Dakai is a force to be reckoned with!! If you've had the pleasure to meet this wild character, you know what I mean - from the very first encounter on Instagram to the delivery of your dreamy, fluid photos, Dakai has shown more love, talent, professionalism, and genuine passion than any photographer we've ever worked with. I'll never forget one of our favorite sessions with Dakai - The love of my life and I were Joshua Tree at sunset with Dakai and he made us feel invincible!! He gave us so much confidence, helped us giggle, and TBH he brought us closer together...he has a magic touch like that. Bree and I now have these photos printed all over our home, they're my profile picture on FaceBook and Instagram, and my phone background! Thank you so much Dakai <3

4 simple words. DAKAI. IS. AMAZING. & STOP looking anywhere else.
He has a gift with LIGHT & the way he captures others through his lens. The second I met him I felt we had known eachother all my life and we were instantly best friends! He makes all his clients feel so special & beautiful & seems to connect with everyone on such a personal level which I am truly grateful for.
There's never a moment that you feel like a camera is in your face with him and he makes everything SO. MUCH. FUN. Shooting with Dakai is an unforgettable experience that is truly priceless.
Cherry on top: his turnaround time with photos was much quicker than I thought it would be and I'm thrilled with every photo I see taken by him! We love you Dakai!!!
