Getting married? Throwing a big event? Automatically get all of the photos and videos guests take at your wedding, reception or celebration with The Guest by The Knot! No uploading, no tagging, no separate camera apps. With The Guest (formerly known as Veri), all guests need is their normal Android camera to join in on the photo-sharing fun.

Simply create an event, invite guests via phone number or email address, and The Guest does the rest— for free! As soon as an event begins, The Guest will start sharing photos and videos guests are taking with their Android cameras in real time as they take them.

Use The Guest To:

+ GET EVERYONE’S PHOTOS & VIDEOS - Wedding guests take 2000 pics on average— which the newlyweds will never see. Since The Guest automatically shares wedding pics and videos as guests take them, you’ll never have this issue!

+ SAY “BYE” TO UPLOADING AND SEPARATE CAMERA APPS - Guests use their normal Android camera, and photos & videos are instantly auto-shared to everyone who’s part of an event! Guests are in-control of their content, and can delete their pics or pause their auto-sharing at any time.

+ ACCESS FULL-RESOLUTION PHOTOS & FULL-LENGTH VIDEOS - Everyone can download any -or all!- of an event’s photos and videos in full resolution.

+ GET EVERYTHING INSTANTLY - No waiting weeks to get your wedding pics. With The Guest, photos & videos are shared in real time.

+ HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WEB ALBUM - Everyone can see, download and share all of the photos in the app’s event or in the web album The Guest automatically creates.

+SHOW LIVE WEB SLIDESHOWS - Display an event’s photos and videos on any screen as a live slideshow with just one simple web link.

+RELIVE IT WITH MAP VIEW - Guests can see where they went during an event with a completely private, real-time map view

+ ATTEND FROM ANYWHERE - Guests who couldn’t make it to an event in person can follow along in real time via The Guest.

What real couples are saying:

“The Guest is a must-have for every event/trip and shared moments! We used it twice. For our friends' wedding and for our wedding. So glad we had it! It was so much fun having our friends’ shots and moments in real time. It was like living our reception from everyone's perspective!” - Melanie R.

“We literally have pictures with everyone who came to our wedding thanks to this app. I highly recommend using this if you’re having a wedding or any event you want lots of pics of. Loved having this!!” - Brian S.

"Made sharing wedding pics so easy. Perfect for special days. Loved it." - Nikki M.

Highly Recommend! Used this app for 2 different birthday events and it is fantastic. There are some things that could be better, but nevertheless the overall concept and usability makes it easy for everyone to take pics and share as the event takes place. Things that could be improved on: 1. Not all guests were able to use it right away because the verification text did not come through. Maybe they needed to set it up ahead of time. 2. Being able to save all pics to a cloud service directly.

It does exactly what it says. All the Photos from our wedding were shared, so now i can see the photos everyone took! the quality of the photos doesn't look full res, but it still is a great way for people to just automatically share all images from an event. Edit: I'm taking away one star. I found an issue where some images are given a date of November 1979 for some reason. This makes it difficult to download these pictures and sort through them.

The reason this only gets three stars from me, is that we happen to have our event while the app was changing names and being purchased by "The Knot." I think that made it somewhat more confusing for our guest. However, I think that was a one time issue and wouldn't happen for users going forward. The other reason is simply that I wish you could tie it in with a cloud storage service such as Google or Dropbox. That way, each time photos were added, it would automatically move them over to your cloud storage and thus your synced devices. Would be fairly simple with their APIs. I hope they continue to improve this app idea. However, that would not prevent me from using the app. If I were having another wedding, I would absolutely recommend this app.
