What my clients are saying:

“Tania photographed my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. She did an amazing job! Very detail- oriented, loved the candid-style photos. It never felt like she was in the way, or that we were fakely posing with cheesy smiles.

Everything was
organic and fun, the photos were outstanding, and we are so glad we hired her and ordered a photo album from her, as these treasures will last for generations!!!

In an age where everything seems to move a mile a minute, it’s essential to slow down, be intentional, and invest in the people who matter most. I think that’s something we all strive to do, but how do we actually do it?

Well, the truth is, there will always be things competing for our time and attention, and the nature of time is that it is always moving forward, despite how much we’d love to push the ‘pause’ button and savor that moment just a little bit longer. I’m not sure it’s ever been “easy”, and it’s not getting any easier.

However, there is also something to be said for deciding that something (or someone) is important enough to make that extra effort for. To create space in your life for, and MAKE the time for, even when it’s hard to do. Yes, that’s easier said than done, but we have to try, and keep trying, or it’s not going to happen.

When we actually do that, that’s how the best memories are made. But that’s only the start of it. In order for those memories to “stick”, and live on for future generations, we must also remember to tell the story, tell it well, and tell it often. That’s where I come in.

As a luxury wedding, couples, and family photographer who understands the importance of printing your photos, using the best materials available, and in a way that guarantees you will look back on your photos often, I am all about telling your story in a way that will preserve your best moments together for many years to come. Whether your love story is just beginning, or you have grown together with your loved ones through many seasons of life, I would love to be there with you to document and preserve it for you and future generations.

weddings

There’s nothing more beautiful than that forever kind of love. The kind that you celebrate not only on your wedding day, but every day that follows.

There’s nothing more beautiful than that forever kind of love. The kind that you celebrate not only on your wedding day, but every day that follows.

Whether you're keeping it sweet and simple or going all out, I'd love to partner with you in capturing your special day!

My wedding collections are designed to be flexible, so you can build the experience that's just right for you. However, I’ll guide you based on my experience so you’re not booking hours you don’t need or considering options that don’t fit your personality or wedding vision.

Every booked wedding collection also includes free timeline planning assistance to ensure we have sufficient time to capture your most important moments without being rushed. This means that as soon as we are “official”, I will work with you to develop a detailed photography plan so that your day runs smoothly and you can relax knowing that you are in good hands, which will not only contribute to a joyful and low-stress wedding day, but also come through in your photos.

Wedding collections including 8 hours of coverage, a 1-hr engagement session, and a $500 product credit begin at $3350 and include free travel up to 100 miles from Lansing, MI. The average wedding ranges from 8-10 hours, but can be more or less depending on the details of your day. Collections including more hours, travel, and custom photo products are also available.

Engagement sessions, albums, a second professional photographer, and other products and services may also be added a la carte to any collection. For a limited time, those who pre-purchase their wedding album at the time of booking will also enjoy 20% off the album price! For more information on wedding albums, see below.

For my complete wedding price list and to see if I have your date available, please contact me.

Your wedding photos are some of the most important photos that will ever be taken in your life.

That’s why I cringe when I hear couples say that they “only want the digitals”. Why? Because, more often than not, that means that once the initial social media posts and shares die down, the photos end up seldom (if ever) being looked at again, and certainly not in the same way they would be if preserved in an album. That which is out of sight then becomes out of mind, and that is how precious memories are lost.

And worse yet, if something were to ever happen to those digital files (which, let’s face it, technology is not always our friend and things DO happen), that would be a devastating loss that I’d hate for anyone to experience.

Those are just some of the reasons why I strongly encourage you to include one or more albums in your wedding investment. It is frankly the best way to ensure you will actually look at, remember, and cherish your wedding images, share them with friends and family, and pass them down through generations.

When we meet, I will show you a variety of samples so you can see and feel their exquisite quality first-hand, get a sense of my design style, and learn more about available customization options. Once you see and feel the quality of my albums in person, you won’t want to put them down!

Couples investing in a wedding album can expect to spend an additional $1500 and up, depending on the length and details of your wedding day, album size, and other factors. Most couples choose a 10” x 10” or 12” x 12” album with 20 or more spreads and invest an average of $2000 - $3500 in their wedding album. For more information about albums and other available photo products, please check out my Products page.

engagement sessions

Remember the joy of your engagement forever with an engagement photo session! Available as a standalone session or as part of you wedding collection.

Celebrate your recent engagement with an engagement photo session! Engagement sessions are a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera and get to know your photographer before the wedding.

These photos also work well for "Save the Date" reminders for family & friends and sharing on your wedding website, but that is just the beginning. They can also be used in your wedding photo display, in designing a custom wedding guest book, or in a traditional heirloom album or wall art display in your current or future home.

When we meet to discuss your session details, we will also talk about how you would like to use your photos, show you some examples of what is possible.

Based on that discussion, I will provide customized recommendations for what you can do with your photos, where you can display them, and we will go into your session with those end goals in mind.

There are 3 types of engagement sessions available:

Mini session: 30 minutes. Includes 15 full-res photos on USB with 4” x 6” proofs. $250.

Standard session: 1 hour. Includes 25 full-res photos on USB with 4” x 6” proofs. $350.

For extended sessions requiring additional time or travel and other “out of the box” elements, please contact me.

Looking for family portraits without the "cheese" factor that capture the authentic nature and real-life interactions of your family together? A lifestyle family portrait session may be right for you!

These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home or at an outdoor location of your choice, and focus on the candid moments, real smiles, and laughter that happen when everyone is just being who they are. 

Your $200 session fee includes a pre-session consultation, 1-hr photo session, my time after the session selecting and editing your best images behind the scenes, and an image reveal & ordering meeting where we will review the photos together and choose your favorites for printing.

Products & digital images are not included with the session fee. This allows us to take a truly customized approach and gives you the flexibility to order as many or as few items and types of items as you’d like once you’ve seen your images.

During the image reveal, I will show you the best images from your session and mockups of what they will look like in your space so that you can be confident knowing they will look great before finalizing your order.

Available products include canvases, framed prints, and lay-flat albums. Lay-flat album and wall art purchases also include high-resolution digitals of images used in the final album or wall art gallery design.
