“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.

"I can't emphasize enough how happy I am with my wedding video! It brought tears to my eyes and was so great to relive the moment. The music, the audio clips and the vision was everything I could have asked for and more. If you're reading this review, this is what I want you to take away: Stop searching! I searched for weeks online looking for a videographer. I read hundreds of reviews and watched more wedding videos than one probably ever should. Dan is so easy to work with; he's extremely professional and has an amazing talent for capturing all of the beautiful moments you will share with your special someone on your big day. Thank you Dan for this amazing video that we'll keep for many years to come, we couldn't be happier!” ~Joanne & Doug

Wedding Highlight Video
Wedding highlight films are the most important part of Seattle wedding videography packages. Highlight videos are 4 to 7 minutes long. They feature the best moments from your wedding day. Skilled editors craft your moments together into a stunning and beautiful film you'll love watching forever. Highlight videos also include licensed music and spoken words. Some couples ask their wedding videographer to film letters, vows, gift exchanges or other emotional moments.
Full Video of Ceremony
Wedding videographer packages include a full video of your ceremony. This video contains your entire wedding ceremony from beginning to end. Our filmmakers record the processional, flower girl, bridesmaids and groom walking down the aisle. Of course, we also film the bride walking down the aisle with her father. It's an emotional moment you'll want to remember forever. We use wireless microphones to record high-quality sound. Our microphones attach to the groom's jacket or officiant's clothing. In a church, we'll ask the priest or pastor to wear a professional microphone or we'll use the venue's sound system.
Full Video of Toasts and Speeches
You'd be amazed how many couples say they don't remember anything from their toasts or speeches! As a result, a full video of toasts is included in our Seattle wedding videography packages. We record the speeches using professional wireless microphones and our cinema cameras. You'll love looking back at the jokes, tears and memorable moments from your loved ones.
Everyone loves aerial videography! Sound Originals is Part 107 Certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. Couples love drone footage in their wedding videography package. Gorgeous sunsets, mountains and landscapes filmed from the air. Drone footage is included at no extra charge in most of our pricing packages.
Number of Wedding Videographers
Our wedding videography pricing includes one or two videographers. We'd love to help you pick the perfect package based on your wedding, guest size, budget and other special considerations for your venue. If you're getting married in a church, two videographers is usually a good idea. That way, we can film the groom's reaction when he sees the bride walking down the aisle for the first time. Many grooms cry! Two videographers will be able to capture his tears.
Raw footage is available in some of our packages. It's usually 3 to 5 hours worth of 4K footage or HD footage.
Documentary Edit or Film
Do you want a longer highlight video? A wedding documentary film may be perfect for you. Our editors craft a feature film version of your wedding video. We'll incorporate more aspects from your ceremony and toasts.

"We looked high and low for a wedding photographer. Sound Originals won hands down, because they had something that trumped the other person. He could do both Photography and Videography. For the couple that's on a budget, we could still stay in budget without sacrificing quality. Now on to the pictures themselves, when I saw everything I was really blown away. Looking at the images, they are vivid and captures the moment perfectly. When I look at them it's as if it is our wedding day all over again. Dan is a really nice guy, responds quickly to your emails and easy to work with. We had a stress free wedding, and he directs us well making the photos look more relaxed and natural, he has a way of capturing the moment. Over all an excellent choice!" ~ Janne + Danny
Is a wedding videographer worth it?
Heck yes! When your wedding day is over, the only things you'll have left are your photography and videography. Photographs are wonderful. But videography tells a completely different side of your story. You'll hear the toasts. You'll hear the sounds of the venue. The birds chirping. The waterfalls, rivers and natural sounds. You'll hear the laughing, crying, excitement of your bridal party in the getting ready room. As the top Seattle wedding videographer, we're experts at capturing your important wedding moments. Even the powerhouse website The Knot agrees that hiring a PNW wedding videographer is totally, definitely, 100 percent a must!
How much is a photographer and videographer for a wedding?
Couples enjoy savings when booking a photographer and videographer for a wedding from the same company. According to articles on Brides.com, couples spend anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 for photographers and a similar cost range for videography. Sound Originals offers fantastic photography and videography package bundles so couples can save money while still getting top quality results.
Why are wedding videographers so expensive?
We understand ho expensive it is to plan a wedding in Seattle. It's overwhelming to see WeddingWire's figures for typical PNW wedding budgets! Sound Originals tries to be an affordable Seattle wedding videographer. We want you to understand there's much more that goes into wedding videography than just filming your wedding day. Editing is an enormous amount of time. It's a labor of love, but it's time-consuming. Your Seattle wedding videographer will comb through all the footage - 3 to 5 hours worth. We'll watch your special moments: the bride putting on her dress, her mother buttoning the back of the wedding dress, the first look, the toasts, the vows, and the dancing. We'll pick the most memorable moments and weave them together into a highlight video that's fun to watch. Sound Originals was named "Top 5" for Seattle wedding videography by the editor of WeddingRule.
How do you charge for wedding videography?
Like most Seattle wedding videographers, we charge for wedding packages. Our typical packages include one or two wedding videographers who are experienced and skilled filmmakers. Our packages include a highlight video that weaves together the best moments from your marriage into a film that's about 6 minutes long. You can also add extra hours to your coverage so the videographer will arrive earlier or stay later.
How long is a normal wedding video?
Every PNW wedding videographer will give you a different answer. At Sound Originals, our highlight films are 5 to 7 minutes. We think this is the perfect length to tell your story. We use licensed music woven together with spoken words from your vows and toasts. This is also a typical length for a highlight wedding film according to our friends at Zola. Documentary edits and full feature films might be longer.
Who are the best wedding videographers in Seattle?
WE ARE! Half kidding, of course. There is no such thing as the best wedding videographer. Websites like Junebug claim to rank the "Best Wedding Videographers," but they only list one or two companies! (HINT: It's because only one or two companies pay Junebug to be listed!!) It's important to watch as many wedding films as you can. Determine the filmmaking style you like best. Do you prefer romantic footage? Cinematic style? Documentary or photojournalistic approaches? Each wedding videographer in Seattle will have a slightly different technique. You should also ask about equipment. Sound Originals uses Sony, Canon and Panasonic cameras filming in HD or 4K.
What is a reasonable price for a wedding videographer?
It's hard to define the word reasonable. A reasonable price means something different to everyone. Wedding planners usually suggest allocating a certain percentage of your overall wedding budget to videography. Most couples set aside 10 to 30 percent of their budget for photography. If video is important to you, we suggest spending a similar amount on your wedding videography.
How did you win your Emmy Awards?
Our head storyteller and owner, Dan Cassuto, won 5 Emmys for his storytelling as a television journalist and reporter for NBC, ABC and CBS local stations. KING 5's Evening profiled Dan when he launched Sound Originals. Our lead videographer, Doug, earned more than 50 Emmy Awards as a television videographer.

"Dan was our photographer and videographer for our wedding. When I first searched him up after stumbling upon him on Google, my husband and I were blown away by his amazing photos. We could tell he knew how to capture the magic in every shot he took. He also has such a great sense of humor and made us feel so comfortable. During our engagement photo shoot, he made us laugh so much making the whole process so easy. We loved that he is so chill yet so professional. Not once did we feel pressured or rushed. The wedding photos came out unbelievably well (and quicker than we expected!). We could tell that Dan spent a great amount of time editing. We were so impressed with how many beautiful moments he was able to get! The video was also amazing! Everything that we wanted to remember was in it. My husband and I got teary-eyed all over again watching it. We kept saying how romantic he made it look. We felt like stars in a movie trailer! Working with him was probably my favorite out of all the different vendors I had for my wedding day. So many of my friends observed him while he was taking photos and were admiring his professionalism and dedication. I felt so proud to say that he was my photographer and videographer. Please consider Dan and you will NOT be disappointed! And if you were looking for something specific, he is more than happy to help meet that vision." ~ Cassie & Jowell
