Bonneville Salt Flat Bridals | Utah Wedding Photographer by Cody Emberton

The Bonneville Salt Flats in northern Utah is quite possibly one of the coolest places I’ve been to. Going out of your way to see it is a vibe. So the day after Rachel & Brandon married in Big Cotton Canyon we took a short girls trip to shoot here. Their wedding will be blogged later this week. So for now, the salt flats!

Rachel & John's Meadowhill Farm Wedding by Cody Emberton

I absolutely adore Rachel & John. They are two of the most happy go lucky couples I’ve had the pleasure to photograph. Young & in love, they’re ready to take on the world. John being in the army will give them the perfect chance to do just that. Rachel is also an incredible photographer. such an honor for a photographer to choose me as their wedding photographer! Below are some of my favorite moments from the day Rachel & John said I do.

(Side note I highly recommend Meadow Hill Farms as your venue if you’re looking for a beautiful barn venue. The owner Jenny, is a former photographer who has created a stunning venue with so many photo opportunities.)

Personal Shoot | Nashville Photographer by Cody Emberton

So for over a year I’ve been wanting to shoot with a disco ball & a theme of shades of nude. So then I decided to combine them. Then after talking with Kristen we decided to go shoot at a mine (I know it could be dangerous not sure how but thats what people say) So we snuck out there right at sunset for the blue images. Heres the results of my ideas below.

Helena | Jaco, Costa Rica by Cody Emberton

There were two things I wanted to do. Go to Costa Rica & shoot in Jaco. The power of Instagram is real. I found the most amazing model, Helena & makeup artist, Tamera from hash tags. We met in San Jose then road tripped to Jaco for photos. These ladies are insanely talented and so much fun to talk to. See more from our shoot below.

Courtney & Landon | Nashville Maternity Session by Cody Emberton

I met Landon years ago at the second wedding I shot. Landon is the kind of guy you feel like you’ve known since high school and then later realize; no you really met at a wedding because he’s just that nice & makes you feel like you’ve known each other for a long time.

Same for his fiancé Courtney. We met at their engagement session. When she pulled up in a SUV with a tiny sloth sticker on it. I knew then she was a friend of mine. So naturally, we’ve been friends since.

I’ve loved getting to know and be friends with these two. So meeting up for their maternity session was the best. These two becoming parents? The sweetest & so exciting.

Here’s more from their session!
