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 >
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…Continue Reading >
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,…Continue Reading >
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…Continue Reading >
The Challenge. It sounds mysterious, right? Potentially daunting. Mostly vague. So, let’s back up.
This fall was a difficult one, and as the demands and pressures of a life overflowing with to-dos, obligations, work, and stress began to weigh on us, we let our relationship take a back seat to everything else we knew needed to get done. We were existing in the same space more often than not, but at some point we stopped being intentional about spending time talking to and loving on the other.
Let me tell you, friends: it sucked. We were unhappy, and yet at…Continue Reading >
Happy New Year, Honeys!
Who else is so excited to welcome 2016?? A new year brings a breath of fresh air, refreshed perspective, renewed resolve. Hope!! A new year is welcomed in with lots of hope for the future, and it’s intoxicating.
One of my favorite parts of starting a new year has become one of the traditions I picked up when I worked at Disney World! The idea is that you choose a word – any word, but just one – that you want to be your Word for the Year. For example, my Word of the Year in 2014 was Devoted. What…Continue Reading >
Happy Wednesday, friends!! Today we are sharing the highlight film we created for Designed + Styled – an incredible workshop created by Amanda Veronee and Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events.

And to top it all off, the day ended with headshot by Katelyn James, and one incredible styled shoot with an invitation suite by Jess Creates and the one and only Abby Grace as our model! The florals were all bright colors and…Continue Reading >
