What My New Friends Say...


I enjoy weddings. Truly. It gives me a chance to get to know some really nice people, and enjoy one of their biggest life events with them. How cool a job is that?

Somewhere way back (further back than I care to admit) I learned a couple of things about customers and service. The first was that a customer you see as a new friend rather than just a customer will return the same. The other was to do whatever no one else in your line of work will do, and in doing so exceed your new friend's expectations.

I've carried cakes. I've picked up flowers. I've tied grooms ties (Do they teach that anymore?). I've decorated venues, showed up at salons at 6am, helped clean up receptions, and...I've even tied one brides dress.


But, don't just take my word for it. Here is what my new friends say:

"Cody was such a pleasure to work with. We booked him far in advance because we liked his style and his prices were so reasonable. Each month leading up to the wedding day he would call to check in on the wedding planning, to lend some expert advice, or to simply ask how we were doing. He was very helpful with planning the sequence of events for the wedding day in terms of photography and just general scheduling. He also kept track of the other vendors that would be present at our wedding so he could communicate with them. While taking photos at the rehearsal he took time to get to know our family and the wedding party. All of our family quickly became comfortable and friendly with Cody. On the big day Cody was there from start to finish. It was a long 13+ hour day and he stuck close to capture every moment. Even as the venue was closing down at the end of the night, Cody stayed to take the final group picture we wanted. We loved how kind and sincere he was through the entire process and look forward to working with him in the future. Thanks Cody!"

"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."

~ Jennifer & Randall


"Cody was by far the best and easiest part to deal with pertaining to our wedding! He was able to answer any questions we had along the way and even went out of his way to try to fix issues that weren't even his. He does an absolutely amazing job and is very easy and flexible to work with. He arrived at the same time we did on the wedding day and left when we left at the end of the night. He captured every aspect of our day! The pictures we got back were everything we could have wanted and more! He was the BEST!!"

~ Katelyn & Jordan


"My husband and I met Cody when we were looking for someone to shoot our engagement and wedding photos. When we met him he was very interested not just in the details of our wedding, but in getting to know us as a couple as well. He called every month to check in on how things are going and ask questions that would help him plan for our big day. It was clear that he was thinking about our wedding long before it came. We never felt like we were just put on the back burner, and Cody always responded quickly whenever we had questions. We had our engagement photos taken and loved them. Cody truly has a unique eye and can capture moments that others may never think of. When our wedding day rolled around, Cody was the first to arrive and one of the last to leave. He is not a "by the hour" photographer and gives his full attention to the couple. He even took photos at the rehearsal dinner and checked over lighting and where everything was going to be located so he could be fully prepared for the next day. It was truly great having Cody there with us all day. He seemed like more of a guest or friend than a photographer and got tons of awesome shots without feeling like there was a camera in your face all day. We really enjoyed working with Cody for our wedding and highly recommend him to anyone else looking for a quality photographer!"

~ Megan & Nick


"Cody was the best wedding vendor we had by far! We received many compliments about his friendliness, skill, promptness, and attention to detail. He not only focused on us but captured our guest throughout the night as well. It was important to him to get to know us as a couple and I think that comes through in his photos. Cody also worked well with and was sure to include our furbabies into our wedding day. The canvas he gave us from our wedding is hanging in our living room and we never plan to take it down! We would recommend Blackcap photography to everyone."

~ Katherine & Lane


"Aside from his talents as a photographer, Cody is great to work with in general. He was friendly, communicative, and helpful even with things that weren't really part of his job at all - case in point, none of the groomsmen knew how to tie a tie, but he helped them all with that. He took a lot of stress off of what would have been a very nerve-wracking day. My husband and I are immensely grateful for everything he did for us, from the engagement photos all the way through to the wedding."

~ Melissa


"We met Cody at a Bridal Show, and while he was already booked on our date for another wedding, we asked him to shoot an Engagement Session for us. I knew right away that both my Fiancé and I liked his personality and his style. Not only is he affordable and reasonable with his pricing, but the pictures turned out GREAT! We loved them! For me though, it's more than just amazing photography (which he did!), but it's also the professionalism and his overall style of doing business which is why I give him 5 stars and am already recommending him to friends and family. Cody is very timely on responding and always pleasant. We wanted our pictures taken outdoors after a fresh snowfall; he was so flexible on playing the weather by ear and communicating with us on when and where we should go. He's also true to his word; he said he'd have our photos to us in a week, and we had them in 6 days. It's been a wonderful experience working with Cody and I highly recommend him. He won't disappoint!"

~ Jamie


"Cody was AMAZING! We had a great time working with him. He was there for our Rehearsal Dinner and ALL day Saturday from 9a.m. to 11p.m. Wonderful to work with and definitely recommend him to anyone. Will use him again in the future!"

~ Chelsea


"Cody was amazing his work truly speaks for itself, very nice, polite, attentive to details, also he honored almost all my requests for photos I wanted to try(thanks to pinterest). He was there from start to finish! He was very well priced and turnaround rate was very impressive for the huge amount of pictures taken!"

~ Desiree


"Cody, I just wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job shooting our wedding! You were absolutely wonderful to work with, you put us at ease. and made our wedding very special! My family was very impressed with you as well. I'm so excited to see the final results!"

~ Jenny


"Cody did a great job! The pictures turned out so beautiful! AND he was terrific to work with. Very much recommend!!"

~ Julie


"All in all, we would suggest him to absolutely anybody. Cody surpassed all my expectations of a photographer. He provided my wife and I with great images of our special day(s), and captured the essence of my wife and I's relationship. Our wedding went perfectly and Cody's professionalism, personality, and commitment to providing us with memories definitely added to that feeling of a perfect day."

~ Evan


"Cody & his team went above and beyond what I could have hoped for. Very accommodating."

~ Natalie


"We met for engagement photos and Cody and his assistant were very personable and were great to work with. He edited and emailed some of our photos the same day we had them taken and the rest were delivered to us a few days later! I can't wait to work with them on our wedding day, the pictures turned out beautiful! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer."

~ Amy


"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!"

~ Becca


"Cody was amazing to work with on our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. He allowed us to utilize some of the ideas we had in mind and helped us to perfect the shots to make them as beautiful as possible. He showed us different edits of shots to see how unique they could be. One of our favorite shots from our engagement shoot came out in such a way that it looked like it could have been a movie poster! Beautiful work and a great attitude to boot. Thanks, Cody!"

~ Catlin


"Cody was so much fun to work with as well as experienced! He was patient and took the time to figure out our wants and needs. He provided us with amazing shots and memories for years to come of our beautiful wedding! I would recommend him to anyone!"
