Becca’s Fall 2017 Internship Experience

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[...]

Olivia and Andrew Raleigh, NC Film Wedding Part 1
Whenever I photograph the wedding of a dear friend, I get extra excited. Whenever I photograph the wedding of another amazing photographer, I get extra nervous. Whenever I photograph the wedding of someone on the NRP Team, I get crazy nervous-excited. I had the joy and honor of photographing Olivia and Andrew's incredible wedding this past October. It was lovely [...]

Olivia and Andrew Raleigh, NC Rehearsal Dinner

Olivia and Andrew Raleigh, NC Rehearsal Dinner
I LOVE surprises. And the best thing about this Rehearsal and Dinner? Olivia had no idea I was coming! I was so sneaky arriving in the parking lot - I made sure I had all my equipment loaded up just right, and as I approached the rehearsal, I felt like I had to tiptoe across the grass. A few others saw me first, but then Olivia caught my eye. I knew she would be ex[...]

The WHY Behind a Team& our Top 5 Team Resources

The WHY Behind a Team
It was 2012, and Will and I were sitting across from each other in a coffee shop, discussing the big-picture future of Nancy Ray Photography. We were at a crossroad, trying to decide if we wanted to stay the “husband - wife team” route that most photographers took, or if we wanted to take a risk and hire associate photographers to form a team. We were nervous, and [...]

Olivia’s NRP Journey

Olivia's NRP Journey
I know this is a totally cheesy thing to say, but I honestly still find it hard to believe that THIS is my job. If you had told me 5 years ago that this is where I would be, what I would be doing, and who I would be doing it with; I would never have believed you. I often get asked how I became a part of the #NRPteam and I am forever clarifying that I am not, and have [...]

The Journey of Nancy Ray Photography Part 2
2013 Caroline and I hosted Branches and Light in Texas, and it was stunning! Truly, it was one of the most beautiful experiences we’ve had. Shortly after, I checked off a big business dream: getting featured by Martha Stewart Weddings. In March, I had the privilege of speaking at Making Things Happen in Chapel Hill, which I’ve been speaking at every year since for [...]

The Most Surprising Effect of Our Internship Program

The Most Surprising Effect of Our Internship Program
6 years ago, I was completely overwhelmed. I finally stopped long enough to realize that I needed help in the studio, and I hired my first intern (link to “meet robin blogpost). I’m not gonna lie - it was incredibly helpful! I got more done and was less stressed because I had help. But this internship program has turned into not only a helpful resource for our studio,[...]
