INTRODUCTION TO CREATIVE VIDEOGRAPHER DIFRASER 

Kauai wedding video -  quirky great!   

 Aloha.  I am a Difraser, an established professional Kauai videographer, film and video director, and photographer ***** 5 stars  reviewed on Google, Facebook, Thumbtack, Pridezillas, Weddingwire, Yelp.  I have been filming on Kauai since 1989, with over 1000 videos to my name, and I have professionally photographed more people than I care to estimate.  Request a booking

If you are planning an engagement on Kauai, Hawaii, or a wedding, or vow renewal, or a family vacation, I’d be sucker-punched if you didn’t at least consider me to be your photographer or videographer. Please check out my vast porfolio which includes weddings, parties, sporting events, corporate events, as well as commercial videography and photography.  For weddings, I offer journalistic or designer-styled cinematic Kauai wedding videos, which are not your average video.  Request a booking

The sun is down…three speedlights were enough to eliminate unwanted shadows whilst allowing soft light to fall onto the wedding couple ...

Lets talk about me —  If asked to decribe myself I’d say I’m typically British. I know I talk funny—even my daughter says I talk funny. I wear a bunch of hats:  Kauai wedding videographer, photographer, author, sometimes oddly imaginative graphic artist. If you want to know more, you can peruse my mini biographical on my ME page. 

Let's talk about photography — most of the applied time in photography goes into the editing; at least for me it does. On an average one hour of shoot time equals 4 hours of photo editing.  Luckily, I love it.  I’m also fast!  While many photographers say it will take a month,  two, even six months to get the photos ready, 10 days is plenty for me. It’s usually less.   Please visit one of my photography galleries to view some of my  work. 

Let's talk about video— In this digital age of high quality video from phones, pads, and tiny cameras, you might be considering shooting your own event, party, celebration yourself, and maybe if you do it will turn out just great. But first, ask yourself these few questions: does your video need to look polished and professional? Does the sound, especially dialogue, need to be clean, without annoying background sounds like hissy wind and crashing wave sounds making it impossible to hear what’s this person or that person is saying?  Are you comfortable spending lots and lots of hours, maybe even days, on the video’s editing?  How quickly do you think you can complete the video? Now, if you're already a video professional, you know what’s involved and the questions will seem moot.  But if you are not a professional, are you really up to doing all of the work for your very important event?  I (Difraser) shoot all sorts of video projects, with high end cameras and lenses, and I use top notch professional sound equipment, stabilzers, rails, etc.  I am also comfortable shooting digital wedding cinematography with industry standard Red or Alexia cinema cameras— for bigger budget weddings.  Overkill for most!    

Let’s talk about weddings—  So, you’ve decided to get married on Kauai - there isn’t a better place. The Knot publication lists Kauai as one of the top ten destination wedding locations in the world!  A wedding is an extraordinary moment in one’s life. Months or maybe even years go into the planning: the wedding dress, bride and groom rings, wedding invitation list, venue, table seatings—well, you know all of this. Then, when the wedding finally comes, you and your spouse and your family and friends  experience so many emotions—excitement and laughter and tears and flashbulbs, and the day races by—you might even feel like you're in a fog, catching mere glimpses of your own Kauai wedding.  How many times have I heard a bride say:  "I truly don't remember that, I'm so glad you captured it on video.”   If you are planning a Kauai wedding and are unsure of a wedding video, I hope you are reading this. The professional wedding video that I would love to craft for you will be one of the best wedding planning choices you will make.  More on this subject in Kauai Bride and Groom Tips. 

So... is yours a destination wedding? Destination weddings typically mean that you and your guests and even most of your wedding vendors are not local. Using local vendors can greatly reduce your costs. A local wedding planner might be the answer here. But if your wedding is an elope / getaway wedding even a wedding planner might seem like a burdensome expense. Solution? You can always ask me ( Difraser) for things such as local reception venues, great spots for a wedding on the beach, and do I know a Kauai DJ?  Yes. Musician who does weddings? Yes. Who’s a really good wedding officiant in Kauai?  Kelvin Ho is one. I have video of Kelvin on this website.   Another of my favorites is Koko Kaneali’I. I also have videos of Koko on this website.  Now, while we’re on the subject of weddings, I’m going to mention the word unusual, as in An unusual Case of a perfume ad Wedding Video. You’ve seen those ads, the bride tossing up her bouquet into the air and dashing along the beach, into the arms of her mysterious lover.  The point is: your wedding video does not need to be traditional. It does not need to be a long, drawn out linear telling of the day, one that your friends back home will watch only because you’ve hit the remote button and told them,  ”Well, this was it...” and what can the poor bastards do other than tell you, “How amazing...”   and hide the fact that it’s a grin-and-bear-it ordeal.  But what if you hit the remote button and saw huge smiles, because they’re watching something really awesome, a wedding video more like a Miss Dior Eau de Parfum ad?  So…ask yourself, are you up for something extraordinary, completely different, with a wow-and-dazzle-them factor? If you are, think Designer Crafted. A unique and unusual wedding video. It’s what I do!

From time to time I dabble in website creation. This site for example, www.kauaivideoproductions.com was created by me. So if you’re looking for a beautiful new website that heavily focuses on video or photographs, that’s easy and clean to navigate around by all means call or e-mail me.  Here’s another site I designed:   http://www.breitstonecollection.com  


Kauai Video Productions /  Difraser and his team of media professionals are happy to refer you to other Kauai wedding professionals,    wedding planners, D.Js, caterers, Kauai flower shops, hair stylists, wedding officiants, ministers, wedding musicians, gown seamstresses, and real estate owners that rent their house or estate for weddings.  

Who is the best wedding videographer on Kauai? Can this question be honestly answered? Isn’t it like the best picture at the Oscars? Or Best song of the year?  Really the best?   With all that said the famous Beverly Hills videographer gives the nod to Difraser.
