Hi, I'm Dakota, but you can call me Ko!

I am a photographer based in North Carolina! Photography brings my heart so much joy. I just love the different personalities that make their way in front of my camera. To be able to capture love stories and each be unique is incredible. Photography is timeless. I believe photos are for story telling. Capturing the in-between, organic emotion, the love between two people for you to hold dear forever and ever. That's the good stuff.

  • Weddings
  • Elopements
  • Couples

I am a mother to three beautiful little girls and I'm married to my best friend. In my free time you can find me at the gym, hanging around a coffee shop with laid back vibes or going on adventures with my family. Cold brew is my jam. You can almost always find me in an oversized sweater + beanie. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I am an enneagram type 6, and words of affirmation is my love language. I thrive on deep quality relationships and exploring new places. I love chilly nights roasting marshmallows, hiking in the mountains, getting sandy on a beach. So basically anything outdoors. If you also enjoy any of those things we will be a great fit.
