Evan is amazing!! YOU WANT HIM TO TAKE YOUR PICTURE. Not only is he funny and personable, he is also a true professional. He is quick on the reply and very detailed in his work. I used him for my wedding in May 2016, and after my best friend saw him work and saw our photos, she immediately wanted him for her's next year!! He gave us SO many photos back, and each one is so beautiful.
He asked us tons of questions and really took the time to get to know us beforehand to ensure our day went smoothly and exactly how WE wanted! Not to mention, he was bossy in the best kind of way! Haha! If you trust him and his eye, he may ask some different stuff from you but I always obeyed and I don't regret it! Those ended up being some of my favorite pics! He's original like that, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
My favorite part about his work is how true his photos are to the moment. They're absolutely gorgeous, but not in a fake, posed, magazine-cover way. In a true, real way; he actually captures memories and moments! I've never felt so beautiful, but I still felt like me. I've never known anything like it.
If you're looking for a wedding photographer, remember that your wedding will be a whirlwind and the only part of that crazy day that will last is your spouse and your pictures. I'm so glad Evan captured all our memories for us!!
In short, GET EVAN.
"We used Evan Hampton Photography for our engagement and wedding pictures. I have nothing bad to say, Evan was amazing! Not only are his pictures beautiful, he is also fun to be around! He is so down to earth and easy going but can still boss some people around in order to get the perfect shot. :) I am still in awe of how great everything turned out and I'm already trying to figure out how I can use him again!"
Mr. & Mrs. Lugo | Jacksonville, FL
"Not only are our pictures beautiful, but Evan was a pleasure to have around during our wedding. Evan worked to get each element we requested without hesitation. He is easygoing and affable---easy to get a hold of and communicative and was friendly with guests and vendors. We opted for a "phone free" reception and relied solely on Evan to capture these important moments, and they turned out beautifully, we have great tangible memories to grace our home for our lifetime. Evan quickly grasped bits of our personalities from our engagement session and was able to create a volume of photos from our wedding that really reflect us as a couple. We look forward to working with Evan again, as we will not hesitate to call him again to capture other important moments in our lives."
Mr. & Mrs. Wieger | Jacksonville, FL
"We found Evan through a family friend just a couple of months before our wedding, and I'm so glad we did! Evan was incredibly professional, but also a hoot to be around. He made the photo experience fun...and the photos...don't even get me started on how much I love them! Gorgeous! If you're looking for a photographer, you just found him. Thanks Evan for capturing our day!"
Mr. & Mrs. Campbell | Jacksonville, FL
"Finding a wedding photographer for our Lakeland, FL wedding was more of a challenge than either my fiance or I had anticipated. Our introduction to Evan Hampton was a fortunate stroke of serendipity. We couldn't be more grateful for that introduction. Evan was fantastic from day one. He made the whole process devoid of stress as he chatted with us on Skype multiple times prior to the wedding. In addition, he arrived a day early to Lakeland to do a walk-through of the venues and chat with us before the craziness that is the day of. He was super flexible with the timing, the locations of things, and our shot list. He went above and beyond from the moment he arrived. And the final product was spectacular! The pictures captured all the aspects of our day better than we could have wished.
One thing we thought was really special was how between the ceremony and reception Evan told my husband and I to take some time for just the two of us, instead of sitting for more photos. We hadn't expected this, but really appreciated those few private moments. Thank you Evan!"
Mr. & Mrs. Strong | Lakeland, FL
"My fiance and I met Evan through a bridal show and were impressed with his quality work and very reasonable price! When we booked our engagement session, he came prepared with not only his sense of humor but also his ninja skills to get the perfect shots! We received almost 400 edited photos that we absolutely love!"
Elena + Eric | St. Augustine, FL
"Choosing Evan Hampton as our engagement and wedding photographer was one of the easiest decisions we made throughout the wedding planning. Evan knows how to capture special moments of love, joy and happiness. He's not afraid to offer suggestions for best shots, and I think he did a little snooping on my Pinterest board to see what wedding photos I like. Very smart move! Evan is very easy to work with and I highly recommend him for any photography needs."
Mr. & Mrs. Parks | Jacksonville, FL
"Evan was such a delight to have as our wedding photographer. He took our ideas into consideration and everything turned out wonderfully! We were SO thankful he was willing to travel to Virginia for our event. It's funny as we looked back at our photos and said wow, we didn't remember seeing Evan in front of us or beside us. He was like a photographer ninja! Our pictures are amazing and we are still getting compliments on how great they turned out. Thank you Evan!"
Mr. & Mrs. Christine | Bedford, VA
"When my husband and I were engaged, I started looking at photographers. I have followed Evan online for a while, and I'm so glad he was available to shoot our New Year's Eve wedding! He drove to our little town in Georgia to take our engagement pictures and then to SC for our ceremony! He had never met my husband, but with his sense of humor my husband was put to ease. Evan is reasonably priced and should probably charge more for the amazing work he does! We have lots of our engagement and wedding photos around our house, and anytime someone new comes in they rave about our pictures! I tell everyone I can to use Evan!"
Mr. & Mrs. Williford | Myrtle Beach, SC
"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Evan, both on my wedding day and throughout my wedding planning process. He was so easy to get in contact with, and quick to respond to my emails and texts. This helped this busy bride stay organized and on top of things! I love how my pictures turned out and how he put his creative spin on both the process and final product. His laid back personality is just what a bride needs by her side when the craziness of the wedding day begins. So happy to have worked with Evan!"
Mr. & Mrs. Ivey | Jacksonville, FL
"Evan was AMAZING! The reason we went with Evan was because in the first 2 minutes of meeting him, he made both me and my fiance comfortable. My fiance is NOT a picture person, but he really liked Evan's personality immediately and on our wedding day Evan got great pictures of the groomsmen and groom's family, when the boys aren't into the pictures like the girls. I gave Evan a huge TO DO list and he captured all of my must haves that was on there. He did a great job and the pictures came out perfect. Within days after the wedding we were able to view them online. Our wedding album is great quality and I could not ask for more. Evan was a brave soul when doing our engagement photos as well, as he photographed the future bride and groom and our THREE dogs! They came out so cute and we could not ask for more. We have already recommended him to anyone who asks about a photographer and plan to use him for any future photos. Thank you Evan for everything!"
Mr. & Mrs. DeBiase | St. Augustine, FL
"Evan was FANTASTIC! He knew right where to be for the best shots, but it never felt like he was in the way. Although we never met prior to the wedding day, he fit right in with my family and friends and provided just the right amount of structure to keep the family pictures going smoothly without being demanding or adding stress. He also had great, creative ideas for bridal party and couples pictures. The turn-around time on pictures was very fast (3 weeks) and he sent us nearly 1,000 photos! And the photos are AMAZING! I couldn't be happier with my selection for photographer."
Mr. & Mrs. Soto | Melbourne, FL
"Evan was a great photographer! He was such a joy to work with. Evan was so flexible and helped make our wedding so special! His attention to detail and delightful personality were a bonus! We highly recommend him!"
Mr. & Mrs. McMillan | Nashville, TN
"Evan was so easy to work with, so accommodating of our needs, so flexible and willing to do what was best for us. The pictures were beautiful - they captured the beauty of the wedding service and the excitement of the reception. He was so calm and clear in giving us directions and even in dealing with unruly family members! I would trust him completely in photographing your wedding. He is a good person, very trustworthy and I would hire him again!"
Mr. & Mrs. Smith | Jacksonville, FL
"Evan was amazing! My husband and I made it very clear to him that we did not want the traditional style wedding photos, we wanted them to be fun and memorable. He did an amazing job working with the surrounding areas to provide us with non-traditional photos that truly captured our personalities and the spirit of the event. Evan's method of directing posed photos was very clear and easy to follow, making the time go by quickly and the photos to appear natural. Evan was also very open to trying out the poses that my husband and I thought up on the spot. He's very adaptable and flexible. Not only did Evan do an amazing job on the posed photos, but he captured every moment of our reception and stayed through the final dance. His photos really represented the excitement and fun that everyone was having."
Mr. & Mrs. Jarzenski | Jacksonville Beach, FL
"We hired Evan Hampton Photography for our recent wedding and I couldn't be happier with the results. Evan Hampton is an extremely talented photographer with a creative eye. While he listened to all of our suggestions he also came prepared with a number of great ideas to make our photos special. Apart from the beautiful images Evan gave us of our wedding, he was extremely professional and easy to work with. Where other photographers produce a set of proofs for the bride and groom, Evan gave us close to 1000 edited photos of our wedding, a value unmatched by any photographer of his caliber. Unlike many "semi-professional" photographers who hide their mediocre images behind their skill in photoshop, Evan is a trained professional who takes quality images, you won't regret your decision to use him!"
Mr. & Mrs. Monroy | Charleston, SC
"Evan's services are remarkably affordable for the level of talent that he exudes. He's very good at following a plan and taking direction, but he's also qualified to bring creative ideas to the table. He's comfortable and approachable, which is necessary for the single vendor that brides spend most of their day with! He's easy to reach, and has a quick turn around time for proofs, which I appreciated. I can easily recommend Evan Hampton Photography to other brides without hesitation."
