Snappr acquires Eversnap

The U.S. on-demand photography marketplaceSnappr, has acquired competitor Eversnap. Terms weren’t disclosed. This is Snappr’s second acquisition, the first being Australian photographer directory in 2018.

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, which was rebranded to Eversnap in 2013 and became one of the most popular general group photo-sharing apps. Eversnap launched their professional photography services in 2014. At the time of the acquisition it had almost one million users.

Snappr was launched in 2016 and has since grown to be the largest on-demand photography platform in the world, including covering over 200 metropolitan areas in the United States, the company claims. Customers can book an on-demand photoshoot with as little as 2 hours notice for anything from a family portrait to a real estate shoot.

“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 Snappr’s fast growing family,” said Matt Schiller, founder and CEO, Snappr.  “They will now have access to our unrivalled network, as well as totally free hosting and gallery features.”

The deal comes two years after the acquisition of Flickr by SmugMug in 2018. Flickr founder Caterina Fake recently became an investor in Snappr via her firm Yes VC.
