Maui, Kaanapali Hyatt Wedding Film

Pedro & Katrina, had the wedding they had always dreamed of.  This wedding was at the Maui, Kaanapali Hyatt.
The setting was perfect! They celebrated in style and elegance along with their friends and family.

As they shared about their experience, both of them agreed that one of their best decisions as they prepared for their special day was to hire a professional videographer to film with them. The venue was incredible and they wanted to be able to relive their wedding celebration time after time.

Almost every wedding planner highly recommends having someone with a video camera to record the wedding. However, just because someone has a video camera doesn’t mean that the equipment is professional quality and that the operator really knows how to use it. For that, you need a real professional that has the training and experience to record, edit, and produce a quality video product.

Imagine that you’ve reserved a premier destination wedding location. You and your partner are giddy with excitement, and your friends are shaking their heads in amazement. The actual wedding location has the most spectacular backdrop, and the reception and banquet facilities are beyond your wildest dreams.

Then imagine that your friend who was supposed to take some photos and a few videos shows up with an antiquated camera with scratches on the lens and a battery pack that won’t keep a charge.

The only wedding memories you’ll have are the ones you have in your head. Your plans to share images of your wedding with your friends and family who couldn’t attend are shattered. Your wedding will still be beautiful, but you’ll be disappointed at not having the photos and video you had wanted.

That’s why you need to hire a professional. You want someone who has state of the art equipment that is in perfect operating condition and a backup camera just in case something happens. You’ll also be pleased to know that your videographer not only knows how to use every capability of the camera, but is also a very creative artist.
It takes a special eye to see the possibilities for each segment. Knowing which angles are best, what kind of filters should be used, and selecting the best lens settings to get the right results are skills that you’ll find only in a professional camera operator.

So don’t settle for mediocre video skills and equipment. Take some time to find the best possible videographer you can find so that you’ll have the results you truly desire. You will be very glad that you did!

Thank you Pedro & Katrina for having us film your wedding!

Here’s their 5 star review of us!
As soon as my husband and I decided on Maui I googled Maui Videographers and came across Jordan and the Hi Focused website. I was thrilled when the Hyatt presented them as a preferred vendor in the wedding planning guide! After convincing my husband that Jordan’s footage was some of the best I had seen and this would be completely worth it; I contacted Jordan to book him and it was one of the best decisions we made. Jordan was very communicative with us through emails and phone calls while we worked out details. We had a call with him a few days before where he reviewed details of our wedding day and provided us with his professional advice on what would work best for our schedule and location. Jordan completely blew me away on the day of the wedding. He and his team arrived early and ready to work almost immediately. Jordan was really great with our photographer team and was great at communicating what he was doing and why. He helped put me at ease and his team really helped ease my husband’s stage fright. Every shot was well thought out and coordinated and the footage was amazing! We booked the team for 4 hours and we stayed right on track the entire time – in large part due to Jordan and his team.We fell in love with our wedding trailer! And we just received our documentary footage and raw footage package this week. The packaging was secure and very nice looking as well! We loved loved loved our wedding video!

Mahalo Angel & Kenneth  for having us be your Maui Wedding Videographers!

Here’s their 5 star review of us
Our search for a cinematographer began a year before our big day on June 28 2017 at Gannon’s in Wailea. After reviewing all other companies wedding videos in Maui, it was clear that HiFocused was the number one choice for us to shoot our video. Email communications were great from the beginning when we inquired about Jordan’s services. As we got closer to the date Jordan recommended some changes to the proposed timeline to try to fit all of our requested shots. On that day Jordan and his team showed up early to our condo unit. They were easy and fun to work with. At the ceremony site, they worked well with Cheynice of Karma Hill Photography and not getting in each other’s way (as they also worked with each other before). In just 2 weeks after the wedding, Jordan sent a link to our completed Wedding video!! The composition, music, highlights of tea ceremony, cake cutting, sunset beach video, drone videos and the ceremony were all amazing. We showed the video at our banquet a month later back home and all of our friends and family loved it! If you are marrying in Hawaii (especially in Maui), we highly recommend HiFocused as your cinematographer. Mahalo, Angel and Kenneth


Maui, Hawaii Wedding Film, Olowalu

The bride and groom had their beautiful destination
wedding ceremony at the St. Theresa’s Church in Kihei Maui.

It was a beautiful evening with all their closest family and friends,
also John and Amanda’s first dance was really impressive
and the dancing following it was high energy and a blast to film.

Ritz Resort Kapalua, Maui Wedding Video

Weddings have always been special events. Just look at this amazing wedding video at Ritz Kapalua, Maui Hawaii.
As you can see in this video of Michelle & Keith certainly enjoyed their celebration!
The venue is splendid and all of the careful planning is evident. What a memorable wedding day!
Weddings take a lot of preparation, from flowers to candles, and from the reception venue to arrangements for family and other guests. There’s the dress for the bridesmaid and the outfits for the groom and his best man.
And of course, there is the bride’s dress. The Ritz Carlton Resort wedding ceremony was amazing and full of emotions: laughter and tears and smiles. The reception that follows is filled with the sounds of the guest cheering for the newlyweds. Eventually, however, the day will end the only thing the couple has are the memories.
Most newlyweds spend hours and hours, going through hundreds of wedding photos. It seems that everyone has a camera on their cell phone. The selection of photos available are varied. They are shared with guests who were at the wedding and with those who were unable to attend. But while those photos serve as wonderful reminders, nothing captures the awe and joyfulness of that special day better than a professionally produced wedding video.
A high-quality video, recorded by a trained, professional video artist, will give you a lasting memento that allows you to share with others every aspect of your wedding day. You’ll also see the look in the eyes of the groom as he watches his wife-to-be coming towards him. Through the magic of video, viewers will be able to get a sense of the emotions and wonder of the celebration. In addition to the amazing visual images, a video can also capture the sounds of each special moment. You’ll hear the bride and groom as they exchange their vows. If there is any special music sung by friends or family members during the ceremony, you will have a recording of that to share also. By having a reputable wedding videographer in attendance at your marriage celebration, you can focus your attention on the important things. Your hired camera will take care of creating a beautiful video that will document every important moment. Hiring and scheduling a qualified videographer is probably one of the most important preparations you can make as you plan that special day. Make it one of the very first things you do. You’ll be so very glad that you did! Enjoy watching this beautiful wedding video we shot at the Ritz Kapalua Maui.

Congratulations to Michelle & Keith on their awesome Maui Wedding!

Here’s their 5 star review of us!
Jordan is so much more than a standard wedding videographer, he’s extremely talented and has an eye to capture the emotion of your big day. Jordan and his team filmed our wedding on May 5, 2017 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Our wedding planner highly recommended him and she nailed it. We had a few emails and a phone call before our big day. Jordan is extremely detailed and organized. He caught a few things in the schedule that we tweaked due to his feedback. My husband is a pilot and saw that Jordan does drone footage so that alone sold him. Jordon is very personable and a nice guy. On the day of the big event, Jordan and his team were on time and were fun to film with. The day went perfectly. He knew the property very well and kept us moving to capture the best lighting. His drone footage was Jaw dropping especially at the end on Lava point. After 3 weeks, Jordan emailed us the link to view our video. The music selection, shots, voiceovers, scenery, and aerial coverage were perfection! We both had tears watching it and my husband never gets emotional. I’ve shared our wedding video to many friends and family that weren’t able to attend our wedding since it was a small destination wedding. Everyone always says this is unlike any wedding video they’ve ever seen and we usually always get tears ;). I love how he cuts it to be 7 minutes so it makes it easier to share with friends. He does give you the all the raw footage that you and your parents would want to see. Many of our friends over the years decided against hiring a videographer and afterwards every single one of them regretted it. Your wedding is one the most important and expensive day of your life, after it’s over all you have is the video and photos. And the video is so much more personal. Select Jordan to film your once in a lifetime moment, I promise you will not regret it. We can’t thank Jordan and his team enough. Mahalo ~Michelle & Keith

Wedding Film

Here’s the couple’s great 5 star review of us too!
During the wedding planning process, I placed a lot of emphasis on the video. In this in age, the video is how we are most likely going to share our memories with our friends and family. I worked closely with Jordan and was very specific about how I wanted the final product.
Jordan met every request and exceeded my expectations. The video brought back all of the emotions of the wedding, captured artistic details, played with speeds and lighting perfectly. Not only is the video beautifully visually, he was able to capture the emotional aspect of the wedding as well.
I would highly recommend jordan to anyone looking for a talented videographer.


Hotel Wailea Maui Wedding Film / Dahee & Chris

Dahee & Chris could have gotten married without having the video made, but then they would never have been able to enjoy sharing their special day with all of those friends and family members. Imagine all of the benefits of having a professionally crafted video of your wedding day. Sure, there are all of those photographs, but they never seem to show the wonder and splendor of the event.  The bride and groom’s amazing wedding day was at Hotel Wailea, Maui.

However, a video can provide all of that and more. In fact, nothing can capture the mood of the wedding better than a skillfully made video. You’ll be able to see the bride in all of her splendor as she is escorted through the gathered crowd. Then there’s the expression on the groom’s face as he sees his enchanting bride approach. That’s something only a video can provide.

An experienced videographer will also know how to capture the beauty and splendor of the wedding venue. You’ve made special plans to be married in that location, so you will certainly want to have a recording of that as well.
Don’t forget the audio portion of the video. You’ll enjoy listening to each other as you share your wedding vows and when you here the wedding official announce you as husband and wife.

You’ll celebrate at the reception with all of your guests, so it will be important to have the videographer invited. It will bring a smile to your face as you listen to the music while you watch the two of you dancing together for the first time as a married couple. You might also enjoy listening to the toasts made by your guests. And then there’s the cutting of the wedding cake. A photograph can never capture that moment like a video will. Your wedding planner will take care of all of the preparations, but you might want to check that a videographer has been contacted and scheduled well in advance. These skilled professionals are in high demand, so don’t wait until it is too late. Put it at the top of your planning list.

All the best and congratulations to Dahee & Chris at Hotel Wailea, Maui!

Tasha & Colby, A Maui Wedding Film at Gannon’s Wailea.

Here’s the couple’s great 5 star review of us too!
Jordan and his team deserve 6 stars if that was an option 🙂 First of all, Jordan is extremely talented and uses amazing drone technology that helps to make the videos extremely personable and allows you to feel like you were there and felt the breeze from ocean/saw the surroundings, etc (you can check out the samples on his website of his work, which you will fall in love with). This was one of the biggest reasons we hired him, since not all of our family was able to make it all the way to Maui from CA and Europe we wanted them to feel like they didn’t miss out. Additionally, Jordan and team were extremely professional, and were able to capture all the special moment but not make us feel like we had someone with a camera in our face all day 😉 Also, Jordan helped to give us our wedding video within 20 days of our wedding (most would have taken a few months) and allowed us to quickly share it online – and sent us a beautiful wooden box/flash drive with our wedding film and full days coverage on a flash drive. Again, highly recommend to anyone that would like to hire a Cinematographer!


Maui Wedding Videographer, Olowalu

Your wedding will be beautiful and fun, but it will pass. A wedding video gives you something to look back on and return to over the years. Relive the day. Experience laughs and joys you may have missed. Remember guests who stood by you. Hi Focused videography can share your intimate day with you and document it for you.

As you enter into a lifelong covenant as a couple and family unit, the celebrations stretch far beyond you. Your friends, family and loved ones have waited for this day with you. All have come together in a beautiful, romantic venue to celebrate all the love in your life. You will look back on your audience to see them overwhelmed with emotion and happiness.

A wedding’s smallest details add up to a powerful display of each couple’s own unique values and personality. You have spent months scouting the right venue, attire and decorations. Your wedding video gives you the chance to relive these choices of a lifetime.

The special look of your wedding is a creation of many people’s ideas and thoughts coming together. Your wedding video cinematography captures these decisions in a moving portrait. Over and over, you can enjoy your brilliant bouquets, colorful centerpieces, bridal party style and, of course, the bride’s showstopping wedding gown.

We consider the environment we shoot in when we create your professional, high-definition wedding video. Beach nuptials bring out the spectacular sky and gorgeous landscape as your two surprise guests. A ceremony under the stars transforms your wedding day into a classy, fairy-tale wedding night. A place of worship lends spellbinding architecture and ornate details to the background as you consecrate your union.

Your bridal party symbolizes the people you count on most in life. These men and women surround you in unity and loving support. We pay special attention to these people by your side, include their staged moments and capture them at their most candid. When children attend your wedding, the magic increases. Our videographers know how to come down to their levels and make sure to fit them in, too.

A jam-packed wedding video means your day will never pass. Hi Focused crystallizes the entrances, the vows, the ring exchange, the bouquet toss, the cake-cutting, your first dance as a married couple and more. Our final videos feel like a friend who walked along as you reached your wedding day milestones one by one.

Hawaii, Maui Professional Wedding Videographer

When I was asked to describe the one thing I loved most about Apryl & Rob’s wedding, I would say it was the beautiful, natural backdrop that only a wedding in Maui, Hawaii could provide. There were other things that were amazing, but the setting was without doubt the most memorable.

I’m sure they’d agree that the wisest thing they did regarding their wedding was to hire a real, professional videographer. This way they had someone they could trust to take all of their special memories and capture them in a video that they would cherish for the rest of their lives.
It was their wedding coordinator who gave them the idea. She explained all of the benefits of having a professional to take care of recording their special occasion, rather than relying on a friend or some unskilled amateur. She was also able to provide them contact information for one of the most experienced videographers in their area.

So as you begin making plans for your marriage ceremony, be certain to ask your wedding coordinator for suggestions on hiring a videographer. A true professional will have made videos of hundreds of weddings. He will also have the best equipment available. Because of his state-of-the-art camera and accessories, you can be guaranteed to get the best quality video production of your wedding you could ever imagine.

Of course, experience isn’t just about how to operate a camera. A talented operator also knows how to achieve the best images with the proper amount of lighting, the correct angle, and working with the client.

Perhaps some of the most interesting scenes you’ll want to share with friends and family involve the reception. It can include your first dance as a married couple, the cutting of the wedding cake (and all the fun that goes into feeding a slice of it to each other), and the throwing of the bouquet to a waiting group of bridemaids.

These are memories that you will want to share with each other for years to come. So when you’re making the preparations for your special day, be sure to include hiring a skilled, professional videographer. It will be one of the smartest choices you can make.

But don’t wait until the week before the wedding! Be sure to make arrangements with your videographer well in advance. Their schedules fill up quickly, and you don’t want to be disappointed by having to settle for second best. Put it at the top of your ‘to-do’ list. You’ll be glad you did!

Here’s the couple’s amazing 5 star review of us too!
Having HI Focused Cinematography capture our wedding day was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Please do yourself a favor, and don’t look any further. Their work alone speaks for itself. I went through over 10+ videographers on the Big Island, and none of them offered what we wanted. Being a videographer myself in real estate, I had extremely high expectations. I finally came across HIFocused and NEEDED to have them capture our wedding. Though Jordan and the team are based in Maui, they flew down to the Big Island to join us on our special day. I’ll be honest… this was a huge investment for us, but it was the best investment we ever made! Their work is AMAZING!!! Our trailer and feature film blew us away! So STUNNING! We can’t and won’t stop re-playing them. We are saving to watch our extended documentary for our first anniversary. Jordan is VERY professional and talented. He is very responsive to your texts/emails/concerns. He and the team have so much creativity and passion. Jordan takes his craft very seriously, but they definitely made us feel comfortable during our wedding day. Even after the wedding, we had so many editing requests, and Jordan accommodated EVERY request we made and delivered our films earlier than expected. To have such a beautifully crafted film to look back on for years and to share with our family is truly priceless. Their work is ART. And to mention, we have all the raw footage they captured. Very few creatives give away raw footage to their clients. This just attests to how good Jordan and the team are. They exceeded our expectations. Please… if you are looking for high-quality, cinematic, inspiring video work produced by a highly-professional and passionate team, let HIFocused capture your wedding day. HI Focused Cinematography will certainly deliver!
