Personally, I've been a full-time Seattle wedding & elopement photographer now for over 10 years (that's pretty bananas)! I reside in the Pacific Northwest with my wife, Haley, after having worked in places like Los Angeles, Portland, Vancouver BC, and Scottsdale, Hawaii & New York.

My photography 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. Just remember - no distance is too far . I am excited to hear from you and learn more about how I can help you with your wedding photography (and your experience of a lifetime)! Let's do this.
No Distance is Too Far
Bottom line, no distance is too far for your photography love story. I've now personally traveled to 28 countries with my wife, and we've only just scratched the surface. There are so many beautiful places to see and people to meet. I'm excited for the next wedding adventure.
And let's be real. You have a LOT of options in the world of Seattle wedding photography. But if you want those gorgeous photography heirlooms you've always been dreaming of and an incredible time while creating it all - let's chat.
Personally, I am based near Seattle in the seaside town of Edmonds, but I am available for quite literally anywhere you are having your wedding day. Whether you are looking for a local Seattle wedding photographer, or a photographer to travel along with you around the globe to some of the most epic destinations that exist, I want to be there for you. My wife and I are always excited for the next adventure (and new friendships).

"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."
Morgan & Jeff
Kyle is worth his weight in gold! In the day and age of countless apps and filters it’s hard to find a wedding photographer in Seattle 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 photography is amazing, but he was also able to capture the quiet little moments I may have otherwise forgotten about.
"Kyle does a wonderful job of making the camera disappear - you just live in the moment."
Courtney & Dylan
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 for your photography.

"Kyle did a great job in keeping our energy up and was able to capture our personalities."
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. They were our best professional vendor. Hire them immediately for your photography.
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! When looking for the best photographers - look no further.

Dana & Jim
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! Get them all the awards!
"If you're looking to book a destination wedding photographer, look no further."
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! Professional wedding photography - check!

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 & warm personality made for a fun and comfortable day at many locations. 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.

Kyle Goldie is an excellent [Seattle wedding 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!
Aurelia & Alejandro
"Their personable yet professional approach helped us feel comfortable & confident throughout the process."
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!

"He really was a perfect combination.... Kyle was well researched, fast, efficient, and a direct but kind creative director."
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!

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!!

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 the professional wedding photography, Kyle & Haley joined in on our celebration and we all just clicked!

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 and the storytelling behind his style! When looking for Seattle wedding photography, book him. No wonder they've won so many awards!
A: For weddings around Seattle, Washington, couples spend between $7,500-12,000 to book us, on average. Elopements slightly less. For destination 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. For a specific, custom quote for your unique wedding day - please make sure to reach out to me ASAP.
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: 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: First and foremost, romantic & timeless. Beyond that photography foundation, I am committed to authentic storytelling to capture your real moments throughout your wedding day. That said, I will guide you through it all with a strategic timeline (or coordination with the assistance of your wedding planner) and help you both relax and truly be in the moment - but at the same time, guide you what to do so your gallery is as best as it can possibly be. Perfectly crafted art comes from feeling comfortable in front of beautifully crafted light. After all, your day is about you. It's about the details, the emotion, the photojournalistic & natural story. It's where the motion of authentic moments meets gorgeous, intentionally-curated & guided poses. Bottom line, it is my commitment to deliver heirloom quality photographs that you will cherish forever.
A: Mount Rainier, The San Juan Islands, the North Cascades mountain range, waterfall elopements, Hoh Rainforest enveloped in fog, the Seattle Great Wheel, a Washington State ferry elopement or vow renewal, a lighthouse wedding, and so many more UNIQUE, bucket list ideas exist in the Pacific Northwest. You don't just need to default to a traditional wedding venue. And with so many wedding photographers to choose from, you're bound to find an incredible pairing between location & style of photography that you're going to remember for the rest of your life. So, bring your dog, bring your pet dove, be surrounded by ferns, water or trees - and get ready to have the experience of a lifetime. Just let me bring my camera.
A: I love traveling more than most things in life. The cultures, the people, the experience, the sights, sounds & smells - all of it. New things bring me life. And new places for a ceremony bring me back to the creativity of being a photographer. In my two cents only - your wedding or elopement should be about you, not anyone else. So, consider taking that traditional wedding budget that you had in mind for Seattle and cut that guest list by 50-90%. Take that savings and get yourself an incredible wedding venue at a destination that feels like a honeymoon. Then, spend some money on some guided tours, some fancy dinners, cocktail hours, and design it with full intentionality. It could be at a Four Seasons hotel or an intimate private estate. Wherever you choose to hold your romantic wedding reception is going incredible. Just go. Have the adventure. Make your story. And again, just let me bring my camera. Let's go have some fun together.
A: In short, now. There's never a point too early, unless you are 16+ months away from your wedding date. And sure, you can look on a variety of wedding sites like Wedding Wire, The Knot, Black Bride, MunaLuchi Bridal, or of course - social sharing sites like Pinterest - but I recommend you find a wedding photographer you really love. This of course depends on your budget for your photography, but your wedding planner should have some solid recommendations. Same with your wedding reception/venue. Beyond that, simply Google for wedding photographers in that area, buy a couple of the leading wedding magazines and look at the credit lines, and search on IG or TikTok for the photographer there. Bottom line, do your due diligence. Or, you know, just hire me to be your Seattle wedding photographer. That works too.
A: I've been a professional photographer since 2008. And since that time, I have had hundreds of brides, grooms, and their wedding planners reach out to only find that I am already booked for their big day. So, don't hesitate to reach out early. So, check out their portfolio and it locked in and on your photographers calendar ASAP.
