meet the napiers
heY There! we are Napier Portrait Collective.
Napier Portrait Collective is composed of Davis & Jamie Napier. We've been married for nearly two years and it's safe to say we're obsessed with corgis and going on taco & ice cream dates! We both love being on the road and traveling to exciting and new places, while listening to the best music ever, of course -- current obsessions: the Hamilton soundtrack & Lord Huron. We love nothing more than (extroverted side) meeting new people and being in community with friends and (introverted side) snuggling up together watching parks & rec for a little while.
Now that you know a little more about our dorkiness, we are wedding and couples photographers & storytellers with the goal of capturing the big and the small joy-filled moments of those in love. Our desire as photographers (and your new friends!) is to help you to feel like you can be your authentic self in front of our cameras. We both understand how daunting it can be, and we will help to direct you in a way that allows your personality to shine through, to get to those real and intimate moments that we're all here for! We want to get to know you and your story so that we can provide images that scream, 'this is US!'
We are absolutely humbled and honored to have the opportunity to tell your story through our creative outlet that the Lord has gifted us. Working together as husband and wife can be challenging at times, yet oh so rewarding. The friendships that have been cultivated with our clients along the way has been the greatest reward. Learning how to work as a team that is cohesive, efficient, and flexible and the growth that has come from that has also been a great reward.
All of this to say, we'd love to sit down with you and get to know you over coffee/tea, ice cream, or whatever you fancy! Our mission is to know our clients better to give them photos that they will cherish forever, and we mean that. If we sound like we would be a good fit for you and your love, drop us a line! We'd love to hear from you and start our friendship from there! <3
Here's a brief history of our photo journey, if you're into that sort of thing:
Napier Portrait Collective is composed of husband & wife duo, Davis and Jamie Napier. Prior to creating Napier Portrait Collective, Jamie photographed for her own company, Jamie Stricklin Photography, for over 7 years, photographing everything from weddings, to senior portraits, to high school proms, to corgi portraits, to Arkansas Razorback football, and everything in between! Through their seasons of dating and engagement, Davis started assisting Jamie in photographing weddings and became passionate and eager to learn and practice photography. After getting married in May of 2016, Jamie Stricklin Photography was modified to something that represented both of them in this new & exciting (!!!) season of life.
