STARTING A life together
AN OVERVIEW of
THE KERI TAN SIGNATURE PROCESS
Family is at the heart of everything I do; as an editorial family photographer, I’m driven to capture the connection between people, the bond forged through true love. A family photography session is an investment in that bond. I photograph all of the important phases of a couple’s journey; we might start with your engagement photos and then your wedding day, or meet for the first time when you’re introducing a new member to your family.
I use the lens of emotive storytelling to shoot all of my weddings. You might opt for traditional elegance or break for the border and elope, just the two of you. Maybe our ever-changing world has switched up your plans and you’ve decided on a micro-wedding with just your nearest and dearest by your side. Whatever your dream day, I’ll capture it all with patience, creativity and honesty.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
I pride myself on the authentic, narrative-led style I bring to my work as a couples photographer in New York. Years spent as an Art Director have honed my creative sensibilities; I have a keen eye for beauty, a natural instinct for composition and a sharp focus on detail. I understand that photography is not just about telling the big stories. It’s about finding room for the little ones as well. Because you never know which ones will matter to you most in the years to come.
My professional ethos is rooted in connection and positive emotions. I will be a calm, steady presence throughout our session. I believe that true authenticity can only blossom when we’re totally relaxed; that’s my aim with each and every person I photograph. I’m focused on our connection, as well as the connections in front of my lens. When we’re finished, I’ll select the best photographs that tell your story back to you, so you can relive the experience and emotions whenever you look at your images.
When we work together, I will provide a professional, diligent, supportive service. You can rely on me to represent your bond in a sensitive, creative way. I aim to capture the essence of each one of my couples. Being able to tell the internal story of your connection and the external story of your relationship is why I love this job so much.
What are the different types of couple's sessions you offer?
When will we receive

Help, we have no experience
in front of the camera!
That’s not a problem. Let me worry about everything that’s going on behind the lens. You just focus on your loved one and enjoy their company - everything else will fall into place.
You can wear whatever you’re comfortable in! Neutral colors are always a safe bet. If you would prefer a more formal look, that’s fun too - just let me know what you’re thinking and we can discuss options.
Can we request
I don’t offer extensive Photoshop retouching. The photos will be lightly edited to accurately reflect the colors, tones and all the precious moments of the day of the shoot.
We can shoot in-studio or on location, wherever you’d like.
