Where I shoot
I'm Tanya 'Ann Marie'.
I'm the smiling face behind 'Ann Marie Photography'
I began photographing under the business name Ann Marie Photography in 2012. Shooting my first Wedding as a 16 year old in 2013. (Wow that seems insane reading it back right now!) My business started with very small gigs, second shooting for other Photographers. by the time I was 20 I was taking on 10-15 weddings a year.
What does a Session with me feel like?
I am looking for nothing more then to create an enjoyable and comfortable experience for you.
While standing in front of a camera can sometimes be daunting I try my best to make it more playful than uncomfortable!
Instead of spending all of my time telling you where to go and what to do during my sessions, I like to spend more time creating laughter, memories, and a comfortable atmosphere (while telling you where to go and what to do). I feel that this helps to make your photographs
that little bit more natural. I would typically describe my photography style as a candid, light & airy style. But I like creating images that holistically reflect the personalities in the image.
Why Ann Marie?
I'm constantly being asked why "Ann Marie"?
I created my photography page/ business when I was 15.
Given the fact that I was operating a business at such a young age, I wanted just a little bit of privacy.
Ann Marie being my middle name was a way I could do just that, whilst still having an aspect of my identity in the branding of my photography.
Getting to know me!
Fun facts about me:
I moved from Alice Springs to Victoria in 2012.
It was Alice Springs where my photography passion blossomed.
I currently work part time at Priceline with a bunch of gorgeous loving girls and have now been there for 9 years.
I spend my spare time learning new recipes, soaking in the ambience of the newly wed stage and searching for inspiration for just about anything on Pinterest.
I have deferred my bachelor of Educational Studies to spend some time chasing my dreams of being
a professional photographer!
Now you know a little more about me,
I look forward to learning all about you!!
