Davy Whitener is a fine art film photographer specializing in destination weddings. His method combines an editorial and classic approach with a candid and artistic eye. A perfect combination for capturing each unique wedding day. His relational personality embellishes his technical skills enabling families and guests to relax and enjoy their experience. This “marriage” of talents turns sacred moments into beautiful and timeless photographs.

Davy has true passion for his craft. He started working with a manual film camera in 1996. Initially, he taught himself by documenting his settings with pen and pad. He photographed his first wedding in 2002. After college and an apprenticeship, he has worked full time since 2005.

Davy resides in Atlanta with his wife Lydia and their children Prudence, James, Milly, and Gideon. He is an adventurer and lover of the great outdoors. When he doesn’t have a camera in his hand, you can find him fly fishing, hunting seasonal game, or spending time with his family.

“I’m truly blessed to do what I love. My beautiful bride has always supported me. I’m honored to be surrounded by, and friends with, some of the best vendors and editors in the wedding world. I’m humbled to see God work through me, since I am His vessel. I do my best and pray that God’s Kingdom will be glorified.” -Davy
