As a Photo and Cinema Team, we focus on a High-end Documentary style. This means less cheesy poses and more candid moments. Playing with light and shadows, the details and architecture. We want to not only capture your love, your emotions and your connection, but also the atmosphere of the celebrations. Your guests enjoying their time, the gorgeous floral installations and minimalistic details.
Being photographed can be uncomfortable, so we offer complementary engagement sessions with all our packages. This allows us time to get to know you two as a couple and the best way to show your love. We encourage you to take this session as a chance to photograph an activity. Let us show you how we take a documentary approach to capturing the beautiful mundane and big moments.
We believe in raw emotion, wild love and celebrations that were created with intention.
We love to bring a artistic vision for your wedding when photographing and filming. Playing with light and movement, details and candid moments. Telling a story in the most beautiful way and working through prompts to create beautiful natural portraits.
We know most people aren't used to being in front of a camera and it is our job to make you feel so comfortable and natural.
If you want a power team for your wedding day Tyra and Braylan will blow your expectations right out of the water! Tyra was so accommodating booking our engagement shoot, and when we had coffee she was so invested and listening to every detail I spewed to her. The day of our wedding it was raining steady, not exactly what you want to see when you’ve dreamed of an outdoor wedding, but Tyra and Braylan took everything in stride and even made a pit stop to find clear umbrellas for us. The details and memories they captured of our day are absolutely incredible and we will cherish them forever! I’ve had so many comments about our teaser film and all our pictures being so beautiful (and by golly I definitely cannot disagree), Tyra and Braylan captured moments that make you relive them when you look at the photos and video! We are so thankful to have had Tyra and Braylan capture such special memories for us, they are worth their weight in gold

Where to begin! When I started thinking about what to write about Tyra and Braylan the first things that came to mind were strictly their personality and character. I mean... their work honestly speaks for itself!
Throughout the wedding day they were both by our side the whole day doing anything and everything we needed, they were a calming presence, they pinned on boutonnieres, grabbed photos of uncooperative kids, and captured memories in a way I couldn’t even fathom. I didn’t even know it was possible to look at a photo and be taken right back to a moment, but there is something in how they do what they do that is incredibly special. Even our teaser video made me feel more feels than the actual wedding day! How is that possible?!

I want to explain how it is to feel the moments over again. To know what my heart felt the day I was married to my sweetheart. We wanted to have memories we could look back on to remind us how our beautiful day, and in our case a few days (due to the health crisis going on) were, and our photos and video brought every butterfly back. We were introduced to Tyra and Braylan Ekland when we decided to have engagement photos.
The engagement photos were amazing and the way our love was captured is phenomenal.
We opted to also have a video taken and we truly didn’t know how it would turn out. I’m here to say that I tear up every time I see it. The emotions are pounding in my chest every time I relive those special days. I honestly don’t think my own memories would have captured the events as well as Tyra and Braylan have in their videos and there’s still photos.
So my advise to anyone interested, if you want the same lump in your throat, the same tear jerking moments and the same heart skip a beat memories. To have the exact same experience you had on your amazing day. I would suggest you inquire with Tyra E Photography & Film. I would go on to say the experience was very great and enjoyable experience.
If you are on the fence about getting a video all I can say is DO IT! The day we got our gallery sent to us, all I could think while looking through all the photos is I am so grateful I got a video. Knowing every picture I looked at would come to life in a video made me so excited to watch it! The video was absolutely perfect and I could not hold back the tears! Everyone that has seen our video has told me they cried and could feel the love and happiness. I am so, so thankful for Tyra and Braylan and will continue to use them and recommend them!! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!"
Tyra and Braylan were absolutely amazing. They photographed our Joshua Tree 1 year anniversary photos, and I AM BLOWN AWAY! We were so comfortable around them and had a blast. When we got the photos back I actually cried. I've always wanted photos like this and these were more than I could have ever asked for. They have an eye for amazing lighting, knowing how to get authentic laughter and complementary angles. 10/10 recommend hiring them!!!
Tyra is an outstanding photographer! She is a wiz at flattering angles and lighting, she creates such a comfortable presence that you honestly feel like you two are lifelong friends and somehow she never fails to capture the natural beauty of any individual. I can assure you you will not leave the shoot feeling unsatisfied with the experience or quality. She goes above and beyond for each and every client! If something is not working for you, or if you had a vision, she will make it happen.
I love the outdoors! You can find me snowmobiling, snowboarding and snow shoeing in the winter near Tumbler Ridge, and hiking, traveling and videoing in the summer. (Lets be honest our summer is full time weddings lol). My winters consist of our second business of Heavy Duty Contracting and renovating our little fixer upper home. In summer I am full time shooting and filming weddings with Tyra and going camping and editing by a campfire any chance we get.
We travel the world a few times a year if work allows and I don't think that will ever change. I am also born and raised in Fort St. John.
I love to laugh, I will most likely cry as you walk down the aisle, and I love my puppy! Basically, I am a romantic with an avid love for adventure, whether that is traveling the world or hiking a mountain, the beauty of this earth always amazes me! Most days you will find me in my office editing and emailing clients, but we always make time to get outside and enjoy it on a lake, or mountain or by a fire. If we ever have a "day off" we will be exploring a new part of our province with our dog and cameras. If you want epic locations, we have probably found them! I am born and raised in my beautiful small home town of Fort St. John so I know the area like the back of my hand.
Fun Fact: I have learnt Videography along side Braylan and am actually the lead editor for all our wedding films! I often shoot some of the video on the day of your wedding if Braylan is busy getting shots of the groom in the morning and there is a moment needed of the bride as well! Having a photo video team allows us to interchange if needed to never miss a moment!
Traveling is a priority in our lives, and the incredible people we have met while traveling has been life changing! Whether you are wanting to travel to the mountains or across the world, we would love to be a part of it!
We take two destination weddings a year at a heavily discounted rate. Definitely reach out if you're interested in photography and videography at your stunning destination wedding.
