Favorite Moments of 2011

2011 is officially over and I’m gearing up and getting excited about 2012. Last year, I pulled together a few of my favorite moments/images of 2010 and I wanted to do that again for 2011. I really had a hard time picking this year because it’s truly been a fantastic year for Whitmeyer Photography. I reunited with a lot of old friends and celebrated with them this year. I’ve been calling 2011 the “year of the friends’ weddings” because a large number of my clients this year were actually friends. This is one of the reasons that I LOVE my job. I get to celebrate the important stuff with great people. I am constantly surrounded by love and happiness and I couldn’t possibly feel more blessed.

From Sarah and Tommy’s Raleigh wedding last March

Some of the best homemade details I’ve ever seen (above) by Kelly Haynes who was married April 2 of last year and printed tons of beautiful details for her Dairy Barn wedding.

The photos above and below both won awards from the WPJA this past year. The WPJA is international and contests are pretty competitive so I’m always thrilled when my images place. So far, I’ve had 7 images place over my 5 years as a member.

The gorgeous wedding of Erin and Joe at the NC State Club in Raleigh, NC

From the Claxton Farms wedding of Leah and Brian

Gorgeous wedding of Haley and Zach at Raffaldini Vineyards on May 28 of 2011

The following are from the incredibly beautiful wedding of Allison and Jeremy at the Biltmore Estate:

Love these sweet moments between family!

This year, I gave couples a collection of polaroids at the end of the wedding day of different moments though out the day. This was something that just came out of my love of polaroids and desire to have something to give couples instantly. I plan on continuing this through 2012!

We had some really hot (above) and really wet (below) days this year. Crazy enough, these images were both from the same wedding!

This year, we learned how to “duggy” 🙂

This September at the Biltmore Estate Winery (above)! I love when these sunflowers are in bloom!!

This fall saw the first run of Whitmeyer Photography’s new Photobooth, POSERS! More on the blog to come soon about the photobooth, but I’m really excited about this new endeavor!

From friends, John and Caroline’s Engagement session (above) and Wedding day (below).

Below, Caroline (studying to be a doctor) takes her pulse before the ceremony!!

We ended a fantastic year with the Biltmore wedding of Phillip and Laura (below) on Dec. 19

What a great year 2011 was, looking forward to being a part of more love-filled moments in 2012!
