When it came to choosing our wedding videographer, we went through great lengths to find a team that was professional. We were looking for a vendor that had creative vision while having advanced cinematography capabilities. We looked at over 30 vendors and I must say that Kai Media stood out early on the selection process and was hands down, the clear choice for us. We dealt with Kelii Grace over email (we live near Hollywood, CA) and went over the details. Once we landed in Hawaii, we met Kelii in person at a local coffee shop and had all of our details worked out. Kelii had some great suggestions and was able to capture our vision for what we wanted as well. We left the meeting feeling like we were working with a good friend and were relieved to know that he would be shooting our wedding with his brother, Pono.

On our wedding day, they arrived on time and began shooting immediately while giving great direction and coordinating with our photographer and other vendors.

Our wedding day was a blur with a flurry of activities and I am so glad we invested in Kai Media. TWO days later, Kelii sends me a link to a teaser video..."Really! Who does that!?", I said to myself. I clicked on the link and was astounded by what I saw! The video clip was a work of art. Kelii's musicality, song choice, style, soft lighting, camera movements and editing skills were masterfully showcased in less than 60 seconds...PRICELESS.

Check it out for yourself (speaks for itself): youtube.com/watch?v=C1_O…

We love the drone shot at the end as it flies out into the ocean. It surprises everyone that sees it and adds to the romance, grandeur and beauty of our wedding day.

We enjoyed working with Kelii and Pono and can't thank Kai Media enough for capturing our wedding day from their unique perspective.

We give KAI MEDIA 5 STARS and will post an update when we get our "Highlight" video and the "Full" video package.

Mahalo Kelii, Pono and Kai Media!

My husband did all the leg work when it came to videographers and photographers. All I did was review their work to approve.

My husband did an awesome job in finding Kai Media. I didn't even realize they were even at the wedding. I totally thought Kelii and his team were with Visionari, our photographers, lol. They all worked and blended together seamlessly.

They did an unbelievable job at capturing all the special moments at our wedding and creating an exciting/colorful movie like video. Their work surpassed my expectations in so many ways and truly was a masterpiece! They are extremely professional.

There is just one SMALL issue I have when they edited our video, Kai Media focused 5 minutes worth on the ukulele guy singing at our ceremony. We would have preferred that 5 minutes of candid captures of our ceremony.

Other than that, we love Kai Media.

The team from Kai Media are amazing! They are so professional and friendly.. We have not received our video as yet, as our wedding was only 4 weeks ago. We have received a good amount of photos to know our full photos and video is going to be beyond our expectation! The quality is amazing and we wanted natural shots which from what we have seen so far is what we are going to receive. I explained only once what we where looking for and they delivered that and more. We are so happy to have been able to have Kai Media and the team work with us! Thank you Kai Media!!!!

We researched quite a few videographers for our wedding on Kauai as we wanted to capture our once in a lifetime moment in the best possible way, and once we saw some of the Kai Media videos online we were quite impressed. The crew (Pono and Keone) showed up the day of our event and worked seamlessly with all the other vendors (photographers, officiant, hair/makeup,..). We were very impressed with the professionalism, flexibility, and friendliness while accommodating all the various requests from us. Although they captured every single important moment of our wedding, they managed to stay in the background and tried not to dominate our attention and allow us to enjoy our big day!
The final products speak for themselves. The highlight video, which I highly recommend, is fantastic and has been shared with our entire family and friends. Everybody loves it and it wonderfully highlights our entire day in just a few minutes. The full DVD (now available in Blu-Ray) was exceptional and is one of our most important treasures that we will keep for the rest of our lives. Highly recommended!!

We really loved working with Keli'i and his team (I think that they are a family business). They were really fun to work with, super laid back, but very professional. They made sure to ask us what we wanted to ensure was captured on the day of, and then proceeded to capture that. We've so far received our highlight video, and it is really great. Very professionally done, includes part of our wedding vows as well as lots of memorable parts of our day. We really loved it! Keli'i also worked with our budget to try to make sure we got all the important parts of the day, and came even earlier than part of our contract to be sure and catch those preparation/detail shots. He told us that they often work together with our photographer, Visionari, and we could definitely tell, as they worked seamlessly, rarely getting in each other's shots. Highly recommend them. We can't wait to see the full video!

Super professional yet laid back, personable and really nice!! The quality of their work speaks for itself (just check out venmo or their website). In sum, I was very happy with Kelii and his team. Very, very talented and experienced, and the highlight video that they included was AWESOME. So many of our friends and family said the video made our wedding day look like a romantic comedy wedding movie trailer. I received the DVD from Kelii less than 2 weeks after the wedding. The highlight video came a week after the wedding - awesome turnaround time. It is not cheap, but money well spent in my opinion. It's Hawaii, and pretty much everyone is nice in Hawaii (for the most part!) but Kelii and his team are really great- I'm glad they were a part of our day and am very happy with the results :)

Kai Media & Kelii are truly talented videographers and they did an unbelievable job at capturing all the special moments at my wedding and making our wedding video look enchanting and moving! Their work surpassed my expectations in so many ways and truly was a masterpiece! They are extremely professional and a joy to work with.

 On the day of my wedding, they arrived at my location on time and without bombarding me with a lot of questions about the location & set up details. They were such a pleasure to meet & work with on the day of my wedding. They paid a lot of attention to detail and was present to capture every special moment without being intrusive and getting in the way.  In fact, they were so inconspicuous that some of my guest didn't even notice I had videographers.  I cannot praise them enough for their truly exceptional work at my wedding. They are a five-star company and any bride would be lucky to have their crew video their wedding! Thank you Kei Media for making a video that will allow my husband & I to re-live our wedding in such a magical way!

Kelii’s vision, artistry and uniqueness are second to none as he and his team are one of the best videaographers in the State. We sat down several times with Kelii prior to our wedding to clearly layout what types and sorts of scenes, backgrounds and content we wanted in our wedding video. Kelii carefully listened and held true to his word. Kai Media captured all aspects of our wedding from preparation to ceremony to reception and they compiled the most breathtakingly stunning short-edit video for our reception that our family, friends and guests have ever seen. The Kai Media team is personable, friendly, cordial and professional, and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire day while capturing all key important moments and everything in between. Kai Media also very smoothly coordinated with our photographer—Eugene Kam Photography. Kai Media’s vision and artistry really shined to make our wedding day special and the talk of all our family, friends and guests! Kai Media is very highly recommended to all brides and grooms planning their special wedding day! –Mike and Kristen Nishimura

I originally gave this vendor a great review for the work they did the day of our wedding. It wasn't until after our wedding did this terrible nightmare with Kai Media begin. We were originally quoted 3-6 months for our wedding video. We also asked for a highlight video that was supposed to come sooner but never did. After 3 months i had my husband contact them to find out about our video. He emailed/called and didn't get any response. This went on for a couple of weeks till he just decided to stop by their office. When my husband arrived he spoke with our contact and he told my husband that they had some personal problems going on within the company and that's why it was taking so long. He said that they were behind on a lot of videos and that he just needed a little more time for ours. We took his word for it and gave it more time. We waited for the entire 6 months and once again tried to make contact by phone and email once again with no response. My husband again went down to talk to them at the office. Their response was that they changed their contracts and that their turnovers with their videos for their newer clients were 2-3 months so that's why ours wasn't ready yet. When he told that to my husband he was dumbfounded. How does that make sense you are trying to finish videos for clients that had their wedding after ours? Once again he reassured us ours would get done and they just needed more time. By this point we felt like something was fishy. My husband stayed on them by email and phone. Finally at almost 9 months my husband went down to the office again. Then they finally admitted what happened they lost our wedding footage. And we weren't the only couple this happened to. They were trying to stall all this time with all these lies to see if they could get it back. We never really got a straight answer on what happened exactly. All we knew was that something with the hard drive they used got deleted/taped over...blah blah blah. Supposedly they were sending the hard drive to Korea to see if they could get the footage back but we never heard back about that. They were able to give us a little of our wedding but the most important parts were missing from us getting ready with our bridal party till about 99% of our ceremony. They didn't even get us walking down the aisle. It was really horrible and we couldn't believe this was happening. Most of all we couldn't believe they didn't let us know about this earlier. They just strung us along and lied the entire time. My husband has tried to get in contact with them to see if we could get the hard drive so we could send it to someone ourselves to get the footage back but once again his emails and phone calls went without response. For this reason we feel that we didn't get the entire story about what really happened. I HIGHLY recommend not going with this company if you want your wedding video because you are at great risk of getting lied to and in the end not getting it at all. Such a disappointment! BUYER BEWARE!

They didn't even get us walking down the aisle. It was really horrible and we couldn't believe this was happening. Most of all we couldn't believe they didn't let us know about this earlier. They just strung us along and lied the entire time. My husband has tried to get in contact with them to see if we could get the hard drive so we could send it to someone ourselves to get the footage back but once again his emails and phone calls went without response. For this reason we feel that we didn't get the entire story about what really happened. I HIGHLY recommend not going with this company if you want your wedding video because you are at great risk of getting lied to and in the end not getting it at all. Such a disappointment!

Wow! Kai Media is worth every dollar! The talent oozing from these boys is ridiculous! I have only seen my Highlight Video thus far and cannot describe in words how happy I was when I saw it. It took me back to my wedding in an even more glorious way. They are so talented, artistic, and creative. What's more, they are all sweethearts and an absolute pleasure to work with. One of the guys saw that I was very warm after the ceremony and ran to get me an ice cold water WITH A STRAW so as to not ruin my lipgloss. Their personal touch is unmatched in the industry. Definitely the best videographers in the world!!!! Aloha :)

Kai Media was awesome! We got married in September of 2008 and we are still hearing raves from our friends and relatives about our video.

Kai Media is very professional and we love their creativity and style. They documented what was going on on our wedding day and most of the time we didn't even know they were there. They put together a "Same Day Edit" highlight video for our reception. This is something that you MUST have for your wedding day. It's a highlight video from your wedding day that they show to everyone towards the end of the reception. It's not just like any video you have seen. Kai Media's videos are tasteful and very professional.

It really impressed us and it made both our parents were really happy. (especially since they got so many phone calls from their friends and relatives about how amazed they were!!!)

Thank you, Kai Media!

We got married in April 2008 and Kai Media did an AMAZING job in capturing all the moments of our wedding. I am so thankful that they were the ones to do it. They were helpful in answering any questions we had, are very reliable, hardworking and just great people!

On the day of the wedding, they captured so many footage and at times, I forgot that we were being filmed! During the reception, they showed highlights of the ceremony and a slide show which our guests enjoyed. Once we received our wedding video a couple weeks later, we were so impressed. It was very tasteful and definitely a tearjerker. All of our family and friends enjoyed viewing our video and still talk about it to this day!

Thank you so much Kai Media! We can't thank you enough for taking part in capturing our special day!
