About

No Rules. Just Fun.

Wedding days are awesome. There鈥檚 you, the rad couple who has decided to take the big leap. And there鈥檚 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鈥檛 have to do anything you don鈥檛 feel like doing. Perhaps you don鈥檛 want to do a bouquet toss, that鈥檚 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鈥檛 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.

    A Perfect Experience!

    Linda was absolutely phenomenal!! Her candid photos are initially what caught my and my husband鈥檚 attention. We had told her during our primary interview that we both felt awkward posing in front of the camera, but she gave great directions. She did a terrific job following the action throughout the day to capture both the emotional and goofy moments. She has a great eye for finding interesting backgrounds, framing the shots, and engaging the people she鈥檚 photographing. Linda was very communicative, detailed oriented, and organized, which was a HUGE help in both preparing for the wedding and keeping us on schedule the day of. She went absolutely above and beyond for us. We couldn鈥檛 recommend her more!

    My favorite vendor from our wedding!

    Linda, you were amazing! I can't thank you enough for keeping us on schedule, and for being accountable for us. You stepped in where others were missing, and it was seamless and made the whole event perfect. I had read reviews where people said you were essentially a day-of coordinator in addition to being the photographer, and I can confirm that you filled that role for us as well. Also, I really appreciated that you took a minute to chat with me and get my mindset on track before my first look with my Dad and James. It really helped to clear my mind and make sure that I was present in those moments, and I'll remember that always. Thank you!

    Amazing Photographer! Perfect Photos!

    I can't recommend Linda enough. She is immensely creative, has a great eye for 'the shot', super talented, professional, dedicated, a pleasure to work with...the list goes on. I can't imagine working with a different photographer on my special day. 10/10 would recommend. Don't even think twice / jsut hire her! Thank you, Linda!

    Linda made magic happen

    From the moment we reached out, Linda was a dream to work with. She was honest, upfront, and clear about pricing and packages, and worked with us to create the right timeline for our wedding day. She was also incredibly warm and kind throughout. We initially chose Linda because we loved her portfolio of more candid, natural, and photojournalistic/documentary-style images. She brought that same vision to our wedding day, and captured incredible moments for us. During the day, she helped make sure everyone was where they needed to be. She felt like a part of our wedding party. She carried around heavy equipment on a very hot Virginia day in September, and it was very appreciated. She got every shot we had asked for in advance and suggested a few on the fly that became some of our favorites. She got us the photos back in a very timely manner, and it was easy to download and share them with friends and family. We would highly suggest working with Linda for any event and would love to work with her again if we have the opportunity. Working with Linda was a highlight of our wedding process.

    Run don't walk to book Awesomesauce

    Working with Awesomesauce was like working with a friend who had known us our entire relationship. She listened to us, she pivoted with us as our priorities evolved, and she helped us include our dog in the photos of our entire wedding party. The set shot photos were wonderful, but the candids she captured were everything. There is a photo of our moms hugging during my emotional father/daughter dance that we will cherish forever. Add in how affordable her services are (especially for the tremendous value), I can't recommend Linda enough.

    Linda is a Rockstar

    Incredibly lucky to have had Linda on our big day! She went out of her way to get us the specific images we wanted and offered her expertise every step of the way. Truly a great experience to have worked with her. She also loves her job so much and it was exciting to see her in her element. By the end of the night, she was more than our photographer, she was a wedding guest too!

    Linda Was Absolutely Phenomenal Start to Finish!

    Linda Spencer & Awesomesauce Photography were our photographers of choice for our rehearsal dinner, wedding & reception all outdoors. From the very first call, I could hear Linda's passion for love, family, & catching the beautiful moments, big and small. Throughout the planning, budgeting, and timeline prep, Linda was thoughtful, extremely responsive, expense conscious, and always had my husband's and my best interests & wishes in mind. On the day of the wedding, she just went above and beyond. She gave us a prep talk before both first looks with my dad then husband, ensuring we got the space we needed & time to reflect on what was important! She checked in on us throughout the day and night, but we never felt like she was in the way. By the end of the night, we felt her as one of the guests and everyone LOVED her and her assistant! Then the pictures came. Holy. Moly. The most beautiful portraits, candids, the lighting, the colors. Linda is phenomenal, and delivered everything in a timely manner. Every time we look at any one of her hundreds of photos she took, we are totally filled with joy of the memory of the moment. I will book her for any and every big event I have. I couldn't recommend Linda and Awesomesauce Photography more!!!

    Linda is fabulous in every way.

    Not only is she is incredibly talented, but her sweet and bubbly personality makes her impossible not to love. She was beyond helpful throughout the planning process. Our wedding day was rainy...but she didn't skip a beat, she did what she needed to do to make our day and pictures beyond perfect. Not only did she take and capture perfectly amazing photos, but she actually gave both my husband and I sweet heartfelt pep talks before some of our big moments. And when she wasn't giving us sweet pep talks, she was making all of us laugh and even out on the dance floor, as she captured all those precious moments. I could go on and on and on. In summary, Linda is incredibly gifted and passionate about her work and I would hire her over and over again.

    Linda is an amazing photographer!

    My wife and I got married in March of this year, and we were thrilled to have Linda at Awesomesauce Photography capture all the special moments of the day. We met Linda at a wedding expo in Richmond (almost 3 years before our wedding date), and booked her right then. I am so happy we did! Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is a fun person to have at your wedding too. My wife and I could not recommend her enough! If you are looking for a photographer, Linda is the best!!

    Quality Service from an Awesome photographer!

    Linda with "Awesomesauce Photography" is talented, fun, professional, punctual, affordable, and -- awesome!

    Linda shot the photos for our wedding this past October and I cannot recommend her enough. She was on the more affordable side of the photographer list, and in this case, you get so much more than what you pay for! Her prompts during our photo session elicited authentic, candid reactions that she captured wonderfully. She came ready with plenty of great pose ideas, she kept us on schedule so as to not waste our time (and money), and she did a great job putting us at ease throughout the whole planning process.

    The photos turned out wonderfully and she made it very easy for us to share view links with friends and family. She delivered the finished product in a timely manner and the quality of the product was well worth the money!

    All in all, Linda provided us with a 5-star service from start to finish. I'd recommend her to anyone who is looking for a quality product, quality service, and a fun experience!

    Awesomesauce was Awesome!

    Linda at Awesomesauce was amazing! We chose the Shake and Bake for our intimate backyard family wedding and after seeing all the pictures it was like Linda was everywhere all at once. She got shots that happened that I didn鈥檛 even know happened during the wedding. She captured all of the most important moments and many of the quieter moments. We could not be happier with the job that she did.

    A joy to work with

    Linda at Awesomesauce photographed us for both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. She did a fantastic job with the pictures, and we couldn't be happier with the results. She's really personable and easy to talk, good at making others feel comfortable so that she can get the best shots. During the wedding, she did a great job of managing all of our various family members, and she got us every shot that she wanted. She's truly gifted as a photographer - not only will you and everyone else at the wedding look amazing, but her photos do a great job of capturing the story and the energy of the day. She was very prompt with the turnaround on our pictures as well. And the price of hiring her is a steal for someone as capable as her.

    The PERFECT Photographer

    Linda was everything I needed during the wedding planning process! I met her through friends who used her for their wedding and I am so grateful to them for that! She is not only a talented photographer, she is an INCREDIBLE person. We were so stressed/nervous/excited and she was there willing to help in any way she could. She had our backs, she went the extra mile, and she wasn't afraid to join in on the fun! I don't know what we would have done without her, honestly, she made our day. Every time we turned around she was there, recording every memory. Looking through our wedding photos brings tears to my eyes, every picture is so special! I can't wait to use her again for all of our future photo needs. Sometimes I just want to send her an email to see how she's doing, and I'm sad now that we won't see her again for a while. Use Linda for everything! You won't regret it! She was the best wedding decision we made, and she made us feel more loved than our actual wedding planner!
