Who am I?

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.

Since moving here in 2008 Maui has provided me with an amazing backdrop to tell my stories, and what started here as a hobby has quickly become my passion. Just as the island speaks for herself, so does my work.

I love weddings and in October of 2016, I married the love of my life back in our home state of Oregon. Our family grew a little bigger in March of 2018, when our son Carter was born. All my free time is spent with my family, playing and exploring on Maui.

Videography is my voice. From a single frame to a full feature film, I want to share my view through the lens with the world.

My name is Caleb. Let me show you what I see. 

 

REVIEWS

Kind words of praise

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 and his team are LEGIT. We hired No Ka Oi to do the video for our wedding. We were initially on the fence about whether or not we should even have a video, but after spending time with Caleb on site and getting our video back it was 100% the right choice and totally worth the money. We chose the shorter package and walked away with a video that isn't too long and isn't too short. It's just right. For those that couldn't attend our wedding, the video is an intimate look at what our wedding felt like without having to sit through the ENTIRE wedding. The video is polished, romantic, sweet, and just everything we could have wanted. The video also has unbelievable production value. The sweeping shots of our location really set the scene. A friend asked if it was stock footage, and I had to tell her no ... our videographer is just that good! Caleb himself is responsive, but laid back. He doesn't stalk you or pressure you into upgrading your package. He's super easy to work with and responds to all of your crazy emails and questions quickly. He was a delight to hang out with - he was unobtrusive when our photographer was doing her thing, and gave us great direction when asking us to do thing specifically for the video. The perfect balance of capturing the moments and directing. When we received the video, I asked for one shot to be switched out and he was totally fine with it because he's sweet, chill, and just wants you to be happy. Adding Caleb and No Ka Oi is one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding, even if it wasn't an expense that we were initially planning for. I would hire him again at any and every opportunity. Thank you for capturing the joy that we felt and the crazy wonderful vibe of our wedding. - Kyle + Liz

Caleb was so amazing to work with!! He definitely is very talented at what he does, and we got along with him right from the start. I would recommend him to anyone who's looking for an amazing videographer. I can't wait to use him again in the near future! - Dallin + Cienna

 

We hired No Ka Oi Media for our wedding in March and we’re absolutely thrilled with our choice! Caleb’s responsiveness was unmatched. He was prompt, professional, and has a creative and unique way of producing his videos. From the beginning he was very clear about packages that he offers and we felt the pricing was very competitive. The day of our wedding Caleb showed up and made us feel extremely comfortable. He even helped out to make sure my dress was placed correctly, for pictures. Having Caleb there felt like having an old friend around. I was worried that between a videographer and a photographer we would be pulled in so many directions we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the day. This was not the case at all. Caleb managed to capture the moments of us just enjoying our celebration in a way that we will be able to remember and enjoy for years to come! We cannot thank him enough for the beautiful video he created for us. - Cole + Katie

 

Our wedding planner recommended No Ka Oi Media and we could not have been happier with the videos! Caleb was extremely professional, kind, and easy to work with. He did an amazing job capturing the wedding and surrounding scenery, especially with the drone work! We can't stop watching the videos and reliving our special day! We've received so many compliments from our friends and family as well. We are thankful for his work and can't recommend him enough! - Darren + Devyn

 

Perfection.
Caleb and his team captured our wedding day and love perfectly. 
Weddings are stressful enough, not having to think about whether or not your big day is captured brilliantly is priceless. Being filmed by a team who are professional, easy going and downright fun to film with - icing on the cake.
My husband and I could not have asked for a better representation of our wedding, from the 'preview' to the highlights or the ceremony videos - all captured with detail and care. I can't say thank you enough to your team, because of you we will have this moment forever.
Mahalo, Cheers, Thanks! - Jon + Sara

 

Caleb was recommended to me by my wedding planner, and I am glad I went with him. Super friendly guy, and very talented too. I was impressed with his previous videos on the website, especially some of the drone work. His work feels candid and authentic, not campy or super cheesy. Being a destination wedding, I really wanted the video to capture not only our love, but the extraordinary views, and he perfectly executed that vision and made it more stunning than I could have ever imagined. - Sabrina

 

Caleb did the most outstanding job capturing the memories of our wedding day! He is so talented, creative and inspired! Watching our highlight video brought tears to the eyes of everyone we shared it with! He is amazing and we highly recommend him!!! - Natalie

 

If you’re looking for a videographer with a great eye for shots and design, Caleb is your guy. The day of our wedding had challenging conditions from the weather and everything Caleb captured was amazing. Neither my husband or I are very comfortable on film, but Caleb has a natural presence that put us at ease. Prior to the wedding, Caleb met with us when we arrived on Maui to make sure he knew what we wanted to capture and met with us again after the wedding. His turnaround time for our edited clip was way faster than anyone else around and the quality incredibly good. There are moments Caleb and his team captured that are truly irreplaceable in both video and sound, and ones we will always be grateful to have.  - Caitlin
