A long, long time ago at the University of Central Arkansas, a boy met a girl and they became dates to all the greek life formals & semi-formals.

Fast forward a few months, and suddenly the boy had been replaced as the go-to date and was forced to find a new date (read: drinking partner) for all the formals that were going on.

A bitter start to a wedding blog? Perhaps. But that’s how things were seen from my perspective when these two lovebirds got together all those years ago during our time as undergrads at UCA. Looking back, I’m not as salty now as I was then. Sure, my drinking partner got stolen (The Party Bus was never the same without Allison) but I got over it (and forced Cody to let me still hang out with Allison at formals anyway #thirdwheelin).

There are a lot of honors that come along with being a wedding photographer, but being asked by these two was nothing short of the biggest honor of 2017. When a wedding photography duo like Cody and Allison Photography trust you, the pressure is on.

Cody and I were fraternity brothers and I’ve been there since the launch of his career. Since then I’ve seen him transform into this amazingly talented wedding photographer, and I’ve gotten to watch Allison blossom into a loving wife, and wonderful business partner for Cody, and a great mom to their fur child, Baxter the Boston Terrier (who used to have a larger instagram following than I do… what the hell?). Documenting this day was nothing short of an honor for me, and it is one of my favorites I have ever gotten to do so for.

Their wedding was April 1, 2017 at the beautiful Meadow Hill Farm outside of Nashville, TN. The space is insanely gorgeous and was decorated head to toe by the design team at Ninth & Everett.

I consider myself blessed to be doing what I love every weekend, but even more blessed when I get to work with amazing people like Cody & Allison.
