If you’ve ever tried to amass all the pictures taken at an event, you know how difficult and frustrating a task that can be. Images snapped on iPhones and photos taken on someone’s digital camera may lounge around in people’s files for months before you ever see them, especially if they’ve been named something obscure, or if a guest misplaced their flash drive in a drawer for a while.
Sharing those pictures with everyone who attended the event can be even more daunting than getting your hands on the images to begin with! Your computer-phobic great aunt might have no idea what Instagram, Tumblr, or Facebook are, and folks who have 1000+ friends on their social media sites might just skim over notifications and tagging.
The good news is that there’s an easy way to get around this issue: you can have images displayed at your event as they’re being taken.
Imagine this scenario: you’ve coordinated a brilliant charity event and a dozen different people manage to capture candid shots of guest speakers and celebrities that others might not have witnessed. Within minutes, everyone in attendance can see the sincere smiles and teary-eyed moments that they might never have been able to view otherwise.
Alternatively, instead of a charity event, you might like to have something unique at your own wedding for your guests to enjoy and interact with. There are so many situations in which a great photo can tell a story of a very human, amazing moment behind the scenes, and when interspersed with pictures of the couple’s courtship and history together… well, that makes for one incredible journey that everyone in attendance can enjoy.
Since you can make the Sharypic wall both a classic photo display and an interactive experience, all attendees can contribute to it as a living, evolving testament to the happy couple. You can set up the display with the couple’s baby pictures, early relationship snapshots, engagement photos, and pre-wedding instant pics, and then the guests can add their own pictures of the happy couple to the rotating carousel! No standard photo album could ever be updated in real time like this.
Sure, the professional photographers at the event will be able to take some great photos that can be put into an album later, but they can’t be everywhere, all the time, like your guests can: while the photographers are covering the newlyweds cutting the cake or raising glasses for a toast, attendees might be capturing the flower girl and ringbearer kissing behind the buffet. Who would want to miss out on seeing that?
Speaking of missing out, there’s one more aspect of Sharypic that’s both unique, and worthy of celebration: the ability to broadcast live. Too often, potential guests can’t make it to a celebration because of limited mobility, illness, or even lack of financial means… but Sharypic allows people to tune in and participate in the event from anywhere in the world. That’s an amazing gift that both the wedding party and distant guests can appreciate beyond measure.
