Russell smithe video productions

what drives our desire + shapes what we create 

About  r svp 

when asked about their wedding day, more brides than you'd imagine say:

it was like a beautiful blur...

I wish I could relive it all again.

the decision to capture this moment to savor for a lifetime will fill your hearts with joy.

[ failure to do so can fill you with such regret that it reshapes your career. go ahead, ask me how I know. ]

Russell Smithe married his beautiful high school sweetheart Michelle, in what could only be described as a storybook wedding. The culmination of many months of planning, it was a much anticipated event, a swirling blur of family, friends, love, laughter and 
emotion. A glorious celebration of life, love, commitment + zero regrets...well, almost. The next day, as they basked in the afterglow
 of their wedding day, recounting the myriad of moments that together formed a day that could never be repeated, he realized something. He had a single, but significant regret. He wished that they could experience it all again, relive it whenever they wanted to and share it all with everyone.

Ironically, his venture into filmmaking stemmed from this single regret, the choice to not have his own wedding professionally documented back in 2003. "Not being able to relive my own wedding through video is my single regret of that beautiful day. I'm passionately committed to preventing my clients from feeling that way," he says.

A filmmaker since 2004, Russell Smithe has captured and/or managed over 1,100 weddings in his career and he and his team have won numerous awards such as "The Knot Best of Weddings" and Weddingwire's "Couples Choice" awards for over a decade, and they hold a prestigous 5 star review rating online. He lives by the quote "Choose a job that you love to do and you will not work a day in your life." There is no one more passionate, hard working, organized and dedicated to delivering an unforgetable experience for his clients. He has transformed the wedding video scene in New England and will continue on his quest to offer affordable, high quality filmmaking with a personal and creative touch. Russell's priority while filming weddings is to remain respectfully unobtrusive and not disrupt the organic flow of the day. His style is very unique, as historically other companies would encourage a script they felt should be followed, which would sometimes lead couples to feeling awkward or uncomfortable. "My goal is to capture the day as it unfolds, so that when each client is watching their film 10 years from now, they are experiencing their day as it truly happened." Russell says.
