Once time has lapsed and memories have been forgotten, photos are there to remind you of the good times!
I love to draw inspiration from the love, laughter, characters and atmosphere surrounding you, all the while aiming to document your wedding day story as it unfolds in a natural and unobtrusive way. I love to photograph a lot of candids, capturing those little glances, details and other things that you were too busy to notice on the day. Nothing is more beautiful than real smiles and expressions and I will be there to capture them for you with a genuine, creative and truly personal approach.
During your location photos its all about finding beautiful light and locations to put you in and giving you some direction to make the magic happen. I never interupt or pose a moment that is already beautiful as it is. Most importantly I want you to feel comfortable with me, be yourselves and have fun so that we can produce the images that really reflect you and your amazing day. If this sounds like what you are after then I’d love to hear from you!!
All packages come with the high-resolution images professionally edited in Tess’ signature style. All images will be provided to you on a wooden USB, in a boutique linen box along with a few other little extra goodies. Generally you will have them within about 4-6 weeks of your wedding date… sometimes sooner. And once you’ve got them you are able to print and share your images for personal use.
These beautiful fine art albums need to be seen and felt in person so that you can truly understand their worth. The images are chosen by you upon recieving your high-resolution images on USB, then an album plan is put together by Tess and you can make any neccessary changes to the layouts. Albums come with 30 pages and once finalised will be all ready for you within about 3 weeks. There are many different fabric and leather cover options so you can have lots of fun personalising your beautiful album.
Tess travels to weddings regularly throughout the ACT, NSW and beyond. If you are getting hitched within an hour of Canberra or Batemans Bay there are no travel costs. For anything further a travel fee to cover accomodation and travel expenses will be charged.
BOOKING FEE & BALANCE
A booking fee of $500 and the signed booking form is required to secure your wedding date. This amount is deducted from the total package cost and is non-refundable. The final balance is to be paid in full no later than 1 month prior to the wedding date at which point it is non-refundable also.
All packages include a principal photographer (almost always Tess unless otherwise noted). Tess is a very experienced wedding photographer and so there is no need for an assistant photographer at most weddings – usually it just gets in the way of photos and Tess is well and truely able to walk around and cover different angles during the ceremony of both the bride and the grooms expressions. For getting ready photos Tess usually goes to the grooms place first as they need to be ready at the ceremony earlier anyway and then the brides place next. It works really well this way! A second assistant photographer can always be added to any package if you want though.
If you’d like to catch up in person at some stage to discuss it all in detail, to take a look at the albums and make a booking then I’d love to meet you and hear all about your wedding or couple portrait plans!
