you why I have decided not to give USB sticks anymore and how online wedding galleries are a luxury.
With clouds now dominating our lives, you can now download your wedding photographs directly to various cloud services such as Google Photos and Dropbox with a click of a button. You can access your wedding pictures from anywhere in the world without having to carry around a USB stick. Wedding pictures can be instantly downloaded to your devices while you lie on the sunbed during your honeymoon or you are standing in line waiting to have your pictures printed.
The options are endless.
Should you decide to have a destination wedding, or maybe you are not getting married in the Cotswolds, and I have photographed your wedding in the UK but we are miles apart. With your gallery access, you can have instant access to your pictures without waiting for the Royal Mail to deliver that stick.
USB sticks get lost, broken or let’s be honest – you may not even have a computer to plug them into anymore! Yes, they look pretty with a wedding photographer’s logo on the front, but they will not stand the test of time like an online gallery will. I offer an online wedding gallery to my clients for a minimum of 6 months, but I am never in a rush to take a wedding gallery down and will always email or get in in touch with clients to let them know their gallery will be coming down and to back up their wedding pictures.
I have galleries that are four years old on my online gallery and I have no intention of removing them until I need more space. It is recommended that once you receive your gallery to download it to your device. You have the option to download to clouds or to a USB of your choice. I will always have your pictures safe on a hard drive so should you need to access your wedding pictures years after your wedding, please just let me know and I can find them for you. I am not going to make this difficult!
You can create favourite lists of your favourite pictures directly in the gallery, giving you an opportunity to organise your wedding photography pictures however you want.
You can share the gallery with family and friends anywhere in the world and give them access to download or create their own favourite lists instantly. They don’t have to wait for you to show up at their house with the USB stick. Another great aspect of the online gallery is you can print your pictures directly through the gallery. They will arrive on your doorstep from a professional printing company in the UK within days. My printing company will print pictures and send them to anywhere in the world with quick service.
Online wedding galleries are safe and more user friendly.
