Starting with the first email I sent, Aaron was very attentive and patient, even meeting with us to discuss options. The day of the wedding Aaron and his wife handled our spirited families with ease and we got every picture we wanted and more! The pictures are absolutely gorgeous! The worst thing about West Michigan Photography is that I now have to decide out of the many beautiful pictures which ones will go in the scrapbook! I would highly recommend them!

What a wonderful job they did with our large group. We loved both group and candid shots. We had 15 people in our group and they did a wonderful job! We were very happy!

Aaron and Agnieszka were absolutely wonderful to work with. Very friendly but unobtrusive, thoughtful about poses and willing to suggest things that they thought would look nice as well as taking our suggestions into consideration. We could not have had better service.

We highly recommend West Michigan Photography! We asked friends for recommendations and did not have luck with the two referrals. I found the other photographers very expensive and not available. I found West Michigan Photography’s site by searching the web. We found West Michigan Photography to be a big hit with our family. Aaron was very responsive and flexible. We loved both he and his wife. They were both great to work with in person. We would definately use them again! We have some great pictures from our vacation in Michigan.

I am thrilled with the photos provided by West MI Photography’s husband-wife team, Aaron and Agnieszka (Ag-Nish-Ka) Tanis. The couple created a wonderful collection of pictures from our May 17, 2014 wedding that my husband, Mark, and I will treasure for years to come. The fun angles and beautiful close-ups truly captured our day in the printed “proof” album provided within the basic ceremony/ reception package. In total, West MI Photography shot 2,100 pictures, which we now own in CD form. I was very concerned about finances at first, but we got a great value, wonderful service, and NO regrets. Aaron and Agnieszka worked well with every one of our family members - from our 8-1/2 month old niece to our 92-yr old grandmother (who flew across the country to be at the wedding). They even got those with challenging camara-shyness to smile and enjoy the experience. I would recommend West MI Photography to anyone!

We just received our photos back from our wedding in August! We are so happy with the work Aaron and Agnieszka did! They worked around our schedule all day, which was great because our timeline was thrown off and they still managed to get every photo we he planned on! We decided not to do videography- I was so impressed when we got the photos back because every moment was captured I felt like I relived the day all over again and didn’t even need the videography. Thank you both so much!!

Aaron and his wife took our wedding photographs at a golf course in Paw Paw, Michigan. We could not have asked for better photographers. They are simply amazing! They were there for every photo that we wanted and know how to arrange everyone to get the best picture! I loved having both of them there to capture different angles and different layouts. They works so well together! Being the bride, I was relaxed knowing that they would get every picture plus more. I will be recommending them to everyone else. I know I will be using them for future pictures some day!

We used West Michigan Photography for a family portrait while we were on vacation. Aaron and Agnieszka were responsive to all of my questions, helpful in choosing a great location for a family photo, prompt for our shoot and a lot of fun to work with. Our photos arrived before Aaron thought they would be done and they are excellent. All around an outstanding experience working with Western Michigan Photography. I will encourage Aaron to give anyone my email address who has question. I can’t recommend him highly enough

West Michigan Photography shot my daughter’s senior pictures in July. They did an excellent Job. They knew some of the best locations, took the time to get some really good shots and were willing to let my daughter make several changes of clothes. They were also a joy to talk with and it was a very positive experience all around. Highly recommended! Thanks Aaron and Agnieszka for some great pics and attention to detail
Holland, MI
My wedding day was better because Mr. and Mrs. Tanis were there. They were prompt, affordable, friendly, and creative. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! They stayed so late into the night making sure to get videos and photos of the WHOLE night! We will definitly be going back to get all our family photos taken by West Michigan Photography!
So patient! And so great at working with your comfort level. My fiance and I got our engagement pictures done on the hottest day so far this year, and the picture site was crowded. Aaron and Agnieszka were able to pick out another location that worked out even better from our first and I can’t wait to see the photos! Even more, I can’t wait for the wedding!

We are extremely pleased with the pictures and working with West Michigan Photography couldn’t have been better. Truly a great experience!! We will definitely call them for all of our professional photography needs and highly recommend them!
Saugatuck, MI
Our family spends a week each summer in the Saugatuck/Douglas area. This year we decided to have a family picture taken there and West Michigan Photography did an awesome job. They were a pleasure to work with, flexible with our vacation schedule and worked so nicely with all our family - six of whom are 9 and under. We have beautiful pictures and would certainly recommend Aaron and his wife to anyone looking for a great photographer.

Great job all the way around, and highly recommended. Aaron and Agnieszka were right on time and already getting pictures of the venue when we arrived to do our first look photos. We asked Aaron to ‘drive’ as we made our way through all of the needed photos before, during and after the ceremony- and we were not disappointed. The did a great job directing everyone into position, and making sure we got all of the normal family photos knocked out. A nice bonus was the advice that both Aaron and Agnieszka were able to provide throughout, including that the most efficient way to clear the rows after the ceremony. Agnieszka was very nice and did a lot to help my wife with her dress as we moved around for different photos. She also worked well with keeping our 1yr old flower girl smiling and facing the camera. The two worked together very well as a team, and we enjoyed their company outside of the just talking about photos. They really did help to make our day special while capturing it all and providing great ideas.

Aaron and his wife took multi-generational family portraits for my family this summer and did an excellent job. They came prepared with several ideas for locations and combinations of family members, were expert at giving instruction to both the adults and children, and were very professional and responsive in making all pre- and post-photo shoot arrangements. Most importantly, the finished product is beautiful. I would recommend them to any one with need for a great photographer in the region.

We had a wonderful family experience with Aaron and his wife. They are both very personable and open to doing what you want which makes it a great photo shoot. We highly recommend them. They even got some great shots of a busy 1 year old who was not in the right frame of mind to have his picture taken :)

West Michigan Photography did an amazing job with our family pictures. We had a large group of seven families with three generations. The session went very smoothly. They even helped to convince my reluctant three year old to take part and smile! Mr. and Mrs. Tanis made sure that we had all of the pictures and poses we wanted and were very helpful in arranging small and large groups. The pictures turned out great!

My Husband and I got married back in August. West Michigan Photography did an amazing job at our wedding and reception!! It was so nice having two photographers and we can’t believe how great our pictures turned out. We both have a ton of family so I was worried about getting all the pictures done in time but they kept us moving and we got every picture we could have hoped for. I would highly recommend them for any of your photography needs. Thanks again!!

Our first family photos were taken by Aaron and his wife and we couldn’t be more pleased. They were very easy to work with and helpful since we were planning to shoot on vacation where we had never been before. I highly recommend West Michigan Photography if you are looking for an easy and professional experience and beautiful photos.

My family invited West Michigan Photography to Saugatuck to capture a family reunion at the beach and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. The Tanis’s were very easy to deal with before, during, and after the photo shoot. We had 5 families and a mess of little kids in our group, 5 aged 5 and under, and Aaron and Agnieszka were very patient and understanding of how difficult it can be to wrangle that many attentions. Their calm, relaxed demeanor was easy to draw from and they ended up capturing some excellent expressions and moments. The photos came out really beautiful.

We had Aaron do our wedding video and could not be more happy. The price was excellent, no other company was even close to the price. We were so happy with the amount of time Aaron spent at our ceremony and reception. We could have not asked for more coverage, and the final video is amazing. Would recommend this company to anyone. We are very happy.
Hudsonville, MI
Aaron & his wife were wonderful to work with for my daughters pictures. We had a perfect fall day, with lots of ideas from them as well as ideas of our own which they were very open to. I think my daughter was a little nervous at first but they both worked easily to put her at ease. Very pleased so far with our experience. We haven’t seen the proofs yet but I’m sure we’ll be just as happy with those! Thanks so much!!
Grand Rapids, MI
West Michigan Photography provided videography for my wedding in Grand Rapids, MI, in May 2010. We had contacted several other videographers, but West Michigan Photography was the best we found. They were easy to get in touch with, both over the phone and by email, and were utterly flexible and willing to meet with us in person as well. When we did meet in person, to “interview” the owner/photographer/videographer, he was very professional, giving us plenty of samples of his previous work and explaining in detail the services he could provide. The warmth, professionalism, and quality of the work led us to choose him to do our wedding video (it also didnt hurt that the cost was right in line with our budget). On our wedding day, we actually had two separate ceremonies and a reception, so it was a long day. However, West Michigan Photography was there all along, catching every important moment (and all of those awesome unimportant/unplanned moments that make the wedding special). We never had to worry about him catching anything, and it went off without a hitch. Great quality, very easy to work with, extremely professional, and all at a reasonable price.

We used Aaron Tanis from West Michigan Photography, to have videography our wedding and reception we just received the HD DVD, and it was amazing! Reliving the day all over again! Great job! Can’t wait to watch this video with my husband again years down the road.

With all the details that go into planning a wedding there are sure to be hoops and obstacles along the way. Fortunately for us, West Michigan Photography was the one detail that went off without a hitch. From our initial meeting all the way to the reception, they were nothing but professional, friendly, punctual, and now that we’ve seen the proofs, AMAZING photographers! Upon arrival at the ceremony site, they were able to get every picture done that we had requested as well as many candid shots that are priceless. We would DEFINITELY recommend them for any couple who are tying the knot. For personal reasons, we selected them specifically because they were a husband/wife team and they lived up to every expectation we had.

From start to finish Aaron and his wife have done an amazing job! Our family pictures are perfect. I couldn’t be more thrilled with them. We live out of state and I would highly recommend Western Michigan Photography to locals and people from out of town. From the very first e-mail, Aaron stayed in contact. On the day of our shoot the weather report was not good. Aaron was in touch with us through out the day with updates on if our shoot would take place. The weather and our pictures are perfect! Thank you!!!

West Michigan has done it again! A successful family photo session with three teen age boys and a dog yielded many fantastic shots. Love the ability they have at capturing the beautiful lighting at sunset at our beach cottage. Back for more next year. Thanks again!

West Michigan Photography did a wonderful job at my daughter’s wedding. The pictures are beautiful. The husband and wife team is great so we were able to have twice as many pictures taken which wouldn’t be able to have been done with just one photographer. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Great job!!

They did the wedding video for my wedding and you wouldn’t even know that they were there! What was even better is that the video turned out fantastic and was very reasonably priced! Aaron did an excellent job and I would highly recommend them :)

Mr. and Mrs. Tanis make an awesome team! Between the 2 of them, they make sure the lighting is ideal, clothing is laying right, and there’s not a hair out of place. We are very pleased with our wedding pictures. Their knowledge of photography put us at ease and allowed us to enjoy our day. They are very professional and personal. They even printed out the pictures we sent them of poses that we wanted and made sure to get each one. We highly recommend hiring them as your wedding photographers!

If you want your wedding videoed but don’t trust just “anyone” this is perfect. This is just what I was looking for- professional yet simple. I didn’t want anything fancy and the price was very reasonable. Aaron was great to work with, very prompt in responding to my emails or questions. He stayed out of the way at the wedding and yet still captured everything we wanted!

We were extremely pleased with West Michigan Photography and would highly recommend them. Aaron and his wife did our son’s senior pictures. They were so easy to work with and the pictures look amazing! I am having a hard time deciding which pictures I want:) Prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be back for our daughter’s senior pictures in a few years!

West Michigan Photography shot our wedding early this May. Aaron and Agniezka were great to work with. They had fun with us, had great ideas for pictures, and were very pleasant to work with. We got our pictures back and were just stunned at how beautiful they were. Nothing was missed! My mother was shocked at how many great pictures they took of us during the ceremony without even being noticed. With the two of them, they were able to take traditional pictures and try creative shots at the same time. By far the best wedding pictures I have ever seen.

I was so happy to find West Michigan Photographers after hunting for months. They have great prices and they stayed until their work was done. They made sure they got every picture we asked for and they did so with a creative twist. We loved working with them; they made sure we had a wonderful time and we reccommend them to every bride who wants fabulous pictures for a fabulous price!
Big Rapids, MI
Aaron and his wife did our wedding pictures a year and a half ago—they captured some beautiful shots from the day and were flexible and professional. We recently got an extended family portrait—West MI Photography was the first place we went! I would definitely recommend Aaron and Agnieszka to anyone who is looking for a photographer. Thank you so much—you do great work!
Holland, MI
West Michigan Photography does great work! We had Aaron and Agniezka take pictures of our family reunion @ Tunnel Park in Holland, Michigan. We couldn’t be more pleased with how they turned out. We had 9 little ones in our group of 22. All the little personalities that didn’t always cooperate didn’t phase them. We’ll treasure the memories they captured forever!
