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.

Mr. & Mrs. Roberts, the unabridged version.

Often times I  worry that I post too many photos… or that I’m too wordy. Actually, that’s a lie. I don’t worry too much about it, because I’m just that kind of person.  I’m wordy and I’m proud of it.  So I hope you enjoy this look at Bryan’s and Makalya’s wedding day.

I’ve already posted a sneak preview of the wedding, but felt their beautiful day was worthy of more. I don’t photograph a lot of weddings here in Mountain Home, but always love it when the chance is presented. Getting to work with people I know is special.

This wedding was one where I really felt as if I’d been given a seat of honor where I could be part of their most intimate lives. I was witness to their love, their faith and their happiness. …. oh, and the guy’s cool socks.

I cannot wait to show Bryan, Makayla and their families the entire collection of photos.

Enjoy!  BTW, the kids in this wedding … may have stolen the show.  They were so adorable.

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!
