About Tanis

Hello, it’s great to meet you :)

I’m Tanis and I’m a wedding + family photographer.

love to capture love, simple as that. The excitement of a newly engaged couple, the joy of a young family, the love of a couple uniting as husband + wife – I live for moments like this.

Chilliwack, BC is my home, but I shoot anywhere throughout the Fraser Valley area. I also have a heart for travel – whether your wedding be in Australia, Mexico, Ireland, New Zealand, Whistler, Hawaii or Vancouver Island… wherever it may be, I’ll be there!

I love my husband with all my heart. He truly brings out the best in me. He is my best friend and he is my soulmate – we love to have fun together. Any day spent with him is the “best day of my life!!” (If you’re lucky enough, you just might get to meet him! He second shoots the majority of weddings with me, and will sometimes assist on portrait sessions too!).







Anything + everything you need to know about me:

// I am the oldest of three siblings

// I could listen to Coldplay, Imagine Dragons + Michael Bernard Fitzgerald allllll day long

// I also work as a full time Graphic Designer on weekdays

// I’m pretty sure I was supposed to be born in Australia. Or New Zealand

// I love fitness and working out at the gym – especially with my husband – it’s my favourite part of each day

// I have the best husband, parents & siblings in the world

// I could live in Lululemon happily for the rest of my life

// I’ve never had my ears pierced and never plan on getting them done

// I have a lot of shoes. My husband has more

// I used to wear Umbro shorts and high-top runners throughout high school ‘cuz I thought the boys liked it. I was totally wrong

// I’ve decided diagonal is the best way to sleep. My husband disagrees

// I’ve recently discovered a love of cooking, thanks to the wonderful world of Pinterest

// I’m deathly afraid of sharks. I don’t care if it’s a picture, a cartoon or on TV – don’t even go there

// I’m addicted to Starbucks non-fat Earl grey tea lattes

// I love trail mix; but only eat the m&m’s

// I’m a creature of habit; I proudly get that from my Dad

// I’m a night owl and produce my best work after 1am. I’ve learned to survive off of 4 hours sleep a night for the last ten years

// I love meeting new people… that’s YOU!

  • Amy - Are you currently available to shoot a wedding on Aug 15/15?ReplyCancel

  • Jovita - Hi,

    I was just looking over your wedding photography album and it looks so nice! I am getting married Aug 17th 2013 and I am looking for a photographer. I was just wondering if you had a full album you could send me? Do you shoot alone? Do you have a price package for wedding coverage? How long have you been a wedding photographer?
    Also, have you ever show Cecil Green Park house at UBC? If so, could you send me a link to your work there? That is where we are having our wedding reception.

    Thank you (and sorry for the barrage of questions haha)

  • Gordon Walker - I met Tanis on a bus in Australia years ago! Yes, she should have been born here – whilst fully a Canuk, beneath there lurks all the creativity, outdoorsy thinking and downright craziness of a true blue Aussie. Love your website and your work Tanis. See you and your hubbie Downunder one day soon! Gordon and little Sebastian – well he;s 11, so not-so-little!ReplyCancel
