Hey there sunshine! We are so very happy that you came to our online home to look around at what we do, who we serve and what we are all about! We're a husband and wife team who took a sign from our first little girl, packed up everything we had, moved to the Outer Banks and changed the course of our entire lives. We believe in salt air breathing, sea glass hunting, in our three tiny daughters that we lovingly refer to as the Mermaid Mafia and that the nerd really can get the girl...
or so Mike says :)

Welcome!

These are my people! We call ourselves the five waves and you can usually find us looking for sea glass and getting salty by the sea or cozied up in our salt box on the water for "Friday fun nights" or if we're being honest, breaking up sister fights that usually end in tears and hugs and laughing delirium because hey, it's sisterhood :)

GROWING! 

A few years ago, Mike and I found ourselves repeatedly in the same arguments. It wasn't over one big thing, rather lots and lots of little things that added up to FEEL big. We were frustrated. We were confused, because we know that's not us. We finally decided to pinpoint the issue and realized it was lack of communication when it came to GENERAL life tasks. Out of this tough place in our relationship, our LISTS were born and they have helped hundreds of other women & families get on track with all of the day-to-day, weekly, monthly and yearly things that are forgotten about, done too late or expected to be done by the other adult in the house! We also created lists for new moms, lists for traveling and MORE! Head to the Five Waves Shop to browse...we even have some free downloads & phone backgrounds there for you, too!

Amanda is absolutely incredible! The second you meet her it's like you've known her forever. She is so kind, accommodating, and thoughtful! On your wedding day you spend a good amount of time with your photographer and I can tell you there is no one I would have rather spent a lot of our day with then Amanda and her husband, Mike. We were staying in the Outerbanks for the week before the wedding and when our section of OBX flooded earlier in the week she was the first to message me and check to see if everything was OK and if she could do anything for us. She goes above and beyond to make your day as amazing as it can be. Our pictures are ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! There are so many for us to look at and share with our families and friends. She is an incredible person and you would be so lucky to have her be a part of your special day! Could not recommend her more!

A SWEET REVIEW FROM: 

Going into the wedding planning process I knew that photography was going to be one of our our larger budget items. The importance of having images that capture your day from start to finish was so important to me. Once all the parties, gifts and Instagram likes fade- I wanted a piece of the day, our day to share with my children and their children. I had followed Amanda on social media for some time and had always felt connected to her story and her love of our favorite place. I thought her photos were beautiful and her family was adorable, but never in my life did I think that by connecting with her via email (the best way to get on touch with her - amanda@amandahedgepeth.com) would change my life. Yes, that may sound dramatic, but if you are looking for a photographer that loves, love. Who loves and serves her clients fiercely, who can make your love story jump out of a photo - Amanda is your girl! I can't thank her and Mike enough for their guidance, patience and ability to harness their God given talents in a way that makes everyone around them feel like a million bucks. I would get married again tomorrow and have joked with my husband that it's time to start planning another wedding and one of the sole reasons would be so we could continue to see and work with Amanda! So, if you are on the fence about a photographer it's time to climb down off that fence and commit to an experience that will truly last a lifetime.
