grammy award winner blueflash

2011 is over and the votes are in. blueflash has, for the second year in a row, won the "bride's choice awards" for 2012 from the fine folks at weddingwire/martha stewart weddings/project wedding/best city weddings/bridal buds/wedding aces. why all the slashes and company names? because they're really all one company under the martha stewart empire.

for you skeptics out there, here's the badge to prove it:

Weddings, Wedding Venues
2012 Bride's Choice Awards | Best Wedding Photographers, Wedding Dresses, Wedding Cakes, Wedding Florists, Wedding Planners

what the heck is the bride's choice award and who cares if blueflash won it two years in a row? well, i can answer the first part of that question for you. this award is given to the top 5% wedding vendors in the country. ok, here's the truth: nobody actually votes. well, people do, but indirectly. the opening line of this blog entry was for dramatization purposes, kind of like when the photo of the cereal on the box is 'enlarged to show detail'. as a side note, how great would it be if cocoa puffs really were that big?

anywho, the way they decide who gets this award is based solely on reviews from previous clients. who better to decide if a company is any good or not? the ratings are a star system, from 0 to 5 for multiple categories including professionalism, quality, value, etc... it also allows for a little write-up where the client can put down some of their thoughts about their experience.

i am proud to say that blueflash currently has 38 reviews on record and every one of them is a perfect 5 out of 5 stars. i'm not bragging, it's just nice that when you put your guts into something and try to do the best job you can do for the people that hire you and they respond positively, it's cool.

i want to thank all the good people that have used blueflash over the past few years and given me the opportunity to record some images for you. i am especially appreciative of liz and dale, the couple who had enough confidence in my (at the time) meager portfolio to sign me for my first wedding. that took guts.

here's to 2012. i hope people keep saying nice things about blueflash.
