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!


Maui, Haiku Mill Wedding Film

Weddings have always been special events. As you can see in this video, Jenna & James certainly enjoyed their celebration!
The Haiku Mill, Maui 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 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 ceremony is 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. Perhaps there was a professional photographer.
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 film.
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.
By having a wedding cinematographer 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!

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.


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.

Here’s their amazing 5 Star review of us!
My wife and I were married on Maui at Sugar Beach Events of Hawaii in July of 2016. Selecting HIFocused as our cinematography team was one of the easiest decisions that we had to make. My sister had her wedding on Maui in 2014, and she chose Jordan and his team. After seeing the quality of their film, we knew that our search was going to be a short one. We contacted HIFocused and they were awesome from day one! Throughout our wedding planning, we spoke to Jordan over the phone and via email. He was always professional and had great advice for us. As we approached the wedding day, he checked in to see if there were any last minute updates. He wanted to make sure that we had the best product possible. On the wedding day, his team showed up early to capture the details of the beautiful venue. Three videographers were on site filming throughout the entire event. The drone made an appearance overhead during the setup and the celebration, but they parked it during the ceremony so as not to distract from the special moment. One of the things that impressed us the most was Jordan’s ability to work with the photographers. He knew when to take a step back and allow them to get “the shot”. After seeing the finished video, he didn’t miss anything. After the wedding, he contacted us and asked if we had any suggestions regarding music and specific shots for the film. We really felt like it was our video, and it represented our special day perfectly.When the editing was complete, Jordan sent us a note that the video had been uploaded to Vimeo. The ability to share it with friends and family was fantastic. Soon after, a package arrived in the mail that contained three things.
1) A USB flash drive with the seven minute video, and the longer 40 minute video that documented the entire day.
2) A hard drive with all of the raw footage from the entire day. The hard drive also had backup copies of the two videos.
3) Chocolate!
Working with Jordan and his team, I would recommend HIFocused to anyone planning a special event in Hawaii. There are plenty of HIFocused videos out there on Vimeo and YouTube to view. Once you fall in love with them, give Jordan a call. You won’t be disappointed!

Here’s their awesome 5 star review of us 🙂
When we were looking into photographers it was just such a clear decision to make. Right from the start Jordan was very professional and thorough in getting to know us and what we wanted captured on the day. His email correspondence leading up to the wedding was very prompt and he checked in multiple times to ensure the day went smoothly and he got the shots he wanted. On the day, his team were amazing – so friendly and they tried to capture everything without being noticed which not all photographers can manage. The quality of their work is awesome and Jordan was very open to all of my husband’s crazy ideas which is always a plus! They rocked!
