1) Mercedes & Craig F.
We had our wedding at beautiful Matangi Private Island Resort.
We believe that Yoshi's camera took one to two photos per second. Yoshi knew exactly what to photograph and when to do it. He captured the setting in a way that the photos tell the story of our special day all over again. The day after our wedding we received an email with 33 of the thousands of photos that Yoshi took before, during and after our wedding ceremony.
Some of our relatives and friends tell us that they feel like they were present during the ceremony because of all of the wonderful photos Yoshi took.
Yoshi agreed to meet us at Nadi Airport to deliver our photos the day of our departure. We were “blown away” with his work. If we have to get marry again– we would definitely hire Yoshi again. Yoshi is a friendly, reliable and most importantly a VERY PROFESSIONAL photographer. Thank you!!
Muchas Gracias! Vinaka Vaka Levu!
2) Britt & Patrick
The expectations were high. We obviously hoped that our photographer
Yoshi would create the most beautiful pictures of our wedding in Fiji.
Also because we had no family and friends around and we were going
to be fully depending on his work to show people what our day was
But Yoshi exceeded our expectations! We are more than pleased with
his work; it is Super!
On top of the fact that Yoshi clearly is a professional we really
appreciated him very much as a person. He knows how to make people
feel comfortable and we believe that this also shows on the pictures.
Last but not least we would like to point out his commitment as he
managed to deliver results quickly so that we could mail "proof" to
our relatives and friends at home (some 10,000 miles) away.

It is always great to hear from you my friend. It is our honor to
have you use our wedding photos in your website and/or any other brochure.
We have received so many compliments from the professional photography
& the perfect color of each photograph. You are truly an expert
in photography and an artist in your profession.
We again want to thank you for helping us celebrate our wedding. If
you or your family are ever in the State of Colorado, you have a home
here to visit and stay to recuperate.

Our guests were thrilled with Yoshis photos of their wedding
at Lalati Resort on Beqa Island. We all felt that Yoshi did a professional
job, and made the guests comfortable while posing. The outcome was
very high quality photos at a very reasonable price.
Thank you always, Yoshi.

6) Air Pacific Japanese In-flight Video –
Islands Business International, Abigail Covert
I am pleased to be writing this letter of recommendation for the Air Pacific (Japanese) in-flight video, which plays on all incoming flights from Narita.
I am the Advertising Executive. As such I organize and make bookings for companies that would like to advertise their products and service. The Director, Mr. Yoshi Kawai is in charge of the production every quarter.
We have known Mr Kawai for over five years. Immediately he impressed us with his Quality production, enthusiasm, competence and willingness to improve himself in a professional way.
Due to the growing professionalism and team leading skills Mr Kawai has, our company is confident and is happy to doing business with him.
To the present day he is personally responsible for planning, supervising and coordinating the quality work of producing the Japanese Video.
Yoshi appears to be creative, hardworking, responsible and willing to improve his professionalism and of cause to share his knowledge with other team colleagues.
7) FVB - Fiji Visitors Bureau, Director
of Marketing, Cherrill Watson
Mr. Yoshi Kawai, Director of Ocean Studio Fiji, has undertaken work
for the Fiji Islands Visitors Bureau.
His professional experience is evident as he was awarded the tender
to undertake 2006 “Fiji Me” Photo shoot for the various niches
such as Backpackers, Sports and Adventure, Weddings and Romance, Culture,
as well as generic images of Fiji. These images are being tiered and
tied into the overall branding of destinations.
Acquiring professional photographers based on overseas can be expensive,
Fiji based talent with likes of
Mr. Kawai who is of international stature too is cost effective. More
importantly, he is also able to meet deadlines and work within set
guidelines to meet needs.
We have had the privilege to work with Mr. Kawai and his production
has been very good.

My mom was really excited to be able to send them on to my grandparents
and not having to wait until we got back. The pictures are fantastic.
Thanks again for all your work. Your wife is as lovely as your work.
11) Marie & Ryan
Hi Yoshi, Thankyou so much for the video. We have
had a chance to look at it and it's perfect. You were really professional
and not the least bit invasive which I have found other videographers
to be. I like Cover photo as well.
12) Rebecca & Ben
We received our photo books last week. I wanted to let you know that
they are just brilliant. You picked some wonderful shots. Both our

anyone who is looking for a photographer in FIJI.
All the best
