A BIT ABOUT ME
Thank you so much for popping by!
I’m thrilled that you’ve found your way over here… I’m Tanya Jacobs, a Durban wedding and family photographer, and I love photographing joyful moments, one beautiful wedding or family session at a time.
I spent 10 years telling all sorts of stories in the media world as a journalist and editor, before turning my passion for photography into my career.
I love getting to know people and photographing their love, joy and emotions. It’s such an honour to be able to do that!
I get to spend an entire day, or maybe just a short little session, watching people and capturing moments that I know they’re going to treasure and love forever.
With photography, I didn’t just find the need for telling stories fulfilled; I found the very heart of good people and families and that makes me so happy.
So when I shoot a wedding day, I go all in – I shoot the detail, the ‘getting ready’ and the nervousness, the love, the tears, right till the end on the dance floor when things can get really entertaining.
If you’d like to know more about my wedding day collection or my family packages, please get in touch and I’ll email you some more details.
And in case you’re here to find out more about my non-biz life…
I’m a small town girl, originally from Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal. In 2013, my husband, Christiaan and I packed our three scotties (William, Maggie and Bailey) and two cats into our cars and followed a removal company to our new home on the coast.
Christiaan and I got married in November 2012 at Providence in the Midlands, on what I now describe at the happiest day of my life (at the time, I thought our wedding day was definitely the best day of my life).
The best day happened three years and three days later when we welcomed our first daughter, Ella Grace into the world on 6 November 2015.
Being a mom? It’s the best thing in the world!!
Being a wife, mom and boss? It’s the hardest challenge I’ve ever taken on, but it’s the most exhilarating, exciting and rewarding.
Spending lazy days with family, climbing mountains, baking, DIY-ing and travelling to new places are among my favourite things. Along with chocolate milkshakes and eating olives.
