we're the landis'es

(BUT PLEASE CALL US HANS + TARA.... WE ARE FRIENDS NOW.)

HERE'S THE DOWN LOW.

We love Jesus, adventure, and people.

WE'RE REAL PEOPLE WHO LOVE REAL PEOPLE.

THERE'S THIS THING WHERE PEOPLE HIRE VENDORS JUST TO CHECK IT OFF A LIST OF THINGS TO DO.

We don’t want to just be another check off a list. We want to connect with you. Laugh with you. Cry with you. Help you through this crazy thing called life.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR THAT IN YOUR PHOTO TEAM, THEN HEY! WE’RE HANS AND TARA LANDIS AND WE WANT TO BE THERE FOR IT ALL.


I'M TARA.

And guess what? Photography isn’t my everything. It’s just one part of who I am. To the core; past all of the “things”, I am just in love with my Creator.

I'M IN LOVE WITH PEOPLE. I'M IN LOVE WITH MY SWEET LITTLE HOME IN PALMER WITH CHICKENS RUNNING AROUND AND FLOWERS BLOOMING WILDLY. WINDING MOUNTAIN ROADS AND THE SETTING SUN. TIME SPENT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND LOVING PEOPLE SO FIERCELY THAT THEY DO THE SAME FOR OTHERS.


I’M HANS.

The man (with the mustache) behind the photos. I love my family, my fishing rod, and my God. And also mountain air. I want to capture how you are naturally with your children or love of your life.

HIKING AND FEELING CLOSE TO NATURE EVERY DAY. GOING TO LOCAL FARMER'S MARKETS AND GROWING FLOWERS IN THE BACKYARD. COMPLAINING ABOUT SNOW STORMS IN JUNE, BUT LOVING PATIO DAYS IN JANUARY. FEELING DRESSED UP WHEN I PUT ON XTRATUFS. BEING SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO ARE HIGH ON LIFE.

We’ve become friends with so many of our couples even after the wedding day is over.

That takes a whole lot of trust, and we’re ready for it.


our story

We met in July of 2017, fell in love that Autumn, got engaged the following December and married in June of 2019.

Then, moved to our little home in Palmer, Alaska November of 2019! We have a testimony of redemption and grace and we love to share what God has done in our lives. Ask us about it!

our roles

The two of us are photographers. We LOVE that we get to offer both of our special photography touches during our sessions.

We work together so well that it makes you truly feel comfortable behind the camera, and we have so much fun shooting weddings together. Capturing photos of the greatest day of your life is one of our favorite things in this life.

also:

We love: hiking to places no one is at, long car rides, standing on top of a mountain at sunset, gardening, all kinds of food, our church (ChangePoint Matsu! Come with us!), the office, laughing, fishing, warm weather, coffee shops, traveling, and random dance parties in our living room.
