Your wedding is an extraordinary moment in your life. Months, maybe even years, have gone into the planning: the dress, rings, invitation lists, venue, table seatings, and so much more. Then, when the day 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 you'll feel like you're in a fog, just catching glimpses of your own wedding. How many times have I heard a bride say: "I truly don't remember that bit, I'm so glad you caught in on video."
In this wedding documentary below, filmed in Hanalei town and the luxurious St. Regis hotel in Princeville, Kauai, the wedding guests say what's on their mind. This is just 4 minutes out of an epic 90-minute wedding video. Resort wedding, premium package options were chosen.
Although based in Kauai, we often film on the mainland. We typically film documentary/cinema verite-style, but we are very capable of filming a scripted, cinematic wedding.
The wedding (below) took place at a private residence along Hanalei Bay. A video with a strong romantic storyline, this is definitely not your everyday wedding video. Once you watch the second half you'll see what I mean. Elope wedding, premium package options.
As producers and directors with decades of feature film and TV experience, with a wedding video portfolio since 2007, with a BAFTA award for editing, you'll be hard pressed to find a video production outfit in Kauai with more skill and more experience.
Many couples planning their vows in the islands choose to only have their ceremony filmed. This works well for those on a very tight budget who wish to share this important moment with family members and friends not present on the day. Yet many of these couples, after their wedding, wish that we'd filmed them getting ready, wished that we'd shown how they loved the island, went strolling arm in arm, taking in our spectacular sunsets, etc. We agree. We believe that extraordinary wedding videos (even intimate affairs) reveal more about the special day—things like getting ready, strolling on the beach, going out to dinner, swimming with the dolphins, hanging out in your hotel. But either way, simple or a complete documentary, when you choose Kauai Video Productions rest assured you will be receiving a classically crafted digital 35mm presentation (not regular video) on DVD or Blu-ray, with appropriate usage of black and white, sometimes sepia shots, used in a skillful and artistic way. You will NOT SEE cheesy video wipes or overly long slow motion shots of walking couples, a style overused by so many inexperienced or old-fashioned videographers. You will not see flat image video, but rather rich textured digital cinema.
We make certain that each of our wedding films is unique—yours will not be a cookie cutter type wedding video.
We film with multiple cameras so that gone-in-a-blink moments can be filmed from more than one perspective. We like to seek out the unusual and integrate it in the video—and because we film with multiple cameras we are much more likely to hone in on those special moments.
We take the editing of each event film as if it were a feature film, neither skimping on time or effort, and as our background is theatrical films, we know what we’re talking about.

We always ask our clients about their stylistic preferences, but let's face it, all of us sometimes only know what we want when we see it, so aside from providing our clients with more than 30 demos to watch here on this website and on Vimeo, we've created a styles video to showcase some of the preferred "looks" in wedding videos. HERE: We 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 our videos…
Why choose a professional videographer?
In this age of portable communication devices that are capable of producing great looking video, what's the point of hiring a professional to video your wedding day when you can just tell guests, "pull out your phones and shoot like crazy?" The answer in two words: professional continuity. While the iPhone crowd will probably capture some outstanding video for you, large sections of your wedding ceremony will either be missing or the video will show keepsake moments framed for shame, meaning: terrible composition, portrait (long) framing, fingers in the frame, shaky out-of-focus camera-work, just unusable stuff. Your pre-ceremony shots will be even more lacking.
Having uncle Bill shoot video for you with his DSLR alongside the phone crowd might be enough to fill in what's missing, but you're still going to need an editor to put together footage from numerous sources. The likelihood of receiving a crisp, professional looking wedding video with good sound is going to be slim, at best. While the do-it-yourself film craze is here to stay, the professional wedding videographer and the professional film-maker is not going to vanish anytime soon simply because of those two words: Professional continuity.
It is generally accepted that more than one photographer for a wedding is normal, even needed for a superbly photographed wedding day. Strangely, this axiom is often overlooked in videography. Yet the need for an additional videographer is equally, if not more, important. One camera videography is fine if your videographer is using a point-and-shoot video camera, and it's fine for tiny weddings but a single videographer cannot supply the kind of video coverage typical of a multi-camera wedding video shoot. Two videographers with three or four cameras is the ideal combination for most weddings.
