  • Tyler was amazing from start to finish. His personality, energy, and ability to capture moments so beautifully while keeping the schedule for the day moving fluidly are all just a small fraction of what makes him the absolute best decision we made! He was super organized and communicative, and his extensive experience helped make our day run so smoothly. He was great with keeping the group family shots moving, and maintained a positive and fun attitude throughout, even on our extremely hot, 100 degrees in the shade day. His assistant Daquan was also extremely talented and provided even more amazing photos of our day, from different perspectives and angles which made them even more fun to go through, and even more difficult to choose our favorites! I would 100% recommend Tyler at Scratch Studios. In fact, he's already been hired to photograph my sister's wedding next spring! From top to bottom, the most professional, talented, and overall wonderful photographer!!

  • When my husband and I started to look for photographers, we knew we wanted someone who could capture the genuine emotions and candid moments of our big day, because we felt like we could be stiff and awkward in front of a camera. As we scrolled through Tyler's works, we both fell instantly in love with his photos, editing style, and most of all, his ability to capture "the moment" full of emotion and story! In working with Tyler, we find him to be very professional, flexible, and patient. He gives great directions, which lessened our awkwardness and made us feel comfortable to be ourselves. Tyler was very flexible. The day of, we threw him a curve ball and told him we felt like we needed to walk around to the 18 tables and take pictures with everyone. Tyler took it like a champ (had to delay his own dinner) and helped us to move around the tables quickly and easily, making sure we didn't get caught up too long at any one table so that we could still enjoy the wedding.

  • This wedding was the first for oldest (daughter) of my three children. For many years, and up through the planning phase, I held a firm position that photographers - especially wedding photographers - are grossly over-priced and can be replaced with services and/or favors from friends and family with decent results. Tyler blew that position out of the water!! His work is spectacular. It’s professional. It’s very high quality. He captured scenes that bring the wedding back to life. He also has a pleasant demeanor that makes for s comfortable working relationship. His work was not only worth it but I consider it a bargain.

  • I have the pleasure of seeing Tyler’s work with my a lot of my friends’ weddings and knew, the moment I got engaged, that I wanted him to do my wedding. He has a way of making people feel comfortable and natural, even during the awkward staged wedding photos. Tyler communicates with the bride/groom, bridal party, friends, family, and venue staff with such professionalism. He captures the most precious/special moments of your biggest day without being distracting. The moment Tyler arrived at the venue, my stressed level drastically decreased because I knew he’d be there to help guide our group through each phase of the day. His ideas for poses, knowledge of optimal lighting/backdrops, and passion for capturing intimate moments is unmatched. Tyler is an absolute master behind the lens and I am so grateful we were lucky enough to have him on our big day. We also got our pictures back about a week or so after the wedding, which is insane!!

  • Tyler was the most professional and most pleasant vendor we worked with for our wedding. His work speaks for itself, so what I will further comment on is Tyler himself. He put everyone at ease. His presence was calming and uplifting. He was there for and captured every moment, but wasn't intrusive. During formal group photos, he was directive and efficient without being the least bit bossy or rude. He made a plan with us ahead of time, and he made it happen ahead of schedule. We are in love with the photos from our wedding, and we can't thank Tyler enough!!

  • Nick and Christie were amazing photographers to work with and the kind of people you'd want around on your wedding day. I felt very comfortable with them there and they were very flexible and fun to work with. Even though they hadn't been to our venue before they scoped out a location for couple portraits I never would have thought of and those are my favorite photos of my husband and I! Tyler did an amazing job editing the photos and got us them back in 2 weeks! They were all very responsive and followed through on all of our requests. I'd definitely recommend!

  • I would 100% recommend Tyler! He was amazing to work with and my pictures turned out better than I could have imagined! He was very flexible for the day of my wedding and captured everything I would have wanted him to. He was also great at getting my rowdy wedding party organized for all of our pictures after the ceremony :) What I especially loved was the quick turn around getting all of our wedding pictures back!

  • We were lucky enough to come across Tyler and Scratch Studios’ portfolio prior to our wedding. We decided to do an engagement shoot (highly recommend!) and were blown away. He has wonderful vision and is truly gifted at nailing the technical details for a great shot. He does all this while creating a comfortable relaxed environment that lends itself to capturing natural moments. We were extra lucky to have Taylor join Tyler as the second photographer for our wedding and couldn't be happier. Taylor is equally gifted and they make a great creative team! They did an amazing job of not distracting from the wedding while capturing all of the moments of the evening and shots we had requested. Highly recommend!

  • We are so glad to have had Tyler photograph our wedding! He did a great job of providing direction during the formal photo shoot but kept the mood light and fun. We wanted to stay away from the cheesier shots and he struck a great balance of the more traditional poses with plenty of casual, fun stuff mixed in as well. Thank you so much Tyler!!!

  • I found Tyler through Instagram posts. I went through at least 200 photographer’s profiles. Tyler was our top choice. We love the color of his pictures and the artistry and perspective is just amazing. We were also looking for someone who has experiences taking pictures for gay couples. And we were extremely happy with the result!!

  • I found Tyler through the wedding wire. Tyler stays calm and collected even as the stress of the day arrives. He was incredibly easy to work with and very communicative. He answered questions quickly via email and did not mind hopping on the phone with me. A shot list was helpful and made the time for photos very efficient. Tyler captures photos in the moment as well as those that we requested. He is quick and makes you feel good and natural, although I would not have minded a little coaching (if I was not standing straight, or it wasn't my best angle!). I received the album within two weeks! I mean, how's that for on top of his game?!

  • I booked Tyler without ever meeting him, but I had fallen in love with his work. He captured my engagement perfectly, we were blown away!! He got to the shoot site early and helped set up the rooftop perfectly, placing flowers and other items in the perfect position to capture the best lighting for the shoot. His ability to capture the raw emotions of the day was really what set him apart from any other photographer I have ever worked with. Highly recommend!!

  • Photographing with Tyler was an incredible experience! I was recommended Scratch Studios by a friend and her mother, and my husband and I found his aesthetic style to be exactly what we were looking for. He was accommodating, professional, and a hit with the family members – he exuded just the right amount of warmth and tact to impart a sense of urgency to the crowd and to get all the photographs done in a timely fashion. Tyler was great on communication despite all of our busy work schedules, so my husband and I always felt we had a grasp of what to expect, and there were no surprises with payments or file delivery. We are so happy with the photographs and hopefully, we’ll have a chance to work with him again one of our friends’ wedding!

  • I was recently a bridesmaid in a wedding that Tyler/Scratch Studios had been hired to shoot. It was an absolute joy working with Tyler. The photos came out beautifully and it is clear he is well seasoned is his field. We received clear directions from him and were surprised at how quickly Tyler captured everything he needed (huge win for everyone in dresses on a cold day!). On top of his talent Tyler was warm, communicated well and added to our day with a fun, calm and often funny demeanor. He made sure our bride was happy and it was clear he established what she (the bride) wanted out of her wedding photos before the day of so she wasn’t worried on her big day and could enjoy herself. Would highly recommend Tyler & Scratch Studios

  • Tyler from Scratch Studios was absolutely everything we could have imagined and wished for on our special day! He helped make us feel calm and casual during the photos which definitely lends to the natural love captured in each shot. He recommended that we do a “First Look” and I am so glad that we took his advice. It gave us that moment alone to really take one another in before our ceremony and helped get a little bit of the jitters out. The first look photos are breathtaking as well and captured a moment we will cherish forever. Tyler was professional, friendly, and made everyone feel like a superstar, especially us. I can’t recommend Scratch Studios enough!
