Why should I use Share Your Photos?
Share Your Photos solves the problem of getting all of your favorite Event photos from your friends, family, and Guests by gathering them in one place where everyone has access. It makes it easy to browse your Event photos and save, share, or create custom gifts with the photos you love. Gone are the days of having to track a friend down and have them send you the photos you want. Now you can just log into your Share Your Photos account and download them yourself.
How do I begin using Share Your Photos?
Are you an Event Host, or a Guest?
Event Hosts can download the Share Your Photos app to their smartphone and create an account. From there they can start creating an Event and sending out invites!
Guests download the app and then join an Event by using the link an Event Host sent to them or by searching for their Event.
From here, anyone in the Event can start uploading their photos, viewing other Event photos, saving to their own device, or creating custom gifts and keepsakes.
How do I let my Guests know to use Share Your Photos at my Event?
We provide a few ways to let your Guests know to join your Event. You can send invites straight from the app via e-mail and text message so your friends can easily download the app. You can also share your Event Name for your Guests to add themselves to your Event. We highly recommend passing along this info a few days/hours before the Event so everyone is ready to snap, save and share.

How is this different than social media?
Share Your Photos is more private than social media- only the people you choose can see your photos. You also have the ability to download photos and videos directly to your device, which you cannot do as easily (or at all) on some social media sites.
Can my Event hashtag and Share Your Photos Event Name be the same?
Since Guests tend to only post a few select images on social media, you can miss out on some really great pictures. If you ask Guests to download the Share Your Photos app and give them the Event Name, you can access all of the photos afterward. We guarantee you’ll find a bunch of framers in there that you wouldn’t have seen otherwise! We love hashtags and posting to Instagram too and suggest you make your Event Name and your unique hashtag the same to keep it simple for Guests.
Can you use this on both iPhone and Android?
Share Your Photos is available on iPhone (iOS) and Android. You can also use shareyourphotos.com on your MAC/PC. And even someone who has a flip phone or is using a digital camera can log onto our website afterward to upload their photos and view the rest.
Are the photos private or public?
It’s up to you! All Events are set to Private as the default. With Private Events, only Guests with the custom PIN you’ve created can join the Event.
How much does Share Your Photos cost?
It’s FREE! As long as you have a minimum of 3 Guests (not including yourself, the Host), your photos will be available indefinitely. Plus, there’s never any limit to how many photos or Events you can share!
Do I need to let my photographer know about Share Your Photos?
You can, but you don’t have to. We hope the images you get from your photographer will be gorgeous, but Share Your Photos is for those candid shots that your Guests take throughout the night.
Can I see photos from the Event even if I don’t have any of my own to share?
Of course! Download the app or sign up online, join the Event and go ahead and relive the memories!
Can I access photos in an expired Event?
No, once an Event has expired, you can no longer interact with the photos shared. If you want to regain access to your expired Event, you do have to invite enough Guests to reach the 4 member minimum.
