Ever since I was younger, I've found a real joy in taking pictures. My father was a big lover of the craft, and we had a darkroom in the basement. I got my start learning how to photograph with film and took photography classes in high school and college. Later on I attended graduate school and received a Graduate Degree in Photography.
I honestly never considered wedding photography to be my main focus, however, a lot of my college friends started asking me to capture their wedding day. They then told their friends, who turned around and told their friends. Now, 11 years later, weddings are all I photograph...and I love every minute of it.
When I'm not traveling to photograph weddings, I can most likely be found devouring delicious Chick-fil-A or visiting Walt Disney World with my family. I call Jacksonville, FL home with my wife, Christina, and our two sons, Brantley and Beckett.
I was born and raised in Lynchburg, VA. I weighed 9 lbs. 9 oz. Most of that, I believe, was in my big head. It took several years to grow into it.
I am the fourth of five kids. Growing up in a large family had many joys and pains. But a lot of my favorite memories include this crazy bunch of goofs.
Early on I realized I'm not the athletic type.
Here is proof.
I played t-ball as a kid, but quickly realized that sports weren't for me.
Instead of sports, I played the drums. Starting in the 6th grade, and through high school and college, I was in the marching band drumline. We were awesome.
In 2008, a college friend told me about Miami Ad School Atlanta @ Portfolio Center. One of the Top 10 art schools in the U.S. I was accepted, spent two years there, and got a Graduate Degree in Photography.
While living in Atlanta, I met the love of my life while attending a local church. Not a bad place to meet someone.
I married my best friend, Christina, in 2010.
In Atlanta where we met.
We moved to Jacksonville, FL and enjoy pursuing our dreams together.
In 2014, we welcomed our son, Brantley, into the world. God blessed us with our first handsome young man.
In 2018, we welcomed our second son, Beckett.
Our ride in life has gotten a little more wild and interesting.
EXTRA INFO ABOUT EVAN
One of the best chapters in someone's life story is their wedding day, and I love to capture it in a creative and imaginative way. My goal is to help you have fun and give you reassurance that your story is in good hands.
I always try to make sure I let each unique wedding story shine through in the bride and groom's photographs. While I like to have fun with my couples, I also take the occasion very seriously.
I strive to invest in my couples as they invest in me. I don't treat weddings like any regular job. I treat my brides and grooms like friends, and continue that friendship past your wedding day. I don't want to just provide you with your visual story. I also want to give you a shield to help protect that story. Marriage isn't easy, but there are a lot of us who are here to help you through those valleys and celebrate with you on the hilltops. This chapter in your life is not only a story worth telling, but one worth preserving.
Let's meet and chat about your wedding day. I want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how y'all got engaged.
I'm here as a resource beyond photography, whether you're looking for recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals. I'm happy to share what I've learned since 2008 from photographing weddings across the country.
I love doing engagement sessions because it's a great chance to get better acquainted before the big day. Every booking includes this time together.
About six weeks before the wedding, I typically check in to see how it's going and to make sure I have everything I need to capture the big day.
It's your wedding day and I'm so honored to tell your visual story. It's going to be amazing, and you'll have nearly 1,000 quality photos to remember it all.
As you take your first steps as husband and wife, just remember your wedding day is only the beginning. I'm always here to celebrate your milestones.
I'd love nothing more than to meet with you and help you share your visual story. I'm available anytime for a bite to eat and a nice chat. Simply contact me below and we'll go from there.
