We work by a motto of excellence.
Seattle Videography was started by a group of film makers in 2005, about the same time YouTube.com redefined how people interact with video. Our mission as film makers and videographers is to empower individuals and business by providing services and expertise in the new era of video based media.
Our core values are to provide world class service to our clients and to empower them to better reach their audience through their media productions. We recognize the value of this in the emerging world of digital sharing and media interaction. We continually educate ourselves emerging trends in media and communication to help secure the best outcomes for our video products. We see video as a means to communicate, educate, and inspire in a constantly changing media landscape. Our values and principles are often vindicated with feedback we receive from our amazing clients.
Be a simple on camera interview, to a feature length production, to covering a beautiful wedding or event, our values are the cornerstones of how we do business.

Rewind 20 years and you would find Aaron producing his first projects on his parent's VHS camcorder with elementary school friends - a hobby that would turn into a passion throughout his education creating everything from skateboard videos to television work and movies.
Still-captures simultaneously became front and center when he received his first paid job as a photographer for the local newspaper while a freshman in high school. Earning his degree in visual communications and psychology in Portland, his senior thesis project, a documentary on the déjà vu phenomenon, was received with high regard from faculty and colleagues which would later prove to be a heavy influence on the battle between art & science and the ultimate direction of his future.
Jump to modern times to find Aaron as owner of a successful video production company (Snappy Cowboys Productions) with portfolio pieces spanning several years servicing some of the largest name brands and musical artists in the world. With extensive experience producing commercial work and as director of photography on feature films, concerts and documentaries, Aaron's work began to turn heads after relocating to Seattle from Portland, where he emerged in the film culture and quickly found himself in high demand for music videos, commercials, weddings, films and live event videography and photography.
