WHERE ARE YOU GUYS BASED OUT OF?
We're based out of Honolulu, Hawaii on Oahu, but film on every island and all over the world.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
We're totally available to travel. Contact us and we'll get you more information.
HOW MANY CINEMATOGRAPHERS WILL BE AT OUR WEDDING DAY?
There will always be at least two cinematographers at your wedding.
HOW DO YOU WORK THROUGHOUT THE DAY?
We believe the best moments in life are ones we least expect. The spontaneous, messy, imperfect moments. We have no problem giving you direction when needed but we like to capture things organically. Letting the day unfold as it was meant to be, messy moments and all.
DO YOU RECORD THE AUDIO FOR THE CEREMONY & SPEECHES?
Yes, we record the all audio for the ceremony and speeches.
HOW DO YOU ENSURE IT'S TOP NOTCH PROFESSIONAL AUDIO?
For the ceremony we use two Lav mic's to capture the audio for both the Bride and Groom, as well the officiant. We take special care to make sure no wires are ever showing. As well, we use an extremely small form factor with our mic setup, so it's neither uncomfortable nor noticeable. We also record a backup of everything by plugging directly into the DJ's soundboard if available.
HOW DO YOU INTERACT WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHER?
We love working with photographers and do our best to work with them beforehand if needed so everything goes smoothly during your wedding day.
Do you use bright lights?
We want to ensure that we provide you with the highest quality wedding video. Sometimes that means using lights. The most common use is during the reception. Many private venues in Hawaii are romantically lit (dark). We will use lights so that your video quality is crisp and clean. We understand that you want romantic lighting, so we only use the lights when needed and turn them off when not required.
DO YOU INCLUDE DRONE FOOTAGE?
If it is legal, weather permitting, and you have enough time in your "day of" schedule, we will use one of our drones to shoot some aerial footage for your highlight video. We do not charge you extra!
HOW LONG AFTER THE WEDDING DO I GET MY SHORT FILM?
This can vary, but normally, our turn around time is 6-10 weeks for the short film. The final films will be delivered via an online link that you can share with your friends and family. Videos are delivered online via mediazilla. If purchased, a harddrive with the RAW footage will be mailed to you directly.
WHY CAN'T I USE POPULAR SONGS I HEAR ON THE RADIO?
It all comes down to what is legal. Just like paying sales tax, buying the license to music is so important to keep us legal and to keep us in good standing with music providers and Federal copyright laws. Buying a song from iTunes and using it as a music track for your wedding film is highly illegal and can come with very hefty fines and penalties. We have 4 online sources (The Music Bed, SongFreedom, Triple Scoop Music and Marmoset Music) where we license our music and they are all outstanding! The music is amazing and since we only use each song we license just once the music chosen for your wedding film really becomes YOUR music.
NOTE: All of the great films on this site use licensed music.
How do I inquire?
Once you’ve decided that we’re the best fit for you or if you're just interested, email us so we can create a custom package for you. If you feel a connection to our work, we would love to get to know you! Contact us today! After we hear from you, we'll set up a phone call. If possible, I also love to meet up with you face to face. During this initial consultation, we mostly get to know each other and see if we are a good fit. We will also talk some details about you, your fiancé and your wedding plans. This will allow us to decide on the right package and options to best tell your story.
