the truth...

And guess what...I am so glad I did!

I dabbled in photography in college but sold my camera gear my senior year to pay for our wedding photos. I was getting a “big-girl-job” and having images from my wedding day meant so much more to me than a current hobby.

"MY WEDDING DAY IMAGES

were worth the sacrifice of something special to me."

These moments are dearest to my heart. And now, I am back! Camera in hand. Living my purpose of capturing images that will matter most to our couples.

That decision allowed me to have images that I can live through! Moments of me crying as my father walked me down the aisle, images of Gabe looking at me (in a way I would never want to forget) as he gently held my hands, and the joy of our friends and family as they celebrated our big day.

And seven years later, my all-time favorite...the look on our little girls’ faces as they point at our wall and say “mommy! You look so pretty in your wedding dress!”

OUR STORY...

He danced his way into my heart…

Now! We are loving marriage (no ball and chain here). You will currently find us planning our bucket list adventures, having weekly date nights and pursuing our dreams. 

literally (we met out dancing).

But the truth that I love holding over his head…I asked him! He had spotted me across the room and as my college self would tell you, “he made eyes” at me…ya know the kind that says, “HEY GIRL! You look pretty cute.” For some crazy reason (outside my normal comfort zone) that gave me confidence to joyfully approached him!

From there on it was me cheering him on at his college football games, weekend movie nights and eating Mike and Ikes. Fast forward to my college graduation night, we walked out to my mailbox and to my surprise was a heirloom wedding ring box and single stemmed rose waiting inside.

Beyond our photography skills we have a heart for serving and a passion for marriage. 

We love getting hugs, high fives and knowing that we felt more like friends than photographers when we leave a wedding day. There is nothing that brings more joy to us then receiving a text from our couples (before they have even seen their images), thanking us again and sharing that they just loved having us as part of their big day! Creating an experience that is genuine, memorable and one that leaves our couples knowing they were truly cared for is our purpose. 

It is not just about beautiful images with us

We booked Tialyn & Gabe for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our choice! From beginning to end, Tialyn and her husband demonstrated all of the positive qualities you could possibly want in a professional photographer -they were detail-oriented, organized, flexible, reliable, and passionate. As a bonus, they are both utterly genuine, wonderful human beings. Working with them was an incredibly smooth experience from beginning to end! Thank you so much, Tialyn and Gabe!

“Working with them was an incredibly smooth experience from beginning to end”

From the moment we met with Tia months before the wedding all the way to our big day and beyond Tia made sure everything was in order so that we had a stress-free day! Wedding photography is definitely a big expense for your big day, but Tialyn was worth every penny; we would choose them over and over again. They are timely, prepared, kind, thoughtful, funny, and definitely know how to roll with it when unexpected events pop up throughout the day. And did I mention she will make you feel like a princess??

- Melissa & Tommy

“The BEST investment choice we made for our wedding day!”

Tia was the best decision we made for our wedding day. Not only does she do amazing work on your wedding day, but she also does amazing work on engagement sessions. Both sets (our engagement and wedding) of pictures turned out amazing! Tia is thorough when it comes to your wedding. She will make sure everything you want gets captured and then some. My husband and I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, kind, funny and genuine person to take pictures of our special day. We love Tia and would choose her for our photographer over and over again.

- Amanda & Ryan

“Tia is worth every penny we spent to have her photograph our wedding.”

Tialyn is extremely professional and has an amazing way of making you feel very relaxed and comfortable during photos. I’m in love with every photo she produces as she has a great eye for photography. I would choose her over and over again!

- Carissa & Freddie

“She has an amazing way of making you feel very relaxed and comfortable during photos”

Our pictures are beautiful and we couldn't be happier. You can tell that she loves what she does because she will go above and beyond for you just to make sure you get those "oh my goodness" shots! I would recommend Tialyn to anyone who is looking for someone to capture all of the amazing moments and details of the best day of their lives.

- Garret & Siara

“She will go above and beyond for you”

She gave so much help and support throughout our engagement. I could text or email her any questions and she always had the answer. And she was very organized. Caring about our visions, and she arranged our timeline and worked with everyone to get us all on the same schedule. This was a huge stress reliever for me.
