Dakota, you are a champion at what you do. Not just taking photos. You capture moments. You listen. You see. You invite others into a grand adventure. You remind people of their dreams. You share your heart and your passion and people come more alive when they are in your company. The find their footing and feel the freedom that is in being themselves. Thank you for inviting Michael and I on a tiny part of that adventure on that sweet rainy morning in the mountains. Photography with Dakota isn’t a photo shoot at all...it is an experience worth having, where hearts are seen and felt and heart. I adore you, my friend!
I just wanted to thank you so much for your beautiful work. It is beyond what I imagined and truly captured the day. The thing I love the most is that there are so many shots of Jake and I that truly feel authentic. I feel like you really saw us and for that I am so so grateful.
Dakota is just a one-of-a-kind person who genuinely cares about her clients and their stories! She is thoughtful and intentional with everything she does, is so easy to work with, and makes a session one you wont forget. Seriously, we had the most fun the day she took our engagement photos and couldn’t wait to see what kind of magic she worked. She sent us a few photos not long after our session and we were completely in love. We could not stop looking at them, showing others, and bragging on her! Her work is so unique and just really cool! I am so thankful that she had a part in our story.
The way you help in every possible way and the way you care is unforgettable. You are loving and passionate with your work and also thorough. You are a beautiful human inside and out. Talented from your hair to your toes. Anyone would be lucky to have you tell their special story.
The whole problem with you is that you are too talented and insightful when it comes to your craft. Seriously, how will we ever choose between the photographs you created? They are completely beautiful and I love them all! Thank you for once again creating magic. You never let us down!
Her work is something special, something totally unique. Never have I seen stories captured the way she does. This is timeless. To work with her is to know her; this is not her work, this is her passion. She does not hide behind a profession, she reflects her heart. She works with unhindered joy. She photographs in such a way that captures the essence and the story of those in front of her. Her work is one of beauty, romanticism, soul, depth, artistry, and revelation. There is no one else that I would have trusted more to tell mine and my husband’s story. Dakota, I hold the highest honor and respect for who you are and what you do.
Dakota is one of the coolest people you will ever meet. Working with her and being photographed by her is a dream. The experience left me with more than gorgeous images, but a forever friend. She finds the beauty in every living thing and aims to capture that real, raw beauty in her own original way.
Shooting with Dakota was by far one of my all time favorite shoots I’ve been apart of. Not only was the location we went too super creative, it was super fun getting there and getting to get to know Dakota in the process. She is the sweetest, most genuine person, which makes posing in front of the camera a lot easier! I had a lot of fun just doing my thing and her taking pictures, but also when I didn’t know what to do next, she helped pose me perfectly!! The pictures came out to be INCREDIBLE and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect session!
Working with Dakota was an absolute pleasure! I had so much fun and she did an amazing job of making me feel comfortable and bringing out my personality for the camera. She genuinely desired to know my story and found ways to capture it through the lens of her camera. It was such an incredible experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
Dakota’s work is stunning, moody, and altogether beautiful. She captured our wedding day with a stunning realism and told a story through her work along the way. Dakota is professional, listens, and above all - she has fun! Having her photograph our wedding was a gift. She’s that good!
Dakota’s work is amazing! She makes you feel so comfortable. She pulls out the beauty and passion in every picture. I have recommended her multiple times and I will continue to!
