See the Difference Certified Professional Photographers Make

Consistency. CPPs know how to achieve great results—every time. You get a strong collection of images that tell your story, not a few lucky snapshots, and you will work with someone who knows how to produce a quality image under any circumstances.
 
Technical Skills. CPPs are more than picture takers. They are students of art, lighting, posing, fashion and even interior design. They combine these elements to create images that fit your unique style and become works of art you will treasure for generations.
 
Unique Artistry. CPPs have the skills to create unique, customized works of art—not cookie-cutter pictures. They follow an artistic vision. It’s your story captured as a collection of art.
 
Professionalism. When you hire a CPP, you know you're getting someone who is willing to go the extra mile to deliver the best possible images. They are business owners who thrive on customer service and satisfaction, and they continuously aim to produce products that exceed your—and their—best expectations. These images are keepsakes whose stories you'll tell time and time again and treasure forever.
 
Just about anyone can take a good picture every now and then. But when life's biggest moments are unfolding and there's just one chance to capture that perfect memory, don't risk it. Entrust your photography needs to a Certified Professional Photographer and see the difference for yourself.

NPDP Takes Over Atlanta | Imaging 2016 | Master of Photography

For those of you that follow Nate, Teresa, Kelly or NP Design & Photography on any social media outlet, you probably noticed us out and about last month. We traveled to Atlanta for the Professional Photographers of America's Imaging Convention and Expo 2016.

Not only did we attend classes taught by industry leaders and network with other professional photographers, Nate earned his Master of Photography degree at the Degree and Awards ceremony. The Master of Photography is "awarded for superior photographic skills—demonstrated through the PPA International Photographic Competition, advanced education and service to the industry."

The images above illustrate just a few of the incredible classes we attended, people we mingled with and accomplishments we achieved. We are super excited for 2016. It's going to be a great year!
