Levi-23 months (Left us for Heaven in 2019). Our second born Leo (4) & my youngest Lex (2)

Hi, I’m Tanya Strauss

I am a South African girl living the Aussie Dream in Bendigo, Victoria.

I am an energetic, loudmouth, passionate Wedding and Lifestyle photographer.

I believe in love stories, and do think each person is destined to meet, fall in love and do life with one other person!

I am a timekeeper.

I get to freeze time by capturing moments.

I seek adventure, emotion, and authenticity.

I live to capture this chapter of your story.

Messy, real, authentic moments excite me. Whether it’s newborn cuddles or the moment your Mom zips up your wedding dress. If there’s emotion,

I am excited to capture this treasured moment for you.

We adore our three boys.

Leo our little lion (4 years) and Lex our youngest cub (2 year). I am a wife to sexy hubby Johann Strauss. I am also an Angel Mamma to Levi, our eldest son who passed away in 2018.

We recently moved to Bendigo, Victoria and love the picturesque landscapes around us.  If I’m not capturing a wedding during the weekend, you will find us exploring, on our tinny or doing something adventurous with our family and friends.

Please to meet you.

My Journey

I AM EXACTLY WHERE I AM DESTINED TO BE

My journey as a creative started in 2009 at the University of Pretoria, South Africa.

I completed a 4-year BA/ Information Design (Graphic design) degree.

This course covered a broad spectrum of creative fields including Photography, Illustration, Animation and Design.

After completing my course in 2012 I worked as a graphic designer for a year but soon realised that my passion for photography burned deep. I grew up in a home with Mom owning her own photography film studio.

I took the plunge in 2014 and started working on my own dream: Tanya Strauss Photography.

We immigrated to Australia in 2022 and love the possibilities that this country offers to us and our children.

God-driven Woman!

i believe that there is a precise path for your life

I am blessed with the best husband who supports, loves and encourages me with every creative endeavour I pursue.

I have endured immense heartache losing a child and gained new perspective on the price of health.

 

I understand that sometimes bad things happen to good people.I have learned to trust God, and to believe that everything does happen for a reason.

I do hope it is in the stars for us to grab a cuppa and discuss your wedding plans or even your family shoot.
