Internationally award winning photographer Jennifer Cody had a completely different career planned. After receiving a degree from Wellesley College, she moved to Oaxaca, Mexico where she became interested in photography and began pursuing it as a hobby. She studied urban planning at Rutgers and moved to Washington, DC where she worked for the International Monetary Fund. While working at the IMF, her passion for photography grew and friends began to seek her out for special events. She shot her first wedding in 2006 and soon after became a full time wedding photographer. "It is extremely fulfilling for me to be surrounded by the intense, joyful energy of a wedding day. I hope that what I do for my clients will one day allow their grandchildren to experience those moments through the photographs."
Jennifer's work has been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Washingtonian Magazine, The Knot Magazine, Brides Magazine, and numerous industry blogs.
After seven years of shooting, Jennifer recognized the unique challenges in post production that wedding photographers face. She teamed up with John Aarnio to create Sidecar Post, a boutique post processing studio. Sidecar handles post production for Susan Stripling Photography and Chrisman Studios, two of the most high profile studios in the industry. Sidecar offers customized private consulting services to photography studios in the US and other countries with a goal of maintaining consistent quality throughout client galleries while utilizing a best practices workflow that maximizes efficiency and significantly increases the speed of work.
Equal parts creative and technical, John has always had a career-identity crisis. Graduating from George Mason University with a degree in Graphic Design and Animation, he had a brief stint as a freelance 3d animator, helping to create content for network television.
"3D Studio Max, especially in those early days, is still the hardest thing I've ever had to learn. We had to actually go to a bookstore to get our tutorials. A bookstore".
In a complete change of pace, in 2002, John joined a startup technology company on the cutting edge of large scale data processing for litigation support. He dove head first into the emerging E-Discovery industry, designing workflows, collaborating with software developers, and managing large scale projects with small, talented teams of people. This environment allowed him to hone his problem solving skills and his ability to understand the nuances of a wide variety of technologies. From there, he joined another litigation-support company in DC as their Operations Director. John also learned valuable lessons about project management and selling to clients, but more importantly, customer service. "It actually became one of my hallmarks. Ask anyone I've worked with and the phrase 'customer service' comes up first."
In 2010, while taking a long hiatus between jobs, John somehow found himself talking photography with his old animation crew from college. As these stories go, one thing lead to another and he found himself on another career path, applying his technical skills, creative problem solving, and good customer service to the wedding photography industry.
With Sidecar Post, he currently does highly specialized photo processing for several prominent wedding photographers, and even dives in to designing workflows and scripting new utilities to speed along the work. On the weekends, you can find him assisting Jennifer Cody with her wedding shoots, and the unique off-camera flash style she has developed over the years.
"You learn quickly that this kind of work isn't easy. With off camera flash, you also learn the importance of good teamwork. And the importance of breakfast. Don't skip that on the wedding day."
