WHAT WE BELIEVE

nashville wedding photographers

When we first got married, we had no idea what we were doing. Of course, we knew we were having a wedding, saying our vows and taking all the rights of passage a wedding entails. However, we weren’t really sure what we were in for when we signed up for this whole life long commitment thing… 

As we entered the season of our wedding, our business was thriving however, our personal lives were not.  By the time our wedding came around, we found ourselves exhausted, burnt out in life and not being able to pinpoint why things felt so heavy. After a season of questioning nearly everything  we were greeted by the news of our pregnancy with our son, Kyler.  This forced us to come to the realization that our beliefs around love, intimacy and the purpose of relationships needed a shift. Following that, our relationship took a massive transformation for the better. We started learning how to not only love each other more intentionally but also start showing love to ourselves by making a commitment of being authentic versions of ourselves. Our marriage began to thrive when we started to make it a space of growth, encouragement and unconditional love. 

We believe that the artistic and emotional quality of your photos is ultimately determined by how you feel in those moments. How you feel is determined by the trust and comfortability you have with your photographer. We believe that trust is cultivated from the moment we meet, let our walls down and dive into each others stories. From there, we believe that by giving you space that allows the two of you to be the most raw versions of yourselves has the potential to bring you both closer together and as a result, have photos that truly reflect you. We understand how this entire season of life can be very overwhelming and leave you little time to truly connect with each other. Because of that, our entire experience was built with the intention of helping you slow down and deepening the intimacy you share.

 

ABOUT US

Life is slow for us. And we mean that in the best way possible. Among sharing our time with each other, we are also parents to our son, Kyler and other puppy child, Baxter. While Marriage has taught us the value of authenticity, becoming parents has taught us the power being fully present and cherishing each moment with the people around us. Because of this, we spend a lot of our days enjoying the little things such as playing with our son, making yummy meals, going for frequent walks and working on other small projects. While we still enjoy the occasional movie theater date or Harry Potter Marathon, we’ve also adopted a lot of new hobbies that help us expand as both individuals and a couple. We’ve also developed a deep love for travel, find it incredibly refreshing and hope to one day show our son as much of the world as we can.

Beyond that, we just simply enjoy being in the presence of good company and just to talk about life for hours. We’ve made it a goal to lead a more purposeful life and because of that, always do our best to learn from and lift up the people around us.

I’m sure there are tons of other random facts and interests we could go on about but we’ll save all that for when we meet for the first time.

You’ve heard our story and if anything we said resonated with you, we’d love to meet you both and hear your story!

Love Notes
Abbey & Jake
Our experience with Cody and Allison was amazing. We would hire them to do our engagement/wedding photos over and over again! After our engagement session, Cody and Allison weren't just photographers to us, they became our friends. We trusted them completely on our wedding day. It allowed us to relax and have fun knowing our photos would be amazing- and they were. We both have said multiple times that Cody and Allison were hands down the best decision we made when planning our wedding. They captured our memories from this special day in a way that artistically reflected our love, style, and personality as a couple.

We just want to start out by saying that working with Cody and Allison will be one of the happiest experiences of your life. They are two warm and genuinely friendly people who have a nack for making you feel comfortable in any situation so you can be sure they are capturing who you truly are. There were lots of shared laughs and lots of “WHAT THE EFF - YOU ARE A GOD BEHIND THAT CAMERA” kind of moments with them. We not only got incredible pictures and hilarious jokes but we also got so inspired by their creativity. Having Cody and Allison capture our elopement was such an uplifting experience right from the beginning.

Marisah & Steven
Not only are Cody and Allison super talented, but they really made it a priority to make a connection with us before anything else. Leading up to the wedding, they planned with us and dreamed with us, but the focus was always about who we were and our love story. Our wedding day was lighthearted and easy-going, we never felt hurried into anything. Full of jokes and a really personable character, they had us and our entire bridal party in tears laughing — we still have family members who talk about them! During our second day shoot we felt like we were with a longtime friend of ours and before we knew it we were celebrating over some really good tacos. These two are the real deal and we honestly couldn’t feel more blessed to have had the best of the best capture our love.
