About Tanna.


Based out of Oelrichs, SD, Tanna White is passionate about photographing people in a way that captures their story, their beauty and their life in a meaningful way. 


Living on a ranch with her family has given her the opportunity to photograph many genres of photography. She loves working with the agriculture community surrounding her and photographing weddings & families that take place on the ranch with a rich history & generational stories.  


Tanna's journey towards becoming a professional photographer began in 2010 when she was able to purchase her first DSLR and officially founded Western Lifestyles Photography in May of 2011. She converted her business name to Tanna White Photography in March of 2016. Tanna has since had professional photography training from the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, MT and Two Mann Studios based out of Canmore, AB. Tanna took the leap to full-time photography in August of 2014 hasn't looked back! Tanna White Photography enjoys serving the area as a premier Black Hills wedding photographer and has photographed over 40 big days!


As mentioned before, Tanna lives on their family ranch in Oelrichs, SD with her husband Shawn and children Owen, Haylee & Tate. Taking the leap to full-time photography has allowed Tanna to spend more time at home with her three little ones, help Shawn out on the ranch and tackle the many projects of a busy ranch wife. 


Her photographs have been shown in Working Ranch Magazine, Western Horseman and her wedding photography business has been featured on The Knot.

Black Hills Wedding Photographer


Tanna is amazing at what she does! She went above and beyond what was expected for our wedding photos. She was so easy to communicate with leading up to the big day and did everything she could to help make the whole photo planning process as easy as possible. On the day of the wedding she helped me to stay on schedule but was also so flexible when ever there were delays or unexpected events. She was calm and patient the entire day which made everything go so much smoother. As for the wedding photos - I look at them everyday and am still blown away at how well she captured all the special moments and little details so perfectly! I will cherish the photos she took forever and would highly recommend Tanna to anyone needing any photos taken! You won't be disappointed!

Tanna and her team were SO amazing for our wedding day! She was very communicative beforehand and with it being a destination type wedding, that was really important to us. She gave great advice on where we could take great pictures and wanted to make sure she captured exactly what she wanted. Her passion for what she was doing was obvious and made it so much fun. I'd recommend her over and over and over again!
