12 Hours Weekly, 8 Years Later | Salt Air Entrepreneur

I wish I could find a better word than FUNK, but funk’s gonna have to be it. For months I’ve been in the weirdest mental space (sharing this on Instagram stories and finding other moms that are in the SAME season, we are feeling weird together!) and after being a mom for the past almost…

Stephanie + Kyle | Currituck Club Wedding

The week before the wedding was calling for an entire week FILLED with rain, including Saturday. We know we can pull it off if it rains (like the wedding we shot the day before this one!) but we just HOPE it doesn’t, especially when the ceremony is at the golf course on the Currituck Club!…

Lauren + Nick | Virginia Cliffe Inn Wedding

When two photographers who were soaked for 8 hours straight can get in the car at the end of the night and say “that was an AMAZING wedding day” – you know it was above and beyond a TRULY great day!!! From start the finish, there was rain on Friday, June 7 in Glen Allen,…

Gladiators Sharing Joy | Life By The Sea

This world is a very broken place right now. I’m sure it always has been, but the news and social media bring the broken right to our attention front and center daily and it’s hard to see what kind of acts of violence or tragedy have happened since the last one 10 minutes prior and…

Quarterly RESETS + Instagram Breaks | Salt Air Entrepreneur

I have been a business owner for 8 years – and like mentioned on this blog previously, I actually went almost the ENTIRE duration of that without taking more than a week off of social media. Even when all three of our children were born, every few days at least I was still posting and…

Essential Oils + Budgeting | Outer Banks Oils

Two years ago, two big changes occurred in our lives right around the same time. One was very negative, and the other was very positive and honestly we had no idea how great it was about to be… it ended up being the catalyst to something amazing for us and we are SO thankful. We…

Jessica + Rob | Kill Devil Hills Engagements

What can I even say – the sweetest and most hilarious moments happened during this engagement session last night in Kill Devil Hills and these two are GOLDEN! The light was, too, and I wasn’t mad about that at all! Jessica and Rob don’t take life too seriously but they are seriously in love. I…

2020 Weddings | Amanda Hedgepeth Photography

Okay, so I’m really posting this finally…I KNOW, I just literally couldn’t bring myself to do it for weeks! Can I have the excuse of the three kids and running the nonprofit and the oil business and this photography business, too? No, I can’t – because I just kept putting this one off on purpose,…

Heather + Ben | Richmond Virginia Wedding

WOW. Where can we start, how do we write all of our feels out properly for these two, WHO in the world can summarize a day like this and do it well!?! This day was golden. From start to finish – a sunny March day with this big group of friends and family who are…

Stephanie + Kyle | Corolla Engagements

In Corolla on literally THE windiest day we’ve had in so long, I got to meet Stephanie & Kyle for their engagement session and we totally braved it together! This part of the island is really narrow and the beach AND sound were both like wind tunnels whipping us around and we totally made the…

What We Just Paid Off & $40K DOWN!!! | Dave Ramsey

You guys… January was productive and I mentioned a lot about what we did (nonprofit work, building an oil business, running Amanda Hedgepeth Photography & creating Workflow lists for photographers, etc) – but we only mentioned in a newsletter to our Salt Air Entrepreneur readers that we paid off $20K MORE IN DEBT!!! OUR SIENNA…

Up at 4:30 A.M. | Salt Air Entrepreneur

I know people who would shudder at this blog title, HA! But they are also the night owls who outdo me in staying up late. What do you MEAN you were up until 11pm!?!? LOL! I can’t even. I used to be a night owl and after Cammy started elementary school – we had to…
