Austin Wedding Photographer || About Harper


Hi, I'm Harper, and that's my husband and our two kiddos. We live in New Braunfels, Texas in a cute duplex, and I specialize in wedding photography full-time and mostly work in the central Texas area. I do travel for out-of-town weddings as long as I can get there by car; I LOVE road trips!

I'm most drawn to elegant weddings and styles, with lots of florals and vibrant colors. I love big open spaces, pretty textures, and bright clean light! My photos are most often filled with backgrounds that have lots of textures and colors, but I occasionally like clean and simple whenever something calls for it. I'm somewhat of a minimalist when it comes to the gear that I use, and mostly stick to natural light when I can and personally love the freedom and organic photography style of working with what I have instead of bringing in light-stands and extra gadgets. My portrait style is about a 50/50 mix of posed and candid, and I edit with timeless film-based colors and true-to-life natural skin tones. 

Think I might be a good fit for your wedding? I'd love to be there! Submit a contact form here and see if I'm available for your date. 

I'm the sole owner and lead photographer of my business, Harper Blankenship Photography, but have a rotation of photographer friends that I regularly sub-contract and trust to second shoot with me. I've been in business since late 2014, and have photographed over 100 Texas weddings! So far, my work has been featured on The Knot, Brides of Houston, The Bump, Voyage Dallas, and The Vow Texas Weddings, and I'm a preferred vendor at Stonehouse Villa, Texas Old Town and The Wildflower Barn.

"We just had our engagement session with Harper yesterday and it was so much fun! Not only is her personality so cute, which made the whole thing so easy and comfortable for us, but she’s also very talented. You can see she genuinely enjoys doing what she does and it made us feel so confident in front of the camera when she’d get excited about certain shots. We already received our photos, which are absolutely beautiful I must say, and it’s gonna be nearly impossible to narrow down my favorites. Thank you Harper!"


"Harper was the photographer at my sister’s wedding. Being one of the bridesmaids and also the wedding coordinator, I had a lot of interaction with Harper. Let me tell you - Harper is top notch!! She is sweet, professional, very easy to work with, has a great eye for which shots will look good and she is fast! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! And the absolute best part - the bride (my sister) was thrilled with the end result photos!!!"


"This review is long over due! Harper was my wedding photographer almost 6 months ago and she exceeded all of my expectations. Unfortunately, we were unable to meet with her before the big day, but you would never have known because she made everyone (especially my husband and I) feel so comfortable. She somehow got all of those special little shots that I asked for and so many more! I have been in quite a few weddings as a bridesmaid, and have seen first hand how photographers conduct the group and couple. That being said, Harper is without a doubt the most organized and natural at posing people!! It was very important to me that my photos be pieces of art rather than just a bunch of posed shots and that is exactly what she delivered (and at a very reasonable price!) I can’t say enough great things about her work!"


"Harper is AMAZING!!! Not only are her photos incredible, beautiful and creative - she's also such a delight to work with! she's professional, efficient, sweet, on-schedule and overall incredible to work with! I highly recommend her for any photography need you have."
