We are so thrilled to welcome sweet Olivia to our NRP Team! We've been spending a lot of time with her over the past 2 months as she made it through all 7 interviews and has spent much time in the studio training. Her demeanor is sweet and uplifting, she is passionate about wedding photography, she loves Jesus, she loves people, and she is the perfect fit for our team!
Olivia is our new Associate Wedding Photographer. She will be accepting weddings that will take place this fall, and her full portfolio and online gallery will be available for viewing this summer when we launch an updated site. Until then, she will be spending as much time with us as possible! In the studio, at sessions, at weddings, you name it. We are so excited her future here at NRP! We've interviewed her for the blog, so you all can get to know her a bit better.

What is your name?
Olivia Grace Wolf
Where are you from?
I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia, but I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina when I was pretty young and it has been home ever since!
Where are you in school?
I am currently a student at East Carolina University, Go pirates!!
Why do you love photography?
Life moves so incredibly fast, and I have always loved being able to look at a picture and take myself back to that exact instant. Photographs allow people to hold on to still moments long after the moment has passed and I have dreamed about creating these memories for others since I can remember.
What are you passionate about?
Coffee shops, my family, my faith in Christ, healthy eating, to-do lists, the beach, forgiveness, and creating memories.
What is your favorite non-photography blog?
A Piece of Toast
What is your favorite food?
Zucchini nut bread
Who is your favorite music artist?
Ben Rector, Gavin Degraw, James Taylor, and Tim Mcgraw…this was my narrowed down list…I’m a sucker for music.
Your favorite hobbies?
Running, coffee dates, and perusing around Fresh Market.
What is your favorite treat? (dessert, etc)
Coke Icee, even when it is freezing cold outside!
What are you grateful for today?
Today I am grateful for quiet mornings. I love being up a little before I need to be and having time in the morning to worship. Before starting a busy day with lots of people I am thankful that I get time with just Jesus and myself.
What is your current favorite book?
I have yet to find a book that knocks Redeeming Love off the top of my list, however, recommendations are welcome!
What do you love about a wedding?
I love when the bride and groom get to see each other for the first time; whether it is a first look, or when the bride begins walking down the aisle. All at once you can see a wave of excitement and peace come over both the bride and groom and none of what has happened during the day prior to that moment matters anymore.
Where would we find you on a Friday night?
On a Friday night you could probably find me one of two places, either watching a movie with my boyfriend, Andrew. After being apart all week, since we go to different schools, we like to unwind from the week together. If I am not there, then we have probably gone out for Mexican food!
What’s something that no one knows about you?
I have always wanted to create my own magazine, not exactly sure what it would be about, but it has always amazed me how powerful words can be.
