Creating feature class from Collector photo and its EXIF metadata

We have a previously developed application that we’re wondering about using Collector for field inspections. The application involves taking pictures of properties and MUST include metadata (date/time, lat/long, etc) for legal reasons. We’ve worked with Collector before and I know that the _ATTACH table doesn’t have fields for this info, so when the photo attachment is uploaded to the server, it seems to get stripped out. However, I found this post (in this thread for context



which implies the EXIF metadata is kept somewhere. Where is this metadata actually kept once the photo is uploaded to the attachment table? Can this be used to create a feature class that has the photo as well all its data in the same table?
