and thank you for considering First Class Photography!

We are Mike & Tanis Essery, a husband and wife team from Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. We have been married for 22 years this summer and have 4 beautiful daughters, ranging in age from 24 all the way down to 4!

Mike has been a photographer in some way or another for nearly 30 years. He has photographed thousands of families and children and hundreds of weddings. He describes himself as "a flake" and says he will do anything (or just about anything) to get that smile. 
Tanis looks after the business end of things...scheduling, editing...all the background work.

This is our story...we would love to help tell yours!
