what is your style?
We love a good mix of natural/candid photos along with posed photos. A good combination of both is how we like to work and feel both are necessary. With two photographers on board, we are able to be in two places at one (ie: getting ready photos) and then at the ceremony we can focus on different perspectives of your day and be doing different things to give you a wider range of images. We love a good laugh and we are renowned for our calm, friendly nature! We ask you to provide a family shot list to us prior to the day so we can ensure all your loved ones are photographed. We leave nothing to chance. We like to feel like your family friend and not just your photographer! We are with you the whole way from the booking, during the wedding and after your wedding.
Where are you based and will you travel?
We are based in Adelaide, South Australia but we also love to travel!
We frequently cover areas all over South Australia.
No travel fee usually applicable in the Adelaide Metro Area.
If you want us to photograph your wedding outside of the Metro area, a travel fee may apply depending on where it takes place to cover travel costs & accommodation if required.
How do we book?
You can either fill in our contact page through our website or email us on email@example.com to get the ball rolling. We are also available on facebook and Instagram and are happy to correspond via social media.
We will ALWAYS respond within 24 hours so if you not hear from us, please check your SPAM or JUNK mail or alternatively call us to chat on either:
0422 572 669 or 0402 353 368
Ideally, we would love to meet you first to ensure we are a great fit for each other! Lets chat over a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and begin our beautiful relationship!
We require a 20% non refundable reservation fee & a signed contract to hold your date. All online based so no printing required!
We are unable to hold your date without these two items in place.
Balance is required to be paid 4 weeks out from the big day giving you plenty of time.
We can offer payment plans in need.
We do not offer afterpay services.
I want you all day!
Ask us! We can custom quote for all your needs.
We can even supply a third photographer if required!
What do you need from us before the wedding day?
We will send you an electronic questionnaire in the lead up to the big day to your email address.
This will give you an opportunity to advise us of all the details of your day including photography shot lists & time lines so we know exactly what is happening on your day. The more detail the better!
We usually will send this out upon booking so you can start thinking about the answers.
We require this back at least one month before your wedding day for our review. Dont panic though - we will send a reminder out as your day approaches.
Timeline Question: When is the best time for our portraits?
Photographers love golden hour, the half hour before and after sunset. It would be absolutely amazing for us, and YOU, to have gorgeous photos taken at this time. Trust us, you will not regret taking time out for these photos.
Please consider scheduling some time out from your reception so we can use the gorgeous last hour of daylight to capture the most stunning bridal portraits.
How many pictures will we receive?
We believe in quality over quantity.
Each package has a MINIMUM number of edited images included both in colour and black and white.
We will never give out RAW files or unedited work. Trust us, you do not want to see a bunch of photos with blinks or double chins. Also, this is not a true representation of our final work. As professional photographers, Teahouse Studios will choose the best and most significant photos to tell your story in full and nothing will be missed.
When will we get our photos?
Initial sneek peek on social media within 48 hours! (subject to your consent of course!)
You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within a maximum 8 weeks (usually less depending on the season we photograph your wedding and if products have been ordered). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints! We do allow you to print your own photos for personal use following delivery.
If you prefer a USB, we can supply a beautifully crafted wooden USB should you want one for a cost of $50.
DO YOU OFFER VIDEOGRAPHY?
Here are Teahouse, we are photographers. However, we have a wonderful network of videographers that we work with on a regular basis should you wish to utilise their services.
Do you offer PRINTS & CUSTOM FRAMING
We sure do & we love it!!
Ask us at any time about creating beautiful wall art or a custom album!
Refer to the Print & Album Package Add-On pricing on our investment page.
Do you work Public Holidays?
Yes, we are happy to work most public holidays/long weekends although as we also like to spend time with our families during these times we can not always guarantee availability. We also charge a 20% holiday fee for long weekends/public holidays and 50% for Easter/Christmas Eve/Christmas Day or New Years Eve/ New Years Day Weddings as time spent away from our families is precious at this time.
Are you same sex friendly?
Absolutely YES!! Love is love.

Why are you called teahouse?
haha - great question! When we decided to combine our two separate individual wedding photography businesses we knew we had to come up with a new name as Limitless Imagery & Natasha Botheras Photographer was a mouthful and difficult for us to grow our business. After doing some searching, and chatting and trying to come up with something meaningful, Teahouse was born. It is a mash up of our names Tash & Sue!!
Teahouse Studios highly recommend that you seek and take out your own wedding insurance to protect yourself. We have seen recently with the fires across Australia recently how important it is to have insurance coverage. Protect your wedding!
