RF Films operates out of Long Island, New York, but has also worked on weddings all over the Tri-State area. They can even cover destination events. Despite having a successful career as a television producer, he decided to put the hectic pace of television aside and utilize his skills and expertise in a more personal and intimate setting. He wanted to capture the events and ceremonies of people’s lives and turn them into something they can truly treasure. This is why he launched RF Films and Photography. His goal is to bring his own unique style and background to capture your precious memories.
We weren’t originally going to have a videographer, but since we decided to get married during the COVID-19 pandemic we thought it would be a good addition. Russel not only took incredible video of our intimate event, but he also coordinated our zoom event so people could view it live from the safety of their home.
Russell was awesome! He captured some really special moments for my grandmothers 95th birthday that we would have never been able to do with just our phones! He made the scheduling process so easy and I knew I could trust him even without never meeting him before. He is super friendly and personable and although I don't live in New York, my family can't wait to use him again for upcoming events! Thank you so much for making my grandmothers 95th birthday a memorable one!
RF Films were incredible to work with. They were prompt, helpful and the final product was absolutely phenomenal. I couldn't have asked for better. They really went above and beyond for us.
First off, I want to express how incredibly amazing Russ and his team are. They filmed our special day in the most beautiful way and captured every single detail from start to finish. There is ABSOLUTELY no one I would have rather had capture our day than R.F. Films and I was picky when it came to choosing a videographer to say the least! Also, Russ was with us every step of the way and truly saw our vision. He regularly checked up on my husband and I and helped us feel at ease with not only his talent, but also with the entire wedding process as a whole. The day of the wedding he kept us calm and in the best of spirits. Russ and his team went above and beyond to get the best shots and made us feel so comfortable. In all, Russ is more than just a videographer, he is amazing at what he does and truly cares about the couples he works with and it shows it his work. I promise you won't be disappointed hiring him for your special day! 💕
Russ and his team were beyond excellent. From start to finish they were there to answer all our questions. They called us before our engagement shoot and our wedding day to ask us if we had any ideas of what type of pictures we wanted to take. They were there to walk us through every step of our wedding day:)
