I'm sooo in love with our photos!!! Crystal & Mike shot our wedding last month as well as our enagement photos, their work is just fantastic! I am thrilled with how everything came out and I've received so many compliments on the photos. Photography was really my #1 priority in wedding planning and I spent a lot of time looking around- when I found their site I was very impressed with their work, the details shots and portraits were the best I've seen. We set up a meeting and liked them right away, they are both very nice and warm people! They're also extremely talented and work great as a team (they are married!), and we were very comfortable having them around all day. It was SO exciting to look at the photos from the wedding! Every time I thought I saw all of the photos from the cake cutting, or first dance, or anything else- I would find another set from another angle! Having 2 photographers really paid off! We have so many great photos that it's been a challenge just to decide which ones to frame! Seriously the best decision I made, I will recommend them to anyone I know getting married!! Oh and the funniest thing, my fiance and I are pretty nerdy, but you can't tell from our pics. Honestly, my first reaction seeing the engagement photos was "omg, honey, they made us look cool!". Sounds silly but it's true, they are THAT good!

Crystal & Mike are absolutely wonderful! Words can't properly express how truly happy my husband and I are with our engagement & wedding day photos! I'll forever be thankful for the beautiful memories they were able to capture on the most special day of our lives.

We were most pleased with the variety of pictures we received - especially those extra special candid moments that are often so difficult to get - Crystal & Mike succeeded!

We were 100% satisfied with their level of professionalism - and most importantly, their ability to connect with us on a personal level. My husband and I were honored to have them with us on our wedding day as they worked with such ease and truly made us feel as though we were the focus of the day!

Toole Art Photography allowed us to be ourselves in both our engagement photos and on our wedding day. It was as if they were old friends of ours.....just wonderful people!

Thanks Crystal & Mike for your incredible service and beautiful pictures that we will forever cherish!

Crystal and Mike did an AMAZING job shooting our wedding day. We couldn't have chosen better photographers. We fell in love with their work when we stumbled across their website and were thrilled that they were available on our date. They were a pleasure to work with...both very friendly, low-key and professional. Crystal and Mike were super-responsive throughout the whole process of planning. They were so flexible and patient on our wedding day and did a great job getting pictures of EVERY aspect of the day while making everyone feel comfortable and without being in the way. Our pictures are SO beautiful and varied. We have absolutely no complaints about the service or the final product and would highly recommend Toole Art Photography.

After seeing their blog www.tooleart.com/blog I absolutely had to have them shoot our wedding. Their work is absolutely amazing!!! I love their whole philosophy of shooting every wedding so that it reflects the couples personality. Or how they only take a limited number of weddings each year so they can focus on their couples and get the images edited faster. (only was 2 weeks for us, and they edit every single image, that is awesome!) To top it all off Crystal and Mike are such cool and fun people that it was like having a good friend photograph our wedding. I feel so lucky to have found them, they are really not kidding having Art in their name.

We could not have asked for a better photographer! The whole experience with Toole Art Photography was amazing. I found them online and was a little uneasy not having a direct recommendation...they did not disappoint! Crystal and Mike were very flexible when talking through the contract and Crystal even met us prior to the wedding [since we were out of town] to dicuss the details of the day. The day of the wedding, we barely knew they were there. They were very professional and creative. Having a husband/wife team made the photos run smoother and helped to ensure nothing was left un-documented!
A few weeks later, the photos were on their blog and were wonderful. The blog provided a place for family and friends to see a 'sampling' of photos without having to see ALL of the photos taken that day. Once my husband and I had the opportunity to see all of the photos, we were so impressed with the thoughtfulness and creativity that went into each shot. All of the little details that we had worked so hard to plan for months were documented.
Toole Art Photography rocks!!

The photographers were great; they made us feel relaxed and enjoy the time, which especially made our smiles more natural and larger! They recommended that we took pictures before the ceremony and I am so glad we did; our day was much less stressful with that advice!! Sometimes they are slow on emails, but not so bad.

Toole Art Photography gave me exactly the kind of pictures I wanted of my wedding day. They were able to capture all of the little details that I want to remember (and some that I didn't even get to see at the wedding, as the day was a blur). They also were very cooperative and worked with my family and wedding party to get all of the different combinations of posed pictures that we wanted. I love their mixture of traditional and photojournalistic photography. Crystal and Mike were easy to work with, and just really nice people. We had a great time shooting our engagement pictures, and by the time our wedding came around, we were just super comfortable being around them. Our photos came out absolutly beautiful and I'll adore them forever.

Toole Art Photography were the perfect choice for our photographers. Crystal and her husband made sure we had a wide variety of pictures of everything and everyone. They blended seemlessly with the guests and in addition to getting fantastic pictures, we and our guests all enjoyed spending time with them. They managed to take photos of many things without making us aware they were even taking pictures. I cannot say enough positive things about Toole Art Photography. I hope to use them again for other events that require professional photography.
