A Wedding in Lanikai

Lanikai Beach, with its powdery sand and two offshore islets, is one of the most beautiful settings Oahu has to offer for a wedding. However, unless you do a sunrise wedding you usually have to share the beach with a lot of people. Another alternative is to have your wedding at a private beachfront home, as this couple did. These are stills taken from the 4k video I shot.

Floating Lanterns Ceremony

This wasn't a paid gig for me, but I'm including it here as an example of how it can be very useful to shoot 4k video when you want pictures. This ceremony of remembrance of departed loved ones has become extremely popular and as a result the beach was packed with people and it was difficult to get an unobstructed shot. (Next time I will come earlier to get a better vantage point!) But by shooting 4k video I was able to later on extract moments when the view was not as blocked. Shooting 4k also allowed me to find moments when the constantly moving lanterns and boats were nicely placed for the composition of the shots.

First Birthday: Same Family, New Celebrant

I had done video of the first birthday celebration of this celebrant's older sibling. Nice to know that the mom liked my work enough to go with me again! These are all stills taken from 4k video.

An Anniversary Celebration

A good time was had by all. Some of these are stills taken from the 4k video I shot, and some are regular photos taken by the photographer I usually work with, Larry. Can you tell which ones are his?
