Happy #weddingwednesday, Honeys! Wednesday is quickly becoming my favorite day of the week, thanks to this series! It is so much more fun knowing that I get to share all of the wedding-related fun we are having with all of you. I am trying not to give too much away (I want there to be plenty of surprises left for you, for Josh, and for anyone attending the wedding!), but it’s so tempting because I am getting SO excited!
Wedding Countdown: 74 Days!! >> >> Last week, I talked about how important it was to make our wedding…Continue Reading >
Happy #weddingwednesday, Honeys! This is such a fun series, and I am so excited to share bits of our hearts with you as we wind our way through this world of wedding planning. And, more importantly, marriage planning! Which leads me to Our Three M’s.
>> >> The first question people start asking you as you dive into planning is: “what do you want your wedding to look like?” This is usually followed with qualifiers: what’s your color palette, your inspiration images, your theme, etc. Admittedly, I was definitely having some trouble conjuring a complete visual out of thin air….Continue Reading >
Hi, all! Josh here! We managed to finally snag a Canon 1DX Mark II – something I have had my eye on for some time now – and I cannot wait to tell you how much I love this thing after about a month with it.
(Be advised: I will go into nerd details and tech specs that won’t matter much to most people but a select few will enjoy them without a doubt!) Carrying on, after waiting for what seemed like an eternity to receive our copy (Silly Olympic photographers and their demands), I hastily unboxed her and headed out to a…Continue Reading >
Our first #handspunhoneys of 2016 were Brittany + Jake, aka the most adorable couple that ever was. These two share a love story that was meant to be captured in pages and put on the bookshelf right next to Jane Austen, Nicholas Sparks, and the like! Why the book metaphor, you ask? Well, because we fell in love with the theme of their special day! From the Save the Date that came in the form of an old-school library checkout slip to the seating chart that was organized in an old filing drawer to help you find your chapter (table!),…Continue Reading >
What better way to celebrate this #weddingwednesday than by introducing our newest blog series – A Handspun Wedding! >< >< >< >< I can’t help myself, friends. Wedding planning has ranged from perfect joy to complete overwhelm, encapsulating everything in between, and I am dying to share the adventure! It is becoming more and more common to see industry friends on the other side of the table as we embark on the engagement journey ourselves, and we are extremely lucky to come into this season with so much experience, knowledge, and friendships in this world of weddings. It seems only…Continue Reading >
We have had so many people ask what precautions we take to protect our footage so we felt we had to share it – everyone should be making data protection their first priority in any media heavy occupation – a wedding day is one thing you cannot afford to lose.
In almost every circumstance, videos are very important – so, when you are dealing with someone’s wedding, this brings an amplified emotional connection to any footage captured that day. You would never want to lose it, and therefore you do everything in your power to ensure its safety. Sadly, even with…Continue Reading >
So, if you hadn’t noticed, it has been a hot minute since we have been around. We usually call these little vacations from the world of media our Handspun Hiatus. But…honest is the best way to be, right?? Well then, let’s enter the Truth Zone together, friends: we did not intend to take a three month break from blogging. >< There, I said it! We were not planning on losing steam and slowing our progress in the blogosphere. But you know what? Life happened. More specifically, we got ENGAGED, y’all!!!!! (To see the amazing photos and film of this ridiculously…Continue Reading >
