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…

Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 5 Years!

This girl. If I could tell you how I feel about her – I think we would be talking for the rest of my life. She is sugar, and she’s biscuits, and she’s kindness and she’s gratitude and she’s caring and she’s LOVE. Ellie is love. She is charmingly awkward (is that me, too? LOL)…

Teal Heels & Gold Sweater Project | 3 Years | Autumn Jean

Okay this girl is just absolutely the wildest, fastest and most AWKWARD human we know, LOL! Autumn Jean, your off the wall comments and your crazy spirit and your kind heart have changed our lives. We can’t remember a day that you haven’t made us soar with joy. You are weird..weirder than all of us,…

White Sweater & Glittery Heels Project | 7 Years | Cammy Mae

Camryn Mae… you are like this tiny (yet tall, LOL) little force that continues to surprise and impress me daily. You read to your sisters, you get INSPIRED and continually dream up businesses you could run (and bring them to life like MacGyver with the most obscure items and it’s extremely incredible) and you are…

Free SIMPLE Grocery Budget Printable! | Dave Ramsey

I have been a photographer for eight years, we’ve shot over 130 weddings and we are almost fully booked for weddings this year and almost for sessions this summer, too. This is our biggest “thing”, what I think we will be most asked about – but it’s not, LOL! It’s not! It’s more likely I’ll…

Mallory + Joey | Morningside Inn Wedding

This day had me in all the feels during the days leading up to it and definitely throughout every second of this joyous occasion! This is the part where I start to feel two opposite emotions…excitement to document the day of a couple I love SO much getting married and dread for it to be…
