Picture it. Your wedding on Maui. You likely chose this incredible place because of the almost unimaginable beauty, tranquility and peace. But that special day will all come and go so fast, you may feel like it is over before it ever began. That's why there is nothing like a perfect wedding video produced exclusively for you by Words and Pictures. With more than 30 years of experience in professional media, we know what it takes (like our motto says) "to tell the story." Every wedding is unique and every story special. Let us help you remember yours forever.

Special views to capture the moment.
Beautiful Maui scenes and beautiful Hawaiian music open your cherished video. Your perfect wedding video begins with a video "montage" featuring Maui's scenic splendor - beaches, mountains, flowers - earth, sky and water, set to enchanting Hawaiian music. Click here to see an example of just some of the scenic footage we at Words and Pictures have gathered on Maui, and how we weave it into your unique presentation. Then let your imagination run away. We can also use music that you choose. Be sure to ask us about making your keepsake photos part of the total wedding story.
Wedding photos, taken before or after the ceremony capture only glimpses in time. Video taken during your photo sessions adds a candid "behind the scenes" look at your special day. Click here to see samples of video wedding candids by Words and Pictures. Every time you look at your wedding photos, each will bring back a memory that your perfect wedding video will reinforce, helping you recall even more of the whirlwind that was that magical day. Video captures those candid moments before and after the ceremony.
You'd want to remember this forever.

Every wedding package we offer includes two videographers. Why? Because there are moments and perspectives that simply demand it. Anything less would be...well, less. Ask us about adding a third camera, for even greater perspective and more angles and coverage. Click here to see samples of the impact multiple-camera videography by Words and Pictures can have when capturing your special day. By the way, those two videographers happen to be husband and wife - lifetime partners who know what it takes to capture each cherished moment. And each moment will appear in crisp color and clarity because we use only three-chip digital broadcast-grade camcorders from Sony. All editing is done in the "digital realm," using state-of-the-art non-linear technology. All that means that edit-to-edit, duplicate-to-duplicate, every scene is the exact same quality as the "first generation" moment it was captured by the camera.

 

Two camera videography captures it all.

Custom graphics enhance your perfect wedding video.

Personal touches to your perfect wedding video include freeze-frame and slow-motion special effects (where appropriate), plus custom graphics both during your video and on each VHS videocassette label.
