C. Tyson Photography
I am Christopher Tyson and I am a Husband and a Father. I love my family more than I could ever describe in words. Everyday I am reminded afresh how important they are and how I would be lost without them. But if there is one thing you need to know about me, it is this. I am not your parents wedding photographer. When I am looking through the viewfinder on my camera, I do not just document what takes place, I tell a story. I tell your story.
It comes back to relationships. Support the local companies and you will have no choice but to develop many incredible friendships from those in the Rockford area. You may be able to purchase something not locally but you will be missing out on some amazing people in the area.
Every professional photographer started out as an amateur photographer first. The difference is how they transitioned to a pro. My transition was a very deliberate one while I was running on treadmill and make the choice to stop working for others and to start working for my family.
