Collecting your wedding photos has never been easier.

Lense is a simple and fun way to collect photos from your wedding guests by using our digital disposable camera app. A digital album is created of your guests moments.

How does it work?

Lense offers similar (and more!) functionality to The Guest Photo Sharing, and can be the perfect replacement. Here's how it works:

  1. Guests scan a wedding QR code with their smartphone.
  2. A disposable camera pops up (without downloading an app).
  3. Guests can now take pictures or upload them to the shared album. Nobody can see them yet!
  4. The next day: all pictures reveal. Everyone can look back on the day by viewing the shared photo album.

Easily capture every moment of your event

Guests will be able to take pictures using our disposable camera app as well as upload them from their camera simply by scanning a QR code. No app downloads necessary.
