Call it a lifelong love affair. Since she can recall, Shyla Marie has been entranced by the lens— and by what lies beyond it. Blending precision and artistry, meticulousness and happenstance, she creates images that illustrate life at its best: a groom’s first glance at his bride; her peering up through a sunlit veil; a girl entangled in the hem of her mother’s dress.
With four children of her own, Shyla Marie is rooted in the philosophy that candid is best—that life happens in the moments when you aren’t watching, but the camera is. And as a part-time songwriter, she believes that photographs can evoke emotion much like music: a portrait can be a poem; a snapshot can carry a melody. A framed image in the stairwell can whisper of happy days gone by.
It’s this artistic, nuanced approach that defines Shyla Marie’s work, making her the photographer of choice for countless couples and families—ones who often turn to Shyla Marie for their wedding, then continue to collaborate with her as their family grows.
Camera in hand, she captures their most beautiful, fleeting moments to tell a unique and lasting story—no wonder she’s so in love with her craft.
