Lethbridge Wedding Photography Reviews
Here are some of the kind reviews from my Lethbridge wedding photography clients.
"My husband and I had Tanya Plonka as our wedding photographer in June 2020. She was amazing to work with, made us super comfortable, hiked to places to get the best pictures, and within a few weeks hand delivered to us a USB of the most amazing pictures ever! We highly recommend her as a photographer, and would definitely get her again."
"Tanya did amazing capturing our little wedding get away in Waterton! We married in June 2020 when no one was sure if the wedding was still going to be able to happen and she was extremely flexible and ready to make anything work. Even though things changed from our original plans she gave us lifelong memories and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her husband also caught some awesome candid shots of the whole family!"
"Tanya did both my engagement and wedding photos, and they turned out spectacular! She's extremely friendly, in addition to being generous and fair with her pricing (you get a discount for getting both engagement and wedding photo sessions done with her). Tanya and her partner, Cam, both move very quickly, so you get a lot of photos/options during your session! They are great at coming up with ideas in regard to poses, locations, etc. and the pictures always turn out fantastic."
"We had our wedding in Waterton Park in July of this year and one of the best decisions we made was to hire Tanya as our photographer. Her husband, Cam, and her are an amazing photography team. They know the area like I know the inside of my home. They work so well in sync with each other that I swear they were communicating telepathically. Our wedding was Harry Potter themed and Tanya completely embraced it by coming with ideas for photos that involved some magical touches. HIRE TANYA. Seriously, you cannot go wrong with her and the pictures last a lifetime."
"Andrew and I met with Tanya last year to do our engagement pictures and loved our experience. Both of us had never had our pictures taken professionally, but Tanya made the whole experience comfortable and made us feel completely at ease. Tanya and her husband Cam also took our wedding pictures this past May. We loved how the pictures captured our glee and the joy we felt that day. Both Tanya and Cam were lovely and we could not recommend them enough!"
"Tanya and her partner did an amazing job with our wedding! We couldn't have been happier with the quality of her work and her professionalism. We felt so comfortable during the whole process. They made it fun and natural even though we normally aren't comfortable in front of the camera. She was also very timely with getting us the finished product and we enjoyed the personal touches she included in the packaging. Thanks Tanya!"
"I would highly recommend Tanya as a photographer for any occasion. Both her and Cam were so wonderful to work with. Tanya made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera even with the crazy wind we had on our wedding day. Her prices are very reasonable, she's very accommodating and I was very pleasantly surprised at how fast we got our photos back. Love love love all of our photos!"
"Tanya and her husband Cam did an amazing job photographing our Waterton wedding!! They know the area like the back of their hand. Such a delight to work with & photos came out absolutely stunning!! Highly recommend them for any occasion. Worth every penny."
"I first met Tanya over 6 years ago when she photographed my best friend’s wedding in Waterton. Having personally watched Tanya in action and seeing her portfolio of work, I knew that I wanted (needed!) to hire Tanya for my DeWinton Community Hall wedding. Tanya and her husband Cam were so incredibly fun and easy to work with - friendly, prompt, professional, and patient. Tanya’s talent is obvious with the beautiful photos she takes, and her blog is such a fun and personal touch. Highly recommend Tanya, you won’t be disappointed!!!"
"Tanya and Cam were AMAZING at our wedding! They captured everything so perfectly and made us feel so comfortable! The candid shots they got were amazing as well! Everyone that has seen our pictures says it looks like a fairytale or that they are from a movie! I couldn’t imagine our day without them! I cry every time I look at the photos because they just capture the day so perfectly!"
"Tanya is both talented and very organized! We had not met her or Cam until the day of our wedding but she put us right at ease, and we are absolutely in love with our pictures. We would definitely recommend her to anyone!"
"Tanya is very easy to work with. She was on time for our elopement and took a lot of diverse shots. Our final photos are amazing and I definitely recommend her for anyone who needs a photographer! Thank you, Tanya!"
"Tanya was recommended by the staff at the Bayshore in Waterton. A few phone calls and a couple of emails got the process started. Tanya is as professional as they come. Our outdoor wedding was slow to start as we waited out a rain storm. Tanya passed the time taking casual pictures of the family. Once the weather cleared Tanya was quick to take charge and ran us through a series of shots. We had booked Tanya for 4 hours, she made sure to use each minute wisely and this yielded a plethora of quality photos. Professional, prompt, great personality and fantastic photographer."
"I don't have enough good things to say about Tanya. I have worked with her a few times and this last time was with our wedding. Not only does she have great prices, but she gets EXACTLY what you want."
"Tanya is the best! She has an eye for detail and was able to perfectly capture our favourite moments from our wedding. Not to mention our wedding day was extremely windy and cold but she stayed so positive and upbeat in challenging conditions :) Pictures turned out beautifully!"
"Tanya and Cam were absolutely amazing. They did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos and they turned out so well! I would highly recommend them!"
"Tanya was fantastic! We had her as our wedding photographer and all of our photos turned out so beautifully. We were very pleased with how she was able to capture everyone's personalities and the happiness of the occasion. She was very accommodating with the online photo gallery when a family member asked that it be reopened. She also drove us to a location to complete our photos when our MOH/BM left with our bag accidentally (car keys and all)! 10/10 would recommend!"
"Working with Tanya and Cam for our wedding was so easy! Tanya touched bases with us a couple times beforehand to figure out exactly what we wanted, and on the big day Cam and Tanya worked seamlessly to get amazing pictures that perfectly captured our day. We could not be happier with how our photos turned out! They will be an amazing keepsake for years to come. The photos were also delivered to us in a classy wooden box that displayed one of our pictures, which is beautiful. As a bride on a budget, I also liked how flexible Tanya was with hours and pricing. We opted for 4 hours coverage, and considering the quality of the photos, the overall price ended up being a steal of a deal. I would wholeheartedly recommend Tanya for any photography services that you may need!"
"I cannot begin to express how pleased we were with Tanya and Cam. We are from the States so planning a wedding from so far away can be nerve racking. However, Tanya took the time to talk to us a number of times to be sure they not only captured the special moments in our day but also to suggest shots that would add to our memories. We knew Waterton was beautiful and that it would photograph well but the way they captured our relationship and those of our children and families was simply amazing. We could not be happier and will treasure these photos for the rest of our lives."
"Working with Tanya was a great experience. She is professional, talented, and you can tell she is passionate about what she does. Tanya and her second shooter kept us smiling and on time all night, and she was so quick getting our finished photos to us. We absolutely love them, especially the candids that were taken of our family and friends. The whole process was smooth and enjoyable from the minute we met. Thank you!"
"Tanya was very responsive and great to work with for all aspects of our Waterton wedding. She was not only amazing at capturing our day, she was also so helpful in recommending other vendors and being able to show us other weddings in her albums that used those vendors. Tanya and her second shooter were very professional and easy to work with. We were amazed at the quality of the photos and the speed on which we had access to the edited images. Highly recommended. We often comment we will be calling Tanya in 5 years for family photos!"
"We are so happy with our photos from Tanya! She was quick to reply to my initial inquiries and I liked that we had a phone consult prior to booking her and prior to the wedding, both initiated by her. We had a plan and timeline and everything went smoothly with our photos. We got all the shots I had requested and then some. Can't wait to frame them and it will be tough to decide which are my favorites!"
"Tanya was great, prompt and professional. Even though our wedding was small she still gave it the attention we hoped for, including the children, unsmiling and energetic alike. Photos turned out wonderfully. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for that personal touch."
"We really enjoyed working with Tanya and her partner. They were confident in their work, organized and accommodating. Our vision was well executed and we are so happy with how the photos turned out! We hired videographers as well and were happy to see Tanya and her partner work so well with them."
"Tanya and her husband did a great job of our wedding photos. They were professional- timeley and made taking photos seem like the most natural thing in the world. We loved the sneak peak of our photos on her blog and we’re very happy when she delivered our photos in a cute little keepsake box. We hired Tanya for the fun and energetic shots we saw in some of our family’s photos and for her skill at shooting pets- she definitely delivered what we had hoped for."
"My wife and I got married in June and had Tanya shoot our wedding. We were absolutely thrilled with the results. We shot in two locations - Galt Museum and our venue the Southern Alberta Art Gallery. The individual and family wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and we could not be happier. I would strongly recommend having Tanya shoot after the ceremony as we elected to extend her into that time. The candids that were captured of our grandparents (who generally aren't too smiley) and the kids (who are all over) are photos that we will come back to forever. Having pictures from the reception and dance was worth it. From a logistics perspective I couldn't have been happier. Tanya was organized from the first time we met to the final delivery of the pictures. I really appreciated the updates throughout and access to a quick edit of the photos a few weeks after the event. From the close of the event to the time that I was holding the pictures was *exactly* as we discussed in the opening meeting. Honestly with the horror stories you hear of photographers losing photos, or taking months, or killing you with print charges just do yourself a favour and hire Tanya and her husband to take care of you. You will not be disappointed."
"We hired Tanya to capture our September 2017 wedding here in Lethbridge. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Our photos were stunning and we have received so many compliments on them. Tanya is very talented, patient and experienced. Her and Cam were so great on the day of our wedding. They made sure we captured everything I wanted and then some. Even put up with several props we had lined up. Would 110% recommend! Tanya also traveled to Waterton to help us capture our engagement photos as well. They were breath-taking! Thank you Tanya! Will call again to help us capture our lives moments."
"Tanya and Cam are incredible to work with! They made our wedding day so easy, and we couldn't have asked for more beautiful photos. I recommend them to everyone I know, and we'll be using Tanya for all of our photos in the future. Just amazing!"
"It was an absolute pleasure having Tanya come and take our wedding photos. Her and her assistant took some of the most beautiful photos with stunning angles. The area was beautiful and Tanya knew exactly where to go and where to take photos. If you are ever in the Crowsnest Area i would chose Tanya 100 times again! Thank you so much Tanya!"
"Tanya and Cam are amazing. They listen very well to your requests and captured exactly what we wanted. On the day of our wedding, they wore clothes that matched our wedding colours (very nice!), they were fun to spend the day with, and were very fast and effective with taking the photos. We had an online album within a week and pictures within 3 weeks. We had our thank-you cards with photos out less than a month after our wedding, people (including ourselves) couldn't believe it! Our photos are absolutely beautiful!"
"One of the main reasons that we chose you was because of your work with the Lethbridge Humane Society. It is important to us to support others that care about animal welfare, and it was also a huge bonus that you have experience working with dogs since our dog was involved in our wedding. I really liked that you were easy going and had fun with our wedding. It was really important to us to have very real photos that captured the essence of our wedding in Waterton, and this is exactly what you did. It was great that you were prepared and knew what we wanted which helped make our photo session stress free!"
"You were able to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. Even one of my bridesmaids, who is terrified of getting her photo taken! You were able to make us and our wedding party look great in the staged photos while still capturing the fun moments of laughter we had between photos."
"Very relaxed, stress free experience which made the day wonderful. The candid photos of all our guests and the wedding party brought the feeling of the day to life when we looked back at the captured memories. Our photographs are stunning with vibrant colours and all the details were captured beautifully. We are very happy with Tanya and Cam's work, we couldn't have wished for a better result."
"We love our photos! You both had a great approach with our guests in terms of personality and not being overbearing. I also appreciate your flexibility and availability for phone calls, emails, payments, etc... Everything was done professionally and on time. You listened to our requests and delivered quality photos, even sticking it out in the cold wind!"
"WOW!!! I don't even know what to say. I am sooo in love with all the photos! I looked at the blog first and just wow! And then the slide show to our song (I didn't even realize that you did that) and that made me quite emotional. Going through the proof gallery am I even more in shock and awe. I love all the photos soo much I have no idea how I am going to pick a couple to get early for our thank you cards. I am sooo soo very happy that you two were available to shoot our wedding, there is no way I could be happier! My god, thank you thank you thank you! Everyone that has seen the few photos you have posted have told me again and again how great of a job you guys did."
"I would say that out of all the wedding vendors I had to deal with, you were the best with every part of the process. You were organized and provided all the information I needed. And of course, the pictures turned out awesome! I've had so many compliments on them."
"Without a doubt, go with Tanya. The pictures were amazing! She never missed a single moment. It seemed as if there were 10 photographers taking pictures of everyone at the same time. She somehow managed to capture the perfect story of our wedding in such detail. When I look back at these pictures, it's exactly the way I want to remember it."
"Not only did we end up with beautiful photos of us and our bridal party, we also have pictures that capture every little part of the day from our emotions at different times, our decorations that we spent time on, and truly every element of our wedding. Not only was the quality incomparable, but also the amount of photos we received. I was really blown away by how many great photos we got in the amount of time we spent taking pictures! Pick Tanya because you will not be disappointed. You will have peace of mind that your pictures will be beautiful, well composed, and you will enjoy your day with her and Cam!"
"Tanya always knows how to catch 'the shot'. I've had four sessions with her now, and every single time I look at the pictures I cannot believe some of the moments that she catches. With Tanya, the photo-taking process is so natural and it doesn't have to feel forced. Tanya will be our family photographer for as long as she is in the industry, and we look forward to more sessions with her."
"Tanya understood what I was looking for and made sure to photograph all the little details that made the day so special. She captured our elegant boho style perfectly! With Tanya & Cam, you KNOW that you will get beautiful photos that will never disappoint! You never have to worry about sub-par photos because they are extremely professional and have a ton of experience."
"One thing that really sticks in my mind about our photo experience is how efficiently you used the time we had. I thought three hours wouldn't be enough time but it was all I could afford. Turns out, the pictures I got were above my expectations in every way! The quality/editing was perfectly suited to my style and the amount of pictures made it really easy to choose many great shots!"
"I get so many compliments on my wedding photos and am extremely happy with the turn out, well worth the money spent. I definitely got what I paid for."
"You really captured the spirit of the wedding party and everything we wanted the wedding to be about. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer."
