Wedding Trends We Love: Instagram + Animoto for Photo Sharing

If you’re iPhone or Android user, chances are you’ve got downloaded the super cool Instagram app. (And if you haven’t, you should do it…like, now!). The growing mobile social network allows you to add quirky features and effects to simple camera phone-snapped pics, including filters for old-school image rendering and photo frames. And now, they’ve teamed up with the easy-to-use photo-to-video site Animoto, allowing users to create cool slideshows with their camera phone handiwork.

Hundreds of wedding professionals are already using Animoto as a go-to resource for promoting their services, and we see this merger of social media trends as a great tool for brides and grooms to use for photo sharing with friends and loved ones on Facebook or YouTube pages. Check out our :30 video clip we created using both tools:
