About

The only way to tell the entire story...is to be there for the entire story. For all the moments. So, every couple I work with gets beginning-to-end, unlimited, all-day coverage for their wedding day. From the start at the salon that morning to the very last dance of the reception. And sometimes a little after that, even.

I'm very lucky; I get to make a living doing what I love. And I get to meet, come to know, and work with a lot of great couples. I enjoy being an engaged partner in their wedding so that when we get to the wedding day they are really comfortable with me.

My approach: my job on your wedding day is to document the emotions and moments of the day with great images, and to do whatever I can to help make it your best day ever. I have almost no rules and will do just about anything for my clients.

That includes travel. If your wedding is anywhere in the lower 48, I usually don't charge any travel charges. And if you are up for shooting an engagement session off the beaten path...I am up for that. I've shot weddings and engagement sessions in places like Yosemite National Park, the Tetons, San Francisco, Portland, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Times Square, Washington DC, Colorado, Ireland, Iceland, Florida, upstate New York, and Las Vegas.

Interested? Contact me! Questions are free! And I enjoy meeting new people, even if they don't end up being my clients.

Absolutely an amazing soul to work with. Makes you feel so comfortable in yourself with every photo. Always responded timely and was active in every step of the way to insure we would get the photos we wanted. I would highly recommend for any and all events that require such amazing quality and quantity of photography!!

Best photographer ever!

Cody was brilliant! I could not recommend him enough. I’m usually very camera anxious and hate my picture being taken so having a photographer follow me around for an entire day would typically be my nightmare. However, Cody made me so comfortable and was such a calming energy. I LOVE how our photos turned out and my husband and I look so natural and fantastic in every picture! My only complaint it how I’m going to be able to decide which ones to frame for my walls…I may need more walls!

The best of the best!!

10/5 stars! From the first interaction with Cody, it wasn't like any other vendor we have worked with. Cody loves what he does and truly cares about his clients, and it showed from the beginning to the end.. and we mean END! (because he was one of the last people at the venue!) When looking for a photographer, we didn't know where to start, but we did know that we wanted someone from the beginning of the day until the very end. We also knew that we wanted options with pictures and boy does Cody exceed both of these things. Cody is very knowledgeable and actually listens to what we wanted and to our vision. He provides ideas and goes above and beyond for the best shot.. and you will know what we mean when you see him lying on the ground, moving things around, climbing on things, etc. He truly is the best! He made the entire experience seamless and stress-free for us, from start to finish. Cody has exceptional customer service and goes above and beyond for his clients. He communicates with you throughout the entire process and is always available when we had questions. The amount of time and pictures he took for us was exceptional and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. The photo box that holds the USB and the customized photo book was such a nice bonus too! We were SO LUCKY to have been able to have him on our special day. If you are looking for THE photographer, stop looking and start booking! Cody is your guy!!! Thank you again, Cody, our day would not have been as special without you you! XOXO The Bunting's!
