Wow what an epic Maui proposal! Everything worked out so perfectly for this amazing engagement! Margaret-Ann had no idea. She just thought we were doing a video shoot of them, then Keith got down on one knee and popped the big question! And, of course, she said YES! 🙂 The logistics worked out beautifully. I organized the shoot locations and how it would all unfold. I even got to secretly mic Keith. This proposal took place at two of my very favorite locations to film on Maui! Message me for location details! 🙂

Heres’s their amazing 5 star review us!
The uncertainty and anxiety that came with COVID-19 created a new challenge for us when planning our wedding (I’m sure this is the same for everyone engaged). This is not to say that changing our wedding plan was the worst thing in 2020 because there were a lot of unfortunate events and losses that happened. But thanks to Jordan & his team at HI Focused, we were still able to make our wedding dreams come true, even if it meant we had a Zoom wedding ceremony and a drive-through reception. HI Focused was still able to capture the beautiful moments & emotions we had throughout the day and were so easy to work with, especially with all the safety & health guidelines due to COVID. (We also had postponed our wedding FOUR TIMES and each time I sadly informed Jordan of the change, he was more than willing to work it out with us and be as flexible as possible. We are so grateful for that!) When we received our final video & 1-minute teaser, my husband and I watched it together ASAP and I cried joyful tears because they went above & beyond our expectations. At first, I was scared that our wedding video wouldn’t be how I imagined it (dreamy, romantic, sentimental, etc.) because again, we had a Zoom ceremony with limited family present and a drive-through reception. But HI Focused NAILED IT in every way possible! It was dreamy, romantic, sentimental and so much more! My husband and I have been watching it non-stop since we got the video. They were able to capture all the emotions of that day perfectly and every time we watch the video, we get to re-live that beautiful and wonderful day all over again. We are so so grateful to HI Focused, Jordan, and Philip for their incredible service and understanding during these challenging times. 100/100 would recommend them!

Over the years I’ve been flying drones, I’ve had the opportunity to film some truly beautiful places and capture some amazing sights.
Here are just a few of my favorite drone shots over the years, locations include: Maui, Oahu, Kauai, New Zealand, Idaho & Pennsylvania. Enjoy!

The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua Maui Resort is my favorite wedding venue to film destination weddings on the West side of Maui. It’s a stunning Maui resort featuring many different ceremony and reception location options. The bride and groom can have their destination wedding ceremony at several beautiful location on the Ritz property. The Napili lawn is a great open space with a scenic ocean view backdrop. There’s lot of space for big ceremonies and it’s pretty close to the Anuenue Ballroom for their reception after the ceremony.

The Beach House is my personal favorite ceremony location, privately set away from the main resort and close to the water and beach for sunset shots following the ceremony. For the reception locations some wedding couples have their reception down at the Beach House or up at the two elegant ballroom locations, the Anuenue Ballroom or the Plantation Ballroom.

The ceremony location has a big open lawn with some shade and a good backdrop making the ceremony less backlit than some wedding venues which makes for better lighting.
The reception can be held adjacent to the ceremony location on another of their open lawn locations or up at their beautiful ballrooms. The beach in font of the property offers some gorgeous options for photo and video with the couple and there’s also pretty spots for a tropical green shoot on the hotel’s property.
