Hey there! I’m Dakota, and I am the face behind the camera. I’m married to my adventure companion and partner in everything. We are blessed with two very daring and creative kids, I’m sure you’ve seen 1 or 2 pictures of them, Sawyer and Dax.  I have a mad case of ‘Wanderlust’ and if I am not chasing after my littles, or working – we are probably on or planning an adventure.

A Little over 9 years ago, my hobby became my full time job, leaving the broadcasting world to become a photographer! And I must tell you, I have been so incredibly blessed to capture so many amazing moments in families lives during this time. Every wedding I capture makes me feel like a little kid on Christmas morning, and capturing those sweet little newborn fingers and toes makes me SWOOON all day long.

I am pretty pumped to meet you and help capture the moments that mean most to you!
