I am so incredibly glad that I chose Doug with Afterglow to shoot my wedding. I couldn't be more happy with the way that the wedding video turned out.
Doug was such a pleasure to work with. He was perfectly professional, totally thorough, and quite artistic with his video skills. Watching the video, I saw that he captured so much footage that I didn't even realize he was filming... He didn't miss any of the important moments and got even more than I expected!
My husband and I also decided to have Doug edit a highlights video montage of all the day's events, so that we could have a shorter account of our wedding to share with friends and family. We absolutely LOVED it!!! It was so sweet to have a little video that was so easily shared and he did a superb job of editing it. Many of our friends and family told us how moved they were by seeing the video, whether they were able to attend the wedding or not!
I would highly recommend Doug to anyone wanting video services and suggest checking out samples of his wedding highlight montages. I can imagine we will be watching and sharing that much more often than our full wedding video! :)

We were so pleased with our video from Doug and Afterglow Weddings Maui! Our wedding was the most special day, and our video really captured the intimacy and all the emotions we felt that day.
Since we eloped to Maui, it was wonderful to be able to show all of our friends and family at home our wedding. We had several guests comment during our at-home reception that our video made them feel like they were standing on the beach with us!
Communication with Doug was easy and prompt during planning, which we appreciated greatly from 3,600 miles away. Our video also arrived quickly and safely, in perfect time. Doug even emailed to make sure it had arrived! We will forever cherish our time on Maui, and are very thankful to Doug for his time, talent, and expertise. Mahalo!

Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding video!!! We can't thank you enough for the extra effort and attention that you gave to our special day. Every moment was captured on our video just flawlessly. When we had our reception back in Phoenix, we were able to play the video for all our friends and family that couldn't make it to Maui (thanks to you being able to expedite :) ) and they all told us they felt like they were there with us!
Our favorite part, which gave us goosebumps, was the section in the video while we were taking our photos. The song we chose, Leaky Little Boat by Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers was edited with the video just perfectly and captured our personalities and the beauty of the day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing our day and making sure the memories will last a lifetime. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn't change a thing! You are truly talented and we are so blessed to have had you there with us!
~Damaris & Kevin
Thank you so much, Doug, for the awesome video! It was really beautiful. We can really see that you took the time to create something amazing for us. We are absolutely thrilled with the results!
For us, this video is worth so much more than the photographs we also have. As you know, we are from the Netherlands, so we weren't able to bring any friends and family with us. With this video we could really share our moment with them. All of them felt like they were there, and everybody was really moved.
Due to the excitement of the day, we had forgotten about some parts of the ceremony. It was so great to be able to see it all again from the comfort of our home. Everything came back, and for a short moment, we felt like we were transported to the beautiful island of Maui again. This video is really precious to us. We can revisit our most special day of our life whenever we want, wherever we want.
I can wholeheartedly recommend everyone to get a video. Doug is a real professional, and the results are breathtaking. You won't regret it!

Douglas DeBoer was simply amazing, and an absolute pleasure to work with! Having an awesome videographer to capture the wedding was as priority to us, as many of our loved ones were not able to travel to Maui to join us on this special day. Doug was very professional and was open to our requests. He single-handedly captured great b-roll, footage of the details, and the main event with an artistic flare.
Not only was he great at filming and editing but he was able to complete his work in a timely manner. I have now had my video for a week and I have watched it more than 10 times! On top of this, Doug was great to work with as his calming demeanor diffused any bit of bridezilla I had within me.
Thank you Doug for capturing this memory for us as it will be cherished forever!
~Martha & Christian
We recently had Doug as our videographer for our wedding in April 2016 and cannot begin to express how blessed we are to have had his services. Doug has been nothing but kind, attentive, and professional and truly exceeded our expectations. The quality of his work is amazing, and has true movie-like quality that you can't find anywhere else. He also really made an effort to go above and beyond anything we asked of him, and created a beautiful slideshow for our wedding that brought the crowd to tears. We are also extremely pleased with the footage he took of our ceremony and reception, which is the best keepsake we have of our wedding day.
Mahalo Nui Doug for everything, you are remarkable!
~Chelsey & Dedrick
My husband and I had been planning a destination wedding in Maui with Indian traditional ceremony and events. We came across Doug and Afterglow Weddings Maui during our planning and immediately in our first interaction we felt like we had met the right person to video record our special memories. Doug was personable, interested in what we wanted and exactly what was important to us, he provided all the details of his services patiently and worked with us through great timely communication.
On the day of our wedding, we had lots of guests and activities going on, while people were a challenge to handle. Doug managed to keep it all under control and get amazing footage of our entire wedding! Doug captured every single important wedding ceremony highlight and provided us with various types / versions of the footage - unedited version in a hard drive, edited long movie length videos, and short montage / highlights video. Our families as well as my husband and I absolutely loved the work and enjoy watching the videos to relive our special memories!
Doug was very professional and added special touches of drone shots from above in the very perfect way during our various traditional wedding ceremony events! The drone shots and editing truly makes our wedding videos look nothing but spectacular.
We also needed some videos soon to showcase at our reception in India a month after the wedding, and Doug worked with us to provide the necessary footage in various levels of quality in time for our reception. Over 800 guests at our reception enjoyed watching the wedding videos there!! It was an unforgettable experience we will always cherish. :))
Thank you Doug, for capturing our lifetime memories and for a wonderful experience in the process!! We wish you lots of success ahead.

You couldn't hire a better wedding videographer than Doug at Afterglow Weddings in Maui. He was organized, professional, and communicated flawlessly the whole time prior, during, and after wedding. Being across the country with a 6 hour time difference we never once had an issue getting a hold of Doug, in fact he would email us before we had any questions and follow up close to our wedding to see how excited we were. He went over different pricing options for us to custom tailor to what we needed, had a preliminary and final wedding agreement, and was always communicating with us. He was genuinely excited for us to be getting married and we enjoyed his creativity and enthusiasm on our wedding day. He pays attention to details like music for your video, title, amount of mic/cameras needed. Doug at Afterglow Weddings exceeded any expectations we had. You couldn't get a better videographer for a big or small wedding than Doug!
Much Mahalo Doug
~Nicole & Joseph
Our wedding video that Doug created for us is absolutely incredible! He did an amazing job capturing the essence of our special day. It's like reliving the day in our own music video and it brings tears to our eyes every time we watch it. Sharing it with our family and friends on Facebook and DropBox was very simple and it enabled us to share our moment with those who were unable to come. Our wedding video will be cherished forever and was definitely money well spent! Thank you Doug!!
~Caren & Eric
Meeting Doug was from the beginning a peace of mind knowing that I would have the best memories of our Wedding day because of his professionalism from the first time we met. Our Wedding was a combination of 2 different nationalities, Mexican and Persian.
Doug was so talented to edit a wonderful final product with the patience to add the perfect combination of music from our different cultures, traditions and languages. He worked with me before and after the Wedding and we are thrilled to have awonderful memory of our Wedding Day. The moments are alive!
DOUG IS THE BEST!
~ Mary & Nader
We are extremely pleased with the memories that Doug has captured of such an important day in our lives. He put together a beautiful wedding DVD and as we sat down to watch it, a rush of memories came flooding back to us. The music is beautifully integrated, the production quality is high, and there are smooth transitions. Doug is professional, extremely flexible, and a joy to work with. We would highly recommend him for capturing such a special day in your life!
~ Kristina & Colin
Douglas from Afterglow Weddings Maui was awesome! He captured our wedding better than I ever have could hoped. I am so grateful we decided to get a videographer for our wedding. This is something my husband and I can keep and cherish for life. I highly recommend Douglas. He is talented, professional and responsible. We were both amazed how quickly Doug completed our video, consideringhow gorgeous everything came out.
~ Shayla & Trevor
Doug DeBoer was our wedding videographer in Maui. He was prompt and very kind and he also made us feel extremely comfortable. He used two camera's which made the video look very professional. Doug stayed with us until sunset and created a beautiful and heart warming wedding video.
As we got to know Doug, we found out he also produced music videos. Since I am a singer song writer and had my guitar with me, I asked him if he would make a video video to make the story in the song come alive. He went above and beyond the what I ever expected him to do. He took us to several awesome locations around the Maui to help create an incredible dramatic music video called "Open Your Heart", which you can find online to watch. Our experience with Doug was top notch. I would highly recommend him for any video work!

We could not be happier with our wedding video! Doug did an amazing job. Not only is the finished product absolutely beautiful, Doug was great at helping run the show during the wedding. We didn't hire a coordinator, and we really didn't have a solid plan on how we wanted to do it, and Doug very graciously acted as director and cinematographer (which we were so happy to have!) He's a true professional and super easy to work with. He had great ideas and was also happy to get whatever shots we wanted as well.
My husband and I decided to get married on a very small beach in South Maui and we wanted to have the ceremony just before sunset so that we could have both daytime and golden hour. Doug helped us time it all perfectly and we had a blast. We actually got to enjoy ourselves during the ceremony and afterwards, frolicking on the beach as the sun set because we knew we were in very good hands.
We actually had some challenging circumstances. The tide was high and our already small beach became super tiny, yet he was able to make it look really lovely. We got a little rained on, but you can't even tell. The sky was overcast, yet in the video, he was able to make the light look magical. Then, at just the perfect time, the sky gave us the most wonderful sunset with the sun coming out at the horizon and Doug got us into the perfect spot to capture our dream romantic video, sun setting, waves crashing, all that magic (and the photographers loved it too!)
All the while we had fun, just rolling with it all, laughing and feeling really cared for and celebrated. Doug is easy going, professional and it's clear he wants his clients to be happy. And he succeeded!
We wanted the video quickly to show family we were visiting just a couple of days after the event and he delivered a fantastically edited version of the full ceremony and a wedding highlights video that is just breathtaking! Some of our friends even said it look almost too perfect! (But we think it's just the right amount of perfect!)
~ Heather & Davor
We just wanted to say thank you very much for the wonderful video. Your work is amazing! We've watched the video about 5 times today, especially the highlights section. We love the way you captured everything and did the story of our wedding to our song. Words can't thank you enough. We can't wait to go back to Maui and we will definitely have you do our anniversary video when the time comes. Thank you!
~Louis & Christine
We are so grateful to have found Doug of Afterglow Weddings! We knew we wanted to have our ceremony documented and a highlight video, and we are so glad we have this to treasure always. Doug was very professional and stealth--we did not even notice him recording! He created a wonderful video with great angles, even with our minister who blocked views. We would HIGHLY recommend Doug to any couple looking for an affordable, talented videographer! You will not regret it!
~Marissa & Brendan
Doug was amazing! The video he shot and edited looked extremely professional, and he asked for our input many times. As for the wedding itself, he was superb at directing us, which gave us one less thing to worry about that day. We highly recommend his services!
~Robert & Greg
Doug was a pleasure work with. We had to hire him last minute and he was very accommodating and helpful. On the day of the wedding he came and introduced himself and made sure to discuss with me what it was that I wanted the video to be styled after. He went around videotaping every magical moment without being intrusive.
He asked us promptly via email about music selections and the we received the final cut within 3 weeks of the wedding. The video was wonderful and we love showing it to family and friends. I would not hesitate recommending Doug to other brides. Doug is a kind and warm soul and I enjoyed meeting him.
