Hello, it’s great to meet you :)
I’m Tanis and I’m a wedding + portrait photographer. I 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 and Vancouver area. I also have a heart for travel – whether your wedding be in Australia, Mexico, Ireland, New Zealand, Whistler, Hawaii or Vancouver Island… I’m 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 occasionally second shoots 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
// I also work as a full time Graphic Designer
// I’m pretty sure I was supposed to be born in Australia. Or New Zealand
// I love to run
// I love buying the big bags of chocolate chips from Costco. But I don’t bake with them, I just eat them by the handfuls
// I have the best parents, siblings and husband in the world
// I could live in hoodies, ripped jeans and TOMS 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 own way too many cardigans
// I’ve decided diagonal is the best way to sleep. My husband disagrees
// I cook one big meal on Sundays. And then we eat left overs for the rest of the week
// 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 love holding a coffee cup (preferably Starbucks), but I hate the taste of coffee
// 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!
