If I Could Rate Higher Than 5 Stars, I Would!    posted 4/13/2014 (updated 4/14/2014)

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! :)

Amazing    posted 10/18/2013 (updated 4/10/2014)

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 celebrations. They also used the music that we provided to enhance the videography and their timing with respect to changes in the beat of the music with changes in events of the videography was impeccable.

I cannot emphasize enough what a great experience we had working with Isle Media. They are truly professional and genuinely care about making sure that your wedding pictures and video are the absolute best. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any couple who wants high quality photography and videography for their special day. Isle Media is the best in the business! Thank you so much for making our wedding so incredibly memorable!

Full Package and MORE!!!    posted 3/10/2014 (updated 3/11/2014)

Isle Media is a company that is so much more than you would expect. Not only do they have a plethora of services to choose from, but they also go above and beyond for their clients! I had been planning this wedding from San Diego, CA and I cannot tell you how important Isle Media was in calming my nerves, making me confident in their services, and making me feel that I was normal with all the craziness going on. I’ll go through the categories to help simplify their AWESOMNESS!!!

PHOTOGRAPHY: Words cannot express how wonderful Reese is. Our conversation on our first meeting day flew so naturally that before I knew it, Reese already had a page of notes on the types of photos I was looking for and a tentative timeline. 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 (and there were a ton), showed me his recent work, and calmed my nerves by being available (he was always prompt to respond which decreased my stress tenfold). Reese and his team made me feel beautiful, confident, and natural (even when taking pictures on rocks with heels!) that I could not have asked for a better photography team! Now I just wait for these amazing pictures because the previews have me excited and wanting more!!!

VIDEOGRAPHY: Although Alan is the owner of the company; he is also in charge of the 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. Can you imagine if I had to find another vendor?! Being a video pro, Alan worked out the kinks of Sam’s personal video before the wedding started! His skills amazed Sam, who does not get easily impressed. The video and photography team worked so well with one another that they never took away from our wedding. My guests complimented their work ethic because of their diligence to follow us around, and their ability to blend in with the surrounding. I can’t wait to see this video!

HAIR AND MAKE UP: Zairrah is the perfect woman for the job! 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 was friendly, conversational, and skilled! 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. I tried my best to find out who wanted hair and make up done that day, but there were still a few add-ons requested at the last minute. Zairrah and her team were very kind to meet all of these requests and still finished with time to spare! Every single person turned out stunning and no one had any complaints on what was done.

Overall, this company is phenomenal. A team filled with talented people that truly believes in providing optimal work. 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, especially if you’re doing a destination wedding. Trust me, your stress level will drop if you have this team on your side!!!

Amazing Portfolio and Expertise!!!    posted 2/4/2014 (updated 2/5/2014)

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! With this being said, it was easy to trust and have Isle Media become part of one the most special moments in our lives. 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. Especially for our engagement shoot, 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. He even took some time after the shoot was over to take more pictures of us with our cat because he knew how important it meant to us! This goes to show how much Isle Media really cares for all their clients!

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. They showed up early and began working immediately. 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! One of the photographers was even nice enough to hold the train and fix my dress while taking pictures at our different locations. Additionally, the entire Isle Media team was so attentive in trying to capture every special moment for my husband and I that we cannot think of any moment we were unsatisfied, disappointed, or unhappy while working with them. We are extremely happy with all their deliverables and have received endless compliments from our family and friends!

In addition to Isle Media's photography and video, Zairrah did an amazing job with my hair and makeup for both our engagement shoot and wedding day! I've always been a simple person, so I know very little when it comes to hair and makeup. Zairrah was great at listening to how I wanted my hair and makeup done, and I was extremely happy with how everything turned out. After working with her for the engagement shoot, I knew my hair and makeup for the wedding day would be perfect! She eliminated one the biggest concerns a bride could have for her wedding day and that is to look amazing in front of her future husband and all the guests! I couldn't have asked for a better hair and makeup stylist than Zairrah!

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!

Wedding Videographer (ISLE MEDIA)    posted 1/21/2014 (updated 1/22/2014)

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!

The BEST Cinematography/Photography/Hair & Make-Up Company EVER!    posted 12/26/2013 (updated 12/27/2013)

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! You won't find a better company to use for your photos and videos so why look elsewhere :) ? AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! Do it.

Full Package    posted 11/27/2013 (updated 11/28/2013)

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. In the year following our initial booking date, we have seen the company grow exponentially in skill (and success). We can only expect to see that continue. Stay tuned for an updated review once we receive our final products. We can't wait!

Amazing Same-Day Edit    posted 11/25/2013 (updated 11/26/2013)

When we set the date all I wanted was Same Day Edit. After looking at others I was beginning to get discouraged because I didn't like any or the other companies I saw. All the other companies, looked like a homemade video was slapped in between a production when it came to the ceremony.

My wedding planner had sent me a link for Isle media. I instantly fell in love with Isle Media style and loved how it was so different from everything else I've ever seen.

Our first meeting with Alan And Lester was so calm so easy! It seemed like he knew what we wanted. Even though we didn't really know how to explain it. I've always felt like, I wanted to leave it to the experts I want them to use their creativity which is what I liked about them to begin with. I don't know how to do their job, so I wasn't about to choose the song of give ten pages of directions for shots I wanted.

Leading up to the day, I got so excited just to see how everything was coming out!

It was finally here and Yes on your wedding day everything runs late and it can never go on time! I got really nervous and everything was crazy! Alan and his crew were so professional made me and all of my family feel so comfortable in the crazy mayhem of wedding jitters, nerves, makeup and crazy downtime for the boys! My fiancée and his groomsmen felt comfortable and had fun filming along the way. It was almost as if they weren't there! Alan kept telling me it's ok, everything is great!

Finally we are done with the ceremony, the picture taking, the Chinese tea ceremony, now the reception, the lion dancing! What a crazy crazy day!!!!

We were all so excited to see his amazing work. When it finally played at the reception I was crying again like I had done earlier in the day with happy tears. To relive those moments all over again with my husband and see how happy everyone around us was and how handsome fiancée looked getting ready. How perfect the day really was. It was so amazing, the video was clean so professional, like music video! Haha idk I just know I've never seen anything like it.

Everyone was so impressed and could not believe how talented Alan was and how fast he put together my same day edit!

Since the link has posted, all of my family members, bridesmaids, photographer, including us and friends that couldn't come have been watching it on repeat!!

We can't wait to see the highlights video because the day was so crazy and fun we know it will be awesome like the same day edit.

Alan you are amazing and are so talented and we are so happy to have the best as a part of our wedding. Thank you for sharing what you can do with all of the most important people on our lives.

Keep doing what you and the team do! You are amazing!!! Recommend with 20 stars 😉

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.
THEY'RE AWESOME!

2 Oct 2013 - Light Video Package    posted 10/19/2013

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!

Thanks so much to Alan and his team at Isle Media! They did an excellent job of capturing all our precious moments. From the very beginning Alan has been very accommodating – flexible meeting times/locations, very patient as we constantly revised our timeline, professional & respectful to all our family and friends. We LOVED the same day edit, we were so impressed by the quality of the video that Alan and his team were able to produce. We are very grateful that Alan was there for us and wouldn’t have it any other way. It was truly PERFECT!

Alan and his team were absolutely amazing. They were respectful and professional. We hardly noticed they were even there during the service. They just found a way to do their thing. They produced an unbelievable day of edit for our guests to see at our reception. All of our guest were raving about how awesome the video was. We have had a number of our friends ask for his card b/c they were so impressed. Hands down it was the most professional, well done wedding video I have ever seen. We are so happy and recommend Isle Media to anyone looking for a well done video capturing their wedding day.

My husband and I have only GREAT things to say about Isle Media and their staff. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience working with them for our wedding.

Alan and his staff were on time, extremely professional, and very easy to work with. They made my husband and I feel extremely comfortable and made the whole day fun for us. We never once felt forced or staged, Alan did a wonderful job capturing all of the special moments and special people at our wedding. Our video captures our personalities and love for each-other perfectly and we will cherish it forever. The work and talent that went into capturing our wedding day was beyond amazing. Words can not describe how beautiful the video came out.

Our family, friends and even our wedding venue RAVED about how amazing our videographers were. Alan and the Isle Media staff are all extremely talented and have amazing gifts, and we were so happy to have them be apart of our special day.

Videography Services    posted 9/13/2013

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!

You won't be disappointed!!    posted 9/5/2013 (updated 9/6/2013)

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! But don’t worry the rain stopped before our ceremony and was clear for the rest of the night. I don’t think I ever saw her rest the entire day, but yet she still had so much energy and was there to capture 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!

Best Decision Made for Photo, Video and Styling!!!    posted 8/17/2013

We could not have been more CONFIDENT and blessed by our decision to go with Isle Media! When it came time to choose a Photographer and Videographer for the wedding, I only knew a couple vendors (Isle Media being one of them). I remembered seeing their work first hand at other weddings I've been to. Since I enjoyed the videos and pictures so much we decided to put them as our top choice. I did my research and look at their previous events - they all looked great, so I was sold! One thing off my list of 'to-do's'! But of course, after going to all the expos and planning the other parts of the wedding, you can't help but see other photographers/videographers work and what they have to offer, right?. So, although my choice was Isle Media, I didn't contact them right away. I spent hours looking at other vendors video samples and pictures not to only see their work, but to also get ideas of how we'd like our video and pictures to turn out with whomever we chose. But after all that researching, I still preferred Isle Media's work over the others. So, I sent my inquiry!

Alan responded to our request so promptly! He was great in answering all my questions, very professional in handling our requests and communicating to us what's important in capturing our special day. I instantly felt at peace and cared for - it wasn't a sales pitch or intimidating at all. Amidst our planning, we needed a hair and make up stylist for the bridal party. Another great thing about Isle Media is that they ofter this service as well! He put me in contact with Zairrah who was also prompt in getting back to me regarding the kind of look we wanted at the wedding and scheduling a trial (which is a must, trust me, you'll feel that much more confident in your choice!). Once thing that I was impressed by was their follow up before the wedding day. Reese, who would also be part of the team at our wedding wanted to see how things were going and wanted to know more about Brad and I. This really showed me how much they care about the bride and groom and how they want to make the video and pictures more about us and who we are as a couple (verses just snapping a bunch of random pictures).

On the day of wedding, it was raining, the clouds were out and no sign of the sun - of course, this worried me. Brad and I wanted a lot of pictures outside with the sun. Thankful the rain and clouds held up and we were able to take a lot of pictures outside. But, when the rain and clouds came back, that didn't stop Isle Media from doing their work and capturing GREAT photos! The Same Day Edit video was amazing as well! Isle Media is a group of talented professionals who know how to make the day look that much more special. They were fun and easy going, made us laugh. At the end of the day, you'll pretty much have your spouse, the memories and the photo/video of the wedding. There's no skimping on the choice of photography and video. It's well worth the investment that will last forever. Their prices were great too! I got previews of some photos and a link to our SDE video - and we are SO HAPPY to have gone with Isle Media! They surpassed our expectations and have made our wedding day that much more enjoyable! :)

So Good    posted 8/9/2013

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!
