Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve taken bookings 2 days before the big day, all the way out to three years before the wedding — we book all of our couples on a first-come, first-serve basis. All bookings require a signed contract along with minimum 20% deposit — this reserves our services on your wedding day​​. When you decide to move forward, we’ll just make sure we are available and move forward from there.

All of our bookings require a detailed wedding/event timeline prior to the day of, so those sorts of specifics generally aren’t worked out until much closer to the day of.

Yes, absolutely. All of our packages and services are customizable, our goal is to always find the best fit in terms of coverage for our couples. Please inquire for custom packages/pricing.

We do not charge any fees for shoots in the Kaneohe and/or Honolulu Area(s). However, North Shore and Leeward Oahu bookings are assessed a travel fee of $95 per team member – for anticipated traffic and associated travel time.

For multiple locations of coverage on a wedding day, we asses Multiple Location Fees for our Photography and/Or Videography Teams. These Fees are $150 and $185, respectively.​

For bookings requiring neighbor island travel, a $350/Per team member inter-island travel fee is assessed. Within each of these fees is that team members’ round trip tickets, luggage expenses, per diem, etc.

It’s absolutely our job to step in and pose you when necessary. Besides, it’s always fun posing subjects finding the right light, then coming away with a stunning image.

We say as a rule of thumb that wedding photos take 6-8 weeks from the day of the wedding, with Videos taking around 8-12 weeks from the day of the wedding. Engagement photos generally take around 3-5 weeks from the shoot date

Also to note, we are very active on all social media platforms. We’ll always post a “sneak peek” or “teaser” of recent wedding photos we’ve taken — We also host a vast majority of our couples’ wedding videos online via our Vimeo page.

Preferred method of payment is check, but we do accept cash and can also accommodate payment through all major Credit Cards. Please keep in mind that all CC transactions will be assessed a 5% processing fee.

Located in beautiful Honolulu Hawaii, we are here to help you in all of your video and photography needs. Whatever your special projects are we can make magic happen for you.

We hired Pure Media Hawaii to do our engagement shot as well as the day of our wedding. With all the pictures we received from our engagement were just beautiful especially the photos on the day of our wedding. So many great photos that we are having the hardest time selecting our photos for our album. So many great memories captured. Their team is really good at working with you even when on a time limit and they are still able to capture the greatest pictures. We got the package that offers videography as well but since I didn't request the mini highlight in the beginning we have not received it yet but I am sure it will be amazing just by the photos we received. My husband and I are grateful that they are still willing to create our mini highlight at such a last minute notice. If you are looking for excellent photos for your big special day I will would highly suggest this team. Mahalo!!read more

We were referred to Sean and Brandan from our wedding planner, and I must say I was a little iffy. Being that I tend to scope businesses on Yelp first and could not find them on Yelp. But my husband and I decided to take a chance and I must say, it was one of the best decisions we made. My primary contact in the beginning was with Sean. He was very professional, answered all of my questions, and I had the opportunity to see some of their work. We were very impressed. Since, we are from the Bay Area, I had the opportunity to go to Hawaii a month before we got married. Best decision I made. After meeting with Sean and Brandan, I knew for sure we made the right decision to hire them for our video and photography. We even decided to hire them prior to our wedding, for a family photo shoot. During our family shoot we worked with Brandan and his wife Kristian. They worked well with each other and even got our son to smile. Brandan even asked if we wanted to do some photos with just my husband and I, which I was not expecting. A big plus in my book, but an even bigger plus, he was able to email us a picture that night, so we could use at our wedding.Wedding day came, and they both arrived earlier then I was expecting, but a huge plus! Brandan and Sean synced well with each other, there were times, that I did not even know that they were still there, since they kind of did their own thing of capturing our dresses, and random shots, which I loved. I was kind of worried, that we would not be able to fit in all of the photos, since we needed to move our ceremony time earlier, but the guys succeeded in capturing our special moments. Even when it looked like it was going to rain in Ko'Olina, the guys were willing to wait it out, since I really wanted sunset photos, and once again they succeeded. I would recommend them if your looking for two of the nicest, professional easy to work with guys. They worked around our budget and were able to deliver beautiful photos and a video that captured our special day. They will always be our go to guys, when we need photos done in the future of our family. Thanks again, for capturing our best day ever!read more

On the day of Sean and Julio showed up on time, made us feel comfortable with the camera and made our day even more special! They are both so easy going and followed our wishes, I couldn't have asked for more! I have received the highlight video so far and it is really beautiful, exceeded my expectations!

Trying to put it into words how Pure Media handled my wedding is a difficult task! Words do not do their services justice but I will try my best! First time contacting them was easy and straightforward. The price I was given was the price I paid no hidden or unexpected costs. Meeting them made me even more excited for my wedding day. It felt like old friends were my photographers! Easy to work with and captured exactly what I wanted for them to focus on. I was amazed at how easy they made it for us! The cake as I requested had a mini photoshoot of its own! I was completely blown away. Seeing the video and photos made it worth every single penny! Prompt and courteous never once did I worry about their services or if they will arrive on time. The video just captured the best day of our lives and beautifully put together. It brought my husband and I to tears it was just perfect! I would like them to do every one of my big events going forward!If you want your special event to be captured by the best contact Pure Media Hawaii!read more

Trying to put it into words how Pure Media handled my wedding is a difficult task! Words do not do their services justice but I will try my best! First time contacting them was easy and straightforward. The price I was given was the price I paid no hidden or unexpected costs. Meeting them made me even more excited for my wedding day. It felt like old friends were my photographers! Easy to work with and captured exactly what I wanted for them to focus on. I was amazed at how easy they made it for us! The cake as I requested had a mini photoshoot of its own! I was completely blown away. Seeing the video and photos made it worth every single penny! Prompt and courteous never once did I worry about their services or if they will arrive on time. The video just captured the best day of our lives and beautifully put together. It brought my husband and I to tears it was just perfect! I would like them to do every one of my big events going forward!If you want your special event to be captured by the best contact Pure Media Hawaii!read more
