Southern Weddings Annual Team Summit

Southern Weddings Annual Team Summit
If you have followed along with Nancy Ray Photography for a while, you know we are big fans of the ladies at Southern Weddings. We love their heart and mission for the wedding industry, we love that they love all things southern, and we have even come know and love these ladies individually as friends. This year I had the honor of photographing their annual Team Summi[...]

Whitney and Corey Crestwood Inn Film Wedding

Whitney and Corey Crestwood Inn Film Wedding
Whitney and Corey's wedding day was unlike any wedding day that I had ever experienced in all of the best ways. Whitney always envisioned an outdoor wedding ceremony and dinner, so her guests could experience the beauty of the North Carolina mountains that the two of them love so much. As we got closer and closer to their wedding day, the weather forecast was showing [...]

Southern Weddings + Framebridge
If you get the chance to visit my home in person, or see my home tour, you'll know that our home is filled to the brim with images from our wedding weekend! I've decided that it's impossible to have too many wedding pictures displayed in your home. They stand as an everyday reminder as we walk through the rooms of our home of the day that we committed our lives to eac[...]

Southern Weddings Fruitful Summer Feature
Getting to work with the gals at Southern Weddings is always such a treat. They have an incredible work ethic, but always seem to have so much fun while doing it. Recently I had the privilege of photographing the SW gals while they enjoyed a fruitful summer day!  This year Southern Weddings has joined the Lara Casey Shop in participating in #fruitfulsummer. They have[...]

Southern Weddings V8 Print Features

Southern Weddings V8 Print Features
Southern Weddings Magazine has a very special place in our hearts, especially mine since my wedding was featured in Volume 7. This volume was also pretty special to our team because Nancy, Olivia, and I all contributed to the magazine in different ways! It's not very often that we all get to participate in something together and we are incredibly honored to have been [...]

Love Preserved Behind the Scenes

Love Preserved Behind the Scenes
There are few things more beautiful than the North Carolina countryside. Fields full of growing crops, spring trees all in bloom, and not to mention the sweetest old couple who took "southern hospitality" to a whole new level. It was a day filled with lots of hustle and bustle from each of the amazing vendors along with some good front porch conversations. And we can'[...]

Southern Newlywed: Planning a Staycation

Southern Newlywed: Planning a Staycation
Behind Christmas, the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday! The water, sweet treats, sparklers and delicious hamburgers are just a few things that always remind me of this summer celebration. Whether you are headed to the beach, like Jamie and me, or planning a local staycation, the Fourth of July is a time to spend with the people that you love and celebrate this wo[...]

Happy SW Week!

Happy SW Week!
It comes out TOMORROW, y'all. Get ready to head over to your local Target, Barnes and Noble, or yes - even Piggly Wiggly to pick up your very own copy. You could also guarantee to have one land in your mailbox if you simply order from the Southern Weddings Online Shop (which is my personal favorite, because it often comes with a hand written thank you note!) Th[...]

Whitney & Nick Wedding

Whitney & Nick Wedding
I looked forward to Whitney and Nick's wedding celebration since the day I met them, and my excitement continued to unfold over the months getting to know them. First, I learned they were getting married at one of my favorite venues - Lowndes Grove Plantation. Then, as I photographed their engagement session, I discovered how genuine and kind this couple was. They[...]

Southern Surcees • V6
This year, I had the joy of photographing Southern Weddings Magazine's Southern Surcees for the second time! (See V5's Surcees here, where my great dane Winston made his famous debut!)  I arrived at the Southern Weddings Office to photograph all of these lovelies, and our day went a little something like this: ••• • Arrive with Callie, begin to setup. All th[...]
