Q&A   

Q. What makes you stand out amongst other Kauai photographers/videographers?

A. I believe it’s my style, which I don’t really think about; it’s just there, natural to me, luckily pleasing to others. Of course I could have the most creative style in the world but without the know-how, the knowledge, schooling, training, well, who knows… But I also have the best film school training available, four years   studio apprenticeship at Pinewood Film Studios, England.  

Q. Do you work alone or with a team?

A.  There is an advantage of having a 2nd photographer/ videographer, even on intimate shoots. The 2nd covers b-roll shots—scenics, flower arrangements, landmarks. She shoots behind-the scenes. At times he can be invaluable with lighting, handling additional gear that I can not easily manage alone.

Q.  What do you charge?

A. Please review RATES 

Q. Can you give me great audio even on a windy beach? 

A. Yes. Absolutely, with a wireless, shielded lavalier microphone    

Q. If I choose you as my videographer are you okay with me choosing a different photographer?

A. Yes, with a caveat.  A photographer not used to working with me can find herself featured in the video, usually her backside.  Additionally, sometimes photographers are unaware that their camera flashes might be ruining video frames.  When we shoot video and photography as a combination we work as a seemless unit giving our clients the best of both mediums. 

 Q. Can I get the camera raw footage? 

A. Optionally, yes. 

Q. Do you offer a same day wedding video edit?

A. Yes.  Premium package videos. Same day 2-3 minute highlights video to view at reception, as long as there is a gap of 3+ hours between the ceremony and reception.   

 Q. What's your turnaround time? 

A. Fast. Typical time 1-2 weeks, occasionally 3 weeks

Q.  If I want changes, will you do them?

A. It’s unlikely that you’ll want changes as we’re very good at our craft, but if you do have something you’d like changed, we can do it. Bear in mind, given the time and effort that goes into each project, even small changes can equate to several hours in the edit suite; as such, we reserve the right to charge a re-edit fee at a reduced rate of $80/hr, and we will be able to tell you how many hours from our conversation about the re-edit. 

Q. You can stream live? 

A.  We are not currently offering intergrated streaming due to the irregular phone service on Kauai.   

Q. Are we the best videographers and photographers on the island?

A. We produce top-notch wedding videos, corporate videos, portraiture, landcapes, architecture— as good as any of the top videographers and photographers globally.    

Q. Can I get drone footage?

A. Yes. We offer free drone video archive footage (video that we’ve already shot) versus your own exclusive $350 flat fee for 30-mins when it’s an add-on to a package. We only fly in legal flight zones, following  FAA rules and regulations, and only when weather conditions are good. Note: Hawaii does not allow drone useage in state parks.       

Q. Do you take credit cards?

A. Yes.  

Q. If I want to hire you, what do I do?
