We are Dani and Jacob - your “yes and” photographers

Did we just become best friends?

We love love.

We met back in 2017 when a mutual friend of ours set us up. Jacob was in a play at the time with his classmate Kyle, and Kyle was and continues to be one of Dani’s best friends. After briefly saying hi and quickly parting ways after the show, it took less than 24 hours for Jacob to slide into Dani’s dms. Life happened and we lost touch later that year. Fast forward to 2022, after living in various other cities and states, and five years after we first met, we found ourselves in the same bar on Dani’s 30th birthday. (Dani’s a big woo woo girl - there are no coincidences!)

Jacob had been running his photography business, JCO Photo, for several years, and Dani was tiptoeing back into photography on a whim, having originally been working towards a career in photojournalism before switching her major to theatre. With a mutual craving for travel, new adventures, and Dr. Pepper, we decided why the f*ck not, and Boy Howdy Co. was born.

On any given day, you can find us catching the latest flicks or watching Rupaul’s Drag Race, cooking and trying out new recipes, dancing very unseriously, daydreaming about our travel plans, snuggling with Dani’s dog, Marty, or walking to our favorite coffee shops.
