How We Work
- The minister and/or groom are set-up with remote lapel microphones before the start.
- For the ceremony, the camera is on a tripod for steadiness and for making smooth zooms and pans. During other times, the camera is handheld for a more dynamic shots.
- All video is shot using natural light with the videographer making adjustments for lighting changes.
FYI: You may still see the shadows coming in and out as the sun is covered by clouds but, it will be far less pronounced versus having a camera run automatically.
FYI: At some locations like Waialae/Kahala where we have you standing in the shade under the coconut trees and for events late in the day the sky will be brighter than the camera can handle, to properly expose for the couple, the backgrounds may be "blown-out" and the sky very light blue or white. It is what it is.
FYI: Remote lapel microphones for the officiate and the groom allows for better voice and overall sound quality but, they will not eliminate the sound of the waves and wind which is still picked up to varying degrees depending upon the conditions. But hey, you're on the beach :)
- We can only use copyright music purchased for our video movies. No other music can be placed on our video movies. We know, other websites say that they'll put whatever but, the copyright penalty starts at $10,000 for each infraction and videographers in Hawaii have been prosecuted. If you want to do your own editing, add our partially edited uncut version.
"Please convey our thanks to the videographer. We really enjoyed the video. I missed a lot of the ceremony as it passed so fast. With the video, we have been able to enjoy it at our leisure with our family. He did a great job editing, it feels like we were back on the islands. Thanks, Alison".
"Thank you very much, this is perfect. We had a great day and couldn't have been any happier with the way things were done. We are very happy we chose to use your company and would thoroughly recommend you in the future, we would be happy to write a testimonial should you want one. We were wondering if there were any way possible to get a copy of the words that were said by the minister as there were lots of interesting bits that are not used in an English wedding and there was too much going on to take it all in and remember it at the time."
"That was a great ceremony, we wish we had video to record it, can we get a copy of the words?"
