87 and Smith is a wedding videography business based in Washington DC. This videography company is dedicated to capturing weddings with care and professionalism. Their style is to be unobtrusive, to focus on videography, allowing you to focus on your special day. They are a wedding videographer for couples who don't want a wedding videographer, because they don't associate themselves with the videographers that run around, get in your guests way, becoming an eye sore and stick out like a sore thumb.
87's reviews speak for themselves- many have described the process of working with Kyle "too easy compared to other vendors" "Kyle is a magician" and "The best decision from my entire wedding"
The approach that 87 and Smith has is simple and refined. In an industry that obsesses over the latest gear, the latest technology and fancy unneccesary tools, Kyle relies on what he knows best. Capturing the natural moments as they are happening, nothing in the slightest scripted or directed. Authenticity is Kyle's aim and you can see that in every single one of his films. The wedding is about the couple, not the photographer and not the filmmaker. It's unnatural to ask the couple to perform for the camera, there is enough real action going on that 87 doesn't need to fake anything, it's a wedding after all and not a movie, but after watching his films you might think it actually is a movie because they're unlike a lot of other "wedding videos" you see.

Kyle and his team are the best of the best. From the very beginning, Kyle took the time to truly understand our vision, not only for the video or the wedding, but our vision for the rest of our lives. He is a true professional, and I barely noticed he was there on the day, but he managed to capture every one of our special moments to created the most breathtaking video that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. The film was an expression of who we are as a couple and as individuals. I can't recommend 87&Smith more highly.Sent on 01/13/2020

Kyle blew my mind with our wedding video. End of story. He managed to make me laugh and cry in a matter of six minutes with his ability to tug at your heart strings while simultaneously bringing a smile to your face. He completely surpassed any expectation I had (and let me tell you, I was superrrr picky when it came to a videographer). I didn’t want any of this cheesy zoom in, zoom out stuff that I kept seeing. If you are in the market for someone to capture your special event, I beg you not to look any further. It was an absolute delight to work with someone so talented and I will continue to break out my video to random strangers for at least 5 years from now. It’s that beautiful! Thank you, Kyle, from all of us!!Sent on 12/30/2019

So worth it!
I was on the fence about hiring a wedding videographer (I thought pictures would be enough), but after seeing the video that Kyle put together, I can honestly say that hiring him was the best wedding decision that my husband and I made! Kyle captured so many small, intimate moments and wove them together so beautifully. He truly is an artist and the video he created is something that I will treasure forever. I am so grateful to him for perfectly capturing the best day of my life.Sent on 11/15/2019
To anyone on the fence about hiring a wedding videographer, my best advice is to do it, and better yet, to hire Kyle! I promise it will be worth it.
