My Photog on The Knot Best Photogs of 2010!

Great news! My photographer Seth David and his team were awarded one of the Best Photographers in New Jersey of 2010 by The Knot. I believe that the magazine will be published Jan. 22, 2010.

    Didn't someone say on here once that The top picks on here are normally because they pay for advertising, etc?  Is that true? Or is this different?

    i'm pretty sure places like bella, and the photog. you find listed in ads when you search on theknot for reviews are paying customers. i have no idea how bella would get an award or the pros considering they both suckit.  however, i do know many places locally, including my bridal salon and DJ, who had knot pick awards and they do NOT advertise here... so it must be a contest of sorts.

    (still means nadda to me... every vendor had to prove themselves and having an award or not didn't make an inkling of difference)

    Apparently it is based on surveys filled out by knottie brides after their weddings.  I think I was sent a link at some point to fill out the survey (and it wouldn't work and then expired -- sorry awesome vendors o'mine!).

    But as it is just based on surveys of people who used them, I don't see how it is so different from having several 5-star reviews on weddingwire or yelp.  Which lots of vendors have.  And it seems like some not great vendors slip through the Best of the Knot cracks (for example, http://www.cuttingedgedjs.com/blog/2009/04/21/untying-the-knot/), or Bella and such as Allie points out.

    With things like photography where talent is so important, I personally kind of think that the opinions of other pros are more valuable than surveys based on the A++++++++++s that brides here give to all of their vendors (unless you're talking about things like WPJA awards -- they give away so many of those that *I* could probably win one in some category or another).

    But it is nice to know that other brides had good experiences with your vendors.

    Honestly, the "best of the Knot" awards don't seem to be very hard to earn. I think they give the award to everyone that advertises on here and then some.
    They have vendors that are known to suck.
    I think if people really want to know what brides think of vendors they should go on wedding wire or project wedding.

    Chels, your photog was also voted Best of 2010 and it's not based on advertising (he doesn't advertise) and will be featured in Jan. also :)

    Don't get caught up with awards...

    Just about meaningless in my opinion.

    Also, you have to wonder what the criteria was that the knot used to judge?   If it was on skill, who are they to judge?

    Anyhow, prime example is Tif's photographer, arguably one of the best in the nation, and has awards (from legit places) to prove it), but so what, the guy can take good pictures......thats only half of it and what Tif later found out when it came to delivering a final package and customer service.

    Do your own homework and look at many samples (actual albums) as websites are typically the best ~50 pictures out of thousands taken (which me or you can easily do to).
