Videography Kauai

 Aloha.  I am a Difraser,  award winning Kauai wedding videographer and photographer ***** 5 stars  reviewed on Google, Facebook, Thumbtack, Pridezillas, Weddingwire, Yelp.    

Featured wedding video                  Photographer Kauai                      Trash-the-dress

 I admit it! I do have a penchant for the dramatic look. If that’s what also interest you, please consider me as your Kauai wedding photographer an/or your Kauai wedding videographer  

Sunest photography--with speed lights, or natural light—I shoot both. I offer journalistic and designer-crafted Kauai wedding videos, which are not your average wedding video.

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

A bridal party under the Kauai night sky…lights, naturally 

 They (below) said their vows on the cliffs overlooking the ocean, then decided to go for a swim…It’s a trash-the-dress photo shoot.

Yours truly, the nutty Kauai wedding videographer, went with them, scrambling over lofty boulders into slimey rock pools, and then I dropped my 70-200mm. Yup, a $2000 lens.  

Here, you’ll see that they first decided to get their feet wet before taking the full plunge. Luckily, my lens was still working. More from this set HERE

Surf photographer Kauai shot in B&W. So many backdrops, photo ops, anywhere you look or turn, that's Kauai.

With Kauai's sun-drenched beaches, breath-stealing sunsets, and verdant tropical forests, our island is a stirring backdrop for your event.

Model Tiera. She’s from Kauai, lives on Oahu. This is her portfolio video. Models and actors videos. 

 You see where these two are standing? Well you don’t want to do this in the winter. This is Queen’s Bath. You’ll see warning signs posted here: Dangerous waves!  But this was summer, whene the sea is calm, and I love sunset photography. I’ve yet to shoot a wedding video down here at Queen’s Bath. Maybe I can do one for you?

Top tip: This is a tip from your Kauai wedding videographer Difraser: Make sure that you DO NOT get upstaged by your wedding officiant.   “upstage” def: divert attention from (someone) toward oneself; outshine.   Basically, You (NOT your officiant) deserves the best background.   Here’s an example: A couple is on a spectacular beach for their wedding. They’re so wrapped up in the excitement of the moment that when the officiant says, “now stand here,”  they allow themselves to be postioned away from the dramatic background, for the entire ceremony.  Now the officiant has the wonderful background, the lush mountains or crashing ocean waves behind him and the couple has a palm tree and a power transformer.  Remember, your officiant is not the star!     This has been a wedding video tip by Difraser—years of experience!     

As your Kauai wedding photographer and Kauai photographer I serve all areas of the island. However,  north shore locations are my preference.   Other types of video that I shoot are: maternity videos, trash the dress photography and video,   love story videos, life story videos, testimonial videos, corporate videos, real estate video, surf videos, holiday videos, vacation videos, destination videography and photography—in fact whenever video or photography is needed, I do that.     

Here’s the question I get most:  What do you charge for a wedding video? Starters: $500—my low priced video, $1350, $1950, $2500 mid-range priced videos, above $2500 premium videos. You see I don’t just offer one type of video, for the same reason that restaurants don’t only serve one dish and real estate agents don’t only sell one model of house. My lowest priced, most simple wedding video is not edited, but is well shot, with clarity in the audio not attainable by a non-professional. My lesser priced videos are  journalistic, fly-on-the-wall type of video capture.  In my designer-crafted wedding videos I spend time designing and staging the look of the video. 

I am a professional not a hobyist.    Equipped for the job in every way, I use the best equioment and best back up equipment. I offer consistency,  professional results every time I shoot, perfect  audio even on a windy day at the beach.  

Your Kauai wedding is an extraordinary moment in your life. Months, maybe even years, have gone into the planning: the wedding dress, bride and groom rings, wedding invitation list, venue, table seatings, and so much more. Then, when the wedding finally comes, you and your spouse and your family and friends will experience so many emotions. There will be excitement and laughter and tears and flashbulbs, and the day will race 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 bit, I'm so glad you captured it on film, in on my very own Kauai wedding video.”   If you are planning a Kauai wedding and are unsure of having a wedding video, I hope you are reading this. I can tell you, as your Kauai wedding videographer, the wedding video I will craft for you will be the most perfect keepsake, and one of the best choices you will ever make.  


Fantastic Kauai wedding video editing - Many say this is the most important part of film making, and franky I agree.   As an International Emmy recipient,  I’m super fast — usually it takes me less than 2 weeks to deliver a highly crafted edited Kauai wedding video.  I can also edit videos shot by someone else.  

Cinematography too!  If that's what you want. What’s the difference between videography and cinematography?  Aside from cinematic techniques for filming, the biggest difference is:  A videographer shoots video while a cinematographer uses light to create a scene ready for filming. In cinematography, the visuals just don’t become cinamtography because a fancy camera is rolling. While  cinematic tools such as camera cranes, stabiizers, rails, aerial cameras, even an expensive Red Dragon camera, can add to the overall cinematic feel of a video,  unless the so called cinematographer is manipulating light, not just ironing out a clever dollyshot, he/she is not a cinematographer. To believe so is a giant leap into an alternative reality.  I can be hired as a cinematographer on mid to higher priced  designer-crafted wedding videos.

A Wedding Videographer Kauai 

Your Kauai wedding video is special not just to you, to me too.  I make certain that each of my Kauai wedding wedding films is unique—yours will not be a cookie cutter type Kauai wedding video. And while I do like to film all of my Kauai wedding videos with multiple cameras so that gone-in-a-blink moments can be filmed from more than one perspective, I realize that budget is important.  Here are some of my Kauai wedding video options 


The advantage of having more than one Kauai wedding videographer…

It is universally accepted that you need at least two photographers for a wedding. Oddly,   when it comes to wedding videography few people think they’ll need more than one videographer.  In reality, the need for an additional wedding videographer is perhaps more important than the need for a second photographer. Two videographers means more tailored video footage (fewer static—2nd camera unattended shots).  More on this important subject HERE

 I could go on, but there's an old British proverb: The proof of the pudding is in the eating. So take a bite, I mean take a look at some of my Kauai wedding videos, and my Kauai wedding photography and hopefully we’ll be talking soon.  Aloha.— Difraser
