Here’s their amazing 5 star rave review of us!
After booking the Four Seasons Maui as our wedding venue, my husband and I knew we needed to get Hi Focused to do our videos after Four Seasons sent us some example wedding videos produced by them. Hi Focused is the best of the best and it’s no contest between them and other videographers on the island.
We booked their “Short Film” packages, which included 5 hrs coverage, an 8-min video, all raw footage, and 2 shooters + assistant. We ended up booking an extra hour of time just to make sure we wouldn’t be rushed the day of the wedding and so they had the chance to capture everything. Looking back, we are so happy we booked that extra hour! The wedding day was so relaxed and fun–glad we had the extra cushion in our timeline.
About a week before, Jordan and I touched base to go over everything and finalize some details. He asked detailed questions about things I wouldn’t have considered, just to make sure they were ready and could capture all of the details. He is a total professional who knows his stuff.
On the wedding day, Amber arrived to do my filming; Jordan was with my husband. Omg. Amber was a riot. She was so much fun to work with and was hilarious–it seriously relaxed me so much and I was constantly laughing. She definitely made me feel more comfortable, and according to my husband Jordan was also great to work with.
The whole team blended in so well and had great suggestions above and beyond the “must capture” list to truly make our day/video unique. Anna Kim was our phenomenal photographer and she & HiFocused worked together so well. They’ve worked together a million times so they coordinated well. It’s like the one-two punch of photo & video awesomeness.
I was also surprised at how small the cameras were. I think I was expecting more of like a movie camera and that everything we did would be staged.That really wasn’t the case at all. They gave some instruction on what to do for the camera, which was very helpful (pro tip: walk slowly, haha), but they mostly just let us do our thing and be ourselves. All of their equipment seemed compact and hi-tech (they even had a drone to capture aerial footage on the beach!). We shot a few important moments more than once to get it just right, but it wasn’t obtrusive. We appreciated they just wanted to get the shot done perfectly. Nothing was forced and everything felt pretty natural.
We cannot wait to see how the video turned out–we know it will be amazing! We are so glad we prioritized photography & videography in the budget, because you just end up missing so much on the wedding day. For me, I basically had tunnel vision and it felt like no one besides my husband and I existed. It was the most peaceful and relaxing day of my life, and we wanted to be able to relive it again and again through the photos and video, and see what we missed while we were busy kissing on the beach.
HI Focused is the epitome of professionalism and quality. Booking them was on the best decisions we made for our wedding. HI Focused is a dream vendor and we couldn’t be more grateful to have them. THANK YOU JORDAN & HI FOCUSED!!!
