MY PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE … life is a beautiful and colorful journey and every smile, every laugh, every touch carries meaning. My goal is to tell your story and the story of your wedding day by capturing the details, people, and natural interactions that create the ultimate wedding experience.
THE KEY TO AUTHENTIC AND INTIMATE PHOTOGRAPHS… is connecting with people and understanding moments and the meaning of those moments as they pass before me. I have had the distinct pleasure of working with hundreds of couples from all over the world, taking the time to get to know them by really listening and providing a positive, warm, and calming presence. One of my greatest strengths is an instinctual ability to read a room full of people and understand relationships.
WHEN IT COMES TO STYLE … classic color captures the moment. I believe the dynamic hues and intensity in my images reflect back to the eye and the heart. I shoot with a photojournalistic approach to document both the fleeting interactions and marquee moments. The key to capturing authentic and effortless editorial portraiture is striking a balance - never being intrusive, nor absent. My role on your day is not only to document every moment, but to harness my experiences and guide you. No detail is too small. You can trust me to correct that crooked bow tie or flyaway hair. I’m your eyes and advocate.
YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED TO LEARN… that before specializing in photography, I was an executive on Wall Street. From that frenetic world, I mastered problem solving on the fly. Quick decision-making is an essential and vital skill very often called upon on any wedding day. Surprises are no surprise.
CUSTOMER SERVICE IS MY HIGHEST PRIORITY … and exceeding expectations not only with my photographs, but also with my service throughout the wedding day and process is our fundamental and driving motivation. My experiences in finance instilled a level of exceptional and personal client care delivered by every team member at Evan R. Photography.
AT THE END OF THE DAY … I want couples to have a wondrous wedding experience filled with joy and am deeply honored to be able to chronicle these moments. Confident and happy couples have remarkable wedding days and magnificent memories. They also photograph beautifully. So, I view it as my job to make sure people look and feel their best and most of all, have the greatest time of their lives!
This simple notion is really the key to it all… it’s your day, but we take the journey together.
Evan’s energy is contagious, and he really knows how to take the stress out of taking photos. He goes above and beyond, making our photo ideas look beautiful and natural. I couldn’t keep a smile off my face with him, he made me very comfortable and relaxed as I don't do well getting photographed. - Nathaly

Although I wish I could work with everyone that comes my way, I can only accept a certain number of commissions per year. However, we do work with a team of incredibly talented photographers that you can choose that also shoot with Evan’s photojournalistic approach. Evan has spent time with every associate so they are experienced and familiar with his signature aesthetic in order to offer an equally effortless editorial style. We’d love to help you find the right photographer for your day.
