My name is Derek Blanchard and I am a wedding and portrait photographer living in the Topeka, KS area. I grew up on a farm and I know what hard work is. I have been working hard these past few years growing my knowledge in what I love to do and that is take amazing images. My love for photography started years ago with film cameras and still lives strong within me. I love capturing that amazing moment between family and loved ones that shows their true love for one another. 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.
