As your special day comes to an end, one of the most important things you’ll have left is your wedding photos and videos. These captured moments will bring back memories of the joyous occasion for years to come, making it crucial to store them safely. At Bells & Whistles Photography, we want to ensure that our clients can cherish their wedding memories forever. Here are the best ways to store your wedding photos and videos after you’ve received them:
- Save them to your computer and in an external hard drive. Once you’ve received your wedding photos and videos, the first thing you should do is save them to your computer. Create a dedicated folder on your desktop or laptop and store all the photos and videos in it. It’s also a good idea to ask immediate family to do the same so many backups exist. If you only store them in one place, you risk losing them if that device fails. So, it’s always a good idea to make a backup of your photos and videos by saving them to an external hard drive.
- Store them on the Cloud. Services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud are a fantastic option for digital storage.When you save your wedding photos and videos to the cloud, they are stored on remote servers that are managed and maintained by the service provider. This means you can access them from anywhere, on any device, as long as you have an internet connection. You can also easily share your photos and videos with family and friends by sending them a link to the cloud storage folder.
- Print your photos. While digital storage is convenient, there’s nothing quite like having physical copies of your wedding photos. Choose the best ones and print them out, either in a photo album or by creating wall art. This way, you can enjoy your wedding memories anytime you like, and it also ensures they are preserved for generations to come. With Bells & Whistles you are free to print your photos anywhere you’d like. Some studios sell print licenses or force you to buy prints. However, if you do would like help with prints we would be happy to assist.
- Share with Family and Friends. Sharing your wedding photos and videos with family and friends is a great way to keep the memories alive. You can share them through social media, email, or even by creating a private online gallery. This way, your loved ones can enjoy your wedding memories, too.
