Russell John Films
With our love for capturing each couple’s unique story and telling it through stunning imagery, Russell John Films specializes in creating high-end cinematic wedding films. We push the limit of our craft, creating not just a wedding video, but a work of art. Bucking the traditional chronological progression of a wedding, Russell John Films goes beyond just documenting your day and creates a moving piece of art that’s compelling, fun, and timeless. Our award-winning team incorporates dynamic images, cutting-edge editing techniques, and dramatic music. We realize couples want to be moved emotionally when they see their wedding film; thus our signature approach of combining film, documentary, and music video styles. Every film we create is unique and carries a plot: the story of each couple and their special day.
