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?

Vlog Episode: How to Find a Wedding Videographer in Hawaii

Soon I'll be uploading a new vlog episode, about how to find a good videographer in Hawaii. Of course I hope a lot of people will choose me, but I try to be impartial in the advice I give. The advice also holds for people looking for videographers, or photographers, in other locations. I mostly discuss how to search the web with Google properly, so that you are not ending up with the same unrepresentative sample of mostly more expensive videographers that most people find using typical search methods. I also discuss Craigslist, an option many don't consider. Stay tuned.

Typical search result, with almost 5 million choices. The top results are not necessarily the best!

Episode Two of the New Vlog is Up

Episode Two of the new Vlog is up. The subject is why you should choose 4K for your event video, even if you don't see any difference from HD. It is a fact that most people in most situations are not going to see a difference, but it is still worthwhile, for the reasons I go over in the video. Please subscribe if you like what you see!

Two Great Lesser-Known Hawaii Locations For Photography

Yesterday I shot video for a wedding in which we did the formals in two wonderful, not so well-known locations. The first, called Sherwood Forest, is just a small spot at Waiamanalo Recreational Area. The kinds of trees found there, along with their just-right density, make it perfect for intimate portraits that avoid the Hawaii cliches of beaches and tropical foliage. The second spot, Lanai Lookout near Hanauma Bay, features magnificent rock formations. In this spot you would want to feature the landscape more prominently. Again, beautiful but not a typical Hawaiian look. These are stills from video.

A Sunset Wedding on Valentine's Day

I shot this wedding all in 4K. This is at beautiful Three Tables Beach on the north shore, where I have shot dozens of other weddings, at the bluff on the north end. These stills from video are all from when the photographer and I did a formals photoshoot before the ceremnony. All suitable for enlargements since it's 4K.

Special Low Price for Photoshoots in Ewa Beach

Ewa Beach, being way off the beaten path as it is and not being on the way to anywhere else, is little known to tourists or even many local residents. The town itself isn't anything very special, but the beach has one of the best views on the island. And since I live here, I can offer a special low price of just $75 for an hour-long photoshoot here. Check it out!
