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.

I LOVE our wedding pictures! They turned out fantastic. We didnt have a whole lot of money to spend so our venue wasn't extravagant or anything and I worried our pictures would reflect that. But Derek took FULL advantage of what he had to work with and made our pictures beautiful regardless. I couldnt have been more happy with them.Sent on 04/29/2015

Derek from Real Life Photography was more than exceptional when it came to his service and the final product. Pictures that relive a moment can't even begin to express my gratitude for a job well done. I highly recommend Derek for your next big event.Sent on 05/05/2015
