Isle Media knows how to entirely capture and encapsulate one of life's most important milestones. On top of at, having them cover our wedding was like getting my closest friends do it, only they'd magically learned how to shoot video and photos with incredible detail and quality.

When I first met Reese (lead photography) and Kyle (lead videography) and their team, I felt like I already knew them. They hung out with me and the groom's men while we got ready, ironed shirts, etc. It was like they were already part of the group, but it was also like they weren't even there at the same time.

I felt no pressure to change anything about what I was doing or how I normally would have acted. When they needed something, they asked, when they didn't, they were off filming whatever they thought was important, which isn't always the people. This ends up being extremely important stuff that you don't even think about. They record anything that they think might possibly bring back an important, wonderful memory and you don't realize it until you see the finished product.

They really know what they are doing. Most other places probably focus too much on the people, which is good, but also bad because then you miss the little things, like that bunch of flower petals that happened to form a heart, (which happened and I saw it and thought how great it was and then it turns up in the final product) amazing attention to detail and to what people might find important or enjoyable!

It was truly a fun, relaxing, and fantastic experience and they were so professional and friendly. Trust them to do their thing and you'll get all you could ask for and more!

Quality Of Service: Absolutely brilliant!

Responsiveness: We came from Japan and had only Wifi, no problem whatsoever!

Professionalism: Best of the best, IMO!

Value: Price has a kick to it, but once you see what you're really getting there's no doubt how good a value it is!

Flexibility: Olympic Gold Gymnast!

Planning a wedding from San Francisco was not easy. With no wedding planner and no friends or family from Honolulu, I relied a lot from yelp and google. I am so thankful to have run across Isle Media's page. I knew from the beginning that they had the kind of photography and videography style that we wanted for our wedding. The pricing was a lot more compared to what was available here in San Francisco. But I know a lot of people who say to really invest in good video and photo because it's really all that you have to remember the big day. And I am so glad that we went with them. With only 2 and a half months before the wedding, I was so lucky to have them available to shoot on our wedding day.

We had the same day edit in our photo and video package along with the monogram lighting.

Alan, Kyle and Reese, and the two others (sorry can't remember the names) were AMAZING! We had a wonderful time with them and highly recommend them to anyone who has any kind of event that needs some capturing. They even sent us preview photos within a couple of days. Now we're just waiting for the rest of our photos and video! And we're so excited to get them.

Thanks isle media! We love you guys! Y'all are amazing. Sending love from the SF Bay!

I first came across Isle Medias work by browsing through their same-day-edits which strongly influenced our decision to have them do photography and videography for our wedding. My Fiance is from Kona, so we were going to get married on the Big Island. The only problem was that they were located on Oahu, but Alan was so flexible and easy to work with, we were able to arrange for them to come and shoot our wedding.

First off, our initial contact was with one of their photographers, Reese, who was awesome. We worked on a stop-motion video, which was a first for Isle Media. For being a first time at something, it was very well executed. It portrayed all of the ideas we wanted to have incorporated into the video and we were able to play around with the stop-motion concept. We were very happy with the end result of the save-the-date stop motion video!

On the day of the wedding, the crew showed up on time, they were clearly organized, personable and professional. Our prior email conversations and phone conversations covered a lot of details of what we wanted to cover. They worked fast and efficiently. When it was time to show the same-day-edit video at our reception, we were extremely thrilled with the result of the end product! Their work speaks for itself when guests came up to us after the video in tears because of the touching moments that were caught on video. They incorporated the two songs we wanted to have which personalized the video even more. Isle Media even sent us preview photos and the link to the same day edit a couple of days later to share with friends and family, which we both appreciated!

When all is said and done, and wedding nostalgia hits, Isle Media will help you remember your beautiful wedding day by having the special moments captured that you will want to relive over and over again. I would definitely recommend their services! Thank you Isle Media!

Deciding to get married in Hawaii was a very easy decision. Coming from Scotland, we wanted to get married somewhere warm, somewhere with adventure and somewhere far away from home with only our closest friends and family.

We had to make a lot of decisions from the other side of the world which proved difficult on many occasions. The only easy decision was using Isle Media to capture our day. We were originally looking at photographers and videographers on Big Island (the island where we choose to get married) however none of them had the spark we were looking for. We then stumbled across videos of Isle Medias work on Vimeo. From that moment we knew we had found the perfect people to capture our special day.

We faced numerous issues throughout our planning process however Isle Media were the one stable factor – they were responsive, professional, listened to our requests and sounded like they loved their jobs. In order to help us feel comfortable (as neither of us had been in front of the camera before – let alone together), when we arrived in Hawaii we met the team that would be with us on our day.

The team was amazing and consisted of Kyle, Reese, Alan, Lester and Zairrah. Reese and Lester did the photography, Kyle and Alan did the videography and Zairrah did my makeup. She listened to what I wanted and never got annoyed or tired of me asking to try different looks – for that she is a star!

We had fun throughout the entire process and the highlight wedding video is absolutely amazing. It captured exactly what we wanted – fun and laughter. We are waiting to receive our official photos and I am certain they will be just as good as the video.

I have no hesitation in recommending Isle Media for any work that would involve capturing a special day. Even our wedding party commented on how attentive and nice they all were. If you are nervous about your big day (which I was), they will put you at ease and also put your needs first.

My husband and I had our wedding about 2 weeks ago. From the very beginning, Reese was our "contact" person and he responded very quickly via email, to whatever questions we had, even though they were really busy. Since we live in Vegas now, we met up with him a few days before the wedding and it ended up he and my husband knew each other from high school! That aside, he had a lot of ideas to help us with our day of itinerary and was very open to our opinions of what we wanted/didn't want.

During the ceremony and reception, they were very cooperative and easy to work with. They weren't all in our faces, and I felt bad sometimes though because our families and friends were taking so many pictures with their flashes on while Reese and his team were taking pictures. I heard that sometimes the professional pictures won't turn out because of other people's flashes :/. He handled it very well and it didn't let it get in the way (very professional :D).

We had a very casual tea ceremony that we planned for it to happen right before the ceremony, but changed it last minute to have it right before the reception. Reese and his team were very flexible about the change and it made me very happy to know that they were on board :)

Reese (photographer) sent us a small preview of few pictures of the wedding, and they came out awesome! I showed my coworkers, friends, and family, with ALL of them saying the pictures look really professional, spectacular, gorgeous (only some adjectives to describe the photos). We definitely can't wait to see the rest of them and show it off :)

We haven't received our videos yet, but I can only imagine it being as good as the photos, from watching their previous highlight/full videos on their website :)

We recommend Isle Media very much and we hope you choose them for your special occasion!!!!

Planning a destination can be difficult, especially if you are going into everything blind...from the venue to photography to hair/make-up you really have to put a lot of trust in your vendors. If it wasn't for Isle Media, I'm not sure I would have been as relaxed as I was on my wedding day. From the time I signed the contract and had my first conversation with Alan, to the time they left at the end of my wedding, I knew I was in good hands. Alan was great in ensuring that I had all the information I needed and covered everything that I may not have thought of. Zarriah did my hair and makeup and trekked all the way to the other side of the island at 8 a.m. to do a trial the day before my wedding. She didn't make me feel bad for asking her to change a few things and was very open minded. The team made my husband and I feel like we were the most important people of the hour. We hired two videographers and two photographers for our tiny 30 guest wedding and although it seems like a lot, it was perfect. One of the best things was when the photographers would get so excited about how a picture turned out because their excitement got me excited and I could really see the passion they all had in their work. I would highly recommend Isle Media for hair/makeup, videography, and photography. It's a one stop shop!

We had the pleasure of working with Ms. Kay Salera. We hired her for our traditional Japanese wedding 和装結婚式, family dinner 会食, and Western reception ウェディングパーティー in Osaka, Japan. We currently live in Honolulu and had the convenience of a locally-based bilingual, bi-cultural photographer that could discuss our requirements with full awareness of both our country's and family's respective customs and cultures. We cannot imagine having done the wedding with anyone but Kay, as she was able to fluently and fluidly work with my and my wife's relatives and friends, charming them all. Further, we just received our final copies of our photographs and have been blown away by the beauty of each moment captured. Kay worked tirelessly to get each shot right, and it really shows. If we have another special event in the future, we will definitely request Kay again.

Isle Media is just marvelous!!!! I first met Alan a little over a year ago. He was extremely prompt in responding to emails and phone calls. I loved their style of videography, so I knew Isle Media was the company to go with. What I loved most is that they also had their own Make Up Artists (Zairrah and Mei), which made for perfect medley for our wedding day. i (Sharon) really enjoyed their sweet personalities, in addition to their talented hair and make up styles. On our wedding day, everyone arrived on time and all were so professional. Zairrah, Mei, Kyle, Lester, and Alan made the day go by so easy. The Same Day Edit made for a very emotional audience during the reception, not a dry eye. It really captured the emotions of our beautiful day. Thank you Isle Media for being part of making our wedding day amazing! God Bless You All!! Highly Recommend Isle Media - Sharon and Kai Adric

They were great! I love that they're a one stop shop. I received hair & makeup from them, videography, & photography. We got a package that included engagement photos, wedding photos, same day edit, and wedding video. Last minute, I asked if I could add hair & makeup. Zairrah was available to help. She did my trial for my engagement photos. I loved it! And she did a great job on the big day too! Lester was our head photographer. He had a lot of energy and did a great job as well. Alan was our head videographer. He even edited our same day edit. It was awesome and when they showed it everyone loved it! Can't wait to see the end product of our video. I would definitely use them again.

Isle Media is a company that is so much more than you would expect. I planned my wedding from San Diego, CA and I cannot tell you how important Isle Media. I’ll go through the categories to help simplify their AWESOMNESS!!!

PHOTOGRAPHY: Words cannot express how wonderful Reese is. I had a freak out moment mid way to the wedding because the photographer I had hired for my engagement photos produced horrible work! I became concerned about my wedding photos, but Reese did not let that stop him from building my confidence in his work. He answered all of my questions, showed me his recent work, and calmed my nerves by being available. Reese and his team made me feel beautiful, confident, and natural, I could not have asked for a better photography team!

VIDEOGRAPHY: Alan is not only the owner of the company; he is also in charge of videos. He was personable, clear, concise, and passionate about his company. Having a company that provides so many services, Alan was able to offer us some last minute additions for our wedding. The video and photography team worked so well with one another that they never took away from our wedding. My guests complimented their diligence to follow us around, and their ability to blend in with the surrounding.

HAIR AND MAKE UP: I feel like it is so hard these days to find a stylist that does NATURAL looking make up. I was worried I would never find one, but Zairrah proved me wrong. She listened to my ideas and was able to produce something much more. On the wedding day, she did not fail to go above and beyond. With a few last minute add-ons, every single person turned out stunning and no one had any complaints on what was done.

Overall, this company is phenomenal. You can’t go wrong with Isle Media. They are a company that has everything you need and a group of people that will do all that they can to make your wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!!! I highly recommend Isle Media to anyone looking for an excellent vendor!

Isle Media is a company that is so much more than you would expect. I planned my wedding from San Diego, CA and I cannot tell you how important Isle Media. I’ll go through the categories to help simplify their AWESOMNESS!!!

PHOTOGRAPHY: Words cannot express how wonderful Reese is. I had a freak out moment mid way to the wedding because the photographer I had hired for my engagement photos produced horrible work! I became concerned about my wedding photos, but Reese did not let that stop him from building my confidence in his work. He answered all of my questions, showed me his recent work, and calmed my nerves by being available. Reese and his team made me feel beautiful, confident, and natural, I could not have asked for a better photography team!

VIDEOGRAPHY: Alan is not only the owner of the company; he is also in charge of videos. He was personable, clear, concise, and passionate about his company. Having a company that provides so many services, Alan was able to offer us some last minute additions for our wedding. The video and photography team worked so well with one another that they never took away from our wedding.

I would to start off by saying that this review is on behalf of my husband and I, and it is with great pleasure that we write this review for Isle Media! From the beginning of our engagement, to the end of our wedding, and even up until now, it has been a blessing to have Isle Media by our side. Choosing them was not difficult; we did our research like every newly-engaged couple and discovered that although Isle Media is a fairly young company in this industry, we believe their quality of work, expertise, professionalism, and communication style goes beyond what other companies have to offer! My husband and I are camera-shy individuals, and it was extremely comforting to be able to communicate and work with someone like Reese, who was able to work around our shyness and deliver probably the best photos my husband and I have ever taken together. We strongly appreciated how Reese listened to our needs/goals for the photos because every couple wants their photos to be a certain way! In the end, we even found ourselves reliant on Reese's photography skills/advice and really appreciated his artistic style to capture our poses perfectly. For our wedding day, my husband and I got the opportunity to work with more of Isle Media's crew (Reese, Kyle, Ray, and Julius) and we cannot express how organized they all were. What we really noticed about them was how well they trusted each other and how strong their teamwork and bond was throughout the whole day. They really strive to make you feel special! My husband and I highly recommend Isle Media for all their services! You won't find a better company that can deliver photography, video, and hair and makeup and leave you speechless, smiling, and appreciated. We have nothing but great things to say about this company and we know they have a great future ahead of them, so please take some time to look at their amazing portfolio and really consider them for your special moment in life! :)

This past January, my husband and I had the pleasure of working with Alan & Lester from Isle Media.

First and foremost, it absolutely does not matter that Isle Media is headquartered in Hawaii because they will fly to any destination to capture your wedding.

I can assure you that after one call, Alan will win you over and he will never disappoint. This is coming from an extremely picky bride with very high standards!

We told Alan that we wanted a wedding day recap that captured us, our family and friends in our true form. We wanted it to be light hearted and fun and that is exactly what he delivered. We even asked them to come to our rehearsal dinner to capture the speeches and they were so accommodating!

You will never even notice Alan and Lester in the background capturing beautiful moments, which makes the videos much more natural and real.

I cannot begin to tell you how many people talked about our wedding video recap. From the day of the wedding, and even until now, people always ask who our videographer was. We posted the video on Facebook and received over 400 ‘likes’ combined the day after our wedding. Did I mention that they did the recap in 2 ½ hours with 2 people?

On top of the same day recap he did for us, he also sent us a video of our reactions watching the same day recap at the wedding? Talk about going the extra mile!

If you are deciding between videographers, you MUST choose Isle Media. They can accommodate any style and are well worth the investment! Hands down, Isle Media was one of the best vendors we worked with at our wedding. Now go ahead and book them! Seriously, do it! :)

I am so happy that we chose Isle Media for our wedding day! It was hard to find a videographer that would still give us everything we wanted for a decent price. Alan and his crew are simply amazing!! The service we recieved was awesome and so were the videos (SDE, movie trailer, slideshow, & etcs.) as well, and we proudly show it to anyone who asks to see it! I absolutely love everything about it.

Communication from beginning to end was also great. It really helped that they were always available to answer questions. They even went out of their way to meet special requests such as working with us on our movie trailer and being available.

We truly appreciate their sincerity and their desire to make everything perfect for us. The video that they produced is perfect! They captured everything that we wanted them to capture and more!

We highly recommend Isle Media!

Alan, thank you so much for giving us more than we hoped for with our video. You're amazing at what you do!

We will definitely recommend them to everyone we know!

I inquired with Isle Media MANY months prior to my wedding date and it has been a complete pleasure. I booked them for photo, video, and hair/makeup. With any wedding, communication is crucial to minimizing stress and making sure everything goes smoothly. They maintained communication through both e-mail and phone. Even provided friendly reminders to important dates.

I would highly recommend the entire team to all brides. Book every service they have. They make it MUCH EASIER by providing everything under one company instead of dealing with separate companies.

PHOTO
Reese and Lester were amazing. Quality of photos blew me away.

VIDEO
Alan and the video team were wonderful. Same-Day-Edit was ridiculously good.

BEAUTY
Zairrah and her team were also amazing. 1 bride, 2 moms, 6 bridesmaids, several flower girls = hectic. But they did it without any problems.

My Yelp review is much more detailed as they allow more characters to be entered. Look for review entered by Daren D.

The crew at Isle Media are AMAZING! You will NOT regret hiring them!!

My husband Danny has known Alan Sangpan (owner) for many years and I first met him when we were looking into doing a music video about 2 years ago. We kept in touch and attended both of Isle Media's anniversary parties and saw how beautiful their work was. Both Danny and I agreed that if we ever got married, we would use them.

We got engaged in July 2013 and decided to have our wedding the same year in December. I immediately got ahold of Alan to see if they were available, which they were, thank goodness. From that moment, up to the day of the wedding, Alan and his crew at Isle Media were very accommodating and did everything they could to make our day the best it could be.

On the day of the wedding, the entire crew was on time and very organized. My hair and make up was done by Zairrah and she is absolutely incredible! Bride to be's, if you wanna look stunning, use her! I can't even remember how many people told me how beautiful I looked lol. I've also seen the work of the other hair and make up artists of Isle Media and they are ALL very talented and will make you look HOT!

The photo and video crew were with me from 1-9pm. They were all very nice and made me laugh and feel comfortable. They did a "same day edit" for us and it was probably the highlight of the night! The talent that Isle Media has is one of a kind. The quality of the photography and videos will leave you speechless. I had so many of my guests tell me how awesome the videos were (after the same day edit, they showed my first ever music video, which was a surprise for my husband). I think they got everyone at the party crying tears of joy!

It's hard to explain the greatness of this company. You just need to EXPERIENCE them. Like I said before, you will not regret hiring them. The amount you pay will be worth every penny!

I was in a wedding party that benefitted from Isle Media's professionalism in hair and make up and also with videography. I cannot speak highly enough of Isle Media's expertise in both fields. Zairrah, Miss Ren and friend did an awesome job with our hair and make up, which lasted all day. The videographers were so cool, calm and collected (much like Z and team). They were so proactive and knowledgeable that the same day edit blew everyone away at the wedding reception and later many others via facebook (over 1000 within two days). We can't wait to see the full video that the bride and groom opted for in the coming weeks! I could go on and on about the professionalism, focussed but humble manner of Isle Media's expert team, but you should really check out Isle Media's various blogs and videos available online as their work really speaks for itself! Thank you again Isle Media for saving us a whole lot of stress and allowing us to enjoy ourselves on a special day while you captured all the magic. XX

This past October, my husband and I were blessed enough to work with Isle Media for our wedding. We were able to book all three services almost a year before our wedding. We were a bit nervous because Isle Media was just an up and coming company. However, we did our research. We saw through their blog that they had tremendous growth over that past year, so we put our faith in their potential. What we saw on the day of our wedding touched our hearts, and we knew that we had put our faith in the right company.

Because my husband and I were residing in California during our engagement, it was very important to us that communication be open and strong. Unfortunately, I hate the phone. Alan, Reese, and Zairrah however, were ALWAYS very quick to answer back to my many emails. The company is extremely busy, but we almost always received responses within 24 hours. They were extremely easy to work with.

Furthermore, when it came to knowing what we wanted from their services, the entire staff was more than accommodating with both our engagement shoot and our wedding day. They were able to translate our ideas into reality and delivered in ways we couldn’t have imagined. They are true artists. Even in the times where we were unsure of what we wanted, we were fully confident in their ability to use their knowledge of who we are and expand on it. We were not disappointed. To this day, we still hear from our guests how amazing our pictures and videos are. It’s extremely easy for us to say that we loved their stuff because we were the subjects. But to have others (including some who weren’t even invited to the wedding) say that they were amazed (and even cried!) when watching our same day edit, truly is a mark of the type of vision and service that Isle Media can provide.

I recommend Isle Media to anyone looking for a close-knit group who is willing to work for your vision. We can only expect the company to continue to grow in success and skill.

We contracted Isle Media to shoot for six hours and had two videographers. We have yet to receive the deliverable but are confident that Alan and his team will revert with an incredible work of art. Working with Alan is such a breeze as you will, first of all, quickly notice that he has a crazy response time! Even though we are based in Japan, Alan would frequently respond back so quickly that we would forget that there was a 19 hour time difference. He is very professional in his emails and extremely accommodative of any requests that you may have. For example, we were first attracted to Isle Media after seeing the work they had done for another Japanese couple. We expressed how we liked the style used (and also asked for inclusion of other types of shots we had seen in other videos) and Alan right away said that he would make a note of this on our record, and do his best to ensure that the same team who shot the video would shoot for us on our wedding! Talk about great customer service. We would definitely recommend Isle Media!

We love Isle Media. My husband and I are from Hawaii but we were both living in Utah during the period that we were engaged. I didn't go to Hawaii till 1 week before my wedding, so planning everything was very hectic. Thankfully, Isle Media was very supportive and they were really great with collaborating with what I had envisioned on my wedding day. After a lot of phone conferences and email exchanges, we worked out the logistics of the wedding day and everything went great.

I got married at the Laie Temple on the North Shore, having that in mind... Isle Media had to get a little creative because they weren't able to watch and witness my marriage. They did awesome! My pictures, my video came out exactly how I wanted it to be. My husband and I are very relaxed, and I'm so grateful for the efforts and talents that were put forth to make my wedding pictures/video look flawless. Isle Media is all about putting out quality work and I admire that.

Kay Salera, Isle Media, was our lead photographer for our wedding in Oregon. I could not be happier with our decision. I love her! I can tell she loves what she does and it shows in her quality of work. Most of all she is professional and I appreciated that she always returned my emails quickly and thoroughly. Kay even flew in a day before our wedding and made sure to sit down with us to go over the schedule and review what kind of shots we wanted.

I was most impressed the day of the wedding….weddings are stressful and everyone is trying to make sure everything is in place before the wedding, but Kay remained calm and professional through it all. She even came to check on me several times while I was getting ready just to make sure I was doing ok or needed anything. I was so thankful to have her because I didn’t have a wedding coordinator so she made sure to keep us on time and get through all the photos of me getting ready, pre-ceremony and family pictures.

Kay is very talented and knowledgeable at what she does and knows how to make quick decisions for any situation…. like rain! She captured every moment. My most favorite moment was when Kay followed us in our 1930’s antique getaway car and took pictures of us driving through the town. We were having so much fun taking pictures along the way and stopping at neat locations in the town that we didn’t even realize that 2 hours had gone by! I don’t know any photographer who would go above and beyond to do that.

Kay continued to amaze me by getting a handful of edited photos to us only days after our wedding. Let me tell you.. my jaw dropped when I saw our pictures! The photos are beautiful and creative and the photo editing is high quality. Kay made me feel beautiful on my wedding day and every bride wants to be able to look back on their wedding day and remember how beautiful it was... I highly recommend Kay Salera - Isle Media to be your lead wedding photographer. Thank you Kay for all your hard work!

Kay is very talented and knowledgeable at what she does and knows how to make quick decisions for any situation…. like rain! She captured every moment. My most favorite moment was when Kay followed us in our 1930’s antique getaway car and took pictures of us driving through the town. We were having so much fun taking pictures along the way and stopping at neat locations in the town that we didn’t even realize that 2 hours had gone by! I don’t know any photographer who would go above and beyond to do that.

Kay continued to amaze me by getting a handful of edited photos to us only days after our wedding. Let me tell you.. my jaw dropped when I saw our pictures! The photos are beautiful and creative and the photo editing is high quality. Kay made me feel beautiful on my wedding day and every bride wants to be able to look back on their wedding day and remember how beautiful it was... I highly recommend Kay Salera - Isle Media to be your lead wedding photographer. Thank you Kay for all your hard work! Read less

Last summer, my husband and I had the honor of working with Isle Media and I cannot emphasize enough how fantastic this experience was. Alan and his team are true professionals and were with us from initial contact through the wedding and post wedding production. Although we planned our wedding from Vancouver to take place in Oahu, Isle Media were always only a phone call or email away and they always got back to us quickly. Selecting Isle Media was one of the best wedding decisions we made. Alan and his entire team are so passionate about their work and their artistry shines through in their photography and videography. Ours was an Indian wedding so it spanned 6 days and Isle Media were at all the events so they could capture all the traditional ceremonies.
One of the things that I really liked about Isle Media was they took time to listen to our vision of how we wanted the wedding remembered through photography and videography. They took this vision and then elevated it by incorporating their expertise. For example, we told them what kinds of pictures we wanted but we were not familiar with the island. That's where they intervened. Alan and his team had so many great ideas. They knew the best locations based on the scenery that we wanted. Aside from pictures at the wedding and reception venues themselves, we had scenic pictures in downtown Oahu, on the beach, in the ocean and even atop a mountain! They were so much fun to shoot and the Isle Media team made us feel so comfortable. They were great in guiding our positions and facial expressions. Our pictures look amazing!
The videography was equally awesome. Not only did Isle Media capture all the moments of our wedding celebrations over 6 days, they produced it in such an artistic and cinematic form that we feel like we are reliving those days every time we watch it. Although Isle Media was always there, they were so unintrusive and quiet while filming. They merely documented without interfering in the

So, when we first met with Isle Media at the Wedding Expo, we knew they absolutely had to be our photographer, videographer, and make-up artists (we booked them 18 months in advance just to make sure we could have them). It was such a bonus for me to be able to hire one company (less coordination, which is amazing if you are planning your wedding yourself), and it was such a value, that we got to pick and choose what services we wanted instead of having to purchase a package. They did such an excellent job, it is hard to believe that as a company, they have only been around for two years.

Professionalism:
When looking for a photographer/ videographer, I was told to pick someone you can get along with because you will spend the entire day with them. Thank god, Isle Media was so cool. From the beginning, we worked with Reese, who was always so nice and responsive. We had opportunities to meet with him face-to-face, he promptly responded to all of my e-mails, and answered my phone calls. Isle Media was extremely flexible with us, especially since we had to make changes to our timeline couple days before the wedding. While I was freaking out, Reese kept reassuring us that it was no problem and he would coordinate with his team. My bridal party actually had a lot of fun hanging out with the Isle Media crew for the day of the wedding. They worked so hard through the night (the entire time they were taking pictures and video).

Artistry:
Just by looking through their work, I felt like they didn’t just take beautiful pictures, but they captured moments. In their videos and their pictures, you could see the genuine emotion, which is what I wanted for my wedding. I also felt that they were extremely creative, and artistic in their style.

Beauty Team:
Zairrah, is such a talented make-up artist. She did an amazing job for my bridal make-up and all of my bridesmaids. I loved how natural all of our make-up looked (even though we probably had a lot on). =

TOTALLY EPIC!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

When Lisa and I attended the Wedding Cafe seminars, the single biggest regret that brides had on their wedding day was not splurging for Videography. Initially, we didn't like the concept of being filmed, and thought the memories we created in our minds would have more than enough meaning and fulfillment.

Phewf! We are so happy that we heeded the sage advice of brides past, and we're so fortunate that our wedding coordinator, Wai, put us in touch with Alan at Isle Media. They are the utmost professionals, took time to harness the energy and feel between Lisa and I to produce something super unique and super amazing! We can't thank Alan and his team enough for all their hard work and talent. They are so attuned, attentive and skilled that you hardly notice they are there, and yet, somehow, they managed to capture every detail, big or tiny, that contributed to the best day of our lives! :)

We absolutely love the same day edit Isle Media produced and received so many rave comments about it! It added flair and truly captured the essence of what we felt in our racing pulses throughout this whirlwind and remarkable day. And even better, we're able to share our magical moments instead of just having them for ourselves in our memories!

P.S. There were three to four "secret" messages that Alan (super awesome job man!) wove into the video and music that was used. Since we've watched the video like a million times, we're certain we've found them all.
WE LOVE IT!!

I absolutely loved working with Isle Media! They were easy to communicate with before the wedding and really took the time and care to make sure we were on the same page. Photographer Reese was incredibly professional and the easiest photographer to work with. He made our wedding look like a million dollars! The videography team captured all of the special moments that made our wedding unique. My favorite wedding vendor to work with and the best investment! Highly recommend booking them as a team. Above and beyond what I expected.

My fiancé and I weren't originally going to hire a videographer, but several months before the big day, we realized we'd probably regret NOT having one in the long run, so we started our hunt.

We're SO happy we found Isle Media. We weren't big fans of the traditional wedding video format (you'll notice common patterns after watching a few), and wanted something a bit more unique and organic, while still remaining elegant and classy.

We let Alan know this via email, and not only did he and the team accommodate our request, they were excited to take on our challenge, which made us even more eager to see the final product.

During our in-person meeting a few days before the wedding, we ironed out all the details and went through more ideas for the general look and feel of our video. Alan was professional, kind, and understood exactly what we were going for.

The day of, everything went perfectly. Even if there were hiccups with the timeline, Alan and the team were super flexible and easily adapted to it all.

The same-day-edit definitely took the cake. The whole day was perfect and went exactly how we imagined, but actually getting a chance to slow down and relive the whole day at the end of the evening was just mind-blowing. It was presented so beautifully, I couldn't help getting a little misty-eyed.

Alan and the team are awesome. If you're still on the fence about hiring a videographer, take it from us: It's completely worth it. Hit up Isle Media ASAP. You'll be happy you did!

Isle Media is without a doubt one of my favorite vendors! We booked them for all 3 services (videography, photography, hair/makeup) and they delivered beyond my expectations. Any questions I had prior to the wedding were answered clearly and very quickly. Hair and makeup was done just as I asked. The videographers and photographer did so as well, and they captured everything perfectly without being intrusive. They are all very talented and are excellent at what they do, and the photographers and videographers went above and beyond to capture the perfect shots! My husband and I are beyond pleased that we decided to go with Isle Media. And I'm sure that future brides and grooms who book them will feel the same way too!

First, let me say that Isle Media's CEO, Alan, is amazing. He knew I was interested in videography at our wedding and found a way to make it happen for us. We live on Kauai and he is based on Oahu, but he made time during a trip to Kauai to meet with us and wow us with his personality and business ethics.

He responded to inquiries right away, and made sure that we understood every detail of the contract. He made sure that everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding and had a turn around time of eight weeks. EIGHT WEEKS! This short amount of time is almost unheard of when it comes to wedding photography/videography! I could not be more pleased with the result.

Alan personally edited our highlight video and I love the amount of detail he included in the video. I didn't want our highlight to be cookie cutter, and he definitely delivered. I've already recommended him to several of my friends who are currently engaged.

We got married in May at the Halekulani and booked Isle Media for for videography. I would give Alan and his team 10 stars if I could. They were an absolute pleasure to work with. We booked Alan as our videographer a few months out and were so lucky that they weren't already booked on our wedding day. He was super prompt replying to emails even when he was out shooting a documentary in Asia.

We met w/ Alan when we traveled back to Hawaii before the wedding. He was super easy to talk to and made us feel at ease answering all our questions. I also gave him a couple of directions for the same-day edit. I asked for minimal mic portions during the video, as well as time lapse and grounds shots until the first lyric. I am super particular about music being a DJ and he was very accommodating and did exactly that. It turned out great. People posted on my facebook saying it was the best edit they have ever seen at a wedding. Jack andTrevor were great videographers. Super laid back and chill. Just capturing everything and staying out of the way.

We just got our finished edits a couple of weeks ago and watched them together. The full coverage was great. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Here is a link to our Same Day so you know 1) I am a real reviewer and 2) Alan followed my instructions exactly for the SDE.

They have hundreds of great videos on vimeo. I research things to DEATH and a videographer wasn't an exception. Definitely the right choice! Thanks Alan and crew you guys were amazing!

Alan, Jack, and the Isle Media team are AWESOME!!! It was such a pleasure to work with them, and I would recommend their video services to anyone! From the get go, the responsiveness of Alan is what made his company standout from the others. He responded to all of my questions and inquires fully and ridiculously fast. Here is how amazing his customer services is…on the day his twin daughters were being born at the hospital, he responded the same day to one of my emails! He is on it! On the day of the wedding, Alan and Jack showed up early and were extremely professional, you forget that they are even there, which makes for natural, candid moments. On top of that, Isle Media creates an above and beyond product delivered in a timely fashion. We went with the eight hour video package; our highlight video was stunning and the full length video let me relive my wedding day all over again! I am so happy we decided to invest in videography and the service and quality of Isle Media’s work is topnotch. If you are on the fence, take the plunge and go with Isle Media, you will be SO happy you did! I adore Alan and his team!

AWESOME. Isle Media is AWESOME and AMAZING!

These are just the details:

Before my husband and I were officially engaged in March of 2012, we attended our first Bridal Expo and just happened past Isle Media's section. This is when we first met Reese and Alan. We were immediately impressed with their work, as well as their friendliness and professionalism. So it was a very quick and easy decision to choose them for our photos and video. They were the first vendors we met with once we were officially engaged and had our wedding date set. We immediately booked them for hair, makeup, video and photo for our engagement and wedding. We were very confident in our decision.

They are all very easy to work with and talk to. Before our engagement session, we were a little nervous, but Zairrah, Alan, Reese and Jack made the whole experience an enjoyable and fun one. We LOVED the pictures. And so did everyone else that we showed it to!

We had an awesome crew on our wedding day: Alan, Jack, Reese, Kay, Zairrah and Rhoda. They helped me feel less nervous and our bridal party was very impressed with their professionalism and manner. Zairrah made us all look gorgeous! We just had a lot of fun with all of them. We loved our engagement video and same-day edit. Totally amazing. I really got emotional seeing our engagement video (for the first time with all of our guests) and seeing our same day edit. We loved it - and so did all of our guests! We had sooo many of our guests comment on how awesome our photo and video people were and wanting to know who they are. I don't know how they captured everything without being noticeable. They are photo and video ninjas! :)

We cannot thank them enough for making our special day all the more special, and helping us to preserve our memories of that day in the most beautiful and amazing way possible. We recommend them to anyone and everyone who need photo, video, hair and makeup for any special occasion!!!!

While planning our wedding I had a difficult time trying to find a photographer and videographer for our wedding. I was being really particular with who I wanted as our photographers/videographers because I wanted this day to be captured really well. I came across Isle Media from a friend that used them for her wedding. I was impressed by the video they did for her wedding. I immediately inquired with Isle Media and from that initial email, I knew I wanted to use them. From looking at their website and their Facebook page, I knew they were what I was looking for. What made things even better was that they offered not just photography, but video services.

Reese was really easy to work with. He made sure that he and the rest of Isle Media's team captured everything that I asked of them. The photos and video came out AMAZING.

I would highly recommend them to those that want their day to be captured by professionals that know what they are doing.

Thank you Isle Media. You guys are the best. :)

Ok. I just want to be completely honest...
ISLE MEDIA is hands down the BEST photographers/videographers I've ever worked with! I am a full-time makeup artist & a part time photographer so I'm extremely meticulous when it comes to details... and multimedia. I have worked with countless photographers/videographers & they have definitely stolen the show!!! Firstly they are punctual & reliable, professional & fashionable. I was so impressed with they're attire & they're manners. I am one to take personalities to heart & you can tell that they are very sincere & love what they do. We flew 5 of the team over to our island (Big Island) for photography+videography+same day edit to show our 'private ceremony' at our reception. We even hired in a crane just to get an amazing shot of our ceremony!!! They did a PHENOMENAL job, & the little details that my perfectionistism (:p) pointed out, they respectively adjusted what I wanted with no hassle at all. Like I said, I'm extremely picky when it comes to media, so I'm willing to pay the price for whatever it takes to get a PERFECT outcome and working with these ARTISTS has truly humbled my soul :) My Husband is very camera shy & said he never wants to use anyone else to take our pictures or document video in the future... A comfortable husband is a HAPPY WIFE :D I think we can both agree that every dollar was well spent :D We got over 1,000 views in 2 days of the video being launched... (I think our wedding took the cake ;) & I've had numerous texts & messages from friends & strangers telling me how amazing my HIGHLIGHT video was. They cried tears of joy & explained how real it felt.. as if they were sitting in the ceremony. A lot of them also mentioned that they would love to use Isle Media for they're future events! I am a PROUD BRIDE to represent this amazing team... we will definitely be FLYING them over & using them again for our post-wedding shoot & any future events that we may have as well.
THANK YOU ISLE MEDIA!!!!!

My bame is Kaipo and I am friends with isle media and even danced with Alan in the past so I've seen their work but they still exceeded my expectations. Me and my girlfriend Jenn wanted casual couple photos but Lester gave us even more than what we expected to the point where everyone thought they were engagement photos. Not only did we have the planned photos but we got a lot of candid shots where Jenn and I were having fun and Lester was taking photos without our knowledge. The photos if you can't figure it out already were amazing. Highly recommend them for any and all events.

We planned our wedding from California and worked with Reese to set up our services and had Jack as our videographer. We would have used all of their services but already had other vendors set up. They are super professional and create a great product. I was hesitant to hire a videographer for our wedding because I wasn't impressed with wedding videos I had seen. But after seeing their videos and I really liked their style and the eye their videographers had to capture the important moments of a wedding. Jack was so sweet and nice and we hardly noticed him walking around filming and Reese was very helpful and informative leading up to our wedding. Even though we only used their videography service, I highly recommend all of the services they provide.

We just got married in the beginning of February at the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort on Oahu. The team from Isle Media we had were Reese, Jack, Trevor and Kay - all of which were phenomenal. They were friendly, fun and made us all feel really comfortable. They were open to all my crazy ideas - and had great ones of their own.
We're at that age where all of our friends are getting married, and now we're the envy of them all since not all did we get our photos and videos in less than 3 WEEKS, they look AMAZING! It's really great that we got all our stuff so quickly - I've heard from so many of my friend that they wait over 5 months - sometimes even a year!
I wanted to use a photo for our thank you cards and now we can send out our thank you's quickly.
We also did a trash-the-dress photo and video shoot at Eternity Beach on Oahu. So fun!!! Totally felt like we were in a movie :)

At the last minute I decide to add a photobooth. LOVE photobooths! This way the guests get an additional party favors and we got a copy of all the pictures on DVD.

Here's a link to our highlight video: https://vimeo.com/60588773

When my husband and I were doing our budget planning and what to include in our wedding we were actually thinking of not having a videographer to save costs. We figured we have pictures and that is the most important. Trust me video is equally important when capturing precious moments for a wedding. Thank goodness we decided to use a videographer!

Our wedding coordinator actually referred us to Isle Media because she has worked with Alan and his team in the past and they do amazing work. I went on their website to browse at some of their past wedding videos and I fell in LOVE! Each video captured so much emotion and quality shots that I knew we would be in good hands. We decided on having a same day edit video to play at our reception. Our ceremony was very small, therefore the guests who were attending the reception could feel like they were apart of the ceremony when we play the same day edit during our program.

The day of my wedding Alan actually came around a half an hour early, which I did not mind at all. Alan and his team were very professional throughout the time the bridal party was getting ready. At times I did not even know they were there! They were also very cooperative because my husband got ready at a different hotel and they were able to get their equipment and video those special getting ready moments.

During our reception I was so excited to see the finished piece with our same day edit. When it was finished I was shocked at how quickly and how beautiful it came out. The video exceeded my expectations and was so grateful and honored they were able to do this for us. A day or two later Alan sent me the link to his website where our same day edit was posted. Trust me the first week I watched the video at least twice a day hahaha! :)

In around two weeks time our video DVD was ready. I was so amazed at the turn around time for the finished product. I was expecting t

Having a destination wedding in Hawaii has always been a dream of mine. Being from Philadelphia, I had to find all of my vendors online. From the beginning all of the staff at Isle Media was a great help. I dealt with Reese, Alan and Zairrah; all very professional and nice. Hair and makeup was amazing, Zairrah listened to what I wanted during the trail hair and makeup and the day of, I couldn't have asked for anything more. I wish I could fly her here for our reception at home :) Alan is very skilled at what he does, he took the time to ask me what I wanted the final product to look like, but I let him do what he thought was best. I am glad I let him use his creativity because the final video was great! Also he had mailed the final video only 7 days after the wedding! Cannot be happier with all of the services this company has provided us for our special day. I highly recommend the work because everyone there is a professional and skilled at what they do.

My husband & I recently got married on Oahu at Ko'olau Ballrooms on 12-12-12. We were recommended to Isle Media through a friend who also hired Isle Media for her wedding last year. I was just so happy I hired them for my cinematography for our wedding!

The day of our wedding, Trevor was our lead. He and his crew were so fun to work with :) Being that I was kind of stressing from being so nervous, they worked around me, helped me feel comfortable, and kept me smiling for the cameras :) The crew was so friendly and I loved working with them!

I was told that our video was not going to be ready for awhile due to the editing possibly taking over a month or two, i got home from work and to my surprise, my video was mailed in weeks before I was even expecting it! Great way to end our holidays, we watched our video and highlight numerous times, til this day we still watch it. I'm so happy with the results. They caught everything at my wedding, and I'm so thankful I have such a beautiful video to always look back on to remember that special day.

If you choose to book with Isle Media, Alan and his crew will not let you down! Very fun and friendly people to work with :) I highly recommend their company to anyone interested in cinematography!

My wife and I got married back in December and reflecting our experience with Isle Media I feel they deserve a public review from us. My wife had a list of "must haves" when it came to her... I mean OUR wedding. lol... One of them that topped the list was having cinematography. We had met up with several cinematography companies prior to finding Isle Media and never found the one that would work for us. After hours of searching the internet I came across Isle Media. I set up a meeting with them and got a response almost immediately. We met up and before we talked about fine details, Alan told us all about how he got into the business and was completely honest and up front about how long they were doing cinematography for and some of his embarrassing stories. His honesty when talking about his "learning experiences", had me sold.Lots of other places came off as "we are the best and other cinematographers suck" kind of mentality. A couple companies had told us that WE couldn't pick the music to our video and that the "surprise factor" when going with them. We have sentimental attachments to certain songs and they didn’t get that.

On the day of the wedding, we couldn't ask for anything more from them. They were there on time, dressed professionally, and ready to rock! Throughout the ceremony and reception I can't recall ever seeing them... It was almost like they just blended in with our guests and were not a distraction at all. We had specific things request that we wanted in our Same Day Edit and to our surprise, they managed to make it work. We were so happy with the final outcome that we watch it all the time!

Tip for the bride and groom. Dont hold back, cry, laugh, and enjoy your day. Alan can't edit tears in your eyes or edit emotion into your voice. YOU are the key in making a awesome video... Isle Media is there to capture it.

I cannot speak for everyone but my experience with ISLE MEDIA had been amazing. I personally cannot complain. No I am not a family member, or friend, nor do I know someone in the team. My now husband and I are from Washington DC and we decided to have a mini ceremony Hawaii. It was a dream come true (typical hawaiian wedding)

I had the honor of working with Isle media for my wedding last year in Big Island Hawaii in November 2012. Alan was our videographer and he was very professional even though I wanted him to relax a little. He was focused and tried to do his best to get as much footage as possible. (read my Pre-wedding review) I cannot brag about how great he was the day of the wedding. He was very pnctual (evryone hates a vendor who shows up late to a venue) and even brought two of his cameras to capture all of the angles and he was a ONE MAN SHOW. I couldn't afford the whole team so Alan decided to be our man the day of and he made sure of that. He was very helpful throughout the planning prior to the wedding. He made me feel like we've known each other for awhile and I should trust his work. He felt like family that we even invited him for an after wedding drinks until he had to catch his flight. Our experience was amazing! As for the package, we only had our ceremony there in hawaii and reception back at home in DC so we didn't get the most elaborate package. Just simple yet the outcome is just priceless. The captures everything and left the unnecessary clips out. They captured ALL of my important moments and moments that mattered like the vows!

The video was suppose to be done in 16 weeks time frame but we recieved ours on New years eve (couple of days ago) just in time for new years day. The husband and I spent our new years eve watching our wedding video on our laptop while

I used my wedding planner, Kristina, from Loulu, who was amazing to help me pick a videographer. She sent me several companies to choose from.
I seriously watched close to a 100 hours of wedding videos before choosing Isle Media. I chose them based on price and quality. Their price is much more reasonable then other companies and their quality exceeded others I previewed.
After working with them, i know we made the right choice!.
We hired them for 10 hours. Starting at noon, pre-wedding until the reception ended. Alan and Glen were awesome! Fun, personable, and professional!!
I thought it might be strange having 2 guys with cameras following us for 10 hours.. but it wasn't at all. They did a perfect job of blending in.. without us evening noticing them. But they did an amazing job of capturing every perfect moment!!
They had asked specific things we might want filmed.. and they got it.. just as I had envisioned!!!
My guests commented later on how much work they seemed to be doing. They were running circles all around the dance floor... making sure to get the perfect shots!
I think they were just as tired as us at the end of the night. :)
We were able to choose music for the video. We only picked one song for the highlight. We asked them to pick the rest, based on how they felt about us, the wedding, and our family.
We I saw the video highlight.. I couldn't believe it!! It was absolutely stunning!! It was perfect!! I've had so many compliments from family, co-workers, and even the band at our home reception.
Then the full video arrived... what a wonderful surprise. I expected it to be 20 minutes.It was 2 DVDs, 1.5 hours.
The film quality is unbelievable! They captured so many perfect moments..so many things I didn't even realize were happening on such a busy day!
This is definitely the best money were spent for the wedding! Something we can always watch, love, laugh.

My experience with Isle Media was AMAZING! I did a TON of research on videographers before my wedding and I am so happy with my decision. My reception was at the Four Seasons Maui (also did an amazing job!!) and I had gone with all of their vendor recommendations until I got to the videographers. I have to say that I was a little late to book so I decided to do it on my own. I emailed several different companies and Alan was the first to respond. I wanted to hold out to compare pricing and video samples, but Isle Media was definitely the most impressive and by far the best price. Alan walked me through all the steps and took the time to figure out exactly what I wanted. He showed up early on the day of the wedding with one assistant (Bodie) and got right to work. They were both so nice! They were not intrusive at all and even my bridesmaids raved about how great they were. I have only seen the highlight video, but Isle Media has already exceeded my expectations. Even my mother (who thought a video was a waste of money) called me after viewing the video and said that it was the best decision I had made. She even thought it was better than having pictures because it captured everything (she is not easy to please :). I was so excited when I first saw the video that I instantly posted it on facebook for my friends and family to see. I ended up getting calls and texts the whole day from people telling me that they were sitting at their desks literally crying at work. I am forever grateful to Alan and Bodie for creating such an amazing video for me and my husband. The best part is that I was able to share the video with my 101 year old grandmother who was unable to attend the wedding... another memory I will never forget :) Needless to say, I am a very happy customer. I also told my absolutely amazing, talented, beautiful wedding planner, Denise Black, that she needed to start recommending this company at the Four Seasons.

The best part is that I was able to share the video with my 101 year old grandmother who was unable to attend the wedding... another memory I will never forget :) Needless to say, I am a very happy customer. I also told my absolutely amazing, talented, beautiful wedding planner, Denise Black, that she needed to start recommending this company at the Four Seasons. Read less

Working with Alan on the contracts and details was painless. He was very flexible and accommodating. On the day of, Jack was our lead videographer and he did an excellent job. The quality of the same-day edits was much better than expected and it was totally worth the cost.

I just wanted say thank you again to Reese and Alan for being a great photographer/videographer and getting our pictures/video back to us in such a quick timeframe. I remember how when Reese noticed that I always closed my eyes during pictures, he would tell me to close them first and then he counted 1-2-3, "Open!". I use that great technique now and will again in the future. (You should patent that technique) :) Thanks for the card along with the pictures last week. Reese, Alan and the team at Isle Media are the best!

Booking Isle Media was the best thing that we could have done to make our engagement shoot and wedding day special. The absolutely covered each moment that will be remembered forever.

It was so easy to meet, communicate, and work with them. They are an awesome team. They are so dedicated and fun to have around. It seems that they have became our family/friends since they are so comfortable to work with.

They flew to Maui to do our engagement shoot and it was amazing. Our photos turned out so beautiful! The comfort level of what to do, how to stand, etc. was so easy. They were very confident in their work.

On our wedding day, they flew in a lot of support that worked hard together to capture our large wedding party (total of 16). I do wish we took individual shots (example: Bride w/Bridesmaids, Bride w/all of the Groomsmen, same for the guys and more family shots). Reese did have a good idea of having a sunset shot up at our reception area, but time didn't really work in our favor for that.

A highlight at the wedding had to be our SDE video that Alan created. I can't stop watching and thinking about it. I LOVE IT!!! Then when we received our DVD in the mail....we can't stop watching it and sharing it with family and friends.

Overall, this is the perfect photographers and videographers!! We wouldn't have chosen a better team. We are just amazed of all the amazing work that they produce. We wish the best for them as always!! Thank you immensely!!! Forever grateful!!

My husband and I got married in Sept. 2012 on Oahu. Since we live in Seattle, we planned for a destination wedding. I'm orginally from Hawaii so it was a MUST that we be married in my home town. My brother in-law recommended them and we booked them after the first inquiry. Alan & Reese kept in touch with us via email and phone the whole time we were planning our wedding. Planning a wedding long distance can be stressful but working with them was stress free. I love their websites and past postings of other weddings they've worked on so you can see what type of work they produce. We absolutely loved our pictures & video!! We are extremely thankful to have had Isle Media as our photographer and videographer.

Perfect, Professional, Flexible, Collaborative....just a few of the adjectives I have for Alan and the Isle Media Crew. Though based in New York City, we produce events all over the world and the Isle Media Team is one of the best we have encountered. It is rare when you meet people who are extremely talented and humble at the same time. Alan and team were with us for a very high profile multi day/multi event destination wedding. The video work -- extraordinary; the experience for us as the event producers -- even more extraordinary. I wish that we could clone Alan and his team. After interviewing virtually all of the video vendors in Hawaii (and many in LA), we selected Isle Media. YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER TEAM!

I don't know how I could possibly put into words how amazing Isle Media is. No matter what service you hire Isle Media for, they will go above & beyond your expectations. We used them for quite of few of their services, so I'll break them down by service.

HAIR/MAKEUP - We used Zairrah for makeup/hair for our engagement session. She is amazing! Even though I didn't have any pictures or samples of what I wanted, she was still able to achieve the look I was going for. She even stayed during the entire photo/video session to touch up my makeup and fix my hair. If hair/makeup wasn't gifted to us by a friend, we would have definitely used Zairrah again for our wedding.

PHOTOGRAPHY - Reese's photos speak for themselves. But the best part is what isn't captured in the pictures. He is so accomodating and easy to work with. When I changed our location (literally on the day of our session), Reese (& the entire Isle Media team) accomodated us and never made me feel bad about the last minute change. We were so happy with our engagement pictures, we couldn't wait to see what our wedding pictures would look like. But the day after our wedding, I received an email from Reese...with 5 edited pictures for us to share with family & friends!! I couldn't believe it. Again, his work is amazing.

VIDEOGRAPHY - This is probably the number one thing that all of our family & friends keep talking about. They were all blown away by our engagement & wedding videos. Especially our Same Day Edit video. We still can't figure out how Alan and the rest of the team are able to put a highlight together in such a short amount of time. But that just goes to show how good Isle Media is. To top it off, our videos were available to view the very next day!

As a bride, your biggest worry is if everything will turn out the way that you imagined. If you choose Isle Media, it will turn out better than you imagined. I can't say enough about Isle Media.

Isle Media is the best videographers in Hawaii! My husband and I are from orange county, ca and we celebrated our 10 yr. anniversary by renewing our vows at The Fairmont Hotel in Hawaii with just our 3 boys and so this was a very emotional and important event for us as a family. It was my top priority to find an amazing videographer who has the same style and vision as I do. I did tons of research and I lucked out with Isle Media. I had the pleasure of working with Alan and we couldn't have asked for a better person to cover our renewal of vows. He was so professional and so nice. My boys loved him! Words cannot convey how emotional and spectacular our video turned out to be. The gorgeous shots, the editing, the music, everything was so breathtaking, classy and just beyond words. It was so cinematic it felt like I was watching a movie. I had very high expectations from him and it was way more than I hoped for. My family and friends cannot stop talking about how our video gave them chills and made them teary-eyed. They said it was the most beautiful wedding video they've seen. I'm so happy we chose Isle Media. Alan is not just amazingly talented but a wonderful person as well. Thanks Alan you are awesome!!!

Go to isle media's website. View the video, photos and blogs that isle media has posted of my daughter's (Kelly) big day. That should be enough to convince you of the passion and talent that Alan, Trevor, Reese and Zairrah have for the job they do! After communicating with Alan by email for 6 months to coordinate his services for the big day, the height of the experience was in spending 8 hours with him and his team on "the day". It felt like they were part of the family, yet the product they have provided us is beautiful, creative, and a real treasure to us.

C'mon people, let's be honest here....Isle Media deserves ALL the stars in the sky!!! I first contacted Isle Media in December 2011, after I had sent numerous quote requests to other vendors highly recommended by Wedding websites. My Wedding was right around the corner, just 6 months away, and Alan was quick to respond by sending lots of info on the services they provided. He was extremely personable, and was very thorough with the options they offered for Video, Photo, and Beauty services. I decided to do the whole package, as I wanted to get the true Bridal experience. I had heard from many other Brides, that wished they had video to capture the moments they missed, or the photos of their magical day, and to feel like a princess as they got their hair and makeup done. From the time I met Alan, Reese, Zairrah, Trevor, and Mei, I knew I had made the right choice. I absolutely LOVED what Zairrah did for my hair/makeup, and the whole crew made us feel SO at ease during what would normally be a very nerve racking time. So what about the product....Have you seen their website??? Check out their blog with videos/photos. NUFF SAID!! Incredible. I will forever cherish the moments of my magical day, and have it documented with the most amazing Video and Photos thanks to ISLE MEDIA HAWAII!!! MAHALO NUI LOA!!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!

I do not enough words to describe my wonderful experience with Isle Media. When I first made contact I was at a complete loss! I did not have a ceremony place or time of event. I live in California and was planning everything on my own and was booking vendors one by one and I had just cancelled my ceremony site! Alan from Isle Media was so helpful! He was not discouraged by my situation and said they were available for my date. He even put me in touch with an amazing wedding planner(will be for another review) He then handed me over to Kay who would be my photographer for my wedding. She is the GREATEST! She was always answering any questions I had via email and her responses were quick. She would check in with me periodically to see how my wedding plans were coming along. For the day of Kay and her assistant Lester showed up right on time and got straight to work. They were both so friendly and made everyone feel at ease. Kay rearranged the hotel room just to make sure she snapped the prefect pictures! She has sent me some highlight pictures while I wait for the final product and they are beautiful. Can't wait to see what other amazing moments they captured. Thank you Isle Media and especially Lester and KAY for being there to make my wedding day sooo special! Mahalo :-)

Despite them being a new company, they are extremely professional and extremely creative, which (in my opinion) sets them apart from the other cinematography/videography companies out there. I highly recommend Isle Media - they will truly exceed your expectations :) Thank you guys again!

So far it has been 11 days since our wedding, and I still can't get enough of the same day edit video Alan, Trevor & Jack dreamed up for us! Isle Media is such a wonderful company on so many levels, and we are so appreciative of their efforts to capture our wedding memories. They are professional, friendly, and most importantly they are driven to create the best product they possibly can.

Alan & the team are very receptive to ideas and feedback on what is important to you on your big day. What I love most is how their videos don't just show what happened, it really tells a story and because our wedding day went by so fast, I truly appreciate having something that allows me to relive the moment over & over again! They are a newer company but I think they have the knowledge & vision that trumps many other seasoned videography companies that we reviewed prior to booking them. They're super friendly, easy to work with, and don't make you feel uncomfortable. Just plain awesomeness!

I booked Isle Media Hawaii a year before my wedding. During that year, Alan always made sure he stayed in contact with me. I would constantly send him emails with questions and he responded to every single one in a timely manner. He would also on occasions send me emails just to see how I was doing and how the wedding planning was going. He made me feel like I was the only bride he was working with. Alan is so easy to work with. He is very easy going, patient and understanding. Alan and his team from Isle Media Hawaii did an AMAZING job at my wedding. I also hired them to do our engagement video and same day edit video in which both had exceeded my expectations. They captured memories that I will have for a lifetime. No matter how many times I watch the videos, I still have those moments when I laugh and cry…..From my positive experience and services that I received from Alan and his team, I recommended them to family and friends in which two to date, have booked and used them for their wedding. They did an awesome job at their weddings as well! I will continue to highly recommend them to family, friends and or anyone who is getting married or planning an event. Thank you again to Alan and his team for a job well done!!!!!! You guys are the BEST!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you again to Alan and his team for a job well done!!!!!! You guys are the BEST!!!!!!!!!! Read less

Where do I begin? Alan and Isle Media were simply awesome!!! He has been so accommodating since day 1. I found them about a month before my wedding. I preferred not having a videographer, but my mom insisted on us having one at our wedding. I was one of those brides that felt like a video of our wedding was unnecessary. I am so glad I listened to my mom, and thank goodness I stumbled upon Isle Media on a wedding website. Alan is a so friendly and nice and was easy to work with. A few weeks before the wedding, we met just once to go over what would happen at the wedding. He told me what to expect and asked me what I wanted from them. My now husband is extremely camera-shy and was afraid, but, at the end of the night, my husband told me that he was very comfortable with the cameras...saying they didn't make him do anything he wasn't already doing. I was excited to see our wedding highlights at our wedding reception. It's amazing how quickly they work to finish the same-day edit. The quality of finished video was impeccable. I kept whispering to Steve during the video how amazing the quality was. It really looked like a movie. All my guests were simply impressed with the video. They were truly able to capture not just the events of the ceremony but the emotion. It was a very emotional ceremony, and they captured it. Everyone that watches it say they got goosebumps and got teary-eyed. THE VIDEO WAS PERFECT!!! Makes me want to renew our vows every year just so I can throw a party and hire Isle Media, again!!!v =) Isle Media did an excellent job. I could not have asked for a better finished product and better service from them. The people at Isle Media are professionals at this craft. I HIGHLY recommend Isle Media to anyone and everyone looking for a videographer. These guys are truly THE BEST out there!!!

Isle Media is Spectacular!

Isle Media was everything I had hoped for, and more! Having contacted them only a month or so before our very popular 11-11-11 wedding date, I thought I might have to 'settle' for less than what all brides hope for in their wedding photography. They far surpassed my wildest dreams!

The photographer and videographer were a great mix of professionalism and creativity, without rigid stuffiness or formality. We wanted our pictures to present our special day in a way that was true not only to our beautiful surroundings, but was true to our personalities as well. While taking the more traditional, expected shots, the professionals at Isle Media were also able to take advantage of the details unique to our wedding - like the raindrops on the handrails, which they photographed with our wedding rings; the rainbow which came out just before our ceremony, which they caught with my husband and his best man on the cliffs waiting for the big moment to arrive; the flower details and train of my dress, which they caught with spectacular drama, using the window-framed jungle as a backdrop; and the playful spontaneity of the day, like the shot of Loren climbing up to see me, like Romeo climbing to see Juliet! These unique shots made the photos of my wedding so extraordinary!

Thank you Isle Media, for your professionalism, attention to detail, flexibility, and true artistic excellence - both before, during and after our wedding! I would highly recommend them to anyone needing wedding or other special event or portrait photography.

Thank-you Isle Media!!

My husband and I got married on April 23, 2013 in Honolulu and we are very thankful we hired Isle Media for our photography and videography. We decided to hire them after a recommendation from our wedding planner. From the beginning, the process of the down payment to the outline of the service agreement was clear and easy. What drew us to them is the fact that Isle Media offers a range of services under one roof, who wouldn’t love that?! Planning a wedding is stressful enough, so when you can get a package deal it sure saves a lot of time… and headache!

Furthermore, their work is truly AMAZZZING! You can tell how good the team work is and the professionalism involved. Our pictures are like something out of a storybook… and our videos just makes us smile and brings tears to our eyes at the same time  Thank- you Isle Media, specifically our photographers Reese and Kay, and our videographers Jack and Lester. Also, thanks Alan for stopping by to say hi despite the new arrival of your girls! It was much appreciated. You all captured beautiful moments in our life that we will look at from years to come. MAHALO and ALOHA!

I had a very LAST MINUTE, intimate wedding due to wanting to get married to my (now) husband before we made our move to Los Angeles. Though it was going to be a very small celebration (with only about 10 people), I knew I wanted to have it filmed beautifully. After hearing MANY raving reviews about Alan and his team, I decided to contact him. And with LESS THAN A WEEK'S NOTICE, Alan not only pulled through for us, but he really DELIVERED! We could not be more grateful for the amount of effort, expertise, care, and vision Alan and his team provided for our most important day. Everything moved seamlessly on our wedding day because they knew exactly what shots to get and what to do, and we received our video in a timely manner.

Let me tell you - my wedding, no matter how small it was, is shown in the most beautiful, meaningful ways BECAUSE it was captured and put together by Isle Media. I could think of no better team to trust your wedding day, or any other important occasion, with. HIRE THEM! You won't regret it!!! :)

Thank you to Lester and the crew at Isle Media to help us capture special moments on our special day! Lester took initiative, met with us a few times prior to the wedding, and was timely on all his responses. As their campaign shows, they are true to what they say, “30 days.” We had our pictures within a couple weeks of our wedding, which is unheard of in the wedding industry. We were blessed to have it so quickly!
Lester, was personable, funny and made everyone feel comfortable through the whole process. Our wedding turned out to have the craziest weather you can think of but despite the stress, he stood calm and made the best of the situation. It didn’t even look like it was raining. I would’ve wanted more detailed shots of the décor and bridal shots but in spite of the circumstances it still came out great! Overall, the timeliness of the customer service was beyond my expectations and would recommend Isle Media.

Isle Media did our June Destination Wedding. We traveled all the way from Japan and had 98% of our 65 guest travel to our celebration. We were concerned about our vendors following through and doing a good job. We had previously hired a wedding coordinator who ran off with our very large deposit. Alan was great and was able to work with us on what was left of our budget after of our fiasco of trying to track down our coordinator. He was responsive and reasonable. The video along with our pictures were all we had left of our special day and we will always be grateful for the video/photography to remind us of our special day. Thanks Alan!

I absolutely highly recommend Isle Media~
With luck on my side, I found Isle Media online and Alan replied rather quickly with his quotes and packages. We planned a wedding in Kauai and found that Isle Media will travel~ My overall experience with them has been more than what I expected, we communicated via email and Alan made sure to answer all my questions and concerns which kept me at ease. Upon meeting him, he made me feel comfortable and natural which made the entire day flow easily. He even showed us clips of what he shot, which made us real anxious to see the final product! We've received our highlights video and are so impressed and happy with all the hard work that was put into a full day event. My husband and I watch this video daily! He truly captured such a special day for us and we are so thankful to rewatch these memories with style! Alan and Isle Media are amazing, just watch their videos for yourself and see how talented they are. My brother in law also loved his work from our wedding and booked him for his wedding in Dallas, TX!

Photography: Hands down my favorite service from the group (I haven't gotten my video yet, which I'm sure is just as goooood). Reese is a GODSEND. I'm a pretty crazy person and he was able to work with my crazy faces and poses! My husband and I were really impressed with how he managed to get shots in even when the wind was blowing and it was raining on and off.

Videography: It was a blast having Kyle around capturing our best moments. He was very chill, which helped us relax and be ourselves in front of the camera (it can be intimidating!!). It was also nice that he made sure to re-take any shots that he felt could've been taken better.

Hair/Makeup: Zairrah, Meileen, and Mariah managed to handle 5 bridesmaids, mothers (last minute!), and me before our first look shoot and we turned out extra beautiful! I am VERY picky when it comes to makeup so it meant a lot to me that Zairrah took the time to make sure that I was comfortable with the make up. Meileen did an excellent job on making my hair look beautifully put together.

DJ/Emcee: Kevin was really accommodating with talking to me over the phone and email about what kind of music and songs we wanted to play for our wedding. They did a GREAT job with the ceremony--every little detail we asked to incorporate was done flawlessly. For example, we asked them to cut the music when the ring bearers walked in so that they could a little surprise dance to the Harlem Shake. Everyone thought that part of the ceremony was hilarious, so we were grateful it turned out as planned. The emceeing was really good too! We didn't really plan to have any games during the reception but Kevin had a great idea of incorporating a kissing game that helped keep us all entertained.



We are forever thankful for the services that Isle Media provided! Thanks so much!

We almost booked with another more-established company before I stumbled onto Isle Media in December 2011. As a newish company, they were raw and had room to grow, but I could see that they had the budding components to be strong videographers. In talking with Alan the first time, he described themselves as a up-and-coming, hungry and determined company, looking to make a name of themselves in a competitive business. While he was new to the game, I could hear in his voice that he was willing to go the extra mile. To be honest, at the time of booking, Isle Media's pricing was definitely an attractive element, especially when compared to established video companies. (It's always good to catch those on the rise, rather than when they're enjoying the plateau.) Since our wedding took place in Maui, and Isle Media being based in Oahu, their travel fees were tremendously modest comparatively, another strong selling point as others were charging four-figure travel rates. We booked them and I continued to follow them closely over the months until our wedding in June 2012. I saw growth, new types of shots, new storytelling techniques and a diverse range of clients. They were definitely growing quickly as more and more began to notice. They were very flexible in changing flight plans to accommodate a more definitive wedding day timeline a few weeks before the big day.

The day of our wedding came and Alan and Michael were early in their arrival. They were easy-going, pleasant, gracious and, at many points in the day, weren't noticeable, capturing the important moments naturally without being in our face. They put us at ease, an important part on what can be an intense day. They worked well with our photographer, making sure they weren't stepping on each others toes, even sharing ideas on angles and light.

As we concluded our honeymoon in Oahu, we met up with Alan for coffee who delivered all our raw footage. We talked for nearly 90 minutes, at times about the wedding day and the business, but more about our goals and aspirations and life in general. It was less like a service-provider/client chat, it could've been friends on a Sunday afternoon. Our reception dinner was coming up in a few weeks and Alan assured us that he would get a highlight to us to show there.

When we got home, we loaded up our raw footage and watched almost every single clip. Still in wedding nirvana, there were laughs and tears, smiles and bigger smiles. We knew they would be able to put together something we could show all of our family and friends. When the email came in saying that our first cut was available, my wife and I were super excited to see the product. It captured our day and with a few minor tweaks, it became something we've watched over and over again. We've shown it back home at a reception, and to our family and friends, and they've loved how they could almost be there that day.

I look forward to seeing our long-form video in the next few weeks. I look forward to showing the highlights to more and more people. I look forward to following Isle Media and Alan's other creative projects into the future. These guys are going somewhere - probably up and up - you should get a seat on the ride.

We called Isle Media a FEW DAYS before our wedding ceremony. I really doubted that anyone would want to take on a project with such late notice, but Alan and his crew were willing to work with us, and happily at that. All of our questions were answered in an efficient and professional manner, and they had great ideas on how to bring our special day to life. Our ceremony was very small and low budget, but they made it beautiful all the same. The lighting, equipment, and angles they use are amazing; and our video came out great! All of the guests commented on how professionally and artistically done the video was, and we were so pleased to have chosen these young professionals for our wedding day. They made us comfortable, and moved through the day efficiently, so there was never an awkward moment. We were hesitant to allow them to choose the music, but Alan edited the video perfectly to the song he envisioned using, and it really grew on us. We will have this beautiful memory forever, and I more then recommend Isle Media for your wedding day!

My fiancee & I just recently got married on the island of Kauai & I would like to say that we are so glad that we hired Isle Media as our videographer.

It was so easy to work with them from the beginning to the end. I had simply emailed them for a price inquiry, next thing we know we signed the contract & booked them because we loved the work they do of the past wedding videos that they have on their website.

Alan was great to work with, its as if he wasn't there, very friendly as well & was always professional. He also was very quick to respond to my emails and questions.

Best of all, we were so happy with the turnaround time as far as getting our video & the quality was great. My fiancee and i loved it! as well as our family and friends. I highly recommend Isle Media for your special day because they will create, not just a video, but something that you will cherish for the rest of your lives, unlike pictures, their videography captures emotions from that day that you'll always relive & be able to share for many years to come. Thank you IsleMedia for being a part of our big day!

One of the most important lessons I learned from my 18 month wedding planning process is "you get for what you pay for." I found Isle Media about two months after they got started. Alan seemed very nice and responsive, the company had a good portfolio, and priced 50% less than the more popular videographers at the time. My fiance and I wanted to support businesses starting in the industry and decided to book them.
Fast forward 11 months to the week before our wedding. Part of our package included a slideshow, to be made by Isle Media. I scanned the photos and sent them to Alan. I got an email two days before the wedding saying that I needed to edit the photos myself and arrange them in order. He could not do it because they had a wedding that day. According to Alan, he could stay up all night to complete the slideshow but that would effect his performance the next day at our wedding.I did not want that to happen so I spent the day before my wedding figuring out our wedding slide show.

On the day of our wedding, Alan brought two interns. He did not ask our permission to bring additional staff. The two interns were not professionally dressed and did not act like professional wedding vendors. They were sitting in the living room of the suite and got in the way of the photographers.
In our contract we signed we were to get our video in 4 weeks. When I brought this up to Alan he said it now takes 3 months and he could not honor our original contract. Thankfully, after several emails and phone calls we were able to settle to 2 months.
I was willing to put up with all of this if the final product was good. Regrettably, the video on a scale of 1 - 10 (one being amateur video shot by friends to 10 being Hollywood quality) I would rank it a 2. The video was missing: our ring exchange, everyone including the bride walking down the aisle, and the funniest moment of the ceremony when the flower girl refused to walk on the rose petals on the aisle.
