Catherine + Ryan | Yorktown Beach Engagements

Well this golden light is PROOF it’s not a terrible thing when you initially get rained out! Rain and rescheduling sessions, it can be stressful. As photographers we feel pretty darn bad about it and it drives us crazy to have to put you guys through it! But, it will happen! One of my couples…

Christine + Mike | Virginia Beach Married Session

A couple of years ago, I had the absolute honor of working with a couple who treated me so well and did the best job making my job SO easy for me. Mike and Christine have a beautiful dynamic and it’s really fun to watch them just be around one another, there is always giggling…

An Actual Gift For Six Years | Happy Anniversary Mike!

Let me start by saying, this is not at all how I would expect to gift my husband for our six year anniversary. Gosh, I mean I just can’t think of any point in my life where I thought something like this would be the way to gift someone at all, and I feel really exposed…

Robyn + Mark | Virginia Beach Couples Session

There are so many images with real moments of laughter in this blog that I had to actually “tone it down” when it came to blogging too many, and that is NOT a bad problem to have! Look at these belly laughs! Look at Robyn on her tippy toes. Look at that perfect squeeze hug…

I Prayed For Creativity | Saltwater + Grace

I prayed for it. Last year, when I was in and out of the hospital. Even IN the hospital, laying there alone because Mike had to take the kids home because they wouldn’t all be able to sleep there while I was hooked up to the IV’s. I didn’t specifically say “God make me more…

Occasional Buddies | Raising Seastars

Because of the fact that I’m a straight up girl mama for life and never going to be anything else…I think it’s a great idea to have a series dedicated to raising daughters and what that dynamic and relationship looks like for us! It didn’t dawn on me until recently when we started to see…

2015 Weddings In Review! | Amanda Hedgepeth Photography

Putting this together ALWAYS gets me. I remember the swipe of the hotel keys, the mud on the wheels of my camera bag at the end of the night. The brides that got to feel the baby kick, the way he looked at her coming down the aisle like he was the luckiest man in…

Jordan + Daniel | Chesapeake Engagements

It was love at first email, and then even more at first phone call, but it was LOVE…for Jordan and I, haha! Seriously, this girl means so much to me already and I haven’t even shot her wedding yet…and I only recently met her in person shooting these perfect engagements! I love brides that I…
