Hi I'm Tyler

I live in Arizona, I'm a professional Photographer and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Im 26 years old and living in Snowflake AZ with my Beautiful wife. We meet in Utah while I was attending school to become a Photographer. Since then we relocated to Snowflake and live and work here. I love taking pictures of people, especially portraits. I love seeing all the details the face has to offer. Weather it is an old or young face each one has a story to tell. I would love to travel the world taking pictures of the people I meet..... maybe some day!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Small town that was established by Mormons. Most of the people I knew where Mormon including my family. As with most families the children are taught to believe what their parents believe. That was no different in my home. Growing up I relied on my parents beliefs. In our church when a young man turns 19 he is asked to serve a "mission". I mission means that you agree to go and live where ever the church asks for two years and teach the people there about our beliefs. When I turned 19 I was asked to go to New Jersey. It was while in New Jersey serving for my church that I gained my own testimony. This was the first time in my life that I was put in a postion where I really had to know my beliefs. I spend hours everyday studying our church and its doctrine. Not only that but New Jersey is full of people from all over the world. I had never had such a chance to see what other people believed. This was also the first time that I had been presented with so many other belief systems. While a missionary I went to different churches I even taught at a few of them. I dont have a day or an hour when I knew what I felt was right. But there is no doubt in my mind that I have chosen the correct path. I has spent many hours in pray and have never had doubts about the reality of the savior and the truth of this church. I am a Mormon because I have studied other faiths and I have studied mine. To me the mormon church makes the most since. All the dots connect.

How I live my faith

Living ones faith isnt always easy. Im learning and getting better. The big things are easy for me... loving my wife, being honest, going to church, helping people. I think that doing all the big things and then working each day at being better at the small things is the best way I can and try to live my faith. In my ward I serve as a Ward Clerk. Its my job to make sure all the records are right and keep track of what everyone else is doing in the ward. I also get to watch for new faces each week so I can introduce myself to knew people. I am also a volunteer photographer for the church. I send in Pictures for the church to use in their publications.
