kind words from past clients

"Harper is without a doubt the most organized and natural at posing people!!"

"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!"

"...she made my already beautiful wedding look even more high end!"

 

"Harper was, without a doubt, the absolute best decision we made for our wedding. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable from the moment we met at the engagement session! She was able to capture the two of us in a way that was so natural and authentic to our relationship. When it was over, hubby-to-be said "That was actually fun!" She was readily available whenever I had any questions, and by the wedding day she seemed like a long lost best friend! My family loved working with her and we all just felt so comfortable on the wedding day. When we got our images back, we were STUNNED. Every memory and important detail was intricately captured, and she captured all the emotional moments of the day without missing a beat. Not to mention, she made my already beautiful wedding look even more high end! To this day, my husband still sees her social media posts over my shoulder and says "Harper is hilarious. She's the best". Needless to say, Harper has made a customer for life and we'll be back for all our future photographer needs! Thank you Harper!"

Karina

"Made us feel like models."

 

"We LOVE Harper!!!!! Booking Harper was one of the best decisions I made about our entire wedding experience. We met Harper when she photographed our Save The Date session and instantly felt at ease with her. She returned those photos in less than a day! She captured our Engagement Session a couple of months later and blew us away with her talent. The way she captures the subject and environment is so special and made us feel like models. Harper was at my wedding from start to finish and, once again, blew us away! I was both crying and laughing while looking through our wedding photos for the first time - she truly has a gift when it comes to photography. I particularly love how she is able to use natural lighting in photos, and how every environment looks and feels magical. Besides being such a bad a$$, she is also extremely easy to work with, responds to questions very timely, returns images crazy fast, and is professional in every way. We look forward to booking Harper for all our sessions in the future!"

"Words can't really express how lucky we are to have gotten to work with Harper for both our engagement and wedding photos! First, she does sneak peaks within a day or two of your shoot. This alone is amazing. Our friends and family wanted to see pictures and we were all having too much fun to take any, so it was nice to have something to show them a day or so after the wedding! Second, her timelines are amazing. Even if she is running a little behind (for her own standard) it's still way sooner than any of my friends received their photos! Third, she gets the shots, quickly, efficiently, and even our groomsman (ya know, the grumpy boys who don't like pictures) raved about how easy she is to work with and how they felt like it was quick and painless! She is fairly priced, you get an amazing amount of pictures, and she honestly feels like family at this point! We seriously could not be happier! Thank you Harper!"

"All of our photos (engagements & wedding) came out beyond stunning and I receive so many compliments on how amazing she did."

"I knew for my wedding I wanted to spend the money towards an amazing photographer because the pictures is what I would cherish the most out of spending thousands of dollars on a wedding. I had researched endlessly and had so many options to choose. It became easier when I looked through the preferred vendor list of our wedding venue and saw Harper's name. I went to her website and was stunned! Her work was beyond words, that I knew I had to have her. Unfortunately, our wedding was suppose to happen the day the world shut down for Covid19. However, Harper was able to accommodate my rescheduled wedding date. As the cases were rising we ended up canceling our wedding because we didn't feel comfortable risking it. Plus, my husband and I have been together for 10 years that we no longer wanted to wait. We got married on our own privately on our original wedding date.

In the tough decision to cancel, and potentially receive no refund or be charged a scheduling fee, we decided we want to keep Harper. Since my husband hadn't seen me in my wedding dress, we decided to do a first look 7 months later and she brought my vision to life! It was actually fun picking a totally different place from our venue and getting creative with the wedding styled shoot. We even added a family portrait shoot for our families that attended as a thank you for coming out. The whole idea was brilliant and I couldn't have done it without Harper.

All of our photos (engagements & wedding) came out beyond stunning and I receive so many compliments on how amazing she did. We literally cancelled our wedding after a year and half of planning and yet all we ended up were these gorgeous photos. Let me tell you, we DO NOT regret any of it. Harper is truly magical at what she does. She knows how to make you look so "natural" when you may think you aren't. I honestly plan on using her in the future no matter what she costs. She is totally worth it and deserves every penny!

This review doesn't even come close to explaining her work. You seriously won't regret working with her, I promise!"

"...made us feel so confident in front of the camera..."

 

"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!"

Alyssa

"...Harper was ever-present yet never distracting..."

 

"While helping to plan my daughter's wedding, I was well aware one of the hardest decisions was going to be hiring a wedding photographer. It's a big decision for any bride, but even more so when the bride herself is a wedding photographer! However, the minute she showed me Harper's portfolio I knew Harper HAD to be it. Her light, romantic, ethereal style is simply perfect!

As a mother, the moment I was most looking forward to during the wedding day was when I would get to spend a few quiet moments alone with my daughter, getting her dressed and ready for her big day. Harper expertly yet unobtrusively captured the realness and rawness of the emotions during those moments. Those pictures still make me cry every time I see them. In fact, that's how the whole day went; Harper was ever-present yet never distracting, and the images she took are exquisite. They bring back with perfect clarity the joy, the laughter, and the sacredness of each moment.

I so highly recommend Harper Blankenship Photography. She is a master of her craft."

"...quick to respond to messages and was always professional and on top of things."

 

"We are so excited to be working with Harper for our wedding! While on fb one day her page came up on my news feed. I loved what I saw and immediately went to her website to look at packages. I was floored to see how reasonable she is and how amazing her work is! She is exactly the style of photographer I love and had been wanting. She was quick to respond to messages and was always professional and on top of things. When we met her for our save the date/engagement session she was super friendly and professional. She made us feel super comfortable and her turn around time on our pictures was faster than any other photographer I have used. We are so pleased with our pictures and I look forward to my bridal session and ultimately our big day! Thank you again for such a wonderful experience!"

Jenna

"...you won't be disappointed!"

"We LOVED Harper SO much!!! Harper is so amazing at what she does! She captures every moment so perfectly! Her pictures are light and airy and high quality! I would highly recommend her for your wedding, engagement, or family photos! She's the best at what she does, and you won't be disappointed!"

"Harper is funny, understanding and so easy to work with."

 

"Harper Blankenship is a phenomenal wedding and engagement photographer! We got married June 1st 2020 at Stonehouse Villa. I knew I wanted Harper as our photographer because of her elegant romantic style that show cases all the beautiful details of a wedding day. Harper is funny, understanding and so easy to work with. We got our photos very quickly after the wedding. Thank you Harper for the magical moments you captured for us! We will cherish the photos forever. <3"

"...so sweet and kind to work with..."

 

"This past Friday (4/19/19) Harper photographed my wedding and did a beautiful job! The pictures are jaw dropping! Harper was so sweet and kind to work with and we received a sneak peak of our photos the night of our wedding! I highly, highly recommend her to anyone in the Austin/San Antonio area that is looking for a wedding photographer!"

Victoria

"...before you've noticed she's taken the most beautiful pictures without taking up all of your time."

 

"Harper was great to work with, she makes photography look and seem so easy breezy that you don’t think she has even taken the shot but before you’ve noticed she’s taken the most beautiful pictures without taking up all of your time. She knows exactly what she’s doing and she directs you to pose for pictures in such a simple fashion that is brief and nobody in the wedding party has a chance to get bored.


Ps. My sneak peak photos have had soooooo many compliments. She really does take the best shots!"

Karla

"...does an incredible job of helping you feel comfortable..."

 

"Harper is amazing! She did our engagement photo shoot and our wedding. We displayed our engagement photos around our wedding venue and everyone loved them so much that they took the frames home (that was not our intention ha ha). Harper is very creative and does an incredible job of helping you feel comfortable so that she can capture the best shots. We definitely won’t hesitate to reach out to her for future events."

Azeneth

"We could not be happier!!!"

 

"Harper was amazing! I would highly recommend her! Unfortunately we could not control the weather on our big day and it was freezing! Her dedication and passion to capture amazing photos with such a positive attitude on a day like that was such an amazing experience! Thank you, Harper! Our photos came out amazingly beautiful and we could not be happier!!!"

Megan

"Great with communication and really captured the photos that I wanted."

 

"Harper did my wedding back in November 2016. She did a fantastic job really capturing our special day even with all the craziness going on. She showed up right when she specified that she would and stayed until we left. She was great with communication and really captured the photos that I wanted. I couldn't be more happy and I definitely suggest using her. I know I will as soon as I have a reason to."

Amber

"From engagement photos to the wedding day she was great."

 

"Took me awhile to finally post from an October 2019 event. I found her through a recommendation on an ad on Facebook. Looking through her portfolio, her pictures made everything look natural and bright. She was super easy to work with- personable and flexible. From engagement photos to the wedding day was great. She and Karina did a great job and being patient with the chaos at capturing details, and my favorite moments that want me to relive the day. You won't regret having her as your photographer for your special event."

Melanie

"Gave wonderful direction for natural looking photos..."

 

"I can not praise Harper enough! She did such an incredible job with our engagement AND wedding photos!

Brad

"...nothing short of impressed..."

 

"Harper did our engagement session as well as our wedding photos and was nothing short of impressed with the photos we got back. She was very easy to work with and the second shooter that helped was amazing as well (I feel terrible because I forgot her name )! Looking forward to booking mini sessions when she announces the next set. If you are still debating on a photographer, book Harper... you won’t regret it!"

"...she was very efficient and dealt with our big wedding party with ease."

 

"Harper was so great to work with! She did our engagement and wedding photos. She met with me before the wedding to go over the timeline, gave me advice and made everything so easy. We had a big wedding and the whole time I felt crunched for time but she was very efficient and dealt with our big wedding party (and the heat) with ease. When she took photos of me and my husband it was nice to see how excited she got about certain shots and would show us on her camera and made it so much fun. She genuinely seems to love what she does. We got the pictures back very quickly. So happy we chose her for our photos to cherish forever!"

Sequoia

"So fun to work with!"

Everyone is in love with our pictures and we have already gotten sooo many compliments!!"

"...I would recommend her to anyone..."

 

"After reviewing several photographers’ portfolios online, we really fell in love with Harper’s style. She was great to work with from the very first phone call, and I am very happy that we chose her as our wedding photographer.

I would definitely enjoy working with Harper again, and I would recommend her to anyone in need of professional photography services."

"Handled things with so much grace."

Darcie

"I will indefinitely recommend her to everyone..."

 

"I can not even begin to express how satisfied I am with Harper's work! She is truly gifted. She did my wedding pictures for me; I was running late and she was so patient with me. I am someone who hates pictures of myself, I absolutely hate it! But I had to suck it up for my big day and she did such an amazing job!!! I will indefinitely recommend her to everyone, I promise you will not be disappointed! Thank you Harper a ton! Plus a quick turn around with my digital copies."
