Awards

Just received word that the studio was awarded The Knot‘s Best of Weddings Pick for 2013 for Wedding Photographers in Raleigh NC. This is the second year in a row and I feel very honoured indeed. Unlike some other websites, The Knot is quite selective with who it chooses for this award.

I’d like to thank all my clients over the course of the year for being such great fun to work with and also for their support in providing me with feedback to help spread the word.

Cheers!

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. ...

Firstly, I'd like to start off by wishing everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year! It's gone by so fast, but 2012 was a fantastic year for Joe Payne Photography with some truly gorgeous weddings for me to cover. 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. For those who do not know about the WPS, it's a network of pr ...
