Nallayer Studios Reyallan Thompson.  First, his studio name, Nallayer is his first name backwards, and goes perfectly with his personality.  We were introduced to each other through a client that already hired his studio.  We love his willingness to have a good time, be a professional all while capturing some amazing images.  What we also enjoy about working with Rayallen is the flexibility he has with working on a team, this is very important when working in the wedding industry and what led us to recommend him to our clients as a trusted vendor. 

Please describe your business and why or how you began.

Nallayer Studios is a full-service photography and videography studio focusing on weddings and couples. I infuse my clients’ personality and vision with my outstanding skills. I consider myself a journalist and an artist, combining them into one role to deliver special memories back to my clients, encapsulated for generations to come. 

My business began as an outlet for me to combine my love of technology and artistic expression. Photography is an art almost as technical as it is aesthetic. The balance of light, shadow, and focus, in addition to the creative elements of poses, color, and mood makes photography an exciting endeavor. I wanted to be my own boss and put my energy and entrepreneurial mind to good use. I’m proud of the relationships I’ve built with my clients and the quality of work I deliver–and my business reviews attest to that!

Describe one new trend that you have incorporated within your product and, or service offering?

In the past few years there’s been a growing interest in freeing photos from a computer and instead printing them physically so they can be viewed or touched. Albums are a popular way to do this and are available to all my clients. I offer top-of-the-line quality leather bound albums, photo books, and prints. Weddings have so many beautiful intricate details that are planned out months in advance; it’s both fun and important to me to capture the little things so that they can be immortalized in an album.

Please list and explain one skill set that you excel at related to your business. 

I prioritize and excel at communication. In each session, I develop an environment that builds natural rapport between myself and the subjects, giving clients the creative freedom to be who they are. I have a naturally outgoing personality, so I will get you laughing and having a good time, even if you hate the idea of getting your photo taken. At a wedding, you can always find me in the thick of the action. I thrive in high-energy environments. Taking charge and giving good direction has always been my strength, so that helps a lot when dealing with those huge group family photos at weddings. I’m continually looking for that epic shot and when I find it you will be sure to know by my excitement and joy.

How would you describe your design or creative process for producing your end product? 

I enjoy digging deep to understand my client’s needs, vision, and purpose. Each project is a new opportunity to create magic so I put my skills and knowledge to work producing a collection of images clients are proud to show off.
