We are so happy with our decision to go with Russell John Films. These guys seriously were like ghosts at the wedding yet they captured everything. We just got our highlight video and everyone is raving about it. Its not a regular video as they add a cinematic quality to it- it's like watching a movie. I can't wait to see the full video as I already know it's going to be amazing.

Throughout the process they were super easy to work with and so so nice! We hate working with people who are difficult or have attitudes and these guys were just so cool, down to earth, and friendly. Video is one of the most important aspects of the wedding because you can relive your most special day. I can go on and on about how happy we are with RJ Films, seriously nothing negative to say.

THANK YOU GUYS for doing amazing work and being so great to work with.

Russell John films truly captured the essence of our special day! I love our wedding video, and our family and friends continue to talk about it and will watch it over and over. (That's a pretty good sign of a spectacular wedding video!)

Our destination wedding in Turks and Caicos made it difficult to find a team that would be willing to travel so far (from southern California), fit in our budget, but most importantly, create spectacular, non-cheesy wedding videos. (Sorry ladies, but no one likes a cheesy video!)

They eloquently told a story about who we are and how we met, all the while fitting in with our style and musical taste making it fun and entertaining to watch.

Russell and his team were very accommodating with the editing, giving us an end project that was completely tailored to our liking.

This by far, was the BEST money spent on our wedding! We get to enjoy our wedding day over and over, and unlike flowers, these memories will never fade or wilt.

Russel John Films was fantastic. They had all the wedding guests crying with just the highlights video, and we haven't even watched the full version! They were on time, professional, respectful, and made you feel feel comfortable. Most importantly, they worked great with the photographer and other vendors which is important. Russel John Films has a unique talent for capturing what makes your wedding special and portraying that. Somehow they just know what you want, and you will have a beautiful video forever!

I am SO glad that I chose to select Russell John Films for our videographer. I did not have the biggest budget for spend on a videographer and ended up select the smallest package. I am completely blown away by how amazing and wonderful the video is. Every time we watch the video it brings us back to our wedding day and all the emotions we were feeling. These people are truly talented and are amazing people to work with. Definitely recommend this company!!

Russell John Films was our videographer for our wedding and they were amazing! Our highlight film and feature film were so incredible. Russ was very laid back and very easy to work with. They were very fast in getting our videos back to us; we got them much faster than we got any of our pictures from our photographer. We could not have been happier with our choice of videographer and highly recommend them!

Watching their videos online of people I do not even know makes me tear up. I truly love these guys and so does my husband. From the moment we walked in their office, we were beyond excited to work with them. We hadn't even signed papers yet, but Russell and Brandon did such a phenomenal job of walking us through different contracts and even helping us decide on one. They are very professional and really easy to get along with. On the wedding day, they arrived on time, made everything feel very natural and at ease. I recommend them to anyone and everyone. Having them really made the wedding great. I cannot wait to see what they put together.

My wife and I hired Russell to shoot our wedding last November and we have to say, hands down, that is the best move we made. He not only arrived on time, but he was extremely professional in the way he shot the footage. This is not the type of video that your amateur video pro uncle shoots. Russell shoots a full-on movie. We were incredible happy with our video, especially the cinematic trailer that he does that is like a short video highlighting the wedding. Honestly, it makes me tear up everytime. Its that good. I would highly recommend RJ films. It's not the cheapest, but who wants the cheapest anyway. You get what you pay for, only with these guys, I honestly got much more than I thought we would. Very happy.

We absolutely loved Russell John Films! We were dead set on having a videographer, but many of the other companies we had seen were way out of our budget (cue sad trombone) Russell was recommended by our wedding coordinator and we were blown away by his portfolio and his affordable packages. We had our initial meeting over the phone and then worked over email with the team to make all of our arrangements. When the big day came Russell and his team blended in (many people didn't even know they were there!) and captured our day beautifully. Our family loved the cinematic trailer and couldn't wait for the feature film. We made some minor adjustments to the preview the team of the feature and they were really response and quick to make the changes. We couldn't be happier with the service they provided and would totally recommend them to any San Diego brides and grooms.

It has been almost 4 months since our wedding and we are still waiting to get the final video. But based on rough-copy they sent 2 months ago, the quality is good.

Just very disappointed that they have not stuck to getting us things in a timely manner.
