dakota here. I am a full-time photographer currently based out of Birmingham, Alabama. I love Jesus, sunsets, plants, traveling, chai, messy hair, worn-in boots, lipstick, netflix, vinyl records, antique stores, & pretty much everything vintage. I am married to my best friend, Jake, who has a rockin' beard. We live in a busy little town on the outskirts of the city with our orange cat, Apple Jack. And I think that telling stories is a pretty big deal.

Let's be real. There are a lot of photographers to choose from & it can be incredibly overwhelming. It's important to you that you choose someone that inspires you and that you feel connected with. You want someone to capture all of the stuff that makes you, you. That's why I'm here.

People have always been important to me. That's one of the things that makes a good storyteller. My shoots typically hinge off conversations about first dates, embarrassing moments, favorite things about each other, tickle fights, and talking about how anxious you and your love are to be together forever. I get to learn about all of the things that make you who you are, walk through traveled & not-so traveled places with you, & be your friend. I just happen to be taking your pictures too.
