Professional Photographer Annual Membership Policy

Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities (Weymouth) is a beautiful setting for professional photographers. Although Weymouth is open to the public at no charge, it is private property owned by the Friends of Weymouth, Inc. Considering material and labor, maintenance of our historic buildings and the beautifully manicured grounds is costly. 


All professional photographers who wish to use Weymouth property must register with Weymouth as a Photographer Member. We are updating our professional photographer’s contract. Please call the office for details.

Weekend Reservations

Weymouth  is a wedding venue site. Saturday/Sunday photo reservations will not be permitted until 3 weeks from desired date. We do our best to accommodate rain dates.

Photographer’s Membership

An annual Photographer’s Membership is $300.00. This includes up to six pre-scheduled 3-hour sessions on the grounds. One indoor session may be scheduled – please call the office in advance. 

If a photographer chooses not to become a member, a fee is required for each session. The outdoor fee is $75 for 2 hours. Reservations are required and payment in full is due at time of reservation. Indoor reservation fees for Saturday or Sunday are $180 for a 2-hour session and based on availability of staff. When you reserve your weekend date please bring the confirmation email with you as the Weymouth Center is not gated and the grounds are open to the public.

During paid rentals or Weymouth events, outside photographers may not use the grounds until the event is over.


This policy and membership provides a level of order for Weymouth Professional Photographer Members. A professional photographer is defined as someone providing photographic service for any kind of fee, whether cash or in-kind. Additionally, all professional photographers who wish to use Weymouth Center are required to have liability insurance policy or rider which lists Friends of Weymouth, Inc. P.O. Box 939, 555 E. Connecticut Ave., Southern Pines, NC 28388, as “Additional Insured” for $1M. This document must be presented to the front office prior to the reservation.

Thank you for your cooperation and support. Please enjoy Weymouth with your clients responsibly.
