Tanya Olander Photo


I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Tanya. My fiancee (now wife) and I were fortunate enough to have our engagement photos done with her and they are stunning! As a photographer, Tanya was professional (messaging to warn of of even the slightest chance that she might be late (she ended up being earlier than us!), fun (the smiles in our photos were as genuine as they were because of her), and very knowledgeable (her fame as a photographer seems to be spreading! We were actually stopped in the middle of our photo shoot by a stranger who happened to be an admirer of Tanya’s work from Instagram). Tanya is great at working with changing conditions, and she has a great eye. With a dark, cloudy sky and even rain at the end of our shoot, Tanya explored alleys and old buildings looking for good backdrops for us, and these turned out to be our favourite shots! In the end, we were so happy with the photos, my wife and I ended up printing them to go along with our centre pieces and welcome table on our wedding day and we got so many positive comments about them! They are treasured memories of our engagement, and we have Tanya to thank for them!

Tanya is a wonderful, amazing photographer! She did an excellent job to make my family picture perfect. I would highly recommend her as very professional and accommodating. She’s such a natural that she was able to capture perfect shots of my 5-year-old son and 10-month-old baby daughter. Now, we have perfect family portrait. I simply love her personality and photography!

We’ve been working with Tanya for product shots to launch our ethical fashion business with a collection of handbags. One of the many things I love about Tanya is her ability to tell a story through a photo. She puts in the effort to understand the atmosphere we want to create and then follows up with incredible shots that bring our products to life. She is thorough, thoughtful, creative, dedicated and fun! It’s been a great experience working with her.

Tanya did such an amazing job on my son’s senior photos. He was not the most willing and enthusiastic model, yet she was able to capture very unique and artistic shots in a very casual and unposed manner. She worked with us all through the process to make sure she was able to meet both our expectations. The photos came out beautiful and are a fabulous keepsake of both his senior year, as well as our time in Vietnam. My only problem is, there are so many to choose from! I love them all!!

...We have been having annual photoshoots for the past 4 years and have been marginally satisfied with the photographers we found. With Tanya, we discussed my ideas regarding location, groupings, style and general feeling for the shoot. Tanya was very accommodating and accurate in delivering exactly what I had in mind. She provided 30 digital images for our perusal. We selected our top 15 photos and she edited them to produce a final, full frame file. And she did all of this within 7 days. We’re very happy with her work and will ask her to photograph our family again.

Tanya as a person is an amazing individual. Very dynamic, creative, personable. All the right things at the right place. On top of that, she has an amazing talent for photography and ‘visualizing’ the shots she’s taking and build stories around them. A shot is not taken if the result can’t make up a story. As a result, it gives amazing photographies that are not only gorgeous but also full of life and absolutely usable as material for your content or storytelling. If you’re looking for a photographer to bring your product or business or anything to life, Tanya’s the right person to talk to. You won’t be disappointed.

Tanya did a photo shoot session for Cathay Pacific Team including our Country Manager and myself. We were very happy with the results and the quality of her work. Tanya’s style fits our brand image requirement very well as she also knew what worked and suited best for us. The whole experience was seamless. We highly recommend Tanya for any of your professional portrait requirements. Thank you Tanya!

Tanya is phenomenal. We knew upon meeting her that she was the perfect person to capture our Wedding Day. There is no detail too small for Tanya. Her warmth, glow and dedication to her work put us at ease on our day and she truly became one of our family and friends whilst shooting at our wedding. Tanya’s photography style gave us something unique and different, with beautiful photos that we will cherish forever. We can’t wait for the arrival of our baby Louie so that she can capture more special memories for us!

I was gifted a photo tour with Tanya for Christmas and had a great time. She has a knack for finding incredible candid shots, and her simple tips upgraded my photography more in three hours than I’ve been able to do in two years...
