Our new blog site is up and running!!! Please visit us at our new blog home at http://www.ourweddingmoments.com/blog for all the exciting happenings of 2009!!!

We woke up this morning and found the following in our email and just had to share it with you!

WeddingWire, the nation’s leading wedding technology company, just announced that In The Moment Photographs has won the 2009 Bride’s Choice Awards™!

In its inaugural year, the Bride’s Choice Awards recognizes and honors vendors from the WeddingWire Network that demonstrate excellent quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value of cost and flexibility. This year’s recipients represent the top three percent of WeddingWire’s vendor community, which includes over 100,000 wedding vendors from across the US. That means In The Moment Photographs is one of the very best in Wedding Photography.

Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the company, the Bride’s Choice Awards are determined exclusively by recent newlyweds through surveys and reviews.

“We are excited to launch this annual award program to honor high-performing vendors based solely on the experiences of our WeddingWire community,” according to Timothy Chi, WeddingWire’s Chief Executive Officer. “This year’s recipients have set the bar high, exhibiting excellent service and expertise in the wedding industry.”

Catherine and I would like to thank our past clients for speaking on our behalf and helping us win the 2009 Bride’s Choice Award!!!

Happy New Year to all of you! We want to thank all of our clients, family, and friends that have supported us throughout the year, as all this that we love so much would not be possible without you!

The holiday season was so busy, we hardly had a chance to wish you all a happy holiday. I feel like such a blog slacker! But it was great getting to visit with family and friends, as things were a little different for us this year and involved a bit of traveling. We hope your celebrations were great!

Now with all the festivities behind us, we are ready to rock in 2009! In the coming weeks we will be bringing up a new face to our blogs. Last year we split the portraits into their own space http://www.pinstripes-polkadots.blogspot.com/ to help our clients find stuff easier. We will keep the blogs separate, but make them a little easier to get from one to the other, as well as a whole new look.

We are also revamping our weddings and portraits websites. All new favorites from 2008 will be added as well as a revamp of some of the sections. It seems like we never get to this during the year as we are so busy making sure we take care of our clients.

We are almost 50% booked for 2009 already! We tend to fall in love with our couples, and whether big or small, all our weddings are awesome! We cant wait for our weddings coming up in 2009, and we would love to capture your wedding for you too! If you are considering contacting us about our wedding photography services, please do not wait too long! Even in this sluggish economy, the brides are booking and moving ahead with their wedding plans!

We will be rolling out some new offerings in 2009, so stay tuned for more info on those in the coming weeks!

It seems like some days that the world is unsure of what 2009 will bring. Whatever it brings, I can tell you that we are ready to rock in 2009! Come along and rock with us!
