Jordan T. Nagasako “Driven by Artistic Passion”

Jordan takes a personal pride in his craft, passionately giving his very best to every film he produces. Videography was a natural outcome of his past career as a professional inline skater. He began in his youth by making promotional videos for his skate sponsors. This drew him into other video projects and before long he was producing sports segments for television.

Now, 15 years in the videography and far beyond his beginnings in action sports, Jordan has earned his accolades in all aspects of video production. He has shot everything from simple beach wedding to elegant multi-day weddings, same day edits, commercial projects, corporate events, athlete profiles, memorials, music videos and many other productions.

HI FOCUSED’s prestigious work and stellar reviews are a result of his dedication, professionalism and congeniality. His awards include winner of The Knot Best of Weddings award for the last two years, WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award for the last six years, as well as the highest rated cinematographer on WeddingWire, and he’s a preferred vendor for Hawaii’s top planners, hotels and venues.

Making a great film is a group effort. Here is the rest of the HI FOCUSED Team, all giving their unique and personal touch to our signature wedding films.
