Their eyes locked with tenderness and devotion

Capturing Love's Essence as a Wedding Photographer in Pittsburgh pa.

Bathed in sunset's glow, Sarah and Michael exchanged vows in a garden filled with love...

...with my camera in hand, I immersed myself in the intimate setting of an outdoor wedding, ready to capture the magic. In that serene moment, I focused on the bride's radiant smile and the unwavering gaze she shared with her husband-to-be as she was surrounded by family and friends.

Their eyes locked, brimming with tenderness and devotion, as if time stood still. There I stood about 20 feet away, waiting for the bride to look up at her handsome prince. After a few seconds, she looked up and I captured the above image. It was a photograph that encapsulated a love story, a single frame that would always remind me why I love what I do as a 17 year Pittsburgh wedding photographer and videographer.

It's not just a job; it's a privilege to freeze those precious moments in time, creating memories that last a lifetime."

Mark was a fantastic and professional videographer. His prices are extremely reasonable and you receive a great quality video. The turnaround time on the video was quick too! My husband and I are very pleased with how the entire video turned out as well as the shorter video that made it easy to share with friends and family! I would highly recommend.

Mark did an amazing job with our wedding day video! The day flies by so quickly and you don't get to see every detail that you spent months planning out. Watching our video brings us back to our wedding day and the emotions of marrying my best friend. Mark did a phenomenal job videoing all the special details of our wedding day. We invested in both the highlight and full length video. I am so thankful we chose Mark as our wedding day videographer! If you are considering videography, it is worth the investment. I was on the fence if it was a must have, but it is one of my favorite memories. We can relive our wedding day forever watching it as it happened. The quality and sound of the video are outstanding.

Mark went above and beyond with both customer service and quality of work! He was so easy to communicate with right from the beginning. He took the time to get to know us so that he could perfectly capture all the sweet moments of our day in our highlight video. The highlight video still makes us cry every time... he got right to the heart of the meaning of our day and beautifully incorporated those we love. Not only did he provide quality work, but he did so very quickly! Mark was so kind to work with and he worked within our budget, which we also greatly appreciated. Thank you Mark!!!

I absolutely loved our experience with TYL Video. I originally found them through an ad on Facebook and spoke with Mark regarding their services. After checking out the website and considering all the items offered for the different packages I convinced my husband how much this company included for the pricing. I actually booked with them during a special so there was even a discount. I really loved how much was included in the different packages and all the things you could add on. I was so excited at the option to put your video on a USB so in case something happens to the DVD/Bluray. But most of all he was just great throughout the whole process and was always more than happy to answer my questions. And there was actually an issue with our DJ and our first dance in which it kept skipping and the song had to be cut short. I was very nervous to watch this part of the video as we were both still very upset with the DJ about this issue; but we were both pleasantly surprised to find that Mark had pieced the video together and added the whole song so if you were not at the reception you would never have known there had been any problems. We are so grateful for this, and the rest of the video was also great. I would recommend this company in a heartbeat.
