They are amazing to work with!

I could never thank Tanja for all her help when planning our elopement in Stanley Park. Not only did her and Jelger capture the day they made the picture taking experience fun! The pictures were stunning and brought us back to the moments of the day.

Incredibly Organized & Easy to Work With

These two are the reason our wedding day ran so smoothly! They are an incredible couple to work with and keep everyone relaxed so the photo’s look stunning. Their attention to detail and organization literally helped us throughout the planning of our whole wedding. They gave us a detailed schedule, were in constant contact on how we wanted our day to be captured, and their photo’s are gorgeous. Can’t recommend them enough!

Meet the team

Lead photographer

Hi, I'm Tanja, half of the hubby and wife duo Jelger and Tanja photographers.

I believe in doing at least one polar bear dip per year. (Jelger thinks that's crazy!)

I love petting all cats, including the scruffy back alley ones.

Having friends over for dinner is the best! Not only because I love food and cooking from scratch, but also because it makes me clean the house.

I used to be a physiotherapist in Belgium, but moved to Vancouver Canada and am now happily working as a wedding photographer for 6 years!

Life is short, so do what you love!

Lead photographer

Hi, I'm Jelger, half of husband and wife team Jelger and Tanja photographers.

I believe you're never too old to skip rocks.

I also believe in cooking every meal from scratch, which is why I make my own sausages and cure my own bacon. (so good!)

Because we're in Canada, I think a "Canadian Goose", should just be called "goose".

I used to be a lawyer in Belgium, before moving to Canada 7 years ago. Following my passion is the best thing I ever did. I haven't looked back and enjoy my carreer as a wedding photographer.
