DO NOT use Digital Expressions!

Our wedding was held Fall Season 2014. The owner Kai told us our video would be ready by March 2015.

It is now March 2016 and still no wedding video. We have tried to contact Kai countless times, and the only response we got was "Sorry we've been really busy. Thank you for your patience. "

Over $2000 spent and absolutely nothing to show for it. Filing a complaint with the BBB and contacting lawyers in Hawaii.

Went to a wedding expo in 2014, where I started my journey in search of vendors for my wedding. Received an e-mail from Digital expression stating that I won $300 gift certification off their package. At that time, I was in the process from moving to HI to WA and needed to find vendors before leaving the islands because my wedding was still being held in Oahu. Kai was pretty easy and laid back to talk too. Met up with him at Starbucks and we was able to talk about the wedding packages, which I was glad because he was able to go into detail about the package and the al carte items they had available. They was able to save me money on photo booth, videography, and photography which was great! I was also able to look into samples of their photo albums, photography, same day edit video, and slide show. Which then and there, I wanted to hire them for my wedding. I also loved the fact that their company was trying to work around my budget, that he set up a monthly payment plan that worked well with me prior to my wedding since I had about a year before my wedding.
The day of my wedding, there was a group of them (I cannot remember their names), but they were great to work with. We were late for my wedding, but they tried to capture every moment of that day. The workers was easy going and I am not much of a photogenic person, but they were great in cueing me on what to do. I also got the same day edit incorporated in my package, which was amazing. I was worried about it at first, but when I saw it after my slide show I was pretty amazed; I loved my slideshow too. I can't wait to see my photos and video when it comes in, I am sure it will be great!

Thank you again Digital Expressions for capturing memorable moments of our special day! It was a pleasure working with you guys! I will definitely recommend you guys again.

During our process of planning our wedding, we had done our ground work and attended a few workshops and expos. We ended up winning a GC from one of the expos for Digital Expressions - and after meeting with Kai and looking through the website, we decided to book them. We had them do our full day including photography, videography, and photobooth - which was really convenient. Included was also an engagement photo shoot which we did with Eric - and those photo's were quickly received after the shoot and the photo's were goregous (we showcased a few at our wedding reception as well). Day of, the team was prompt and professional - there were a group of them that came with Eric and Kai. For our package, we also chose a same day edit and skit as part of our package - and honestly, both came out fantastic - everyone was really excited to be able to relive the ceremony, and we got a LOT of compliments on our skit video. Kai was really great to work with the entire time during our planning - sometimes it takes a bit for him to respond back - but he does end up getting back to you. My husband and I enjoyed working with Kai and Eric and the rest of the team - and would look to use them again for other future life events as well.

Kai and Kiku we're our videographers this past weekend for our wedding. They both provided an amazing service and couldn't be happier. I appreciated their behind the scene actions and played off of what the photographer was doing so they very rarely asked us to repeat a shot. They made us feel very comfortable and I didn't feel like a camera was in my face the entire time. With the package we purchased, it included a same-day edit video. Within a few hours, they put together a beautiful highlight of our day...from getting ready to the ceremony. Our guests were so impressed with the product and so were we!

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS VENDOR - UNETHICAL & UNPROFESSIONAL

Decent price, but received what we paid for; poor communication prior to wedding; gentleman that showed up wasn't professional in attire or mannerisms; our pictures were COMPLETELY overexposed; our pictures were provided to us (2) months late via Dropbox and (13) months later, we still haven't received the DVD of our supposedly re-worked pictures.

My husband and I just got married a week ago from today and we hired Digital Expressions for our videography services. Part of the package we got included a same-day-edit video, which was shown at the reception for our guests to see. We were more than happy with the video and our guests had nothing but good compliments to say as well. What we personally liked about Digital Expressions videography services was their style of shooting/editing. Compared to other companies that we've explored, Digital Expressions creates their video to be more cinematic like, which means it's gives the viewers the opportunity to really take in the moment that is being captured. They are VERY good at capturing those special moments throughout the wedding day.

While watching their videos you can't help but feel like you were there and experiencing all the emotions, such as joy, happiness, excitement, and love, that are felt on a wedding day. My only regret is that I didn't hire them for the entire day. I would highly recommend that you hire them for a full day so when you get your final wedding video, you'll have moments captured from the getting ready , the ceremony, and the reception.

After reviewing other videography websites, my Fiancé and I decided to go with Kai and Digital Expressions to do the videography for our wedding. Kai recommended we do a Love Story to be shown on our wedding day. We did not feel very confident with our interviews as we both dislike being the center of attention, but the staff at Digital Expressions made it into something wonderful. We received so many positive comments from guests at the wedding. Digital Expressions also did a same day edit of our wedding that was amazing!!! We are waiting anxiously to receive the longer version of the video from our wedding!!! They are very busy, so you have to wait for a response from them sometimes, but they are professional and the end product is wonderful.

The other reviewers who say Kai and his team are unobtrusive aren't kidding. We had a 50 person wedding and I literally had people asking - "Did you guys have a videographer there? I don't remember seeing one." We had 2-3 cameramen with equipment - they captured all the right shots without impeding the experience or getting in the way. They worked really well with our photographer and the end result was pretty spot on given our budget and tight timeframe (4 hour package). I opted not to capture video of us getting ready and rather focused on the main event.

If you are really keen on getting a video ASAP go with the Same Day Edit. We were married on April 19, and got our video around Thanksgiving. The contract states roughly 4-6 months turnaround time, so I had no issue there. It was just in the follow-up. I emailed several times and had my planner also reach out for an estimated time frame once we reached the 6 month marker. I understand they are are a small business and things get hectic, but it would have been nice to have just an update. Even if the update was that things were delayed. All in all, a great value though and I'm so glad we have this video to remember our Big Day!

Having a destination wedding in Hawaii, Kai made our lives very easy coordinating all the shoots and answering any questions we had. He was always so quick to respond whether by text or by email. Outstanding same day edit put together very professionally and to the highest quality! We can't stop getting complements on our video. I would recommend Digital Expressions to anyone having an upcoming wedding.

What can I say about Digital Expressions.. but that they are absolutely amazing. When we first started browsing around for a videographer, we didn't know what to expect but that we had a budget, and wanted the video to be entertaining for our guests, capturing every moment. We went to the Wedding Cafe and met with a number of vendors but most were too overpriced or wasn't able to accommodate what we envisioned. After meeting several vendors, we recieved an email from Kai stating we had won a certificate from the Wedding Cafe. We met Kai and he was so laid back and reassured that everything we wanted- lovestory/music video incorporating photos, SDE, and full highlights. What we had asked for would have costed $5000+ but they were willing to work with our budget... providing options to pay after the wedding. When we finally shot our lovestory, we were a little hesitant and worried that they weren't gonna capture what we envisioned. However, Kai reassured us not to worry and his editor was great. On our wedding day.. Kai wasn't able shoot because he had an injury limiting him to stay at the wedding to help. You would think I would be worried, but I wasn't. I trusted him completely and when all was said and done, the lovestory and SDE came out perfectly. It was what we envisioned and more. All my guests raved how entertaining our lovestory/ music video was and how the SDE was beautiful. We can't thank them enough. I would highly recommend them above all the pricey videographer/ cinematographers in Hawaii... they will not disappoint!
