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…

Bree + Stephen | Maternity & Surprise Session!

Bree and Stephen, as you’re going to see, are way too good looking for their own good. Seriously, they are the CUTEST couple and I can appreciate a fun sized gal with a taller guy, it makes us look pretty tiny and adorable if you ask me! 🙂 But her smile is just one of…

VOW Magazine | Print Feature

I will forever be in debt to Kim Wadsworth and her kindness! I had been corresponding with her for months before we ever met, and she LOVED Heather and Steven’s classy black and white wedding at the Virginia Beach Convention Center..so here it is, our FIRST real wedding print feature!!! At the beginning of this year…

Christa + David | Virginia Beach Maternity

They are my hurricane Sandy couple. As in, they got married on the day it hit Hampton Roads big time and there were no outdoor portraits for their wedding day. One week later and after returning from Disney World on their honeymoon, they got back in their attire and we had another chance at bride and…

Missy + Eli | Cavalier Golf + Yacht Club Wedding

It’s so incredible to continuously work with these couples who in the absolute prime of their relationship. The anticipation of “I’m about to get MARRIED” radiates from both sides – the groom beyond excited to marry that lovely woman in his life and the bride knowing she is about to take that walk down the aisle…

Missy + Eli | Virginia Beach Engagements

This is one of those times it was SO great that the original date was a no go because the rain date was GORGEOUS for us! The light, the temperature even cooled down just right– the only thing we had to fight were mosquitos and a little bit of mother nature from barbs to sand…

Ellie’s First Beach Trip | Personal

This is like a Christening in our home. The FIRST toes in the sand, toes in the ocean, beach experience initiation. We’ve been twice before, but she never left the carrier! Yesterday, our littlest love, Miss Elliebells put her toes in the sand and geeked out in pure happiness! Oh my heart, to see her react…

Bethanie + Adam | Virginia Beach Anniversary

I’m so lucky, working with these two for the third time..I just consider myself SO lucky. They’re not just repeat clients they’re clients totally in love and that make my job SO full of joy. Seeing Adam so loving and snuggly with Bethanie who is as cute as they come, and a total laid back…

Sarah + Nelson | Virginia Beach Anniversary

I have to say how incredibly honored I am when ANYONE books me, of course, because it’s always an honor. It’s a big deal to capture someone’s life and them as they are in this moment. A big deal. But when a photographer books a photographer, it’s especially flattering! And when they drive from Maryland…

McKenzie + Tony | Virginia Beach Maternity

Cohen is almost here! Four weeks give or take a little, these two incredible people will become parents. I LOVE that they wanted to start having children shortly after they were married because Mike and I have a similar story and I can completely relate! To us, there is no greater joy than starting a…

Hannah Hildebrandt Events | Vendor Spotlight

When I first talked to Hannah and we decided to work on a styled shoot and projects together– I was already SO excited because she had visions galore. She had ideas in mind and anything I said idea wise she was able to bring to life but make look way better and classier than I…
