Changed and reorganized.

A couple weeks back I wrote about change that was coming to Blair Photography. Well, it is here.

I started Blair Photography almost 18 years ago and have worked hard to satisfy hundreds and hundreds of clients. Along the way I have met so many people who started as a client and remained a friend. I’ve been blessed beyond measure.

I’ve recently been looking at the business I have built, compared to the current trend in the photography industry and realized it’s time for me to change… and this will be best for my clients and myself.

Moving forward I will only accept a limited number of weddings and portrait sessions. I have two wedding packages and one portrait package. That’s it. No discounts. No specials. If you want to book my services, my skill and my dedication, give me a call. I LOVE working for clients who get it. Who get that what I do is a mixture of art and science. … Seeing the light and feeling the moment. Oh, and don’t worry. I’m not leaving the photography world. I’m just reevaluating my value and my desire to do things in a manner that put me with clients who really have the same goals I have. I want to make amazing photographs that tell the story of their lives, one frame at a time.

And don’t worry. All currently booked sessions and weddings will go on just as contracted. If you have a Gift Certificate, perfect. Don’t forget to use them, as they expire 12-31-19.

Change is coming to Blair Photography

Change is a good thing… and change is coming to my pricing structure. Due to changes in my personal life, I will be changing how many photography assignments I accept each year. With that being said, as of February 18, 2019 new prices will be put in place. At that time, previous price lists will be null and void.

So if you have been looking at booking me for your wedding or portrait session, now is the time to go ahead and get it taken care of. Give me a call at 870-404-9241 and we can get you on the calendar.

Also, I will be discontinuing the phone number 870-425-7671 and you will only be able to contact my phone by using the 870-404-9241 number.

Melissa & Luke… engaged in Conway

I’ve known Melissa for a big part of her life, growing up here in Mountain Home, so when I got the call, asking about being her wedding photographer, I was happy, to say the least.  She is one of those people who makes others around her happy.  She’s genuinely happy and loves to spread that happiness.  Meeting Luke for the first time when I arrived to do their engagement photos, I could tell that they were a good match for one another.  So since I’ve just restarted the blog, I wanted to share some of their photos… especially for those who haven’t followed my Facebook page.

The day started out in a pretty classic, “grandma will like these pictures”, kind of way and then it turned.  Not a bad turn, but rather an incredibly fun turn. So enjoy the madness that was their engagement photos.

Allie & Corey… not sure I’m ready for this.

As a photographer, planning an outdoor photo session, I always know I’m at the mercy of the weather… and often, the weather seems to work against me. Allie and I had already rescheduled a couple of different times due to rain and this day was really one we weren’t sure about, but the weatherman said Jonesboro was in the clear. I gathered my equipment and started my two and a half hour drive to meet them for their engagement photos on a beautiful and sunny afternoon.  By the time I made it to Jonesboro, I couldn’t see to drive. I had to pull over and wait it out. Buckets. Maybe more than buckets.  There were barrels of rain falling. Some streets were flooding and enough lightning that it was honestly a bit scary at times. Finally I made it to downtown Jonesboro where we were going to meet up and it was still raining, so we all sat in our vehicles and waited.  And waited.  And then when we were tired of waiting, we waited some more. To be truthful, I was feeling a bit discouraged.

Then the rain stopped and we discussed our options. Things were soaked and standing water was abundant, so posing was going to be a bit of a challenge, as using the grassy areas was ruled out.  We got a game plan and headed out.  This is where my day turned around and things got AWESOME!

I’ve photographed, literally hundreds of couples, but none quite like this couple. To say they have a sense of humor is possibly the biggest understatement I could make. These two are… and I say this with all the love I can possibly muster… nothing less than the most loveable and funny dorks you’ll ever meet. Somehow in the midst of their having fun, we managed to get some seriously badass engagement photos that show their personalities to perfection.

My face hurt for the entire drive home, because I couldn’t stop smiling. Needless to say, I am so ready for their wedding in Memphis, later this month. I’m already anticipating how amazing their photos will be… and how much I’ll be smiling.

Included in this gallery are some that I probably shouldn’t show off, but I am going to anyway. I love couples who are not afraid to truly be themselves and there are a couple of the photos I’m sharing that are simply a result of us laughing and them seeing how weird things could get. Enjoy!
