Tell us a little about yourself and your work

We’re a Vancouver based hubby and wife wedding photographers team. We celebrate spontaneous couples and their unconventional weddings.

jelgertanja3What do you love about weddings?

The spontaneous craziness, the unfiltered intimate moments, but mostly getting to work with couples that resonate with who we are. And the dance parties… We love getting into the middle of the action.

jelgertanja2Do you have a favourite memory from working at Terminal City Club

We haven’t had the pleasure of working at Terminal City Club yet. But a favourite memory was the getting ready of a bride and groom before their wedding reception. Both of them were writing and practicing their speech while watching the Simpsons. Being there as they were laughing and getting ready together was a wonderful experience.

jelgertanja4Can you give us any hints of what you will be bringing to Hush?

We are coproducing The Groom Show, that will be a complimentary show for Hush visitors. It focuses on the needs of grooms and gentlemen alike through a vendor expo and 4 workshops. Find more information at

What wedding planning tip would you give to an engaged couple?

Get rid of all the wedding magazines, stop following wedding blogs, walk away from Pinterest and just sit down with the two of you and think out loud: how would we throw the most amazing party?

jelgertanja5Lastly, just for fun, what is something that not many people know about you?

Jelger used to be a lawyer in Belgium, before we moved to Vancouver in 2011. Also, he believes ‘Canadian geese’ should be called ‘geese’ when in Canada. Tanja was a physiotherapist before she picked up a camera and if she won the lottery, she’d buy a palace-sized cat home.
