As a wedding planning team it is critical that we have a photographer that is highly technically skilled. We know that when we are working with Nancy Ray Photography that we are going to have stunning photos whether it is a bright outdoor ceremony, an indoor space lacking natural light, or in the middle of a Hurricane (it has happened twice!). Photography is so much more than just a pretty photo in the optimal setting, it is being able to capture those moments that our clients treasure no matter what the environment is throwing our way. NRP always delivers exceptional photos!!

Oh my word!!! My family, Zach and I are all in tears reliving this day! I couldn’t ask for it to be captured more beautifully. What a dream and blessing it is to have these incredible images! We can’t wait to print and line our walls with such precious memories. I don’t have enough words to say! So grateful for you, Callie and all that you have blessed us with. My heart legitimately aches with joy and thankfulness writing this - I hope you know the impact you made on our day! (Even our families are in love with y'all) Thank you thank you thank you!

Olivia was amazing. I had guests coming up to me telling me how great she was and all I could say was "I KNOW!" She's that fabulous. Service was outstanding, professionalism - phenomenal, demeanor profession but fun and lighthearted (and exactly what I needed). I had multiple guests ask if she was my wedding planner because she was so on top of things! I cannot praise NRP and Olivia enough. Our wedding was so perfect, but Olivia and the NRP Team made it even more than I could have dreamed. I appreciate every aspect - but I appreciate the heart and passion of NRP the most. That isn't something you get with every photographer or company you might book on your wedding day. You can tell that everyone at Nancy Ray loves what they do and who they do it for and that makes all the difference in the world. I formed friendships from my experience with NRP that I wouldn't trade for the world! NRP isn't just photography, it's family.

Having Nancy as our wedding photographer was such a joy and blessing on our wedding day, as well as throughout our season of engagement. She is so very kind, genuine, and an incredibly talented film photographer. She is a friend the moment you meet her and makes you feel so comfortable while in front of the camera. One thing that can’t go unnoticed is truly how well she cares about her couples – it leaves a lasting impression on you!
Nancy founded this business 10 years ago in the guest bedroom of her tiny newlywed apartment. She has photographed over 150 weddings, grew NRP into a photography team, has been featured in some of the top wedding magazines in the US. She has spoken at the Making Things Happen Conference, The Pursuit Conference, The Return to Rest Retreat, and The School of Styling Workshop. Her good list: singing loudly in church, finishing a book, crossing the finish line at a half marathon, snuggling with her girls, date nights with Will, and teaching others all about how to live life wholeheartedly with intention.
