In this third and final part of our 3-part series “How to Find a Wedding Photographer Online” we discuss how photographers’ pricing and your personal budget affects your search for the perfect wedding photographer.
Part 3: The Price Is Right (or Is It)?
As is the case with all aspects of wedding planning, it is important to have a clearly established budget for your wedding photography. Some important questions you might ask yourself are whether or not you want to spend more money on photography because it is particularly important to you (you are willing to pay more for quality), what you want to have included in your wedding package (for example, engagement or boudoir sessions, an album with a certain number of pages, or ownership of all your images), and what variables you may be willing to compromise (or not) to stay within your budget.
As you begin your online wedding photography search, you will undoubtedly save yourself time if you use wedding websites that display wedding photographer prices and allow you to easily search and/or filter your results based on a photographer’s price point. By using websites that contain this functionality you won’t be confronted with the time consuming task of sourcing price data from the individual websites of each photographer that catches your eye, and more importantly you won’t have to worry about falling in love with a photographer (or multiple photographers) only to discover they are far beyond your budget.
With SnapKnot you can use the handy slider to set your upper and lower budget bounds, and instantly the search results will display only the wedding photographers who fall within your range. From there you can click on a wedding photographer’s SnapKnot to see more detailed pricing information (their minimum, average, and maximum wedding prices), giving you clear and efficient information about the wedding photographers that likely fall within your budget range:
