Kind Words

It's not an overstatement to say that hiring Evangeline for our elopement was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

She both fostered the magic and captured it, beautifully. I have never been one to dream of my wedding day...Evangeline helped us reframe that, and treat the day as the special thing that it is. She picked up on our preferences, our vibe, what we were comfortable with. She put in so much time and effort planning and executing what turned out to be the best day in history. Evangeline was our photographer, our officiant, our elopement coordinator/planner, and our guru. She is truly something special!
