Russell Smithe was SUCH an amazing videographer who helped to make our wedding day absolutely perfect! Once you start planning with Russell, you quickly pick up on both his passion for his craft and his knowledge of the wedding industry. You also realize very early on how much he prides himself on the unobtrusive quality of his work – and he truly lives up to his word! He captured every moment without me ever stopping to realize he was taping! Your wedding day has many private, personal, and sentimental moments and you want these captured without feeling as though a stranger is over your shoulder. Russell was able to document all these precious memories for me and Paul without ever being noticed! He was always kind, offered suggestions based off his deep knowledge of the profession, and attentive to detail and responsiveness. You will not be disappointed with this choice! -Amanda 11/2015
