Hey there, we are Kent and Darlene and we love making wedding films!
We got hitched on September 24th, 2014! (see our video below)
Darlene is a Cleveland girl and I am a Chicago boy. In fact Chicago is where we met and fell in love. Awwwww! One day Darlene walked into our apartment on a miserable winter day and said "We are moving to Hawaii." I could tell she was not kidding so I said "OK" and the next thing we knew we were living on Maui.
We love to make wedding films! We are hopeless romantics and suckers for love. It's hard work but we get to meet so many incredible people from all over the world and create something truly special for them. Plus, working in some of the most beautiful spots in Hawaii is a pretty nice job perk.
We approach every wedding video with a filmmaker's sensibility and treat each film as a work of art. Capturing genuine moments, both big and small, is very important to us. We are not going to ask you to fake any moments or perform in any way. Forget we are there and enjoy your special day! One of the comments we hear all the time from our couples is that we were able to capture all the moments they would have otherwise missed and how grateful they are for that. This always puts a big smile on our faces.
Some important Kent & Darlene facts: We rescued our awesome cat, Miso, from the beach and we take A LOT of photos of her. Darlene studied visual communications in college and later went to culinary school. Kent went to film school, concentrating on cinematography. We watch a lot of documentaries. We love snorkeling, surfing, paddleboarding, hiking and eating pizza. We love antiques and things from the past, especially Midcentury Modern items. (As I'm typing this Darlene is literally taking more photos of Miso)
