The WeddingWire Bride's Choice awards recognizes the best local wedding vendors who demonstrate quality and service excellence within the wedding industry.
Unlike other awards, in which the winners are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Bride's Choice awards are determined by the quality, quantity and consistency of reviews from more than 1.2 million WeddingWire newlyweds.
The 2012 award recipients represent the top 5 percent of the WeddingWire community, which consists of more than 200,000 wedding professionals throughout the United States and Canada.
To be named a "Bride's Choice," award winner, Harper Studios was selected as one of the best Wedding Photographers in the United States. Only the top 5 percent of wedding photographers in the country awarded a "Bride's Choice" award.
Tony Harper, owner and chief photographer at Harper Studios, was surprised by the award.
"This is not something you can apply for or a contest a studio enters," Harper said. "This was out of the blue. The 'Bride's Choice' award is based upon quality, service and satisfied brides. Harper Studios is truly honored to receive this recognition.
"We strive to provide the best wedding photography at a rate that fits most brides' budgets. This award proves you do not have to go outside of Brazil to get excellent photography and service. Our brides are happy."
