I'M EVAN! Charlotte NC PHOTOGRAPHER, DOG & CAT DAD, + Coffee Addict
My name is Evan, but a lot of people call me Ev. I’m a wedding photographer based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. I’m a huge sucker for the littlest things in life – coffee, being outside, food of any type, ice-cream, my two fur babies (Luna & Leo), and loving on my family and friends. I graduated with my bachelors from the University of North Carolina Wilmington in December of 2019 and I consider the time spent there imperative to my photography journey.
I believe that every couple deserves to be celebrated, no matter the differences. It’s my mission to create an inclusive and safe space where everyone can love and live openly.
A huge chunk of my life has been spent taking on communal values. Contrary to the expectation of those who know me, I have always struggled to fit in a crowd of any type. It’s just my thing. As we get older, we really recognize the importance of having friends who are authentic and genuine - people who love, respect and support us. This practice can be seen in my photography through the experience I strive to give every single one of my clients. Cultivating an environment where one feels recognized, supported and genuinely cared for regardless of the type of shoot.
I am still booking for 2023. I’d love nothing more but to hear from you and talk about working together on your big day.
"We cannot say enough positive things about Evan Daniels! He stuck with us through multiple COVID-related cancelations and subsequent rescheduling issues and could not have been more patient or professional through the whole thing. We never once questioned whether he was the right photographer to capture our special day. He made everything easy for us, our hosts and all of our friends & family. Once we saw the photos he sent us, we were overwhelmed with gratitude. Evan has a unique vision; an easy-going, collaborative, positive style; and an incredible eye for detail that we just have not experienced with any other photographer we’ve known. He is an artist; a professional; a wonderful, kind personality and a new friend. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Evan. You are the best!"
"Evan Daniels is hands down the best photographer you will find! Not only will he be friendly and keep you genuinely laughing, he will truly become a friend who you can count on to be there for all the special moments. Evan is the most down to earth, kind human you will EVER meet, and his work is just absolutely phenomenal. I have recommended all of my friends who are engaged/getting married to connect with Evan. We know you will be so thankful to have chosen Evan Daniels Photography!!"
"Hands down the most enjoyable photography experience! Evan not only made the hours seem like minutes in this North Carolina heat, but really took the time on each look to make sure my fiancé and I looked perfect! Not to mention the actual picture turn around was so quick (loved that)!! I loved the pictures so much, I had to have three blown up and are now hanging in my home. I could not be more excited for him to photograph our wedding!"
"I have had the pleasure of working with Evan twice now - for maternity pictures and for an engagement session. Both times he has made it so effortlessly wonderful. My fiancé and I are far from models yet we never feel awkward or uncomfortable in front of his camera and the photos come out exceeding my expectations every time. He has the type of personality that just makes doing these types of things easy and more importantly, fun. The photos capture our personalities and the stage of life we are entering into and his editing style is truly the cherry on top."
"We loved our engagement and wedding photos! Evan was so easy and fun to work with. My spouse and I were both nervous about getting our pictures taken, but it went super smoothly and we felt at ease and comfortable the whole time. During our wedding, Evan was great at getting photos of family, friends, and all the little details. He worked well with other vendors and within the venue space. We’ve gotten lots of compliments on our photos, and we love how well he captured the memories and emotions from our celebration. We’d recommend him to anyone!"
