Destination videographer Kauai
Tips for brides and grooms by Difraser—based on many, many years and hundreds of weddings and events.
Top tip: Make sure your offficiant does not upstage you. —by taking the best background. “upstage” def: divert attention from (someone) toward oneself; outshine. Here’s an example: The couple is on a spectacular beach, so wrapped up in the excitement of the wedding that when the officiant says, “now stand here” they allow the officiant to turn them away from the dramatic background. Now the officiant has the wonderful mountains and crashing ocean waves behind him. Remember, your officiant is not the star! This has been a wedding video tip by Difraser—years of experience!

A professional not a hobysist for your wedding.
Why important? Hobysists can be talented but when one makes a living in a particular field, they breathe that field. They know it like the back of their hand. Take me, I’m equipped for the job in every way. This gives me consistency. Great sound always because I have the best microphones and I know where to place them. Multiple cameras and multiple lenses, so I’m never out of position; I never miss the bride’s teary eyes and the epic panoramas. I don’t provide shaky pans because my cameras are either on sliders, steadicams, tripods, even on polecams. And I’m an Emmy winning editor so I understand pacing and structure. This is my job.
More tips for Kauai Brides
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. The wedding video I will craft for you will be the most perfect keepsake, and one of the best choices you will ever make.

Scripts, shotlists, and storyboards are important parts of professional filmmaking. In sum total they define the film’s blueprint. Only a handful of wedding videographers would even consider creating a blueprint for a wedding video or love story video. Most videographers show up, stuff happens, and they video it. But I do offer a blueprint option, a tailored, thematic wedding video. If interested, we would have discussions; we might build your storyline around a passion, like horseback riding, fishing, dancing, playing video games, shopping, and your film would be shot and edited using this shot list to envelope the ceremony, adding dimension to your Kauai wedding video. I offer the blueprint option for premium package videos and my Intimate Essence video package. Example video
A Wedding Videographer Kauai
Your Kauai wedding video is special not just to you, to me as well. Beyond a rule, 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 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 of a second photographer. Two videographers means lots of video footage from different angles, and the coverage, the different angles, is the recipe for great video editing, and great editing is what makes the wedding video great. Two Kauai wedding videographers with three and sometimes four cameras is the ideal combination for an awesome Kauai wedding video.
Great expectations - video
What to expect in your wedding video? Will it be as awesome as the video you really liked on the internet? The answer might very well be yes(based upon some criteria: the location, comparable guests, comparable hours, the time of the year, weather, your preference in music, and other intangible or tangible factors. I wrote an article once called wedding video ingredients. In a nutshell, the more things happening at a wedding (ingredients) the greater the likelihood the video will be dynamic. But remember: live events are tricky. Not all live events go off without a hitch—you’ve seen goofs, glitches, mistakes, on live TV—well, they happen at weddings too. Note: photography does not share the same issues, except perhaps weather. . Goofs and glitches in frozen frames do not typically reveal themeselves as goofs and glitches. Naturally, a poorly positioned photographer will not get the best candid pictures, but that’s all about experience; it’s why you should always choose an experienced photographer.
I always ask my clients about their stylistic preferences, but let's face it, all of us sometimes only know what we want when we see it, so I’ve provided more than 30 demos to watch here on this website.
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
