I aim to make the photo session a fun experience.  not too posed, dramatic backdrops. i prefer daylight lighting but as a cinamatographer i’m more than qualified to offer sunset/ sunrise lighting for those wanting to see the sun dip into the ocean.

"a story has to have a story, you can’t call it a story when you show up at a wedding with a video camera and shoot some nice looking footage!” 

— david marsh, Kauai wedding videographer.

As a film and video teacher, I’ve asked dozens of eager-to-learn videographers over the years what they strive for in a wedding video. The most common answer is a story. I’ve even been told, ”a story with a begining, a middle and an end.” Fancy that!  I’ve also been told: "make it entertaining,” and “capture the emotion,” like it’s something on the run, bagged and tagged. While every videographer loves it when the bride or groom cries, especially during personal vows, while the Camera is rolling, that is not story-telling. It’s cinema verite! Happenstance capture! Neither is fancy video editing and well timed music to the wedding video story-telling. But to be candid,  most couples don’t want more—the wedding actually is THEIR STORY. They just need the wedding video to be well shot, to show off the location,  have good sound, and as long as they can proudly show it to family and friends back home, and have  the perfect keepsake for future family and reminiscing, it’s plenty good enough. BUT ... for the few who want MORE of a wedding video, who want real story-telling, It all begins with pre-planning and collaberation. It requires a blueprint. This is where I excel. As a filmmaker who has lived and breathed Hollywood for thirty years, collaborating on hundreds of TV shows and movies, I just love story-telling, and I’d like to produce your story as a designer-crafted  Kauai wedding video .

“I'm crazy about natural photo capture and i love getting it collaboratively. heck, it's not about me saying 'do this like this and stand this way.' yeah, i do give direction but my aim is to provoke the unexpected and to keep it fun, most of all, natural.” —

Portraiture by Kauai photographer David Marsh 

Traditional wedding videography is perfect for couples who desire to show their kin and friends back home the spectacular beach and the “i do” moment whereas designer crafted videos are akin to real film production, starting wth a working script .

Kauai Videography weddings and events 

 Can you afford not to have a wedding video? Months, even years go into the planning: the gown, wedding rings, invitations,  flowers. Then, when the day comes, you’ll experience so many emotions;  laughter, tears, flashbulbs and the wedding will race by—you might even feel like you're in a fog, catching mere glimpses of your own 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?” This is why i’m thrilled to be a kauai wedding videographer.   

I am proud to offer Kauai’s Jewish community Bar Matzva and Bat Mitzva videography and photography options -  Let’s rock! Kauai event photography/videography

Not every one wants to get married in the rain, or have their photo session in the pouring rain, which is why we try to be as flexible as possible in regards to switching times, even the date if possible, at no extra charge.
