Over 10 Years of Experience
Hi, my name’s Cody. Nice to meet you. Also, thanks for checking out my profile and congratulations on your engagement!
I’ve been a professional photographer since 2009, and while I get the chance to shoot lots of interesting events and subjects, weddings are definitely my favorite. I moved to Philadelphia in 2012 after resigning from my position as an instructor/lead shooter at a large wedding company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Even though I shot most weekends in larger cities around Tulsa, like Dallas or Kansas City, I always knew I wanted to ultimately live and work in a larger metropolitan area to be able to pursue more fashion and editorial projects.
When I shoot weddings I get to capture the moment with a couple on the happiest day of their life. A day where they’ve spared no expense to celebrate finding their soulmate with all of their closest friends and family. I view the job as an honor as well as a privilege and knowing the photo I just shot will be the one they share first with their friends and family as well as someday maybe their children and grandchildren make it all worth it.
When I’m not shooting weddings or fashion work, my brother and I run a small company catering mostly to businesses around Philadelphia. He manages web design and I handle graphics using programs like Photoshop or Illustrator. I also love playing music – I play several instruments, but normally I’ll be on guitar or drums when playing with bands. I’m a huge fan of pool, ping-pong…. really any games that are reliant on hand-eye coordination.
If you’ve made it this far – thanks again for checking out my profile and good luck with the wedding planning!
*Lead Photographer at over 400 weddings in 3 different countries.

We had Cody with us,what an amazing decision! Cody knew exactly the type of photos we would really want to have after it was all over and helped guide us through our timeline without feeling pressured. I’ll be telling anyone that asks to call him immediately!
Our photographer Cody was outstanding. He got every moment perfectly; whether it was a candid shot, a staged photo, or a surprise moment. (Like when I hit myself in the face with the bouquet!) Not only did the photos look great, he was down to earth and a lot of fun to work with. Our wedding had a lot of last minute changes, but he stayed calm and even stepped in to help manage things. Best of all, the photos are spectacular.
I just wanted to say we were beyond happy with Cody Jack and John. They were all amazing and we would highly recommend all of them!! A great experience all around. Thank you!!!
Cody was very professional and a nice person.
