We Instagram’d

Weirdly enough, photography wasn’t really important for us. In fact, we only met once, for an hour, two days before our wedding with our friendor photographer, ooops! And it was his first wedding! We just wanted a record – photos that showed what happened, how happy we were and the people we were with. Photos with our guests were the most important,and of that, we got plenty! I hope we don’t regret this in the future (you know? not handing him a list with must have shots or artsy angles), but for now, we are really happy with what we got, and we’ve had a great time showing them to our friends and family. They all love reliving those moments!

But still, I wanted to see some pics from the point of view of our guests. That is why I created some Instagram cards. We put them on the tables of the younger guests with the instruction to use an specific hashtag.


Then, I created an IFTTT account. Whenever someone uploaded a photo with that hashtag, it would turn up on a private facebook group that I created, where only Mr. WV and I are members. This way the photos are super accessible for both of us to show around.

Here are some of my favorite guest photos:

I definitely recommend using social networks and hashtags. We had a great time the morning after the wedding looking at all those pics. In the end we have more than a 100 extra photos from the point of view of our guests, and I love each and everyone of them. So if you are on the fence, I would say do it! Take advantage of living in the 21st century! 🙂
