  • Tyler from Scratch Studios was absolutely amazing! He was super responsive when I first reached out to hire him. Whenever I had questions about the big day, he was incredibly quick to respond, gave his suggestions, and made me feel like he would be there to support me. When time got closer, he included me on the second shooter decision. I felt like I had a say--he made me feel important and that I was comfortable with her style/tone of pictures. Our second shooter was Rebecca Burt. As the day came even closer, it was apparent that he was getting as excited as I was! He assured me over and over again that he would be there to support me, and anything I needed, he was there. We texted the day before, and when he came in, he was smiling and so happy to see everyone. He worked well with our videographers and everyone seemed to get along and throw out ideas. Nothing was off the table, and that's what we wanted. He was so communicative throughout the day, my (now) husband loved him too! ... Read more

  • We had an amazing experience with Tyler as our wedding photographer! I came in completely unprepared without a list of shots or any idea what I wanted for pictures, and he completely directed all the photos and went above and beyond, constantly asking if there was anything he could do to help. I would recommend him to anyone needing a photographer!

  • Tyler and his team were nothing short of spectacular! He and I spent a lot of time communicating about all the types of pictures I wanted on my special day. I will admit my list of pictures was long and I didn’t think it would be possible to get them all done. I don’t know why I had any doubt because Tyler knocked out all of my pictures with time to spare! My husband and I actually got to enjoy cocktail hour! I just couldn’t imagine my day without Tyler being there! He made everything move smoothly and efficiently. He worked so well with my entire bridal team (all 18 of them) and all of the pictures turned out amazing. If you’re looking for someone to capture a couples photo shoot, family photo shoot or any kind of photo shoot in general I will always recommend Tyler!!

  • Tyler was beyond amazing at both our engagement photos and wedding. He immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed at the engagement shoot ( and took some of the cutest candid shots!) he picked unique locations with amazing natural lighting and got our photos back to us quickly. For the wedding he was the calm director that we needed he organized the bridal party quickly and had great ideas for photo shots. He arrived early, found awesome areas to use as backdrops and even stopped traffic to get the perfect shot in a corn field. He is AMAZING, kind and super talented. I highly suggest him if you want an organized day with phenomenal photos!

  • Tyler was an absolute joy to work with! I had worked with Tyler before as a bridesmaid in my sister in law's wedding and every shot was stunning. When my husband and I were planning our wedding, I got admittedly anxious about being the center of a photo session but trusted that Tyler would be able to capture our special day just as we wanted. After voicing our nerves about being photographed and concerns about the length of time we were doing staged photographs during our wedding, Tyler was extremely responsive and comfortable putting our nerves quickly at ease. Our photo's are perfect, which I knew they would be - this is what he's meant to do, but I am most pleased with the experience. Tyler is communicative and clear, he listens and cares about the couple, takes and is able to take direction as needed. He is accommodating and unobtrusive while capturing every moment you wish you could freeze frame time for. Hire him.

  • Tyler is one of the easiest people to work with + his work is absolutely flawless. I hired Tyler after seeing the photos he did for my cousin who was married in July of 2016. I was so impressed by each and every one of them as I flipped through her album. I booked Tyler over a year in advance because I was adamant to have him as our photographer. To begin with, Tyler is very responsive whether it be via text or email. He was always quick to get back to me and able to answer any questions I had from the time I booked him to the days leading up to the big day. Tyler was able to execute our “posed” pictures beautifully making sure that they still seemed natural and were true to our personalities. His feedback, encouragement and guidance helped up get the best pictures. He is so much fun to have at the wedding because you can tell he genuinely cares about the couple he is working with-- he was always there to capture the big moments throughout the night. If you are looking for a p... Read more

  • I found Tyler on instagram and I instantly fell for his editing style. I reached out and he responded very quickly. I explained how I had a wedding last year but most of our pictures were in a venue and I wanted some scenic views of us in our wedding outfits. He was SO excited which made me even more excited. My husband and I are naturally uncomfortable people but Tyler made us feel as though we were being photographed by family. He is professional, polite, respectful, hilarious and sweet. He kept an eye on the weather and reached out letting us know if it's too cold we could reschedule. He was very flexible and a trooper taking our pictures in the freezing cold! He got to our spot an hour or so earlier to scope out the area and find good places to take pictures which I am so grateful he did, saved us a lot of time and he picked some great spots. I could tell he loved his job which made me so glad to have picked him. When you love your work it shows! He got our pictures done in record ... Read more

  • Tyler was beyond amazing!! I knew several people that used Tyler and were so happy with his work, and friend of mine knew Tyler personally so I reached out. Anything we could possibly need he did it. He traveled from nyc to shoot our wedding on 10/28/17. Communicating with him was too easy, he answered every email and text promptly. During our reception it was like he was one of our guest, making me feel so comfortable and not like I had a camera in my face. My husband hates pics and type made it quick and painless for him!! He got our edited photos back to us so quickly and any additional editing I needed he was willing. Any chance that I need formal pics again, hands down Tyler will be my go to

  • From the beginning of my wedding experience, I was certain that Tyler would be the person to capture this lifelong moment. I knew that I could trust him with providing the best visuals. I knew that I could depend on his energy to be sincere, calming & pleasant. I knew that he would care about the tiniest detail with expertise and excellence. I knew that regardless of any stress that came on that day, Tyler would be the calm in the space. I knew that each pose he presented would convey the intensity of the love between my husband & I. I knew that he would deliver me quality images that would bring out every bit of emotion that a bride wants to feel... SHEER JOY. Tyler is flawless with his gift behind the lenses and I could speak on his phenomenal talents forever. He’s not only amazing at what he does but he truly is a gem of a person overall. His heart is as great as his work. You would be terribly disappointed with yourself if you don’t book his talent for your special day.

  • Tyler was fantastic to work with! From the beginning, he was great at communicating, asking what all we were looking for in photos, kept us updated with timeline as we counted down to wedding day, etc. Day of wedding, he was on time where we asked him to be and full of energy! He made sure he captured all the photos we asked, plus many more we did not think of but absolutely loved! We got photos back very quickly and he kept in touch whole time from editing, to sending, to making sure we got them and loved them. Even went above and beyond and told us to let him know if there were any we would like edited a different way. Will Highly recommend Tyler to all friends and family for any photography needs!

  • Wow, I couldn't be later with writing this, but boy does time fly after you get married! Tyler did our engagement photo session (which turned out absolutely beautiful) and then captured our wedding in September. When I say captured, I mean he really was able to portray every detail, feeling, mood, that happened that day and in the most special way for us. Not only are his pictures stunning, but he is incredible to work with. He is extremely professional, but funny and relaxed at the same time. He made taking all of those wedding photos fun and painless! Thank you again Tyler!

  • Review Tyler Lyons Photography?? Where do I begin?! I honestly could go on and on about why Tyler is everything a bride and groom are looking for in a wedding photographer. First of all, Tyler has his bachelor's degree in the field as well as years of experience. With this combination he understands both the textbook side of photography as well as the social side. This is HUGE. Tyler is also always seeking ways to improve his abilities, provide more options for this clients, and stay up to date on the latest trends and technology. I've never seen someone so excited over a new lens! Second, Tyler's interpersonal skills are fantastic. He understands what a wedding day means to each person in the room and is so great at handling the different personalities that come into play when hosting an event. I'm telling you this guy is venue approved, wedding coordinator approved, mother/mother in law approved, shy little flower girls approved, camera shy guests approved, rambunctious and very cam...

  • It was an absolute pleasure to work alongside Tyler of Scratch Studios recently at a wedding we coordinated. Tyler's personality creates a calm in the room and brings ease to everyone around him, this is an incredibly important quality for a wedding photographer when sometimes the nerves in the room are high. Tyler had fun with the clients, allowing them to themselves for all of the photos and making sure that everyone felt involved and happy with the results. Most important the quality of Tyler's work is exceptional and he truly knows how to capture the essence of a couple, their friends and family and most exciting wedding day. He will be our first recommendation for a wedding photographer from now on!

  • Tyler was so fun to work with. He traveled all the way from NYC to come down to Maryland TWICE to shoot, not only my wedding, but also for my engagement photos in the cold weather (haha because I wanted snow pictures). The photo shoot was so much fun and he was so professional in getting the right captured photos. He was always in contact with me so everyone was on the same page and he edited all the photos I wanted in such an exponential amount of time. He is truly working for his clients and works well with other vendors. And for only having him do my wedding as a solo photographer, he took so many photos! If I had to change anything I would just have been more firm on what pictures you want before the wedding day because it gets to crazy and busy you don't have time to think about the photos you want that day. But the day just goes by so fast and we were on a time crunch for daylight and time, it was hard to get all the photos done and still enjoy the day. Several people at my wedd... Read more
