I reside in the PNW with my wife, Haley, after having worked in places like Los Angeles, Portland, Vancouver BC, and Scottsdale, Hawaii & New York.

My work has been seen around the world in places like Harpers Bazaar, Coach, Conde Nast, Brides, Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Martha Stewart Weddings, Vogue, Esquire, and so many other amazingly respected brands. And over the past decade, I've photographed more than 1,000 clients, taken more than a million photographs, and have truly dedicated my professional life to being the best I can be.
Simply put, I love what I do, and I treat every wedding and elopement as if it were my own. I am available for you literally anywhere around the world. No distance is too far. I am excited to hear from you and learn more about how I can help you! Let's do this.

Kyle is worth his weight in gold! In the day and age of countless apps and filters it’s hard to find a photographer in Washington who is truly talented and professional. I can’t tell you how many hours I spent sifting through different profiles and pictures trying to find someone who’s work caught my eye, until I came across Kyle. His work is timeless and beautiful and you can tell that this is his passion. This guy really knows what he’s doing with his 10+ years of experience. From our very first email until the last moments of our wedding he was nothing but kind and helpful. He answered every question every step of the way and was the calm in the chaos on the big day. Our pictures are absolutely STUNNING! He made it look like our wedding belongs in a magazine. His portrait work is amazing, but he was also able to capture the quiet little moments I may have otherwise forgotten about.

"hands down - the best thing we did for our wedding. Because of Kyle, we are able to relive the most special day of our lives."
Very professional and prompt through the entire communication process. This was especially important since we planned a destination wedding in Tulum, Mexico at the Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa.
We felt so comfortable in front of the camera - Kyle did a great job in keeping our energy up and was able to capture our personalities and some truly romantic moments!

The day was absolutely incredible, When we returned from our adventure with Kyle, we were not the same people as when we had left. Kyle does a wonderful job of making the camera disappear - you just live in the moment.
We are proud to call Kyle our photographer. For anyone looking to make a lasting moment of your special day, book Luma Weddings.

Kyle does such an excellent job capturing every moment!
He truly knows how to capture your personal style and event style in the photographs. I highly recommend him & Haley! They are such an amazing husband & wife team. We absolutely loved our wedding photos at the Vizcaya Museum in Miami!
"He truly knows how to capture your personal style and event style in the photographs."
Kyle did such an amazing job with our engagement and wedding photos. We had a destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico at Moon Palace Nizuc, and Kyle knew exactly what to do with the harsh sunlight, hot weather, and extreme humidity, not to mention how to avoid all the tourists in the backgrounds.
If you're looking to book a destination wedding photographer, look no further, Kyle is your person, he's super easy to work with and he can give you lots of great suggestions!

Kyle did an exceptional job photographing our engagement. We did the Epic package and it truly lived up to its name. He photographed us in an intimate and genuine way. His down to earth nature and warm personality made for a fun and comfortable day. Kyle's Seattle wedding photography perfectly encompassed our love and the awe-inspiring vista of the lake. Kyle personalized the experience for us, and made it a truly memorable experience. After the shoot, Kyle delivered authentic, perfectly color corrected images that were a true representation of our engagement. This was truly a magical and worthwhile investment that we will cherish forever. We highly recommend Kyle for being so prompt, professional, and just an awesome person. You will not be disappointed.

"It's hard to pick just one photo when every single one is so gorgeous."
Kyle Goldie is an excellent photographer and very professional. He truly captured the best moments of the JM Cellars wedding we had in a magical way.
The pictures of our wedding day are unbelievable - and feel like they're straight out of a magazine!

We have nothing but great things to say about Luma Weddings. Besides the fact that our photos turned out AMAZING (and now grace nearly every wall in our house) our experience working with Kyle and Haley was fantastic.
The day of our wedding Kyle and Haley were a blast to have around. They made the entire wedding party feel so comfortable and they knew how to handle the rain like a pro. Haley even helped sew my dress when it broke during the reception - she was awesome! We have had multiple friends and future brides book through Luma Weddings after hearing about our experience and seeing how our photos turned out. They are on the rise though so I'd suggest booking ASAP!

"Their personable yet professional approach helped us feel comfortable & confident throughout the process."
We're so happy we chose Luma Weddings to photograph the most important day of our lives together. Kyle and Haley make a great team together and they instantly felt like new friends. So friendly and professional at the same time. He is an excellent wedding photographer, he captured every perfect moment at the right moment so that we can relive that day through his wonderful pictures. Turn around time was fast! Half the time that we were expecting!! We absolutely loved that he gave us several shots, even when they were the same pose, that we could pick out OUR favorites. We're grateful and impressed with the quality AND quantity! He provided 100% value along with his beautiful side-kick, they are a must have for your wedding. Thank you so much Kyle and Haley!!

Every guest commented after our wedding - “How did you come across such an amazing photographer? He really was a perfect combination.” Kyle was well researched, fast, efficient, and a direct but kind creative director. We really lucked out that he and his wife Haley were available to photograph and day-of direct our wedding. I couldn’t be happier with his leadership in keeping us on time, organized, and I’m extra grateful for his brilliant artistic insight. Both Kyle and Haley were professional and gracious. My guests all want to be friends with them now, as well. Our stunning pics arrived much faster than expected. I couldn’t be more thankful that Luma Weddings travelled all way to the mountains of Idaho to make our special day a perfect day. 10/10!

Kyle shot our wedding in Cancun Mexico last weekend. He did an amazing job at making sure we were comfortable and adjusting to our late schedule. Beyond our awesome photographs, Kyle & Haley joined in on our celebration and we all just clicked!
Outside of our AMAZING wedding photos, they were just so great to be with! We would highly recommend Kyle & Haley Goldie at Luma Weddings for any special events! SO MUCH FUN!

I just received my wedding pictures and am SO EXCITED and extremely happy with the final product. They arrived much sooner than we expected. With so much wedding planning and anxiety, I can say that booking Kyle to be our photographer was one of our best decisions.
I got the pictures I've always dreamed of. Thank you, Kyle and Haley!!! You guys are the best Seattle wedding photographers.

Kyle was absolutely amazing! He was kind and flexible throughout the day and was focused on the vision that we had for our photos.
During the time leading up to the wedding Kyle was so helpful, easy to work with and he always responded to my emails quickly. We couldn't be happier with our photos! When looking for Seattle wedding photography, book him.

A: There's no wrong path! You can certainly get gorgeous photos either way. It all comes down to the experience you're wanting, the aesthetic of the location, and how intimate you want it all to be. Typically with elopements, you're able to lean more into the adventure of your wedding day, whereas traditional Seattle wedding photography will get you exactly that - something more traditional. My two cents: Look for something that is for YOU and not for other people.
A: When looking for the best experience for your wedding in Washington, there's tons of options. And after photographing hundreds of wedding all across the state, I certainly have my favorites (for many reasons). But if you're early in your search, check out these Seattle wedding venues, these Snohomish wedding venues, and these Whidbey Island wedding venues. Of course, there's way more to look through if you are searching through a different part of Washington - but simply reach out to me and I'll help point you in the right direction. Promise.
A: For weddings around Seattle, Washington, couples spend between $4500-8000, on average. For destination weddings or island weddings, there is normally a nominal travel fee to get to and from your wedding day. For more details regarding pricing, please visit the investment page.It all really comes down to total desired hours of coverage and a few other variables.
