separately …or together!
LET’S BE REAL—You have a ton of options.
I’d love for you to discover why couples love Sound Originals!
My name’s Dan Cassuto. My yellow sidekick is a 3-year-old lab named Duke. Together, we’re a great storytelling team. (Duke is still learning how to work the camera, but he's becoming an editing pro.)
I’m so proud of the awesome 5-star reviews and testimonials from 40+ happy couples. You can be blown away, too!
Couples say they love my storytelling style … creative, original, authentic. I worked 10+ years as a television journalist for NBC, ABC and CBS stations capturing moments and emotions! I’ve documented thousands of events—even President Barack Obama’s official visits.
My work was honored with 5 EMMY AWARDS.
You can trust me to notice and capture those special, unplanned, unposed moments—the reactions, laughter, joy, surprise, tears, smiles—that will only happen for a split second on this huge day in your life!
My style is inspired by photojournalism—but also artistic, creative and unique. Gentle guidance and suggestions—not fake poses. I’m more involved than a fly-on-the-wall, but not pushy.
You’ll look your best when you’re comfortable. Couples tell me I’m a calming presence—making the whole experience easy and fun—letting authenticity shine through.
