Why the long break?

Been a while since I’ve posted here. Just thought I would give a bit of an explanation. First of all, this fall was the busiest season to date for Whitmeyer Photography in 11 years (yay!), but with that comes loads and loads of editing. I made a difficult decision to not blog my fall weddings this year so that I could get client photos back to them sooner. With a little help, I was able to get everyone’s photos back to them by the holidays! But I didn’t get to blog all those weddings, which troubled me since I’ve blogged every wedding I’ve shot since 2009.

So for 2017, I will be doing things a bit differently with the blog. First of all, I will be posting teasers on my facebook page for ALL clients. I will not be blogging EVERY wedding anymore, but will blog from time to time when I’m inspired to do so (which I imagine will still be rather frequently).

Also new for 2017 is a brand new website! Check it out! I’m also promising faster turn around times this year! Lots of great changes in the works! If you or someone you know is recently engaged and looking for a photographer, please send them my way!

And for the next month, I will be blogging fall 2016 weddings that never made it here! Enjoy

 

 

Kendall and Adams in Chapel Hill

Today I share with you the wedding of my amazing friend Kendall to an equally amazing man, Adams. I’ve known and admired Kendall for years (since our days at UNC). She has a contagious energy about her that makes you just want to be around her all the time. It was such a joy to go back to Chapel Hill to Rock Quarry Farms to celebrate with Kendall, Adams, and their friends and family. Here are some highlights from this special day:

The Big Fat Gap Band 

Rachel and Stu at Nantahala Village

So excited to share this sweet wedding with you today! Rachel and Stu were married in Bryson City, NC at the Nantahala Village on Aug. 6 amongst friends and family. Rachel was an absolute STUNNER of a bride and these two were just glowing in love and happiness!! Second photographer, Regina Holder and I had so much fun celebrating with these two adorable lovebirds!

Cory and Ryane’s Courthouse Wedding

Sept 29, I made my way to the courthouse with second photographer, Carrie Turner to celebrate with Cory and Ryane and their closest friends/family. I absolutely love these small, intimate weddings full of so much love. After the short ceremony in Pack Square Park, we walked downtown, taking photos along the way. We ended our walk at Zambras where we said goodbye and the celebration continued with dinner. Here are some of my favorites from the day:

Cheers to Cory and Ryane! Thanks so much for letting Carrie and I document this special day!

Lindsay and Mike in Raleigh, NC

Lindsay is a professional ballerina and was just the most graceful and beautiful bride! I’ve never had so much photographing the dancing at the reception as this night! There were lifts and spins all over the place!

Here are some highlights from this gorgeous wedding day!
