Joel Guy lives and breathes Kauai. Born and raised on the island, his roots run deep. Humbled by Kaua’i’s beauty, and grateful to call this paradise “home”, Joel understands the Garden Island’s many gifts and nuances as only a local can, having spent over four decades deepening his love affair with Kauai, becoming ever more intimate with the beauty, magic, and deep culture. Joel strives to live “Aloha”, bringing love, respect and deeply ethical values to all he does. He is incredibly active within the community, working hard to serve and preserve Kauai as President of The Hanalei to Haena Community Association and Chair for Grants and Aid Committee on the Hawaii State Foundation of Culture and Arts.
Joel began making films in 2002. His impressive resume includes major advertizing campaigns for Steve Madden Shoes and Tori Praver Bikinis, as well as the award-winning annual marketing campaign for the Kauai Visitors Bureau. He’s worked extensively with big wave surfing legend Laird Hamilton and has traversed the globe as a travel filmmaker, documenting 3-time World Surfing Champion, and local Kauai boy, Andy Irons as his personal videographer. You can view much of Joel’s work at Grass Shack Productions: www.hanaleishack.com. Joel loves film, and Joel loves Kauai. Wedding Videos Kauai allows him stay at home and do the work that feeds his soul, combining his two great loves in exciting and creative ways. Inspired by the enchanting beauty of Kauai, Joel uses his cameras to capture that awe-inspiring moment when Kauai’s natural splendor and the divine mystery of love converge.
“We are all so fortunate to get to live here. Thank you for coming to Kauai. It gives me the opportunity to do what I love in the place I love!” – Joel Guy
