I care immensely about creating excellent photographs for you. I mean, that's why you hired me, and I will deliver the photos of your dreams to you. I care deeply about you and your wedding and strive to get to know you, make you feel heard and cared for, making sure you look and feel your best in photos, and create an atmosphere of peace and encouragement on your wedding day. I strive to make photos a fun, memorable, joyful part of your wedding and not just "something obligatory to get through." I am deeply passionate about wedding photography because it immortalizes pieces of beauty, goodness, and truth that you will carry with you for the rest of your life when you look back at your photos: that you are are undeniably LOVED.

We will recommend Tyrie to anyone and everyone we know in a heartbeat. Hiring her as our photographer was the best decisions we made for our wedding, and we would make that decision again. Tyrie, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a constant encouragement, cheerleader, planner extraordinaire, and giving us 900+ photos we will cherish for a lifetime.

Everyone needs Tyrie as their photographer!! She’s not only helpful in the planning process (has a schedule, asks good questions, gives ideas) but she also makes everything so easy on the day of. I was stress free on my wedding day and a lot of that was due to her ability to keep things calm and be on top of everything! Not to mention the pictures turned out absolutely beautiful.
