Hi there, Bride!!  Today’s post is for you!  This is an accompanying post to the one I wrote recently for The School of Styling (which you can read here!) – I loved sharing our heart for finding meaning in beautiful moments, and wanted to expand on the ways a bride and groom specifically can create meaningful beauty on their own wedding day!  Not just so that you have beautiful pictures and film, but so that each memory you create is one filled with love, joy, and reverence.  We want these memories to fill you with warmth, and remind you of…

Handspun Honeys: Sarah + Brad

February 17, 2016

I know we say this every single time, but man we just love our Handspun Honeys!  At the end of September, Sarah and Brad tied the knot in the most beautiful ceremony at Meadowbrook Country Club.  Rain was imminent the entire day, but it was clear nothing was going to stop the smiles on either of their faces.  As the rain plan took over, the ceremony space was transformed by votive candles and flower petals everywhere you looked, and it created an intimate, romantic setting for these two lovebirds to say, “I do.” It was an honor to watch as…

The Challenge: February

February 15, 2016

Happy February, friends!!

It’s the month of love!  Valentine’s Day happens to be my favorite holiday.  It has been since I was very little!  I love swimming in a sea of pink, getting sick on all the heart-shaped candy, and endlessly telling everyone around me how much I care about them.  I am mushy.  Shameless and mushy.  But I digress. January flew by, and with a new month comes a new set of challenges!  We sat down at the end of January to assess how we did with our monthly challenges before deciding on this month’s.  We did, in my opinion, really well!! …

DJI Global, Phantom, Drone

The Evolution of Handspun Aerial Film Drones, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), quadcopters…whatever you feel compelled to call them,  they have become very prominent in this day and age.  As cinematographers, we would be remiss if we didn’t adapt to new technologies as they came along. We love filming in the air – just take a look at our Drone Highlights from the last year!  But, that is not to say that trekking into this new territory was easy or simple.  This is the hard-learned (and expensive) story of getting into aerial cinematography, along with my opinions on how what we…

We wanted to share our some of our favorite drone footage from the year with you – we have had a blast traveling with and flying our DJI Inspire 1, and it has been so good to us!  Although I am still a little skittish when it comes to taking the controls, Josh has been killing it for a long time now, and after two and a half years of drone pilot experience, he is at the top of his game!

Drone shots are our favorite tidbit to throw into a wedding highlight film, because you get such a grand…

Sometimes I wonder how many brides in the midst of planning are singing Sam Smith in their head: “I know I’m not the only one.”

Not the only bride planning their wedding, that is.  Now, I am sure we have all met our fair share of brides who are convinced that they ARE the only one, and their stakes are life-or-death, all the time.  But I like to think that Bridezillas are on the decline, and as a result, almost every couple we meet is sweet and pretty down-to-earth.

So, what is the issue?  Unless you are somehow working miracles,…

Today’s blog comes as a result of being in the midst of engagement season, and a lot of inquiries coming our way.  We love getting contacted by brides – we are always excited to meet potential #handspunhoneys, and we love that these brides have already decided that cinematography is a priority for them!!

One question that has been coming up a lot has to do with what is included in our highest package.  This package includes a feature-length film that spans between an twenty and forty minutes, includes every part of the bride and groom’s day, and is edited to correct wonky colors and…
