After attending several weddings, the founder of We SnapThat noticed that guests were taking loads of photos and videos and wondered if all those beautiful moments that were captured would ever be seen by the bride and groom or other guests?

When the event starts all attendees can easily upload and share their media, for everyone to view and enjoy.

Why is it a great idea for weddings?
In this day and age smart phones have the ability to take great photos and videos. Everyone has the ability to capture life's events from all angles, however it is always a struggle to share these images. The bride and groom are focused on their professional photographer to capture their magical moments, all guests who take pictures and videos have no platform to easily share their media apart from WhatsApp where you need everyone contact details. WhatsApp compresses images and videos so they quality is lost and you cannot create large print outs from them, plus photos and video get forgotten in the endless chat messages.
WeSnapThat creates a private, safe, and secure platform for you and guests to easily share media and capture all those moments that may have been missed. You don't need to know everyone's contact details like WhatsApp to create a group, Attendees join quickly through the app and then start sharing to create a perfect photo album of your event. Guests feel more engaged and part of your big day.
Is it safe to use?
WeSnapThat is very safe to use, using Amazon web servers for their high-end security, also all events created on WeSnapThat are private and the only people who can see your content are the people you have invited to that specific event.
As previously mentioned, there's also an option when you create an event that you as the event owner can manually approve each attendee, as without your approval they cannot upload any media to your event; and the added block user feature means you can block unwanted guests. For extra security every user that signs up to the app, be it via a full sign up or guest sign up, needs to add their first name and surname ensuring that when they participate in your event you know who they as well as getting notifications when users join your event.
Are there any costs involved?
The app is absolutely free to use, no hidden costs at all or crazy advertising!
