I heard so many great reviews about Rush photography and video while planning my wedding. My first thought? Nothing can be so great. I have had my fair share of dissapointment while wedding planning. I have to say Rush and his team saw to it that everything I had dreamed of... Read More turned into reality. Me and my husband are a fun couple and we really wanted that to be a prominent feature in our wedding. We kept thinking of different ways to entertain our guests during dinner. Rush helped turn our vision into reality by creating a skit that perfectly depicted who we are together . We loved it and so did our guests. We just received our photo book. We knew we would love the photos. We didn't know that our expectations would be completely exceeded. I highly recommend Rush and his team for any couple that is looking for a very creative and professional team.

We had a great time working with Rush Photography and Video Productions for our wedding. Specifically Jesus, David, Lisa & Anthony. They were all fantastic to work with.

Disclaimer: I had a long, well thought out, eloquent review written out and then my computer decided to shut down on me. This is my attempt at recreating the review: I first met Rush, and got to see his work product, at a networking event. I knew that my fiancee and I would... Read More be looking for a videographer soon, so I kept Rush in the back of my mind. After a few months, my fiancee and I sat down with Rush and were impressed with Rush's understanding of how we wanted our wedding to be taped. We knew at that moment that Rush would be our best option, and after seeing his prices, we found ourselves believing that Rush Photography and Video Productions would be our best bet. We then decided that we wanted to see what his photography options were, even though we were working with the photographer who photographed our engagement. After seeing his photography and videography packages, we realized that going with Rush for videography and photography would allow us to capture our wedding exactly as we had hoped. Rush also gave us a complimentary engagement session as part of the package. The photographer who conducted our engagement session was easy to work with, funny, and made us feel comfortable. The photos also came out beautifully. It reaffirmed our decision to go with Rush for both our video and photo and we will recommend Rush Photography and Video Productions to anyone.

Rush Photo & Video captured our wedding on September 23, 2017 and our pictures were amazing! When I received our photos, I had tears in my eyes because of the joy I felt from viewing our photos.

I knew from our first meeting that we were going to contract Rush Productions. Also, the packages were very affordable and included the rights to our pictures, which was very important to us. After reviewing the photo galleries of several photographers, we decided on Sandro as our main photographer. We were so pleased with his style of shooting, expertise, creativity, and personality. Our engagement photos were so unique, and everyone that views them has absolutely blown away. Our wedding photos are mind-blowing and look like a high-end magazine photoshoot. I couldn't have been happier with the images taken at the Langham as well as our church. Rush and his team continue to be accommodating as we work through our photo selections and the editing of our video. Thank you Rush, Sandro and the Rush team for making this experience fantastic.

I wanted the best photographer & videographer I could find. I didnt know where to start until I saw my coworkers wedding video. The video is so professional, the clarity , music and the moments they captured are amazing. I immediately said I want Rush Photography. I called Rush... Read More 7 months prior to my wedding and submitted my contract. Rush informed me that he would get back to me closer to wedding date with details. Of course I panicked and called him like a 3 weeks before the wedding . Rush was very patient with bridezilla and explained to me that he would call me the week of the wedding. As he promised he called me with details, he even gave me ideas. The photographer came to hotel and took pictures/video as I was getting my makeup done. They followed me to the venue and took more pictures/videos as I was getting dressed. They made me feel super special on my wedding day. They worked non stop capturing every moment. When I got my photos I couldn’t believe the moments they captured. I an very pleased with the service I received, it was well worth the money.

Highly recommend! I looked all over for a photographer that was within our budget, but didn't skimp on quality, and finally found it with Rush! They were so easy to work with, and everything went according to plan. There were a few traditional pictures that we didn't get...

We got some amazing shots and were very happy. Also, our pictures were ready much earlier than we expected. Overall - very happy!
