A Wedding at Bellows Beach

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.

Wedding Photos at Queen Emma Summer Palace

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.

A First Birthday Celebration in Mililani

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.

A Wedding at Koolau Ballrooms

Koolau Ballrooms is one of the best wedding venues for taking formal photos on Oahu. The Koolau cliffs are a beautiful but different Hawaiian background. The reception facilities are also very nice. These are stills taken from video I shot.

North Shore Wedding Highlights Using GoPro with Stabilizer

This video features my first commercial use of my new stabilizer for the GoPro Hero4 camera. With practice, it's possible to get remarkably smooth, floating shots while walking with the camera.
