While moving pictures run through my veins and into my imagination, a single image resides in my heart, proof of my love of photography. 

Kauai engagement session shot by Difraser. Hanalei Bay summer evening. In the winter months the boats will not be here.

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

Let’s talk about me —  If asked to decribe myself I’d say I’m somewhat artsy; I know I talk funny, well in America I do.  Back home in England they say I’ve got an American accent; here in America they say I have an English accent. If you want to know more please peruse my mini biography on the ME page. 

Let's talk photography — most of the applied time in photography goes into the post (editing); at least for me it does. On an average one hour of shoot   equals four hours of photo editing.  Luckily, I love it.  I’m also fast!  While many photographers say it will take a month or two, even six months, to get the photos ready, ten days and often less is my norm. Please visit one of my photography galleries to view glimpses of my  photography.  

Let's talk video— Because we can get high quality video from our phones and POV cameras, you might be considering shooting your own event. And maybe it will turn out just spiffy. But first, ask yourself: does your video need to be professional? Does the sound need to be clean without annoying hissy wind or crashing waves making it impossible to hear what’s being said. Are you comfortable with dozens of hours or even days on the video editing?  Now, if you're already a video professional, you know what’s involved.  But if you are not a professional, are you really up to it?  I (Difraser) shoot all sorts of video projects; I use full frame cameras, top-notch lenses, professional sound equipment, stabilzers, rails, etc.  I am also comfortable shooting digital wedding cinematography with industry standard Red or Alexia  cameras— for really big budget weddings.   

Let’s talk weddings—  So, you’ve decided to get married on Kauai - there isn’t a better place. The Knot publication lists Kauai as one of the top ten destination wedding locations in the world!  A wedding is an extraordinary moment in one’s life. Months even years go into the planning: the wedding dress, bride and groom rings, wedding invitation list, venue, table seatings—well, you know all of this. Then, when the wedding finally comes, you and your spouse and your family and friends  experience so many emotions—excitement and laughter and tears and flashbulbs, and the day races 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 Kauai wedding video that I will craft for you will be one of the best wedding choices you will make.  More on this subject in Kauai Bride and Groom Tips

Is yours a destination wedding? Destination weddings typically mean that you and your guests and even most of your wedding vendors will be arriving on Kauai from someplace else. Many destination weddings bring their own vendors with them. However, using local vendors will certainly reduce your expenditure. I would suggest using a local wedding planner; I can help here.  Kauai Destination Wedding Help and Referrals.  You can always ask me ( Difraser) for things such as local reception venues, great spots for a wedding on the beach, 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.

Kauai Wedding on a budget? Yes

Kauai Wedding videos designed as stories? Yes.  

Time: depends on where you are

Travel expense - I do charge a fee for some areas but not if your media expenditure is over $2000

Is it Kauai or Kaua’i? Both are commonly used, but if correctness is required I am a Kaua’i wedding videographer.  

Kaua'i Video Productions /  Difraser and his team of professional Kauai wedding videographers and photographers are happy to refer you to other Kauai wedding professionals,  wedding planners, D.Js, caterers, Kauai flower shops, hair stylists, wedding officiants, ministers, wedding musicians, gown seamstresses, and real estate owners that rent their house or estate for weddings.  

Who is the best Kauai wedding videographer? Can this question be honestly answered? Isn’t it like the best picture at the Oscars? Or Best song of the year?  Really the best?   With all that said the famous Beverly Hills videographer gives the best Kaua’i videographer nod to Difraser.
