For couples who do things a little differently

I believe the best photographs tell a story and capture a feeling. Your favorite photos aren't perfect. You love them because they remind you of the way you felt and transport you back to that moment in time. They become treasured and powerful heirlooms allowing you to experience emotions over and over. So let's capture the in-between, the quiet anticipation, the layers of love that encapsulates this season of your life.

The truly magical photos that have you saying "this is us"

let me show you how

Hey, I'm evangeline.

A Santa Cruz wedding photographer serving Big Sur, NorCal all over California & beyond for love.

I've never fit into a box and you and your wedding don't have to either. If you're looking for an expert at following your heart, a rule breaker, an overall chill person to support you

all while taking beautiful and meaningful photos so you can relive it all-then I'm 100% your girl.

My goal is to help you have an awesome experience that's as stress free as possible. The images I capture tell the story of your love and the beauty of the setting that surrounds you.

Kind Words

"It's not an overstatement to say that hiring Evangeline 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 but 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"

My promise to you

The majority of my clients have never been married nor professionally photographed before and feel some anxiety around this. I promise that through my process you'll feel so comfortable that your nerves will melt away and you'll be able to fully absorb every moment with your partner (and get meaningful images that show just that).
