Hi! Welcome, and thank you for being here! My name is Tanya Jacobs, and I am a wedding photographer based on the sunny coast of Durban. I love this city, and I love all the amazing people I’ve met in it! I don’t drink coffee, I’m always on time and I think chocoloate milkshakes should be a regular part of each day.

I began photographing weddings in 2013 in the Midlands. I am passionate about creating images that will make you feel the emotion of your day and allow you to relive the joy and love you felt. I am even more passionate about capturing images of the people you love and those special moments, so you will always have a reminder of them, and the beautiful, joyful love on your wedding day!

It is such an honour to be able to do that for my couples!

I’m also a wife to Christiaan and together, we’re proud parents to our two year old little girl, Ella. We have three scotties and one cat and we, undoubtedly, live in a busy & mad house.

I hope this guide gives you a little peek into how I like to do things, and we get to meet soon! x

A Note from Simon & Dannielle

“You have the most wonderful manner, attitude, and light about you. We felt so much more comfortable than I had thought we would, having a photographer (a.k.a. a “stranger”) recording all of our most personal memories during the day – in truth, you fitted in perfectly. I feel like I’ve known you for ages, rather than having met you once!”

At Tanya Jacobs Photography, I pride myself in offering a premium wedding photography service to clients who are sentimental about the small things, hold memories dear and love the people around them.

Once I’ve sent you my entire wedding collection and you’ve paid your deposit to secure your date in my diary, we can start planning your engagement session and I’ll guide you along in preparation for your shoot.

I know what it’s like to be awkward in front of the camera, so with a little gentle guidance and advice, I ensure you look and feel natural during your shoot to get the very best images of yourselves.

I want my couples, and especially my brides, to love how they look in their photographs and I believe the best way to do this is by providing my couples with direction and guidance on how to ‘be’ in your photographs. I think an engagement session is the best way to build that trust in me, and to see just how easy it is to get natural photographs of yourself. It’s also a great way to get beautiful images of you now – newly engaged and in love!

Once we’re a few weeks away from your wedding day, we’ll get started on your timeline of your day. After five years of photographing weddings, I know a thing or two about custom timelines to suit every type of wedding day and ensure your day runs smoothly, and without any of those awkward ‘what do we do now?’ moments.

On your day, I’ll cover everything from decor, groom prep, bride prep, ceremony, family photographs, creative session and reception coverage. I know how important these photographs are, so I ensure your timeline provides enough time for each.

When the cake has been eaten, the dress has been dry cleaned and the guests have left, all that you’ll have left is your memories. Wedding photography is an investment into those memories.

My signature wedding collection starts at R15 500 and includes:

Complimentary engagement session
10 Hours of wedding day coverage
800+ Digital edited images
Online viewing gallery
75 Kilometres of travel for your wedding day

A Note from Jaco & Kailey

“Thank you for being able to adapt to us as a couple, being able to read and understand us and to showcase our relationship exactly the way it is. Thank you for your advise and guidance before and throughout the day. We didn’t feel like we were photographed but rather that we spent time with a longtime friend.”
