HARPER BLANKENSHIP

MY APPROACH

A personalized blend of

beautifully posed & documentary photography.

As someone like you who has found my soulmate, and has accumulated photos of the two of us over the years that are our absolute favorites, what I've learned is that the content of what was captured in the image matters way more to me than the perfect pose, lighting, editing, colors, or composition. What makes a photo a favorite is that is shows us being us, loving each other through our flaws and imperfections and seeing the beauty in each other.

 

As a Fine Art Photographer, my job is to document your wedding in a way that is both meaningful and aesthetic.

 

My style involves:

  • Keeping my eye on all of the little moments, and pulling some strings whenever needed to help things happen in photogenic ways.

  • Taking the time to direct you intentionally in ways that I know will slowly draw out your personalities, and help me to capture you both in candids and posed portraits that are natural and flattering.

 

Some of the best images are the completely un-posed, gummy smile, real moments, but I also understand that at times we all just want someone to take control and tell us what to do to get great photos of us where we feel confident, which is why I blend a variety of techniques and make sure you're getting a little of everything.

My mission is to create an artful, emotive collection of images filled with magazine-worthy portraits, beautifully captured details, and candid moments that are destined to become your own 

absolute favorites.

GET TO KNOW ME

66800749_10219400421822578_577697604100423680_n.jpeg

I'm a wife, mom of 2, and full-time photographer documenting weddings, couples, and families all over Texas since 2014

I'm a 30 something year old with a love for the quiet life, living in New Braunfels, TX with my husband, our two kiddos, a dog, two cats, and a hamster that my daughter insists is my grandchild. My husband and I are generally homebodies, we both love to be cozy in our familiar settings enjoying our quiet time together. On weekends you might find us playing a game of darts in the garage with a couple of White Claws, relentlessly teasing each other after every turn.

My goals in life are always peace and balance. I love my family and the simple things; having a hot cup of coffee in the morning while I plan my day and listen to music, or watching my kids play at the park.

"It could be the AMAZING photos she takes (obviously), her light, colorful and happy photography style (romantic- check, majestic- check) or her goofy and warm personality (patiently waiting for her Netflix standup special). Whatever caught your eye; you WILL NOT be disappointed. Harper was/is the best decision I made for my wedding."
