The Wedding Memories

Reflecting on all of my favorite wedding memories, I cannot choose just one. Instead, I will leave you with some wise words.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, so you want to make sure it's exciting and memorable.

Here are a few tips for making your wedding day even more exciting:

  • Forget about the timelines. The day will go by quickly, so don't stress about sticking to a rigid schedule. If you want to take a few extra minutes to soak up the atmosphere or have a longer dance with your dad, go for it! You'll never get this day back, so make the most of it.
  • Don't worry about the vendors. They're professionals and they know what they're doing. If something goes wrong, they'll be able to handle it. So relax and enjoy the show!
  • Let go of the stress. It's normal to feel a little bit stressed on your wedding day, but don't let it consume you. Take a few deep breaths and remind yourself that this is a day to celebrate your love. You're about to marry the person of your dreams, so there's no reason to be stressed!
  • Have fun! This is your day, so make sure you enjoy it. Dance, laugh, and celebrate with the people you love. This is your chance to let loose and have some fun, so don't hold back!

And one last piece of advice:

Don't be afraid to get a little dirty. Jump in the pool, the ocean, or even the bathtub. Your wedding dress or suit will be cleaned up afterwards, and you'll have some great memories to look back on.

Specialization

Family and friends are what you value most and you want your wedding photos to capture how much you love them. From the spontaneous joy you feel when you first see a loved one face, to the moments of anticipation, laughter, and connection you’ll share on your wedding day, it’s the way you feel about one another that drives me to focus on the moments that matter, and to create stunning portraits and video that honor your relationships.

There just aren't enough words to possibly describe how amazing RF Film is. As most couples, we came into this experience with very little knowledge on what planning a wedding entailed. However working with RF film we were able to navigate this very detailed event. This was far and away the best experience we have had with photographers to date. Please do yourself a favor and do not pass up the chance to work with this team!

Russ and his crew are absolutely amazing at what they do! He came highly recommended after doing many weddings for family and friends. Throughout the entire process he was amazing and really took the time to understand what we wanted! We used him for photography as well as videography and couldn’t have been happier in doing so. Our trailer, video and photos all came out amazing! 10/10 job!! Would highly recommend again!

Russ and his crew did the video for my wedding. They were a pleasure to work with and captured the entire day beautifully.

They captured every moment I had asked for and more, If you hire RLF Films and Photos it's the best decision you'll make, you won't be disappointed.

RF Films did a great job without our wedding photos and video. Russell and this team were professional, talented, punctual, and made working with them fun!! Russell was always available and generous in sharing tips to ensure the day was smooth and successful! We could not be more pleased with our experience.

Alexandra M.

RF did an amazing job and we are extremely happy we chose them for our wedding! We decided to conduct 2 ceremonies back to back, at 2 different churches, before the reception, and RF was able to capture everything! They not only coordinated the photography and videography, but also helped keep the day moving according to schedule. Thank you for everything!

Yannis S.

Working with Russell and his team for my wedding was amazing. From the start Russell was easy to contact and always made time for a phone call to answer all my questions. The day of went perfect. They were on time and ready to go. My photos and video came out beautiful and I couldn't be happier!

Dana A.

I never write reviews for anything but for RF Films I felt I had to share what a wonderful experience we had. We used RF Films for photo and video for our wedding and I cannot say enough great things about Russell and his team. 

Weeks leading up to our wedding, Russell and his team were very organized and attentive in making sure we had a schedule in place for the day of and a list of photos that we wanted captured. Russell even double checked the schedule with me just in case anything changed with hair and makeup or our venue.

Fast forward to our wedding day, the team arrived on time and if not a bit earlier than scheduled. Russell and his team were helping us the whole time, he even ran to grab my lipstick for me when I needed to reapply. The additional photographer and videographer were so friendly and professional they knew how to liven up the room and get the mood going for photos. The team was keeping track of the time and ensured we stayed on schedule.

It makes it that much more comforting  when you know you have great people working with you, and I can honestly say RF Films were amazing and knocked it out of the park. They even had such a quick turnaround for our wedding photos and trailer video. The quality of the photos and our trailer video were breathtaking and the way they captured the whole day will make it truly unforgettable. You must book with RF films for your wedding for photo and video. 

Alexa T.

I am so thankful I found RF Films because they truly alleviated a lot stress. Hire them you will not regret it!!!!
