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!

Russell and his team are just so talented and super nice! I planned my wedding date around them because I wanted to have them at my wedding so badly. I'm happy to say that they did not disappoint me at all. They were by far my favorite vendor.... The cinematic highlights trailer has been just so beautiful and and I can't wait to see the full video. You can't go wrong with Russell and his team!!!!

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.

Russell was the perfect choice for videography for our wedding. From our first meeting with him, we knew he would do a fantastic job capturing the special moments of our big day. He worked with us in creating a custom package that suited our needs and budget. His professionalism and dedication to his craft are obvious, and you can tell that he actually cares about the people he works with. Although we thoroughly enjoy his company, we could barely tell he was even at the wedding! He did a great job of staying behind the scenes, while getting all the necessary shots. Our photographers also commented on how easy he was to work with and are now referring him to their clients. When we actually received the finished product, we were blown away! Every time I watch it, I am in tears (in a good way) within the first five minutes. We had selected some songs for him to use, and he also suggested some that definitely made the film better. From pre-wedding coordination, to the event, to the video editing, Russell did a fantastic job. Five stars all the way! To Russell, all I have to say is thank you, thank you, thank you!
