Learn more about our ads. We met LA-based Evangeline Lane at the San Francisco Lovesick Expo and she blew us away with her awesome and friendly nature. Now we're going to blow you away with her talent in capturing intimate, explosive, and transcendent moments at weddings. Evangeline comes from a family of rockers and artists, and travels the world extensively for weddings and to expand her own experiences. This diverse background informs her work and makes her a rock star with offbeat couples. Let's take a peek at what makes her tick AND see about this HUGE discount just for Offbeat Bride readers! Evangeline's take on wedding photography pretty much makes her your best friend with pro photography skills: My goal is for you to think of me as your good friend, someone who's in your corner and has your back — who helps you laugh and relax and look your best. After the day has passed, I want you to swoon over your images and walk away as happy and jubilant as you were on your wedding day. Evangeline's cred comes from all kinds of sources and is sort of serendipitous, too… In my early 20s I took off traveling across the country and have lived in New York City, San Francisco, Boston, a small town in Western Massachusetts, and Chicago. During my travels I studied sculpture and interior design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but settled into photography, where my true artistic passion developed. I got into wedding photography randomly five years ago, when a friend of a friend asked me to document their day and, just like that, I was hooked. Now I wonder, was it random at all? Evangeline is based on LA, but she's available to travel WORLDWIDE… we already know she's got the passport and the traveling pants. Plus, she's got a secret deal for destination weddings and of course, a discount for Offbeat Bride readers: OFFBEAT DISCOUNTS: Offbeat Bride readers get a SUPER HUGE discount package from Evangeline Lane!

That's the kind of "I don't give a fuck, I'm going to walk around topless in my undies" prep I want before a wedding. That's girl friendship personified right there. Reply That's one of my favorite shots too, Ashley! There was all kinds of nakedness going on down there in Mexico. Something about that warm climate and tequila that makes everyone feel more comfortable 🙂 I can't wait for the next Mexico wedding that I'm shooting in June! Reply Looking at it I was going "man, the framing and focus is perfect, and it's so intimate… Wait, is that a butt?! I LOVE THIS PICTURE." True perfection. Reply It's always fun when clients are open to that! Who doesn't love a good butt pic! 🙂 Reply Love!!!!!!!! I need her as my wedding photographer. Reply Evangeline is amazing. She really captures the pure moments and the memories you want to remember forever. And perfectly captures the nature of who the people are. Definitely booking her for my wedding! Reply I love the last shot! They look so happy and beautiful in an authentic way. I've seen so many stiff and formal wedding photos; these are AMAZING! Reply My fiancé and I recently took engagment photos with Evangeline! The photos are absolutely amazing. She gave us wonderful direction and we felt so comfortable with her! She will be our wedding photographer for our wedding in May! Yay!! http://www.evangelinelane.com/new-blog/2014/4/8/twin-peaks-sunrise-engagement-shoot-sneak-peek Reply Can't wait for your wedding, Jen!! SO EXCITED. Thanks for letting me be a part of it! Reply I have known Evangeline for many years and have watched her grow as an artist and as a photographer. Stunning photography. Anyone would be lucky to have her do their wedding pictures. She is so fun and really does make it easy for everyone in the wedding party to feel relaxed and confident about their special day; leaving what will be forever cherished moments of the wedding up to her. Reply Congratulations, Evangeline, on your new move to California! I'm from So. Cal. myself, so I KNOW you'll have a wonderful experience. And you're living right near great jazz, as well.
