We have introduced you to SnapKnot in the past, and talked about how this is a must-bookmark tool for anyone planning their wedding. It’s your direct line to finding the perfect wedding photographer for you, where you can search and filter by location and budget. SnapKnot actually lets brides get matched with photographers without having to do any work and searching. Simply put in your parameters and photographers who match their criteria will be notified and able to reach out directly through the site. Today, they are back to share with us their expert advice on finding THE photographer who will capture in photos your wedding day memories you will cherish for many years to come.
Snapknot suggests that your wedding photography should be around 15% of your total budget. There are many options out there, but don’t let the sheer volume of photographers overwhelm you. You can search Snapknot’s directory by budget and location, which filters down to photographers who are great matches. From there, you can narrow your list of options further by asking if your date is available even before digging further into a photographer’s portfolio. Treat this stage of your search like an interview by asking questions like, “How many weddings have you photographed?” and, “Can you share past client’s testimonials?”
By now you should feel pretty comfortable that your list is full of professional vendors. This is where the fun stuff happens! What kind of vibe are you looking for? If you find yourself pinning more classic wedding portraits than illustrative then now is the time to take a glance at the photographers available and slash through the ones who are not experts in the style you are searching for. Not entirely sure what style is for you? SnapKnot has a great post to help clarify the different photography styles out there! By now your list should really be narrowed down enough to where you can decide based on personal preferences and policies. For even more great questions to ask your photographer head over to SnapKnot’s blog where you’ll find a host of great ideas and useful advice.
