I like making people feel great and beautiful. Wedding photography is very creative. If you need to plan and your are confused about the itinerary of your wedding, I am there to help.
The wedding details is one of the first things I shoot when I enter the bridal suite. I gather the rings, garter, jewelry and anything that is important to the couple and the magic begins. I get to create artistic detail shots, using reflecting surfaces, flowers and anything related to the wedding. With the light from a window I shoot away with my 100mm macro lens. I also like to use this lens to capture close-up shots of the bride getting her make-up done.
When the couple gets dressed, I place them by the window and use natural light. I also use flash when needed, but regulate it as fill flash, to keep the ambience.
The ceremony I approach photojournalistic. I follow the couple around without intruding, leaving enough space using my 24-70mm and 70-200mm.
I tell the couple in advance to make a family-shot-list, so we won’t forget anybody. The couple then gets to take the portraits.
Playing with light and finding the best location, even in mid-day is exciting. l look for back-light and shade to make the couple look the glamorous and beautiful. I encourage the couple to go out for a sunset shot, if time permits. I love using my 70-200mm for nice close-ups, but also have a variety of other lenses to choose from. My 35mm makes nice environmental shots.
For the receptions I have a great set-up of several flashes to give texture to my party-photos. With slow shutter speed and flash I can create motion around the couple.
As a result you will have a great memories of your special day when you get my email that your photos are ready and your album is in the mail.

I Can't say enough about Tanja. She is an amazing photographer. She is passionate, professional, unobtrusive yet great at directing. Tanja did both my engagement and wedding fotos. Totally outstanding. She worked with our vision but also gave insight and suggestions as to how the camera sees things. She gets it. I do alot of professional food events and will hire Tanja for all of them. The best pictures were the ones Tanja posed us in.Sent on 06/03/2015

Especially Great Candid Shots
Tanja was great to work with - flexible and accommodating. Our favorite photos of the day were the candid ones from the wedding and reception. I'm amazed at the number of photos that she took, as one didn't even realize that she was taking them! She blended in beautifully though out the whole event, taking photos at perfect moments. Everyone was appreciative of her approach and style. Thanks, Tanja!Sent on 12/14/2018
