Just a couple of weeks into 2011, I was informed by weddingwire.com that I’ll be receiving a 2011 Bride’s Choice Award for Wedding Photography. I was officially given the award after a press release confirmed the winners’ list a few days ago. Now I can brag/blog about it with you. Top 5% sounds cool, I suppose.
This really came as a surprise to me. Firstly, I don’t usually receive awards and secondly, I cannot remember anyone submitting any kind of nomination on my behalf. Which led me to think that weddingwire.com periodically hands awards to increase traffic to their website. All kidding aside, I’m actually very happy that my perseverance and diligence to good customer service received positive recognition.
I also want to send my thanks and appreciation to all my clients for the wonderful opportunity to share their day with them. You all deserved this recognition as much as I do because, you did all the hard work as bride and groom. You transformed ideas from your heart and soul, spinning wedding dreams into a reality. I am fortunate enough to have the chance to photograph your memories and to turn them into personalized works of art.
One person I’d like to thank especially is my wife, Annie, who’s been by my side since the beginning of my photographic endeavor. I couldn’t have gotten this far with yiuphotography without her constantly on my back reminding me that I can do it.
Ok… enough with of the Oscar-like acceptance speech. Here’s the Press Release:

Now for some photos. After all, this is a photoblog, a post without photos will just be crazy right?
Here’s a couple of shot I took at the Great Jack O’Lantern event in the Historic Hudson Valley last Halloween.
They were all taken handheld with reasonable length of exposure. Hope you like them.
