This is Us

We are Michelle & Sean Tan.


We are a husband and wife team of two based in Seattle, Washington. Michelle is our main photographer and Sean does everything-in-between. We're college sweethearts and love meeting people from all sorts of different cultures and walks of life. We don't just love weddings, we love marriage. We hope that the pictures we take can remind you of the love and commitment you have promised each other at the beginning of your journey.

What Our Clients Say


Michelle and Sean were dedicatedly thorough with communication, addressing all of our concerns down to the silliest of questions we had (like, last minute selfies + “SOS! should I wear this dress or that dress for this part of the shoot?” the night before we had to fly off :P —thank you Michelle! You were so patient and such a sweetheart!) which left us extremely comfortable and with complete trust for them with the planning and execution, and boy did they greatly exceed our expectations!

Cavin & Alicia

Very satisfied with all the photos that Michelle took. I have to say, she goes the extra mile to make sure that we get all the photos that satisfies us. Michelle’s husband, Sean, also directs my partner since my partner is awkward in front of the camera. She captures not only beautiful moments but also the beautiful place, angles, and make sure we look good!

Derian & Jeane

We recently had our engagement photoshoot with Michelle and Sean in Grand Canyon, Arizona. At first, we were hesitant to do the shoot in a place where we’ve never been before because we didn’t know what to expect when it comes to the location, crowd, lighting, etc. But after connecting with Michelle, we felt at peace and confident because Michelle was not only knowledgable but she also did some extra research about the place and walked us through everything step-by-step and she listened to what we wanted!
