VIDEOGRAPHY and PHOTOGRAPHY  

We are a 5-star reviewed Kauai video and photography team who specializes in wedding videography and photography on the beautiful Kauai island, Hawaii. For video, you can choose classical and elegant, stunningly different, or one of our other terrific options for a wedding video. We are 2 professional videographers and photographers (not hobbyists) with a vast portfolio (not only weddings!). If you are planning a wedding on Kauai, Hawaii, or an engagement, or a vow renewal,  we'd be sucker-punched if you didn’t at least consider us as your photographer or videographer. If you scroll down this webpage you’ll see an overview of our work  or use the menus (right and top bar) to explore our work in greater detail.

If a single picture says a thousand words, imagine then, four thousand three hundred and sixty-two pictures— that’s a 4-minute music video, or thirty-two thousand, eight hundred and sixty moving pictures—a high-end storybook wedding video. The power of moving pictures—imagination to say it all.

Moving pictures run through my (Difraser's) veins, but a single image resides in my heart, proof of my love of photography.

Let’s talk about Difraser —  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 about me and Samuel (wingman) please peruse our 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, we love it.  We’re 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 our norm.

Let's talk video— Because 1080p and 4K video is readily accessible from phones and POV cameras, you might be considering shooting your own event. Maybe it will turn out great. But first, ask yourself, does your video need to be professional? Do your shots need to be free of jery movement and blur? Does the sound need to be clean without hissy wind and crashing waves so loud you cannot hear the vows? Are you comfortable with dozens of hours, even days video editing?  Now, if you're already a video professional, you'll know what’s involved.  But if you are not a professional, are you really up to it?  We shoot with full frame cameras, the best lenses, professional sound equipment, film stabilzers, rails, etc. We are also comfortable shooting digital cinematography using Red or Arri Alexa or Canon C700 cameras— for really big budget weddings, commercials, shorts.

Let’s talk weddings—  So, you’ve decided to get married on Kauai. 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, wedding bouquet and corsages, flowers, table seatings—well, you know all of this. Then, when the day finally comes, you and your spouse and family and friends  experience so many emotions; there’s 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.”

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 wedding couples bring their own vendors. However, using local vendors will certainly reduce 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? Someone who crafts the Hawaiian Haku lei?  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.  

Vow renewals Kauai - a vow-renewal video to commemorate or a photo session 

Kauai vow renewal after 20 years

Are you ready to say “I do” again? If you are it’s likely that you’ll want an intimate ceremony with just your family present. It’s a great opportunity for some stunning family photos.  Family sessions in 2 or 3 different spots on the island, perhaps a beach setting, forest setting and one of Kauai’s local town settings such as Hanalei really make it special! We offer a 3-hr vow-renewal rate-reduced session w/ optional video coverage.

Some questions you might have for us. More on our Q and A page. 

Ethnic Kauai weddings? Yes.    Kauai Wedding on a budget? Yes Kauai Wedding videos designed as stories? Yes.   

Do I use an agreement form? Yes, something like this

Is it Kauai or Kaua’i? Both are commonly used, but if correctness is required I am a Kaua’i wedding videographer and cinematographer.  BTW — There is a huge difference between wedding videography and digital wedding cinematography 


Kaua'i Video Productions /  Difraser and Samuel and Lana (our 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 Kauai 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?  With all that said the famous Beverly Hills videographer gives the best nod to Kaua’i videographers Difraser and Samuel.
