Just wrapped up the 2015 Seattle Wedding Show. The show takes place every year in January. This year there were over 400 vendors and around 7,500 guests all mingling, cheering on the dancing models in the fashion show, tasting wedding cake and planning their big events! 😉

Myself (and likely all vendors and SWS staff) are happily exhausted. LOL. But before I crash I want to be sure and thank a few people who made this year so special!

Special Thanks to:

Mariachi, Tequila and Late Night Tacos!

By | Bainbridge Island Wedding Videographer, Seattle Wedding Videographer | No Comments

On October 10th we we’re thrilled to film Miguel & Carrey’s Mexican Wedding at the Newcastle Golf Club. This was honestly one of my all-time FAVORITE weddings! The couple was absolutely incredible and all about having a great time with friends and family. They even let me join in and dance with the groom (after I pinned money on his suit of course!) What a riot!

They entered the ceremony with music from a professional mariachi band. On exit guests were given Coronas and ushered to the cocktail party while the couple went to sign their marriage certificate. They did a traditional Mexican dance then had a 2nd band to rock the house while a late night taco bar was set-up for the guests. It was incredible!

the Saddest Call from a Bride . . .

By | Bainbridge Island Wedding Videographer, How to . . ., Seattle Wedding Videographer | No Comments

Late one night I received the saddest call from a Bride…

Apparently she hired a guy to film her wedding video and he didn’t deliver the video they had agreed upon (I won’t go into details about how unhappy she was with him or why because I don’t feel that would be right . . .). Needless-to-say she was very unhappy and deserved a real wedding video so I agreed to help.

Sofiya sent me the raw footage from her and Yanik’s wedding and I was able to sort through them and find clips that with a little editing and color correction magic would work. Unfortunately the original audio wasn’t captured correctly so we couldn’t create a longer wedding video but we could make her a highlight video of her big day.

Bainbridge Island our #1 Destination Wedding Venue!

By | Bainbridge Island Wedding Videographer, Gay Weddings | No Comments

We love Bainbridge Island for (at least) two reasons.

First, what’s not to love.  We wander through the shops in Winslow, take our dogs for hikes on all the trails, and visit my Dad who lives there.

And second, what a great place to get married.  As someone who’s recently married and in the “marriage business” I can spot a great venue when I see one and Bainbridge has several.  Think Manor House at Pleasant Beach, IslandWood, Bloedel Reserve, and Kiana Lodge (yes, I know it’s technically Poulsbo but it’s too great not to include).

As far as we can tell Pixel Dust Weddings is the only Seattle Wedding Video company who will shoot weddings on Bainbridge Island and NOT charge an overnight fee.  We only charge to ride the ferry and if things run late it’s just an excuse to visit my Dad for overnight.

So we’ve been anxious to work on Bainbridge and are delighted to announce our first contract to shoot a wedding to be held at Kiana Lodge in September.  We can’t wait!!!

If you’re planning a wedding soon consider Bainbridge as a great “destination wedding venue” and choose Pixel Dust to be your Bainbridge Island Videographer.  Check us out on Yelp, MyWedding, WeddingWire, Facebook and any other source. 

Mt Rainier Wedding & “Same-Day Edit” Packages

By | Bainbridge Island Wedding Videographer, Seattle Wedding Videographer | No Comments

After such a wonderful experience doing a same day edit for Alexis + Brian,
Pixel Dust begins offering ‘Same-Day Edit Packages.’

On Friday, September 13th I filmed Alexis + Brian’s Wedding at Mt. Rainier National park on the Nisqually Vista trail at Paradise Point. The couple chose to keep it small since the location was difficult to access and then planned a larger reception for the following day in Seattle for their friends and family. Since their friends and most of their family couldn’t be in attendance they asked if I could create an extended highlight reel (a mini wedding video) for them to share at their reception. So I did an overnight edit (“same-day” or less than 24 hour turnaround) and they were able to show it on the big screen (as well as see it for the first time themselves) the next evening.

Here is what Alexis (the bride) emailed me the following week:

“We LOVED our video! So did everyone else, about 150 people saw it on Saturday and I got compliments all night about it. Thank you so, so much! “

Getting emails like that is why I do what I do! I’m so thrilled she loved it and had so much fun shooting it that I’m in the works of putting together an “Extended Highlight Video – Overnight Edit Package” right now. Be sure to check back on our “packages” page for info on this great new deal soon!


I’d like to take a moment to give a shout out to a dear friend and amazing Photographer Lindsey Pavlyuchek of LMPav Photography. Lindsey has been a Professional Photographer for many years. She started in Florida and now resides in the Pacific Northwest. She has recently started shooting weddings and I am absolutely blown away by her wedding photos from this event! She was gracious enough to pick up this gig last minute and the fact that she was able to work with the Bride’s budget when other photographers wouldn’t. Alexis + Brian were thrilled with her work and I’ll definitely recommend her again!

Lindsey is easy to find either on LMPav Photography’s web site or on her Facebook Page.
