We are excited to announce that the SnapKnot iPhone App is here! This is a free wedding planning iPhone app that helps you with the most important part of your wedding day – finding a photographer to capture that special moment forever. Now engaged couples can browse wedding photographers listed on snapknot.com anytime, anywhere. Your search for your perfect wedding photographer is no longer confined to your computer – enjoy mobile search via the SnapKnot iPhone App while on the go, waiting for the bus, on your lunch break – wherever and whenever you have a few extra minutes and you want to look through the hundreds of incredible wedding and engagement images we showcase on SnapKnot (over 3000 photographers worldwide!). The app is also compatible with the iPod touch and iPad.
Here’s a look at the app home screen:
The app defaults to your current location using GPS technology. You can also enter any city in the world and search within a radius between 5-50 miles around that location:
When you choose your search criteria and tap the search icon, wedding photographers who match your criteria will load. There is also a budget slider so you can narrow or expand your search according to your personal budget range. Simply slide the blue diamond minimum and maximum icons until your preferred budget range is displayed. Results will refresh based on your selection. If you want to choose a new location, simply tap the pink and white Location globe icon in the upper left:
Scroll through wedding photographers by flicking up or down:
If you come across a wedding photographer you like and you would like to learn more, tap the pink About button and you will go to that photographer’s profile. Here you can see the photographer’s price range, locations, years of experience, and details about the photographer.
To see more wedding images beyond the cover shot, click on the pink Gallery icon in the lower right of the profile to go to the portfolio screen, where photographers can display up to a dozen of their best wedding photos. Flick to the right or left to browse the photos:
Rotate to view horizontally-oriented photos. Double-tap to zoom:
If you like what you see, you can click the Add to Favorites icon on the photographer’s profile to add him to your list for later consideration, or to share with friends:
You can also contact a wedding photographer directly for inquiries about booking info, availability dates, package details, and anything else you would like to ask:
Share a link to a favorite wedding photographer’s profile on snapknot.com with a friend directly from the app. Ask your friends and family to help in your search and provide you with recommendations!
Most of the wedding photographers on SnapKnot use social media effectively to share new work, communicate with their fans and connect with new couples. Visit a photographer’s Facebook page via the app:

And last but (we hope) not least – you can follow along with the latest updates to the SnapKnot Blog while on the go! View our blog RSS feed right in the app and read new posts from your iPhone:
We hope you are as excited about the new SnapKnot iPhone App as we are. This tool allows many more couples to search the SnapKnot community of wedding photographers at a time and place of their convenience. Please download the FREE app, test it out, let us know how it works and what you would like to see fixed/changed/improved for future versions. We especially appreciate any reviews and ratings you would like to leave us in the iTunes App Store.
