Best of 2016 | Nashville Wedding Photographer
Best of 2016 / Nashville Wedding Photographer
Dang, what a year 2016 has been. I warn you that this will be a pretty long post so just sit tight and grab some pizza!
2016 was a year or learning. It was a year of figuring out what we really wanted this business to be. It was a year of gaining some of the best friends ever. As most people know, Allison has a job other than photography that she absolutely loves. I had actually moved to Nashville to be with her when she accepted her new job. I was going to film school full time and shooting weddings on the side so I could make ends meet.
Fast forward to January 2016. I'm sitting in our parkin ...

Martha Drake & Kristian | Old Edwards Farm Wedding
Martha & Kristian | Old Edwards Farm Wedding
A beautiful fall Old Edwards Farm Wedding. // Seriously, this wedding was extremely dreamy and gave us all the feels. The Old Edwards Farm is this gorgeous venue nestled in the Mountains near Highlands, North Carolina. Highlands is your storybook town with a characteristic New England vibe!
The moment Martha Drake and Kristian reached out to us to shoot their wedding, we were ecstatic. The way they described their wedding was just dreamy. (I'll say dreamy a ton in this post. oh well!) We couldn't help but love the fall weather, the love that was super radiant from everyone and then the su ...

Matt & Amanda | Craggy Gardens Engagement
Craggy Gardens Engagement// Okay so Asheville, North Carolina rocks and so does Craggy Gardens. Man. This place is freaking magical. Between the out of this world views and extremely unique "craggy trees" as I call them, it's stupid beautiful. Meeting Matt and Amanda was basically the craziest thing ever. We literally had two different friends in the wedding industry tell us we just had to work with these two. As it turned out, we were already Facebook friends and had shared a crazy love for the band, Local Natives as well. I mean, we literally bought tickets to this concert before we ever booked them and were literally 3 feet from each other ...

Simmie & Casey | Moss Mountain Farm Wedding
Okay, can you really beat a Fall Moss Mountain Farm Wedding? We were ecstatic when these two reached out and described how they wanted their wedding to be. Moss Mountain Farm is one of the most beautiful venues we have ever shot at! No joke. And then we have Simmie and Casey who just seal the deal. We had such a wonderful day with these two and can't thank them enough for their kindness and trust. Also, Casey has a natural ability to make you pee your pants in laughter with every other line. Casey also still refuses to use Spotify over pandora despite my nagging between the engagement session and wedding
Lastly, a huge ...

Tracie & Jerid | Diablo Lake Engagement Session
Boom. Our first Diablo Lake Engagement Session.
I've been pretty much drooling over this place ever since seeing it in photos. I am so stoked that Tracie and Jerid were down for the adventure and North Cascade National Park for their session! Tracie and Jerid are easily some of the most laid back people I've ever met and we are so excited to shoot their wedding next year! It's always super rad to have that affirmation that you have booked the perfect couple as well. That affirmation came when we grabbed some chipotle after their session. That said it all.
Here are some of our favorite photos from their session!

Danielle & Kris | Anniversary Session | Washington Wedding Photographer
If you're a Washington Wedding Photographer, you have it good. Which I told Danielle at least ten times. Foggy and moody vibes for days. That's literally all we could say about this session with Danielle and Kris. I was so excited when Danielle had reached out shooting her and Kris when I came to Washington earlier this Fall! Everything worked out so I could shoot them just in time for their anniversary! Being able to go on adventure to Snoqualmie pass as soon as left the airport was nothing short of exciting! We hopped in their car and drove out to Franklin Falls while I ooed and awed at the scenery. Danielle and Kris are two incredibly kind ...

Krista & Will | Joshua Tree National Park
If you've never been to Joshua Tree National Park, you are totally missing out. For a lot of those who know us, Joshua Tree holds a special place in our hearts. It's where we got engaged last December! There are few places that I never pass up a chance to visit and this is definitely one of them!
When I found out I was going to be out in California to attend Heck Yeah Photo Camp, I hit Krista and Will up to see if they'd want to go play in the desert. Krista is an extremely talented photographer and Will is an equally talented Tattoo artist. This dynamic duo of artists are just as kind as they are talented as well. Will is also an expert a ...

Kenzie & Jason | Nashville Wedding Portraits
Nashville Wedding // This past fall, we had the awesome pleasure of getting to work with Kenzie & Jason! We knew these guys were the bee's knees after meeting them and finding out their super rad taste in music. And the awesome sense of humor and deep love for each other were super rad as well. Allison and I are definitely excited to show some portraits from their big day! Here are a few of our favorites from the day!

Jason & Amanda | Fairlane Station Wedding & Day After Session
Dang. I am so excited to share this wedding and can't believe we were lucky enough to share this big day with Jason and Amanda at Fairlane Station! I (Cody) first met Jason through a variety of photography facebook groups last year. We would talk about photography and life all together. I could instantly sense the kindness that Jason had for people and his sincerity. The way he talked about Amanda was a clear indicator of how crazy in love these two are. Later on down the road, Jason had approached me about the idea of mentoring him in photography. It was an honor to get to work with Jason and help him and Amanda grow their business. So, w ...

Nicolette & Jason | Intimate Anniversary Session | Fox House | Nashville
Nicolette and Jason are two incredibly kind souls that I am thankful to have met. It was perfect timing when I was trying to find a couple to shoot some indoor photos with and it happened that their anniversary was coming up soon! We had never offered that before and wanted to put ourselves out there and see if it's somethings we could offer in the future. Nicolette and Jason opted to drive up from Alabama and rent out Nashville's famous Fox House.
It was so great to meet these guys and shoot some rad photos for them! I was wanting to bring a new angle into our business. I wanted to offer sessions that catered to people who had started the ...

Allison & Mac | Intimate Backyard Wedding | Counce, Tennessee
There are few things we love more than an intimate backyard wedding. And this is definitely one of them! We couldn't have had a better fit of a couple to work with than Allison & Mac. There's always that nervousness of booking a wedding out of town or a couple coming from out of state. However, these guys couldn't have been more perfect. Allison & Mac are the cool couple from Colorado that take in everything about life and enjoy every second of it. They are the type of people that you meet for the first time and immediately feel welcomed. I can't speak enough about how much we loved working with these two and how excited we are to sho ...

Nashville, Tennessee | Traveler’s Rest Wedding | Adrienne & Sean
Dang, we are pretty excited to share this wedding. We first met Adrienne and Sean back in winter at Starbucks of all places. Except, there were no seats left at Starbucks. So we went next door to the Fedex copy and print store and used computer chairs to form a makeshift meeting space. After meeting these two, there was no doubt we wanted to shoot their wedding. Anyone who spoke about Adrienne and Sean at their wedding first spoke of their kindness and sincerity. From the outside looking in, we can' ...
