About this Vendor

Your Story with Heart

There's a reason you're getting married! It's because humans connect with other humans. It's hardwired into our DNA. Our brains produce oxytocin when we make connections with other people. Similarly, character-driven stories also cause the production of oxytocin. And it's this connection with characters in the emotional ebb and flow of a movie that the audience connects and is moved in wondrous ways. We create films with people at the center point, not some place (however beautiful it may be) or fancy aerial drone shots (although we do those too). We tell your authentic story that you will be remembered by for generations to come.

Great Videographer

Reviewed on 3/12/2014 Jessica B

Stephan is great to work with, he was able to work with me on a great package, and very responsive from the beginning to the end. Our wedding video turned out great, and much more affordable than other companies I've seen.

Necessary Addition

My husband and I wanted a very small intimate destination wedding with just immediate family and a few close friends. My dad suggested we find a videographer because footage from other weddings had always been a highlight. We bought the basic package and were told a live webcast... Read More would be posted after the wedding for only those people you wanted to share the link with. We considered not even doing this but so many family and friends were so excited to participate when we told them. My aunt got up at 1:30 am to watch the webcast at the earliest possible moment. We have been able to enjoy it ourselves and have found it to be one of the best purchases we made. Everything was easy, communication was quick and the price is really inexpensive for the quality and value of your purchase. We would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants a prized keepsake of this moment in their lives and the ability to let people who could not attend the wedding still partake in it!

It was so gratifying to know that our money was so well spent on his services and he really captured all the happiness and beauty of our wedding day, that we will be able to enjoy for a lifetime!

Stephan was absolutely amazing!!!! I absolutely wish I could leave more stars for him. I love the wedding video that Stephan created for us. It really captures our wedding day through beautiful imagery, great storytelling so we can relive our wedding day over again. Stephan was...

He went all out to make sure he got the best shots and stayed longer than we agreed on. I really felt that unlike other vendors, Stephan was truly an artist that was passionate about making our wedding day amazing. It showed with every second of our video. Thank you Stephan!!!!

We got married on Maui just last month, and video was something that we initially had not considered.

My husband and I got married in Oct 2016 at Makena Cove in Maui (beautiful and breathtaking hidden gem that is also a must-see!). We honestly weren't looking forward all that much to the video (and only because neither one of us is really that comfortable in front of the camera-... Read More we thought we would look a kind of awkward). We got the video and were seriously blown away by how great it is. Stephan edited the best, most natural looking, and flattering shots into our video. The music is perfect (we originally picked 2 songs, but they just didn't "go" with the video, so we asked him to change the music to his choice- we should have trusted him to begin with!), the entire ceremony is on it- which is perfect because we didn't have any family or friends come... not even our two daughters. We watched the video with our immediate family shortly after downloading it (about 1 month after our wedding) and our 6 year old cried so many happy tears it was unbelievable, which is a true testament to the emotion captured here. I can say, with 100% certainty, that this is the biggest bang for your buck and you will not regret hiring him!

We got married in Maui, HI at Olowalu Plantation House. On the day of the wedding, he made me and my wife feel very comfortable. He was very professional and friendly.

When we received our wedding video, me and my wife absolutely loved it. Stephan did such a great job helping us recollect our wedding day. My wife watched it so many times already and I was so glad that I chose Stephan him.
