Gallery Sites & Delivery Services

I'm not a pro. Just a guy with a camera and some software I can use to take pictures.

A friend recently asked if I would shoot his son's wedding ceremony. The ceremony itself was private and as such my photos consist of about 500 pre-ceremony photos taken outside the court house.

Now I need some feedback from the pros as to what gallery sites they suggest to deliver the images. I'm not interested in selling prints or packages. I just want them to be able to view and download. I would prefer they choose how and where to obtain prints.

And of course, it needs to be FREE!

For sharing I use a One Drive free account. Others use Drop Box.
I don't remember the storage limit on the free One Drive account, but you could always put them there in batches.
Replace the files after they download the previous batch.

I should have stated DropBox and OneDrive or similar are not under consideration at this time. Am hoping for something a little more geared for photographers. But who knows? May just go that route.

I just opened a free account on Pass Gallery. Not sure of its limitations yet. 20G of storage which I'll never use.

Sorry, I was just thinking of making the files available.

No apology necessary. May end up going that route. Thank you for your reply.

Give it to them on a flash drive. This would work unless you want several/many people to view the images.

I think they want to share with immediate family. The shoot itself exceeded my own expectations. I have around 400 images to deliver so it looks like Pass Gallery will work. Plenty of storage and they can select and download only what they want.

Thanks everyone for your replies.

Put them on a flash drive and give it to them. You don't need a "site" to do that.

They want to share with friends and family, so yes, I do need a site for that. Plus it's a vehicle to share my stuff should I ever decide do this again.

Thanks for your reply.
