"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
