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!

I have to say that the same day edit video was amazing and Kai is a very nice guy. BUT THAT'S IT. I normally don't like to write bad reviews but we are very disappointed. In this day in age it should not take almost a year to edit a video. We received the wedding video almost a year after our wedding. It was almost embarrassing to reply to friends and family when they were asking about it. For the most part, when we contacted Kai his response was slow. Yes, I understand that they may be busy, but we are all busy too; and we shouldn't be the ones making the first effort to follow up with them on the status. As a business, who's been in business a while, they should be able to manage these things. Because we paid in full upfront, we trusted they would do their part. If we only paid a portion of it, I'm sure this lag would not have happened. Yes, we did send in our final 3 songs a few months later but it should still not take almost a year to receive it! When we finally received the video the 3 songs weren't even on it! So why did we wait so long? All we kept getting was that "they were working on it, making adjustments" etc. We feel that they could have captured more parts of the wedding/reception, but rather the whole video was too short.
We went with a package deal with them for photography. I have to say I could have taken better pictures. The quality was terrible and our family pictures were not printable material. So basically there are no memorable pictures from the most important day of our lives to print.

Aloha ,

Kai and his team provided video for my wedding on October 19 and I have to say it was the best service I've seen. My family is in the DJ business and I've seen so much videos and video services. His quality of service was amazing they came on time to the house to start filming. They made sure to stand in place where they weren't in the way at all and was such a joy to have around. So patient with me considering I was running a little late to my ceremony. His Responsiveness was amazing considering he is quite busy. He always made sure to contact me in time. Professionalism was awesome always met up with me around my schedule and is willing to work with our budget. The Value was AMAZING everyone who attended my wedding and saw the video cried!!! I'm so excited to watch it again!! Lastly the flexibility I want to say Kai and his team has the best flexibility he made a financial plan for my husband and I which we were SO GRATEFUL for. He also gave us a Same Day edit with vows because our ceremony was short and I can't express how grateful we are for that!!! We love digital expression and we recommend them to everyone and anyone.

MAHALO NUI LOA Kai!!!!

The Digital Expressions team did a wonderful job capturing my husband’s and my wedding day on the beautiful big island of Hawaii in September. After originally deciding on another company, we were convinced to re-consider using Digital Expressions and are very glad we did. After speaking with Kai for over an hour regarding the company’s history, our preferences and desires of capturing our big day, and pricing, we felt very comfortable with our final decision. On the day of our wedding, the team was professional, shot footage from a variety of angles recording every special moment throughout the day, and even took part in external duties out of the kindness of their hearts. Our only concerns include being late on the big day, not responding as promptly as we had hoped via email when we had questions, and providing our day’s highlights video 3 months after our wedding day when we were told it would be ready in 2 weeks. However, when we did receive the day’s highlights video words cannot express how happy we were as they truly captured the beauty of every moment throughout the entire day. From footage of the ceremony from a high lookout point to zooming in on the intricate details of our attire and rings (and even Kai stepping in to help the groom straighten his tie, which so thoughtful), our video is absolutely perfect! We highly recommend Digital Expressions and appreciate all of their hard work recording and editing a video that will be watched again and again for a lifetime. It is absolutely amazing! We cannot wait to see the extended, full length video and highly recommend this team!
