The difference between videography and cinematography —  a videographer shoots video, while a cinematographer lights a scene to be filmed by a film camera or cinema resolution video recorder. 

Cinematic: a film representative of cinema: typically fashioned from a design blueprint.

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, so wrapped up in the excitement of the moment that when the officiant says, “now stand here”  they allow him / her to turn them 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  in the distance.  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.   I also shoot maternity videos, trash the dress photography and video, naturally wedding videos and photography, love story videos, life story videos, testimonial videos, corporate videos, real estate video, surf videos, holiday videos, vacation videos, destination wedding videography and photography—in fact whenever video or photography is needed, I do that.     

A professional not a hobyist. Why important? Hobyists can be talented but when one makes a living doing videography and photography they  breathe it.  Equipped for the job in every way, with the best equioment, and best back up equipment in case of equipment failure, and even back-up for the back up. Consistency: professional results always - great audio because of the best microphones and professional know-how of where to place them. Multiple cameras and multiple lenses, and once again know-how so never out of position,  never miss the bride’s teary eyes, the epic panoramas. No shaky pans — cameras are either on sliders, steadicams, tripods,  polecams.  What’s more, I am  an Emmy winning editor who fully understands pacing and structure.  This is my job.             

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.  


Unbelievably fantastic Kauai wedding video editing - Many say this is the most important area of film making. Editing runs in my veins.  I’ve won awards including an International Emmy.  I’m super fast — usually takes me no longer than 2 weeks to deliver a highly crafted edited Kauai wedding video.  I can also edit  videos taken by someone else.  

Cinematography too!

 I am a wedding videographer and a wedding cinematographer. What’s the difference?  A videographer shoots video. A cinematographer uses light to create a scene ready for filming.  The visuals just don’t happen. They are created.   Cinematic tools: camera cranes, steady-camera, camera rails, aerial camera. 


From a Kauai wedding videographer, Kauai wedding photographer, beautiful Kauai wedding love stories ... 

Your Kauai wedding videographer, Kauai wedding photographer, award winning film editor Difraser, will craft your Kauai wedding video in a unique way, whether your requirement is for an intimate beach wedding or a tent event with hundreds of guests, Difraser, your kauai wedding videographer, will create for you the film of a lifetime.   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 on select video packages.   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 in addition to filming  the ceremony, adding dimension to your Kauai wedding video.   *** 

A Wedding Videographer Kauai 

Your Kauai wedding video is special not just to you, to me too. 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 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 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.  


Style Preferences

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
