Hey there, we’re Courtney & Dakotah! A husband and wife team with a deep rooted passion in creating more for our lives and doing things a bit untraditional. Our love is the driving force behind our work and we believe that every couple should have the opportunity to celebrate their love with an experience that feels natural, intimate, and true-to-them. We love getting to know our couples, hearing your love stories, and building connections that allow us to capture your honest moments and real memories.
