No Rules. Just Fun.
Wedding days are awesome. There’s you, the rad couple who has decided to take the big leap. And there’s the cake, the vows, the friends and family, the toasts and all the love. (Did I mention cake?) Even though weddings can be awesome, they can also be a bit overwhelming at times. With Awesomesauce Photography in Richmond VA, you don’t have to do anything you don’t feel like doing. Perhaps you don’t want to do a bouquet toss, that’s ok. I want you to actually enjoy partying with your friends and eat the awesome meal you have meticulously chosen, not spend it taking portraits for hours. My goal is
to capture this EPIC day as it unfolds and not make the day just about the photos. We need to get a few formal photos for mom, but I have the experience to work quick and get you right back on that dance floor. I don’t want the photography aspect of the day to add stress. Often, the candid photos I snap end up being your favorite! With me, there are no rules. Just fun.

Linda is INCREDIBLE. And I'm not just saying this because our photos were wonderful. In fact, they are better than we could have imagined! She's incredible because she loves what she does and that's evident in the quality of her work. Linda captured our day in a way I didn't think was possible. The laughter, the funny moments, and THE DETAILS...her photos tell a story. A story, as a bride and groom, that is magical to see weeks and months later when you have already forgotten about the million decisions you had to make. She allows you to be transported back into that special day - just through a photo! She also has a way about her that makes you instantly feel comfortable. If you're self-conscious in front of the camera, then look no further for a photographer. Linda makes those fears and nerves disappear. Don't know where to put your hand? She'll help you. Don't know how to smile without looking constipated? She'll make you laugh and relax. By the end of our wedding day, it didn't feel like we had hired a stranger. Rather, it felt like we had a friend shoot our wedding. She was there 150% from beginning to end. Whatever question or concern we had, she always had an answer or suggestion and she was so fast to respond! Her vision, personality, creativity, and professionalism are top notch. Not to mention, her style and photos are absolutely beautiful. She is always the person I refer when friends ask about a photographer. She will also always be the person I talk to about photographing our family for years to come. Thank you, Linda for your outstanding work and just being YOU!Sent on 12/22/2017

Linda Spencer (Awesomesauce Photography) was the best choice I made
Meeting Linda Spencer: I met Linda at a wedding convention that was hosting a ton of vendors. I am a naturally shy and anxious person, so the idea of a photographer in general was hard for me. I was anxious about everything and met several photographers there that I didn't click with. And then I met Linda. Linda made me feel instantly at home and comfortable. She listened to my needs and I could tell she would be a good addition to our day. I had already decided to book her the moment I met her.Sent on 09/03/2019
During the wedding planning process: Linda was fantastic with communication. We met multiple times and she had everything. She also went above and beyond. She listened to me as I rambled on about the vision I had for the theme and logistics, but how I had no idea how to execute. The next day, she went above and beyond her photography duties, she had sent me emails with suggestions and ideas that we ended up using. The contract was straightforward and Linda was always honest with you. She gauged who I was and suggested the best photography package for us without trying to oversell.
On the wedding day: I think Linda was a major reason I got through the day. I was running on high anxiety. She kept making me laugh and kept me focused. She also reminded me to give myself some attention because I kept trying to focus on everybody else. My entire wedding party and family adored her. She was everywhere she needed to be and created other photo set ups that I would never have thought to ask for. She also endured ridiculous summer conditions to ensure she got the best pictures.
After the wedding: We were soon sent an online album of our photos and later sent an adorable box and card with a flash drive of our pictures. She had even snuck in a special treat for us by photoshopping one of our wedding party pictures with the theme we had (movies theme featuring King Kong & Godzilla... we're weird). It soon became our favorite picture and is now a canvas print in our home.
Overall: I loved Linda. She was the best decision I could have made for photography. She had the best personality, and delivered on the services we asked for. You cannot go wrong with choosing her.

Linda was so amazing! The photographer was one of the most important parts of our wedding to me. It was important to me to find somebody that really captured who we were, rather than somebody who took the same stock photos that you see from every other wedding. Linda, from awesomesauce photography, delivered that for us! Our engagement shoot was a relaxed day at the park with a couple beers. However, it was the hottest day of the year (or so it seemed 😂) and we were both sweating through our shirts completely. But when we got the photos back they were amazing! She managed to capture the best parts of the day without all the heat and sweat! Same goes for the wedding. It POURED almost the entire day, but she worked around it, got amazing pictures in indoor spots and shot our portraits during a short break in the rain. Despite the rush trying to beat the rain, our pictures capture exactly who we are as a couple and the candids capture our friends in their best lights. She even remembered a story from the day he first told me he loved me, and managed to recreate that picture for us! She went above and beyond for us and made our day more than perfect.Sent on 06/23/2019
