Who are we?


Our names are Sam and Kayla Easterling.
We're traveling photographers based out of Portland, OR serving worldwide.
After years of working as freelance wedding photographers, we realized that we were bursting at the seams creatively. Our passion and excitement for our craft was only growing;
So we decided to take the long anticipated next step and start our own photography company!
The Wild East was birthed as a creative collective of ours, bringing our dream to life - allowing us to set out documenting real love stories all over the world.

Our journalistic style of shooting is for the couple that wants a more "unposed look."
We aim to capture the details of the day authentically, as they unfold. Focusing on the genuine, candid moments that make your story so unique.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our site!
We hope this is just the beginning of our relationship and we'd love to learn more about you! 

With all of our love,

Sam + Kayla
