  • We highly recommend Dan and Sound Originals! From the very beginning, Dan was extremely professional. He had great communication and responded in a prompt manner. Despite a pandemic and thunderstorm, Dan came out and captured our small, intimate wedding ceremony in such a beautiful manner! He put us first even if it meant getting drenched in the rain! Our wedding was special because of him! We can’t wait to work with him more in the future!

  • Dan far exceeded our expectations as the photographer at our daughter’s wedding. We felt like we were looking at magazine prints when we saw the photos, they were so perfect. Dan knew exactly where to be to get the best picture. On our fifth viewing of the ceremony recording, we actually watched just him in the background. He was a master at work, stopping occasionally to survey the scene in order to maximize the shot, taking so many photos in such rapid succession. At one point, he turned his camera to our special needs daughter, about 10 feet away, who was watching in her chair under a shade tree, too anxious to be closer to the ceremony taking place. When the photos came in, there was a wonderful picture of her relaxing and seeing her older sister get married, plus pictures of her responding to a fist bump from the groom and an intimate moment with her sister. We will forever be grateful for these precious photos. We look at the pictures and think, “How in the world did he get... Read more

  • My fiance hired Dan to take photos of our proposal, and then our engagement pictures followed. I was blown away by how beautiful the pictures turned out. Dan was incredibly professional, and spent a lot of time with us to make sure we got all the pictures we wanted and had a lot to choose from. I can't express how happy I was with the final product, and our friends and family loved them, too! Plus, we've had to reschedule our wedding for next year, and Dan was so flexible in working with us to make our new date work. Dan is a great talent, and we highly recommend him for your engagement and wedding pictures.

    Thanks so much, Megan and Ty! Your surprise proposal and engagement shoot was one of the best days of the year! (Ty and I had been secretly planning for a long time!!!) Can't wait for your wedding, and I am so happy we could accommodate your new date. Clients are absolutely everything to me and I am so lucky to know you!

  • After scouring the Internet looking for the “right” photographer for our engagement shoot and wedding photos. We found Dan at Sound Originals, and we couldn’t be happier! From the very start he made us feel comfortable and relaxed. He had awesome ideas for the engagement photo locations. On the wedding day, he brought an excellent team, that was polite, professional, yet still fun. We were extremely pleased and would hire him again!

  • We really appreciate and enjoy their fabulous work. Really can't ask for a better place to get our wedding pictures done so excellently. Dan is the photographer who did our engagement photos. He is really good at creating an atmosphere so that we don't feel nervous in front of the camera and that he can capture our natural selves. Dan is also very proactive in working with us for wedding timeline and did a great job coordinating between us and the photographer, Cheryl, and videographer, Mike, who did our wedding day pictures and videos. Dan always answered our questions in a timely fashion and catered to our customized needs. We also loved working with Cheryl a lot. She is so detail oriented and has such a good eye to capture all the wonderful moments of our big day. She is also very patient and friendly. We don't feel nervous at all but only peace and joy. I'd also like to mention how cautious the whole crew - Dan, Cheryl, and Mike - are during the covid-19 pandemic. This really makes... Read more

  • Dan is very professional and we love his work! With all the changes due to the COVID-19, Dan was there to help us to catch the best moment in our big day. We really appreciate his flexibilities and commitment especially in the midst of uncertainties and all the risks he had to face. He is very considerate with rescheduling dates and accommodate us with free unedited videos so that we can share with our families and friends who can do come in person. He surprised us when we got all our edited photos and videos back the next day! Thank you Dan for all your hard works. We are looking forward to working with you soon again.

    Jasmine and Ying-Ju, thank you so much! I loved capturing your wedding. It was my pleasure to be flexible. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the fall when we can celebrate your wedding with a big party!

  • Dan did a fabulous job capturing our event. We had to re-scope our package with Dan due to the pandemic since we couldn't have the 150+ person event we had originally planned. He was communicative and flexible throughout. He even scoped out our ceremony site before and helped us think about different setup ideas to get the best lighting. We are so happy with how the photos turned out and have beautiful pictures that our families will appreciate forever. Terrific quality, great eye, and Dan was able to capture the key moments and beauty of the scenery. Would definitely recommend.

  • Dan’s talent to capture our amazing day and translate that into video was absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to share our memories with. His storytelling through our video made us so happy and allows us to relive our wedding day, and the feelings we had during that day anytime we want! We couldn’t thank you enough and you won’t regret hiring Dan for your special moment or day either!

  • We got married in May 2019 and we absolutely enjoyed working with Dan for wedding photos and videography. Dan is very easy to communicate with over email and in person. We had the opportunity to get familiar and comfortable with him and his camera over an engagement photo shoot, where Dan gave very helpful guidance on poses but more often he used light jokes to help us being ourselves. The engagement photos turned out extremely beautiful. On the big day, Dan and his colleague were on time and accommodating to our slightly unusual itinerary. Throughout the wedding day, they blend into the background to capture the most natural emotions of the moment. The photos were absolutely gorgeous and they look great on our wall! The final video definitely shows how good Dan is at storytelling, as we still watch it once in a while to relive that day. The one thing I wish I did differently was to include more group combinations during the wedding party/family photo shoot. I was worried that we d... Read more

I love hearing feedback that's constructive, as well, because I truly believe we're all still learning throughout our lives. You guys are the best and I hope we cross paths again!

  • My husband and I are so happy that we worked with Dan and his team for our wedding photos and videography and we 100% recommend Sound Originals. I am not surprised at all that he's already mostly booked for 2021! It's clear to me that he loves what he does and loves making customers happy with such an important investment for a big day. We will treasure our photos and film for years to come. The entire process from beginning to end of working with Dan was excellent. He always replied super quickly, and went out of his way to get us what we wanted. For example, we decided mere weeks before the wedding to hire a livestreamer instead of doing it ourselves, and Dan found us someone he had worked with before on very short notice and who was in our budget. And a month or two earlier we had had to reschedule the wedding and make some changes in the plan, and Dan was super responsive and helpful in getting us rescheduled. I had no idea planning my tiny wedding would be so stressful, and wor... Read more

  • Sound Originals is AMAZING!! My husband and I are very particular but Dan exceeded our standards. We did an engagement session with him and had him do our wedding photos and video. We couldn't be more happy with what we received. He knew exactly what we wanted and made it happen! I am very appreciative with how professional he is and how he is so responsive right away! He got our pictures back to us very fast. 10 out of 10 recommend!! We are soo in love with these photos!

He presented us with unique & artsy photos with plenty of variety that was hard to choose from. We enjoyed working with Dan so much and would definitely recommend him!

  • Due to the pandemic my husband and I had to change all our wedding plans, and Dan was completely understanding. He is so easy to contact and communicated really well before, during and after our wedding. We ended up having a very intimate wedding, and Dan fit right in. He also respected our social distancing/mask requests. We could tell Dan was very thoughtful of all the pictures he took. He didn't take pictures just to take pictures. There were some amazing moments he captured that made us go, he took that? How did he even get that shot? Dan went with the pictures we wanted to take, as well as coming up with his own very creative ideas. We took some social distancing pictures with our parents, and Dan made them look purposeful and beautiful. We could tell Dan enjoyed a challenge. We ended up jumping into the lake at the end of our wedding and Dan took some amazing water shots of us which he said he hadn't really done before. We would have never known that was the case with the photos ... Read more

  • At first, I was hesitant to invest the money in having a videographer for our wedding day - after connecting with a handful of videographer vendors we found Dan. I am SO glad we decided to go with Sound Originals. Dan was responsive, met with us before the wedding to understand the vision we wanted and did an amazing job capturing our day (in a short preview film and extending 6 minute video). I really wanted our wedding video to be light hearted and fun (where most other couples want something different) and Dan nailed it! Having the aerial footage included in our video was also worth it as the UW Botanic Gardens are beautiful in the summertime. Dan knew how to take advantage of the lighting through our special day and captured the BEST moments. Dan is a pro and would recommend him to all couples as he is flexible in capturing what you and your partner want!

    Thanks, Brooke and Ryan! I'm so lucky to be your videographer. It totally made my day to read how happy you were with your film. My clients are absolutely everything to me and I am so grateful for your kind words.
