Hey! I'm Tilly and I'm a 27 year old photographer. When I was 11, photography introduced me to my love affair with light, and at 16 I got my very first camera and knew photography was the thing I wanted to do forever! In 2012 during my first year of university at UOW studying Visual Arts, I officially began my photography career.
I label myself as a 'lifestyle photographer' as I do not limit myself to any one genre of photography - I'm there for all of it; the weddings, the engagements, the music, and even the birth sessions - I'm there for the life moments! My style is very natural, real and raw, and focuses on honest & intimate moments. I like to keep things fun and casual.
When I'm shooting, I navigate between two styles and methods of photographing to create one cohesive narrative. The session will either call for a lifestyle or documentary style of shooting - or a combination of both at different times!
Not quite sure of the difference between lifestyle and documentary? To put it simply, lifestyle is a method of shooting where the photographer's hand gently guides or influences the scene. I may remove distracting items from the scene, pose the subjects naturally and give cues, or reposition the subject for best available lighting.
However, documentary is shot without interference from the photographer, so with no room to manipulate the scene before me, I am left to tell the story as it is. Without making adjustments such as posing or giving cues, I am free to focus on the authentic moments unfolding before me. Utilising these two methods of shooting allows me to do what I do best; tell your story.
A few things about me; I live for the Spring time, I love the smell of a bushfire and roll my car windows down in the summer just to smell it, I love collecting hot sauces and vinyl records, I love thunderstorms, growing and tending to my plants, gardening, and growing flowers in my cut flower garden. I absolutely adore music, it plays a massive role in my life and is very personal and intimate to me. I also love art (hence the degree and career, duh), listening to podcasts, and I have an incredibly strong affinity with nature and animals. I love thrifting, antiquing, and am passionate about living a sustainable & eco-friendly life. I also love researching my family tree and learning about local history, it's also my dream to discover and excavate a dinosaur fossil (lol). I'm addicted to horror, true crime and anything and everything 'creepy', including taxidermy and collecting curiosities. The Office and Parks & Rec, and Broad City are my favourite tv shows to ever exist, and any Louis Theroux or David Attenborough documentaries are my fave.
If you'd like to get to know me a little better, head over to my instagram highlighted stories where you will find behind the scenes action of Tilly Roberts Photo, some insight into my personal life and everyday stuff, as well as raves from previous clients etc.
I am available to shoot anything and everything! I am based between the Central West and South Coast of NSW Australia, but I travel absolutely anywhere! I am also available worldwide and am ready to travel to wherever you are located to shoot your session, (including destination weddings)! Please email me so we can have a chat :)

"Tilly is one hell of a chick, we have just received our amazing wedding photos......we could not be happier!!! She captured our day in the most stunning way, her photographs look exactly how we remembered the day......the colourfulness/happiness and emotions of it all captured so perfectly. I can not recommend her highly enough, from the start to the end Tilly is professional and laid back.
Thank you so much for being a part of our story Tilly."

This is me and my amazing love of mine Ryan, who you may see with me at weddings. Not wanting to miss a special moment that could make a great photo on the fridge, and also wanting to share the fun of weddings with someone, I decided to add a permanent second shooter to all my wedding packages.
Ryan is a photographer and videographer by trade, and has a strong professional background in photography. I like to think that it was because of our love of photography that brought us together, as we first met each other in a film photography class at university. Ryan has always been a talented photographer and knows exactly what he's doing, which leaves me to concentrate on my job (which luckily doesn't require me to boss him around... too much).
