Contact Eastlyn Bright Tolle

Of all the things I get to do in this world, photographing weddings is one of my favorite. It's like being in the front row of the best show I've have ever seen, because I'm not only witnessing the moments of the before and after, the single and married, and the birth of a new family, I'm capturing them. 
With that said, I want to share in couple's joy by documenting their story in a way that, I believe, will be dynamic, unconventional and leave a lasting legacy for their future family. 
My style is unconventional because I'm not the parent's photographer. I'm not the audience's photographer. I'm not here to please anyone expect the couple. 
My heartfelt desire is to photograph people and moments as they are. I may give direction as to where to stand, but I'm not going to plan poses based on other photographer's work. I want to capture people in an honest state because authenticity is beautiful. When you look at a photograph you should be able to not only see it, but feel its emotions.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Ohio. If your wedding/elopement/anniversary/engagement session is out-of-state, we charge variations of a flat rate travel expense fee, depending on the location. If your wedding/elopement/anniversary/engagement session is out-of-the-country, then we only charge for round-trip airfare, hotel for 2-3 nights and a rental car (if needed).

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

It may seem like weddings are predictable, but your wedding is entirely unique, and that's because of you. You'll make your wedding personal, and the events of your day will happen in a way that is special to you. 
In all its beauty, wonder and real moments, your story will be there. We want to capture the events, emotions, and details of the day the way that they unfold. We don't need to stage shots because that's not the real story. 
We simply ask you to do and be you; we'll be be attentive listeners and watchers, and document what matters most to you.

Description of services: 
- Two photographers: Eastlyn Bright Tolle and Joshua Tolle. Being a husband and wife team has become vital to this business. With two photographers, not only are special moments not missed, but it is a lot more efficient and helps to keep the flow of the wedding day smooth. 
- All post-processed digital negatives, delivered to you via digital media. This means that every image delivered to you is in its finished state; and while we don't guarantee a certain number of photos, as each wedding is unique, we can say that on average clients typically receive between 500-800 pictures from their wedding. 
- A printing/digital use-rights release. This release allows you to print as many of the images as you want, as many times as you want, without restriction. It also allows you to share and use them online, with proper copyrights.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Why meet in a studio when we can meet at your favorite coffee shop or cafe? We're all about the personal face-to-face relationship. For those not local, we'd be happy to set-up a Skype session.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

Eastlyn likes to describe herself as a strenuous hiker with constant messy hair. Joshua likes to describe himself as craving more adventure than if safe for him. So if you're all about that wild wind-blown hair and you're not afraid to get a little dirty from a long hike or wet from waterfall mist, then we know we'd be the perfect match for your love adventure. 
If you're interested in a destination wedding, elopement or session, we believe that it's extremely important to be flexible. Travel isn't all glamor. It can be hard, uncomfortable and inconvenient at times, especially if you're on a budget. We have experienced this first-hard, so you can trust us when we say that it's still totally worth it. To put your mind at ease on our experience level, below is a list of places that we've already been, driven, camped, hike and/or photographed (and definitely wouldn't mind exploring again). 
PLACES WHERE WE'VE ALREADY EXPLORED | USA: been to every state except Hawaii, Louisiana, North Dakota and Vermont - Canada: British Columbia, Ontario and New Brunswick - Europe: Ireland, Wales, England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Liechtenstein, Iceland, and The Faroe Islands, Denmark - Mexico: Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel and Jaurez - Puerto Rico - Jamaica - Haiti - Grand Cayman - Bahama Islands
