a note from emily

I don’t know if people realize how much it means to photographers when their clients adore the photographs that were made for them. I know personally, I pour so much of myself into a wedding day or any photo shoot, that hearing the feedback from a client can instantly send me to cloud 9!!!! Today, I received a sweet email from Emily. I shot her an John’s wedding two years ago and today was their anniversary. This is what the note said:

Dear Tanja,I am writing my annual thank you note for the gift of our wedding photos! :) I think I actually get more grateful for them with each year’s passing - they are just so precious to us. I’m also more and more convinced that you are truly in a class of your own, especially with the wave of film photographers flooding the market - there’s just something about your work that is clear, emotional, breathtaking, so lovely, and to me, utterly unique.

I could never thank you enough for coming to Connecticut two years ago, but thank you, thank you, thank you!!!


SWOON!!!!! and THANK YOU to Emily & John for allowing me to be a part of your seriously, insanely beautiful day! Here are a few memories.

paula + mike

Paula + Mike’s wedding was adorable in every way. Paula’s smile lit up the entire day and Mike would grin from ear to ear just watching her. It was precious and I am very thankful to have been there to capture their sweet, sweet love.
