Hello! Instead of reading this little (and some how wordy) page, you should send a message and lets get to know each other over appetizers. Im a firm believer in that you should choose a wedding photographer that not only takes great pictures, but is someone that you like spending time around, as there is a good chance that we are going to spend a long day together, not just any day, your wedding day. Its important to us that we have great relationships with the people that we shoot, generally its a win-win-win, you have a better time having your photo taken, your photos look better, and it makes our job the best!
I am Nichole Sams and I am the owner and director of Skeleton Key Studios, a wedding photography and video team. We are based in Seattle, however we luckily get to travel from time to time for amazing destination weddings.
I love wedding photography. I feel its my calling to document... and also help people on their day. Nick and I have been married for going on 8 years now (thats right, pre-pinterest) and when I started doing it the business, I wanted to do it differently that the rest of the industry. I wanted to give amazing service to couples, shoot cinematic photo and video, capturing memories for generations to come, and I wanted to do it for a good value. Most of all I wanted to treat people the way I wanted to be treated, with respect, care and integrity. Little did I know that I would have the amazing honor to work with people who I often get to call friends and as quirky as us!
We believe that love is love, and we celebrate it in every form it comes in, and thats something that is very important to us. So if you were looking for someone who is okay with ______, then you've probably found us! We have been lucky to get to witness all kinds of unions from casual backyard vows, to all night dance party racers, to intimate private ceremonies, to cultural fusion weddings, to just about everything outside (and inside) of the box. We've had brides and grooms of all different cultures, sizes and sexualities, we really do celebrate love in all forms.
Hmmm. You've made it this far, hit the contact us page at the top and tell me about you!!! What else could I tell you that you are looking for on the ABOUT page? Well, first off, here is my family Nichole and Nick (I know I know, we did not plan it that way) here are my kids in birth order :) Zoe, Grayson, Renley, Banksy.
We LOVE movies like StarWars, Vampires, Super Heroes, I'm OBSESSED with Third Eye Blind (and try to follow them as often as possible) we nerd out on some boardgames, and we love going to weddings every weekend because it feels like an awesome date with our funnest friends.
We would love the opportunity to hear about your wedding and get to know you!
