Brooke + Cody

Redbud, IL

 

How did Brooke and Cody meet?

Brooke and Cody are high school sweethearts.  They met when Cody was a senior and Brooke was a junior while they were out with friends one night.  Cody took Brooke for ice cream and a movie for their first date, which Brooke thought was perfect!

Who proposed and how?

Cody and Brooke were visiting their hometown at Christmas time, from North Carolina, where they are stationed.   It was the last night before they went were scheduled to return, and Cody took her to the place where their relationship began and where he gave her a promise ring.  It was just the two of them.

Why are these two perfect for each other?

These two are perfect for each other because they are constantly laughing, and enjoy each other's company.  They share a love of fishing, going to the beach, and watching movies.  They love each other unconditionally, and they would do anything for each other.  They've already been through a lot and have proven these things over and over again.

Want to hear a funny story about their session?

We were almost finished, when Cody asked me to take a picture of the ring with his Duck calls.  We were at a cabin owned by a friend of their family, and I set them up on the front porch.  All of a sudden out of nowhere, Brooke stomped on the porch, causing the ring to roll.  You could see the terror on Cody's face as he realized it had gone under the porch, especially since he had already been very protective of it throughout the session. After much searching, we spotted it, and they ended up prying the boards up to get to it.  It was a happy ending, and that's the important part!  ;)
