Love stories and tender portraiture.
Documentary-style photography allows events to unfold unscripted as we capture the emotions, details and subtle connections while you feel at ease throughout the day.
We know that no two stories are the same, so we take the time to get to know you and become invested in your story before the wedding day. Whether it’s morning preparations or evening departures, we will be at hand to document the big moments and the quiet in-betweens. Our service allows you to choose half-day or full-day coverage, with the option to add-on engagement sessions, motion film coverage and finished fine art albums.
The poetry of the everyday.
Amidst the wilderness of motherhood and chaos of family life, I seek to find poetry in the everyday. To record details of intimate gestures; the curl of fingers, the wisp of hair, soft rosy cheeks, and the feel of their little heart beating against your own.
Too often, we hear, "I wish I had done this sooner". Let today be the one day before that someday slips away. Our Family & Motherhood sessions are for maternity, newborn and the extraordinary, ordinary days of family life. Relaxed and honest by nature, we encourage you to be fully present and to simply enjoy each other so that we can best capture the indescribable: the essence of how it all feels.
The greatest gift.
Family albums and framed fine art prints are our greatest heirlooms. Printed photos are experienced and valued in a way that digital files could never be. Feel the weight of something tangible that will stand the test of time and be treasured by family and children for years to come.

For the majority of the day, we like to take a documentary, fly on the wall approach in recording your wedding day. This means that we aim to be as unobtrusive as possible, and to capture both yourselves and your guests in a relaxed way. That being said, we do provide guidance and direction during family portraits and the location session, and promise to never make you feel cheesy or awkward during these times.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our wedding collections begin at $3750, inclusive of one photographer and your full gallery of high res images, edited in line with our brand. Collection options include beautiful fine art albums showcasing the highlights from your day, as well as other additions such as engagement sessions, second photographers, and motion film coverage.

As a rough guide, our coverage usually begins with bridal preparations an hour to an hour and a half before the Bride needs to leave for the ceremony and ends when formalities are over at the reception - usually with the first dance and the opening of the dancefloor. We suggest at least an hour for location photos at a convenient point in the day and are most happy to make suggestions that suit the logistics of your day and the look and feel you are after.
I shoot 80% of my weddings solo however I recommend a second photographer if you are having a larger wedding (100+), have a tight schedule, or are keen on having groom preparations photographed simultaneously on the day itself.
Yes! National and international commissions are welcome. Travel fees apply to weddings outside the Sydney metro area - please get in touch for a quote.
Yes. There is always an opportunity to purchase an album at a later stage at the a la carte rates. In this increasingly digital age, albums are close to our hearts and if you are able, we encourage purchasing one as part of the package so it is not something left by the wayside and forgotten as the years go on. We look forward to sharing some of our beautiful albums with you during our studio consult.
Yes. All our wedding collections include non-watermarked, edited, high resolution files for your own personal reproduction. We are also proud to offer a linked print and framing service with our favourite family run Australian lab through your online gallery to order and enjoy at your own convenience.
In order to book, a signed contract and $2000 retainer is required. Your balance is due 30 days before the wedding, with final details for the day also required at this time. We cannot hold any dates without a signed contract and retainer.
We aim to turn around our images as quickly as possible, however also invest the time to create an edited body of work in line with our brand. As a guide, your images will be uploaded onto a password protected online gallery within 4-6 weeks of your wedding date for you to view and share.
For at-home sessions, mid-morning sessions tend to work well with kids; however, I am happy to take your lead if there are specific memories you are hoping to capture. Before our session, I will ask for your guidance on the rhythms and routines of your family life.
For outdoor sessions, sunrise and sunset are hands down my favourite times to take photos. The light is gentle and flattering with a soft, warm glow and golden hues that you just don’t get at other times of the day.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, and I would LOVE to. There is a film fee of $250 to cover film and processing costs.
I want you to feel comfortable in your own skin. Textures, layers, and neutrals are timeless and often work well. I send through a client prep pack before your session, which has some guidance on dressing for the day.
Yes! However, given my style is very candid and natural, I suggest organising these sessions around an activity such as a picnic, beach adventure or an indoor at-home session doing things you love to do together as a family. I can take all the group photos that the parents or grandparents request, but also all the quiet magic and subtle gestures that make your family who they are!
As a professional photographer, I believe this is one of the most valuable services I offer and perhaps the most often overlooked. Your time and money invested deserve to be celebrated rather than remain in hiding on a drive or cloud somewhere.
Once your session is complete, your images are hosted in a private gallery linked to my favourite lab with an abundance of beautiful products that can be ordered and shipped safely to your door. I can help design keepsake albums for you to hold in your hands and heart. I’m also available to provide advice on creating gallery walls, print and frame sizing.

Trish from Tealily was the first on our list for our wedding! She was more than a photographer to us. From the very beginning, she has been constantly there for us, giving us advice and assurance during the stressful planning process. On our wedding day, she was a dream to work with. She was calm and collected at all times. She gives great direction and captured every moment beautifully. The photos came back exactly how we envisioned it to be: dreamy and filled with emotions. Thank you Trish!
STEFFI & DARRYL
To say it was an absolute pleasure to have Tealily shoot our wedding would be an understatement. The lovely Trish and Joel worked seamlessly together to capture the essence of our union in the most magical way - their dedication and care so masterfully evident in their work. We were so honoured to spend some time with them prior, where they took time to understand who we were and what was important to us. We continue to be blessed by Tealily’s professionalism, passion, and genuinity - eagerly awaiting our next shoot!
Trish is a master of visual storytelling as she captures precious moments. My husband and I are camera shy and had never done a shoot before but Trish made us feel so relaxed and natural on our wedding day with heaps of funny banter too! We also gifted our parents with a grandparents shoot and Trish lovingly frames their story together within pictures that adorn our homes even though distance separates us. Her perspective is fresh and honest, her personality bubbly and warm, a rare gem to find.
I don’t think I realised how special it would be to have something like this but it really fills me with so much joy seeing myself with Claudia. I haven’t felt the best this pregnancy with self image and confidence so seeing how beautiful these are has helped me to see a bit differently even if I don’t feel it! I also don’t have anything like this with my own mum and seeing these I wish I did. I would have loved to see us together at this age especially now i am a mum myself. It’s really a priceless thing to do.
