My husband and I were recently married in December and hired Gabriel Van Wyhe as our photographer. Gabe has a very calm demeanor which is something I knew we would appreciate come wedding day. Gabe and Jaci arrived on time and ready to shoot! They captured all of the images we had requested and so many more. We couldn't be happier with the results! Gabe was great about taking control during the family shots (there was a lot of us) and then slipping back in to the shadows during the ceremony and reception. You almost forget he's there! Towards the end of the night Gabe set up a photo booth for our family and friends. It's safe to say that was a HUGE hit! Thank you Gabe and Jaci for capturing special moments we'll be able to cherish forever.

There is something to be said about a person who can magnificently capture that one special day, one in which to date, is the best day on the planet for my husband and I...and who can literally make the most epic photos from it. Photos that we get to show off everywhere to our friends and loved ones for the rest of our lives. We truly picked and could not be more happier with our pick with Gabriel for our photographer. Him and his wife are an amazing team and the talent behind Van Wyhe Photography is beyond amazing. There are so many more chapters in our lives to come and I can't wait to have him capture all those special moments for us in our future.

Could not have asked for a better experience! We planned an outdoor wedding and it ended up pouring rain. Van Wyhe didn't hesitate to get soaked in order to get the best shots possible. Since day one he was super flexible with a changing schedule and took the time to get to know us so that our pictures seemed natural. He will make the whole experience unforgettable!

My Husband and I LOVED Gabriel and his wife! They did our engagement photos, wedding photos, and photo booth at the wedding. They put us at ease each time we worked with them and are great at helping create your wedding day timeline. The photos from the wedding turned out beautiful, we couldn't be happier. They even were able to work around A LOT of rain the day of the wedding and made it fun! I would recommend Van Wyhe Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. They also setup a 10x10 photo booth at the wedding that all of our guest really enjoyed!

I was impressed with Van Wyhe from the first meeting we had. We first met many months before my wedding and with his help we laid out the entire day's itinerary. At first I was overwhelmed, but I realized that the photo schedule is probably the most crucial element of the wedding since those photos last forever. Gabriel was very responsive in email exchanges and the payment process is very simple and easy with your own client portal online. The day of the wedding went so smoothly, and because of Gabriel we were able to stick to a very tight photo schedule and got every picture we wanted. When we received notice our pictures were ready it was so easy to view online with our own password protected viewing site and the pictures took our breath away. Van Wyhe captured the essence of our wedding day and you can feel the emotion through their images. We could not be happier with the pictures from our big day and are so grateful for Gabriel & Jaci’s hard work.

Gabe and Jaci were so incredible to work with! They did our engagment session, our wedding and my trash the dress session with my horse. They were so fun, engaging, creative, and a wonderful addition to the best day of our lives. The photos were artistic, detailed and captured the feel of moments that meant the most to us. I could not be any happier with how the photos turned out. Gabe has an amazing eye for beautiful shots and truly knows every detail. His lighting was impecable and he helped us to be natural in front of the camera. They went above and beyond helping us through our day and celebrating with us! Hands down, the best wedding decision I made!

Of all our wonderful wedding vendors, Van Wyhe Photography was the best. Gabe and his wife, Jaci are not only incredibly talented and professional photographers, but they were also therapists, cheerleaders, planners, problem solvers, and super heroes on our "big day". We were interested in them because of their beautiful work and reasonable pricing, we hired them because of their excellent packages and professionalism, and we have and will continue to recommend them to our friends and family because they provided us with all we could have asked for and more. They have a gift for helping you to relax into the chaos of the day and even helping you to enjoy it! They made me, my husband, and our loved ones feel so comfortable and relaxed in front of the lens and throughout the day. We are so pleased with our photos and with our whole experience from my first email to them to our final wedding photos. We can't wait to hire them again for the important future milestones we'll have together as husband and wife!

When it comes to professional photography, it doesn't get much better than Van Wyhe Photography. Not only were all pictures they took for our engagement and wedding absolutely perfect, but Gabe and Jaci are an absolute joy to work with. Van Wyhe Photography is very professional in regards to promptness and they went above and beyond our expectations and captured every little moment of our big day, down to the tiny details. When my husband and I finally got to sit down to look at our wedding photos, it was as if we were able to relive the day because the pictures retold our wedding day story. Do yourself a favor and book Van Wyhe Photography NOW! :)

Gabriel was a true pleasure to work with and the consummate professional! He went above and beyond the role of photographer for our wedding, including sending us a pre-wedding package all in our travel theme! We loved our pictures and he helped make our wedding experience so much more enjoyable by not having to worry about anything having to do with our photographs! Highly recommend!!!

When starting to plan my wedding I knew the photographer would be one of the most important vendors to both of us since we would always look back at the pictures. We were so happy to find Gabriel and he was absolutely fantastic. He helped us every step of the way. He was very quick to respond to any of the emails I sent him beforehand. The photo’s are beyond words, and he gave us way more than we expected to receive. Gabriel captured every moment of the wedding. We also had the photobooth at our wedding reception and it was a huge hit. We had a lot of younger kids in attending and they loved the photobooth. I would recommend Gabriel to anyone, he was worth every penny. The photo’s live up to the entire day of our wedding.

Van Wyhe Photography provided me and my boyfriend with the most amazing engagement shoot. Gabriel was there every step of the way helping me with the process of finding the perfect location and type of photos we wanted. He was so flexible and took all of my ideas and thoughts into consideration when planning for the shoot. He made the entire process so much easier and enjoyable, and he was always quick to reply whenever I had a question (there were lots). The day of the shoot he made us feel SO much at ease and made the shoot a ton of FUN!! The photos are phenomenal; we are so happy we chose Van Wyhe Photography and had an amazing time throughout this process!

Van Wyhe Photography photographed our wedding and the experience and photos were amazing! Gabriel and Jaci were great to work with, they are a great husband and wife team!

Choosing a photographer is a daunting task, especially when it's for your wedding. I was so relieved when we met them. I knew within minutes that we'd found the right photographer for our wedding. They were professional and attentive every step of the way. They have such an amazing eye for detail and the photographs are just incredible! I laugh and cry every time I look at them!

Everything was included, making it so easy for me – engagement photos, wedding photos, and a fun photo booth! Just amazing!
The photos are so beautiful, and they really captured the fun, the love, and the happiness of the day, and who we are as a couple.

We highly recommend them! They are the best!

happy wedding planning! :)

My husband and I are very happy with our wedding photos! Gabe did such an awesome job and he has so easy to work with.

We met with him almost more than a year in advance and he was always very professional at every meeting and extremely responsive to all of our emails and questions. The day of the wedding was amazing and the family photos went so smoothly (we were even waaay ahead of schedule).

After receiving our photos, it was almost like we were reliving our epic day. I would highly recommend Van Wyhe Photography to anyone who wants quality photos and a fun photographer who you can feel comfortable with. It was definitely money well spent! It is very likely that we will be a repeat customer for future celebrations and family photos :)

Gabe and Jaci are the best! We were so lucky to have them as our photographers. They were easy to work with, organized and professional. Thanks to some advice Gabe gave us at our first meeting our wedding was totally fun, stress-free and low-key, just the way we wanted it. Everything ran smoothly and on time. I also had beautiful boudoir photos done by Jaci in pinup fashion and old school Hollywood glamour, which I would also highly recommend! My husband loved them, and so did I :-) It was like having our good friends photograph our wedding, and we really couldn't ask for more. Thanks so much!!! We love you!

My wife and I loved the Van Wyhe's. The way they conducted themselves throughtout the entire wedding process was amazing. In fact, we were able to construct our wedding day schedule almost completely around Gabriel's experience and knowledge of wedding ceremonies and receptions. Without his help, planning the entire day would have been a difficult task.

We will definitely be using the Van Wyhe's for any future photography sessions. Thank you Gabe and Jaci.

Gab and his wife Jackie are simply the best! They make sure you get all the shots you need and also the ones you want. The pictures are always beautiful and the best quality you could ask for. They have an ability to make you feel comfortable with them from the moment you meet them. Its doesn't feel like a stranger taking your wedding picutes, but on old friend. They are a true pleasure to work with!

We had a great time working with Van Wyhe Photography. When ever I had a question he was very helpful. We were dealing with a military time schedule and he was able to finish our Engagment photo's in a VERY short amount of time and we LOVE so many of them. On the day of the wedding we had a lot of fun taking our pictures with the bridal party and the fun booth was a huge hit with everyone. We are very excited to see our wedding pictures and I know they will be awesome. Thank You Jacki and Gabriel

Gabe was such a great photographer. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else to have done our wedding. I love all the photos he took. The only thing I would have changed was to have him longer. Gabe was always quick to respond, did what we wanted, was very flexible and is easy to get along with. He made taking photos fun and silly. We recommended one of our friends to him and their wedding is tomorrow. Gabe is the man you want to shoot your wedding. :)

Gabe and his wife Jaci were amazing!!!!! From the engagement shoot that we did at Pike Place, to the wedding day, every interaction with them was fun!!! Everyone who has ever seen our engagement shoot photos have raved about them constantly. We were just married early this month, so we're waiting on our wedding photos in the coming weeks, but we know they will be even more amazing!

Gabe and Jaci are so lighthearted, entertaining and relaxed. They like to have a good time at the shoots, and have a unique eye for creativity that is so hard to find in other cookie-cutter photographers.

They set up a "Fun Photo Booth" at our wedding which allowed our guests to take pictures in costume/props that made the night so entertaining! My guests raved about how fun our reception was, and they loved Gabe and Jaci.

They felt more like family at our wedding, than like photographers we hired!

Their work is worth much more than they charge! I recommend this photographer team to every bride I encounter!

Thank you Gabe and Jaci for making our day so very special!!

My husband and I absolutely loved Gabriel! He is friendly, professional, positive, easy-going, knowledgeable and obviously loves what he does. He was by far the easiest of our vendors to work with from start to finish and gave great wedding advice during the planning stages. He made our wedding day photo session a lot of fun and one of our favorite parts of the day. And most importantly, our wedding photos turned out gorgeous! As a photography hobbyist on a budget, it was difficult to find someone that offered the quality I wanted at the price I wanted. Gabriel far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone!

We discovered Gabe Van Wyhe at a Seattle bridal expo, and I was instantly drawn to the style of his wedding albums, which included attractive vintage washes. He is warm and responsive, and I was so impressed with his light, upbeat manner on the 'day of'. The pictures were AMAZING- we loved every picture and he really captured the fun, beautiful, and intimate essence of our day. He took the time to deliver the 'best' pics in a traditiional wash, vintage-y warm wash and also b & w which looked awesome. The hardest part was selecting the 40 to go into the physical album since we loved them all. I've seen wedding pictures that are stiff and with generic poses- he captured plenty of unique, candid and emotion focused photos of the bridal party and of bridal pre-ceremony prep(approx 10-13 different settings around the property) in a relatively short period of time.


The photo booth was so much fun and we bought instamix prints for our guests to take home which i recommend- Gabe simply takes an instamix(polaroid) shot and a 'pro camera' shot, which enables guests to have a physical memento of the wedding. He brings props which adds to the fun.

In sum, I definitely recommend van Wyhe photography- he is flexible and responsive to your unique needs, both in terms of the wedding day poses you prefer, and the end product you desire.
