welcome …

Raw, soulful wedding imagery from my heart to yours.

Wedding and lifestyle photography in London, South East England and South Africa.

oh hey there…

I’m Tessa, a South African-born photographer currently nestled in the gorgeous countryside of Kent, UK. I’ve got a not-so-low-key obsession for capturing  moments and turning them into beautiful memories that’ll last forever and ever (and ever).

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings for more than ten years, and let me tell you, I’ve seen some things! From ugly-cry speeches to impromptu dance-offs, my documentary-style approach means I’m there for it all.

I love getting to know each couple and creating a personalised photography experience that’s unique to them. There is no one-size-fits all scenario here. So let’s have some fun! No need to stress about the details; I’m here to make sure you can kick back, relax, and enjoy marrying your lobster (10 extra points if you get that reference!)


Your wedding day, forever.

My superpower is being able to make your wedding day last for the rest of your lives. What kind of magic is this, you ask? Well I don’t just take pictures… I take moments and turn them into your most treasured memories that will be relived for generations to come. Pretty cool, huh!

love notes…

Making memories from moments

“Thanks SO much for everything. You are so talented and we’re looking forward to seeing the pics! From being the part I was dreading a bit, the photos ended up being one of our favourite parts of the wedding…we really enjoyed spending the time together and felt so comfortable ♥ Thank you again!”

— Drue & Gary

“We could not have been more delighted with how Tessa captured our special day. Thank you for helping us to feel at ease in front of the camera and being a wonderful support throughout our wedding day! We adore the photos and will treasure them forever.”

— Amy & Cuan
