Coeur d'Alene Photographer: Cody & Kiah Engagement

When Cody was an 8th grader he was "the man". That is, all the girls thought he was cute, all the girls wanted to talk to him, to be with him, to date him. Kiah, a 7th grader definitely knew who Cody was. How could she not? Cody knew who Kiah was too, but that was about it. They weren't' really friends, but they knew each other.


The next year Cody left to California and went to school there for his freshman year of high school. When he was a sophomore, he came back and there was Kiah. Beautiful, and older now - a Freshman - and so Cody made a move. 

Kiah said no.

She was talking with someone else at the time, and she thought she liked him. But Cody didn't go away, and as they had a mutual friend, it turns out that they started seeing a lot of each other, and eventually, Kiah wasn't so sure about this other guy, after all, Cody was so handsome. Cody had moved on a bit though, and was hanging out with an older woman at the time, she was a junior or senior (He doesn't really remember). That didn't stop Kiah though, who called him up and told him she was interested. She liked him. As soon as they hung up, Cody picked up the phone, and broke up with that other girl. 

Kiah is just that awesome. 

They would date through high school, and then on to college. They've been dating ever since they were sophomore and freshman in high school. But now they are getting married, now they are saying "let's make this thing last forever" and it's awesome. I loved getting to know both of them as we walked all over Tubbs Hill, and I can genuinely say I'm very excited to photograph their wedding!
