Do it! Hire Adam! You will be so happy you did!
Initially we were on the fence about having a videographer at all. Were we really going to watch the video over and again to make it worth it? Brides, grooms, lend me your ears: get a videographer! And do yourself a bigger favor and hire Adam! Your wedding day will be a complete blur. I joked to people afterwards, "was I even there??" Because I barely remember anything from the actual day (and no, it wasn't ALL due to the wine!) There are so many people there to wish you well, and you won't get to spend any real time with any of them because there will always be a half a million things happening at once. The whole wedding will be like a freight train that passes you by so quickly that you have no idea what happened. Those months (years?) of planning will all culminate in a vivid fever dream, and unless you have video evidence, you'll have no idea what happened. Videos will capture the experience in a way that still photos just can't (yes, a Captain Obvious statement, but oh so true).Sent on 12/10/2019
Why Adam? First, his rates are competitive. But you don't want to hire a professional just based on price. The quality of Adam's videos (yes, plural!) was astounding. He ended up doing three videos for us: a 10-minute highlight reel set to music, the nearly two-hour video of most of the event, and an adorable three-minute silent film he threw in for free because he was inspired by our Roaring 20's theme. All were jaw-droppingly moving, professional, and inspirational. I seriously cry every time I watch them. And I can't stop watching them...
Adam showed up at our house two hours before the wedding to catch those last getting ready moments. I didn't even know he was there. He blended in seamlessly to the experience. And he even pulled double-duty by taking me, my maid of honor, and our adorable canine ring-bearer with him to the venue!! Mad props for doubling as our Uber! That just goes to show the level of commitment Adam had to our experience. He captured the essence of the ceremony perfectly (with multiple cameras and mics), and he was out there in the middle of the dance floor to capture all those moments that I certainly could not remember even happened! He did little mini-interviews with our guests, and those were so stinkin' adorable! I just can't say enough good things about our experience with Adam. Oh, and he had everything back to us in just a few short weeks. I mean, class act, here, guys.
So let's review: get a videographer. You will not regret it. Save money and get sheet cakes and one smaller show cake if you need to, but do it. And hire Adam. Of all the things you have for your wedding, your photographer and videographer are the most important (well, maybe tied with your hair and makeup person b/c you need to look fabulous for these pics and videos). I promise you won't be able to remember all the great details of this massive event that you've likely poured your heart, soul, and credit score into over the past year, but if you have the right video guy (and photographer), you absolutely will!

Adam was amazing to work with. He worked around our budget and we can't appreciate it more. This is the second time I have worked with him and have seen his work. Once when I was a maid of honor and the second time, my own wedding. He listens to your opinion and what you want. He edited our video for our preferences. I will definitely be working with him again.Sent on 08/28/2020
