Meet The Filmmaker
Russell Smithe has been a filmmaker since 2004 and has captured and/or managed over 1,100 weddings in his career. Growing up in New England, Russell is a lover of family, nature, good food and Boston sports. He is happily married to his high school sweetheart Michelle and they have a teenaged daughter named Talia.
Ironically, his venture into filmmaking stemmed from not having his own wedding professionally documented back in 2003. “Not being able to re-live my own wedding through video is my single greatest regret from that day. I’m on a mission to prevent my clients from feeling that same way,” says Russell.
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.
Russell and his team have won numerous awards such as “The Knot Best of Weddings” and Weddingwire’s “Couples Choice” award for 13 straight years, and they hold a prestigous 5 star review rating online.
Russell 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.
Dane was the best DJ I could have asked for. He was extremely professional, truly a pleasure to work with. I can say that I had not a single doubt about Dane‘s ability to make our wedding day a success.
Thank you for making our wedding the most special day. You are a true talent and you’ll have a special place in our hearts !
