Tanya Jacobs Photography

• real stories . captured •

I love photographing extraordinary moments in people’s lives, telling their story through authentic, honest and timeless images.

It’s not that I don’t love all the decor and elegant touches. I love all the beauty of a wedding. But it’s the real and raw moments that really capture me and telling that in a documentary approach means I get to fully immerse myself in what truly is the happiest day of so many lives.

I have been photographing weddings for a few years now, finally taking the leap into full time wedding photography in September 2015, just before we welcomed our daughter, Ella into the world.

I love that my passion is my profession and that I get to work with incredible couples who believe in me and trust me with telling their stories. You can view my portfolio here.

“We LOVED having Tanya as our wedding photographer! She made us feel so relaxed, so natural- she was so easy to work with. She was assertive with her direction, without being “pushy”; she really was able to get the best out of us! We LOVE our photos! Very natural, very romantic.” – David & Tricia, Lastingham Wedding Venue
