Value-Conscious Brides Develop and Share Wedding Pictures Online

SAN FRANCISCO - May 17, 2001 - Most brides provide single-use cameras on the tables at the reception so they don't miss a single moment of the action. But when the honeymoon is over, they face the expensive, time-consuming headache of developing all those photos and sharing them with the wedding guests.

Now brides are using online photo services to develop wedding photos and share the pictures online, even if they use a film camera. Snapfish -- -- develops, digitizes and prints photos from film cameras, digital cameras or single-use (disposable) cameras for less than it would cost at the drugstore.

"We recommend that brides choose the best photos from their single-use cameras and create one special online album from that day," Snapfish Memories Manager Kristen McEntire said. "Then they simply enter their guests' email addresses to share the album, and everyone orders the pictures they want from Snapfish -- and no one hassles with the negatives."

Snapfish offers film and single-use camera users developing, digitizing and a full set of prints on Kodak paper for less than $2 per roll plus shipping and handling. Digital camera users get free uploads, storage and online sharing. All photos are stored in password-protected online albums, making it easy to add captions, share the photos and order enlargements and reprints.

"The password-protected online albums make it easy to share the best photos with the wedding guests so they can order their own copies," McEntire said. "Now brides can develop, print and share their photos online and get a great value in the process."

Let Snapfish buy your reception cameras! A special "Picture Perfect Weddings" contest will award a $500 gift certificate from the Snapfish camera store, plus kits of 10 single-use cameras for use at the wedding reception. To enter, simply share an online album with pictures of the happy couple with the Snapfish judges at For more information on the contest, please visit
