My name is Brianna Blank and I run Blank-Slate Photo & Video, LLC! Primarily, I serve the WNY region but I love capturing weddings throughout CNY and the Finger Lakes region as well! As a photographer and videographer, I always strive to help my clients and couples feel comfortable, relaxed, and their most true selves in front of the camera. I love discovering a person’s essence and turning that into something visually stunning in the process. In the end, what my clients and couples walk away with are photos or videos capturing the most pure expressions, lots of love, and plenty of laughs.
Cameras and capturing moments have always been a part of my life. I first held a video camera when I was 4 and was filming my Dad carving pumpkins in our garage. As a kid, I always had a camera in hand. I would set out to document my childhood antics and film my bike adventures. As a teen, everyone knew you couldn’t pry my camera away from me! There is something so special about preserving a moment, and I wanted to save them all.
As I entered college, my love for photography and film continued to grow. I began freelancing slowly and participated in local film festivals. In 2014, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Media Arts and Communication Studies from Canisius College. I knew right away through my freelancing that my heart was set on photographing and filming couples. What was better than capturing LOVE? It is just so simply gratifying to get to know someone or a couple and to express what makes them unique with the world. Everyone is different. Every couple’s love story is unique. What makes you YOU?
My favorite part of my job is meeting new people and getting to know their stories! I am passionate about telling someone’s story in a way that is captivating, emotive, yet true and realistic. Knowing that my clients are happy with the way I capture their special day is a feeling that last a lifetime. I am always so honored to be chosen to capture a wedding!
My vibe is airy and light yet can also be moody and cinematic. Overall, my work is deeply romantic and authentic. If you resonate with raw beauty and a deep romantic vibe, I’d love to hear your story! – Brianna
