    Cody Kilgore

    Photographer, and all-around worthwhile guy

    There is a slim chance I am a wedding nerd. So weddings are all I shoot. And I've enjoyed working with couples in Europe, and all across North America.

    But, in case you want to know more: I've raised two awesome daughters, am sometimes a writer, always a runner, and...I occasionally need help dressing sensibly.

    "Cody did photography at both our wedding in Ireland and reception in Iowa. We couldn't be happier with his professionalism, reconnaissance, detail, timing and talent!"

    Jennifer & Randall

    "Cody was wonderful to work with, the check-in's he provides monthly helped us gain confidence in his work and his knowledge of what we wanted in pictures. We highly recommend him to future brides and grooms looking for a photographer."
