A website and app that commissions your wedding guests to be your event photographers is apparently a total scam according to Priscialla Kramer, a bride who had her guests use the app to “crowdsource” her wedding photos.
Wedding photography can be an expensive proposition, especially for young, often cash-strapped couples, and it seems that the app called WedReel wanted to capitalize on this market niche.
According to Kramer, WedReel not only scammed her out of hundreds of dollars but also she has nothing to show for it.
Kramer told Valley News “It's pretty frustrating that somebody would create something and just not answer, not give an explanation as to why they did it, or maybe even saying it's not a scam, I'm working on it.”
How it all works, in theory, is that the couple getting married commissions WedReel which then allows guests to download an app. None of the photos are saved locally and are, instead, loaded into a cloud which, after processing the photos, delivers the newly wedded couple a wedding highlight reel.
