Trash the Dress!

These pics were all extracted from 4K video. 4K is great for fast-moving situations like this; you are effectively taking 30 pictures per second and so you can find the perfect moment!

A wedding at Waikiki Beach

They had originally set up the chairs pointing out towards the ocean but I had them move them so Diamond Head was in the background and the audience wasn't having to look into the sun. If possible, check with your videographer or photographer to make sure placement of the chairs is as good as it can be for nice pictures and videos. These are stills from the video I shot; I also took regular photos before and after the ceremony.

80th Birthday Celebration

A fun 80th birthday celebration in a Chinese restaurant. The grandkids of this lady put it together, and they also performed. Very talented! Stills from video.

An Islamic Memorial Service

An Islamic memorial service differs from a Christian one in a number of ways. One of the most interesting to me is that the body, just wrapped in cloth instead of in a coffin, is hand-carried to the grave. It is also buried without a coffin, and the family participates in burying the body at the gravesite. These are stills from video.

Sunset Wedding at Magic Island

We had a perfect sunset for this wedding. Most people choose to have their ceremony on the east side of Magic Island, with its view of Diamond Head, but the west side is great for a sunset backdrop. Then you can also get formal pictures with Diamond Head in the background.
