New Year, New blog!
Okay, I know that we are a little late for New Year, but we are still excited to announce a new chapter of our business: We are starting a blog!! This blog will detail things about what we, the A1T Productions & Photography Inc. family, do on a nearly daily basis. Whether it be cool jobs we are working on or just behind the scenes fun, we want to share it with you guys! We can also post some tips and tricks we have learned throughout our adventures, if that’s something you’re interested in.
In this first post, I want to talk a little about who we are, the A1T Productions & Photography Inc. Family. While we do have an about us page, it’s too formal and doesn’t give enough information, in my opinion. So here I thought was a good, little more relaxed way to introduce ourselves.
My name is Celyna (pronounced: Selena) and I am the Vice President of A1T Productions & Photography Inc. I will be the one writing out most of the blog posts and communicating with our guests as that is what I do best. I study within the hospitality industry and my dream is to become an event planner, however, right now, I am running a lot of the behind the scenes business stuff, like writing emails, communicating with clients, assisting on shoots, doing all sorts of things. There is really never a dull moment in my life. I am 19 years old (young I know), but I work very hard to get what I need done. I love all things Disney, and if the opportunity to ever work with Disney comes across me I will jump at it with no hesitation, bonus points if it has anything to do with Beauty and the Beast. I love Dr. Pepper (the soda) and am hardly ever seen without one. There are tons of other little things I can share about myself, but I think I’ll end this portion of talking about myself here. I’m sure that through the future blog posts you guys will get to know me better anyways.
Next, let’s talk about Jeremy, the President of the business. Jeremy is an amazing camera operator and filmmaker, many of our previous clients can attest to that, but that’s not all he can do. Jeremy is a very social person, he loves talking to anyone he can. This is what makes most of our jobs fun. He always leaves believing that our clients are not just clients, but rather they are more like friends. However Jeremy doesn’t call them friends, he calls them family. He is very skilled, and always put his best foot forward. He can have a bit of a temper, but he hardly lets it show, he always does the best he can with what he has, and if he know he can do better he always does. He has a very creative mind, somehow he can always see the big picture and manage to figure out exactly what he needs to achieve the vision he created in his head. It’s actually really cool to see. He is also very adventurous, he hates boring, unless there is good food of course. He loves film making and his job because you never really know what is going to come next. One day we could be filming a proposal, the next a circus act, then a conference, then a famous persons concert. He loves the challenge of making each video different but with the same amazing quality. It’s one of the things I love most about him. But enough about him for now, he will also continue to be in the blog posts, so I’m sure that you will hear more about him later.
Jeremy and I do have other crew (more like family) members that you will be introduced to later on. However for now, I think meeting the two of us is enough.
Last thing you guys should know about us. We pride ourselves on being a family owned business, Jeremy and I are a family, currently he is my boyfriend, soon to be fiance, then husband. We have an amazing team that we treat like family. I know most people say, don’t work with family, your husband or wife because you never know what could happen. But Jeremy and I have weighed the cost versus the benefits, we have faith that we will always be together, but more importantly, even if we aren’t, the business comes first. We care about our clients and our team too much to let anything get in the way of the great things we have created. Even if he and I don’t stay together we are still always going to be family. He and I balance each other out, what he is not good at I am, and what I’m not good at he is. We pick up the slack for one and other. We work better as a team then we ever could apart. Our family has big goals for the future, we hope that you will stick with us as we continue our adventures together.
