MEET Maddie

Summertime South Congress Hotel Wedding | Callie + Grayson

We can all say that it’s been quite the year. We can also all say that none of us know what’s going to happen next at this point and Callie and Grayson can definitely concur. These two were set to be married this October, but since the world continues to be unpredictable… they decided to switch things up and get married sooner rather than later! Let me tell you that Callie’s sweet mama, Amy, got…

We can all say that it’s been quite the year. We can also all say that none of us know what’s going to happen next at this point and Callie and Grayson can definitely concur. These two were set to be married this October, but since the world continues to be unpredictable… they decided to switch things up and get married sooner rather than later! Let me tell you that Callie’s sweet mama, Amy, got the ball rolling on this big change and it worked beautifully because I have the pictures to prove it!

Cody and I love all of our couples. New and old. Past and present. But these Corona couples… man there’s just a different kind of relationship we form with them during this weird time. I get nervous on every wedding day. I want to do my best job for our brides and grooms, but during this time where our couples are constantly stressed, sacrificing, missing family members, and hitting more obstacles than you can probably imagine… I am constantly telling Cody that I want to a better job than I ever have before. The weight of what photography really means seems to matter even more than it did before.. at least in my mind!

Callie and Grayson’s wedding day shifted dramatically. New wedding dress because production was halted on Callie’s first pick. New color scheme. New season. New venue in a new city. Cutting a guest list by a lot more than half. No official bridal party pictures. Changes that would make any girl feel defeated, but you know what? This wasn’t plan B to Callie. This was her wedding day. No matter what changes were made, I can tell that she was just happy to marry Grayson and Grayson was just happy to marry Callie. Isn’t the marriage part what a wedding is all about? So I’ll be positive here and say thanks COVID for showing us what really matters!

In a small, beautifully decorated room at the South Congress Hotel, their family and friends shared the most heartfelt speeches. We got to learn a little bit more about the kindhearted and loving people Callie and Grayson are. We learned that their families are pretty darn hilarious and so full of love. Sometimes in marriage, you not only need to lean on each other, but you also need a village. Callie and Grayson? Well they have a good, good village.

I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from this gorgeous and intimate wedding day! Meet Mr. & Mrs. Norris!

"Maddie’s ability to capture the beauty and innocence of love and life is truly a God-given talent. She is always fun and easy going even when dealing with stressed out parents and wild toddlers. Every time we’ve gotten our pictures back there’s moments she has captured that I never even saw."

"Her work is priceless - you will be blessed by her talents!"

Sierra and Hunter

Choosing Maddie for our wedding pictures was hands down the BEST decision! She is not only AMAZING at what she does, but you can tell through her work that is her passion! She is a joy to work with and her energy makes everyone excited about taking pictures (even my stubborn honey had a great time)!

"We had a blast during our time with her, which made it easy for her to capture US!"

MADDIE and Zachary

"She guides the shoot and makes it about whoever the subject is with such comfort and ease. I never doubted her and we have beautiful pictures to prove it!! I truly enjoyed our shoot and I hope we have more in the future."

"Maddie has a wonderful personality!"
