Kodie + Dwight’s Rustic Farm Couple Session in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
We met up with Kodie & Dwight at a rustic farm outside of Fayetteville a few weeks ago. This lovely couple is leaving North Carolina next month, so they wanted a photo session to help them remember their time in the south. (Plus, it was the perfect opportunity to capture the newest addition to their family – a 5-month old American Bulldog named Monster!)
We has such a great time getting to know these newlyweds and wish them the best of luck in Arizona!
(Also, a huge thanks to the owners of this gorgeous Gray’s Creek property for allowing us to shoot there!)
How did you and Dwight meet?
“We met one night in downtown Fayetteville! We started talking to one another and found out we were more connected than we thought: We are both from Arizona. Our hometowns are less than 45 minutes apart. He played college baseball in my hometown. We were both in Arizona this past Christmas. …I literally stopped at a gas station maybe a mile or two from his parents house while he was there. (This was before we even met.) We also found out that in Elementary school, my grandmother was his art teacher. So, we started dating and have been inseparable since then!”How did he propose to you?
“We were just hanging out one day, nothing too out of the ordinary. Dwight looked at me and said “Baby, marry me!” I didn’t think he was serious and I joked, “You know I will.” Then he said it again…”I’m serious, Kodie will you marry me?” I never had been happier! And of course told him ,”Yes! ..Does this mean I get to go pick out a ring!?” haha. With the upcoming move to El Paso, we had a quick courthouse ceremony downtown and plan to have a much larger wedding with our family!”
How would you describe each other?
Kodie: “Dwight is very loving and dedicated to his family. He’s easy-going, STRONG, and compassionate!”
Dwight: “Kodie is an emotional, strong-willed, beautiful, affectionate, dedicated, and motivated woman. My favorite thing about her is how driven she is! She doesn’t like to settle, and she pushes herself in work and our relationship! Plus, she takes good care of me and our fur-son.”
Kodie: ” My favorite thing about Dwight is his SMILE! From the first moment we met, it made me melt! I love how he kisses me every morning before he leaves for PT! He also sits through all of the terrible reality tv I watch and never complains!! Gotta love that, haha! ;)”
What do you like to do together in your spare time?
“D loves going to the gym! I work a lot, so I rarely have any spare time. When we do have some time together, we like to go on dates – taking Monster on walks to the dog park and for rides in the truck!”
Tell us about your puppy, Monster!
“Monster is a 6 month old Johnson/Scott pure American Bulldog. He’s the BIGGEST SWEETHEART IN THE WORLD! He loves to cuddle, play outside with other dogs, go for rides with his head out the window, and long walks. He thinks he is a human child and he’s a HUGE momma’s boy. He weighs about 65-70 lbs but still thinks he is a tiny lap puppy!”
