a quick note of thanks

Awards

Those of you that follow my page on Facebook may be aware of the fact that I was the recipient of two important awards over the course of the last couple of months. First, I received word back in late November that Joe Payne Photography had received The Knot’s “2012 Pick – Best of Weddings” award; that was followed up this week with news from Wedding Wire that we’d been awarded the “Bride’s Choice Award 2012”.

To say I’m really excited to receive these awards is an understatement. They really mean a lot to me as they are chosen based on feedback from my clients. Only a select few make the cut and I am definitely honoured to be among them. It means even more to me as I only moved to the NC area in October of 2010 and, between having a baby and getting settled in our new home, starting the business off from scratch was a bit of a daunting task (to say the least!).

For this reason, I would like to sincerely thank all my clients, past, present and future, for their continued support and feedback. This is a referral-based business, so your kind help in spreading the word is very much appreciated. I also want to thank you all for your emails and comments. Getting to know you all and share your wedding celebrations with you has been very special indeed.

I’m looking forward to a great year ahead with even more amazing events planned. Stay tuned!

Best wishes to everyone for a Happy and Prosperous 2012!

Joe

With ceremonies and receptions at beautiful venues across North Carolina from Lake Lure to the Carolina Inn and Duke Chapel, a whole host of fantastic couples, and a number of awards it really was a great 12 months indeed. So it was really nice to end the year on a high note by winning the Wedding Photographic Society's "Photographer of the Year" award for 2012.

raleigh wedding photographer – 2013 best photography award
The night before last, I was extremely honoured to receive the "2013 Best of NACE Award" for "Best Photography" at the Triangle NACE Annual Awards Gala at the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club in Durham, NC. NACE is a fantastic organization with the mission of developing professionals in the wedding and event industry. As such, this particular award meant a lot to me on a couple of levels: firstly, given the number of wedding photographers involved in our chapter at both the membership and board level it was judged by another chapter who didn't know anything about who we were, and, secondly, I was up against a number of other very well-est ...
