Learn photography with me

Hey there friend! I am so excited you decided to stop by today. Meredith Hodge Photography is a family, and maternity photographer and educator. In addition, we offer wedding photography services in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. We serve the greater Hampton Roads Area to include Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, all the way out to Virginia Beach.

I spent years teaching myself how to use my camera.  As a self taught photographer with possibly thousands of hours of youtube under my belt, I knew there had to be a better way. You see, I am not only just a creative.  I have to know the how's and the why's things work. Once it all clicked for me, I knew I wanted to make it easier for other people out there.  I took all of the information I learned, took out the fluff, and created my beginners photography course.  

I am so fortunate to have advance training and mentoring by some of the top names in the industry. With my training and the high standards I set for myself, I take pride in providing the absolute best service to my clients…YOU! I will work to make sure you understand the components of photography, as well as your individual camera.
