WHAT COUPLES ARE SAYING

"My fiance and I were in the market for a photographer for our upcoming wedding, and we turned to SnapKnot. We had a few friends who were avid photographers, but we did not want our friends to work during the wedding. With the help of SnapKnot, we provided some basic requirements, including our wedding date, the wedding location, and our budget. Instantly, we started receiving offers from a wide variety of photographers who were competing to earn our business. The entire process was simple and quick."
- Tim, Boston Groom

"I LOVE your site. It takes some of the stress out of planning a wedding.
Finding a good photographer is key!" Cherish, Greenville Bride

Why you need professional photographers
 
When you’re getting married, the last thing you want to worry about is going around taking photos or relying on your friends to do it.  Here are some reasons you should hire professional Chicago wedding photographers instead:
 
1. Chicago wedding photography is their game.
 
In other words, this is what they do, and they are experts at it.  They will have professional cameras and not Smartphones, thus producing better quality photos.  They will also know how to:
 
• use the lighting to their advantage;
• create unique camera angles;
• zoom in or out to alter the focus of the shot; and
• create an individualized wedding album, movie and online link; and
 
2. They know the city.
 
The best Chicago wedding photographers have been photographing happy couples for years. They will be familiar with your venue, and they will know how to take photos that show off your surroundings.   For example, if your venue is the Odyssey Tour cruise, they might have to stand against the backdrop of the unique Chicago skyline to create the perfect wedding photo.   You might see landmarks like the Willis Tower, John Hancock Observatory and the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel all in one shot.  Perhaps, as you traverse the winding Chicago waterways, the photographers will snap you and your love kissing beneath one of the landmark bridges.   Now that’s romantic!
 
Chicago’s unique location and history evoke a certain emotion.  Chicago wedding photographers will know how blend the vibe and magic of the city with the bliss of the occasion.  They will bring your vision of the perfect wedding to life through the camera’s lens.
 
3. Everyone will have more fun.
 
Finally, taking photographs is work that should be left to the experts.  You and your guests should have a beautiful wedding experience without worrying about snapping photos of every sweet or funny moment.  Sure, you might take a selfie here and there, but you also want to create an album the whole family can share!
