New Orleans Wedding Photographer | Race & Religious Wedding

It’s really hard to sum up such an incredible experience of working with two amazing souls. We’d even venture to say that Madeline and Sam are two of the most genuine and fun people we’ve met!

These two met while teaching in Taiwan a few years back and instantly became best friends. They were some of the only two english speaking teachers and bonded over sharing a few beers, riding vespas around Taiwan and talking about life. Sam is originally from New Zealand and had actually been living there while Madeline was living in the US. Other than Skype calls and the occasional visit to each other, these two were really on that long distance dealio.

Fast forward to last year… Sam is working on getting his visa and getting to the states to start their life together. When Sam moved to America from New Zealand, he had to sell all of his guitars and worldly possessions to be able to move and start their new life together in New Orleans. Music is a big part of Sam’s life, so it was important for Madeline to be able to show him her appreciation for all of his sacrifices for their relationship so she decided to surprise him with a new guitar that was hiding right near Sam during their letter reading and first touch! She actually mentioned it was a gift for her too because she loves to hear him play!

Then comes the wedding day! It was definitely a weekend of genuine warmth, tears and just all the relaxed vibes that anyone could ask for on their wedding weekend. As a photographer, all you can ever hope for is for the two people you’re following around all day is to be relaxed and be present. Needless to say, it was a blast to watch these two have the time of their lives with all of their favorite people!

A huge thank you to these two for allowing us to share in this weekend as well and to all the incredible vendors that made it happen!

Hey, it's us!

Hey there! We are Cody & Allison; Nashville Wedding Photographers. A few years ago, our lives drastically shifted and left us questioning almost everything from our careers as wedding photographers all the way to our marriage. This led us down a path of personal growth and that's when we discovered two key ingredients of happiness...to continually be true to ourselves and to spend time with the things and people that we love. That's when we realized our cameras are simply tools to deepen the intimacy and self confidence of our couples. Relationships are at the heart of why we do what we do and our biggest intention is in providing an experience that is beyond just the transaction of getting paid to show up and take a few nice photos. You deserve more than that.
