“I Just have My Wedding Photos, Now What？”
Spent months on planning your dream wedding and invested thousands of dollars on photography, now your wedding photos are ready. Most of the wedding photographers will provide an online gallery as well as a custom USB stick for brides.
We understand a married life is always a new chapter, so you may put your attention on something new in your life. Haven’t downloaded the images from the online gallery or couldn’t find the USB stick you received are quite often to see.
Help you to keep your wedding day memory is the reason we choose the wedding photographer as our career. Below are some simple and actionable moves to back up your wedding day digital profiles.
1. Back It Up On Your Own PC
No Matter you received a USB or a DVD disk, it should be readable and writable when you choose a professional wedding photographer. Copy and Past your wedding digital profile to all your private Desktop or laptop is definitely the easy way.
2. Use External Portable Hard drive
Sometimes, you may want to make some extra copies or you don’t have enough space on your PC. We always recommend the couple in this situation to purchase an external portable hard drive. Make sure it is durable and accessible to both Mac OS and Windows. For the capacity, 1TB is normally enough for all your wedding photography and video files. Below is the product we use for our couple. I haven’t heard anything bad from 500+ couples we captured in 5 years.
3. Upload to the Cloud
Upload all your wedding digital profiles on cloud is another alternative method. The free and simple entry-level personal cloud service on Dropbox and Google Drive have enough capacity. However, you do need a fast internet and some patience when uploading your wedding photos and videos to the cloud. (Damn, our network speed is so slow even with NBN).
4. Turn it into Album
This is the old school but practical way. When you have a bit extra to invest, a photo album or book can tell you another angle of your wedding day story. Plus you could store this in your parents’ house, in where you have grown up. Your parents could easily recollect your wedding day story through an album rather than online.
