Tess Godkin Photographer

Tess will travel to most parts of NSW and the ACT and likes to work with people that are looking for much more than assembly line photography and ordinary albums and prints. Tess will provide her clients with beautiful images and boutique products that tell an amazing story and exceed their expectations.
