Instagram Wife

What does instagram wife mean?

A person who has others take pictures of herself for Instagram

A term for a person who is constantly employing an Instagram husband to take pictures of herself for Instagram.

While the term is commonly used to describe a female, an Instagram wife is not exclusive to women as it can be applied to any person who puts another person, most likely a SO, in the position of their personal photographer. An Instagram wife is notoriously needy as she seems to always be looking for a photo op for the purpose of sharing with others on social media. It all comes from a good place though, as the obsession stems from wanting to commemorate occasions with photographic memories.
