About Dakota Layne Photography

Dakota Layne Photography

Lead Photographer + Cat Mom

Photographing your intimate love story has evolved into an extension of who I am. As your photographer, my philosophy is centered around capturing the essence of the two of you as you truthfully are. My biggest goal is be a fly on the wall and let you genuinely enjoy every moment of your day without feeling like the main purpose is posing for the camera. Above all else, I seek to honor your individuality, the in-between, I want to be there through it all with you. Let me be the one to help harbour you're dearest memories of you and those you love.

Wedding photography is personal and we have to feel connected for it to be done right. I don't believe that any two weddings should look the same and I strive to honor my couples and their individuality while also leaving room for artistic expression. I am die hard in my commitment to you and hold these relationships in the utmost light. If you're laid back and super in-love looking for those radiating, documentary style, bring you back kind of photos of your day all while having the time of your life with those you love... then I'm your girl.

    When we first met Dakota over a zoom call, it was like seeing an old friend. We absolutely adored her and knew immediately we found a hidden gem and needed to lock her down for our wedding day and we are so so happy we did. It was so easy to connect with her and share our ideas/vision, and she made it all come to life. At both the engagement session and our wedding, she captured all that we are as a couple and more. I’m not personally one to enjoy the spotlight but Dakota made it so comfortable and fun. Not only is she one of the sweetest, kindest people I’ve ever met, but she also holds herself to an exceptionally high standard. She’s very responsive, and timely, and pours her heart and soul into every photo. Her dedication to her couples and her craft is admirable! As we sit here and gush over our photos for the millionth time, we thank our lucky stars that Dakota was there to capture the first of many beautiful moments for us.

    Dakota shot our wedding in Feb. 2024. She did an amazing job! She was friendly, lively, and delivered an amazing selection of photos for us! We wouldn't change a thing!

    Dakota is such an incredible person to work with and added so much to our day. Not just by taking our favorite pictures of all time, but for also being such good energy and light on our day! We wouldn't have wanted any one else to capture our day after our initial meeting!

  • Dakota is the absolute best!

    If you’re thinking of booking, do!! I looked around for many photographers to do our wedding photos and Dakota was by far the best to communicate with! We discussed all of our visions and ideas for our day and Dakota made them happen. I have never had more beautiful photos taken of me (which is saying a lot as I hate having my picture taken), and she made us feel so comfortable!! My husband never has a “real” smile and she was able to make us laugh like no other and got some great pictures of him too! I highly recommend her!! I can’t wait to book her for future family pictures!
