Family Fall Photos | Nashville Family Photographer by Cody Emberton

Family photos don’t have to be stressful. Just one outfit that has coordinating but contrasting colors and throw in some pretty light? You’ve got yourself a great session. I loved getting to work with these darlings and their sweet babies! That golden sun with those beautiful late summer/early fall color palette? I’m living for it!

Ryanne & Matt | Vegas Elopement | Vegas Wedding Photographer by Cody Emberton

I knew from the moment I met Ryanne at Dinos Dive Bar in East Nashville she and Matt were cool people. We had grilled cheese and talked photos with Three Six Mafia playing in the background. I love people who are so easy going.

So when we were running behind for photos on their wedding day, it was no big deal. We just pulled over where the sun was shining just right. We celebrated there with a quick smoke & drink. We had dinner at In N Out in true west coast fashion. Followed by saying I Do with Elvis officiating a beautiful ceremony. Heres the highlights from Ryanne & Matt’s Vegas Elopement.

Rachel & Brandon | Zion National Park Engagement | Utah Wedding Photographer by Cody Emberton

For Rachel & Brandon we decided to meet in Zion National Park for their engagement session. I was on my yearly south west/ California trip when I stopped to meet them. At the time Zion was doing construction when Rachel & Brandon got caught up in the traffic. We had planned to take a short hike that looked over the park. But with the traffic we didnt get to. However lucky for us, Zion is beautiful from every angle. I loved seeing all of the fall colors in Zion. Makes me want to go back like right now..

Heres more of their 30 minute sunset engagement session. (Still got plenty of images. Whoop)

Tayler Expecting by Cody Emberton

When Tayler shared with me that she Will & Bradley were expecting baby number two; she hoped that it would snow because that was the only way she would do maternity photos. & then it snowed in Nashville. Whats meant to be will always be ;)


Middle East Trip by Cody Emberton

I took a personal trip to a place I’ve wanted to see for years. The Middle East. All thanks to best friend Lindsey. I met new friends Kristi & Angela. We had the best time seeing Palestine Israel and Jordan. Here are a few of the photos I took with my camera. The rest are on my phone. It’s crazy that I take horrible personal photos when I travel. Maybe just too busy living in the moment.

Konnor | Collegian Session | Nashville, TN Photographer | Senior Photographer by Cody Emberton

Booking a shoot to celebrate your graduation and your move from Nashville to Denver is a must. Ah, how exciting to be in this time in life when everything and every experience is new. I had a the best time meeting planning and photographing Konnor. Plus she brought her best friend? Major yes! A fun girls afternoon taking photos. (also makeup by the great Amy McElroy)

Marilyn & Calvin Tulum Honeymoon | Tulum, Mexico Photographer by Cody Emberton

I’m not sure how but I’m glad I cam across Marilyn & Calvin’s gorgeous wedding work on Instagram a while back. They’re now a husband and wife team in NOLA who capture emotion and style so well. Check them here

What a small world it is we crossed paths while in Tulum when they were on their honeymoon & I was there shoot honeymoon photos for a few couples! Love how life works that way. Below are some of my favorite images of this beautiful couple.
