We weren't sure videography would fit into our budget and started the conversation with Zest/Little Sprinkle pretty close to our ceremony on Shipwrecks Beach. WOW! We could not be more pleased and impressed with Michelle's professionalism and talent. Her reputation certainly precedes her and she delivers! We love the look and feel of our video and the memories that she captures. All of the details - including having a lapel mic - ensured a high-quality video that we shared with friends and family to commemorate our special day. Even her intake sheet is personal and makes you feel like she's really paying attention and setting you up for the best experience possible. We highly recommend Zest Kauai / Little Sprinkle Films - you will be so thrilled that you have video of your special day!
Michelle with Zest Kauai was awesome! We were very happy with the quality of our wedding video. We had a very small beach ceremony and it was captured perfectly. The value for the money was also great for our needs. I would definitely recommend!
Michelle was a dream of a vendor to work with! She was extremely responsive, went above and beyond to ensure we got our video in time for a local party, and was just told over all professional. Each time I watch our video, tears do build up. Michelle did such a great job with capturing our day in the most special way.
Michelle went above and beyond! She is extremely talented! We discussed what kind of video we were looking for and Michelle just made our dream come true. She is a wonderful story teller and showcased our special day in the most magical way! These are videos my family, my husband and our future children will cherish forever! I cannot express how extraordinary Michelle was! This was by far the one thing in our entire wedding that was totally and completely what I wanted (more than I could have imagined) and worth the money!!!
Michelle it was an absolute pleasure to have you part of our day. You felt like one of the family, we were totally blown away when we received the video of our day. The editing was just spot on you did such a amazing job!
We just absolutely love it! If you want high quality for reasonable price pick zest Kauai! Michelle is very talented at what she does really gets to know you as a client and with minimul in put from us apart from picking music, made the most phenomenal video keepsake of our day. It is very professional looking and we just love it! Our family love it to! Again if you do have particulat preferences Michelle will work with this. No one better on Kauai than Zest Kauai for all of your event videography! Fantastic job and a pleasure to work with!

Hi Heidi!!! It was so much fun to meet you and Mark and your adorable family. I'm so happy that you loved the video. Mahalo!
It was a pleasure working with Michelle and her team. Jason and I were very comfortable and happy being filmed because the process was not envasive but rather easy going and fun. The finished video was touching, beautiful, and will last us a lifetime! We appreciate Michelle's sweet and accomadating personality and work ethic! We highly recommend Zest Video to anyone who wants to give themselves an amazing present!
Hi Tina! Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We had so much fun meeting you and capturing your day!
Thank you soooo much Michelle for the most gorgeous wedding video!! You captured every perfect moment and are truly the most talented videographer. I've seen plenty of wedding videos and you are by far the best! I wish I can post my video here for everyone to see! Our wedding video means the world to all our family and friends who weren't able to come to Kauai to celebrate. We will cherish this video for the rest of our lives. Much Mahalo & love, Matt & Jen
Absolutely!!! Without a doubt would I recommend Zest Kauai and I would ask for Michelle. She was so easy going. Very professional in her work. You never even knew she was there, she just did her job as pictures were being taken. Then she was so accommodating to have our video done on time for our wedding reception. I fell in love with our video. Every time I watch, it brings me back to that day like I am getting married all over again. Then the compliments we received at our reception were endless. People couldn't say enough about how beautiful it was. I really can't say enough great things about Michelle and the work she did! Mahalo Michelle!!!
Michelle was amazing to work with! We were supposed to get a 1-2 minute highlight with our package but we got a same-day edit video instead and it was more than what we could've expected. We absolutely loved it!!!! We were all smiles while we showed it at our wedding. We received our videos in a timely manner and it arrived in beautiful packaging with a lovely note from Michelle. We loved our videos as did our families. Thank you so much!!!!!!!! :)
Michelle was awesome and fun to work with. She's super sweet and detailed with everything. We love our video, couldnt have asked for anything more! Would recommend Zest Kauai to anyone.
The videographer was very discreet and professional. We hardly knew they were there. The finished product on the highlight
video was absolutely beautiful. We were so pleased with the end result.
We can't say enough about Michelle, she was fantastic to work with, very professional, friendly and down to earth. Our highlight video was absolutely beautiful, she did an amazing job of capturing our wedding day in a way that felt very special and personal to us. We received so many complements from friends and family about how stunning it was, and for those who could not be there, it made them feel as though they were there to share it with us. We highly recommend Zest Kauai, the quality of the work was amazing, the price was an excellent value, and it was a real pleasure to have Michelle as our videographer. Mahalo! :)
They were very behind the scenes. I look forward to seeing our final product!
Michelle at Zest Kauai is super sweet and so easy to work with. At first we were thinking of not doing a video to save money. But it turned out the video was the most amazing thing we spent our money on. Our video is absolutely breath taking. She truly captured who we really are. The quality of the video is beyond what we thought it would be. We have watched it almost every day since we recieved it. Definitely worth every penny.
Thank you so much Heather! I had so much fun working with you, Marco and your wonderful family. Mahalo!
Love love love Michelle, zest Kauai, Little Sprinkle. All of it!! Our elopement 11/5/14 couldn't be complete without Little Sprinkle/Zest video by Michelle. Not only was she professional, prompt and so so sooo personable that I felt like she was a friend I brought along with me. She's patient and kind and we just received the video and is in love with the quality. The value cannot beat it. We can't wait to go back to the island and hopefully meet with her again or offer her another project just to work with her again! We wish her and her business nothing but success and looking forward to seeing her again.
Michelle is just a dream to work with! She worked seamlessly with the photographer, Images by Liz, and captured the true spirit of Aloha in her work! I would highly recommend Michelle & Zest Kauai for your special day!
You and your family were so much fun! I hope you continue to enjoy watching your video! I loved all of your little touches - like the U of A cake and the funfetti.
Michelle did an awesome job with our wedding video! We were very impressed with the way everything was edited and put together. Michelle is also very professional, friendly, and easy to work with. We highly recommend Michelle at Zest Kauai to others!
My husband and I got married on Big Island in March 2014 and Michelle came all the way over from Kauai to capture our special day on film. Having been a big fan of her work on Vimeo for a long time, my expectations were high, but I would never ever have thought it would be possible to make a video as stunning as the one she created for us. You may think you're ordering a nice wedding video, but she actually delivers the fairy tale you've secretly been dreaming of! I still can't get my head around how wonderful our video is and how very much it reflects US, rather than being made using some kind of cookiecutter formula. And as if that wasn't enough, filming it was great fun, too. Michelle is really sweet, professional, creative, fast and super responsive (which was a huge reassurence for our destination wedding!). And to make things even more unbelievable, her services (including travel fees!) don't force you to sacrifice your life savings, either!! I had a really hard look around videographers in all the islands, but Michelle and Zest Kauai are hands down THE best! A measure of just how good she is: Working with her and seeing her video made me want to get married all over again, just so I could get another one of her videos made! I cannot recommend her highly enough!!!
Aw shucks, you're making me blush! Thank you so much for the wonderful review. You two were so much fun to meet and work with!
My wife and I were very pleased with Zest Kauai. Michelle was punctual and professional and great at capturing moments that we didn't even know happened. We have watched our videos over and over in the past few months. I'm so happy we decided to have a videographer. At first we were just going to have a photographer, but my mom convinced us to have it filmed, and I'm happy we did.
It was such a pleasure to work with Michelle from Zest. She emailed me right away after my initial inquiry and set up a phone conversation to go over any questions we might have. Her website was very easy to navigate through and her amazing work and friendly, flexible attitude were what convinced us that we wanted to hire her to shoot our wedding. We had an at home reception 3 weeks after our wedding and she was able to expedite the video edit in time to show our friends and family. She did a great job capturing all the emotions and beauty of our wedding. Her prices are very reasonable. You will not regret hiring Zest for your wedding videography!
When my now husband and I decided to elope to Hawaii, we knew we wanted to capture our special day so we could share at our reception and watch for years to come. Michelle was recommended by our wedding planner and from the first conversation, I knew we would be in good hands. On the day of the ceremony, she was so fun to work with and really made us feel at ease through the whole process. We received out video shortly after we returned home from our honeymoon and it was more perfect than I could have ever imagined! Her attention to detail and including the little moments made it perfect! We absolutely love our video and are so excited to share it with friends and family!
Hi Brandi! Thank you so much for the review. It was such an honor to be able to capture your wedding for all of your friends and family to see. I absolutely loved seeing the two of you together - so much love and a little bit of goofiness too - my favorite recipe for a marriage.
Love, Love, Love Michelle!!
My now hubby and I flew to Kauai and eloped on Oct 2 2013. As it was only the 2 of us we wanted to have a video for all our our family and friends to see and when I found her webisite I was blown away by the quality of videos! I contacted her via email and she was incredilby quick with her response which is a big plus. Not only did she help us with our video questions, she also recommended incredible vendors to us: Sam Mitzel (photography), Kelvin Ho (officiant), and Megan Mendoza (hair/makeup). As my hubby and I were planning this trip from CA her assistance made the process so much easier and calmed my nerves a lot. She also met us a few days before the wedding for coffee to discuss how we'd like the ceremony to go, how she would work, what she'd capture, and that just made us feel so at ease! We spent several hours with Michelle the day of the ceremony and by the end of the day we felt like she was a friend we'd known forever, not just a vendor, which made it all that more special. And the icing on the cake is that her fees are incredibly affordable for a wedding videographer! Check out her site if you'd like to get a video of any special occasion! I cannot say enough good things about her, I wish she worked in CA she's so much fun - thank you Michelle!
Michelle was excellent, professional, and a pleasure to work with! The footage was great and she was very flexible. The videos she put together at the end of our wedding was spectacular! Highly recommended !
Michelle of Zest Kauai did the MOST amazing job capturing our wedding day and turning it in to an absolute masterpiece. She came highly recommended by Morgan Childs of Moana Events, and having known Michelle personally for many years, hiring her was an easy choice. To be honest, I was skeptical about needing a videographer, but after seeing just our highlight video alone, I couldn't imagine not having had Michelle there (in fact, I wish we had her stay longer!).
Capturing the words of our ceremony, the cocktail reception, our guests reactions when we entered the tent for the first time, the surprise hula I did for my husband, our first dance, and all of the other sounds and words of happiness was so important to me. But the magic really happens during the editing process, and Michelle did a superior job. She blended wonderful moments, words and music together seamlessly, creating a beautiful story of our special day.
Not only was the video she produced top-notch, Michelle was on time, professional, and completely inconspicuous (most of our guests saw the video and responded by saying, first, that it brought tears to their eyes and second, that they didn't even realize that we had a videographer there!). No small feat considering all of the cameras etc. that Michelle had with her that day. She was easy to communicate with both before and after the event, and finished our video quickly. When we received our hard-copy video in the mail, it was beautifully and thoughtfully wrapped with a hand-written note from Michelle and stunning still photos she took out from the video that were framed in the leather CD case the disc was in. From beginning to end, it was such a pleasure working with her.
We watch our video all the time and it is truly something that we will treasure for a lifetime. If there is one thing you make room for in your budget, make sure it's to have Zest Kauai there to capture your special day. Thank you Michelle!
I hesitated to book a videographer for my wedding day after seeing some of the videos other vendors had on their websites. The cheesy 90s music left a sour taste in my mouth. THEN I seen Zest Kauai. They are relatively new to the videography business on Kauai but can tell they will soon be requested by many. The music was contemporary and the video had just the right shots. Michelle was very easy to work with. Check out their website and you will not be disappointed!
