  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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!

  • Dan was a wonderful choice for our wedding weekend. He was easy to be around, did a great job directing us, listened to our input, and was overall a super fun and friendly presence to have during our wedding weekend. I felt like he was one of the guests, except he also did an AMAZING job shooting our wedding. He was capable of many styles and immediately grasped the vibes we were going for. We especially loved his creativity photographing the wedding. He was constantly searching for new ideas/angles/styles of shots he had not done before. You could tell he loves his job and the joy was infectious. We HIGHLY recommend Dan and Sound Originals to handle your photography needs!

    Thank you, Abhishek! I know you hired me to photograph and film your wedding, but honestly it felt like I was there on vacation. You and your family were so generous and welcoming! It was a blast. I was honored to work with you and hope you and Carolyn love the photos as much as I did. Thanks again for being a fantastic client, and I wish you all the best!

  • We were so fortunate to hire Dan as our Wedding photographer and Videographer last summer, It is definitely the best decision we had made for whole wedding. He and his partner definitely captured the all best moments, and quality of the final delivered product is superb 10/10. We especially like the sunset photo in which I kissed my wife at top of a hill with Lake Washington and downtown Seattle as background. Beside the high quality of his work, we also want to thanks him and his team for following: Flexibility: After first engagement photo session, we want to change photo editing style to light & airy; Dan had no problem to change that, the final photos style are definitely what we asking for. Fast reaction: I gave Dan an emergent call because my wife and farther in-law were suddenly so emotional in brides' room few minutes before ceremony, we definitely want to capture this touching moment. After receiving my call, Dan responded quickly and run across whole site to brides... Read more

  • Dan is the best in the business! Choosing him as our photographers for our wedding photos was a great decision. He made the whole process enjoyable, natural, and FUN!! I arranged my wedding from New York, spoke to him over the phone. He truly made the process easy for me. He has a true natural talent for photography and were able to capture every special moment that meant the world to us. Their precision to detail is amazing. If you want the most authentic, unique, and fun photos in town, he is your guy.

  • 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!

    Thanks, Liz! I was so lucky to be your videographer. You and Cecil, and your families, are so warm and kind. It was an honor to be a part of your wedding day. I hope you enjoy your film for decades to come. Please stay in touch!

  • We are so thrilled to have chosen Dan for our wedding! From the beginning, we wanted to make sure our photographer captured the moments with family and friends that we would otherwise miss during the festivities of the day. Dan understood that and was so easy to work with. Wedding photography really is an investment but I felt that Dan had both reasonable packages and overwhelmingly positive reviews and experience. I am so glad we booked him for our wedding! Day of, he was easy to work with and incredibly patient with our large families. He gave great directions for photos and also captured many of the natural moments between my husband and me. We had so many incredible photos after our wedding that I can't even pick my top 5 - they are so amazing! I also love his editing style since I found many photographers that had either an overly moody, dark style or were extremely bright and white. I know that my wedding pictures will look great for decades to come (and not look overly edited or... Read more

    Thanks, Jonica! Your wedding was amazing, and you look absolutely gorgeous in your dress. I am still craving all the delicious food!! Thanks to you and Kel, and your families, for the honor to be your photographer. I also love hearing feedback, especially about the longer hours you wish you'd booked. I absolutely agree. It was wonderful meeting both of you, and your families, and I wish you all the best!

  • 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.

  • Due to the unforeseen outbreak of the CoronaVirus, our wedding has been postponed until the summer of 2021; the initial wedding date was July of 2020. When we discussed the change in date with Dan, he was willing to perform the work for the new date, however expected to be paid in full by June 22, 2020-over a year before services would be rendered. We offered to pay a portion of the remaining balance now and the remainder 30 days prior to the new wedding date- a reasonable accommodation on both ends to ensure protection of both parties. We were open to additional forms of negotiation, regarding payment, however Dan offered none and insisted to be paid in full. It soon became clear Dan was unwilling to come to an agreement, and my fiancé and I terminated the contract. Within minutes of the termination, Dan sent another email stating he would be able to be more flexible as our wedding date fell on a weekday. The poor manner in which the situation was handled up to that point was extreme... Read more
