Aloha

no ka ‘oi (no kah oy)

Definition - the best; to excel; superior; number 1 

The phrase "no ka oi" comes from a Hawaiian expression "Maui no ka oi" meaning "Maui is best"- and if you've ever been to visit, it's not hard to see why. This island has become my home/playground since moving here from Oregon in 2008. My days are filled with surfing, hiking, and exploring with my wife Christine and our son Carter. I am incredibly grateful to live in such a beautiful place and feel so honored to call my passion “work”.

When you watch our wedding films, I want you to be excited, moved, and filled with emotion. Every couple is unique and has a different story to tell. My calling is to capture all those big and small, unique and beautiful moments. My goal is for you to look back at your wedding films 20 years from now and relive every moment exactly how it was.

Kind words of praise

Initially, I didn’t think we needed a videographer at our wedding, however, it was something that was really important to my fiancé. Our wedding day has just passed and all I can say is opting for a quality videographer is ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT! Caleb blew us away with his talent and attention to detail throughout both the planning process and our wedding day. His passion for his work is obvious and he made us feel so comfortable in front of his lens. Several vendors on Maui had raved to us about No Ka Oi Media and we can definitely see why! It was a pleasure to work with Caleb, we and our guests are still watching our video on repeat! - Cory + Ashley

It took us until the end of the planning process to decide on whether or not we wanted a videographer to capture our day on film but I am so grateful we did. Having footage of our wedding brings me back to those moments each time I watch and you truly cannot put a price on that. Being that we were planning our wedding from Canada, we weren't able to meet with Caleb prior to coming to Maui but his unique ability to put you at ease and light-hearted charisma made us feel as though we had known him forever. His undeniable talent left us with a unique piece of our wedding that we can hold onto forever. We highly recommend Caleb to any couple looking to capture an authentic and stunning film of their special day! - Nick + Diandra

We chose No Ka Oi for our wedding videography, and we are so glad we made this choice. Caleb and his crew provided top notch service from the very beginning to the end, creating an excellent final product that blew us away. Many friends that watched our video said it was "the best wedding video" they have seen, which is very sweet, but also speaks as to how well No Ka Oi creates the videos.

BEFORE THE WEDDING

In the days leading up to the wedding, Caleb kept in touch with us, and even met up with us at a cafe. It kind of felt like meeting a friend and chatting over acai bowl, but I believe this is part of his creative process. We talked briefly about the direction of the video we wanted, but more importantly, Caleb was trying to get to know us as a couple and understand our style, so he can accurately capture our energy for the video.

WEDDING DAY

On our hectic wedding day, Caleb was like a comforting friend. Caleb and his crew were professional, and stayed almost invisible all day while capturing tons of footage. They didn't order anybody around or get in people's ways, and this was very helpful because everybody was very relaxed, had lots of fun, and this allowed the team to capture lots of candid shots of guests having a great time.

POST WEDDING

After the wedding, Caleb kept in touch with us and worked with us to make sure that we were 100% happy with our final video. He delivered the video much quicker than we expected, and throughout the whole process, he made us feel very comfortable. Our wedding video he gave us is beyond what we imagined. The song choice was perfect, the important speeches were spread out in short segments in just the right way without overtaking the video, there were many shots that captured the day perfectly, and there were even drone shots that captured the beautiful Maui setting that we were all in. In every way, the video turned out perfectly, and we received so many compliments from guests & friends specifically about our video. I would highly recommend No Ka Oi to anyone looking for a videography service in Hawaii. Excellent professionalism, with beautiful personal touches. Simply the best! - Nate + Chloe

Caleb was amazing to work with, very professional and laid back at the same time. We couldn't be more thrilled with our wedding video. He perfectly captured the moment, and made a beautiful keepsake of our wedding day. He had such a calming presence and was an important part of our day. From the get go I had full confidence that we would like him and his work, and he overdelivered. We are SO glad that we found No Ka Oi Media and HIGHLY recommend! - Tony + Maren

Caleb was absolutely amazing to work with, both on our wedding day and afterwards. He is so thoughtful and goes above and beyond! We absolutely adored our highlight film and love the fact we got to purchase the raw film on a hard drive. He captured our wedding day so beautifully and allows us to relive the day each time we watch it. Would highly highly recommend to any recently engaged couple! - Charlie + Rebecca

Caleb gave us the most beautiful wedding video - it was everything I wanted and more! When I researched other videographers in the area the other videos I watched just didn’t compare and I knew he was the obvious choice. His mix of creative, playful and romantic paired with all the perfect songs just bring joy to your heart!! He was easy to work with and went above and beyond the day of our wedding and with the final product. Our wedding was running behind and he offered to stay late to get extra footage that we all agreed would be worth the extra time and expense. When I got the video it instantly moved me to tears - I am so in love! It was incredible how he was able to capture so many special and sweet moments between us and his video truly expressed the joy and love that existed on our day both between us and our guests. He captured the best tidbits of our vows, speeches, our pictures, our guests, the wedding party, the first dance and even used drones to show Hawaii’s beautiful landscape that we were so blessed to have as a background. He even caught amazing footage of a whale that came for a visit. Combine all this with awesome music! He is truly talented - what a gift! I can’t wait to share it with our kids one day. I highly recommend No Ka Oi Media to film your wedding video!!! You won’t regret it!! - Peter + Heather
