Arielle + Zak - Teaser.00_00_56_00.Still002.jpg

I specialize in short story films that capture those fleeting moments; the nerves, the excitement, the happy tears, the joy, and the pure love unfolding on one of the most special days of your life. My style is clean and timeless but not boring. I focus on wedding films for couples who desire more than a simple document of their day or a music montage. I focus on capturing high quality audio that drives the story of your film and using editing techniques and footage to make you to feel like you are right there, re-living those moments. And I want to you have that experience again and again, for years to come.

Emelie Russell Wedding Videographer Hello

I’m a wedding videographer based in Indianapolis, Indiana.


I grew up in a small town on the west coast of Sweden and while my heart will always long for the ocean breeze, I have made Indiana my home together with my husband, Ryan, and our two boys, Felix & Axel.

I take a documentary approach to filming weddings where my goal is to be as unobtrusive as possible. However, my film and editing style is cinematic, focusing on capturing the story of your day and you as a couple. I don't come with a large film crew but I do come with a huge heart and passion for visual storytelling and I deliver high quality full HD videos with professional sound and editing.

“I am that typical girl that has been planning her wedding since she was young! When it was finally time, the first vendors I booked (besides venue) was my photographer and videographer. I feel these are by far the best & most important investment and knew without a doubt I would want both to capture such a monumental moment of my life. Finding Emelie was pure accident as I was scrolling through social media! Her work blew me away and I knew she would be the best person to capture my wedding day!

Working with Emelie was such a breeze as she stayed connected with me throughout my wedding process, she answered all my questions within a timely manner and was willing to work with me on different things. Wedding day came and went and it was perfect! FACT: I cried more the day after than I did the day of the wedding and a large part was due the the wedding trailer we received 24 hours after our big day! I was able to witness first hand how much creativity, thought and effort went into her work!

The videos only got better and better after the trailer! I am now able to see moments that I was not present for or moments I can’t remember! It’s a blessing to relive a moment in time that is easily considered the BEST day of my life! These videos are things I will cherish for the rest of my life and I owe it all to Emelie and her team! I will always recommend her, because I hole heartedly believe she loves what she does and it shows!

I look forward to the opportunity to work with her again!!” - McKenzie


“First of all, we can not say enough good things about working with Emelie as our videographer. She is the sweetest, kindest soul and really made our wedding experience an forgettable one, truly. My husband and I had initially decided against getting a videographer, but 2 weeks before our wedding we changed our mind and reached out to Emelie. Her style, artistry, documenting, etc. was five-star and we will be forever grateful for the moments she captured from the speeches, vows, etc. to the music, moments and video all strung together so perfectly, it embodies every emotion we want to remember of our wedding day so beautifully and perfectly and I could not be more grateful! This video is something we will treasure forever and watch every year. The video she created was above and beyond anything I dreamed up and for that we are forever grateful. Would recommend her to anyone and everyone getting married!! You will not regret it, she is amazing and so worth it.” - Mallory & Brad
