  O u r  J o b

Having photographed hundreds of weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, family portraits, executive headshots and special events gives me a clarity and perspective of what is important to our clients. Every event is special. We take care to capture the many details that plays an important part in every event. But what distinguishes our work is our unassuming manner, our inconspicuous methods, and our patient approach.

Creating wonderful, memorable images of these significant events is not about directing people and telling them what to do, its people being themselves, having a great time and not being bothered. Let us photograph your next event and experience the best in personal photographic service. Remember Blanken Photography for timeless images that capture your heart as well as your day.
