What if I don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera?


I live for genuine moments! I want to capture you being you and I do so by letting your day unfold as is while gently guiding you if you need me. I don’t pose or style you but I also know that not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera. Any suggestion I give is always with the intention to create a space for you to be yourself so that I can capture honest moments. I love epic and beautiful as much as the next person but I balance gorgeous imagery with the raw and real, the funny and the goofy. I want your film to be genuine to the two of you. Any instruction given will be taken in light of being authentic, not posed. I also try to be as unobtrusive as possible and not a distraction to you or your guests so that you can enjoy your day! You will be so busy soaking in all that joy and love that you won’t even notice the camera. Promise.

Do we really need a wedding video?


I’m incredibly passionate about having a wedding film. Obviously, I’m a little bit biased but I really couldn’t imagine not having the voices of my loved ones captured. With photographs, toasts are forgotten and grandma’s laughter fades. The sound of your dad’s voice cracking when he speaks about you as a child or your partner’s reaction when they see you for the first time are all things that can’t be fully captured in photos. Imagine being able to just press play and be taken right back to that moment and being able to truly see, hear and feel the emotion. And beyond that, your wedding film will serve as your legacy for years and decades to come. Beyond your marriage, which is the MOST important part of your wedding day, your video is one of the only things that will actually increase in value over time.

We don’t need a full day of coverage. Can you just record the ceremony?


My base package starts at 5 hours because that’s what I find is required to create a wedding film like what you can find in my portfolio. I do not currently offer ceremony only coverage.

Do you offer photography?


I do not currently offer wedding photography but I’m happy to guide you in the direction of some amazing photographer to capture your day!

Do you travel?


Yes! I love to travel. All custom quotes include travel fees so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Wherever your love takes you, I’m here for it!

Emelie was randomly recommended to us by a friend and we are SO thankful we found her! Every one of her videos feels unique and special and we LOVE ours. She truly told the story of us and captured all the details of our wedding day. She is incredibly talented and amazing to work with. This was 100% money well spent and I would HIGHLY recommend Emelie to anyone who is on the fence about a wedding videographer. You will not regret it!

She truly told the story of us



Re-watching our wedding video today on our first anniversary just let us relive the best and most special day of our lives. We knew instantly when finding Emelie online that we wanted her to capture our day. Her videos just have a way telling a story in the most magical way. And Emelie was so amazing to work with! She was so accommodating to our needs and wants when it came to meetings, details, and what we wanted our video to be. She far exceeded any and all of our expectations. Emelie Russell is THE videographer to hire for your day to keep your memories alive and cherished. 

Emelie was so amazing to work with!

After searching for videographers for weeks, my wife found Emelie and we both instantly loved the creativity and storytelling in her videos. Once we reached out to her and met for the first time, we knew we made the right decision. Her attention to detail is amazing and every time we watch our video we feel like we get to relive the experience. Hiring Emelie proved to be a wonderful decision not only because the result was so amazing, but she made us feel completely at ease throughout the whole process. She really got to know us as a couple and in doing so, was able to tell our story so much better than we ever hoped. We can't recommend her enough! If you're looking for a videographer, Emelie is the best!

She understood us and who we are as a couple, she made us a video that felt true to us and our style. She has such a relaxed personality that one moment she can be in the background capturing a memory so perfectly, and the next shes front and center giving direction. She truly does put her heart and soul into making a quality video. We cannot recommend her enough, she was one of the easiest and best decisions for our wedding. She captured our day so perfectly, and each time we rewatch our video we are taken back to that wonderful day, that in the end goes way to fast. So having a memory to cherish and relive is such a precious gift she gave us. 

Easiest and Best decision for our wedding
