About Tessa

This isn't your average "about me" page — this is a photo of me with my mom.

I lost my mom to cancer when I was seven years old. As each year passes, the photos I have of her grow in value exponentially. Photographs have the ability to instantly bring her back to me. This is where my belief in the value of photography was born. 

My favourite photos of her aren't the staged or posed photos, but instead the real ones. When she's mid-laugh or unaware of the camera. Those are the photos that best captured her heart. It's those fleeting moments + uncensored details I have grown to love and prioritize. To my core, I believe these are the moments + details worth capturing on your wedding day. 

Inclusivity + equality are at the heart of my business. I will never turn a couple away for their race, gender or sexual orientation. 

This sentiment is extended to all of my couple's guests, as well as to their other wedding vendors. Everyone is treated with love and respect.

Unique Editing Style

I have spent countless hours over the years developing the look & style of my editing. My presets are hand-made and one of a kind.

I always aim for timeless, true-to-life colouring that maintains a warm finish and flattering skin tones. The final product is not too bright, and not too dark — and your images aren't over edited, but are edited just enough to add some magic!

Generally speaking, wedding photographers don't do any kind of retouching to images. This means they only edit the colour and exposure of you photos. 

I put in extra time and care to retouch little details, such as distracting light switches on a wall, or forgotten hair ties on a wrist. While this does not extend to full skin retouching or body photoshopping, I do believe retouching these little details instantly elevates your photos!

Clients can expect a gorgeous selection of sneak peek photos delivered between 24 hours to one week later, depending on their package.

Then, a delivery of their full wedding galleries a fast 5 weeks after the wedding, rarely stretching that to 7 weeks in the busy season.

“There aren’t enough words to express how grateful we feel to have found Tessa. She is pure magic. 

From the moment I came across her photos, I knew I didn’t want anyone else to document our wedding.   I was so worried that it would be uncomfortable to have a complete stranger photographing us, but she had this effortless way of making us feel so at ease.I truly could not have imagined a better day, and I fully attribute that to Tessa. She has an incredible eye and such a beautiful heart.

We are forever grateful to have had her photograph one of the best days of our lives, it absolutely would not have been the same without her.”

"Tessa was our saving grace when it came to our wedding planning. After having to cancel due to Covid, we were so unsure about what we wanted and how to proceed, but one thing we did know is that we wanted Tessa there. 

Not only was she warm and fantastic on the day, but the tips she provided in the lead up and the extra attention she gave made us feel so much more confident with her on the day. She guided us with ease and made the both of us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, the portrait session with just the two of us was easily one of the top moments of the day. 

Since the day, Tessa has delivered our pictures in a timely manner and they are oh so beautiful. Every time we look at them we get goose bumps. We can't thank Tessa enough and are so thankful we chose her as our photographer on the day."

"Not sure where to even start with Tessa. She is AMAZING.From the minute we enquired all the way through to our wedding day and beyond... Tessa cares! She helped, answered questions and supported us throughout the whole wedding planning process and made us feel completely confident in her.Her photos are INCREDIBLE and her patience, easy personality and adaptability on the day and in the lead up was better than I ever could expected. We felt so comfortable with her having not even met her in real life until she shot our wedding day but we felt like we had known her forever. We could not thank you enough Tessa.

We look at our photos most days and fall in love with them (and each other) over and over again because of you. Thank you!"

"Tessa, what an absolute pleasure to work with! From the moment we met for our engagement shoot, it felt like we had been friends for years.

She is an excellent communicator and did a great job of making a couple of awkward people feel comfortable in front of the camera. On our wedding day, she’s was incredible at keeping to the schedule, making sure we got the shots we wanted while also capturing all the little details and the vibe of our day.

It was a really nice experience to have someone we could completely trust and when the sneak peaks came through she far exceeded our expectations! I’m so grateful to have such beautiful memories of our day. You’re amazing Tessa!"

Where do we start? — The moment I met Tessa I felt instantly at ease. The entire photo process would have to be one of the funnest experiences of my life, it WAS so natural that we were completely and 100% us the entire time. Tessa knows exactly what’s going on and didn’t leave us doubting a single thing and ensured the whole process was smooth from start to finish. 

I feel so blessed and lucky to have had Tessa capture our special day that we will cherish forever. The photos are honestly outstanding and incredibly timeless. Everything I had ever imagined was exactly what we got. 

You’re an absolute legend Tessa and you sure take the most timeless photos. We cannot thank YOU enough. I hope we cross paths again one day!"

From the moment we met Tessa on our special elopement day she made both my husband and I fell so at ease. She had such a calming beautiful nature and captured every special moment and emotion from our day. Our shoot afterwards was so much fun and such a good laugh.

Tessa never made us feel awkward or like we had to pose and because of this she was able to create pure magic!

"Absolutely recommend! Let me start by saying that none of the reviews are exaggerating, and neither am I when I say that Tessa is truly exceptional at what she does.

 It is evident in her conduct and work that she truly has a passion for travel and her work. She went above and beyond to make our couples shoot happen, not only was she understanding and patient when we had to reschedule the date, but also the location... to the other side of the world... She was wonderful in helping my partner plan to turn our shoot into a surprise proposal.

 She is the type of person you will immediately want to be friends with and we are so grateful we had someone like her be a part of such a special and intimate moment. Thank you for capturing such cherished memories so beautifully"

"We found Tess and  immediately fell in love with her classic and natural style of photography that didn’t look posed, staged or forced. Tess’ easy going and relaxed nature put us both at ease during both our engagement and wedding shoots, this was particularly helpful given we can be quite awkward in front of the camera normally! 

We absolutely LOVE the photos Tess has sent back to us so far for our wedding, we cannot stop looking at them and we cannot wait to see the remainder!!
Tess was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. She captured our day perfectly and we look back on the photos with very fond memories."
