Meet The Girls

Welcome to Verge Studio!

Our highly skilled, all-female team of Photographers & Stylists are personally trained by Kate & Megan to exceed the very highest standards.

We feel very strongly about empowering women, so one of our main specialties is Boudoir Photography!

“I love helping our clients learn to honestly love & appreciate themselves. I get the chance to show them what makes them beautiful. How amazing is that!” (Kate)


Meet Kate…

Originally from England, Founder & Photographer Kate Sanders-Tye has been immersed in the photographic industry since age 14, gaining numerous qualifications, and working across the globe from The UK to Europe, to Asia, and then settling down with her own family here in Australia. Now a world-class photographer, mother of two, and the Director of Verge Studio, Kate is inspired by each individual’s Unique Journey, and is driven by her passion for creative photography!

Kate has over 20 years’ experience in the photographic industry, but it was overcoming her battle with Stage 3 Lymphoma that helped her realise how much she truly wanted to help women capture their natural beauty.

She is now honoured to be one of the most highly regarded Photographers in Perth, and over the years, has developed her own unique brand of Boudoir Photography.

“I chose the name Verge, because it means ‘On The Edge’. This has so many meanings for me. My entire life has been on the edge, and I try to keep my photographic work edgy!” (Kate)


Meet Megan…

Stylist & Wedding Coordinator, Megan Ziersch, is a home-grown Perth girl. After travelling to study in Canada, Megan returned to Perth, equipped with an Arts degree, and certifications in dance & performance. Megan has since been mentored by Kate to become a Stylist of International standards.

“I love being involved during a shoot. I get to use my knowledge of body movement to demonstrate a pose, so that we can achieve the most comfortable & flattering images for the client!” (Megan)

After her own wedding in 2008, Megan has also developed an intense passion for all things Wedding, and loves working alongside clients to create beautiful artwork, & help their vision come to fruition!


The Verge Story…

Kate & Megan first met in early 2009, and quickly became close friends. Their instant connection catapulted Verge Studio to a whole new level! They form a vibrant & dynamic team, where every day is energetic & exciting, creativity is limitless…and nothing is ever considered ‘Ordinary’!

Since Verge Studio’s official launch in 2009, the girls have expanded their team!

In addition to their bubbly, enthusiastic & encouraging personalities, each member of the Verge team has had first-hand experience in front of the camera, during their very own Verge Photo Shoot. This is how everyone in the Verge family is able to make your experience as comfortable & as easy as possible; Achieving the most incredible imagery for YOU!

Several years along the path, the Verge Girls are still just as passionate as ever (and even more!) about creating beautiful, unique & life-changing images!!
