87 & Smith
Washington D.C. // New York City
My name is Kyle Smith, creator of
87 & Smith, a boutique wedding videography brand dedicated to providing nothing but quality films for couples by having a unique approach that lends itself to being unobtrusive, discreet and professional.
I know how important it is to have a perfect wedding day, not just because I've experienced my own a few years ago but because I've filmed over 150 weddings for couples over the course of the last few years for some of the market's premier planners and alongside the leading photographers creating lasting relationships.
What makes me different than the other guys? I'm 31 years old, married, graduate with an art degree looking to create and film in a way that can't be found often. Heavily influenced by my European friends across the pond, I film, not bound by shotlists or some sort of mechanical approach. Rather I film while constantly looking for unique perspectives, my eyes are an extension of my lens and camera. I find ways to create visual depth within each film. You'll quickly find that my style isn't bright, light and airy, but darker and more cinematic because I understand composition and proper exposure.
87 & Smith was not created as a video factory built to bring in weddings and create mass revenue. I take a limited amount of weddings per year and pour everything I have into them and only deliver them when I feel that I have given it my all. Nothing leaves if I don't believe it's ready. With that being said, I have one team (myself with a second shooter). When you hire 87, you get me, no surprises, no guesses. This ensures quality, consistency, and the experience I want everyone to have from planners, photographers and clients alike.
