Destination Wedding Photos: There's an App for That!Words by Courtney Kellar Words by Courtney Cox

As many past brides will attest, your destination wedding day will absolutely fly by! While you’ll be left with priceless memories, it’s nice to capture as much as possible through photos. After attending a combined 14 weddings and nine bachelor parties in one year, co-founders of tryCapsule.com Cyrus, Omri and Ryan were exhausted trying to track all the events through traditional social media sites. While there were plenty of sites for storing your own photos (Facebook, Flickr, Smugmug) there weren’t any sites dedicated to the collection of all the guests’ photos.
This prompted the guys to create tryCapsule.com, a paid service for brides and grooms-to-be which allows the couple to quickly and easily aggregate all the photos from their special day. CapsuleCam is a free mobile app for Android and iPhone, which allows guests to take photos and their shots automatically synced to a central and private group album. Photos taken with other devices can also be easily uploaded the the album via tryCapsule.com.
There are three different packages couples can choose from. By paying for a Capsule account, the service comes at no cost to your guests. They simply download the free app and gain access to your online album with your log-in information. Once logged in, guests can upload their photos, comment and interact. Capsule members can also order prints, download hi-resolution copies and share to social networks directly from the site.
Justin Fredericks, founder of Marriage.com and an advisor for tryCapsule says, “In my experience, there are two keys to being happy with the way things went after your wedding: adhere to your budget and capture as many quality photos as you can. I like the fact that Capsule addresses both of these issues and gives the bride and groom immediate access to the photos from their big day – no one wants to wait to see their photos!”
