Wedding CinematographyFrom stories with intent to fly-on-the-wall documentary style, we've got you covered.
All that preparation set us up for success as the event unfolded like clockwork. Brittany and the Grand Wailea wedding team really made everything run very smoothly, which set us up for success and contributed to the making of this film.
Victor wanted his Kaanapali wedding at the Hyatt to be told in a meaningful and bespoke way for himself and Uyen. They’ve been on quite the journey the last 10 years, attracted to one another, but not having the freedom to act out on it. The charge, the respect, the love, the trust they place into one another is some of the deepest we’ve seen in a long long time.
When we get to shoot a proposal in Hawaii and full wedding at the couple’s home, we don’t hesitate. It is a wonderful opportunity to see people in their own element as opposed to just at a destination wedding location like Hawaii.
The way this couple met is not something I encounter much anymore in this day and age of internet and dating apps. Without giving too much away, let’s just say that Konnie knows what she wants and doesn’t mess around. This film was delivered in stunning 4K!
Giada and Matteo were looking for a cinematic crew who showed a sensibility toward sculpting a movie of their love that was probably going to be a huge departure from other productions that crew has ever done.
Jenny said unequivocally: I chose you guys, because you were the only ones who break the mold of the standard wedding videos out there. What do you do to make them so cinematic and such an emotional roller coaster?
I felt a kindred spirit to Miro & felt a duty to guide him through his Maui marriage proposal to Joanna & get to that YES. The films we created are magic.
The Maui Beach Elopement option was the perfect fit for Ashlee and Brad. The cinematographer was welcomed into Ashlee’s room at the Hyatt in Kaanapali, where they shot the bridal prep. Then they headed off to the enchanted Honolua Forest, and finished off the day with a ceremony at Ironwoods beach.
Originally Kirstie and Ken looked to do a small intimate wedding at city hall in San Francisco. But Ken wanted more for his fiancé. He wanted a celebration that would bring his family together and also give Kirstie the opportunity to have her dad — who so obviously loves his daughter so much — walk her down the aisle.
Xiaochen and Xiang have an interesting story. Both from China, they met on the campus of Columbia University in New York City. Xiang realized when he saw her at Butler Library that Xiaochen was the girl from his dreams growing up. And while the Columbia campus is like out of a dream as well, this girl was real! “That’s Her!”
Jean and Xuyang had a dreamy elopement with just a few friends at beautiful Four Seasons Resort Maui. The day and venue did not disappoint as everything came together in a perfect shoot. The wedding was captured and delivered in stunning 4K resolution.
Katrina and Louis hired us for our cinematic look. The final cut didn’t disappoint.
If there is a characteristic that pervades most of our films, it’s a sense of thought-provoking contemplation. Jing and Victor are both quiet, thoughtful people and they must have picked-up on the similar wavelength. They booked us for a full day to create their film.
He from Italy, she from Hawai`i. They marry no where near the middle, in Hawai`i. View the breathtaking imagery from various locations on Maui.
Can you imagine being Aryana, a free-spirited wild-child who at the age of 4 already ran away from home? OK OK, I should add that she packed her lunchbox of all things and only made it as far as the mailbox at the end of the driveway before rethinking the plan, but still: the intent was clearly there!
This is the love story of Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist Julia Mancuso and her beau, Dylan Fish. It was shot on Tavarua Island in Fiji.
Melanie was a bridesmaid at Melissa’s wedding a year prior. When she saw the film we created for her bestie, she HAD to have us for her wedding on O`ahu the beautiful Kahala Resort and Spa.
Janet and Gregg have a long history in Hawaii and wanted their wedding at the Grand Hyatt Kauai to be portrayed in an epic light.
Nestled right on the shore of Makena sits White Orchid Wedding Beach House. It is where Katrina and Maurice chose to tell their story.
Grace and Justin fell in love with some of our more dreamy and etherial portfolio samples. They were in Australia and we in Hawaii. After timezone coordination sorted, we hopped on a Skype call and they shared their story with us. As you will see in the film itself, it’s quite a love story, as the minister Ron Winckler tells it.
Kristina and Zac celebrated their marriage in North Kihei with family and friends, and with a touching Christian ceremony.
A first date at Starbucks, when neither of them drank coffee to their first kiss at the cemetery in Ft. Worth, it’s fair to say these two are able to tune out the outside world and focus deeply on one another.
David emailed me on a Sunday night regarding his Big Island Wedding, decided to book us on a Tuesday and we flew to the Big Island on a Thursday that same week to shoot his and Kyle’s wedding. A stunning affair directly on the beach with a reception dinner to follow made for a truly magical experience.
Sydney first contacted us via The Knot. She was attracted to our storytelling style that sought not to merely document the day, the location and the wedding, but rather shed a larger perspective on their lives and how they got here.
Nina and David had a fun, playful side to them, firm in the belief of where they stand in their lives. Their friends’ speeches and their own personal vows showed this off beautifully and the resulting film that you see is designed to highlight this almost comedic and light-hearted side.
Mimi and Indo called us in September of 2016. They saw our portfolio and loved it. As a result, they had faith in us being able to tell their story the way they wanted it: etherial, adventurous and epic.
Lauren and John eloped in Maui and wanted a low-key day, but with a film that said something about who they are and what their love of one another is based on.
It’s been a long, tumultuous summer and fall season for us. From the many stunning cinematic weddings here in Hawaii to a 2 week wedding jaunt in France, Monaco and Italy, we’ve gone through the gamut.
“You can’t put conflict in a wedding film! You’re CRAZY! It’s JUST NOT DONE!” I’ve been told. Well, I don’t believe them
