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.

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.
What they love...
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!
