I’m a child of very curious, adventurous and art-loving parents. My attention to detail and love for visual art comes from my art historian mother’s obsession with architecture and frescoes. I visited countless European churches and cathedrals, it was my first encounter with figurative art, and I have always been fascinated by it. Hiking amazing landscapes around my beautiful homeland, Slovenia, gave me the inspiration and since I was a child I wanted to combine nature and people in my work. While studying Documentary Photography at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Netherlands, I discovered the magic of developing film which comforted me in my will to become a Professional Photographer. I started as a Fashion photography assistant while studying at ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland in the following year.
Strongly influenced by Jacque-Henri Lartigue I decided to follow his steps and travel during the summer on the French Riviera portraying families and couples on the beach.
I began to shoot weddings by chance and one recommendation led to another. I quickly found myself photographing unique high-life ceremonies all around Europe and Asia.
I realized that I could combine documentary photography / editorial fashion and cinematography to bring a more noble touch to documenting weddings. While sailing in the Caribbean for four months last year, I fell in love with the chicest and naturally preserved, tiny French island, Saint-Barthélémy and decided to move here, while committing fully to my life-time passion, photography and film.
I want to capture who you really are and in natural lighting
I like to create stories and images that are as individual as the people whose tales are being told. My past clients are mostly creatives or entertainment industry talents and entrepreneurs who value an editorial approach and crave refreshing results.
I’m really looking to work with people who want to create as much as I do. I will always stay true to my style and the creativity that I’m drawn to in photography. I want to capture who you really are and in natural lighting.
I’m drawn to people with an edge, people who want something interesting and beautiful and make a statement. I want to feel a rush, a connection. I want to get to know you; this is about your story, the art of life and the essence of your love, it’s not just about pretty pictures.
Attentive, spontaneous and supportive.
It has been a fantastic experience & a great pleasure to have the photoshoot with Tisa! During the preparation phase we received great guidance and inspiration, in addition to a moodboard space created for us to exchange our ideas. The photoshoot itself went very smooth and with an amazing vibe - Tisa is great at capturing those unforced moments on joy, laughter & happiness. She was very attentive, spontaneous and supportive yet not at all demanding or instructive, which is a great skill when working with non-professional models 🙂 In addition, she knows the island by heart and was able to show us the most beautiful hidden spots to get the best shots. We would definitely recommend her to all couples and families on a holiday or honeymoon!
A wonderful artist and friend.
Tisa is a master in feeling a group of people comfortable in front of the camera. It is not her taking the picture, it’s the group creating it with her together. A wonderful artist and friend.
I feel transported back to the day and nostalgic.
Tisa captures true moments as they unfold beautifully. Whether it is of people, the venue or the detailing on your dress, she has a great eye and shoots everything naturally, in their element. Looking back at my wedding photos, I feel transported back to the day and nostalgic. The photos really tell a story of the day, the atmosphere and vibe comes to life all over again. She was very discreet, blending in with the crowd and not in your face. Tisa stays until the very end of the party so you really have the full picture from start to end! I would book her again for sure but unfortunately, I will not be marrying again!
