My name is Dakota Sims... 

and I am a photographer based out of Southern California. 

I have a passion for travel and chasing light.  

I am enlightened by love, creativity, and creating memories to last a lifetime.  I aim to capture moments through my photography by providing a personalized photographic experience!

I can be described as goofy, quirky, falls over things easily etc. and other than that I really am just driven by creating & the amazing people I meet while doing so! 

You deserve the photographer that is right for you. 

If you are looking for someone with a good camera to take some perfectly posed photos, then I may not be the right photographer for you, and that's totally okay. If you are looking for someone to capture your day as it is unfolding with all the love and emotions in between, I think you're in the right place…

By developing relationships with each of my clients, I create a photographic experience that allows me to predict and capture treasurable moments for my couples.

As your wedding photographer, I get a front row seat to your entire wedding day, something not even your parents or grandparents can say, and I do not take that responsibility lightly. I am so thankful for each of my couples who have trusted me enough to really open up, be themselves, and feel all the emotions right in front of me.

I will still photograph all the lovely little details and expected portraits, but I will also capture your day as it is unfolding and all the beautiful moments in between.

I want to showcase YOU (in all your weirdness) in a timeless way through my photographs. If you're looking for unique, fun, & real imagery, let's get in touch!
