A Wedding at Paradise Cove Beach Shot in 4K

This couple chose the 4k option to get nice pictures straight from the video, suitable for enlargements, without having to pay for a separate photographer. The horizontal shots, even the panoramic one, are all stills from the video, while the vertical one is a regular photo I shot after the ceremony.

Gallery from Three Recent Captain Howie Weddings

As I've said before, if you use Captain Howie for your wedding ceremony and photos and video, you'll definitely have a unique experience. He doesn't dress or speak like a traditional minister, and his unusual house, known as the "Hobbit House," is a great place for photos. Its grounds feature a large, real looking artificial waterfall. You can choose to have the ceremony done there, or on the beach. Another difference is that formal photos are taken before the ceremony. The principal photographer spends a lot of time getting the poses and lighting just right. Here are some stills taken from video.

Gay Wedding at Kahana Beach

I haven't been putting up enough examples of my video work! So here is a gay wedding I shot recently. The couple had been together for 21 years; I'm so glad they finally had the opportunity to make it legal.

Graduation Party for Twins

In addition to me doing a lot of parties in general these days, for some reason many of them have involved twins! Here is a party for twin college graduates. A lot of good entertainment at this one, including two comedians. I had an assistant videographer helping me. These are stills taken from the video.

A Wedding in My Hometown, Ewa Beach

After the ceremony in a local church, the reception was held at a Ewa Beach Park in a rainstorm! Despite the rain, everybody had a good time and they managed to include almost all the traditional elements, including the bouquet toss, money dance, and hula and singing performances. These are stills extracted from the video.

A Very Entertaining First Birthday Party

As I had said in an earlier blog post, I sure am doing a lot of these first birthday party videos these days. This one featured a really good clown who made balloons, juggled, and rode a unicycle. There was a lot of audience participation and singing and dancing. This is what a party should be like! All these photos are stills taken from the video.
