Capturing Life's Real Moments, One Click at a Time.

Derek Blanchard
Wedding Photographer based in Kansas City, MO USA

Hello! I'm a professional photographer based in the heart of Kansas City, MO. I have dedicated my career to capturing the magical moments of one of life's most beautiful days - weddings. With a keen eye for detail, an artistic touch, and a passion for capturing authentic emotions, I strive to make your special day a visual story that can be cherished forever. I believe in capturing love in its purest form, making each photograph a unique piece of art that reflects your love story. I consider it a privilege to be a part of your special day and to be the one to preserve your precious memories. I can't wait to meet you and help make your wedding day as magical as your love story. My first big start in photography was capturing weddings. From my first wedding, I fell in love with the excitement, the emotions, the venues, and the decor. For me, the most important part is the vows that two people make to each other on their wedding day. They vow to join together as one and spend the rest of their lives together. I am truly lucky to be able to capture images of a couple on their amazing and unforgettable wedding day.

Derek did an outstanding job on our engagement photos along with our wedding photos. These are photographs I will cherish forever. I will have more photos in the future photographed by him again! I highly recommend him. :)

Photos worth a thousand raves! You can’t put a price on this amazing photographer! I was blessed every step of the way with his creative poses and captured moments of real love between my husband and I. We didn’t just gain a wedding photographer. We gained a photographer that we will keep going back to every life event we want beautifully captured as he did our wedding. He added personal touches, took the time to get to know us and what was important to us and captured every tear jerking moment on our wedding day! If you want quality photos that you’ll find yourself being in love with even months after, go with Derek.
