I've known Adam for a few years - he's always been very professional and thorough in communication. I'd recommend Be Authentic to anyone looking to work with a professional team who treats their customers like real people, not simply a means to an end.Nov 9, 2017Verified
Adam and his assistant were amazing the entire time. I was in last minute need of a videographer due to my original one falling through and I am glad that happened now! He offered efficiency, professional quality and knows what to and how to do it with excellence. I highly reccomend him and his company! You won't regret hiring them!Sep 20, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our process is comprised of three stages. Stage 1: Discovery In the discovery phase we familiarize ourselves with what you would like accomplish with your Service. This, we feel, is the most important part of our process. We do the research, we get to know your vision and plan for your event/project and then we make a plan for the service. Stage 2: The Capture Once we have established what you are trying to accomplish and have done the discovery, we set dates and times to do the capture. Whether it's a wedding, social media commercial, or family photo we treat every projects as if it's the most important one we will ever do. This has ensured that our clients have never had a bad thing to say about their experience with us. Stage 3: Delivery Once we have completed the capture portion we head back to the studio, load everything into the computer, and go to work editing and applying our personal touch to the final product. When we have completed this we upload all the proofs to our online digital gallery/video service and provide you with a link and a password to your personal gallery. Once you have approved them we package it all up and deliver it to you.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We are not formally trained photographers. We have simply put in thousands of hours actually professionally shooting and filming. We have shot over 100 different weddings and dozens of professional and personal filming situations from weddings to business commercials. We have the experience and knowledge to handle any of your small to medium sized projects or events.
