If you know Cody & Jenna, you already know that these two are a wonderful pair.

And if you don’t know Cody & Jenna, you’ll really quickly learn that about them just by looking through these photos. You’ll also discover that this couple nails picking out matching outfits, struggles with not smiling, and happily make out on command.

That’s my kind of couple.

With gray skies overhead and a crispness in the air at Moorhead State University Moorhead, I met up with Jenna and Cody for their engagement pictures. Cody’s an MSUM alumni and it’s where Jenna now works. Cody proposed to Jenna on campus, so naturally it’s a special place for them — and I’m always happy to use a location that has meaning for a couple!

One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to know couples’ love stories. Jenna and Cody met through student government. Jenna more or less decided she and Cody were going to be friends.

After months of friendship, Jenna started relentlessly pursuing Cody. (I love that little detail because it reminds me of my experience with my husband!) Cody didn’t think it would work out, because he was in the Army and due to be deployed. But Jenna didn’t give up, and eventually Cody decided it might be worth it.

And boy, was it worth it for them! Jenna and Cody stayed together throughout Cody’s deployment, growing their relationship despite the long distance. Now that Cody’s back, these two are getting married!

After spending some time outside with the fall foliage in the area Cody proposed, we made our way inside to the library. As a total bookworm, I’m thrilled we got to take these!
