Maui wedding film / White Orchid Beach House

This stunning Maui wedding film was shot on Maui’s southshore at the White Orchid Beach house.
I love this private wedding venue, the beautiful coast, waves, private setting, great service and EPIC sunsets!
The colors really came out for this wedding day!
Thank you Diana & Will for having us be your Maui wedding film-makers!
Mahalo and congrats!!!

Here’s the bride’s mother’s amazing 5 star rave review of us!

My girl was getting married in a tropical paradise called Maui. Capturing these memories was paramount to me so hiring the right videographer was a high priority. I watched every video of every videographer available on island. HIFOCUSED and Jordan Nagasako were the best combination of all that I was looking for: stunning professional quality films in terms of video, audio and editing, incredibly emotional storytelling, having a commercial drone pilot license for those gorgeous flyovers, and awesome reviews. Jordan had worked with the wedding planner and the photographer before, and was very familiar with the venue, which was such a seamless bonus. He was also a consummate professional with a very personal touch, answering all my questions by email or on the phone himself so that I felt very comfortable working with him. After all my due diligence, I knew he was the one. Once he was chosen, Jordan sent a detailed questionnaire to make sure that he and his team were prepared and knew what shots my daughter wanted, and all the details of what was happening when. He came with 2 assistants and a ton of video and audio equipment so that he could get high quality video from different angles and sound for the ceremony and the toasts. Amazingly the whole team did their job so quietly and blended in so well you hardly knew they were there. It was a magical, whirlwind wedding with fabulous photographs, so the bar was set high. Three weeks after the wedding, Jordan said that there was so much good material did I want to do an 8-minute video instead of the 4-minute video and did I have priorities of what to include? I took a leap of faith and went with the 8-minute video. Seven weeks after the wedding we got the finished product. I was speechless at just how amazing the wedding video was, and he far exceeded all my expectations of what I might see! I couldn’t imagine what I would have cut out if it was half as long. What he produced was priceless and I will be forever grateful for his true gift to capture and combine such beautiful, joyful, and tender memories into such an intimate, unique story that included totally cool drone shots of the venue and a lovely soundtrack. I have watched it so many times already and I cry every time as I remember and then find new things to see and experience. I did find one small edit that I wanted, which Jordan fixed immediately and without charge. After all the worry, anticipation, and waiting, it was comforting to have Jordan to handle something so important to me with class and professionalism. I would hire HIFOCUSED and Jordan in a microsecond without any reservations.

Maui Ritz-Carlton Kapalua resort Wedding

Here’s their amazing 5 star rave review of us!

Like with all vendors that we had to pick for our wedding, I was determined to find the best cinematography for the best price. I initially reached out to HIFOCUSED a year before our wedding and inquired about their costs and services, but was hesitant to sign right away because it was a huge investment and I wanted to be sure we were making the right decision. I continued reaching out to other videographers and made my now husband watch countless videos with me from at least a dozen different videographers from Maui and even from other islands and the mainland. 6 months later, we signed with HIFOCUSED because I could not find anything even close to Jordan’s work. If you’re like me, I know you’ll do your research anyway and feel free to do so but I can guarantee you’ll come back around to book them. One thing we were truly blown away by and a bit surprised to see day of our wedding was how phenomenal the team (Jordan, Amber, Keanu) was. They literally ran the show, directed all the shots, and even told the photographer to get in there and take some pics of this or that because it was going to be amazing–and it not only showed in the footage and video we received from HIFOCUSED but also in the photos that we got from our photographer. I’m positive that it wouldn’t have been such without them. Jordan also took the initiative to speak with us about key details that we wanted so he and his team can capture and incorporate those moments into our video. Although this seems like something vendors should obviously do, in the rush of things a lot of vendors forget or bypass under pressure. I came to realize this from other vendors on the wedding day, but Jordan and his team didn’t drop the ball at all and that’s what you need from someone who will be playing such a big role in your wedding. If you watch the different vids posted on the website, you can gather that they’re all unique and made specifically from each couple’s request. Even after the event, Jordan was very open to our requests/modifications/edits. In the end, it feels really good to be taken care of and to get footage that really brings your wedding day back to life. The drone shots are also amazing. If we had to do it all over again, we’d sign HIFOCUSED again in a heartbeat.

Here’s their amazing 5 star rave review of us!

I can’t say enough good things about Jordan and his team! I first came across Hi Focused while wedding prepping on Instagram and YouTube. His YouTube videos and IG videos are beyond amazing and always made me teared up. I then contacted my wedding coordinator and was able to easily set up contact with Jordan. Booking was so easy, and I especially liked that he had a questionnaire to detail our likes & dislikes and specific requests. We had a couple of phone meetings prior to our wedding. On the day of the wedding, Jordan and his team (Amber and Kean) were so friendly and welcoming. They made the filming so natural and fun! I specifically wanted drone shots of us as a couple and of the whole wedding party in attendance, and they made sure to incorporate it with the best lighting. As it usually goes with weddings, we ran behind schedule but Jordan and his team were able to accommodate and film longer than scheduled in order to capture all our special moments. Turnaround period was super fast! It was 1 month for our 9 min YouTube video. The video was so overwhelmingly perfect, they truly know how to capture the best candid and raw moments of a wedding to compile into a heartfelt video. I am beyond happy with our wedding video! I had high expectations and they exceeded it all! I def recommend them! Bonus: they also offer a IG clip! And they mail you all the raw footage!

Maui, Hawaii Wailea Four Seasons Wedding Film

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!!!
