THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS, Y’ALL!

This is where you see us all sweaty, standing in funky positions to get THE shot, holding one another up so we don’t fall over, doing whatever it takes.

This is where I’m all smiles and even a little teary looking at this team who loves this work as much as I do.

This is where we get blisters and we stay up late and we love our couples and families with all that is in us.

This is behind the scenes, 2016. Enjoy!

Elizabeth: This was the first wedding I second shot for Olivia and I loved it so much. She’s a natural leader who takes command, serves her brides, and handles each detail in the day with such grace!

Nancy: One of my favorite pictures of my husband ever. Sorry ladies… he’s taken.

Callie: I have no idea what made me laugh so hard, but apparently Kasey (behind the camera) said something really funny

Yes: #nrptopknots is a thing! 

Elizabeth: Nancy, Callie and Olivia rock the top knots like little bosses. All the time. I may be a little jelly about that… my top knot is straight up embarrassing. You will not find me in that hashtag.

Callie: I just love this picture. This is real life y’all. We truly do WHATEVER to get the shot. 

Elizabeth: I remember this moment well. Looking over that ledge and seeing Sweet Annie… just working hard to keep Callie from face planting on some brick with her body weight. NBD.

Callie: I love Elizabeth’s expression in this one. She is clearly putting a lot of good thought into what we’re seeing.

Elizabeth: I literally have no idea.

Callie: Ian was a groomsmen in Lindsey and Anthony’s wedding, and he even caught the garter! I had so much fun photographing Lauren and Ian’s wedding and seeing these past clients!

Callie: This is one of my all time favorite behind the scene pictures! Ankle deep in water, soaking wet with the biggest smile at Alexandria and Michael’s wedding during Hurricane Matthew!

Olivia: Out of everything I have photographed, I think this might be my favorite image I have ever taken.

Elizabeth: I love that I see this and think “completely normal.”

Callie: I just want to take a second to point out that Elizabeth is taking a picture all while holding another lens and blocking the sun with her body. She’s a rockstar!

Elizabeth: #multitasking #coordination #strategy

Olivia: This picture brings me to tears. I have so much love for this girl. In this moment she is photographing a letter from my sweet husband to me on my wedding day. Nancy worked so hard that day, calming all my nerves as a best friend and capturing every moment in between, AND she still managed to “get down with her bad self ” on the dance floor!

Callie: Amanda attended Danielle and Alex’s wedding in 2015 and it was such a joy to see them again at Amanda and Zac’s wedding!

Olivia: This picture cracks me up, because I look like I am totally lounging, but I distinctly remember being so frustrated until I got the shot I was wanting!

Olivia: Rachel and Kevin always make my heart skip a beat. They were just as dreamy and in love as their Spanish Moss filled wedding!

Olivia: This picture. Elizabeth is so talented…and see that little blurred out family?? They are extra special too! 

nrp-callie-amazacwed-3209

Olivia: Callie, always with the tip toes or pointed toes! Natural born gymnast turned photographer. 

Elizabeth: I wish I had a nickel for every time I saw Callie’s tippy toe or pointy toe stance.

Nancy: Love this shot that Will grabbed of me from inside a church window!

Olivia: I also love sweet Annie off to the side probably being her sweet self, or talking to some little kids!
