Kelsey and Tom Durham, NC Film Wedding
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelo This is the quote that the Father of Bride shared during his toast to the newly married couple and I think that it embodies this celebratory day. From the very beginning, Kelsey and Tom kept their guests at the top[...]

2018 Nancy Ray Book Club

2018 Nancy Ray Book Club
It’s back! It’s back! In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, 2 years ago in 2016, I set out to re-read the top 12 most life-changing books I’ve ever read for my 30th year. I called it the Nancy Ray Book Club. It was a lot of work, and a lot of great accountability. I decided not to host the book club in ‘17 because I knew I was having a baby, and I kn[...]

Darden and Elliot Raleigh, NC Film Engagement Session

Darden and Elliot Raleigh, NC Film Engagement Session
These two. Darden and Elliot. First of all, can we just talk about how amazing their names are?

Darden is so sweet and so beautiful. She's the kind of girl who doesn't need any make up and is sti[...]

Becca's Fall 2017 Internship Experience
This year the NRP Team was blessed with 3 amazing interns (read about Anna and Izzy). Without these ladies, we would not have accomplished everything that we did this year. Anna was with us during our first course launch, Izzy was loyal and hardworking during Nancy's maternity leave and Becca graciously worked on big projects like constructing and sending all of our c[...]

Liz and William Durham, NC Film Engagement Session

Liz and William Durham, NC Film Engagement Session
Before meeting up with Liz and William, I had not even had a phone conversation with them. This is always sort of exciting for me, because I don't know what to expect, and I am eager to get to know this new couple. When I arrived, Liz was immediately so warm. She gave me a big bear hug and chatted with me like we were old friends. William was funny and had lots of sar[...]
