Tyler is an INCREDIBLE teacher and I can honestly say he has become one of the most influential persons in my career as a wedding photojournalist.

What I love about learning from Tyler is that he's real and not a "fluffer". He's honest, even when you don't want to hear it. He WANTS you to be better and to learn. Not only did Tyler change my whole perspective on photography, he truly changed my perspective on life, and I will be forever grateful.

Honestly, I can't even tell you how much you need this if you are serious about true documentary wedding photography and learning. Learn from the best.

I’ve always wanted to photograph weddings in the way that Tyler teaches, but I had no idea HOW. Holy smacks, this course breaks it down for you, and Tyler speaks to you so that you GET IT. He is a no stones left unturned, shares way more than I had expected, answers questions completely and fully, yet is tough and honest - which is incredible.

Tyler’s raw honesty and commitment to moment-driven photography are unparalleled. I won’t lie, it is hard to please Tyler photographically, but when you do you can truly feel proud of yourself. Tyler can produce great images with solid composition and compelling storytelling in any circumstances and with any camera and he expects the same outcome from his students. He taught me how to stop relying on visual gimmicks for my photography and instead focus on the connection that will produce honest and real images.
