- Kyle Goldie
Personally, I have been a wedding photographer for now over 12 years (I promise I'm not 93 years old), and I have worked countless Snohomish wedding venues over the years. In fact, the majority of the wedding venues in the area are within 15 minutes from where I live. Yep! I live right down the street! So, you can be 100% confident that I know the area incredibly well and everything it has to offer for you and your wedding day.
You can learn more about me on my official "About" page, but for now, have a look around, check out portfolio, scroll down to learn more about the FAQs I get all the time about Snohomish weddings... and simply, let's get to know each other.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
A: Totally! Snohomish venues are super popular, so as soon as you know your wedding date that you want - book it! Don't wait at all. Lock it in! And when you approach the venue of your dreams, it's even a good idea to have a backup date in mind. After all, if that Saturday you want to book is already taken, booking that venue on a Friday or Sunday can not only be available, but it might be available for a lower rate as well! Each owner/manager operates differently, so make sure to get in touch with them directly and ask your questions early.
There's never a time "too early" to lock in the venue and the vendors who you really want to ensure are there for you on your wedding day. Same goes for your Snohomish wedding photographer - me. I've had many couples even book with me prior to their wedding to ensure they have their date reserved on my calendar, and then they find a wedding venue that fits that date.
A: Personally, I love many Snohomish wedding venues! Many are rustic, industrial, spacious, peaceful, secluded, yet modern at the same time. Many offer easy parking, beautiful backdrops for portraits, and the peace that you're looking for on such a special day.
Have a look below for some of the best Snohomish wedding venues and click on the one(s) you want more info on! Each venue image below will take you to a blog post from a real wedding that I've photographed there, or at least some helpful information to get you the answers that you're looking for.

Timeless, Beautiful, and So Much Fun."
Where should we take our
A: At your venue! Heading off-site for your Snohomish wedding is not recommended, so book a wedding venue that makes for amazing photos! To be quite frank, Snohomish doesn't offer many areas off-site that cater to high-end portraits... but the venues themselves do. So, stay there! Haha.
On my blog, you will see a bunch of different wedding photos that I have taken around Snohomish, but the easiest thing is honestly just by reaching out to me personally and having an open chat. After all, everybody's desired aesthetic is a little bit different, and even the time of year that you are planning on getting married is going to make a difference in my opinion regarding recommendations for Snohomish wedding venues.
Winter & Spring, plan for rain. So, that automatically eliminates a few venues if you don't want to be soaked since some venues are totally outdoors with just a tent. That said, I have photographed plenty of rain weddings over the years for outdoor weddings - and they're still gorgeous because of the decor, the mood thats set because of the design, and the energy of the guests.
Summer & Fall, you honestly can't really go wrong. Everything is so gorgeous this time of year. Just don't discount having a wedding in the "off season" because you can still have an incredible wedding day - and probably save a bit of money along the way. Money that you can put towards your honeymoon and traveling around the world. (My wife and I did that to get the best of both worlds).
That said, a look through some of the venues listed on this page and some of the FAQs that I get as a Snohomish wedding photographer. They're Snohomish wedding venues that you'll find on my featured page link directly to individual blog posts so you can learn more about each and my honest insights about them. And as always, let me know your questions. I can definitely help you.

"We Are Blown Away. Every Single Photo is Absolutely
Where should we get ready for our
A: It really depends on which Snohomish wedding venue that you book because many venues offer dedicated getting-ready areas. If it's possible, I'd highly recommend that you get ready on-site. Simply put, having a dedicated (and separate) getting-ready areas for both the groomsmen and the bridesmaids makes for a much more peaceful day. With that available, you won't have to rush around from one place to the next, and you simply are just more present with your wedding and your guests.
That said, if your venue doesn't have a place for you to get ready thats big enough or beautiful enough for what you're wanting, I'd recommend getting a gorgeous Air B&B somewhere with big windows and tons of natural light. Natural light is your best friend when it comes to creating those soft, airy, romantic photographs that you've always dreamed of and that you want to hang on your wall forever.
As a Snohomish wedding photographer who's worked many weddings around Snohomish, I highly recommend you book a venue where you can get ready there. So, scout around, have a look through my personal favorite Snohomish wedding venues, and shoot me a message with all your questions.
Quick idea: What if you booked a cool river or lakeside cabin within an hour drive of your venue in Snohomish, got ready there, had your pre-ceremony portraits and first look photos at that location, then drove to to the venue to get married? Could be pretty amazing, depending on the location and the rental you find.

"The Pictures Are
And They Feel Like They Are Straight Out of A Magazine!"
How Many Hours of Coverage Do We Need?
A: It totally depends on your big day details, but most couples are totally happy with 8 hours. If you are wanting more of the "all day" sort of coverage, 10 hours would be your best match -- but 9 hours is the happy middle ground. If you book 6 hours for a traditional wedding day, you are going to miss either a bit at the beginning or a bit at the end (or a little of both). I would highly recommend to start with 8 as the base, then add on as you see fit for your wedding day.
The biggest decision is really all about how much reception that you want covered by your Snohomish wedding photographer. Are you planning on doing a special send-off at the end of the night? If so, you might want that 10 hour coverage -- if you don't want to do a fake send-off when your photographer is scheduled to leave. There's a few variables here. For now, the most important thing is locking in your Snohomish wedding photographer by locking them in before they get booked up. You can always add on time after everything is made official, too. So, at the very minimum, I highly recommend you start with at least 8 hours. And personally speaking, that's what roughly 90% of couples who book me stick with.
Just get in touch ASAP since couples book me (usually) quite far in advance.

Kyle is worth his weight in gold! In the day and age of countless apps and filters it’s hard to find a photographer 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."
Ava & Patryk
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!

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 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.

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 and confident throughout the process."
Serena & David
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!
