AUSTIN - SAN ANTONIO - AND STATEWIDE
A FRIEND TO DOCUMENT YOUR JOYFUL LOVE STORY with VIBRANCE, AUTHENTICITY and TIMELESSNESS
Harper Blankenship is a wedding, elopement, and portrait photographer located in New Braunfels, Texas, with a focus in natural light fine art portraiture. If you're looking for a photographer who can capture not only every detail of your wedding day, but also your true personalities by guiding you through natural, flattering posing and movement, you've come to the right place!
I'm a 28 year old ukulele playing, coffee addicted, humor-loving goof nugget with a passion for making new friends while I work. My natural tendency to want to connect with everyone in some way, talk about anything, and make people laugh helps me capture my clients at their most authentic and happy, and my ADHD brain/constantly racing thoughts helps me think of tons of posing and photos ideas super quickly and efficiently.
I literally couldn't be better suited for the job!
what it's like to work with me
I care a whole lot about helping to bring out all of your personality in your photos, and getting as wide of a variety of photos as I possibly can to showcase every bit of your relationship and style. From the tiny details, to the romantic posed portraits and the unposed in-betweens, to the cute and/or hilarious candids, I aim to get a balanced mix of it all.
On the wedding day, I have my timeline in hand and help to keep things running on time. I'm someone to keep the energy light, and the bridal party entertained, and when it's portrait time I squeeze a lot of portraits out of the time I'm given and then let you enjoy your day while I sink into the shadows to document it all unobtrusively.
Most clients reserve their date with me 6-14 months in advance, and I particularly recommended locking in your date with all of your favorite vendors well in advance if your wedding date is during the high seasons of spring and fall (especially for Saturdays).
A signed contract and $1,000 flat deposit (all taken care of online) is all that is needed to save your date, and I'm an email/video chat/coffee date away during the entire planning process if you ever need someone to chat about wedding planning with. I can help you plan the perfect wedding day timeline to insure we have all of the time that we need to get all of your most important photos, and with over 120 weddings in experience, I've seen exactly what works and what things might lead to hiccups in your schedule.
All weddings and photoshoots include at-least 70 photos per every hour of shooting, or 560+ for a typical 8 hour wedding day, and all final images (everything but the bloopers) are carefully edited and delivered in an online gallery that you are free to download/share/print as you wish.
