Obviously, every Bride wants each detail of her wedding to be perfect. When picking a videographer, photographer, florist, etc. it can be scary because you want your vendors to care about your wedding day (and every little detail) as much as you do. Jordan takes the time... Read More necessary to hear what his customers want and he delivers, making you feel like you're his only client. His work speaks for itself and then to make it better he is great and easy to work with. Cinematography is clearly Jordan's passion and that truly shines through both in his professionalism and the work he is able to create. It was a pleasure inviting Jordan & his team to be apart of our special day and now we have a beautiful video that we will treasure forever.

I can't quite remember if we discovered HI Focused on our own or if the company was recommended to us first by our wedding coordinator. However, either way, we feel extremely blessed both to have found and chosen this company to be our cinematrography crew to document our... Read More awesome day. Cinematrography is appropriately titled, given this company does way more than just videography. They not only capture your day, but present it for you in a cinematographic type fashion to maximize your enjoyment. Jordan is exceptional to work with. He carries himself and his team with incomparable professionalism, prompt communication, purpose, and integrity. He is transparent in all of his transactions and fulfills his agreements promptly as personally stated. After solidifying our contract, he immediately sent us a recommended guidelines form to optimize the progression of our wedding day as flawlessly as possible. This was extremely useful in coordinating with the other vendors' recommendations. When mentioned his name to the other vendors, all of them said nothing but good things and that they enjoyed working with him, given they all have to "share" space when collecting their footage. Him and his team arrived to our event remarkably early, sharply dressed and were obviously ready to work, taking their craft very seriously. Then they proceeded to work tirelessly the entire time we designated in our contract. When it came time to create the videos, he completed and delivered the product earlier than the approximated deadline with everything functioning perfectly upon arrival. He even gladly incorporated specific footage of our day that we requested to be included in our videos. Hiring a professional videographer for a wedding can be viewed as fairly expensive, but we appoached the expense with acceptance, deciding that we preferred directing our costs on things with obvious longevity such as this. This has lead to us, and everyone else, to agree that after viewing our videos, that it was money very well spent. We thoroughly appreciate the product this company created for us and never tire to repeatedly watch and share our videos. We know there are many cinematrography companies from which to choose, however, you will not be disappointed in the product and expertise demonstrated by Jordan and the rest of his staff. We give Jordan and his company the highest recommendation for their services to anyone thinking, or knowing for certain, of hiring a cinematrography company for their wedding day. You will be extremely happy you did so.

My husband and I both hate being in front of the camera and quite frankly, are very awkward. However, I knew this day needed to be documented and I wanted the... Read More best. We definitely picked the right people. They made everything fun and natural. Even for us awkward folk they made it pretty painless.

When you have your wedding you hope for two things: the perfect wedding day and the most beautiful videos and photos to help you relive that experience. My wife and I were excited to be able to have HiFocused film our wedding. We had seen sample videos from so many vendors... Read More online, but found ourselves constantly coming back to their work. Their videos make you feel as if you're watching a cinematic movie. Despite the intermittent heavy rains that we had on our wedding day we felt like we had our perfect wedding, but we were also a bit nervous about how everything would look on film given the weather. I have to say, though, that my wife and I were stunned by how amazing our wedding film turned out. Jordan and the HiFocused team were wonderful to work with. They were kind, patient, and accommodating. You can tell by working with them that they are thinking about every detail, every angle and how to perfectly capture every moment. The final product shows that attentiveness and care. We could not have been happier with how everything turned out. If we had to go back in time and do our wedding over again I can confidently say we'd still choose HiFocused as our videographer without a second thought.

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... Read More nailed it. I also did my own research and the reviews spoke from themselves. Trust the reviews and select Jordon to film your wedding. I promise you'll be so happy you did. 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 with his team. He knew the property very well and when to keep up moving to capture the best lightening. 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. We couldn't believe how fast he turned it around especially after watching it and seeing how he included so many details and special moments. The music selection, shots, voiceovers, scenery, and aerial coverage were all 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 instead of some long boring video. He does give you the all the raw footage that you and your parents would want to see. He gives you everything including some funny outtakes. I also wore a mic and glad I did as it caught the audio really nicely. 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

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... Read More 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.

Jordan is the best videographer in the world and Hi Focused is the BEST! He went above and beyond to make sure I’d be happy with my wedding video that will last a lifetime! Jordan and his team did everything they could to make sure the video would be perfect and the way I... Read More wanted! Even as a very demanding and picky client myself, I’m highly satisfied with how the team handled everything before, on, and even after the wedding day. Before the wedding: The team was very professional and easy to work with. Jordan made sure all the things I’d like to have would be in the wedding video. My husband and I flew to Maui few months before the wedding and met with Jordan. He is friendly and easy-going. The day before the wedding, he called us and went over all the details thoroughly. On the wedding day: The team arrived early to set up the equipment and the team was well-prepared to work hard for that day. They started working right away, not wasting any second. Everyone on the team knew what they were supposed to do at all times. When there were some last minute changes to our First Look location and decided not to do First Dance in reception anymore, everyone on the team was very flexible, they quickly reacted to unexpected changes professionally. Our schedule that day was very tight, with everything planned out back-to-back, however, the team worked very well under pressure and delivered everything in a timely-manner, and in high quality! Since our ceremony and reception was hosted outdoor, they were so well prepared and brought stage lights for reception when the sky turned dark. They even worked overtime that night to make sure every requested shot from me would be met. Hi Focused worked very well with other vendors too like: my makeup and hair artists, photographers, florist, and wedding coordinator. After the wedding: Even after the wedding day, Jordan made sure he got all the things I wanted in the video exactly, the right music and shots, even if it meant they had to spend many hours to edit many times again and again just to make me happy. And boy, they made me the happiest woman ever when I finally got the final version of the video! It’s perfect! My husband and I have shown it to all our friends and families around the world. Everyone was so impressed with how professional and what an amazing job Hi Focused did for our wedding. Even the guests at our wedding were so highly impressed on how professionally the team handled throughout the day. All in all: My husband and I spent a lot of money in our wedding, but the one thing that was most worth it was hiring Hi Focused because flowers would die/alcohol+food+cake would be consumed, but this beautiful video will last a lifetime!! It’s so worth it to hire the best videographer to capture all the most beautiful essentials of your biggest day in your life. Every time we watch our video, it brings back all the happy memories and smiles of that day, and reminds me once again the meaning of marriage. All thanks to Hi Focused, the way they put together their video like: music selections, placing the right shots at the perfect timing of the video, and fitting everything with the theme accordingly, has successfully created a very emotional, touching, and beautiful video that my husband, I, and families will forever treasure. Jordan is so talented in what he does. If you want the best for your wedding day, look no further. He is the BEST of the BEST! Mahalo for everything Jordan!
