LONG TERM WEDDING PHOTO STORAGE IDEAS
The best long term storage ideas I offer my wedding photography and portrait clients is to create another back up of the Flash drive I give you. Copy the contents onto another flash drive and put the other away some where safe. This is a good start but even flash drives are known to fail over time. Definitely avoid making a copy that stays on a hard drive on your computer. A computer can receive a virus that may need to be wiped for reinstallation of operating systems and Hard drives notoriously fail unexpectedly leaving every thing saved on them gone forever.
Using a 2nd hard drive that isn't connected to a computer and only used occasionally for photo storage, but still not a permanent reliable long term storage option for heirloom wedding pictures. Another issue with all of the previously mentioned storage options is a lack of accessibility.
The best Long Term Storage and Accessibility of Wedding Photographs
The best option for long term storage and accessibility of wedding photographs is Google Drive. Google drive is free and provide 15 gigs of cloud storage for all your wedding pictures. Google drive allows you to create an additional backup of your wedding photos in addition to the extra flash drive containing your pictures, yet from any phone, computer, tablet or device you can view, access, download and share your wedding photographs easily. Google Drive allows you to log in from the internet or by downloading their app from a phone, tablet, computer or device.
Additional options include Amazon Cloud drive Storage, Dropbox, and Carbonite, but Google Drive is free with more than enough room to store a complete wedding day collection of photographs.
Conclusion of Wedding Photography Storage options
Making sure you create a back up of your wedding photos that you can access from anywhere at any time is necessary to keep your wedding pictures forever. There are many options and combination of options to store wedding pictures for long term, but for the easiest and least expensive option, Google Drive is the best I have discovered.
