“When I started planning my wedding I knew I wanted an amazing photographer and videographer.
There were many people to choose from, but the moment I saw Dan and Sound Originals, I loved everything I saw. I knew I had to get them! And it was one of the best decisions.
I can easily get shy, but Dan made everything so easy and comfortable and I enjoyed the experience so much. Like many other weddings we ran behind schedule, but Dan was so flexible and did an amazing job working with whatever was thrown his way.
I just received my wedding photos AND I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THEM! It feels like I'm looking through a top notch wedding magazine and I couldn't be happier with them.

“I was really blown away. Looking at the images, they are vivid and capture the moment perfectly… it’s like our wedding day all over again.
Dan is a really nice guy, responds quickly to emails and is easy to work with. We had a stress free wedding, and he directs us well making the photos look more relaxed. Overall an excellent choice!

One of the absolute best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Dan as our videographer! He did a fantastic job at our wedding and captured our day beautifully. He is very easy to work with and very talented and professional. We cannot recommend Dan enough, and are so thankful to have our wedding memories to look back on forever!

I could not be happier with Dan and Sound Originals! I was looking for a videographer who didn't overly edit (I'm not big into the special effects like slow motion, fade ins/outs, too quickly switching between images, etc.) and who would make a video that made our wedding day look special and real. Dan has an absolutely incredible vision. Everyone who has seen our video, especially those who weren't able to make it, has said that our video made them feel like they were right there, sharing in our wonderful day. That is exactly what I wanted - I didn't want a video that looked like a movie but I wanted it to show the story of our day. Our wedding video is beyond beautiful and our guests LOVED the showing of our Love Story Film that we did at our reception! (That engagement video, the "Love Story Film" was part of our package that we filmed about 4 months before the wedding.) Dan is extremely quick to answer emails (we had a "texting" conversation via email one day!), very easy to work with, and definitely listens to your vision and what you want as the customer. He's not the cheapest but also not the most expensive and I definitely believe he's offering the most content for his prices! I would definitely hire him again and plan to recommend him to any of my friends who get married in the future!

You can stop looking for a videographer because Sound Originals is it. Their entire video service experience is absolutely spectacular – from the first meeting all the way through to the finished product. Dan and his company are hands-down the videography service any couple should go with. Dan's creative eye, attention to detail, and obviously top-level skill in shooting the highest quality video are second to none. I was also more than very pleasantly surprised to see the his video team just seeming to melt into the background on our wedding day – completely unobtrusive and seemingly hidden, but still able to capture every important moment. On top of it all is that the finished video could not have been better. Period. It captured everything we could have wanted, and also moments you did not even know happened. Also, if you have hesitant about adding video to your budget, Sound Originals is a no brainer. They will help you relive your whole great day over and over. From creative design, professionalism, cost, and final product, you will be happy with Dan and Sound Originals. Thanks Dan! Our day would not have been the same without you making our video! 5 Stars all the way.

I cannot give Dan and his team enough praise for their work on our wedding video. Our wedding video is absolutely amazing -- we can't stop watching it! Not only was Dan a joy to work with, but his vision and talent are incredible. He was extremely flexible the day of our wedding. My bridesmaids and I were running super behind schedule on the day of but Dan got great footage and never made us feel rushed. To all of the future brides out there -- on your wedding day you will be so caught up in the moment you won't be thinking about what video footage you want or what pictures you need. Thankfully, Dan did an incredible job of pulling us aside and capturing shots that he thought would add to our video. This is something I would never have known was important, but having someone there who knows what he is doing so that you don't have to worry is priceless. To be completely honest, we originally did not think we were going to hire a videographer for our wedding, but it was absolutely the best decision that we made. I cannot wait to watch our video over and over again for years to come. It truly is the best present to ourselves, and something that we will treasure forever.

Dan and his crew blew our socks off. They blended in to the crowd. The three hour tour of our wedding was condensed down to all the high lights.... we've watched it several times. Thank you thank you Dan and his crew. Amazing job!
Elizabeth + Cecil
Dan was professional, patient and so easy to work with. He was very responsive and genuinely listened to what we wanted. We absolutely love our highlight video and you can tell he put so much time and thought into it. We also never thought of doing the love story film, but it was a beautiful touch and our closest friends and family were able to enjoy it with us. Dan captured some of our favorite moments in the wedding, including moments and details with the girls as we got ourselves ready. I could watch our video a million times, and I'm so excited to watch it years from now. Thank you for everything Dan, you were wonderful to work with!

My husband and I hate being in front of a camera, but Dan made us feel so comfortable we completely forgot he was there! He captured our first look beautifully and created an amazing video that told a story and didn't feel like just the raw footage from the day. Dan was very kind and helpful, answering all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. Could not recommend Sound Originals more!

Dan with Sounds originals will capture you special day, bringing tears to your eyes. We hired Sound Originals to do my daughters wedding in March of 2018. My daughter had lots of details and special moments she wanted to make sure was captured. Dan got them all and then some by adding extras we didn't even ask for just because he felt it would add to the video. Sound Originals is top notch in our book!

Blessed! That is the best word to describe how we feel that Dan (Sound Originals) was a part of our daughter's wedding day. He was so easy to work with, professional, timely and went above and beyond to fulfill our requests. When we realized many family members were unable to attend the wedding because of health issues or distance between us, we started our search for a videographer to capture the day in a way that we could share with others at a later date. We feel like luck was truly on our side that we found Dan and that he was available on the day we needed him. We have watched the wedding film many times already and shared it with family and friends, some who were at the wedding and some that were not able to attend. Everyone loves the film and tissues are always needed no matter how many times we watch! An added bonus of having the video that I had not originally thought of was that we would be able to go back and relive the day over and over and see things that we missed on the wedding day. We would highly recommend Dan to anyone who is looking for a videographer in the future!

Dan was amazing and super accommodating on my proposal shoot. He met up with me beforehand over coffee to discuss our logistics, timing, and exact location. He was there perfectly on time and took some amazing photos for us, and even got them back to us the next day!
Li + Phillip
Working with Dan was a great experience. Very professional, super creative, and has such a great personality to make us feel comfortable when taking photos. We would hire him again without question and would recommend him to all our family and friends

We had such a great time working with Dan for our photos!! He is so enthusiastic about what he does, and was so fun to work with. He definitely did a great job of making us feel comfortable, had a great eye for great photo opportunities, and the editing of the photos was amazing. We were so very impressed. It's obvious that he loves what he does and has a natural talent for it. I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone!

Dan was an absolute treasure of a find. He worked really well with us, and made the experience very natural. He has an eye for beauty, and really knows how to work with his surroundings. My husband proposed on Alki Beach, and being able to have our wedding photos taken there meant so much! He let us do our thing, and captured so many happy moments. He made sure we didn't forget to get any of the traditional photos we wanted, and came with ideas of his own (Thank goodness :) ). We really enjoyed getting to know Dan, he is professional, reliable, timely and personable. We were shooting in the cold and he didn't even mind when I had to take a hot chocolate break! I had heard stories from friends that they had to wait a long time for photos (some took months )! Luckily that was not a story we shared. We received all of our beautiful photos in an extremely prompt manner (for us we saw them within 2 days, but I understand that it may differ depending on party size. We just wanted the two of us for this)! I just cannot believe how he made the photos come to life! Some of my favorites were of us walking/ talking on a pier on Alki Beach, and a few with the city lit up behind us at night. For those of you local to Seattle, we even got the building with the light up 12 in the background! If you want a photographer who will capture your best moments, and take beautiful and unique photos. He is your (best) man.

My husband and I we were unsure at first if we needed a videographer at our wedding but we are so glad we booked with Dan! From start to finish, the entire experience was incredibly smooth and professional. Dan even met with us before the wedding at the venue so we could go over where everything would be. Dan is nice, easy-going, and flexible to changing circumstances. The video we received exceeded our expectations and we are so excited to enjoy it over the years with our friends and family. I strongly recommend Dan with Sound Originals to anyone looking for a high-quality videographer and a video they want to treasure for years to come!
