Sitting in my car on a drizzly June morning, waiting and pleading with the sun to come out I wondered what my first social distancing wedding would feel like. A few minutes later the sun broke and a while after that I saw a well dressed man with a huge smile on his face strolling down the hill. From that moment on I forgot about worries and remembered why I do this, love. On that beach, there wasn’t a covid backup plan of a wedding, there was the real thing to its fullest extent. I couldn’t have been more honored to be a little part of James and Ron’s big day and I am looking forward to the rest of this season whatever it may be with confidence, optimism, and a lot of love. I also would like to do a shout out to David Cooper from Forever, Together – Western Washington Wedding Officiants for performing the lovely ceremony.
I love filming at the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington. They have amazing getting ready rooms, the ceremony and backup ceremony spots have tons of light, and the reception space is killer for 200+ people weddings. Did I even mention the view looking north on lake Washington with the Seattle skyline just peaking through? This venue really has it all.

Kiana Lodge, just a short ferry ride from Seattle is one of the PNW’s best destination wedding locations. There are not many wedding venues where you and 100+ of your closest friends and family can come together in such splendid scenery. Typically in large gala weddings you have to sacrifice on the decor and location to fit everyone in, but not here. You really do have it all from Ocean front property, exquisitely manicured gardens that somehow still feel wild and a wooden banquet hall that is one of a kind. Really a joy for a videographer to make a wedding video here.
Nowhere could filming wedding videos be simpler and more joyful then at Rein Fire Ranch. Literally every direction you look, from the dense green evergreen forests to stunning mountain peaks, and did I say horses cause yea they got that. Any bride that is into horses this is your venue. As a wedding videographer I love the country charm of this place and it was perfect for Kayla and Cameron who tied the knot here in early summer.

Ever wonder where is the best waterfront wedding location is near Seattle? If this is you then you have to check out the Woodmark hotel in Kirkland WA. This is one of my all time favorite locations for wedding videography.
Here is a beautiful example of a spring wedding filmed in 2019 from the Woodmark Hotel. Congrats to Katie and Tim!
