The editors of Rangefinder are thrilled to unveil the answers from our Reader Survey, where more than 700 of you weighed in on a range of industry-related questions. We’ve tallied the results and compiled the lists of some of your tried-and-true favorites, including the Top 10 Must-Have Photo Accessories, Photo Upsells, Favorite Wedding Venues, Favorite Wedding Details, and more. We also introduce the 10 Most-Sought-After Wedding Photographers of the Year, nominated by magazine and blog editors throughout the industry. And if you’re looking for new wedding blogs to submit to, we combed the Internet for the highest trafficked alternative and regional sites. Keep in mind: These lists are not all-inclusive: if you don’t see your favorite person or thing mentioned, there’s always next year! Thank you to everyone who took our survey, and we hope you find something valuable in knowing the preferences of your peers.

“When I look at bridal publications and blogs, many of the same ideas and images are just being recycled, so I like to visit non-wedding publications and blogs for inspiration. They help me come up with fresh ideas for my own blog. I have a list of style, personal and cooking blogs that I reference when I’m feeling uninspired. Art museums can also be quite inspiring.”—Sarah Darcy, Editor, Classic Bride Blog
