My name is Dan Cassuto. My yellow sidekick is a 2-year-old lab named Duke!
Together, we create fantastic photography and videography for amazing clients in Seattle, Washington and beyond.
(Duke is still learning how to work the camera, but he's becoming an editing pro.)
PHOTO & VIDEO
My background and experience are a bit unique. I worked 10 years as a television journalist and reporter for NBC, ABC and CBS stations, including KING 5 in Seattle.
I was also a very serious still photographer all those years passionate about nature, landscape and wildlife photography!
That’s how I blend photo and video skills together so smoothly. When couples hire me to do both photo and video, I work alongside a team of trusted partners!
I’m also enthusiastic about doing just photography or just videography for you.
ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC, NATURAL
My approach to storytelling is simple — be original. Sound Originals specializes in wedding films, wedding photography and senior portrait photography. I also produce and direct films and videos for nonprofit organizations and businesses.
As a reporter, I covered a different story every day -- from President Barak Obama's visits to bald eagles to dog parks to anything and everything in between.
You can trust me to capture important events like weddings with outstanding quality.
