Once an #nrpintern, always an #nrpintern. Each time that we say goodbye to our interns, it’s bittersweet. We’re of course so sad to see them go, but we’re also so excited for what’s to come for them, and we definitely feel this way about sweet, Kate. During her internship, she packed for more weddings (17 to be exact with three double wedding weekends and two triple weddings weekends) and assisted at more weddings (10) than any other intern. She helped us pack up our studio for the move, supported us emotionally during all of our personal home renovations, taught us about simple living and reducing waste, and encouraged us by the way that she lives with open hands, fully trusting in The Lord’s plan. At her celebration breakfast on the last day of her internship with us, in different ways we all expressed to her that she is committed. She was a committed intern, jumping head first into one of our busiest wedding seasons yet with a joyful and servant’s attitude every single day. She was committed to finishing school and staying true to her word even though her path may have changed throughout the process. She is a committed and incredibly supportive wife to her husband who is currently deployed. She is strong and meek and wise, and we love her so much! I’m so excited for you to hear more about what she gained during her internship with us.
If you had told me a year ago that I would be writing this blog post, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. In fact, I would’ve been more likely to say, “That sounds nice but there is NO way I will ever do weddings. Not a chance.” Honestly, a year ago I wasn’t even sure if photography was “my thing.” But then last fall, something happened. I saw a wedding photography post and the wheels in my head started turning. What if? But that was crazy talk and you can’t just jump right into weddings. I remember telling my husband and my sister shortly after the seed was planted in my mind that if I saw Nancy Ray post the internship again this year, I would apply with no expectations of actually getting it (but also hoping to test the waters on this whole wedding dream). Well, God answered that prayer and now, in the words of Scotty McCreery, I wish I could have just five more minutes.
