Capturing your story is the single most important investment you'll make on your special day. We’re a small team of photographers and filmmakers in the Pacific Northwest led by 5-time EMMY winner Dan Cassuto. We’d love to tell your story.
Our storytellers understand how important it is to capture your loved ones. We devote special attention to your friends and family, especially the moments you might otherwise miss. We bring a photo-journalistic approach to our craft. We watch, observe, anticipate — documenting genuine emotions and natural moments in flattering ways.
Couples tell us all the time, “We’re awkward in front of the camera!” Don’t worry. We’re your partners. We’ll help you look amazing, natural, authentic and beautiful. When appropriate, we’ll offer gentle guidance and suggestions, inspiration and ideas. Our photographers know how body language, natural light and posing work together to create gorgeous images.
You’ve spent so much time and energy planning your special day, creating the vibe and setting the mood. We’ll document the details so you can cherish them forever.
