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

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

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 equates to 4 hours of photo editing.  Luckily, I love it.   While many photographers say it will take a month or two, or even six months before the photos are ready, I say 10 days is plenty.  If you do not desire to choose me as your wedding photographer, I will by all means recommend you to the other best wedding photographers on the island.   

Let's talk about video— Your 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, 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 will 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. 

Let’s talk about weddings— So, you’ve decided to get married on Kauai - an excellent choice. The Knot lists Kauai as one of the top ten destination wedding locations in the world!  But is yours a destination wedding? Destination weddings typically mean that you and your guests and even most or all of your wedding vendors are not local. Using local vendors can greatly reduce your costs. A local wedding planner might be the answer here. If your wedding is an elope / getaway wedding even a wedding planner might seem like a burdensome expense. You can always ask me ( Difraser) for advice on 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. 

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

Fantastic wedding video editing - Many say this is the most important part of film making. Franky I agree.   As an International Emmy recipient,  I’m fast. Usually it takes me less than 2 weeks to deliver a highly crafted edited Kauai wedding video.   

Cinematography too!  Do you know the difference between videography and cinematography? If interested in a cinematic video you canread about this subject on my Tips for Brides and Grooms HERE 

 While many, if not most videographers lay claim to making cinematic wedding videos, only a few actually do.  Here’s the difference:  A videographer shoots video while a cinematographer uses light to create a scene ready for filming.  Filming with cinematic tools such as production cameras that are actually used for motion pictures (such as Alexia and Red) do not necessarily mean cinematic footage is being shot. Likewise, using film cranes, professional stabiizers, rails, and aerial cameras  can add to the overall cinematic feel of a video, but  unless the camera operator/ DP provides at least some footage where light has been manipulated, it’s not cinematography.

The advantage of having more than one 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 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. Englishism. Grub. Bangers and mash. Sweets. Marmite sandwiches. You get the picture.  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
