One might rightfully be suspicious of a photographer selecting which reviews to display on their website (I have some snippets below anyway) so I’ve included here a couple of sites where clients have chosen to review me:




Russell was the easiest and best decision we made during the wedding planning! His work is absolute perfection. We couldn't be happier with our photos. Russ is professional, extremely easy to work with, funny and just amazing. We didn't have a vision for our engagement shoot so we let Russ pick the location, best decision! He gave us outdoorsy, casual, fun and glamour all in a few hours. Annnnnd the wedding photos! I didn't get off the couch for hours because I had to look through the amazingness over and over and over and over again! So if you aren't catching my drift... stop your photographer search now because no one is better! Russell you are effortlessly talented. The Beyonce of photographers!


Russ was one of our favorite parts of our day. Yes, Russ is amazing. Look at his photos. He's so easy to work with, super organized, responsive, funny, and calm. He got our required family and group photos with ease and an ability to direct large groups of people kindly and quickly so we could get back to enjoying time together. He has created treasures for us, for our families, and friends. We look at his photos and are instantly transported back into that specific moment, with all the emotion, love, joy, and tears. I have never felt my heart fill, overflow, and expand with joy and love as I did on that day. Each photo ignites that feeling every time. Thank you.


We used Russ Levi Photography for both an engagement shoot and our wedding day and we can't say enough wonderful things about working with him! He has a very unique, editorial style that sets him apart and well above most wedding photographers. His photos are both beautiful and striking; they capture the moment perfectly and look like they belong on magazine covers. Russ is amicable and kind, so rapport develops almost instantaneously - something very important for someone who will be right there capturing your most intimate moments. He effectively provides polite feedback and guidance to get his subjects situated for the perfect shot.


Talented. Hard-working. Enthusiastic. Professional. I could continue with a long list describing Russell and his wondrous ways; simply put, he is, as someone else mentioned here, as good as it gets. My husband and I were blessed to have him photograph our wedding in the Eastern Sierras (and our engagement photos), and have been absolutely blown away with not only the finished product (i.e. AMAZING PHOTOS!) but his demeanor throughout the weekend. Russell has the unique ability to have a clear vision of what he wants while being flexible enough to go with the flow and read the situation. Really easy to work with throughout the whole process, from start to finish. Looking through the photos, again and again, we have found ourselves saying, "wow, he captured (fill in name)'s essence perfectly!"
