Handspun Honeys: Kathryn + Gil

February 24, 2016

It is crazy to think that these two Honeys were our last pair of 2015!  What a whirlwind of a year it was.  We could not have been blessed with a more perfect couple to celebrate our last wedding with.  Kathryn is an absolute soul sister with a heart of gold, a goofy sense of humor, endless bubbly energy, and a gorgeous smile to top it all off!  When found her that mornng in a charming cabin with a gorgeous view of the Potomac, it seemed like her makeup artist was having trouble getting her to sit still as she…

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…
