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,…

Courtney + Will | Rustic Riverside on the Potomac Wedding

At the end of the night… Mike and I drove down the foggy dirt road and said over and over, “that day was perfect”. I mean – you guys, even with the unexpected slight heat wave on an October Sunday wedding day in beautiful Leesburg at this top notch venue… this wedding couldn’t have gone…

Vacation Marriage | Life By The Sea

We hear it all the time (and I’m sure you have, too) … “marriage is work”. And, I get what most people mean by this. It’s tough to combine your things and your life and your time with another person and it’s not going to be seamless. It’ll require some (lots of) compromise, communication, etc….

The Biggest & Weirdest Behind The Scenes YET | Bye 2017!

I’m not quite sure how I got to be so special.

Four weeks ago today, I was in and out of consciousness, terrified that my life would never get back to what it used to be. The impact of what I experienced on my face especially made me think I may not even be able to see again, or hear again. Right after the crash, I…

Amanda + Cody | Teal and Blush Arbor’s Events Wedding

We can’t really say enough about this amazing day, but we’re going to try. The best thing is that we don’t┬áhave to say much because it’s all said beautifully in these images! There are a lot of happy tears and moments that I will never forget and I never have to because of the beauty…

4 Tools That SAVE My Business! | Photography

The thing about this blog post is that I’ve pretty much written about ALL of these before on this blog, but just separately! In order to save the people who email and ask some time, I wanted to share the things that SAVE my business and changed the entire dynamic of how I organize, how…

Husband + Wife Team in 2016!! | Amanda Hedgepeth Photography

I have to be honest, I’m sitting here slightly shaking. I’m a LITTLE excited about what this blog post will mean for us and for the business! Mike is downstairs, being the best dad ever, as usual. I am utilizing office time and “taking care of business” like I do. It’s Sunday afternoon and we’ve…
