The Wedding Experience

Hey there!

Ok, so you liked what you saw on my website and want to know a bit more.

I'm super flattered!

I know how much work planning a wedding is and I don't want the photography side to be stressful for you! It is my goal to make the experience fun and relaxing and be able to document all the details, moments, and celebration surrounding your big day with timeless, authentic and natural images. I think being a wedding photographer doesn't just start and end with the camera, but actually learning and getting to know the couple to be able to capture the moments that make your relationship truly unique and special.

So take a look thru this guide that will give you a better feel for my work, my style, options of wedding collections, pricing, and to get to know a little more about me and how I work with my clients . Enjoy some of my favourite images from past weddings and I hopefully I am the right fit your big day!

Ok, a little about me!

So if you've made it this far you know a little bit about me already! 

When it comes to my photography style it is very much how I love to live my life.. fun! I am the photographer for the ones who want to laugh, play, run in the water, take a trip down a dirt road and find a beautiful location to cuddle up.. you will not see any stiff poses, all natural and authentic emotions here! I achieve that by making sure we have picked somewhere comfortable and perfectly YOU and by giving you prompts and a little bit of direction to bring out those natural emotions.

On a normal day you will find me outside enjoying nature, whether that is in my garden, going for a hike, headed out fishing, and getting away for awhile camping. If I am not outside I am cozied up with a coffee - but lets be honest, if it is summer that coffee is being enjoyed on my porch or around the fire, and is most likely a beer.

I am most passionate about bringing happiness to my life and the people around me. My mission is to laugh as much as humanly possible while fully living and loving every moment we have on this gorgeous earth! 

If I sound like someone you wouldn't hate having follow you around on your wedding day we are going in the right direction!

ELOPEMENTS

Planning something less traditional and more intimate? If the big party and all the planning just doesn't appeal to you this is where you're in luck! I love elopements and have a special collection price just for you. Whether you are wanting to escape to a mountain top or gather in a meadow at sunset with just you and your witness', I have a collection for you! These prices will get you started but each elopement is different due to travel time, location, flights, permits etc. We will sit down and customize this to exactly what you need. I have helped plan elopement and intimate weddings before so I know of a lot of vendors local and around British Columbia if you are in need of any recommendations.

Engagements

I absolutely LOVE engagement sessions. They're always so much fun and it is our first chance to work together. You will get a feel for how I work and a glimpse on how your images will go for your wedding day. I will learn how you naturally interact with each other and you will get more comfortable with acting comfortably and flirting on camera. Then on your big day you'll be PROS. Don't worry - I guide you both the entire way thru your session.

We will plan your session before hand with location, outfits, and the time of day that will make your location shine! Most engagement sessions are about 45 minutes long but if we plan an awesome adventure session where travel is involved we will have to add time!

tips!


  • Engagement sessions are perfect for save the date cards, your wedding website, or Christmas cards that are not you in your wedding attire!
  • Make sure your clothes are comfortable as you want to be able to enjoy the session and not worry about your outfit. Don't match. Use a similar colour scheme in different items that you wear so you are cohesive. Neutrals are the easiest to match! Also, outfits that have movement are also great!
  • Try and schedule your wedding makeup trial for the day of your engagement session. Have them alter the look a bit after so it doesn't look exactly how you will on your wedding day, but now you don't have to worry about your makeup for your engagement session and you get to see how the makeup will look in photographs!



WHAT TO EXPECT

Consultation

If you like what you see, let's set up a meeting! Getting together for coffee or drinks is an essential part of the whole process. You don't want a photographer that you don't mesh with tagging along the entire day. We want to make sure we "click" and that I can get to know you both, this way I can confidently capture your engagement session and wedding day to reflect your relationship and personalities. If meeting in person isn't possible due to location we can set up a video call.

CONTRACT + BOOKING

Moving forward! I will bring a contract with me to our meeting for you to take home and look over as well as an emailed copy to you. We can discuss any questions you may have that you might have forgotten to ask at our meeting or that came to you after via email. As soon as your contract is signed and your non-refundable retainer is paid you're all set up! You have now gained a photographer and a budding friendship!

Meetings + timelines

Leading up to your wedding day we will have meetings to plan out your engagement session as well as make your day-of timeline and the final meeting before your rehearsal. The day-of timeline is important for me to be aware of as this will help judge how much photography time we have or need for your day. The better your schedule is planned the better your images will be as we will have the time and nothing is rushed. I will provide a sample timeline that you can use and I can help fill in at one of our meetings.

Rehearsal

I love coming to the rehearsal as this is a quick and easy way to get associated with your wedding party and family before I point a camera in their faces the next day. This also gives me time to scope out some locations and get an idea of how I will use the space for your images. We will do a walk thru of where we will start and finish and I will explain how the images may look due to weather and sun at the specific location. Then I am off to prep for your Wedding Day and you can hopefully get a great night sleep for one of the most exciting days!

Wedding day

On a typical wedding day I will arrive just before the time we have decided for the amount of coverage you have chosen. During the ceremony, we capture all the magic and emotions, making sure to get those teary-eyed glances. I also try to do this as quietly and "behind the scenes" as possible as this is not my moment, it is yours! Right after the ceremony, family gathers for formal photos while the rest of the guests make their way to cocktail hour or off to occupy time before the reception. I will then steal you and your bridal party for romantic and fun images. I will make time for just the two of you to breathe and spend a little alone time in your first moments as newlyweds.

The rest of the night is party time! If I am there for your reception I will capture all the exciting activities (grand entrance, dances, cake cutting, games etc.) I will also spend a lot of attention documenting special details of the day like food, decor, candids of guests, and anything and everything to fully preserve the essence of your big day.

photo delivery

I know it is hard to wait for such important images so this is why within the first 48 hours I will have a few images uploaded to a teaser gallery for you! Then over the next few weeks I will spend my time sorting, picking the best images, editing, and curating them in a way that tells the story of your incredible day from beginning to end. Within 6-10 weeks depending on the amount of coverage you have paid for, you will receive a gallery full of Hi-res images to download and share with friends and family. You are free to share your images online, print your own prints, and send them out as thank you cards to your guests. I will not try and up-sell you on add ons or restrict your access to your own wedding photos. If you are interested in professionally printed products I would be more than happy to discuss this with you after your wedding.

Testimonials

We're so lucky we found Tangena!

I couldn’t be happier with our engagement and wedding photos. She did an amazing job at capturing such natural pictures of us and our families. Her photography and editing style was exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t have asked for more. She is so lovely and amazing to work with and always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, which we usually don’t. Her price is very affordable for the quality of photos and I was surprised and happy that included an engagement session as well!

Lets do this!
