About Me

Hey you beautiful loved up humans! 

My names Tessa Kit Zawadzki and I’m a fine art wedding & portrait photographer based out of Perth, Western Australia. So you’ve probably wandered across this page to find out a little bit about me, so here it goes.

 

A little bit about my personality:

Many people say I am one of the friendliest, kindest, most laid back people they know. I absolutely love getting to meet new people and I feel so lucky this job allows me to make so many new friends with so many incredible genuine people. 

I spend a lot of time catching up with friends over coffee or nights of wine & cheese. Huge fan of summer, the sunshines warmth and the ocean. I’m my happiest when I’m going on adventures travelling the world or being creative. 

Family and friends... love and connection is the most important thing in the world for me. I’m so lucky to be able to document it for a living. 

 

A little bit about my photography journey: 

 

I spent my early years growing up between living in a small coastal town in Tasmania and the red earth of the Pilbara in the North West of Australia. After graduating high school I took a gap ( turned not so gap) year where I discovered my love for both travel & photography. 

I very first started being interested in film photography and lomography. Playing around with plastic toy cameras and polaroids before investing in my very first DSLR. When I turned 17 I took my camera to every birthday party I was invited to. I fell in love with snapping people having fun with smiles spread across their faces, in the moment surrounded by all their friends and family. 

I decided to start my own blog dedicated to portraits and started photographing styled shoots with other creatives. I loved the idea of creating beautiful images and getting to meet and work with such incredible like minded people at the same time. I eventually started getting work for personal, couple, family, pet, fashion and even commercial portrait photography work. 

While doing my photography & working for my mothers retail business I was able to have the freedom to travel. I was and still am completely obsessed. Travel came hand in hand with my photography and nothing makes me more happy than experiencing & snapping photos in new and exciting destinations. 

For many years I assisted & second shot for many other wedding photographers not rushing into the industry but doing my best to learn and take as much advice as possible before taking on my very own clients. I have finally launched my wedding photography business and I couldn’t be happier. I have met and photographed so many incredibly friendly & kind couples as well as worked with the most talented vendors. 

 

I shoot mainly digital and also film when requested. I have always been so intrigued by the beauty of film photography. It feels so romantic, timeless & nostalgic. There is something very special about the way film makes me feel. 

I am always more than happy to pass on as much advice and information as possible when it comes to planning and having a wedding. So if you feel like we may be a great fit I would absolutely LOVE to hear from you. Say hey and lets meet up for a coffee :)

 

Looking forward to adventuring and creating magic together.
