Top photographer marketplace, Snappr, has acquired Eversnap.
Eversnap was an early entrant to the event photo sharing space a decade ago, launching the top rated wedding photo app, Wedding Snap, in 2012 as a way to allow a wedding to be captured from dozens of perspectives. They rebranded to Eversnap in 2013 and became one of the most popular general group photo sharing apps of the time. Eversnap launched their professional photography services in 2014. Shortly thereafter, Eversnap became one of the top rated photography providers in many major cities across the United States.
Snappr was launched in 2016 and has since grown to be the largest on-demand photography platform in the world, covering over 200 metropolitan areas here in the United States.
“We are very pleased that Eversnap’s customers have found a great home in the Snappr network” said Eversnap co-founder and CEO Sasha Eslami. “Given Snappr’s unique technology and team, Snappr is now uniquely positioned to not only provide the best photography services but also to disrupt the traditional photography industry in many positive ways that will benefit both photographers and customers.”
Eversnap customers have produced tens of millions of photos through the platform, and Snappr will continue to host those photos for its customers.
“We are delighted to welcome Eversnap’s customers into the Snappr’s fast growing family” said Snappr founder and CEO Matt Schiller.
For Snappr, the acquisition coincides with its launch of free unlimited lifetime photo hosting. Previously Snappr only offered free hosting for photos taken by a Snappr’s professional photographers, but now this has been extended to any photos uploaded by a user, pitting the company against the likes of Google Photos.
The move follows the acquisition of Flickr by SmugMug in 2018. Flickr founder Caterina Fake recently became an investor in Snappr via her firm Yes VC.
The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
