North Georgia Event Venue // Whimsy Hill Farm
A few months ago, I made a connection with Jeana Holbert, the owner of Whimsy Hill Farm, one of the newest north Georgia event venues. It’s around 8 acres of rolling hills, open pastures, woods, barns, and mountain views. And now it’s also home to Jeana’s family, which – aside from people – includes cows, horses, dogs, cats, chickens, guinea fowl, and so many goats! Her goal is to rent this space out to whomever needs one. These events include birthday parties, Scouts get-togethers, family reunions, and, of course, weddings, so she had me come out for some property photography!
Whimsy Hill Farm Event Venue Feature
I approached this shoot the same way I approach photographing people, honestly. I came in wanting to show off what makes this space lovely. And I asked: how is it unique, how do I show its personality? What would draw someone to this space over another?
With all of my couples, I chat with them about what they look for in a wedding venue and why they end up choosing the one they go with. I also ask what other wedding venues they looked at, really wanting to understand. So I brought all of those conversations with me to photograph this property. Of course I wanted to keep in mind not just couples looking for a wedding venue in North Georgia. These photos are also for anyone looking for an event venue for a party or any kind of gathering, really. You want to look for versatility, for beautiful canvases that are flexible enough to put some of your personality and customization on, and for logistical considerations like parking and where to put the heckin’ port-o-potties.
I focused on aspects that made this property unique and interesting, exploring both high up and low down, and ranging all over the space. I’ve now been 4-5 times and it’s such a delight every time. Keep an eye on the blog to see how differently it’s been decorated multiple times so far!
See some of my work at Whimsy Hill Farm!
