Here’s my 3 tips’ to saving your photos like a pro. I deliver all my photos using an online gallery but it’s also SUPER IMPORTANT you back up your photos once you receive them. Even if you’ve downloaded them onto your laptop, you risk losing them if, say, you spilt orange juice all over it or it suddenly crashes as technology loves to pull a prank on us sometimes. Here are some tips on how to best store your wedding photos.

1. Backup your photos on at least two reliable devices.
The place you store your photos matter. Here’s the first rule: the more backups you have, the better. When I come home from a shoot I like to back up my photos in at least 3 different places (even if it means staying up till 2am after shooting a wedding). You’ll never know what will happen so I suggest that you save your photos on a USB AND a hard drive, as well as your computer. USB’s don’t have to be boring. If you want a fancy USB stored in a cute wooden box they’re available as an add-on to your package.

2. Print your photos.
Photos are meant to be printed, not stored on your laptop. Physical photos like albums, prints, and framed wall art are much more likely to be looked at, relived and shared whenever family + friends come round. I guarantee you your photo album will be your pride and joy sitting on your coffee table. Plus your photos will still be there even if your laptop decides to go on strike.
I recognise the important of printing your photos, so all galleries have a link to a professional lab that can print and deliver your pics !

3. Save your photos on an online storage space.
Use an online backup service like Google Drive, Dropbox or iCloud AS WELL AS your two reliable devices. Using a combo of different storage solutions means a higher chance of retrieving lost photos. These online services are designed to retain most of the detail and quality of your large files. So, like before, use an online backup service rather than uploading your photos onto Facebook.
