Russ Levi was an amazing professional from start to finish. My wife and I were very particular about our wedding photographer, and we didn't want your typical, boring wedding photos. As soon as we saw Russ' work we were very impressed. His ph...
otos are very journalistic, cinematic, just straight up money. I thought he did major touch ups, but his photos just naturally come out amazing.
We wanted to jump on a call with Russ to get to know him and his artistic vision before we moved forward. It was his welcoming spirit, professionalism, and chill personality that sealed the deal. We knew he would be easy to work with, not anal, and judging by his work, he is a true artist.
When the day of the wedding came, we had to make a few adjustments, changing the location etc etc, but Russ was totally cool about it. Through out the whole day of the wedding, Russ and his assistant were super cool yet professional. I, myself have been a groomsman for several weddings, but the photographers were never as personal and never guided our stance, formation, poses as well as Russ did. He made sure that every single person in the photo was placed perfectly and was super patient with everyone. We all know it's difficult to get family members together, but he was super patient with everyone.
One thing my wife and I really appreciated was the fact that Russ stayed for the whole night of the wedding. I've never seen a photographer really commit and take pictures for the whole night, but he stayed from start to finish. I appreciated that he was able to take pictures for all of my friends who wanted a photo and was readily available when we wanted a photo.
Another memorable experience was when it was slightly raining outside, but Russ was willing to work in the rain to take an amazing shot for us.
Russ was super easy to work with, very professional and chill. He told us if we were ever in the city to call him out for drinks. How personable is that? He's really building relationships with his clients, not just a portfolio! I would recommend him to anyone. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Everyone came up to me and told me how awesome my photographer was.
