FAQ's


Click one of the categories below for common questions and answers


Live Slideshow


Do I have to have a screen to project onto?

The live slideshow can be pulled up on any laptop or computer that has internet access. You can then plug it into a TV, projector or monitor to show it at your reception! Ask your venue for help - they almost always have a screen available for you to use.


How do I set it up at my event?

On a computer or laptop, open your browser (e.g. Chrome, Safari, etc.) and go to your capsule address (ex. capstory.me/joeyandheather). Then, click the 'slideshow' button up top. Connect your computer to the projector or TV if you have one. That's it! You'll see photos being uploaded in real-time. New photos will automatically appear as they are texted in. You do not need to refresh the page or do anything else for new photos to be uploaded.


If I don't set up the live slideshow, can photos still be uploaded?

Yes. The photos will still be uploaded to your capsule and will be there for you when you visit the page. The Live Slideshow just lets you view them as they are submitted.


If I don't have internet at the venue, will Capstory still work?

Yes and no - some parts will and some won’t. You will still be able to text in photos and have them uploaded to your capsule. The live slideshow will not update in real-time on a computer as this requires internet. However, Capstory clients in the past have set up phone hotspots to get around this. Ask your venue or contact us for more help.

Your Capsule


Can I use my capsule before my wedding date? Will I be able to see the pictures online?

Your capsule is created within 24 hours of us receiving your payment - usually sooner. As soon as it is setup, it is ready to go! This means you can submit content from engagement parties, bachelorette parties and more to your capsule from the moment it is activated. You will be able to instantly view all the photos, at anytime from anywhere, at the capsule address we provide.


When does the capsule shut down?

The capsule will always be available at your unique address for you and your guests to view. We keep your memories safe forever. You can upload photos to your capsule at any time after the wedding. We encourage you and your guests to submit any other photos within a week following your event so we can include those memories in your printed keepsakes.


Is the capsule link (URL) something we can share after the wedding for our guests to look at? Or, will we be the only ones with access?

You can share your link with any and all of your guests to view your photos. We will also print the link to your capsule on your guest instruction cards so they know where to see photos once they upload them.


How long after the wedding will the link stay active?

For a limited time, couples who purchase capsules now will have unlimited access to their wedding capsule - forever. We will update this page once that changes.


Is there a maximum amount of pictures/videos that can be added to the capsule?

There is no maximum number of photos or videos you can have in your capsule!

Texting in media


How does texting in photos work?

Each capsule has its own unique address to accept messages. You'll get yours when your capsule is created (ex. joeyandheather@capstory.me). This address works just like a phone number and you (and your guests) can just text photos, quotes and videos right to it from your phone just like you would any other text. No emailing required.


Can I email in photos?

If you want to, yes. We recommend texting in photos as it is easier however, if you want to email photos to your capsule address, you can. It will still work and show up in the same way.


How quickly can we expect a picture/video to be up on the capsule once it is submitted?

Your capsule is lightning fast. Photos, once sent from your phone, usually take 15 to 30 seconds to show up!


Will it work on any phone?

We built our system to work on any phone on any carrier! We currently support all carriers in the United States and all phones that can send a text.


Do my guests have to sign up beforehand?

No. They can start sending in photos as soon as you give them your unique address with no sign up or set up required. They’ll appreciate that :).


Are the photos high quality?

Yes. Because of how your capsule is set up, texted in photos are the full resolution image. It is not shrunk or distorted in any way. Put another way, we’ve had couples print poster size prints from their guest images with photos sent from an iPhone.


Does it require a smartphone or data plan?

No. Texting in to Capstory works on any phone that can send a text with a photo! You don't even need a data connection or data plan to use it.

After the Wedding


How many of the photos do I get to keep?

You get to keep all of your photos. We do not charge you extra for having a ton of pictures in your capsule. You have full access to download the original, high-resolution, non-watermarked version of any and all images at any time. Really.


When do I get access to my photos?

You can access your photos immediately. As soon as they are sent in and show up in your capsule (usually 15-30 seconds); you can view them and download them.


Can I download the photos and print my own books, posters, etc?

Yes. You can download any or all the photos in your capsule and do whatever you would like with them. We do not prevent or block you from doing so!

Keepsake Albums


What size are the keepsakes (photo albums)?

There are two sizes Capstory offers currently. One is a larger book at 8” x 9”. The other is a smaller keepsake that works great as a gift item and is X.


What quality are the keepsakes?

The photo books are printed on high-quality, acid-free, stain resistant photo paper and are printed by a professional printing firm. If you have any problems or dislike anything with your keepsakes, we will refund or replace the book at our cost.


How do you pick the pictures for the book?

We have professionals on our team pick and choose the photos that best tell the story of your wedding journey. We always make sure to have a good mix of before, during and after wedding photos and will always select the best quality photos from your capsule.


What if I don't like what you picked for the photo book?

If you don’t like our selections from the book, let us know what we can do better. We’ll re-create your book with your preferences and you can order as many as you would like with your changes.


What order are the photos in the book in?

The photos in the book will be in chronological order to tell the story of your wedding journey.

Service


What are the terms/details of the money back guarantee?

Pretty simple. We want to have happy customers. It doesn’t help us to have a customer unsatisfied with our product. If we can’t fix the problem to your satisfaction, we will give you a full refund on the cost of your capsule package returned to your credit card. We are open to doing this anytime you are unsatisfied and you can just email our customer happiness team member Kelli Foster at hello@capstory.me with the subject line “Refund request” and your message.
