Hi! I’m Brianna Blank, owner of Blank-Slate Photo & Video and I… I believe that love is love and that we should celebrate everyone! Everyone was created equally and I am all for photographing and filming couples of every gender, race, orientation, and religious background! My target couples are the ones who aren’t afraid to get a little wild and throw caution to the wind. They are the ones who truly know how to roll with the punches and still have a huge smile on their faces. They are hilarious, compassionate, adventurous, and down for a fun time!
I’m trying to change the wedding game by helping my couples realize that their wedding, at the core, is about them. That seems like such a silly statement, but it is so easy to get swept up into everyone else’s expectations for how their wedding should be done. Is your dream wedding is having a reception at Denny’s to get their grand slam pancakes after the ceremony? Go for it! Is your dream wedding is throwing the biggest Great Gatsby themed party with hundreds of family and friends? That’s amazing too! Every couple shouldn’t be afraid to truly go for what makes them happy and stress free!
No matter what the nature of a photo or film shoot is, I always strive to help my clients feel as comfortable and natural as possible. Nothing is posed, nothing is fake. I strive to bring out the best in every client and couple and uncover the little quirks that make everyone so unique. As my friends like to say, I am more than a photographer or videographer. I’ll step in to help plan, bring you water or food, or help put on a bride’s dress!
With regards to photo services, I don’t just cover engagement sessions or weddings! I also offer trash the dress or anniversary photo sessions. I also do photo restoration!
For video services, two unique services I offer are “growing up” slideshow videos for couples to have at engagement parties or during their wedding reception. I also offer a “words of wisdom” video to add on to wedding coverage. The day of your wedding, I film family and friends offering advice to the couple for them to watch in the future. For the couples who want to really showcase their images in a unique way, I love doing canvas mounts and wraps! Metal prints are also so much fun and make for a stunning piece to showcase your wedding day.
I always want to deliver the highest quality session and product for all of my couples. Over time, the style and taste for wedding photography and videography has changed from more formal and clean-cut imagery, to a more relaxed, raw, and romantically moody vibe. In every shoot I do, I strive to bring that raw vibe forward with shooting at different angles or helping my clients feel more comfortable in front of the camera in order to achieve a high quality, yet natural, end product. Every time I sit down to edit my shoots, I always make sure I dedicate time to every single photo or video to ensure that it’s not just a cookie cutter approach, but instead, it’s something that would make your jaw drop and could live on the “big screen”.
Being a small business in WNY is such a fun adventure for me! I love being able to connect with couples who call this area home, and to discover what new love stories are brewing around the corner. I love taking time to really get to know each couple in order to best express their love in a unique, visual way.
