Reflecting back on our experiences w/ Russell, we would unequivocally rate him 10/10 stars (if we could)! From the moment we met him, we immediately knew that we wanted to work with him. He came to our meeting SO ENTHUSIASTIC and SO EXCITED to show us his beautiful work. Moreover, he was so happy/glad to meet us and get to know us, a rarity these days.
Russell has a contagious enthusiasm about him. He really does! The love of his craft and the pride he takes in his work was readily apparent from our first meeting. At that meeting, he showed us the intricacies of his video style in a demo, displaying with gorgeous detail his approach to capturing an event. The ‘flow’ of the video was amazing and had my husband and I nodding in approval! (ps…The highlight video is a MUST have ). We were drained going into the meeting and refreshed coming out of it. As we left we thought to ourselves, “..this is gonna be good!”… and it was!
Russell puts his whole life into his work. There is no substitute for experience, and Russell has plenty of it! In reviewing our own video – this much was clear. He was able to capture all the minute details of our wedding while and make us feel SO SPECIAL at the same time. From the beads on my dress, to the chocolate fountain, to the cake, to the venue – he caught it all. And plenty of dancing as well. The sound effects were outstanding and we were able to clearly hear our vows, the priest’s sermon during the Mass, and especially the speeches at the reception!
THANK YOU, RUSSELL!!!
This is by far the best review Ive ever received, thank you so much Kaitlyn & AJ! - Russell Smithe
