First and foremost, I hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy and safe during the current crisis

Russ Levi Photography is still open for business and booking weddings for 2020 and 2021

I believe in maximum flexibility for my Clients

(shoot me an email at to learn more or head to my Contact Page)

There is a lot of uncertainty right now, but your wedding photographer shouldn’t be causing it ๐Ÿ˜€



I’ve been described as a gregarious/affable San Francisco Bay Area Wedding Photographer

I’m a big fan of the outdoors, and indoors, and art, laughter, love, and people

Currently booking weddings for the 2020 and 2021 Wedding Seasons

I live in adorable Petaluma | Sonoma County Wine Country

…and smile the entire day at weddings




I’m a Wedding & Engagement Photographer first and foremost…but I photograph lots of other stuff too!

Weddings, Engagement Sessions, Portraits, Headshots, Family Sessions, Corporate Events, and Fine Art Prints

I recommend taking a look at some of my complete weddings and engagement sessions as well: FULL GALLERIES


The San Francisco Bay Area and San Diego are both my local markets along with pretty much all of California

Places like Wine Country | Mendocino | Lake Tahoe | Monterey | Carmel | Big Sur | Los Angeles

I feel mostย  at home in the redwoods, coastal cliffs, and Northern California Vineyards

But I am willing to go anywhere there’s magical light and happy people


I’ve been photographing weddings since 2009 – and in the 400+ weddings that I’ve photographed I’ve learned a few things


Your experience means everything to me – you will never find me blocking your view or in your face during a key moment

I aim for authenticity in my images and my impact on your wedding day – I want to enhance and never distract

I try to look at everything from your perspective and give you as much flexibility as I can


I believe that the most important photos to you might not be the most epic

And remember … this should be fun ๐Ÿ˜€
