I met Tyler in late 2015 when I worked at a cafe in Inglewood. He didn't work very often, but Fridays quickly became my favourite day, because it meant we got to work together. He was funny, friendly, and had a way of lifting the mood of everyone around him. No one at the cafe disliked Tyler.


We kept in touch after I left and moved to Edmonton, and he was the MC at my wedding.


This summer, he answered my model call and asked if I would consider him and his sweetheart, Marriz. I jumped at the opportunity to meet her, and to catch up.


Photographing these two was so much fun. They are both friendly and warm-hearted and easy to be around, and I am so happy they found one another. I am so happy I got to document their love.
