About Tess

Hello! I’m Tess.

I love travelling to new places, do-it-yourself projects, chai tea, cute puppies, home decor magazines, the beach, mangoes and watermelon, yoga, skiing, sunday brunches and of course photography.

I’ve always had a love for art and design and 6 years ago while feeling a little lost in my desk job as an urban designer I decided that I wanted to be a photographer….  I’m pretty sure everyone thought I was crazy throwing in my architecture degree and a pretty cozy job to start all over again.  But alas, I went back to uni, finished a degree in Photography, started my own business and now here I am and I’ve never looked back! I love it!

I work from my purpose built studio on our 5 acre block 12 minutes from the Canberra CBD with my wonderful husband Sean (aka. DJ Sean Luca), my cheeky little baby Siena and our super cute (and equally cheeky) cavoodle Coco. The studio is surrounded by a beautiful country setting- perfect for family photos inside and out.

I’m based in Canberra and the NSW South Coast most of the time now but travel frequently to photograph weddings and portraits all over the ACT, NSW and beyond… getting married in Hawaii?… I’m happy to travel there too! 🙂

So now that you know a little about me, I’d love to know all about you… tell me your story so that I can best capture the real you.
