These two... My oh my. They were so fun to work with and the constant giggling, smiling and kissing just made this session even better! Photographer's know when two people have mad chemistry and Tyler + Alyssa, you two have it!! I can't wait to shoot with y'all again and just maybe it'll be over on the east coast ;)


"Tyler and I met on my first day of college cheer camp my freshman year at university. He was a quarterback, green eyed and from Texas. I was a cheerleader, blue eyed, and from Ohio. I'm pretty sure I fell in love with him as soon as he said, "hi I'm Tyler". I'll never forget the way he made me laugh the first day I met him; it was like we had known each other forever. 

We decided to the end the night at the Canton-famous Milk and Honey. We shared a coke float, and I was smitten. We stayed "just friends" between flirtations and the occasional hand holding, until October 1st. Our group of friends went to Chicago for a spontaneous weekend getaway. Tyler had stayed back at our friend's house while we visited some local sites, and when I returned to the house my friends directed me to walk down the steps. There was a trail of Hershey kisses leading all the way down the steps and a heart of Hershey kisses at the bottom with a card inside. I opened up the card and it read, "now that I've kissed the ground you walk on, will you please be my girlfriend?" Tyler ran out of nowhere, picked me up, and spun me around as I kissed him! I said yes. 


Our love journey of five and a half years has been amazing. After four years of college, spending every summer apart, moving to South Florida after graduation, landing our dream jobs, we have changed and grown in our own individual ways, as well as as a couple. He has helped me through the loss of several family members, moving away from my family, starting my career, and the many twists and turns life can bring. 


No matter what we go through, we always come out stronger. I love his strength and how dependable he is, how I know I never have to worry because together we will get through anything. He challenges me and keeps me accountable, and gently reminds me to "pray about it" when I'm feeling stressed. The best thing about Tyler is his ability to make me laugh, actually, to make ANYONE laugh. He just has this way about him that people are drawn to, and I am crazy about it! He works so hard in his career in the NHL, and I'm so proud of how passionate he is about sports and his goals. He supports me in my career as a trauma ICU nurse and helps me manage my life on the night shift while he works the day shift. Most importantly he loves his family and he loves God. The best word I could use to describe our relationship is JOY, and I am grateful to God for bringing this joy into my life."

I can't get over the happiness... So much happiness.
Give me alllllll the blurry, intimate moments.
Because seriously though... What's more romantic than dancing on the beach at sunset?
