It’s a Major Award!

And this one is not F.R.A.G.I.L.E!

2009 Bride's Choice Awards presented by WeddingWire | Wedding Cakes, Wedding Venues, Wedding Photographers & More

Stacey Vaeth Photograpy has won the 2009 Bride’s Choice Awards!

In its inaugural year, the Bride’s Choice Awards recognizes and honors vendors that demonstrate excellent quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value of cost and flexibility. Stacey Vaeth Photography has been recognized for these qualities, and ranked in the top three percent of the over 100,000 wedding vendors in the Wedding Wire community.

Unlike other awards in which the company selects winners, exclusively recent newlyweds determine the Bride’s Choice Awards.

“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.”

Thank you so much to all of you who spoke on our behalf and helped us win the 2009 Bride’s Choice Award!

I thought I was a photographer….

But lately it appears I am actually a web designer and accountant. Which wouldn’t be a bad thing, because see I think that those two career tracks definitely would be a bit more stable, because, see, well everyone has to do taxes, and companies pay a lot for websites, and, and, oh, who am I kidding, I would be miserable…

So back to the subject at hand. Despite that fact that my photo eye is cramped and cloudy and a bit mopey because it is camped out in front of the computer … i am thrilled, thrilled! to share with you my new website. The trouble was worth it and now i even know what color FFFFFF stands for (in RGB). Which i am sure will be very handy.

So, head on over to to check out the new site – it’s supersized. My web designer hat was fun for a while, but nowhere near as fun as my photographer hat. The accountant hat, well, we won’t go there. And don’t worry, no accounting posts in the near future.

Here’s a few shots from my one saving grace this past week – a fun shoot at one of my favorite restaurants, Vermillion…..thanks Kevin, Dave and Tony!
