HoneyBook – Stylish Digital Wedding Albums


The days when etiquette dictated that all wedding photos must be printed in leather-bound albums are behind us. Fewer professional photographers are using traditional film, and those photographers who use digital cameras need a reliable way to post proofs for their clients to view online. Enter HoneyBook.

Although HoneyBook will eventually be available to couples looking for ways to share photos, videos, music, and other digital content with friends, the web-application is currently only available to professional photographers. If you fit the bill, and you’re looking for a better way to share photos with your clients, then create a free HoneyBook account and start uploading images right away. Wedding albums can be organized in a timeline format, making it easy for clients to scroll straight to the ceremony or the reception when looking for specific files. Adding a ceremony song that plays when people visit an album and including a guestbook that people can use to post personal messages are two ways you can make each of your clients’ online albums unique.

When HoneyBook opens up for the public to use, couples will be able to request that their friends and family add their own content (including videos and candid snapshots) to their digital albums. HoneyBook is also working on features that will allow couples to tag certain vendors in their photos, which will be useful for brides-to-be who are interested in seeing the work that local florists and caterers have done at past events.

Practical Uses:

  • Create a portfolio of the images you took at a recent wedding
  • Impress clients by posting their photos in a stylish format
  • Post your own wedding images online
  • Invite friends to upload any snapshots they took at your event

Insider Tips:

  • People can upload virtually any type of media content, including photos, videos, and audio files
  • Users will eventually be able to tag vendors inside their photos
  • Brides can make some of their photos public, while keeping the majority of their albums private

What we liked:

  • HoneyBook is free for both couples and photographers
  • Photos are presented in a stylish way
  • Couples can encourage their friends to contribute to their albums
  • HoneyBook allows guests to post congratulatory messages

What we didn’t like:

  • HoneyBook isn’t available for couples just yet
