3-time recipient of the King 5 / Best of Western Washington "Best Wedding Videographer" Award!
"We hired Seattle Wedding Videography for our wedding and after the experience, I have no hesitation in recommending them for yours! They are very professional, work is top quality and their prices are excellent. Ryan met us over a cup of coffee a week before the wedding. He does this with all his customers. This is really important because you can have a clear discussion about expectations to avoid any kind of problems later. Sarah filmed our wedding, and she was fantastic! It looked like she was in stealth mode as we never noticed her during the wedding, but she managed to capture every moment really well. Ryan does the video editing. He did an excellent job! He prepared the review DVDs very soon after the wedding and mailed us the disks. Reviewing the disks gave us a lot of freedom in terms of editing, and put us in control of what we want the final video to look like. The communication was timely and Ryan got back to us quickly with answers to questions and changes that we wanted. We loved the work they did and happily recommend them to friends and family. Thanks Seattle Wedding Videography, we can relive our wedding day because of you."

"Seattle Wedding Videography was so amazing to work with! I panicked weeks before our wedding and decided that I needed to have a videographer. They responded the same day to my initial email, set up an appointment quickly and made sure to find the right videographer for our day. They were extremely easy to work with, very receptive to ideas and input as well as organized. Mason was our day of videographer and did a wonderful job capturing all the important moments and was invisible the whole day and it never felt forced or overwhelming to have him with us. The final edits were done by the owner of the company and you could tell how much he cared to make sure we were happy with the final DVD. Not only did we have all the footage we wanted, but we also were able to add songs throughout the DVD and he made us a custom cover for the DVD sleeve. It is SO unique for a company to allow you to have any input on your wedding footage and not only do they allow it, they encourage it and go back and forth with you until you're happy with the final footage. Their prices were more than fair and extremely competitive. I couldn't recommend them more!"
- Jana & Brian, Seattle WA
“Thank you Ryan for your wonderful work from start to finish! The DVD turned out beautiful and Zack did wonderful work during our wedding. We never noticed him during the dancing and he was so up-close! Fantastic! Thank you for always answering emails quickly, affordable pricing and all around making us feel special :)”
- Sarah & Nathan, Issaquah WA
“SWV is AMAZING!!! I am forever grateful that we went with them for our wedding! Ryan got back to me with a quote on the same day I contacted him. I was worried something would go wrong because we had a 2 day wedding, but let me tell you, it turned out to be so beautiful. We met with Ryan prior to the wedding day to discuss every detail and I am glad we did, he made us feel very comfortable and assured us everything would go smoothly. Ryan was our videographer for one day and Sarah was our videographer the next day. Ryan and Sarah both came on time and just started doing their thing. They were very settle and it didn't seem like there was a big elephant in the room. They went with the flow of the party, didn't miss out on anything. Sarah was great! They know what they are doing and they are great at it. We don't regret anything, everyone worked out so well. The production time was very fast. The wedding videos were done within 2 weeks after the wedding. Ryan explained every detail to us. We were able to edit our own wedding and decide if everything was in place and had a nice flow to it. Couldn't have went any smoother. We are so so so grateful for choosing SWV. We recommend them to anyone! Thank you Ryan, Sarah, and team SWV for a beautiful wedding that we will now have forever!!!!”
- Sejla & Adem, Seattle WA
"Ryan is so awesome to work with! I knew nothing about videography while planning the wedding, except that I knew I wanted a videographer for it! Ryan answered all my questions along the way and make the planning process so easy! We are so happy that we have the whole day on video to be able to watch over and over again and share with friends and family! Sarah was the videographer for us and she was filming for almost 12 hours and I hardly noticed she was there! Would definitely recommend Seattle Wedding Videography! Thank you Ryan Graves and team for capturing our special day!"
- Jana & Lyle, Seattle WA
"Seattle Wedding Videography is amazing! From the moment I met Ryan to do our pre-wedding consultation I was so excited for him to be our videographer for our wedding. He is hilarious, professional, and so great at what he does! He was great at keeping in contact with us before and after the wedding. He talked to us about what we were looking for in our video and he got so many details that I didn't even think to tell him about. The day of our wedding he was on time and did a great job of making all of us comfortable when he started filming. When I got our highlight video I was so excited and couldn't wait for the whole thing. He was very quick and wasted no time getting our review DVD to us. I absolutely love all the moments and details he captured of our day. The video flows really well and the songs he used are perfect! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. I really felt like he actually cared about us and wanted our day to be amazing and special. I have had multiple people tell me how much they loved our videographer and how well he interacted with everyone at the wedding."
- Danielle & Alex, Kent WA
"Both Ryan (the organizer and editor) and Sarah (the videographer at our wedding) were a pleasure to work with. Ryan always responded quickly to my emails. He made planning easy! I appreciated that he took the time to meet with us before our wedding to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted and to make sure we understood his and his videographer's process. It is clear he loves what he does, and that shines through both when you meet him and on the final product. He wants you to be happy, and he does everything possible to accomplish that including allowing you to give feedback on a review DVD before he provides the final version. SWV's prices are very competitive too. I highly recommend Ryan and his crew!"
- Gina & Matthew, Redmond WA
"We got married on January 31st 2015 and we hired Seattle Wedding Videography for our wedding and they did a fantastic job. When we first made contact with Ryan, he emailed us back within 30 minutes answering all of our questions and he gave us two quotes. One quote for just the raw footage and another for SWV producing the video. We originally chose to just have raw footage and Ryan told us that if we decided to we could have him produce the film at a later date. Eventually we chose to have him produce it because we got really busy after the wedding. Since our wedding was so busy and crazy, this is a great reminder of the best day of our lives. When we met with Ryan he was so nice and answered even more questions that we had. He informed us that he himself would not be filming our wedding and that one of his other videographers would be and he assured us that all of the other videographers are very professional. When his staff are filming you don’t even notice they are there. They are never in the way, and they use very advanced equipment. They also get the best shots and angles. During the ceremony they will get should from the camera mic and they use a wireless mic to get what you and your spouse say. That way they can pick up your vows and even what the officiant says. They also set up an area where your guests can give you well wishes during the reception. Ryan will work with you on producing the DVD. He will put together a preview DVD and send it to you with a sheet of adjustments that you wish to make. He will change the font and even the music if you want. He will create a DVD cover out of your wedding pictures, which is just fantastic. All the cameras are in HD so you will get HD picture even if videos are not Blu-ray. The only problem we had was the sound dipped in one place on the video and we don’t know why. It wasn’t their fault. They did a fantastic job and if you want someone who actually care you should hire them for your next wedding. They will do everything to make sure you are taken care of. They did a fantastic job and we will definitely hire them again for any future event we will have. In the words of Ryan, ‘Congratu-almost-lations!’"
- Andrew & Viktoriya, Seattle WA
"Excellent videography company! Ryan is very professional and friendly and did a great job with our wedding. His rates for shooting and editing are very reasonable as well. He met us for lunch to discuss the details which was very helpful. You could tell he has shot a lot of weddings. He provided both the raw video and an edited video for use to review and provide edits. Ryan is always very friendly, responsive and patient. Our final video looked great and we couldn't be happier. I would definitely recommend him to anyone having a wedding in the Seattle area.”
- Justin & Katerina, Kirkland WA
"Working with Seattle Wedding Videography was sooooo easy! We were working with a tight budget and having our wedding captured on film was something that was really important to me. Ryan was really great in working with our budget and still making sure we captured all the things we wanted to see. He was super nice when we met and very quick to respond to my emails. We got our DVD VERY quickly too and it was beautiful! The best thing was that I can be very camera shy but I didn't even notice them there! They even caught some moments and I said to my husband "I didn't know they were there for that." Great service, great product, what more could you ask for?"
- Marissa & Stephen, Bellevue WA
"Ryan and the staff from Seattle Wedding Videography was very professional. They made things quick and easy for us and our video turned out great! They were able to capture all of our special moments with awesome video quality!"
- Denise & Devon, Covington WA
"Selecting wedding vendors can be overwhelming and intimidating--but it doesn't have to be. There's a reason Seattle Wedding Videography has high reviews and dominates the 'Best of Western Washington' in terms of videography. It's well deserved, and you owe it to yourself to give them an interview. Personality: I can't speak for the other videographers within the Seattle Wedding Videography portfolio, but Ryan (owner) himself is warm, funny, engaging, and deeply passionate about both his customers and weddings in general. It's hard not to get excited with him in the room. It's clear he loves what he does and it comes across in the work. Further, he's going to go a bit above and beyond to make your day special--in our case he provided tunes from his phone while my wife got ready. Pricing: Pricing wise we found Seattle Wedding Videography to be very reasonable when compared with other local offerings. I'd say you're getting roughly a 20% discount versus the other professional videographers in a similar league out there. The contract is clear and concise. The charges make sense and are explained. There is flexibility based around your schedule/location/day. Everything was pretty straight up and you don't feel you're being 'nickel and dimed'. Footage: Ryan was able to successfully get all the footage from getting ready, to the build up, to family shots, to the entire event, to the reception and speeches. No key moments were lost. Littered in between was some 'B Roll' of the venue and decorations. There's no gaping holes or key moments that were missed. A nice touch was some interviews with our friends/family as the reception wound down. There was definitely no lack of footage. Production: Seattle Wedding Videography is very interested in making sure your final product has your own special touch. You choose the songs. You choose the cover art. You choose the chapters. During the review process you can edit down to the individual frames as needed. You have a ton of flexibility and control, and they'll work with you to get it right. Final Thoughts: If you take a look through my reviews you'll find that I'm a tough bell-curve grader with most businesses showing up around a solid three stars. That said, Seattle Wedding Videography goes above and beyond and earns five stars for me with the value and dedication. Is Seattle Wedding Videography perfect? No. I think if you really want a movie level production you should be looking elsewhere (multiple cameras/more B footage/artistic feel), but be prepared to spend two or three times as much. Can you beat the overall experience given the people and the value? I'd say it's going to be awfully tough to."
- Aaron & Holly, Lynnwood WA
"Hire them! DO IT! I am so happy we found Seattle Wedding Videography. Ryan is amazing not only as a videographer but as a person. When you book him he will meet with you and go through every single detail with you which takes away a lot of stress let me tell you. Day of he was on time and stayed until the very end. He was able to capture some really great moment and created some of his own. We are very, VERY happy with the results!"
- Sara & Josh, Monroe WA
"After hours of researching videographers, we finally decided to reach out to Ryan to see if he would be a perfect fit to our perfect day! After our first meeting we knew immediately that he would be perfect! He's funny, laid-back, and you can tell right away that he has a passion for love and capturing it on video. My husband and I are both fairly busy people, and also forgetful, and Ryan was SO patient and understanding when it took us forever to respond to his emails! I know Ryan is also a busy guy, with lots of other weddings to capture, but every time I sent an email, I got a response right back! It felt like I was his only customer and his top priority! Because of his professionalism there was not a moment as a bride-to-be where I felt frazzled, stressed, or pressured in the videography part of the wedding. As all brides know, it's hard to remember your wedding because it's a day filled with go-go-go! Ryan did a fantastic job being everywhere and capturing all the important moments, and moments that I didn't even know happened! He also asked the right questions for the interview and was always at the right place at the right time and made an amazing movie of our wedding that my husband and I can watch every year! We can't thank him enough for capturing our wedding so that we don't have to try to remember every little bit... he did it all for us! If you or anyone you know is looking for a videographer, call Ryan, I promise he won't disappoint!"
- Mariko & Jacob, Bellevue WA
"I am so blessed and grateful to have used Seattle Wedding Videography. Ryan was such a pleasure to work with and made the process and experience so easy. He made sure to walk us through every step and listen to what was important to us. He wants to make sure to tailor each video to the uniqueness of every couple and have their video reflect their personality. To be honest, we did not want to spend the extra money to have a videographer, but after talking to Ryan I knew it was going to be a good choice that I was glad we made. I would definitely recommend it to everyone so they don't miss out on truly capturing their day. We are so happy we decided to have Ryan there to provide us with something we will cherish for many years to come. He is so good at what he does and knows exactly what he is doing in every way to provide you with quality work. He communicates with you throughout the whole process even after the wedding to make sure you are happy with every detail of his work and it is what you want and dreamed of. We got our Review video so quickly, we were also able to see a small preview video on our honeymoon which made it fun to relive our day after the fact. It's crazy how on your wedding day it becomes such a whirlwind that you tend to forget what happened besides the pictures and video you have to look back on. It was incredible to see the finished product of what he did to capture every detail that made our wedding so special to us and exactly what we want to have to remember our Wedding for the rest of our lives. I would recommend everyone having a video of their wedding and using Seattle Wedding Videography as their number 1 choice, you will not regret it."
- Megan & Greg, Seattle WA
"My wife and I wanted to use a videographer for our wedding but we were near the top of our budget. We searched and searched and couldn't find anyone in our price range that looked like they would do quality work. We basically gave up and decided we wouldn't use one. About a month before the wedding my wife decided to check one more time on a whim. We found Ryan and Seattle Wedding Videography. They were priced way below anybody else and had won a bunch of awards. We met with Ryan and he was so excited for the opportunity to work with us. He was so positive about everything and reassuring. He took our requests for what we wanted and was very professional and fun to meet with. The wedding was great and he got us an edited video in the mail. The video was beautiful and edited very well. And when we kept missing deadlines and taking way too long to get back to him on additional edits and fine tuning we wanted, he stayed positive and helpful the entire time (though he had every right to be frustrated with how long we were taking). Seattle Wedding Videography went over and above everything we expected of them. They were awesome and we'd recommend them to anybody else looking into using them."
- Ryan & Sara, Shoreline WA
"As soon as we contacted Ryan we knew we were going to have a great experience. He was very professional and quick to respond to our questions. The videographer for our wedding was outstanding. She captured the best moments in the best locations. Our favorite part was that she was almost invisible the entire time. The DVD of the evening we received was excellent. The editing was perfect. We would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants their big day to be remembered almost as vividly as the day itself."
- Craig & Rachel, Seattle WA
"We hired Seattle Wedding Videography to be our wedding videographer on September 27th, 2014. They were great to work with! Before our wedding we met with Ryan in person to go over the shots we were looking for and he reviewed what we can expect from them on our wedding day. Ryan was very friendly and welcoming and you can tell he really enjoys his job. On the day of our wedding. Mason was our videographer. We actually barely noticed him the day of the wedding but he was there on time and did a great job getting the shots we wanted without being in the way. After the wedding Ryan gave us a shortened preview of our wedding footage within one day! We had our full copy of the edited footage within a week! Throughout the process Ryan was extremely responsive, friendly and professional and I would definitely recommend Seattle Wedding Videography! Overall, the level of service was amazing for the price to capture a busy, but wonderful day!"
- Kyle & Brittani, Bellevue WA
"Ryan was wonderful to work with! He really put my mind at ease (very quick to reply to my many emails) and our video turned out perfect. When we met with him before the wedding, he was extremely thorough and made sure we got exactly what we wanted :) He also did a wonderful job collaborating with all of our other venders, thank you so much!"
- Sara & John, Lynnwood WA
"It was a real pleasure working with Ryan! We felt really overwhelmed with all of our wedding planning, but our meeting with Ryan was perhaps the easiest part of it all. He walked us through the process and answered all of our questions. Even after the footage is captured, Ryan follows up with you to make sure that everything appears as you'd like it to. It's so nice to have our wedding day captured on film and we're glad that we went with Seattle Wedding Videography. I would definitely recommend Ryan and his team to anyone!”
- Joyce & Wooram, Redmond WA
"The Seattle Wedding Videography team was exceedingly easy to work with! Ryan is incredible! From fitting us in last minute, to getting our review materials to us faster than I ever thought possible, Ryan made the process enjoyable and easy. My husband and I were lucky to work with Ryan. If you choose Seattle Wedding Videography you can expect professional work, amazingly patient, personable people, prompt customer service and all at a reasonable price point!"
- Benjamin & Marcia, Everett WA
"I would definitely recommend using Seattle Wedding Videography to capture your big day. It's so amazing to be able to sit down with your spouse and relive the day all over again. Having the actual DVD is equally if not more important than having the photos. Seattle Wedding Videography is reasonably priced, very responsive thru the process, and Ryan lets you review your DVD before making the final product. Overall both my husband and I were very happy with our DVD!"
- Missy & Michael, Seattle WA
"My husband and I are so grateful for Seattle Wedding Videography! Choosing to have a video of our wedding day was such an important and worthwhile investment. Our video shows all the special moments of our day and it was SO fun to have a movie night together watching our wedding day. It brought back incredible memories and moments. There is something so special about knowing that forever I will be able to watch our video and be reminded of what a beautiful and incredible day we had. Seattle Wedding Videography has such good customer service and passion for what they do. They treat their customers like nothing else matters other than their day they want videographed. They are flexible and patient. They take the time to get to know you and it shows when the video you receive completely reflects your personalities and interests. If you are on the fence about whether or not you want video of your wedding or are not sure you have room in your budget for it, trust me and go with your gut feeling that you need a video!! You will have the entire story and movie of your wedding day! You can hear and see yourselves and the people you love express how special the day was. You do not want to regret not having a video. Watch some of the videos they have posted online and you will be convinced! Best decision we made! Thank you Seattle Wedding Videography!"
- Molly & TJ, Marysville WA
"My husband and I had a very positive experience working with Seattle Wedding Videography and Ryan. Ryan is a very happy and positive person, and is very quick to respond to all inquiries and e-mails (the quickest of our vendors). He makes a point to meet with his clients in person before the wedding to go over the process, answer questions, and establish a person-to-person connection. On the day of the wedding, the actual videographer (not Ryan - Ryan does the editing - or at least in our case) was very much behind-the-scenes (in a good way). I don't remember ever being aware of the videographer's lens or annoyed or anything like that - no bright lights or feeling overly self-conscious on the dance floor. In terms of the final product, the actual video - it was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. It captures our day and the highlight moments, and is done tastefully and in some instances, slightly artfully. Getting a videographer turned out to be a really good decision for us, even though we were hesitant about that initially. I think we will appreciate the video more and more each passing year. It's really fun to watch the DVD with your parents and remember the awesome day together. It's really fun to watch the DVD just the two of you to remember the day together. It's so great to see the little details that the video captures - things you may not have noticed on the actual day, and details you might forget. For example, during the ceremony, when we were all supposed to 'lower our heads in prayer,' my husband kept looking around and then noticed my head was bowed and eventually, prayed. It was pretty funny! There are so many details that photography just wouldn't catch. All this being said, Seattle Wedding Videography was a budget-friendly (yet very high quality) way to get all this. We are pleased."
- Lindsay & Terrence, Seattle WA
"My husband lives in AZ and I live in WA. He is in the Air Force and our long distance relationship turned into the long distance marriage. As I watched most of my friends got married way before I did....I watched them becoming a happily engaged girls to very stressed out brides. I swear I thought I can do better than them. Boy. I was wrong! Having a fiancé few states away simply made everything worst. However, hiring Ryan, Seattle wedding photography was simply the best wedding experience. Hiring a wedding videographer was a sweet gift from my lovely brother and a last minutes decision. I was a total stress ball and everyday, I said, I can't wait for the wedding preparation to be over. I Googled a wedding videographer and Ryan was the first one from the Google search result. I clicked the link and it lead me to the Yelp reviews. Everyone loved Ryan and his videographers. So I emailed him and he replied right away. He is very quick and efficient with responses. His videographers are called Ninja of the wedding videography and that was very true too. My guy is very camera shy and our wonderful videography lady was a total Ninja! She wasn't in anyone's face and worked around the events beautifully without missing crucial details. Seattle videography creates well edited natural wedding video, provides excellent (the best!) customer service and well designed package as well. I also loved their price range. They are reasonably priced and that is very important when a bride has a budget. Now that my wedding is over I love watching my wedding video time to time. It was the best gift ever and I am so glad I have them. Wedding day goes by way too quickly and the live video brings out such a vivid details wedding photography can't."
- Katie & Nathan, Kent WA
"Ryan did an outstanding job! He is someone you can trust and count on to film the best day of your life. The music and captions that Ryan used went perfect with my video and I couldn't have asked for anything better. It was a pleasure to work with him and if you are looking for someone to do an amazing job on your big day he is the right choice for you!"
- Kelsey & Jordan, Mukilteo WA
"When I saw our wedding video, I literally cried. Since that day just flew by, we hardly remember certain moments. Looking back on our DVD gives us that chance to relive our wedding day time and time again. Our videographer, Mason, in one word. Ninja!!! Besides for the "getting ready" moments, we never saw him. Which is what you want in your videographer. You don't want him disrupting the ceremony or in all your wedding pictures in the background, you want them to be as invisible as possible and that's what he did. I will admit, when I first went looking for a videography company, I was SUPER nervous, because that is a lot of trust you're putting into some one else's hands that you don't know. After meeting with the owner, Ryan, I felt like he was instantly part of the family. Very kind, funny, and VERY dedicated to his work. All and all, I couldn't have picked a better company to get the job done, and do it PERFECT!!!!"
- Stephanie & Greg, Bellingham WA
"Ryan was really great and easy to work with. He really made the process easy and worry free, which is a big deal when you have to worry about so much during a wedding! He replied to all my emails promptly; answered all my questions. The video came out AMAZING! Loved every second. The editing was phenomenal; the shots taken by the Videographer were outstanding. I had a great experience with them and will definitely recommend Seattle Wedding Videography for all of your filming needs!"
- Delma & Ricardo, Monroe WA
"Ryan did a great job at our wedding. He captured all the big moments and even got well wishes from our friends for us. We were able to review a first cut of our video within a week of our wedding and when we provided feedback and requests, Ryan was very responsive (usually less than a day). By far, this was the best price we could find, and we didn't just get a highlight reel as some other videographers do, we got nearly an hour long video plus all of the raw footage."
- Julia & Vonnel, Seattle WA
"I have nothing but positive things to say about Ryan!! Ryan was fantastic to work with and literally responded so fast it was as if he was already replying to my mail before I sent it!! We got a wonderful price, a very experienced videographer, ALLLLLLL of the amazing footage of such a special day and then we even got a sneak peek of what our video was going to look like and the chance to add a few edits such as personalized song selections. It couldn't have been a better purchase for the wedding. Ryan and his whole team are a delight to work with and I cannot say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU enough to Seattle Wedding Videography!!! Thank you for making an incredibly unique day even more memorable!!!"
- Teala & Branden, Bothell WA
"Very nice experience with them. Everything at the wedding went smoothly with the videography. It's like I didn't even notice that they were there. Ryan was very good at communicating especially if you contact via email. Everything had to be approved by us first before he finalized the DVD. Good quality and he even puts a clip of the video on his YouTube. I would recommend Seattle Wedding Videography to anyone who's getting married =)"
- Warrentt & Donnaliz, Kent WA
"In one word, AMAZING! Ryan was so easy to work with. He was extremely personable, fun, and professional all at the same time. His work is undoubtedly one in a million! His talent and eye for video is extraordinary. We were beyond thrilled with our video. I even referred Ryan to a friend of mine before he shot our wedding. I could sense his talent when I first met him for coffee to do our meet and greet. As the saying goes, when you know, you just know. We sure did! If you want quality without breaking the piggy bank, Seattle Wedding Videography is whom to contact to relive your wedding for the rest of your lives!"
- Trisha & Mike, Lynnwood WA
"Seattle Wedding Videography truly lived up to their expectations! We decided to work with them on fairly short notice and they were so understanding and flexible through all communications. Their work is beautiful and I will forever have an AMAZING collection of memories from our special day because of their professionalism and kind hearts!"
- Ashley & Phil, Gilbert AZ
"Ryan was a pleasure to work with during our wedding planning and on our big day. From the beginning he was very responsive, timely and thorough. We definitely recommend him for any of your videography needs."
- Ashley & Khalif, Phoenix AZ
"Ryan was an amazing asset to our wedding day. He had great communication leading up to the event and got all the moments I could ever want captured with little direction. Ryan worked so well with our two photographers and created a video that myself, my husband and family and friends can enjoy for a lifetime. If you are looking for a videographer, I highly recommend Ryan. Originally, we weren't going to get a videographer, however Ryan worked with our budget and now I can't imagine our day without him. There are so many details throughout the day, that getting to watch your day over and over is such an amazing experience."
- Brittney & Tyler, Seattle WA
"We used Ryan for our destination wedding in Woodinville in May, 2014. Being that we are both active duty military, and we live in Arizona, we were not able to meet with Ryan (or any of his staff) in person prior to the event...so we knew we were taking a gamble with hiring someone based solely on online reviews. That being said, Ryan exceeded our expectations for a wedding videographer business owner. We had a Skype session with him, to take care of the finer details, and so that he could get to know us a bit. On the day of our wedding, his staff arrived on time, and were dressed professionally. They did a wonderful job capturing all of the little moments before and during the wedding evening. Ryan was very prompt with his editing, and he was patient with our hectic deployment schedules. He made a wonderful video for us, which required very few requests for changes. He just knew, instinctively, how to make the video great! I highly recommend Ryan services - they are affordable, reliable, and will give a you a very high quality and memorable video that you will cherish for the rest of your life."
- Amanda & Michael, Yuma AZ
"My husband and I used Ryan and Seattle Wedding Videography as our wedding videographer. We chose them because of their great rates and the friendliness and promptness Ryan showed in the beginning. I am a planner by nature so I started planning my wedding over a year out. Ryan was exceptional when we first met and we fell in love the first visit. He was always so quick to answer emails and always very friendly. Even when I started questioning EVERYTHING. The day of the wedding Ryan was GREAT. He truly is a video ninja. He was everywhere and nowhere at the same time. I mean you saw him but never really felt weird about being filmed. He was so quiet and ninja like I hardly noticed him. He helped make our day go smoothly. He sent out a 4 minute preview of our video while on the honeymoon which was awesome to see. We got our review DVD quickly after the wedding as well. While watching the video we were overwhelmed by how much thought and details Ryan put into making our video. He added special Disney touches to our video since we had a Disney theme. He caught all the little details and special moments throughout the night. Things we didn't even tell him about!! He was so great and we absolutely love our wedding DVD, For anyone out there wondering if it is worth it I will tell you it absolutely is and Ryan is the BEST. I have two last words.............. HIRE RYAN!!!!! or as I now call him...the video ninja..."
- Brittney & Kelly, Issaquah WA
"We highly recommend Seattle Wedding Videography to anyone looking to relive their wedding day through photography and video for years to come. My wife and I hired Ryan for our wedding and have been recommending them to family and friends ever since. Days before the wedding day, Ryan called us to go over the details to make sure he captured all the special moments most important to us. I’m a very detailed person in general, and he was quick to respond and always courteous, friendly, and professional. Ryan gives the kind of attention to your day that you yourself would give if you could be your own videographer. We really liked that the videographer was never in our way; we knew they were there of course, but they weren’t at all intrusive. We especially love the part in our video where Ryan captured our guest’s personal tribute messages to us… so special!! Ryan is very enthusiastic about his work and in turn our wedding day was absolutely amazing!!! Because of Seattle Wedding Videography, we can relive our “Special” day all over again through beautiful pictures and video. Ryan captured every detail we requested and more with great creativity. From the very first contact all the way through to receiving our video, we felt 100% confident that Seattle Wedding Videography was the right choice. Their dedication to perfection in product and customer attention is truly a welcome rarity."
- Leah & Miska, Federal Way WA
"I am so very happy to recommend this company. Seattle Wedding Videography did a phenomenal job at rescuing us from a big crisis... finding a videographer less than 16 hours before our wedding! They were so patient, kind, understanding and informative. They were prompt in getting back to us and forming a plan. The videographer did an amazing job at capturing all the small details of our reception, the little things that made our wedding unique to us. The editing process was awesome and incredibly timely. Ryan was fantastic to work with, patient and attentive to all our requests. I am so appreciative of this company and the work they did to be able to capture our union and all its laughter and joy, so that we can watch it for the rest of our lives! My husband and I went back and forth about having our wedding recorded by a videographer. He wanted to save money and I wanted to capture the ceremony, dances, speeches, facial expressions- all of it! so that we could replay our special day whenever we wanted to. We were at such opposite ends that I didn’t book Seattle Wedding Videography until the night before our wedding! While I would encourage you not to wait until that last minute (seriously) I would definitely encourage you to use this company! They were so prompt in sending over information, quotes, an extensive list of questions and details that they had to make sure they captured everything that we wanted. They were great to work with on our price, trying to make it the most affordable for us. We were emailing at 8pm the night before our wedding and then at 7am the day of the wedding. They were incredibly flexible, timely and expressed humor, patience and grace. In what could have been a disaster they were understanding and helped me to breathe a sigh of relief. The videographer who shot our wedding did a great job for showing up 15 minutes before the wedding (another thing I would not recommend doing). He captured some of the greatest scenes and had an artistic flare for picking up on the simplest decorations and attributes. While he captured the big things like the ceremony, toasts, first dance, etc its those little shots of the arbor we sat under, pictures from our guest book, or my favorite wine being poured into a glass that I appreciate so much. They are little glimpses of all the work we poured into making our day unique and special to us. The editing process was incredible! We received the speediest results after submitting feedback and our voices were heard as evidenced by the editing done. Ryan was endlessly patient with us and a joy to work with. Everything flowed so smoothly, the songs selected in the back ground were perfect, the images crisp, the fading in and out of footage was impeccable. I honestly cried when I watched the initial two minute intro, knowing that I had made the right choice in having someone there to film the day. I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Seattle Wedding Videography. They were a joy to work with and my only recommendation to you viewers is to contact them sooner than the night before your wedding! But even in crisis like ours they delivered better than I could have ever hoped for. I am eternally grateful for the fact that we will be able to share this day with our families and friends and relive it for the rest of our lives."
- Lindsey & Patrick, Seattle WA
"I used Seattle Wedding Videography as a last minute choice, even though I kept asking for quotes throughout the year. I kept going back and forth wondering if I really needed videography, but so glad I decided to have one. Ryan was so friendly during our meeting and really wanted to make sure we had the video we wanted. He really expresses how much he loves his wife too. He listened to what we wanted and listed it on his task sheet. After the wedding, we got our review DVD so quickly! We were still at our honeymoon when it arrived. We put our input and he adjusted them very quickly. It took longer for us to finalize the disc since we were still waiting on our photographer’s five images for the disc cover. This is the only vendor that had to wait for me to respond (rather than the other way around). I’m so glad I did not have to worry about their service. Seattle Wedding Videography is very prompt and budget friendly. They did a fantastic job! I would recommend them highly! Side tip: If you can afford it, you should hire two videographers. Since we had a lower budget, we only hired one, which was good enough, but I can only imagine how much better it could have been to hire two."
- Kimberlee & Alan, Lynnwood WA
"I have nothing but the best to say about the service and quality provided by Ryan and Josh. We decided on a videographer last minute when we found out that my grandparents were not going to be able to make the wedding. Ryan was so pleasant to meet with and fully listened to our requests for our special day. Seeing the quality of the footage and shots in the first cut of the DVD was extremely impressive. He listened to all feedback provided and implemented necessary changes to make sure it was exactly what we wanted for our final video. I cannot recommend enough choosing this team for your wedding day. Friendly, listens, great quality, and affordable. We would choose them all over again!"
- Lindsie & Brent, Seattle WA
"Seattle Wedding Videography is AMAZING. They met with us a time or 2 before our big day to get to know us, and to find out what we were looking for and our likes and dislikes so when the wedding day came, they not only knew exactly what we wanted filmed, but when it came time to make our DVD, they knew exactly the types of fonts & special effects and footage that we wanted shown. They answer emails/phone calls promptly, are very easy to talk to & nice to work with. Their camera men are professional & thorough & we are 1 million percent happy with our experience! We would recommend these guys to ANYONE. :)"
- Laura & Tom, Lynnwood WA
"Looking for a videographer for your wedding? Look no further!! I was not initially interested in a videographer for our wedding but I was introduced to Ryan when my sister was married about 6 months prior to my wedding, they were absolutely fantastic! My entire family said no matter what, we MUST use them! Every bit of interaction I had with Ryan and the entire Ryan team was far beyond what I expected. From the meeting for coffee to just chat, many emails to answer all of my questions, honest and open communication, experience at the wedding (I barely even knew they were there!), and final product, I HIGHLY recommend Seattle Wedding Videographer!!"
- Robin & Joe, Tacoma WA
"I will be honest, at first my fiancé and I were not sure we had enough in our budget for a videographer, and we were getting down to the wire with just a little over a month left till our wedding. Ryan did a friendly follow up with us (he is VERY prompt at responding) to see if we were going to move forward with Ryan, we explained our situation and he was more than helpful. He understood how important it is to have videography at a wedding and he customized a plan that fit our budget. We got to work with Sarah the day of, and she was so sweet! She was on time and ready, even though we were not! She was never in the way, and she captured some amazing moments between me and my now husband. We were very impressed with both Ryan and Sarah. I am SO thankful we chose Ryan!! Your wedding day goes by so fast that before you know it, its over. Our video allows us to relive our day over and over! We watch our video all the time! Thank you, Ryan and Sarah!"
- Alisha & Wes, Orting WA
"My husband and I were very impressed with the detail of our wedding video. There was so much excitement throughout the evening and our videographer did a spectacular job at capturing all the magic. More specifically, we were impressed with the creative and innovative angles of the camera. It was so evident how hard our videographer worked to capture every moment and create a magnificent memory for us to hold on to for the rest of our lives. We were thrilled with the final production! Our wedding videographer was thorough and efficient. When we first met, prior to the wedding, I only had a short amount of time to discuss everything and map out all of the details! I was accommodated kindly and professionally. On our wedding day, I only noticed our videographer on one occasion. More so, there wasn't one picture that he appeared in."
- Whitney & Kellen, Snohomish WA
"Seattle Wedding Videography did an amazing job with our wedding footage! We are so happy that we choose them because of their punctuality in responding to a bride's every need and interest in making our day special! Ryan will work with you to make sure that your wedding video is exactly what you want!"
- Maura & Casey, University Place WA
"When we were planning our wedding, my now husband and I were almost discouraged when we saw all the other prices out there. I found Seattle Wedding Videography online and sent an email, which Ryan replied to so quickly (which was extra incredible considering he was on an anniversary vacation in Mexico with his wife). From there on out, Ryan continued to impress. He offered pricing on a case by case basis, which was awesome because who wants to go broke before starting a new life together? Our wedding video came out SO beautifully and he was like a ninja at the wedding- not noticed by us or the guests. His communication is phenomenal from start to finish and he is very patient as well. The turnaround is fast and we couldn't be more pleased with the end result. You can tell he is a genuine person and loves what he does...it is clear in his work. I highly recommend Seattle Wedding Videography! AMAZING!!"
- Nora & Chris, Downey CA
"Ryan from Seattle Wedding Videography was a wonderful videographer and a pleasure to work with. We decided just a few weeks before our wedding that we wanted to invest in a videographer and we are so glad that we did. Ryan was quick and responsive and provided just what we needed. He captured all of the moments that flew by and were a whirlwind on the big day. We were so happy to sit down with the video and see all the important moments, and see things we missed in all the fun. He was professional, responsive, caring, and a joy to work with."
- Amanda & Paul, Sackets Harbor NY
"Ryan is doing an excellent job! We pleased with his work at our wedding. He is very good communication with us through email and professional in his work. I would recommend anyone to hire him in weddings."
- Toby & Yang, Seattle WA
"Ryan at Seattle Wedding Videography was top notch! I decided to get a videographer as a last minute decision. I didn't have it in the budget but a friend insisted I wouldn't regret it. As I'm sure many people have told you or will tell you, the day of your wedding is a blur! I'm still not sure who was all there at ours! However, having this video allows my husband and I to replay this magical moment over and over! Ryan was outstanding at capturing exactly who we are. His speediness and response is top-notch! In fact I'm sure I've become one of his frustrating customers since I was the one not responding to him fast enough! :) He got our unedited version to us within DAYS of the wedding. I couldn't believe it! He has been all over it from beginning to end and I would highly recommend him and his company!"
- Tanya & Kalani, Kent WA
"Ryan with Seattle Wedding Videography did an amazing job capturing all of our guests on camera and editing it together for a final video we love. They are well worth the money and very professional. We were so impressed by how organized they were and how much attention they gave us throughout the planning, filming, and editing. They went well beyond our expectations."
- Matt & Anastasia, Renton WA
"Ryan Graves was the videographer for my wedding in September 2013. He did a great job! My husband and I are really happy with the work he did. My husband especially didn't think we needed a video of the wedding but now we are both so happy we have this. You just don't realize how much you are going to want to remember every detail once it is over because everything happens so fast that day. Definitely recommend you hire a professional videographer, and especially Seattle Wedding Videography. Ryan even met with us ahead of time and we were very comfortable with an understanding of what we were paying for and the work he would do. Then during the even he was great, stayed out of the way and we hardly noticed there was a person with a camera following us around. Definitely work the money and would recommend to everyone. Thanks!"
- Lili & Matt, Renton WA
"Ryan and Sarah were fantastic in the entire process of filming and editing our wedding video. While shopping around for videographers, I had a specific budget in mind. After Ryan worked with me and was able to stay within my budget, I was sold. After the first meeting with Ryan, I knew I had chosen wisely. He is wonderful and very passionate about his work and company. He has a great sense of humor and is extremely down to earth. He understands that getting married is often a very hectic and stressful time especially since he recently was married. You will leave the initial meeting feeling calm and reassured. Sarah was exceptional and captured all of the key moments during the ceremony and the reception. Our reception was running a little behind schedule and Sarah offered to stay and continue filming even though it was beyond the scheduled end time. After my husband and I planned our wedding in just 4 short months, we needed to some time to recoup. Ryan was extremely patient during this time and was extremely attentive once we got the ball rolling again. I would highly recommend Seattle Wedding Videography!!"
- Jennifer & David, Seattle WA
"Seattle Wedding Videography was a great company to work with. They were very professional and quick with any questions I had. They completed our wedding video is record time (so it felt) and I loved the first cut of the video! I didn't even ask for many edits on the first cut of the video! Their prices are also very reasonable and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to capture their special day into a video you can watch for years to come!"
- Alicia, Seattle WA
"I wasn't sure about hiring a videographer for my wedding...but I'm so glad I did! Ryan was phenomenal from start to finish! Highlights included prompt responses, extremely fast turnaround on the projects, very easy to work with, he allows edits so you can really get exactly what you want, he actually listens, he explains the process very thoroughly, he's funny, kind and genuinely cares about documenting your wedding day. We had a small budget to work with, and he treated us no differently than clients that paid twice what we did. Our video is amazing. He did a great job getting to know us in order to provide us with a perfect product. When I finally sat down and watched the film with my husband - I was blown away at all of the intricacies he caught in camera. We had many guests that didn't even realize he was there - which was a complete bonus. He got some amazing candid material. Ryan - thank you so much for giving us more than we hoped for with our video. You're amazing at what you do!"
- Brandi & Mike, Seattle WA
"Ryan and Ryan from Seattle Wedding Videography are the most honest, creative and friendliest guys in the wedding videography business. They are transparent in their work and involve you in the process. I was fortunate enough to find them after an unfortunate event during my wedding planning… I had originally booked another videography company who decided to take our deposit and run. I was so upset that I decided not to hire a videographer. But friends and family insisted that it will be worth it. I was lucky enough to find a review similar to this one on a wedding blog about Ryan and his team. Ryan worked with us and our injured budget. They were so sweet and wanted to instill trust back into us. Ryan T. filmed our wedding day and Ryan G. does the editing. Did I mention how quickly Ryan responds back to emails? He is so speedy in writing back and answering your questions it felt like he was right there working with you. They make sure that you are involved in the editing so that you have a say in what you want to see and cherish on your wedding day. They are brilliant when it comes to capturing your moments. I almost forgot Ryan T was filming that day - serious ninja skills. Ryan G. communicates with you every step of the way, making sure to get your day perfect! Ryan and Ryan you guys are amazing, creative, professional, good people."
- Spencer & Jorel, Seattle WA
"I cannot say enough good things about Seattle Wedding Videography! My husband and I contacted Ryan just a month prior to our wedding as we initially weren't planning to hire a videographer. I'm so glad we changed our minds! Ryan is a true professional in every sense. He did a wonderful job of sneaking about the room silently filming our friends and families. It was heartwarming to go back and watch the DVD footage of all our loved ones laughing and enjoying themselves. Ryan checked in with us prior to the ceremony and again after cutting the cake. We had originally hired him for four hours but he was such a pleasure to work with, we ended up asking him to stay and film our first dance too! Our final wedding DVD turned out wonderfully and we'll be watching it for years to come."
- Kelsey & Stuart, Seattle WA
"I highly recommend Seattle Wedding Videography. From the beginning, I found them professional, enjoyable, very prompt with email responses and the delivered on their promises. We couldn't be happier with our wedding video. You will not regret your choice to go with Seattle Wedding Videography!! He was like a ninja! It was amazing to see what he captured in our video because I felt like I hardly saw him the whole day. But he didn't miss a thing. :)"
- Emily & James, Shoreline WA
"Ryan paid attention to detail, within every aspect of the video. There was nothing out of place, or awkward. We loved all of the perfectly shot angles during our taking of communion. The music choice that accompanied the video was absolutely perfect, and representative of our ceremony. Everything was amazing, and I hardly even noticed he was there during the actual event. We like to call him the Ninja, because we never saw him. The wedding photographer captured everything from the decorations, to the main event. Most importantly our parents loved him, and thought he was the best of any wedding photographer that hey had ever seen. the wedding video was very romantic, and spiritual. The overall nature of the video is very high end and rich feeling, but he managed to capture a lot of the fun moments as well."
- Gena & Nikos, Everett WA
"Ryan was excellent to say the least! He was very professional and prompt. He is willing to work with you to make sure he fits within your budget. The finished quality was perfect; he captured every important moment and appropriately set the tone of the whole day with music and interviews. He made the whole process painless. I would recommend him to everybody!"
- Jessica, Delray Beach FL
"Ryan did an amazing job! Not only did he do a great job capturing all of the memorable moments, he is also a great guy and a joy to work with. Ryan produced a video that was fun and sentimental. We really enjoyed the candid shots as well as the personal messages recorded by family and friends. We would recommend Ryan to anyone!"
- Joe, Delray Beach, FL
"We were so excited to watch our wedding video for the first time when it came in the mail! Our whole family cried the entire time, it is so amazing to be able to re-watch everything from the 'fly on the wall' view! We loved every part so it's hard to name our favorites... My favorite part about the video is that it includes everything from the ceremony and reception, and even well-wishes from guests at the end (like a virtual guestbook). Ryan Taisey was there the whole time, and Ryan Graves came for part of the time. A lot of other videographers only give you little bits and pieces of everything in your video, whereas Seattle Wedding Videography captures it all. We really never even noticed either Ryan's around on the day of the wedding (in a good way)! They introduced themselves at the beginning and then did their job! I must say, that Ryan Taisey did come up to me at one point after I had been discussing photos I wanted with the photographer and said something along the lines of "It sounds like it is really important to you to get that shot with your photographers, I'll make sure it happens". That little comment meant a lot to me, because the photographers lead the way most the time and tell you what to do and where to pose, but knowing that he had my back and would make sure that shot happened allowed me to not even have to worry about it! Our wedding video included well-wishes from the majority of our guests which made it really neat to watch afterwards. The entire video is candid, except for the parts where the photographers had instructed us to pose in a certain way. The video feels like a natural progression of the day. Overall we loved our wedding video! It is full of love and completely symbolizes what the day was truly like, even the song choices were pulled from the wedding song list! We would recommend Seattle Wedding Videography to any family member of friend :)"
- Kaitlyn & Cody, Lake Stevens WA
"Ryan was a pleasure to work with and he is very talented. He spent time with us throughout the process and worked so hard to make us happy- we would hire him again anytime! Our video is fantastic!"
- Christie & Adrian, Douglasville GA
"Ryan and Ryan are simply amazing! We love our video and we proudly show it to anyone who asks to see it! :-) Communication from beginning to end was exceptional. We never had to wait long for a response. We didn't even have to call them the week before the wedding because they confirmed before we could contact them. It really helped that they were always available to answer questions. They even went out of their way to meet special requests. We truly appreciate their sincerity and their desire to make everything perfect for us. The video that they produced is perfect! They captured everything that we wanted them to capture and more! We highly recommend Seattle Wedding Videography!"
- Chris & Michele, Bothell WA
"My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Seattle Wedding Videography to future brides and grooms! We had a great experience working with them from the start. We met via Skype since we live on the east coast - the whole process up to the wedding was very easy with them! On the day of the wedding (8/23/13) they were on time, were so friendly, and got right to work, and everything went perfectly. My sister even booked them shortly after for her wedding, since she liked them on the spot! We got our four minute highlights video just days after we returned from our honeymoon (brought tears to my eyes), and very soon after we got the first draft of the DVD. We are able to give them edits (we had basically none!) to the 2 hour DVD. They are going to use pictures from our photographer for the DVD cover, and can even do a Blu-Ray copy for us. The video had a highlights video, ceremony, cocktail hour, cake cutting, toasts, dancing, interviews from family and friends, and we gave a message at the end. It turned out so great! I just have to say again, Ryan and Ryan were amazing guys who were great to work with, and you should also use them!"
- Maegan & Tony, Norwalk CT
"Creative video transitions and perfect black and white videography combined with color. The videographer was hidden like a ninja as of not to be detected. They are fantastic at hiding and will always win the "Hide and Seek" game. Truly phantoms of the videography but with great scene captures. The videographers captured all important moments and then some. Ryan is the superman of videography. He is fast with his customer services and responses yet does not sacrifice quality in his workmanship. He's also very gifted artist when it comes to holding a camera to record your finest moments. Van Gogh would buy Ryan Graves or Seattle Wedding Videography's products. Unparalleled videography experience with superb customer service. The quality definitely shows in the imagery and videos of each scene. Highly recommend Seattle Wedding Videography."
- Nawid & Kelly, Newport Beach CA
"The favorite part of our wedding video was when Ryan caught our first look. That was the most emotional moment of the day and for us to have that on camera brings me to a loss for words. Ryan ensured not only that the wedding went well, but that we were doing ok, helping with anything we needed. We are truly blessed to have had him as our videographer and now a friend. Ryan was like a ninja. After watching some of our video we constantly found ourselves saying, "He was there!?" He did wonderful in keeping the flow of the wedding going. He caught Absolutely Everything. If I could rate him a 10 out of 5 I would. Stunning work."
- AJ & Roxy, Mountlake Terrace
"Ryan, I have to tell you how much I loved your video! I've watched it five times in a row; BUT, I keep restarting it at the point where 'their' music begins, which - as you know - is the "first look" portion. It's breathtaking seeing the pure love that Aaron shows in the first moments. With the music, the dubbing in of the vows, and the 'peek around the corner at this intimate moment' feel, you have truly put together a work of art. You perfectly captured the moment - waiting patiently to zoom in at exactly the right time. The way you shot this takes a special gift, Ryan. In fact, it's as if you are somehow so connected that you anticipate beyond what experience has taught you, perhaps even bordering on a psychic connection with the subject(s). It's what sets you apart, Ryan, and I truly believe that you approached this (and all of your clients, surely) as if they were family members whose big day was as important and precious to you as it was to them. I'll never forget the look on Aaron's face, and I feel so fortunate to have a son-in-law who so deeply loves my Roxanna. You were so incredibly fun, respectful and professional to have as part of our celebration. With all of the usual fuss and bother of the festivities, you were not intrusive at all, and blended into the fabric of things seamlessly, yet capturing exactly what they asked for. In closing, I have to say that Roxy definitely hired the best, and I am TRULY grateful."
- Sandi (Roxy's Mom), Seattle WA
"Ryan was amazing at our wedding! From day one Ryan was super helpful with everything and very reasonable. He was very patient with us (especially the wife, LOL). But really, guys - if you're looking for a videographer who is actually gonna look at your wedding and help you as well as make everything look beautiful, then you want to go with Ryan. He doesn't look at you and see dollar signs; he wants to know about you and your story and he will even share his. Our whole wedding party and family absolutely loved him; they said he was super nice and such a gentleman. Thanks again Ryan - you're the best! Can you say best wedding videographer of 2013!!!!!"
- Evelyn & Victor, Auburn WA
"If having a great wedding video is important to you, then look no further. We can't say enough great things about Ryan Graves who was our videographer and video editor from Seattle Wedding Videography. The most important thing is that he's extremely responsive. Often we would send him emails and he would respond within minutes but never more than 24 hours which is a big deal for a couple who likes to plan and know what's going on as quickly as possible. We all lead very busy lives so finding a vendor who gets back to you right away is such a luxury to have. On top of this, his packages are unique for each couple and he's extremely budget friendly which was important since we didn't book our videographer until later on in the planning so we really didn't have too much leftover in the budget for this. But choosing Seattle Wedding Videography to capture our wedding ended up being one of the most important decisions we could have made. Plus, we cannot help to mention that although our wedding was on the day of his actual birthday, he still worked with us and was there for our wedding day. We were able to work it out such that we were still covered with a videographer (the other Ryan) for our reception so we weren't too cruel to keep him there for his entire birthday but it was so good of him to be there for us. He also has an exceptional editing process. He provided us a sample DVD with time codes and he provides you with a very easy worksheet to tell him exactly any changes that you request. He was able to make our changes and we can't wait to receive the final product. Thank you Ryan for capturing our special day. Our memories will always be there for us due to your exceptional work."
- Chris & Ellaine, North Bethesda MD
"Ryan Graves is an amazing wedding videographer! He has such a great love and enthusiasm for what he does that shines through as he works. I don't know anyone who is more excited about weddings except maybe brides! He collects info about your venue and vision of your big day so that he doesn’t have to be bothersome while you’re trying to enjoy your wedding! At our wedding in mid-May, he managed to capture all of our precious memories with a very professional and non-intrusive manner. We hardly noticed he was there (in a good way)! All the smiles, tears, and laughter are well documented and set to the soundtrack of our choice which makes our wedding DVD even more special. He even gave guests the opportunity to film congratulatory wishes and for us to tell the story of our relationship! Ryan is very responsive in answering any questions/concerns, usually responding to email within minutes. His rates and prices are more than reasonable considering the quality of his work. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding videographer! Thank you Ryan!"
- Linda & Marc, Seattle WA
"I am so happy that I chose Seattle Wedding videography for our wedding day! It was hard to find a videographer that would still give us everything we wanted for a decent price. Ryan and his crew are awesome. The service we received was amazing and so is the video as well! I absolutely love everything about it. We will definitely recommend them to everyone we know!”
- Vicki & Arnel, Auburn WA
"So my wife and I got married in Nov. of '12 and for what reason decided to pull out our wedding video to revisit and relive what was one of the most special days of our lives. While we will never truly be able to relive the many great moments we had that day, watching the video did more than just remind us about how great the day was. We were able to laugh and really enjoy all of the fun we and our friends and family had. It's a very powerful how a video can capture special moments and bring them back to life later. It goes without say that it takes a lot of talent and hard work to be able to pull it all together well. Ryan Graves has it, did it, and then some. While we knew from the get go that we wanted to capture our wedding & reception on camera, we had reservations about how disruptive having a videographer might be to the festivities. Ryan was a camera ninja. With everything going on, we didn't notice him there at all. It's incredibly shocking, especially after having just watched the video over and seeing how many shots of us and close ups of us he had all night long. Also, Ryan promised that if we brought a laptop, we'd be able to have all of the many hours of footage on our computer that night. He delivered as promised. Ryan's personable, responsive, organized, and a very talented videographer. Having a videographer is a must at your wedding in my mind. Pictures and memories just don't bring those key moments back to life the way a well done video will. If you're going to do it, I recommend considering Ryan for all of the above reason. You won't be disappointed . . . and for something like this, you don't want to risk being disappointed."
- Minh & Jennifer, Seattle WA
"I am so glad that we decided to get a videographer for our wedding especially since the entire day seemed like it went by so quickly! Ryan was professional and fun to work with. From the instant we contacted him for a quote until everything was completed he responded to each email nearly instantaneously. On the day of our wedding we hardly noticed he was there during the ceremony and reception, yet somehow he managed to capture many unique shots including close ups. He is extremely efficient, he had the DVD in the mail to us within days of the wedding for us to review. He was great about editing some of the things that we preferred to have changed (music, sections we wanted changed, etc.) His videography is amazing, it was great to see so many things from our wedding day that we hadn't seen before! Thanks Ryan!"
- Rachel & Cory, Seattle WA
"I highly recommend Seattle Wedding Videography. They were an absolute pleasure to work with. Ryan is the most responsive vendor I worked with during my wedding planning by far. He is very fast to answer emails and respond to questions or inquiries. Both of their videographers were so friendly and down-to-earth when we met, I knew it would be a pleasure to have them at my wedding. At the wedding, I didn’t even notice that Ryan was there. The filming was so unobtrusive. We got the video footage back very quickly, which was awesome. After the wedding, I was dying to see images and re-live the day. They didn’t make me wait long! I had the first draft of the video in about a week. They were very receptive to making changes in the final product to make sure we were completely satisfied. I recommend them to all couples looking for a videographer! We've only been married 6 weeks and I've already watched the entire 90-minute video five times. Love it!!"
- Courtney & John, Newcastle WA
"Ryan and his crew totally know how to make the perfect wedding video for whatever you are looking for. First of all, let me explain how quickly he answers his email. If you email him at any time during the day, he will literally email you back within the same minute; I can think of no exception. That alone was worth the price, as you can understand the stress level of planning a wedding. Ryan takes the time to get to know your personality so he knows what tone you want to set. Our wedding video matches our personality perfectly. Also, I want to point out, that in over 600 pictures of our wedding reception and ceremony, he is in none of the photos. He is a ninja. Post wedding, I was sent the Hard Drive I provided for the raw footage before I got back from my honeymoon; it was waiting in my mailbox. I had a preview video for review two weeks after that. If it wasn’t for me being so slow to get back to Ryan, I could have had the final DVD/BluRay in less than one month from the wedding…unbelievably fast. And the speed was no substitution for quality. He captured all the moments! Thank you Ryan and your team!!!!"

"Ryan did such an amazing job with capturing our wedding weekend! We hired him for 2 ceremonies and reception. The prices are just right and the quality is amazing! He is very kind and willing to go above and beyond. He came out personally to meet us before the wedding to go over our prep sheet and just get to know us. He made us feel very comfortable and my family made him a part of ours. During both of our ceremonies you couldn't tell where he was! Pretty invisible to us, which was great! We went about our day without any disruption from cameras and what not. From booking to editing, Ryan kept in touch with us. If we had any questions, they would get answered in minutes. Always up to date on what was going on. Also during the editing process he will add any music you want, and edit the video to your liking. He captured the right moments and we are so happy with the DVDs. We are so thankful for the time and effort he spent making our wedding even more special by letting us relive it for the rest our life. I will definitely recommend Ryan for any wedding or special occasion!"
- Celine & Humphrey, Oceanside CA
"Ryan is absolute dream to work with. He is so responsive to your needs as a couple and truly loves weddings and does great work to capture it all on video. He helped to make our day so special and capture all the memories for a lifetime. Thanks Ryan!"
- Rebecca & Barbarie, Lakewood WA
"Ryan was an amazing videographer. I am so thankful that my husband and I decided to get a videographer! Pictures are of course great, but nothing is as valuable as actually being able to watch your wedding. I know that there were many things I missed, didn't see, or simply just didn't remember. If was so cool watching it and getting to see all of those things. Not only am I glad I had a videographer, I am so happy we went with Ryan! He was so awesome throughout the entire process. I was so thankful that he was able to stay until the very end even though, technically, our time was up. He was never in the way and was very respectful of everyone. Ryan is definitely more than worth the price he charges. He was so great from start to finish. He even got our DVD to us in less than a week which is unbelievable to me. I would very strongly recommend Ryan!"
- Michele & Chris, Kent WA
"Our favorite part of the wedding video was how he set the scene with showing the decor and paying attention to detail. He was able to capture every wonderful detail of our perfect day. He was never intrusive. In fact, my mother in-law didn't even see him the whole day! He captured more wedding moments than I thought was possible! He didn't miss anything! The tone of the wedding video was romantic, smooth and creative.”
- Brittany & Julian, Fairborn OH
"Ryan did an outstanding job with the video of our ceremony and reception! We wanted a videographer, and did not have a photographer, as Ryan said he could get some stills from the video. We had a tight budget and Ryan delivers amazing value and high quality work. Having Ryan there to capture it all was one of the best decisions we made during wedding planning! Ryan did a great job of getting ALL of the important moments (cake cutting, first dance, etc.) as well as lots of great footage of the guests having fun, especially the toasts. He did an superb job editing everything and including our special music as well. Ryan is incredibly friendly and fun to work with, as also was very easy to communicate with via email both before and after the event when editing/making our Wedding DVD. He was by far one of the most value options we found. The only recommendation we could make is to spend the time on the front end to plan exactly what you want from the ceremony, reception and speeches, etc.. We definitely recommend hiring Ryan for your videographer for your special day, and to relish the in magic of it all for years to come! We are SO very glad we did!!!"
- Robert, Seattle WA
"My husband and I both love the DVD and are SO glad that we decided to hire you guys. It has been VERY fun for us to watch it but it has also been very fun to share it with our family & friends. Even my dad watched it twice in 2 days and loved it just as much the second time. It is put together so well and captures so much of the evening that it feels like you're there again. Everyone that we have shared it with has commented that it is a very entertaining video and that they would watch it again. I think that speaks volumes to the service that you guys are providing to people. Not only do my husband & I have a video of our wedding that I will cherish forever, we have something that we can share with our family & friends. I can't imagine NOT having the video. It truly is priceless. You were both wonderful to work with - everyone commented that they didn't even realize that there was a videographer at the wedding. But Ryan managed to capture EVERYTHING that happened throughout the night. Thank you so much Ryan!"
- Kim, Marysville WA
"Ryan was the amazing choice we went with for videography for our wedding and reception. He more than lived up to the great recommendations from multiple friends. We are beyond happy with the results and would highly recommend him to anyone. You miss so much on the busy day that it is so wonderful to see all the details as well as recount the busy day from a different perspective. Ryan truly gave us a work of art that we can enjoy for the rest of our lives. It was also great for all the people who couldn't make it to feel like they were still a part. If you are still thinking about videography, let me tell you it's worth every penny and even more. I only wish all the wedding planning went as smoothly as dealing with the well-organized Ryan. Thank you Ryan and team for allowing us to relive memories."
- Leah & Wes, Sunray TX
"I highly recommend Ryan and his team to anyone looking for a wedding videographer! My husband and I tossed the idea of a videographer around for a while and in the end we hired Ryan to video our wedding. We feel it was one of our best (if not THE BEST) wedding decision we made! His expertise and professionalism is amazing and absolutely top notch. He worked with me before hand to make sure we had everything we wanted (amount of DVD’s, times, etc.) and was extremely responsive and great to work with. The price was fabulous and absolutely competitive. The turn-around time to receive the preview DVD was amazing – we had it in our mailbox when we returned home from our honeymoon. Ryan gave us instructions on how to write down any changes we may want (of course, we had none!) and worked with us to include photographs taken at the wedding. He was also able to incorporate a slideshow my parents had put together of my husband and I growing up which turned out great. It’s so special to have that memorialized on film. The best part about Ryan is that he includes the whole wedding on the DVD. We enjoyed watching the entire preview video and seeing things we had missed the day of the wedding! In years to come we can re-watch it and remember our vows, the toasts, our first dance – because they’re all on film. Our grandparents (who are out of state and could not attend our wedding) will now be able to witness our wedding as if they were there. It will be just as beautiful as if they were – thanks to Ryan. Thank you again Ryan for everything! You are the best!"
- Melissa & Jon, Lake Stevens WA
"Ryan did a wonderful job with the video of our ceremony and reception! I was so glad we decided to have a videographer. We almost didn't because we didn't think it was worth it, but looking back, it was 100% the right decision. There are so many things you don't get to see as the bride, and half of what you do see you don't remember because it's all so exciting and surreal! So having Ryan there to capture it all was one of the best decisions I made during wedding planning! Ryan did a great job of getting ALL of the important moments (cake cutting, first dance, etc.) as well as lots of great footage of the guests having fun, including some interviews. He did an awesome job editing everything and including our special songs as well. He is super friendly and fun to work with, as well as very easy to communicate with via email both before and after the event when editing/making the DVD. Also, he was by far one of the most affordable options we found. The only recommendation we could make is that we wish he had suggested the option of bringing an assistant with him to have an extra camera to get even more footage and more angles/perspectives of the ceremony and speeches, etc. We definitely recommend hiring Ryan for your videographer for your special day, and to relish the in magic of it all for years to come! We are SO glad we did!!!"
- Erica & Garrett, Kirkland WA
"Ryan is awesome! My fiancée and I weren't sure that we wanted a videographer but we are so glad that we decided to hire him – definitely worth adding to the budget! Ryan and his team were personable and professional and did an excellent job (He even came early so that we wouldn't miss any of the before the wedding festivities)! Before the wedding he was constantly in touch and answered every question I had. On the day of the wedding he blended in perfectly but was able to capture every moment of my wedding. After the wedding he was timely and efficient in providing us with a preview and final copy. The video captured all the wonderful and unexpected moments of our wedding better than just photographs can. Ryan also expertly designed and edited the video so we received a professional production that I would be proud to show anyone (not just family!). My husband and I were able to cherish all the parts of our wedding that we don't remember as the day was such a whirl. Ryan and his team did an excellent job and I would recommend him to everyone who wants to be able to preserve and relive their special day."
- Kim & Brannon, Seattle WA
"I am not one to give a 5 star review easily as I tend to expect a great deal for the money I spend, but Ryan came pretty darn close! He was extremely enthusiastic, extraordinarily responsive, and beyond professional. My bride and I budgeted a large sum for our wedding (minimum 2 brand new cars) and even in the midst of the extravagance Ryan found a way to make us feel even more special on our special day. From the day we met with him and shared our story of love (and heard his enthusiastic story of love for his own fiancé at the time), to the moment he chased our Rolls Royce through downtown Seattle with his video camera out his window to catch every kiss and loving caress he was dedicated and professional. He put together a wonderful video with extraordinary footage, and consulted us the entire way to assure it would be exactly what we were looking for. He was funny and enchanting, always allowing the experience of the day to flow organically. The only reason he does not get an all five star rating is that the video missed the entrance of the best man and maid of honor initially entering the chapel (not exactly his fault given the strict rules he agreed to abide by in order to take video in St. James Cathedral, the Arch Diocese of Seattle...not to mention a bit of a, lets just say, stickler when it comes to photos and videography on the premises). If I ever get married again (say for a 20th anniversary with my lovely bride) I would be more than honored to have Ryan take video at my ceremony again."
- Elijah & Josephine, La Jolla CA
"Hiring Ryan to video our wedding was the best investment that we made! Our wedding day flew by and neither one of us remember all of the things that happened on our wedding day - having Ryan there to capture all of those special moments was a great choice! I especially liked having all of the family in the video and can't wait to look back at this in the years to come :) One last thing that is very wonderful about Ryan is his timeliness! He is very fast at getting the video done :)."
- Kristi & Ed, Arlington WA
"Ryan did a great job on our wedding video capturing the key moments. Our wedding went by so fast that we didn't really get to see how it all turned out from the guest perspective. We love how he recorded the whole ceremony and also how he made the testimonials at the end. He did an excellent job and would recommend him to other couples."
- Jemilin & Tom, Kirkland WA
"Ryan did an amazing job here. We were initially going to skip out on the video to save $$ but in the end I think we treasure this video more than any other keepsake from the wedding experience. He was there the whole day and captured every minute of the action. There was a great intro he put together and from there we get to relive the whole evening. There was a also a great closing that showed some real creativity in the moment. The editing process was easy and he gave us a lot of control over the music, visuals, and style. I was really impressed that Ryan went the extra mile to make it perfect. I highly recommend working with Ryan if you get the chance!"
- Matt & Summer, Seattle WA
"Hiring Ryan to capture every moment of our day was by far the best decision we made. I think best part for me, as the bride, was being able to see the look on my groom’s face as her prepared to see me for the first time. Without our wedding video, I never would have been able to really feel the emotion, and I definitely would have never known he got teary eyed! Being able to see every moment come together, and hear our music played during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, those are just moments that photography cannot capture. Seeing our family and friends on the dance floor at the end of the night, and hearing the songs played, is something I will hold in my heart forever. I did a lot of research when looking for a videographer, and ended up going with a referral from a friend who also used Ryan. When I met with him, I instantly knew he was the one I wanted on our wedding day. Ryan’s pricing is so reasonable, and his turnaround time is amazing. We had our DVD in the mail when we returned from our honeymoon, which was an awesome thing to come home to! Every email I have ever written to him, it felt as though I had an instant reply. The day of our wedding, he showed up with a smile, and was so warm and bubbly; it made it easy to have him around. Most the time, I didn’t even know he was there, very professional and let us have our time, all while capturing every special moment. It would have been one of my biggest regrets if I had not done the video. Thank you so much Ryan for your help in creating a memory that really will last a lifetime!"
- Cambria & Robert, Kirkland WA
"Seattle Wedding Videography is the greatest!!! Ryan was our videographer for our August 4, 2012 wedding and we were really happy with the service he provided!!! He is very nice, not too intrusive and the video cover he put together is fabulous!!! It really was a pleasure having Ryan videotape this special day for us so we can share this memory with our future children and family that couldn't attend...... another plus, not only was he very personable and good at what he does, his pricing was also very competitive. Thank you Ryan!!!!"
- Tammy & Jonathan, Sammamish WA
"RYAN IS AWESOME! From the beginning, he was personable and responded very quickly to emails. Was kind and professional and actually CARED about me and what I wanted. I don’t regret one penny I spent on having him capture my big day. You couldn’t even tell he was there.. yet him and his team were able to make a BEAUTIFUL video for my husband and I to look back on and remember for the rest of our lives. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else there to do it.. he is amazing and you are missing out big time if you don’t go through him... he knows his stuff, ladies! Thank you so much, Seattle Wedding Videography!!!!! I will be voting for you and throwing your name out there every chance I get!!! You deserve it!”
- Ashley & Austin, Silverdale WA
"Ryan is wonderful to work with! We hired him as our videographer for our wedding day (for both the ceremony and reception) as we had heard around that he did wonderful work at an affordable price. When I first contacted him to go over what we had in mind in terms of coverage, he sent me a bid within just a half hour. Once we agreed to move forward, Ryan was always available to answer any questions I had quickly enough to make it easy on my end. On the actual wedding day, Ryan was a lot of fun to be around. He was super friendly and kept me and the bridal party energized before the actual ceremony and made sure to capture those fun moments. Throughout the day he was always ready to go and filmed every special event of the night and captured everything we would have imagined… and more! My husband and I took off for our honeymoon the day after our wedding and came back 10 days later to already find a review DVD from Ryan sitting in our mailbox. It was perfect timing for us as we watched it our first night back and got to enjoy this special viewing time together. We were very impressed with the quality, turnaround time, the moments caught on film, and fun things that Ryan added to our DVD. I will say that my husband was a bit hesitant to hire a videographer for our wedding.. but after working with Ryan we decided it was one of the best choices we made and this is one DVD we will be cherishing forever! Amazing work! Thank you Ryan!"
- Cassie & Matt, Seattle WA
"Ryan shot our wedding in August in Seattle. We were on a budget, and his prices were extremely competitive - it was an easy choice. He manned a camera, and had another one set up to capture another angle. He captured all the moments that we wanted, and even some moments that we missed on the actual day. We had the review DVD ridiculously fast. Ryan is very responsive to email (within 24 hours), and was very easy to work with on any edit/changes I wanted. You can count on always knowing the status of your project, and it's quite evident that Ryan really loves his work - which translates to the final product. Highly recommended!"
- Ben, Seattle WA
"Ryan did an amazing job filming our wedding! We originally were not going to have a videographer, but I am so glad we decided to hire Seattle Wedding Videography. He captured all of the special moments during the day. He also set up an area where our guests could leave us personalized messages. He always responds quickly when contacted and his prices are reasonable for the amazing service he offers! I guarantee you will not be disappointed!"
- Robyn & Armando, Everett WA
"My now husband said we didn't need a video of our wedding but I was adamant that we did. After a lot of research and reading reviews, I chose Seattle Wedding Videography. SO glad I did!!! His turnaround responding to my initial request for a quote was less than 24 hours, and every response after that was just as quick. He answered all my questions, gave advice and suggestions on whether to use one or two videographers (went with one), about whether we needed to use microphones during our outdoor ceremony, etc. At the wedding and reception, you knew he was "around" but he wasn't obnoxiously around. At the end of the day, he took us aside and did a little interview with us, about how we met, what we initially liked about each other, future plans, etc. He put us both so at ease you forgot he was sitting in front of you with a big camera. As far as edits on our video, there were really only a few things I wanted changed (he sends you a review video to look at) and he did those quickly once I got the worksheet to him. I wish I had had Ryan be there for the "First Look" moment. My husband started to cry and I would have loved to have had that on film!!! The price is great, the service is great, I love our video. If I ever need a videographer again, Ryan is my Go To guy! TOTALLY, TOTALLY, TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! Ryan is so easy to work with, his prices are incredible and the finished product is great! His response turnaround to e-mails is less than 24 hours; he was the only vendor for our July 21, 2012, wedding that always got right back to me. When you have a wedding videographer, you don't want to see them obviously "lurking" around. You barely know Ryan is there. All our guests thought he was great. He went around to our guest tables to record well wishes. Some of them are pretty funny. At the end of our day, he took us aside and interviewed us for the end of our video. He put us so at ease, we forgot he was sitting in front of us with a big camera. If you need a videographer for your wedding, or any event, Ryan is your only choice!!"
- Tami & Mark, Kent WA
"Ryan was a joy to work with! Very easy going, friendly, and quite professional. They catered to us and without us even telling them what to do, they knew EXACTLY what to do and exceeded our expectations! We simply wanted someone to film our day and not miss a single part of it, and they did that and more. Not only was their work outstanding but they for sure know how to get it done quick! They were patient and understanding in terms of communication and were definitely fun to have around for our special day! They made our wedding day THAT much more memorable thanks to their awesome work. We now get to look back when we watch our video and are reminded of the awesome memories shared on our special day."
- Anton & Marie, Sugar Land TX
"Working with Ryan was absolutely fantastic. He really was cognizant of our budget and really tried to get us the best deals possible. A great combination of professional, personable--all around good person. The video looks amazing & are so happy with how he captured our Special Day! We will be able to relive the memory for years to come. Thanks Ryan, you're the best!"
- Michaela & Jeff, Seattle WA
"We weren't sure originally whether we wanted to have a videographer, but Seattle Wedding Videography was a great choice. He was nice and easy to work with, both in preparation and at the wedding. He was helpful during the wedding, helping us out on a few occasions. We've watched the DVD and it's a great video of our wedding."
- Kevin & Noriko, Redmond WA
"Ryan was great to work with. He was very personable and always extremely quick with his turnaround. We had two different religious ceremonies in our wedding, and he covered both really well. He sent us a Review DVD with a spreadsheet that allowed us to specify changes that we wanted in the video. He incorporated our changes really well including requests to use specific music tracks for the background music in a different language. He also incorporated a beautiful slide show at the end of the video per our request. All in all, he did an excellent job preserving memories from our special day."
- Shalini & Sudhanshu, Seatac WA
"My husband and I were not planning to hire a videographer but since part of his family could not make it to the wedding, we figured it would be the perfect way to share the day with them. I am so glad we found Ryan and now we will be able to treasure the day forever. If you are wavering on whether to hire a videographer, stop and plan a meeting with Ryan. You won't regret it! Ryan was amazing to work with. He has such a fun and open personality that makes you enjoy every moment that you are around him. It is so refreshing to work with someone who really has a passion for his work and he will ensure you love your wedding DVD. Ryan was always responsive to communication and works hard to make sure you have a final product that you will treasure forever, for a reasonable price. Ryan captured every possible moment of the day that we could have asked for. Amazing job! I highly recommend."
- Erin & Nate, Brier WA
"Ryan is an awesome videographer!! I wasn't sure if I was going to use a videographer and I am so happy that I did. Ryan was very prompt on getting back to me and the rates were perfect. So I hired him. The day of the wedding they filmed the ceremony and reception. They were very friendly, and I love that they got a lot of the guests to do interviews. They move swiftly around so they are never in the way or you don't really know that they are there. They captured the whole ceremony and all the reception events. I got my sample DVD a few days after my week honeymoon. We watched it and didn't need to change a thing. It was perfect. The music they used how they did different speeds in the DVD. I would recommend Seattle Wedding Videography to anyone and recommend getting a videographer if you are in limbo. You really don't remember the day."
- Shayla & Michael, Olympia WA
"We were very happy with our video! I thought I would write this review for Latin brides too. Hispanic weddings are an all day even. Hiring a videographer for that amount of time can be real expensive. I think Ryan's price was fair. He was there all day. Our ceremony was at 11am and our reception from 2:30 to midnight. Of course he didn't stay until midnight but pretty much all day. He even showed up earlier so he could capture the special moments. I love that he got my husband's nervousness on camera. Ryan is a great person to work with, he will respond to you within the day. He cares about you as a couple and not just your money. He was very creative and responsible. It really looks like he loves what he does and we would recommend him to everyone! He also will mail you your DVD fast. We love our video!! It was great quality and we LOVED our intro :) Everything we wanted captured was captured."
- Diana & Luis, Kirkland WA
"Ryan was so great to work with!!! We had him video just our ceremony, and he was able to capture every moment with perfect clarity. He is a professional and knew exactly where to set up in order to get the right view. It's so important for this once in a lifetime event to select vendors who are experienced and knowledgeable, and Ryan is exactly that. We definitely recommend Seattle Wedding Videography!!!!"
- Michele & David , Bellevue WA
"Ryan and Seattle Wedding Videography captured the video footage at our wedding at Thornewood Castle. While I have not seen the final product yet, I still will highly recommend them. They are so kind and professional, attentive and customer service-oriented. The day of the wedding, they even downloaded ALL of the video footage to my laptop so that I could see the unedited clips before I get my final DVD. Ryan is so responsive as well. Email is the best way to get him. He responds immediately. I can't wait to see the video that he puts together for us!!"
- Lori & EJ, Bellevue WA
"Ryan is the best !!! We hired him for our Indian and American wedding video shooting. Ryan answered all your questions fast and perfectly. We were so amazed to see how he captured all details (which we forgot to notice that day) for our both weddings and created memories for life!!! Ryan is very professional, friendly, enthusiastic and energetic guy. He definitely exceeded our expectations. Ryan is a joy to work with. He creates an atmosphere of fun and pure joy! He puts his heart and soul into his work. He even helped us move tables and helped with whatever else was required for smooth flow during the ceremony, in addition to providing his awesome video services. Everyone just loved him. We are so glad, we found him J, and above all as we had to drive to another state after wedding, he did put extra effort to transfer all our videos on our hard drive on the same day !!! Very affordable too J, If you are looking for videographer for any occasion, we give Ryan our full recommendation. Don’t think twice…Awesome job…two thumbs up!!!"
- Raman & Andrew, Minnesota
"I enjoyed the whole video. Being able to see our ceremony again and re-live the moment of exchanging our vows, seeing the cocktail hour that we never got the chance to make, signing our licenses, watching the first dances, and capturing the beauty of the space. There are moments captured in our photos that we didn’t understand what we were doing, but then we watch the video and laugh because the expressions or actions are explained. I am especially happy that we took Ryan’s advice to set up a video for our guests to leave us personal well wishes. They were a lovely surprise at the end of our video allowing us to connect with some people that we didn’t get to spend that much time with that day. I don’t know how he avoided disrupting our day, but he did. :O) Of course, after meeting him at our rehearsal he was like a friend and fit right in. It was a joy to have him there. He fit in with my wedding party and worked well with our photographers. I was worried that he would get in the way of their shots but it was the opposite. He managed to capture all our important events and not end up in the photos. He captured all the important wedding moments, including candid's & interviews. There was more included in the video than I knew had occurred. The day is such a whirlwind. You blink and it’s over. I didn’t remember a thing. Being able to look back at the video helped me to remember the beauty of the event and all that I did. The tone of our wedding video fit the theme of my wedding. The intro was retro and theatrical capturing the uniqueness and beauty of the site and the event. The music custom selected from our wedding. I would recommend Seattle Wedding Videography without hesitation. He came through for us at the last minute and delivered a stellar product that brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it."
- Nikita & RJ, Seattle WA
"I loved every minute of the footage! It was awesome to be able to relive our day. Everything from the rehearsal dinner, to the day of set-up, to the wedding ceremony, to the reception. Every moment was captured! He was very respectful of our space, but still was able to capture all the moments. His shots were very thought out and intentional, and we ended up with beautiful wedding footage!"
- Brian & Cassie, Seattle WA
"If you’re looking for a videographer to record your big day, Ryan with Ryan is the one to go to. Ryan is such a fun person to work with. He is dedicated about his work; he even went to the church we got married at on the day of our rehearsal so that he can check out place to best record our ceremony. After the wedding, the turnaround time for the video was done very quickly. We had a few edits we wanted in the DVD and Ryan was quick to revise it to our perfection."
- Ronald & Willin, Seattle WA
"Ryan truly did an amazing job capturing our wedding. Hiring a videographer was kind of an afterthought and we are truly grateful we hired Ryan. We now have lifelong memories of our big day in a professionally produced video. Through the whole process Ryan always responded to emails promptly and was consistently reliable. He had a great turnaround, he actually sent us the sample DVD within days after the wedding which was awesome!! Ryan was a pleasure to work with the day of the wedding. Throughout the whole day he kept an upbeat and positive attitude. He worked well with our DJ and photographer, and was a fun guy to have around. He captured some great angles and the finished product has some very artistic shots. The DVD incorporates some of our favorite songs and all the major events of the wedding. We would definitely recommend Ryan to any couple getting married."
- Kandice & Kevin, Tukwila WA
"Ryan did amazing capturing all of the important moments in the ceremony and the reception as well. He is friendly, kind, and professional. I liked the fact that he was not disturbing. We were not even aware of his presence while he was filming the video. I really liked him when he did my niece's wedding video this summer. I didn't plan to have a video for my wedding, but it was a surprise gift from my family. It made me happy that my family picked Seattle Wedding Videography. I would have picked him if I would've planned having a video."
- Angela & Ivan, Sequim WA
"Ryan and company did a fantastic job filming our wedding and making an amazing wedding DVD for us. He made a wedding video even more beautiful than we could have imagined."
- Phil & Claudia, Seattle WA
"I have nothing but good things to say about Ryan! Working with him was so easy before, during and after the wedding, and he was always on top of things and quick to respond to any questions we had. The value of his services and the finished product exceeded our expectations. He was very professional during the wedding and reception, and captured all of the key moments beautifully. My husband and I were marveling about how we didn't even remember seeing him during the wedding/reception, which I think is a huge plus....he was really able to get everything on camera without being intrusive in any way. His editing was superb...we didn't have a single change to request for the final DVD! Plus, the "cover" art that he put together using pictures from our photographer is really, really well done. We highly recommend him!"
- Annie & Josh, Redmond WA
"There are so many amazing moments I either didn't know happened, or forgot about due to the commotion of the big day and I am so incredibly happy we had Ryan to film all those special moments. They were incredibly professional, fun, and speedy. The edited video was perfect. You can really see the passion they have for their profession during the entire process and in the finished product. They were a joy to work with and I would recommend them to anyone!"
- Courtney & Chris, Seattle WA
"After searching online for local videographers, my fiancé (now husband :D) and I came across their website. What first caught my attention was the price. I had gotten quotes from other companies but because of a 2 hour travel time the quotes were not in our budget. We scheduled a meeting with Ryan and got a great first impression of him and a reasonable quote. He is a really nice guy and a great people person. It was so easy to talk to him about the important memories we wanted him to film. On the day of the wedding, both Ryan's were great. They were very professional and did a really good job of getting good footage without getting in the way. It was so great to look at our wedding video. Many times he recorded us just having a great time, and we had no idea he was even filming us! Ryan did a fantastic job."
- Sandra & Cory, Bothell WA
"Everything was great...Ryan was a great videographer...we are so happy we hired him. He knows when to take the best shot, he worked great with everyone. He filmed everything we want plus he interviewed some of the guests; it was great. Very creative and great work and a very nice guy to work with!"
- Gedion, Shoreline WA
"Ryan was great to work with! He was very approachable and friendly, but still professional. He was contracted for only the raw footage of the ceremony, but also captured our first look and interviews which was a lovely surprise. After watching the footage I was very happy that my husband and I were on our best behavior because I do not remember Ryan being present during many of the moments."

"I think my favorite part of the video Ryan created for us was getting to watch all the dancing and seeing my friends and family bust their moves! Everyone looks so happy and it's great to get to just re-live it all and take it all in. I barely even knew Ryan was there! It was amazing how unobtrusive he was. It was wonderful how he weaved through the crowds and caught fun and intimate moments- all without being in your face. Ryan even offered some comfort to us during a stressful moment and helped smooth out our anxiety. Ryan managed to capture interviews, he had us tell our story, and he caught every "moment" from the ceremony, toasts, cake cutting, and dancing on tape! The wedding video is fabulous. It's fun, intimate, heart-warming, and creative. It captures the best moments of our special day in a way that puts us right back in it. Thank you Ryan!"
- Meghan & Chris, Seattle WA
"I hired Ryan to be the videographer at my daughter’s wedding. In all honesty, having the wedding videotaped was not a high priority for me or my family, but Ryan shared his belief with me that videography captures the living experience of a wedding in a complimentary, but completely different way from photography. I already knew that Ryan was a skilled professional who has a gift for working well with people. I trusted Ryan’s judgment on this wedding videography issue, and his price was so reasonable that I couldn’t say no. My 90 year old father was unable to attend the wedding, and I was happy that a wedding DVD would be available to share with him and other absent relatives at a later date. What I could not possibly have know when I hired Seattle Wedding Videography is that my husband and I would miss three very important wedding moments due to a logistical error on the part of the wedding planner. We never saw the wedding cake before it was cut up, we missed the words of gratitude our daughter and her new husband spoke to their parents and guests, and we missed the bride and groom’s first dance. This was heartbreaking. May this never happen to anyone else!!! Our dismay and grief at not seeing these events in person have softened and been transformed by Seattle Wedding Videography’s beautiful wedding videography which is breathtakingly life like. Ryan exquisitely captured these moments and so many other ones of depth, of joy, and of fun. And his cheerful spirit of connection and goodwill made his presence a gift to all. I can’t say enough positive things about Ryan Graves. He and his work are wonderful!!!"
- Krista (Meghan's Mom), Seattle WA
"Ryan is one of the kindest and most on top of it vendors I met through the process of planning my wedding. I was having a hard time finding an affordable wedding videographer that didn't charge and arm and a leg. It seemed to m's that everyone of the other vendors either cost way to much or didn't offer enough for the price. Ryan and Seattle Wedding Videography are super affordable and worth the price. He goes above and beyond to give you a special experience. You will not regret working with him!"
- Molly & Brian, Issaquah WA
"When planning my wedding, I was nervous when I had to hire vendors I wasn't personally acquainted with. Thankfully, we lucked out with Ryan. Whenever I contacted him about prices or anything else, he usually got back to me within minutes. Throughout my first contact with him, to my last he was the utmost in professionalism and courtesy. Ryan showed up to my wedding when he promised to, shot all the important footage of my wedding and reception, and did it all with a smile and a positive attitude. I appreciate so much that Ryan took the time to film well-wishes from family and friends. He was creative enough to find an out-of-the-way spot to film while not interrupting the rest of the reception. In addition, I appreciated that Ryan gently asked (but encouraged) people in a professional way to add to the well-wishes. He had a great way of being professional, but very friendly as well. I was amazed at how Ryan was able to get all the wedding and reception video, and I barely noticed he was there! He had a great way of getting the footage without getting in the way. Ryan captured all the most important moments of our special day and did it with a smile and a very positive attitude. Our overall experience with Ryan was superb. We would recommend him to friends and family in a heartbeat."
- Kimberley, University Place WA
"I am a very picky person and a perfectionist, and I was the bride, bad combo. I was very happy with the video, and when I did want things changed or music taken out, Ryan was more than willing to do it and he responded back almost instantly I felt. I love my video so much and he captured perfect moments of the day. My husband and I are more than satisfied. Being the bride and groom the day is just go go go go, you don't really get time to look around and soak up the happiness and the love of the day, so I'm so glad we got a videographer and that it was Ryan. The happiness on our faces that he captured and the music he played in the background was perfect. Also, we did not even realize he was there. My husband didn't even know we had a video photographer until he came up and said goodbye so if you are worried about someone being all in your business, go with Ryan. Very professional and we are very happy with our video."
- Mallorie & Alex, Chehalis WA
"Ryan was great...very professional. This was our third child to get married in a little over 3 years and all in different locations so Ryan had an uphill battle since we knew what we wanted and expected from the other two. As I am sure most out there know this is the BIGGEST part of the wedding as the day of the wedding can be hectic and hard to take in everything. It is the videographer who has to capture and obtain all the events so that after the fact you can sit back and relive and remember everything that seemed to happen so fast. Ryan did an excellent job and was great to work with. I would not hesitate to use Ryan. They were the best and totally AWESOME."
- Margie (Mallorie's Mom), Chehalis WA
"Ryan was AWESOME to work with!! We met Ryan at our best friend's wedding a few months before we were engaged and got his card to hold on to. We connected with him immediately at their wedding and were excited by his infectiously fun and outgoing personality! We finally were engaged ourselves, Ryan had touched base with us a few times to see if it had happened. It was nice to know he wanted to be a part of our wedding as much as we wanted him! Ryan attended our rehearsal to scope the space and meet everyone. On the big day - he showed up a few hours before to get video of the prepping...and stayed through our grand exit as the getaway car pulled away. Ryan always has a smile on his face and an incredibly positive attitude. The turn around was very fast - we received our review DVD within a few days of returning from our honeymoon. I had no idea what to expect as I've never seen anyone's Wedding video before - but it was about 2 hours of wonderfulness!! It even included a nice section of my husband rapping into the camera and me joining half way through as a backup dance. Ryan did some special editing to that section and it ended up being like our own little music video!! Another nice thing he included was putting us in a room privately to tell our story to the camera - it was a very nice addition to the video. Ryan is very affordable, and I can't say enough how FUN he is to work with!"
- Marin & Michael, Kirkland WA
"About a month before the wedding we decided to hire a Videographer. After checking the website we found Ryan with Ryan and contract him by email. He responded immediately to our email and we had the information that we needed regarding cost, time and procedures. He met us on our rehearsal night and went over the proper information that we needed. He was very professional and very helpful. We would highly recommend Ryan and Ryan. Great Job Ryan!!!"
- Nicole & Chad, Seattle WA
"I couldn't have imagined how thankful I would be to have video footage of our day. Ryan was able to capture every detail, was so much fun to work with, and had really creative ideas which made for some both hilarious and romantic footage that we will have forever and ever. We were so pleased with how reliable he was, and how well he wrangled our group together for fun shots. Thanks Ryan!"
- Morgan & Matthew, Seattle WA
"As I know next to nothing about videography, looking for a wedding videographer was a daunting task. Finding Ryan was a huge blessing. He made the entire process pain-free. I selected him as our wedding videographer after meeting with him at a local coffee shop. At our first meeting he was friendly, engaging, and very knowledgeable. I came prepared with my list of standard questions, and he patiently and enthusiastically answered each one. Ryan’s performance at the wedding was five-star. He came on time, was dressed professionally, was friendly with the wedding party, and quickly made people at ease on film. Ryan is energetic, fun to be around, and very professional. These qualities made for a wedding video that captures people laughing, being themselves, and enjoying the event."
- Leslie & Brett, Bellevue WA
"FANTASTIC. I appreciated Ryan's professionalism, responsiveness and dedication. My video turned out great. Ryan was wonderful to work with. Everyone at my wedding loved my vendors, including Ryan, he captured everything I wanted and did it without being in the way. My sisters both had videographers and neither of them liked the product they received. I LOVE MINE!!!! I would recommend Ryan for any wedding!!!!"
- Megan, Bellevue WA
"Ryan is THE VIDEOGRAPHER to have for your wedding! He truly makes the day so much fun and he captures all of the special moments! If you have questions about his plan for the wedding, he is very quick at getting back to you and makes sure that the final product is exactly what you want. I highly recommend Ryan for your wedding! He takes so much stress off the day with just his personality alone but when you add in his video talents, it makes the day even greater. And to top it off, he will mail you the greatest day ever on a DVD! Thank you Ryan so much for all your hard work at our wedding! You truly are a blessing!"
- Sarah & Mason, Kirkland WA
"Picking a videographer was one of the more difficult parts of planning, but we hit a home run when we found Ryan to film our big day. His professionalism and attention to detail was top notch and his knowledge was so very helpful. We couldn't have been more happy with the work that was provide to us and at such a reasonable cost. Picking Ryan was the best decision we made for that day, his exceptional work helps us live that day over and over and smile every time."
- Jeff & Carly, Redmond WA
"I was SO impressed with the work of Ryan. He was so professional, and the most responsive vendor we had for our wedding. The video footage was more than perfect, and exactly what we were looking for at a WONDERFUL price you couldn't beat, especially since he shoots fully HD. We didn't book a videographer until the 12th hour, and we are so happy that we found Ryan. Thank you Ryan for so many wonderful memories we can watch for years to come."
- Heather & Ross, Puyallup WA
"We HIGHLY recommend Ryan from Ryan as your wedding videographer. He was extremely easy to work with and has the best customer service skills. It was wonderful to get an immediate response from him. He really listens to what you want and provides good insight. We received our first DVD review so fast! It was nice to watch the review and see the day from a different perspective. We got to enjoy it all over again. We smiled and laughed the whole time watching the DVD. He offers a great service at the right price and we couldn’t have asked for anything better."
- Jackie & Chris, Olalla WA
"We simply could not be happier with our wedding video! Ryan's professionalism and attention to detail were amazing. He captured the atmosphere of our wedding at Willows Lodge perfectly! Ryan was by far the promptest wedding vendor I dealt with. He took the time to come to our rehearsal to get the lay of the land and meet us...this extra step really made a difference. Ryan blended in seamlessly at the wedding as well. Until about two months before our wedding, we were not planning on hiring a videographer. That would have been a huge mistake, especially after seeing the unforgettable video Ryan produced for us. Now our memories truly will last a lifetime! I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a truly professional, talented and reasonably-priced videographer!"
- Jessica & Zachary, Seattle WA
"We booked Ryan to capture raw footage in HD of our big day through his online booking. He was the most affordable videographer I could find and was recommended by a coworker. However, my experience was the complete opposite of that review. Ryan was very prompt and professional in all his communication. His booking and prep sheet were easy to complete. We didn’t meet in person until the rehearsal; which made me a little nervous. However, once we met Ryan we knew we were in good hands. He is so genuine, friendly and wears his heart on his sleeve it seems. He was a surprise standout vendor for sure. He captured all of the moments we wanted, got well wishes on camera from some of our shyest guests, and all around was a pleasure to work with. He had our raw footage transferred, cataloged, and ready for us to pickup the Monday after the wedding! Very speedy. We couldn’t afford to have him edit something together for us just yet. However, we enjoyed working with him so much that we will probably have him do some editing of the footage in the future. Highly recommended!"
- Gina & David, Seattle WA
"My wife (I love saying that!) and I hired Ryan to capture our wedding day, and we couldn't be happier. He blew us away with his attention to detail on all of the shots he got for us. For instance, he found a time to get a stellar panoramic of the pre-ceremony decor + all of the cool little random stuff that we set up for our crazy night. Also, he got all of my shy friends to give FANTASTIC testimonials on camera (mind = blown). I guess the best compliment I can give is by saying he went well out of his way to get everything right for Gina and I. By this, I mean he worked with the DOC, Photog, DJ, (and maybe a little The Bride) to hash things out and make the fun recordable. Props to you Sir. We absolutely enjoyed your services. P.S. We didn't get editing services with Ryan (we might eventually...he holds your files for awhile.) but he was nice enough to show us some of our videos in his studio and go over what we might need to do for transitions and sound... I'm a computer junkie so I like to learn about muting out low-ends to boost the high-end in software! PPS I forgot to mention the quality of the picture: A+"
- David (Gina's Husband), Seattle WA
"I cannot recommend Ryan highly enough! He was the most reasonably priced videographer we interviewed for our January '11 wedding and he was more professional than most. He is dedicated to making the best possible video, just the way you want it and his level of service and follow through are truly impressive. He far exceeded our expectations in every way, was open to the small changes I asked for and the video turned out perfectly. Our wedding video was ready to review when we returned from our honeymoon and the final copy was to us just days after I approved it. We even ordered more copies to give as gifts to the wedding party after we saw how great it was. Ryan’s enthusiasm is infectious and it was really nice to have such a positive, client focused attitude from him before, during and after our wedding. Ryan also converted a treasured video for me from VCR to DVD and turned it around in just a few days. Choosing Ryan was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning!"
- Susan & Kurt, Kirkland WA
"We searched far and wide to find a videographer for our wedding in January 2011. We interviewed it seemed like countless potential vendors! We could tell right away that Ryan was very professional yet personable. We were very happy with his preparation for our wedding day and when that day came, he did an exceptional job capturing our special day! When we watched the video production Ryan put together, we were very happy with his creative touches. We recommend Ryan very highly!"
- George & Elizabeth, Woodinville WA
"My husband and I decided that we wanted a videographer as one of the very last things before the wedding (about 2 months before). Ryan was an excellent choice for our budget. I decided that I wanted to edit the wedding video myself, so hired him just to film the ceremony and reception. The cost was well below that of comparable services. Leading up to the wedding, he was the most responsive vendor we had. When the big day arrived, Ryan skillfully managed to capture every little detail without being a distraction to the party. The only complaint we would have was that sometimes he would get in the way of the photographer, but I feel this may have been our fault for not telling him that the photographer had priority (and some brides feel the opposite). He was able to transfer the footage onto the hard drive that we gave to him right away - I believe a few days after, but we were on honeymoon so the quick turn-around didn't matter to us. When we finally got around to watching it, I was blown away by the footage! I expected high quality video from his equipment, and for the filming style to be good, but I had no idea that at the price point we paid we would get brilliantly artistic shots, angles, and panning that rival competition at much higher prices (and trust me, I had wanted so badly to splurge a couple grand to get a highly professional team of videographers). I was amazed that he was able to capture every little detail of our wedding that even our photographer had omitted (brides: think favors, decoration, etc). It made me very pleased that even though we weren't paying him to edit the video, he did not disappoint with his artistic filming ways, giving me more than enough to work with in creating my own video. I highly recommend Ryan - he really exceeded our expectations and I guarantee you none of my friends would know the difference between his filming style and that of the videographers who charge the big bucks."
- Rachel & Arthur, Seattle WA
"Everything is outstanding. More than we expected. It is really talented work. I am quite a hard critic, so I searched all reviews on the web and I picked Ryan. I was not sure his reviews were true or not, but I picked him. I would give Ryan 120 points! We are so pleased with his work. He works hard, very talented, and very professional. You will see why I'd give him "120 points" if you had him, just I have trusted other reviewers. Tell the truth, I don't know how he did it, but he did very well. Just talented or skilled? Even at the ceremony, there were two videographers to take different angles of video. Ryan captured every important moment. Nothing missed, and every important parts were well captured! The ring bearer's mother was absent from the wedding due to her second pregnancy. She was SO happy to see first son's great job as a ring bearer without her. We are so pleased with all of Ryan's work! The wedding video's tone was just beautiful! We had our wedding at the aquarium, and even fish turn out more beautiful on video than in real life. No negative word to say. We were very pleased and all my friends who have seen it were very pleased as well. I highly recommend him!!"
- Yoko & Graham, Seattle WA
"Ryan did a great job, and after surveying the church, found he needed a second person. I appreciated that he stuck to his quote, even with the change in personnel. No real disruptions - present and hovering when appropriate, backed off when that was logical. He did a good job of capturing thoughts, comments, & blessings from guests."
- Andy, Redmond WA
"Ryan was literally a gift to my husband and me for our wedding day and we are so glad he was! I barely even noticed he was around and he captured little details that I totally missed! Thank you Ryan for the quality and professionalism you brought to our wedding day video! You blessed us immensely! We highly recommend Ryan to any bride and groom to be!"
- Misty & Joseph, Wilsonville OR
"We really enjoyed the reception. The dancing was the best. Since we were so caught up in the moment we did not even notice our surroundings. Those added elements to the video were a great touch. Our slide show was also incorporated into the video. Most of the time we did not even notice him. He captured so many events of the evening with our guests which made for a great surprise on the video. He was always very polite and patient with us when wanting to capture footage. Ryan was very professional and easy to get along with. He worked extremely well with our other vendors. We filled out a prep sheet before hand which was very helpful. He also was able to attend the rehearsal. Everything was captured and then some. Family members and the bridal party were interviewed. We even added our own story of how we met and got engaged to the video. The wedding video was fun. The music used was appropriately paired with the moments on video."
- Carina & Rick, Bellevue WA
"Ryan did our wedding video and also shot video for me during my musical adventures in NYC. Both products ended up being FANTASTIC and exactly what we wanted!! He is one of the easiest guys to work with and really knows how to draw peoples' personality out and create an atmosphere of energy and pure joy! My wife and I could not have asked for a better man and artist to work with us in all of this. Ryan you have taken a jumble of moments, and helped paint for us a picture of memories that we will have for the rest of our lives!!! Thank you so much for sharing it with us and pouring so much of your heart into every scene!!!We will always refer people to Ryan because, to be frank, its the best!!!"
- Zach & Sarah, Federal Way WA
"Being the Mother of the groom I can't begin to tell you how great it was to have Ryan do our son's wedding. It is one of the biggest days a mother waits for. Now with Ryan's expertise I can relive that day over and over again. He became apart of our family that day. Catching all our special moments! Making our guests feel comfortable and making them feel special too! Ryan also traveled to New York with my son to document his recording of his mp3. Again, I, not being able to be there with him to watch and live the excitement of the recording, Ryan caught everything on video and it was just like being there! Thank you Ryan for all you have done! You have made a mother proud. You can be sure that we will use you at my daughters wedding next June!"
- Diane (Zach's Mom), Snohomish WA
"I would like to highly recommend Ryan for videography! He did such an amazing job. He was quick to get back to me with any questions I had and was very helpful. He was a big hit at our wedding too, all my guests just loved him! He was able to be a crowd pleaser and at the same time make a great video! Our video is just perfect! It was actually waiting for us in the mail when we got back from our honeymoon, we were surprised on how quickly he got it to us. Again, I would recommend Ryan to anyone, it was a pleasure working with him and having him at our wedding!"
- Whitney & James, Everett WA
"Like everyone these days, my newlywed wife and I work hard for our money. To find the best, most cost-effective multimedia vendor for our wedding was paramount. We researched and interviewed several vendors; ended up awarding Ryan our special day. Ryan provided himself to be an excellent communicator and made us feel that we had a multimedia partner, as opposed to a vendor. He listened to our needs and made suggestions based on his expertise. The final production of our wedding was well-crafted. Both our families were very happy and impressed with Ryan's work. I HIGHLY recommend others to sit down and have a consultation with Ryan. It will be apparent immediately, that your special day will be in excellent hands. All the best..."
- Peter & Lan, Seattle WA
"Ryan did a great job and was wonderful to work with. Very honest and organized. He covered every detail of our wedding day, at an affordable price."
- Devin & Seth, Spokane WA
"Love Ryan! Ryan caught everything on video that I wanted! Definitely was affordable and gave us footage to our wedding less than 3 days later. I totally recommend Ryanif you are looking for a great videographer who captures all those awesome moments! Thank you Ryan. :)"
- Brianna, Camano Island WA
"My only major mistake was to have an outdoor wedding ceremony in Seattle without a canopy. Darn rain! :( A decision I don't regret.....hiring Ryan as our wedding videographer. Ryan was not only a professional videographer, but he was a much needed support person for the entire day. Ryan was friendly, flexible, and went the extra mile. He pays special attention to detail and ensures that you are happy with the finished product. Thanks again Ryan for capturing one of the best days of my (our) life! :)"
- Leaha & Ben, Seattle WA
"Where do I start? Ryan was the 4th videographer I met with, and in this case the 4th time was the charm. Our meeting was great; he helped me have a better understanding and showed me his equipment. Ryan came to my wedding rehearsal to get a feel for the church, the rehearsal was kind of hectic and at one point I was in tears (not because of him) Ryan then said some positive and uplifting words and reassured me my wedding would be perfect. It didn't seem like he was just there to do a job, he actually cared and is passionate about what he does. The day of the wedding he was there early and left late. He didn’t miss anything and he was not intruding either. I would recommend Ryan to everyone...because of Ryan I have good material and can relive my wedding over and over again."
- Tanesha & Donte, Renton WA
"Ryan was incredibly responsive and friendly right from the start. We decided to get a videographer last-minute so it was a relief to have someone that was flexible and worked fast to get us quotes and answer questions. Ryan was unable to film our wedding but he made sure to be at the rehearsal and have someone else there to tape our wedding for us. Our review DVD was ready in no time and he took care of any issues that we had right away and made sure we were happy with it. Also I don't know much about videography but I'm pretty sure we got a good deal!"
- Veronika & Michael, Seattle WA
"When all is said and done, I was so thankful that we budgeted for a videographer. What was even better was that we had the pleasure to work with Ryan from Ryan. He is a vendor who is passionate about his work and he truly enjoys what he does. Ryan is pleasant, prompt, and professional. The quality of his work was above and beyond our expectations and yet still affordable. Pictures are wonderful but they don't capture the sweetness of the day quite like Ryan can. I highly recommend that all brides say I DO to this vendor."
- Sara & Ben, Spokane WA
"Ryan did a WONDERFUL job for us at our wedding. We love the way the video looks and he was there to capture our entire day right up to the end of the reception. If you are looking for high quality, easy to work with, friendly and professional then I would highly recommend Ryan to cover your special day. Both my wife and I could not have asked for a better way to remember our wedding. Thanks Ryan!!"
- Tyler & Michelle, Federal Way WA
"When we contacted Ryan, he was helpful and polite. He showed us some sample videos of weddings that he had done and we liked them. He gave us a discount for mentioning that we had found him on the web. He really worked with us to find something that would meet our needs and that would fit our price range. We received a great final product! He was very helpful. He is very prompt in answering e-mails and getting the product done. Don't be discouraged by the weird form at the beginning, if you tell him that you don't know what any of that is he will explain it to you like he did with us."
- Sandra & Ben, Bellevue WA
"Ryan was absolutely amazing! My fiancé and I were going for a non-traditional, documentary-style video, and he was a total pleasure to work with. His creativity helped bring out the results we were looking for, and our guests loved working with him so much that he is guaranteed the future business of all our friends and family! Not to mention that he has been the epitome of professionalism, punctuality, and great service. Working with Ryan, you just can't go wrong!"
- Eron & Nate, Bellevue WA
"We had a wonderful experience with Ryan! Ryan was reliable and hard working. Our wedding DVD is one of our most valued gifts from our wedding. He took creative, thoughtful shots of the pre-wedding, ceremony and reception. Getting a videographer is always a good idea, but if you go with Ryan, he will give his best. From start to finish, Ryan went above and beyond. On the day after our wedding, we chose to fly off the island where our wedding was on a little sea plane. He stayed an additional day on the island and didn't charge us anything extra for his extra time. As a means of comparison, my husband had a company promotional video produced just a few months before our video from Ryan. That video was only 3.5 minutes long and cost $3,000. Ryan's video was over 4.5 hours, cost just shy of $1,000 and was of very comparable video quality and editing. My husband and I would both like to offer a ringing endorsement for Ryan!"
- Alaina & Tom, North Bend WA
"I would recommend Ryan without hesitation! Ryan did a beautiful job of videoing our daughter's wedding. His creativity and integrity are outstanding! Ryan captured the tender moments of the event so we can enjoy them for years to come. His prices are reasonable and he is very delightful to work with. the final video is a treasure! His dedication to his work was evident at every turn."
- Kerry (Alaina's Mom), Weed CA
"We HIGHLY recommend Ryan of Ryan. Ryan videographed both our wedding and reception. My husband first learned of Ryan and contacted Ryan. He was immediately impressed by Ryan’s knowledge and enthusiasm. In preparing for the videography, we first reviewed the Ryan website, then talked with Ryan as we went through the process of getting a quote. We talked with Ryan a couple of times as we made our way through the questions (and he made it clear we didn’t have to answer all of them, and he helped us understand the reasons behind the questions). We believe that we got the video results we were looking for as a result of his thorough pre-event planning. We then talked with several other couples who had used Ryan for recent weddings – all were very encouraging and enthusiastic about Ryan’s service and their videos. Ryan’s quote for services was more reasonable than several others we contacted. Ryan came to our church for the rehearsal the day before the ceremony (even though we hadn’t required this), and made some suggestions which resulted in a better product. He worked well with the sound technician from our church (sharing a small space in the balcony), as well as with the photographer for our wedding and reception. Ryan captured our wedding beautifully and worked to produce a thorough video from our reception. He captured the reception setting and most guests on the video. He stayed close to us and kept us smiling through much of the reception. Ryan worked closely with us when our review video was lost by the Postal Service, and kept in close contact and quickly sent a replacement. He was amenable to making a few minor changes (ex: fonts and volume of interviews), and was quick to produce the final DVD’s for us. We are very pleased with the end product, and HIGHLY recommend Ryan for your wedding (or other event) video."
- Craig & Francie, Bellevue WA
"I had a connection with a friend of a friend for a videographer, but I went online to research what normal prices were, and what what was included for the given price. I'm glad I did. Low and behold I found Ryan while browsing randomly online. I put in my information on the easy to use website, including what I wanted (ex. 1-3 songs, only 1 photographer), and was given back an estimate almost immediately. The estimate was EXACTLY what I paid for the finished product, and cheaper than my friend of a friend with more accessories! Ryan even came to my rehearsal (but not to our rehearsal dinner :) ) to scope out the ceremony location so he could get a feel for how things would work on the wedding day. I certainly didn't ask him to do this. This is how they are: very proactive, quick and attentive, you won't be waiting endless hours to find an answer to your question. The actual wedding day he was very attentive as well and got plenty of good shots, angles, and of course all the important parts (toast, bouquet toss, garter toss, first dances). Ryan also spent some time with us during our reception to get what I can only describe as what would look like in a romantic music video. Myself and my groom holding each other, smiling and whispering to each other while music is in the background playing. This didn't take any time away from our reception because it was while our photographer was taking pictures! The finished DVD (which I got 2 copies of by the way, and 2 samples) were great. Overall excellent customer service! I would recommend Ryan to anyone, whether you have a budget or don't, its affordable, you have MANY options, and they are willing to work with you!"
- Anneliese & Allen, Everett, WA
"Ryan filmed my son's wedding in July and he did a sensational job. I knew nothing about videography and he answered every question and gave me many options. He came to the rehearsal at the church and spent a lot of time going over every detail. He did a fantastic job on the wedding and everyone is thrilled with the video. He stayed for the entire reception and everybody had fun with him and remarked about how nice he was. I would not hesitate to use Ryan again, he truly produced a beautiful commemorative DVD that we can enjoy for many years to come. Thanks so much!"
- Troyce, Renton WA
"Our wedding was planned in less than 3 months- and we were hurriedly looking for a videographer to capture our big day. We luckily stumbled upon Ryan who took the time out to meticulously reply back to our emails in a timely and efficient manner. We were also fortunate enough to correspond not only via email but also over text and phone. Although the time was ticking upon us for the arrival of our wedding- we didn't feel any concern or anxiety with our videographer- he displayed his professionalism and punctuality throughout our correspondence with him. When we requested a sample of his DVD and our schedules conflicted he offered to just express mail the sample and called us for confirmation of delivery. His website is very straightforward- questions that were brought up through the general survey is pretty standard- providing that you know how long you want footage to be covered, how important music is throughout your DVD, and all the important details that needed to be addressed such as microphone usage, start/end time, etc. The day before the wedding; he arrived at our rehearsal to go over some basics- he pretty much wanted to ensure that he had coverage from every angle at the Church- and whether or not his microphone would be able to function at the venue. All these details were important to Randy *now husband and I because we wanted to make sure that every word was captured in the DVD- (the DVD is going to be sent to his mother overseas). Simply put- his standard operating procedures were on point and he seemed just as excited and happy as we were. On the day of the wedding- he arrived earlier than expected and checked in with our wedding planner- and everywhere we were, he was there with his camera and gear. He never missed a single precious moment and although our wedding ceremony and reception lasted until the wee hours of the night- he still remained calm, professional, and humorous. Not only was he able to go above and beyond his service role- he exceeded expectations when there were several songs that weren't available in his library and he went out of his way to search for them and add them to our DVD. His exceptional service and go-get attitude shone through every step of the way! His outstanding service will definitely have us recommending him to our friends and family!"

"My Husband and I approached Ryan for our June 2009 wedding Videography. We filled out his online form with questions regarding our needs for the weddings. It had questions that made me think more, such as how many diffusers I would need or questions like what camera angles I would like and so on. I loved this question sheet because it made me evaluate my locations and do some due diligence on the questions asked. It was helpful because one of the Grand Ballrooms I had chosen was a little dim and needed the extra light. This thorough question sheet helped us plan our wedding better and have solid footage from our wedding. I am happy he had us fill it out ahead of time. Afterwards, we received a preliminary quote for our event. Than we met Ryan to discuss the quote and review more of his work. This is when we reviewed the quote and did more investigating as well. REALLY HELPFUL! Ryan was able to educate us on ways to better the video results and it didn't change the cost! To further impress us Ryan is an absolute professional who is super friendly and is a pleasure to have as a part of our special moment. A week before the wedding we met with Ryan a second time. We met at a local Red Robin and I brought a bit of my family with me. Ryan blended right in and we had a blast. This was important for us because we wanted someone who could get along with our family, who at times can even drive us nuts :). We are extremely proud of the work Ryan did and even his follow up with us. He has been a pleasure to work with and all my family and friends are excited to see his final video of our wedding. WE all have reviewed his raw footage and it is AWESOME!!!! Ryan is the best professional Videographer we could have had be a part of our wedding. He worked seamlessly with my Photographer (who also praised him heavily). Ryan will always be the one we choose for any of our video needs in the future."

"I would HIGHLY recommend this vendor. Ryan worked very hard at our daughter's wedding. He came the day before to rehearsal to make sure that he set up in the right place. He stayed for the duration of the ceremony and the reception. He totally captured every important moment and those unexpected too! He was professional, personable and a joy to work with. I can't say enough about the video. It was beautiful and it is now something we will treasure the rest of lives. Our daughter and her husband along his parents were delighted with video and are so thankful that we chose Ryan for this very special day. We have another daughter and son and when they get married Ryan will be one of the first calls that I will make. Not only is he good at his job, but he is very nice young man."

"We loved working with Ryan. We found him online, called him last minute, and found him to be very professional and fun. Our video is wonderful!! We really loved his prices, too. He goes out of his way to be reasonable, and I think it was a miracle we were able to get such a high quality video at such a reasonable price. He also went out of his way to take into account all the details of the wedding situation, before the day of the wedding! Although I think we found him less than 2 weeks before the wedding, he was able to visit our site twice, suggest lighting, get to know our people, answer our questions, take care of things himself when we just were overwhelmed and didn't know (he was definitely not high maintenance!), create a unique product, not be stingy with the rights (he would have allowed us to put up the video on You tube and even help us with that, had we found the time!), and be a blessing... He was also right on top of producing the video as quickly as possible! We loved the interviews or comments he got onto the video at the reception as well, what a surprise! It really helped us to relive the wedding, which was important, because it went by so fast for us. Thanks Ryan for such a great job!!"
