Welcome to Patrick Nied Photography!
I am a Wedding and Portrait Photographer located in Seattle. Husband to a beautiful wife, and father to the world's cutest two boys. I've lived in Seattle for the past 10 years and love everything about this area. If we're not strolling around Greenlake or enjoying the sunset at Golden Gardens, we're probably hunkered down at our favorite Fremont Coffee shop. I love being a Wedding photographer, especially in the amazing scenery we have at our fingertips here in Seattle. Whether you're planning for rustic chic at a Woodinville winery, contemporary urban on a downtown sky rise rooftop, or DIY in the Cascades, let me document this once in a lifetime occasion for you and your family! - Patrick

Delille Cellars Wedding | Matt and Maddie | Seattle Wedding Photographer
Aug 18th, 2017
The two first met when Maddie applied for a hostessing position at Sugar Factory Restaurant in Town Square, Las Vegas in the spring on 2014. Maddie went into her interview and waited at the bar to meet with the manager who was running over an hour late. While Maddie was waiting for her interview, the bartender that day made sure to keep her water glass filled. That bartender was none other than Matt. Soon enough the two became coworkers and shared the same group of friends at the restaurant. In celebration of a coworkers birthday, everyone went out for drinks and dancing. One of Maddie's favorite things to do is dancing but while she was out, she noticed no one else from the group would dance. Matt walked up to the table they were at after getting drinks for everyone and started dancing with Maddie right away. He had the biggest smile, loved to laugh and have a good time. The rest of the night was filled with dancing for the two of them. After Maddie's busy summer filled with college graduation, music festivals, nights out on the town and the two weeks they spend apart because of her trip to New York to visit family, Matt and Maddie became official. It all happened when Matt greeted her at the airport with flowers and said that two weeks was just too long to be away from her and that very same night, he asked her to be his girlfriend.
Maddie found inspiration for her wedding from a love of nature and their love for wine! "I've always known from the time I was a little girl that I wanted to get married outdoors. I wanted to be surrounded by natural beauty. When we looked at the chateau at DeLille Cellars, we feel in love with it! My favorite color has always been red. And with our love for wine, I knew I wanted to incorporate different shades of red into the natural greens and beiges, in fact, different shades of wine colors (perfect for a winery wedding)!" Maddie also have a bit of a bohemian soul, and made sure that there were elements that reflected that, such asa wild bouquet and greenery crowns. The couple wanted the whole wedding to feel natural and fun, while keeping the decor simple to highlight the beauty of the venue.
