Oh my gosh I could easily call the Chesapeake Bay area home! We made 2 trips to the seaside (Annapolis, to be exact) this spring and this particular venue, The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, is one of the prettiest I’ve seen. The setting overlooks the bay and the seaside/nautical character is incorporated into all of the venue’s elements. I could go on and on about the views and the lovely details, but really our trip to film Aaron and Heather was much more than that! This couple is incredibly sweet and fun-loving! They were gracious hosts to us and each of their guests. Most importantly, they are without-a-doubt excited about spending their lives together. And really, bay views aside, THAT is what we’re there to capture. Enjoy!
What is this? A Feature Film on the Inkspot Crow blog? While it’s not typical for us to share our longer edits on our blog, we just couldn’t hold back this time. Nick and Courtney’s wedding day was too good not to share! What does a wedding planner and florist plan for her own wedding? You’re about to find out! Obviously no detail was missed, but what really stands out to us (besides C in her incredible dress!!) is this family’s love and compassion for one another.
Our ties to Courtney (and her family) are many. We first worked with Courtney and her Kickstand Events team at Amanda & Grady’s Wilmington wedding a few years ago. Then, we got to interview her dad for a pro-bono film we made this spring for Kramden Institute. So, by the time their wedding rolled around, we just loved Courtney and her family. She definitely found a perfect match in Nick, who is as kind and generous as can be.
I can’t forget to mention that this was our first time working with Theo Milo and his (about-to-be) bride Hannah. These two are just a lovely, talented and energetic pair of photographers. We’re so happy to have met them and wish them loads of great things at their own wedding very very soon!

Oh, friends, we are WAY behind on sharing new wedding films on our blog! It’s been a crazy few months. I’ll share an update on our growing family and new home soon, but this post isn’t about us. It’s about a dear couple we met this spring when we filmed their wedding in Annapolis, MD. The groom reached out to us for help surprising his bride with a wedding film. In fact, til the night before their wedding, she had no idea we’d be joining them on their wedding day! Drew shared loads of details about the two of them, their wedding plans and hopes for the future. We honestly felt like we knew Linda quite well before we even said “hello”. We SO enjoyed being in on this surprise and mostly enjoyed getting to know the couple and their families through the process, and over the weekend of their wedding. Also, can we talk about how much we LOVE Annapolis?
When the Kramden Institute was declared the winner of our first non-profit giveaway, we were pumped to get the chance to work with this great organization! Little did we know just how awesome they’d be. With a hard-working staff of just a few, and an army of dedicated volunteers (Geeks, as they are called), this organization makes a HUGE impact on students state-wide by awarding home computers to kids in need. The sheer amount of manpower and organization that goes into this mission is astounding, yet they pull it off with grace (and a lot of fun on the way)!
We had a blast interviewing award participants, volunteers and teachers as part of this project. We got to join in on a Wednesday Work Night where the magic happens, and witness 2 award days. BIG thanks to everyone who nominated Kramden to win this video. We are so glad we got to know this crew and document the impact of their work.
Oh, and we were named honorary Geeks of the Week! Thanks guys!
Happy 20th Anniversary to Triangle Transit! We became big fans of this organization a few years back, when Philip commuted to Raleigh from Chapel Hill, and I rode the bus to UNC from my apartment in Durham. We became “choice riders”, trading windshield time for personal time (reading, writing, studying). Triangle Transit has been making this area a better spot to live for two decades now, and they hired us to make a film to celebrate this momentous occasion. Many thanks to the outstanding staff we got to meet and work with on this project!

Next up: A 30-second TV spot we created using the footage and interviews we collected from the 20th Anniversary video. Also, Philip composed the snappy tune for this spot and gosh, it’s great to have him back creating music!
It’s our great pleasure to share this branding film we made with Priscilla of Orangerie Events! Priscilla launched a lovely new website last week, where our film has found its new home. We were thrilled to have the chance to get to know Priscilla better during the process of shooting her branding film, and we’re excited you’ll get to know a bit about her through watching what we have created. As you can see, she’s equal parts professional, stylish, nurturing, creative and fun!
