Wedding photography, wedding videography. Actors and models photography. Commercial photography and videography. Yes to all. I am an English wedding cinematographer, photographer and award winning editor who has a savyy eye for dramatics. So if you’re game for a different mix of wedding photography, or a standout wedding video, please shoot me Difraser an e-mail or call me—I'd love to hear from you. Mahalo.
With our sun-drenched beaches, breath-stealing sunsets, and verdant tropical forests, Kauai is a stirring backdrop for weddings, models' portfolios, television commercials, theatrical and musical productions—in fact, whatever your Kauai video or photographic needs are, I have thousands of hours of experience that I lend to every project I work on, be it the biggest or smallest.
Have you ever considered a trash-the-dress photo or video shoot? The couple in the next few photos (below) got married on the cliffs overlooking the ocean, then decided to go for a swim. Photographer Difraser went with them.

Here are some guides for Kauai Brides
Your Kauai 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 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.”
Unbelievably fantastic Kauai wedding video editing
In the real estate business there's a saying: location, location, location, location. In the wedding video business, it's editing, editing, editing! Editing is my bailiwick, my realm, my wheelhouse. It runs in my veins. And I’ve won awards for the craft including an International Emmy. And guess what? I’m super fast at it. It usually takes me no longer than 2 weeks to deliver a highly crafted edited Kauai wedding video to my client. I just send an e-mail informing the client that their Kauai wedding video is ready to download in full HD from my cloud storage.
From a Kauai wedding videographer, Kauai wedding photographer, beautiful Kauai wedding love stories ...

Many couples choose to only have their Kauai wedding ceremony filmed. While this is a wonderful keepsake, some couples later wish that I had filmed the getting ready moments, or that I captured moments strolling arm in arm along a sun-dappled beach in the sunset hour. Please be mindful, that with long lenses I blend into the background at your wedding. I’m not intrusive. And despite my portfolio and credits, I’m not expensive.
A Wedding Videographer Kauai
Your Kauai wedding video is special not just to you, to me as well. As a standard, 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 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, and the magic of my Kauai wedding video can also be obtained with a single camera.
The advantage of having more than one Kauai wedding videographer…
Unless it’s a beach wedding without guests, it is universally accepted that you'll need two or more photographers to photography your wedding. Oddly, when it comes to wedding videography few people think they’ll need more than one videographer. And indeed it is a very odd perception. 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 and 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.
Great expectations - video
What to expect in your wedding video? Will it be as awesome as the video you really liked? The honest answer - maybe — although the answer might very well be yes based upon several criteria: the location you choose, comparable amount of guests, comparable hours, the same amount of videographers, the time of the year and the weather of the day, your preference in music, and maybe other intangible or tangible factors. I wrote an article once called wedding video ingredients. In a nutshell, the more things happening at a wedding (ingredients) the greater the likelihood the video will be dynamic. But remember: live events are tricky. Not all live events go off without a hitch—you’ve seen goofs, glitches, mistakes, on live TV—well, they happen at weddings too. Note: photography does not share the same issues. Photography is not truly contiguous. And goofs and glitches in frozen frames do not typically reveal themeselves as goofs and glitches.
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 aside from providing my clients with more than 30 demos to watch here on this website and on Vimeo, I’ve created a styles video to showcase some of the preferred "looks" in Kauai wedding videos.
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, or if your preference is photography without video, please look at my Kauai wedding photography gallery…
