Fate. Journey. Challenges. Acceptance. Discovery.
Couple: Grace and Justin
Location: Four Seasons Resort Maui
Photographer: Anna Kim Photography
Hair and Makeup: Meili Autumn Beauty
Hawaiian Cultural Representative: Kawika Dang of Manutea Nui E
Minister: Ron Winckler
Notes: Grace and Justin fell in love with some of our more dreamy and etherial portfolio samples. After contacting us and as soon as their date availability was confirmed, they unhesitatingly put down a deposit. 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.
They had their Maui Four Seasons Wedding location set. For the film, we firstly needed to decide together on a few narrative devices that would best suite the story they wanted us to tell. In addition we worked on how best to cover their event to capture the most compelling footage! The segments we therefore covered were bridal/groom prep, with plenty of time to capture the amazing dress, the rings, make-up, as well as their amazing note reading and gift exchange. The next segment was the ceremony itself on the Maui Four Seasons wedding ocean front lawn, followed by the golden hour romantic shoot session on the famed Wailea Beach.
The result of our time together is this beautiful storybook film they will enjoy for the rest of their lives (and we believe will also touch their friends and family as well).
We sincerely hope you — the couple passing by — also loves this film.
We wanted to thank you again for creating such a wonderful video of our wedding. You were one of the best vendors we experienced. It was really great to have someone so easy and organized; it really helped the wedding day run smoothly. You & Chris really captured all the special moments of our big event and turned into a beautiful story of us.
PS: Love the aerial shot of the venue and the whale !!! 🙂
