Let the World Know: How to Share Your Wedding Photos

July 6, 2020

Getting married to the person you love is a once in a lifetime moment and one of the happiest you'll experience. Months go into planning your special day, and it's only natural that you'll want to remember it forever.

Wedding photos are the best way to reminisce on the day you and your partner united as one. Your closest friends and family members are going to want to remember the occasion as well.  

Read on to learn all of the best ways to share your wedding photos. 

Create an Online Photo Gallery

Online galleries are often used by photographers to share their wedding photography with the bride and groom so that they can choose their favorite pictures. You can also create your own gallery or use the one the photographer put together to share your wedding photographs with your loved ones. 

If you decide to create your own wedding website, there are plenty of website builders that make it easy.

Here are just a few of the options:

  • Extra
  • WeddingWire
  • Wedding Jojo
  • The Knot
  • Luvbirds

Use Social Media Platforms

Most people have a social media account that they use every day. The great news about sharing your wedding photos on a social media platform is that it's expected, so no one will be put off by seeing your photos. 

On most social media platforms, you can choose whether your photos are shared with the whole world or just your group of friends. 

One of the best aspects of sharing through social media is the option for people to tag others, like, comment, and share your photos.  

Facebook and Instagram

Facebook and Instagram are two of the most popular social networks out there, so chances are that anyone you want to share with will be able to see your posts.

Both platforms also provide a story option, so you can post a large amount without filling up people's feed. 

Part of what makes Facebook unique is the option to create a photo album, so you can put all of your family wedding photos in one place. 

Facebook has also broken into the video market with live video and the option to post videos. If you or a family member shares a wedding video that someone wants to download, they have that option as long as they know how to download videos from Facebook

Instagram, on the other hand, is a great choice because you can create your own wedding hashtag. Other people who attend your wedding can use this tag too. This makes it so anyone who looks up the hashtag can see your whole collection of wedding photography. 


Flickr is a less popular platform but made specifically for photo-sharing with groups. In fact, billions of photos have been uploaded to Flickr since it was created. 

Simply form a group, and everyone can share their images with that group. 

You can also download the Flickr app and use other people's photos for wedding inspiration. 


Pinterest is another great platform for finding wedding inspiration.

After your wedding, you can upload your own wedding decor, planning tips, and ideas to share your photos with the world. You might just help someone else out along the way. 

Photo-sharing Apps

While all social media platforms have apps, there are separate apps you can use that are made specifically for sharing wedding photos. These apps make sending your high-quality wedding photos easier.

When choosing a photo-sharing app, look at the features they offer to find the one right for you. Some allow commenting on photos, while others feature the option to order prints directly from the app.

Apps will also differ in price, varying from free to premium plans. 

Some examples of highly reviewed photo-sharing apps include:

  • Veri
  • Eversnap
  • Wedding Photo Swap
  • Google and Apple Photos

Make a Physical Wedding Album

Not all methods of sharing wedding photographs require the internet. Rather, you can create a physical wedding album to place in your house on a shelf or table. 

Not only is this a fun way for you and your house guests to remember the event, but creating a wedding scrapbook can be fun. There are plenty of gorgeous wedding photo album ideas to inspire you. 

You can also frame some of the best photos and hang them around your house. 

Sharing Down the Road

Months or years past the wedding date, you may get the urge to share your wedding photos on social media again. 

But how do you do this while staying relevant and without annoying your followers? 

There are a couple of opportunities that are perfect for sharing, no matter how much time has gone by. 

You Have Something to Celebrate

Certain celebrations are perfect for sharing an old wedding picture. These include anniversaries, birthdays, and promotions. 

Anniversaries are a time to cherish your time together, and it's only natural to share a moment from when your lives officially came together. 

You or a loved one getting a promotion is also a good time if the post goes into how supporting each other got you there. 

You can even share wedding photos on a friend's birthday if the photo is of the two of you together.  

Throwback Thursday 

Throwback Thursday or #TBT is the perfect opportunity to share a wedding picture. The whole point of #TBT is to look back at a time in your life, and your wedding is a pretty important time!

Just make sure that you don't post one every Thursday, or it might get old. 

Put Your Wedding Photos Out There  

Now that you know how to, it's time to get your wedding photos out there for the world to see. Or at least share them with your friends and family. 

Your wedding will be one of the most important and special days in your life and signifies a great turning point. What better way to remember and cherish the occasion than with beautiful photos?
