Hello! I am so glad you're here! My name is Katie Dommel, and I am a Lake Chelan Wedding Videographer, Filmmaker, and Storyteller. I am adventurous and laid back and it is my passion to create unique and riveting wedding films.
Every wedding is a new possibility. What does yours hold?
WHAT SETS EVERGREEN FILMS APART?
I spend time before each wedding getting to know you so that I know exactly how to craft a film that focuses on depth and your history. I believe that the most important part of your day is YOUR STORY.
I am a storyteller and I want you to have a wedding film that lasts generations and is a treasure for years to come.
I am looking for couples who value their story. Who want a powerful film that captures their hearts. I want to work with couples who are up for adventure...who will sneak out at the reception and get some portrait shots in that beautiful, golden, sunset light and who will sit down with me and my team and let us ask questions, let us record you reading letters to each other or reading your vows. I want to climb mountains with you, cross ten holes at the golf course for the best light, and watch for the details that others miss so your day is as perfect as it can possibly be.
My couples are usually people who are up for being vulnerable and connecting in order to create something unique and personal.
LET'S GET TECHNICAL...
Gear We Use

It's important to us to capture things in a genuine manner. We want to catch real emotions and events as they happen. While we do some prompted posing during portraits, the rest is more documentary style. We shoot with more than one videographer at every wedding with over 3 hours of coverage.
When I dive into the editing process, I take time to go through the footage piece by piece, selecting the best clips from your day. I also pay attention to what the storyline is...what is important to you both? That's what I want to portray in your film. This is about a specific and momentous slice of your history, and you can never get it back. Being able to watch your film over the course of your marriage will bring back memories and emotions from the day!
