Hello, I am Tess Lucas, a highly experienced and sought-after luxury and destination wedding photographer. With over 15 years of experience in the industry, I have dedicated my career to capturing the beauty and romance of weddings through my lens.
My love for photography is only surpassed by my passion for travel. As a connoisseur of world travel, I find inspiration in exploring new destinations and immersing myself in different cultures. Whether I'm photographing a grand wedding in a magnificent European city or a peaceful beach ceremony in the Caribbean, I bring an unparalleled level of artistry to every shot.
As a proud wife and mother to a beautiful blended family, I understand the importance of capturing life's most precious moments. I believe that photography should not only document an event, but it should also tell a story that evokes emotions and captures the essence of the day. My ultimate goal is to provide a seamless and exceptional experience for my clients while creating stunning and timeless images that will be treasured for generations to come. Let's embark on a journey of unparalleled beauty and let me capture your story with artistry and grace.

Harmony with Nature: I hold a deep respect for nature and the environments in which I work. It's my commitment to capture your love story while respecting the beauty and tranquility of the natural world that surrounds us, and acknowledging that we are often on traditional territories and Treaty lands. I'm dedicated to leaving no trace behind and paying our respects to the Indigenous peoples and their connection to these lands.
Celebrating Authenticity and Diverse Love Stories: I treasure the uniqueness of every love story and the authenticity it brings. Whether it's the rich tapestry of different cultures or the true connections that define each wedding,I'm committed to capturing what makes your day special. I stand as an ally for the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities, and embrace the beauty of love's diversity.
Every Moment is Precious: As a photographer, I deeply believe that life's most precious moments are fleeting. It's my mission to capture the laughter, the tears, and the little moments that we want to hold onto forever.
Palm Springs & Joshua Tree captivate me. The desert's raw beauty makes it ideal for elopements or family getaways, offering tranquility & adventure. I've never been to a desert I didn't love! I feel that there's something amongst the cacti, the red earth and the sand that allow creativity to flow fluidly.

Paris, with its ornate architecture and romantic language, is a dream. Exploring this city with my husband was a delight. Every moment, from savoring wine and cheese to wandering its enchanting streets, felt like pure magic! I actually cried 4 times while we explored Versailles, it is pure opulance.
Mexico holds a special place in our hearts. I've photographed numerous weddings in Mexico and some or mine and my husband's favourite places include Tulum and Cabo San Lucas. The incredible cuisine, rich history, and warm, inviting people make Mexico a world of its own.
Visiting Soest, where my Oma grew up, was a dream come true. The fairytale-like charm of cobblestone streets and quaint homes had been stories from my Oma for years. Seeing it in person with Garrett was surreal, making Germany a place of our most cherished memories.
Visiting Dubai with my dearest friends was a one-of-a-kind experience. We had the thrill of sleeping in the desert, dressed in stunning gowns for camel rides, stayed on the Palm, ascended the Burj Khalifa, and got completely lost in the beauty of some of the world's most incredible mosques.
Visiting New York City was a lifelong dream for me! Gossip Girl and Sex & the City had created this vision of NYC that I had to experience for myself. The city that never sleeps with its iconic skyscrapers and bustling energy is exhilerating! The vast culinary scene made every meal an adventure. The fashion and art were inspiring. NYC is a place where dreams come true, and I cannot wait to work here again!

Nova Scotia, my home sweet home! I'll never tire of antique shopping, apple picking, exploring Halifax and the surrounding towns, the best beaches, the most beautiful autumn season, and I even miss the rain sometimes. I love returning home to photograph weddings and visit my lifelong friends. I'll always be an East Coaster!
I am fascinated by our world!
