About

I have loved film making and art since I was a kid. My actual videography career started when I was a professional inline skater and I would make skate videos for my sponsors. Shortly after I started producing videos for other athletes and TV segments, then weddings. I further honed my craft living on the East Coast working with some of the world’s best wedding videographers in Philadelphia and New Jersey.

Now fifteen years later, I am experienced in everything from simple beach weddings to elegant multi-day weddings, same day edits, commercial projects, corporate events, action sports segments & music videos. I am also a licensed commercial drone pilot, my Drone Maui film was featured in the LA Film Festival. His accolades include: awarded Best Wedding Cinematographer in Hawaii by Borrowed and Blue, The Knot Best of Weddings award for the last four years, The Knot Hall of Fame Award and WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award for the last eight years.

I chose the name HI FOCUSED not only how it refers to a camera lens and Hawaii, but in the mentality my team and I have towards the craft. We are highly focused on all the aspects of the production from getting to know each of you, to thorough pre-production, artistically filming your day, meticulous editing and finally, beautiful packaging and speedy delivery. Our conscientious process shows in our hundreds of rave all-five star reviews. In fact we have never received a review less than five stars!

It’s been an amazing journey that I’m truly thankful for. 
Making wedding films isn’t just a job for me; it’s an art that I passionately care about.
I feel very blessed to be able to do what I love every day.

HI FOCUSED has a collection of wedding packages or we can tailor you a custom package to your vision.

    Stunning Video that Captures an Intimate, Personal Story

    My girl was getting married in a tropical paradise called Maui. Capturing these memories was paramount to me so hiring the right videographer was a high priority. I watched every video of every videographer available on island. HIFOCUSED and Jordan Nagasako were the best combination of all that I was looking for: stunning professional quality films in terms of video, audio and editing, incredibly emotional storytelling, having a commercial drone pilot license for those gorgeous flyovers, and awesome reviews. Jordan had worked with the wedding planner and the photographer before, and was very familiar with the venue, which was such a seamless bonus. He was also a consummate professional with a very personal touch, answering all my questions by email or on the phone himself so that I felt very comfortable working with him. After all my due diligence, I knew he was the one.

    Once he was chosen, Jordan sent a detailed questionnaire to make sure that he and his team were prepared and knew what shots my daughter wanted, and all the details of what was happening when. He came with 2 assistants and a ton of video and audio equipment so that he could get high quality video from different angles and sound for the ceremony and the toasts. Amazingly the whole team did their job so quietly and blended in so well you hardly knew they were there.

    It was a magical, whirlwind wedding with fabulous photographs, so the bar was set high. Three weeks after the wedding, Jordan said that there was so much good material did I want to do an 8-minute video instead of the 4-minute video and did I have priorities of what to include? I took a leap of faith and went with the 8-minute video. Seven weeks after the wedding we got the finished product.

    I was speechless at just how amazing the wedding video was, and he far exceeded all my expectations of what I might see! I couldn’t imagine what I would have cut out if it was half as long. What he produced was priceless and I will be forever grateful for his true gift to capture and combine such beautiful, joyful, and tender memories into such an intimate, unique story that included totally cool drone shots of the venue and a lovely soundtrack. I have watched it so many times already and I cry every time as I remember and then find new things to see and experience. I did find one small edit that I wanted, which Jordan fixed immediately and without charge.

    After all the worry, anticipation, and waiting, it was comforting to have Jordan to handle something so important to me with class and professionalism. I would hire HIFOCUSED and Jordan in a microsecond without any reservations.

    Gracefully documented by Hi Focused!

    Hi Focused Cinematography attending our wedding was one of the best things that happened that day! Jordan and his team seemed to fit in so effortlessly into our wedding event. You can tell they are very artistic and thoughtful in their choices of angels and shots, and that was completely evident in our film! It was a blessing to have Hi Focused there because of the memories that we will cherish forever.

    We were on the fence about getting video for our wedding, but we made a last minute decision and wow are we glad we did! There are so many moments that we missed on our day because of the busyness and chatting with friends and family. Finally getting to see the laughs between close friends and family, the drone footage showing the beautiful scenery, and the little moments we had as a couple was so special.

    We truly can't wait to share this film with our kids one day, and watch it every year in remembrance of our favorite day! We highly recommend the Hi Focused team for any event you would like to remember and cherish. They truly have a gift at what they do and I am so glad we were able to have them on our wedding day.
    Thanks Hi Focused team for everything!

    The team at Hi Focused Cinematography is stellar! I have worked with them on some rather large weddings. They are great communicators and I feel like we all work as a team. Supporting each other through the shoot and feeding off each others creative flow. They are meticulous and thoughtful with their angles. And I have seen the finished products of projects we have done together and they are gorgeous.
