A friend of mine recently got married in LA and she had the most elegant and unique photos that I have ever seen. These pictures not only captured the day perfectly, they captured the mood of the event as well as the personality of the couple. They had not lived in the city for long, so I know that they hired most of their wedding vendors online. They did some research and found this Snapknot site which provided a lot of different photographers in the area, while also showing some distinct photos to represent their photographic style.
My friend was able to save time looking for photographers and was able to access some price estimates without the time and effort of calling each individual business personally. She could eliminate the extremely pricey ones, and also weed out the ones that didn’t seem to suit their own unique style and flair. The photographers remaining had more in-depth information that she reviewed before making a final determination. This site really saved her a lot of energy at a time when she had a million things going on with the planning for her wedding. She had heard about this cool website that listed many Los Angeles wedding photographers from someone at her work, and the locating feature on the site made it easy for her to pick out the most convenient and close options for her specific event. This helped to curb any related transportation costs, and also allowed her a wide range of options for some destination photo-shoots before the ceremony. The photographer that she hired agreed to meet at another location nearby, and take informal shots of all participants. This replayed itself for the rehearsal and dinner as well.
Afterward, when perusing the photos I was amazed at how accurately they depicted the day. They caught the whimsy of the couple and the fun of the reception. The candid pictures of the bride’s parents were priceless, and the video that they compiled really did the wedding justice. The clarity and colors were spot-on, and there were not any “bad” pictures in the entire batch! Since you want to hire someone to take photos to remember the special event, it should be a great photographer, otherwise it seems like money wasted. I think that online resources like this one can make it a far easier process for busy couples.
