The woman who had passed away was a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, so, there was a lot of wonderful singing at this moving memorial service that lasted almost six hours. Here are a few stills from the video I recorded.

Memorial services are very sad occasions, but at the same time there is a positive healing element. And they can be an opportunity to visit with people you haven't see for a long time. This person who had passed away had obviously touched the lives of very many people. These are stills from the video I shot at the eulogy services, funeral mass, and burial.

This couple chose to have their ceremony in the shade just off of the beach. When planning a beach wedding it's important to keep in mind that the sun can be very hot! Mornings are best to beat the heat. If you must have your ceremony in the afternoon, try to ensure that at least your guests are in the shade. I did video of this ceremony and extracted photos from the video.

So humid on that day! I had to use Photoshop to get rid of a lot of perspiration. There are some nice gardens there. I also shot video of the wedding ceremony and part of the reception, and the package includes some photos extracted from the video. Ask about how I can tailor a mix of photography and video to suit your needs.

Big first birthday celebrations are a tradition in Hawaii and I cover a lot of them! Most feature a magic show but this one had a show with a clown giving the kids elaborate balloon sculptures. In order to get the balloons they had to win silly contests like who could get wrapped in toilet paper the fastest. Better than a magic show I thought, because there's more audience participation. I shot video and also provided stills taken from the video. Here are some of them.

This wedding had it all! A beautiful setting in Kaneohe for the ceremony, and at the reception in Waikiki, lots of musical performances and dancing. I also covered the getting ready before the ceremony. A real workout for my cameras!
