Emelie-Russell-Wedding-Videographer-Indianapolis
 

Hi there, I’m Emelie. 

I’m a wedding videographer living and working 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.

"It has been said that next to hunger and thirst, our most basic human need is for storytelling."

- khalil gibran

I specialize in short story wedding films that capture those fleeting moments; the nerves, the excitement, the tears, the joy, and the pure love unfolding on your special day so that you can cherish it time and time again. I take a documentary approach to filming weddings where my goal is to be as unobtrusive as possible. However, my 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 have been photographing since I received my first film camera at 10. I taught myself HTML and created my first website when I was 11 and spent hours hoarding my family’s dial-up connection. I quickly exchanged Microsoft Paint for Adobe Photoshop 7 and I’ve never stopped learning new creative skills. What I don’t know, I figure out.  

I always knew I wanted to do something creative. At 16 went on to study at the Media Program with a focus in Photography at Sinclair in Uddevalla, Sweden followed by a a foreign exchange year that brought me to the United States. It was a year that changed the course of my life. My desire for adventure and thirst for learning led me to DePauw University where I played for the DePauw Women’s Soccer team. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree and double majored in Studio Art (Photography) and Communication in 2012.

Today, I’m an ambitious Creative with a passion for art, design and visual storytelling. I love capturing stories as they unfold in both still and moving images. It's an absolute honor to be given the opportunity to create films and capture memories for others as they experience one of the most important, beautiful and wondrous days of their lives.

 

If my work moves you in any way, I'd love to chat. 

 

Much love,

E
