I am really, really excited about this engagement shoot. Ginny + Wes are our perfect couple...she's an architect, he's a graphic designer, they're both musicians who love whiskey and good food. How did we only just meet them three weeks ago?! These two have so much fun together, constantly making one another laugh. Brian and I are looking forward to getting to know Ginny + Wes these next few months before their 9.29.12 wedding, and for many years after!

Ginny + Wes' first date was at the C+O...which is also where Wes took Ginny the night he proposed!

Brian and I adore this couple; fellow foodies, Julie + Kevin made us feel as if we were part of their crowd the entire day.  They were married at Beth Ahabah in Richmond, Virginia on 4.28.2012, and celebrated at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts afterwards. The rain didn't hold us back; we were able to slip in and out of the VMFA for their first look and portraits between showers and with the aid of the blue and white museum umbrellas. The VMFA is one of their favorite places in Richmond, and we loved that we were able to photograph them in both its exterior and interior spaces. Julie and Kevin have a quiet, calm way together; a demeanor and affection that comes from sharing a life for many years. The museum was the perfect setting to capture the character of their relationship and wedding day.

Julie and Kevin, we have really enjoyed getting to know you these last ten months. We hope that, despite the distance between Charlottesville and New York City, you will keep in touch. We will share a meal with you two any time! xoxo.


muli + marcus | married!


Muli and Marcus were married yesterday on a beautiful farm in Louisa! These two braved the elements for a fun first look and portraits around the property. We can't wait to share the rest of the images of this lovely couple and their wedding day!

Congratulations, you two! Brian and I were so pleased to be part of your day. Have fun in California!

Since leaving the world of architecture and entering self-employment 14 months ago, I have been continually amazed at the open and accepting community of photographers in Charlottesville. I have made some great friends this year, professional artists who have invited me to work alongside them. Today I am sharing a few of my images from some of those weddings, all experiences for which I am so grateful.

Many thanks to Sarah, Eric, and Anne + Bill!!!

looking back on 2011

Food, Life, Retail, Spaceandrea3 Comments

The last was my first full year devoting 100% of my working time to Andrea Hubbell Photography. Looking back on the last 12 months I can't help but feel proud, humbled, and most of all, so very appreciative. For having the opportunity to chase this big, BIG dream. For all of the people who have made this my reality. For all of you..the family, friends, clients, and colleagues who have put your trust in me. And for Brian, without whom none of this would be possible. 

2010 was for making changes and a big, big leap. 2011 for chasing dreams and surviving. 2012 will be for seizing the reins, being proactive, taking chances...challenging myself to be and do better, every single day.

I wish you all a happy, healthy, inspiring 2012!

[here are some of my favorites from 2011...thank you, each one of you, for an amazing year!]


caitlin + kevin | married 10.08.2011

Caitlin + Kevin were married in Crozet, in front of the Blue Ridge Mountains, on October 8th. These two and their friends were completely trusting and enthusiastic about all of our suggestions. They followed their sweet nuptials with a party at the X Lounge, but not until Brian and I took them on a detour to a downtown parking garage. Let me just say...I love a couple that is excited when we throw out the suggestion "how about bridal party portraits on top of the garage?"!!! With backgrounds similar to our own (both graduated with degrees in architecture) we knew that the commanding lines and warm concrete would be right up their alley. :)

When planning their wedding, Caitlin + Kevin simply wanted to 'get married in a field' and 'rent out a bar with all of our closest friends and family'. They succeeded, and the resulting laid-back nuptials were so much fun to be part of. Big Hokie fans, the bride and groom even went so far as to have the game playing during their X-Lounge party. The Hokies must have gotten the memo, because they were kind enough to win their game against the University of Miami. The images of the final minutes of the game are some of my favorites. 

Caitlin + Kevin...thank you for inviting us to be part of your day and for trusting our ideas. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, and hope that our designer paths cross again one day soon.  xoxo.

Mark + Adrienne were married in Bethesda, Maryland three weeks ago today. And what a lovely wedding it was! We started the afternoon in Kentlands, where the reception would begin hours later. M+A indulged Brian and I with time for portraits before their ceremony, giving us the opportunity to wander around the picturesque community. With picket fences, quaint streets and the sweetest green house we had plenty of visual candy to inspire us! 

I am so excited to share these images with you all, and especially with Mark + Adrienne. Enjoy, and happy weekend!

Mark + Adrienne, you asked us to join you before we'd ever had the opportunity to photograph a wedding. You put complete and total faith in us, and for that we will be forever touched and grateful. Thank you for asking us to be part of your day, it was truly a pleasure.
