We first crossed paths in 8th grade English class. After 22 years of weaving in and out of each other's lives throughout high school, college, and even adult life, we finally found each other. Ultimately, it was the love of photography that brought us together. Below is each other's story, as told by the other..We are Rob + Deanna, a husband & wife wedding photography team based in Memphis, TN. We love one another passionately, and we put every ounce of that love and passion into what we do. From the moment you begin planning your wedding day to the excitement of welcoming your first born, we capture your life's most joyful and treasured moments.
Rob, by Deanna
He is the most passionate person I have ever met. It doesn't matter what he is doing....whether it's spending time with our girls, creating a delicious dinner from scratch (which he does every evening), playing piano or guitar, hanging out with friends, cuddling with me, playing a round of golf, or capturing a client's special day... he puts every ounce of his soul into it. He chases life with vigor, and believes deeply in the power of love.
Rob's love affair with photography began in 1998 while working in the 1-hour lab at Fox Photo. After years of shooting as a hobby, in 2009, he decided to take a leap of faith and start Rob Lyons Photography. He quickly became one of the top wedding photographers in the Mid-south.
I don't know anyone better to capture love than a man who believes so wholeheartedly in it. He frequently responds, "living the dream!" when asked how life is going...and he means it. Every wedding he attends excites and invigorates his soul. I have no doubts that capture love is what he was born to do.
Deanna, by Rob
Her laugh. The first thing I remember about Deanna when we were 14, is her laugh. Followed by her green "Jansport" backpack. My favorite thing about her is her "joy." She has so much of it that people can't help but smile when around her.
Oh yeah, this is a photography bio... Deanna got her start in photography in high school. She later took that drive and turned it into a photography degree from the University of Memphis. After realizing her passion with newborns took affect, she sky rocketed herself to the top of the Memphis photography scene and became the number one newborn photographer in the city. The best part, my photographer friends and I in the city referred our brides to her for newborn photos years before we started dating. Since then, she has found passion in capturing weddings with me.
I'm in "awww" of her. Her beauty. Her passion. Her joy. Living and working along side her has been the greatest gift I have ever been given.
