My husband and I had a destination wedding and decided on Pure Media Hawaii from a recommendation from a friend. It was the best decision we made! The service from Sean, Brandan and his team was perfection! Every single question was answered and always so promptly. They did so... Read More much from there end to catch that perfect shot.

Pure Media Hawaii is the overall total package when it comes to wedding photography and videography. We planned our wedding from Pennsylvania which made it difficult finding a photographer but I knew Pure Media was the one with their quick responses to emails and... Read More professionalism. Sean and Brandan were amazing to work with the day of the wedding. They were very flexible with our schedule and made sure to capture all the pictures and special moments we requested. They definitely went above and beyond our expectations. I can tell you first hand that you definitely get what you pay for with Pure Media. We are so happy that we budgeted more money towards our wedding photography/videography because at the end of the day that is all you have left to remember the day (which flies by way to fast)! We hired Pure Media for all day photo/video service and they literally stayed with us ALL day from getting ready to the reception dancing! Words cannot thank Sean and Brandan enough for their beautiful work and awesome service! If you are looking for the BEST, look no further!

We hired Pure Media Hawaii to do our engagement shot as well as the day of our wedding. With all the pictures we received from our engagement were just beautiful especially the photos on the day of our wedding. So many great memories captured. Their team is really good at... Read More working with you even when on a time limit and they are still able to capture the greatest pictures. We got the package that offers videography as well but since I didn't request the mini highlight in the beginning we have not received it yet but I am sure it will be amazing just by the photos we received. My husband and I are grateful that they are still willing to create our mini highlight at such a last minute notice. If you are looking for excellent photos for your big special day I will would highly suggest this team. Mahalo!!

I ordered a wedding package through Pure Media back in December 2016, the wedding photos taken by Branden we're beautiful, we also enjoyed our 5 minute video clip, although our wedding video was promised to us within 12 weeks of the wedding date, and we did't receive our wedding... Read More video until 23 weeks and this was after the fact we called Sean and Branden weekly for an updated status on when our video will arrive. It has also not been 25 weeks and we haven't received our photo book. Once our video arrived, we were stoked to watch it,we spent a good amount of money to hire a good, professional company so we knew our video would turn out awesome! My husband and I planned our entire wedding from decorations, to special touches, such as a balloon release for my father whom passed away from cancer 1 year prior to me getting married. The video did not capture any of my special tables, or touches that I put so much time and effort in doing for my wedding, they also missed the release for the balloons going in the air. Also, most of my video was with a stand still camera causing people to get in the way of the footage, and also missing certain captures by the camera being put on a tri-pod versus an actual camera man catches all of the special events. They also failed to capture any of my guest, how will I remember years from now who attended my wedding? I also did a special children's ceremony for combining our blended family and they failed to miss my children's faces and expressions when saying our speeches to them. It gets worse, during the speeches ( I had 4 on film) they added a blacked out screen to separate each speech, but the screen stays black while the speech has started and your sitting waiting for the person's face to show up on the screen. I will only have one wedding, and was very disappointed in several lost memories that they failed to capture, along with a video that was poorly put together, with bad timing on screen displays, stand still camera and some blurry screens. I emailed Sean and Branden our concerns in hopes that they could fix our video footage and possibly give us a partial refund for all of the inconvenience. The worst part was they have no customer service, and don't see the importance of making their clients satisfied. They are completely disregarding our concerns and pretty much telling us oh' well deal with it this is how we do business. I do not recommend Pure Media for any videography. Although, I do not want to trash them entirely, as Branden did a great job with our photos.

Pure Media Hawaii was a pleasure to work with, my husband and I couldn't thank them enough for their amazing work. Communication is important when planning a wedding, Sean and Brandon were prompt on clarification and answering all our questions. Emails were always answered... Read More within the same day. On our wedding day, Sean and Brandon were easy going and approachable. They worked according to our timeline, which was a plus. I did my fair share of researching various videographers and I must say, I feel very fortunate to have found Pure Media Hawaii.

Memories Captured By Two Of The Best Photographers!

Reviewed on 8/18/2013 Julie S

We were referred to Sean and Brandan from our wedding planner, and I must say I was a little iffy. Being that I tend to scope businesses on Yelp first and could not find them on Yelp. But my husband and I decided to take a chance and I must say, it was one of the best decisions... Read More we made. My primary contact in the beginning was with Sean. He was very professional, answered all of my questions, and I had the opportunity to see some of their work. We were very impressed. Since, we are from the Bay Area, I had the opportunity to go to Hawaii a month before we got married. Best decision I made. After meeting with Sean and Brandan, I knew for sure we made the right decision to hire them for our video and photography. We even decided to hire them prior to our wedding, for a family photo shoot. During our family shoot we worked with Brandan and his wife Kristian. They worked well with each other and even got our son to smile. Brandan even asked if we wanted to do some photos with just my husband and I, which I was not expecting. A big plus in my book, but an even bigger plus, he was able to email us a picture that night, so we could use at our wedding. Wedding day came, and they both arrived earlier then I was expecting, but a huge plus! Brandan and Sean synced well with each other, there were times, that I did not even know that they were still there, since they kind of did their own thing of capturing our dresses, and random shots, which I loved. I was kind of worried, that we would not be able to fit in all of the photos, since we needed to move our ceremony time earlier, but the guys succeeded in capturing our special moments. Even when it looked like it was going to rain in Ko'Olina, the guys were willing to wait it out, since I really wanted sunset photos, and once again they succeeded. I would recommend them if your looking for two of the nicest, professional easy to work with guys. They worked around our budget and were able to deliver beautiful photos and a video that captured our special day. They will always be our go to guys, when we need photos done in the future of our family. Thanks again, for capturing our best day ever!
