How to Share Your Wedding Photographs with Guests


Some of the fun of being a part of a wedding is seeing all the photos after! Of course, for the bride and groom, you may be on pins and needles just waiting for that email with the photo gallery so you can find your favorites and start sharing them as much as possible. However, a lot of your guests won’t receive a full gallery of all of your wedding photos, and you may not want them to see every picture. So how should you share your wedding photographs with guests?

How to Share Your Wedding Photographs with Guests

To Share or Not to Share

First off, you might consider how close you are with each of your wedding guests. For example, your coworkers may think it’s odd that you shared the entire photo gallery with them. There’s a good chance they don’t want to see every photo and will only be interested in some of the highlights that you post on Facebook. However, your parents and immediate family maybe even more excited to see every picture than you are. Determine who you want to see what before deciding how to share the photos with them.

Online Galleries

For the guests that have a high amount of interest in the photos, you can easily share your wedding photographs with your guests through your online galleries that allows them to view photos by category! Anything from “ceremony” to “reception” to “group photos”. Most photographer online gallery sites will even let guests pick favorites and download images with a passcode.

For the friends and family that are close but not close enough to want to view all 600 pictures from your wedding album, we recommend sharing specific folders or pictures. Typically galleries will let you only share specific categories or images with certain people. Not wanting to let them download your images? That’s ok, discuss with your photographer ahead of time that you want your gallery to be password protected so you have control over who gets to download what.


Facebook is an AMAZING way to casually share your favorite pictures for everyone to scroll through! Family, friends, and casual acquaintances all love looking at pictures on Facebook.

This can be a great option if you want certain family members or friends to add the pictures they took throughout the night to the album.
