One of the first things that formed our relationship back in 2012 was our love of photography and film. Before we met, each of us held the desire to create, capture and frame the world around us through our own lens. Our first few years together were spent learning from one another, collaborating on side projects, and pushing each other to grow our craft.
After shooting our first wedding together in 2014, we knew we had laid a foundation to build on. After our own wedding in 2015, we found a new respect for all the work that goes into planning a wedding, and we know how important it is to capture your full story. From each detail to the emotions to the unplanned moments – and most importantly your personality as a couple.
In 2015 (the year we got married), we knew it was time to brand ourselves and our work together as one unit. And so Cotangent was born. Since Daniel was a high school math teacher for 3 years before moving into video production, we wanted to connect both worlds. Cotangent is a geometry term, but it stuck because when you break apart the word, it becomes "co" and "tangent," which represents the two of us working the side hustle together and doing what we love since day one.
