What an incredible day that worked out beautifully at Kukuiula!
I should mention that Hurricane Lane was hitting Kauai on
Ben & Amanda’s scheduled wedding day
so they moved it a few days early very last minute.
We found out about the change the day before
the wedding so me and my shooter flew out that night!
The forecast was for rain but the weather cleared with
epic lighting and an incredible sunset.
It’s crazy how it all worked out and how epic their wedding day turned out!!!
Thank you, Amanda & Ben for having us film your awesome wedding day!
Here’s their amazing 5 star rave review of us!
JORDAN IS THE BEST! First off, they’re kind, professional, awesome to have around for your special day (they get all their shots, but you almost don’t know they’re there), they go above and beyond in every way from getting your notes before the wedding, to the day of, to editing your film, and if something unexpected comes up (like a hurricane did for our wedding!) they do whatever they can to still make everything perfect (like flying out days early for a wedding that was rescheduled for 2 days sooner, and succeed!). They know what they’re doing, you can trust 100% that your video will be amazing and better than you could’ve ever imagined. When I first started planning, I wasn’t even sure if I wanted a videographer, I thought a photographer would be enough, and that if we got a videographer we would go with the least expensive option. As planning continued, and I kept watching reels for other videographers, my opinion started to changed, and I realized that I would probably regret not spending more money for quality. In hindsight, after having chosen Hi Focused, who are the best videographers in Hawaii, I 100% agree not to skimp when choosing a videographer, and would hire Hi Focused again in a heartbeat. Your wedding day goes by fast, hiring a great photographer is also very important, but they don’t capture the moments the same way a video can, especially with the speeches, the laughter, dancing, the emotion in your eyes, the sounds of your friends and family cheering and clapping after your first dance. I watch my video every week and never get tired of it. I work for an A-list director in Hollywood, and it looks like an A-list director made my wedding video, the quality of their shots and their cameras are that good. Also, this didn’t happen to me, but I had a best friend who didn’t hire a videographer, and her photographer accidentally deleted all her photos =( Needless to say, that was devastating for her and her husband. If only she had hired a videographer, she could still have had her day captured on film to look back at and remember (and she’s not the only friend I’ve had that wishes they hired a videographer!). If you’re on a budget, I’d spend less money on flowers or decor, and spend more money on your videographer, it’s worth it (because our wedding was moved up 2 days we had to totally redo our decor, we had less flowers, no tent, less lighting, and basically a more simplified-though still very pretty-wedding, but the food and band and DJ were still excellent, and the wedding was perfect, and when I watch our video, I completely forget the stresses of moving the wedding, and just remember the pure joy of the day, and that’s due mainly to the fact of our perfect video). Also, when I watched other people’s wedding videos, I thought I liked shorter ones better, like the 4 minute ones, and if that’s all you can afford, then those are still great (my sister got married in Malibu and hers is 4 minutes and she loves it!), but we opted to get a longer video, and I really enjoy having the extra shots. I’d recommend 7 minutes or more if you can afford it. When it’s you on screen, you’ll never feel like it’s too long ha! In summary, if you’re getting married on any of the Hawaiian islands, I wouldn’t look anywhere else for a videographer, hire Hi Focused!
This was an amazing wedding at the gorgeous Four Seasons, Lanai.
Michlle and Yu were surrounded by their closest family and friends for their destination wedding
at one of Hawaii’s most beautiful wedding venues.
The couple exchanged touching vows and had heart felt speeches,
the scenery was breath taking and the decor was outstanding.
Thank you to the bride and groom for having us be your wedding cinematographers!
Your wedding day was incredible!

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
Today, couples can make their beautiful wedding day an everlasting document. Soul mates will relive their day forever with cinematic memories from a perfect wedding video. They may pass down a moving portrait of their ceremony and festivities to future generations.
Your moment of a lifetime crystallizes on film with Hi Focused. As your special guests, we appreciate your trust and are honored to celebrate with you. In respect to your big day, we hide behind experienced cinematography techniques and professional high-definition cameras.
Weddings are as unique and personality-filled as the couples who plan them. A cornerstone of our promise to you is attention to all the details that set your wedding apart. This includes the people who share your day. You will be delighted to look back to see how happy your elders, friends, bridal party and children felt on your big day.
A bride (and groom!) never forget the wedding gown and all its thoughtful touches: the neckline, intricate accents, train, veil and earrings. The dress may be heavy and multifaceted, or short and sweet. No matter what style she chooses, family and friends are honored to watch her handle herself with grace and poise.
For all the eyes on her, the bride never sees just how breathtaking she looks. From intimate closeups during her departure to a panoramic view of her entrance, a wedding video may be the first time a bride pauses to watch herself in action. She surely deserves it.
No couple arrives at a wedding venue by accident. Your right choice has meaning and purpose. Wonders of nature and a heavenly landscape accent your beach wedding by the sea. A place of worship lends a hallowed atmosphere to your nuptials. Your own home transforms into a paradise of romance, love and laughter. A novelty location tells the story of your relationship.
Your wedding day is an unforgettable forever, going until the last tearful hugs and waves goodbye to your guests. We understand how to maximize all kinds of lighting: misty dawns, sunlight, sunset, candlelight, the stars, chandeliers and disco balls too. Through our lenses, positive and powerful energy radiates from every centerpiece, bouquet and thematic accent.
We tell the full story of your wedding through a strategic mix of carefully-posed and assembled shots, with magical candid scenes. You will have the time of your life as your consecrate your union, now and forever.

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!
