Eve Rox Photography
Photography was one of the few things that I REALLY cared about when planning a tiny wedding (elopement really) at the courthouse. I was raised around professional photographers and so was invested in getting photos that could both make everyone in my family look great and that also had real artistic quality. Not only did Eve NAIL our photos on both counts, she was the sweetest, most grounding and overall awesome presence throughout the whole day. Seriously, if she could get our family (which includes an 80 year old, a frenetic six year old, and a two grumpy teenagers, plus us the bride and groom, NONE OF WHOM LIKE HAVING OUR PICTURE TAKEN) to look stunning and comfortable, she can do anything. Eve is also such a breeze to work with- it felt like having another trusted friend with us all day, and when she sent us a preview of the photos WITHIN HOURS, I was expecting maybe three, but got ~25 stunning shots off the bat! We just received our full gallery and these will be photos we'll all treasure forever. On top of all that, Eve's package was the best value of any of the photographers we looked into. She's a gem.
I enjoy traveling. I don't have a fee for weddings that are under 100 miles away from Los Angeles, CA
Please let me know that you are eloping and I can create a special package for you. Also If your wedding is during the week I have special prices for that as well.
Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
I’m a wedding photographer based in California, but travel to any destination. Connecting with my clients from day one is very important to me. It helps me understand who you are as a couple and as individuals. I want you to feel comfortable with me during your engagement sessions and specially during your wedding day.
Why do you want to work with APW couples?
I feel that APW readers are more opened minded to creativity, in love with romance, are into hip new traditions and love to show how much they love their soon to be spouse and know how to have a great time. They understand how important it is to connect with your wedding photographer.
What is your artistic approach to weddings?
I want to document journalistic moments on your wedding day at the same time that I am capturing the love story between you both. I want to see your intimate, romantic, loving, cheesy, funny and emotional side. I want you to look back at your wedding photos and laugh and cry tears of happiness of your wonderful memories.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I love to try new vegan restaurants, watch Hulu and Netflix, travel and have a good glass of red wine.
What's your favorite book?
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
What's your favorite movie?
Anything with Angelina Jolie.
If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
This is a really hard decision… I love music! 🙂 For now I would have to say anything with Florence and the Machine.
I cannot recommend Eve (and Edith) enough. Working with Eve was the first wedding decision we made after picking our venue, and it was the only decision that was absolutely stress-free and that we didn’t second-guess. For real. I was excited about Eve’s work because each wedding in her portfolio looked different and unique to each couple, and it was clear she is attentive and present with each couple for who they are in that moment. This was true just from looking at her portfolio, and even more so after having met with her a few times. She is an amazing artist, and I am so glad that she shares her perspective of the world through her photography. My only regret is that we couldn’t afford to extend Eve and Edith’s time because I wish I had them capture more of that day (but Eve was very accommodating of our budget!). They both are kind, supportive, very present people who find beauty and humor in any situation—this energy spread to us, throughout the whole wedding, and it is evident in the photographs. Ours was a homemade wedding without a professional coordinator, and although our friends came together to make the thing happen, there were still little gaps that Eve and Edith identified and fixed before they became catastrophes, IE we started to cut the cake and there was no plate; Edith ran into the house and found one, handed it to us like it was no big thing, smiling the whole time (which made us smile). They didn’t have do these things—they were our photographers—but they did, and did so with a great spirit of warmth and generosity. They are experts not just in aesthetics but in all things wedding, and although it would be unfair to think of them as helping making your wedding run, know that you are in really good hands and they seem to enjoy taking the edge off a stressful day. And they do all this while taking really gorgeous photographs that feel authentic to the moment, environment, and people in the frame. A few weeks before the wedding, my very loved sister(-in-law)—who was a major part of the wedding party and our family—died unexpectedly. I told Eve a few days before the wedding (when I could finally talk about it), explaining that although we intend for our wedding to be a happy occasion, we were very much grieving and the day would take necessarily take on a much different tone than we’d planned. Eve and Edith both understood the complexity of our feelings. I never felt judged for not seeming ‘happy’ enough; they were engaged, respectful, and very sweet about how we chose to honor my SIL; they were warm and accepting of the range of our emotions that day—all while also helping us as the bride and groom be in the moment on our wedding day. I am forever grateful to them for this, since they were a major part of me feeling calm and as happy as I could be on that day.
None. Not one. Not ever.
Honestly, I don’t have the words to describe to you just how incredible Evelyn was as our wedding photographer. Her photos have absolutely blown me away! As my husband and I were getting ready for bed just after the wedding was over, we got an email with a handful of incredible selects! I started crying all over again. She helped us feel comfortable posing and gave us just the right direction to make the photos exceptional. Her kindness and enthusiasm were more than I could have asked for. She had such a great energy. I can’t recommend her enough!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Eve. I initially found Eve through Instagram after finding that she photographed another wedding at our venue in the San Francisco Bay Area the year before. The immense depth and rich colors she beautifully captured in her pictures mesmerized me, and I immediately reached out. Through our initial Skype session, Eve’s warmth and kindness made my husband and I feel so comfortable as we knew we had met someone who was caring and had our best interests at heart. Not only that, we connected through our similar family values, as Eve and my husband come from large Latino families and bonded over how big our wedding was going to be. It felt like we had known her for a long time even though we had just meet her. Despite living in Southern California, Eve comforted us with her enduring trust that she would be committed to travel our San Francisco Bay Area wedding as she regularly photographs in the area and has friends and family that live there. After our initial meeting, we knew we could trust and count on her. Leading up to our engagement shoot, Eve was efficiently responsive from our many emails and text messages as she helped fine tune many of the questions and ideas I had for the shoot. I loved how receptive and excited she was for my ideas and I loved how she offered some of her own, too! Not to mention, she flew into San Francisco just for the night to take our pictures! Prior to our engagement shoot, my husband and I have never taken professional photos and were a little nervous how they would turn out. All of our worries went away within the first couple of shots as Eve made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Her excitement was palpable and made the engagement shoot so much fun! She blew our expectations out of the water with her commitment to capture as many pictures as she could, even spending the whole afternoon with us (way longer than we thought she would spend). We even drove around the city to find more places to take pictures and despite us offering to end the session (out of courtesy, we loved it and could have gone for longer), she eased our worries and insisted we spend more time. Her commitment to get to know us and capture this special time in our lives made me overwhelmed with immense gratitude and appreciation. By the end of the engagement shoot, we felt that we had met someone who clicked with us so well and we truly had found a friend in Eve. In addition, she surprised my husband and I with our completed engagement shoot just a few days later! Leading up to our wedding, Eve was so meticulous about the schedule for the day, which made me feel so comforted (since we did not have a wedding planner or day of coordinator). I truly felt that I could rely on her for her advice and wisdom in planning how the day was going to go. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early with the second photographer and jumped right into action. She captured all the small details before our ceremony and was accommodating and creative when we got a little behind schedule (due to hair and makeup taking a little longer than expected). Throughout the rest of the day, she effortlessly captured every moment and even stayed longer at the end to get the last shot of my husband and I in a redwood grove where our ceremony took place. Truly, we cannot thank Eve enough for everything she did for my husband and I. I cannot tell you how many people have commented on how BEAUTIFUL our pictures are. Eve truly has a gift and everyone at our wedding couldn’t say enough wonderful things about her. Eve beautifully captured such a special time in our lives and we couldn’t be more thankful or appreciative for everything she has done for us. Thank you so much, Eve!!!
What can I say about our photographer, Evelyn? Wow. Theres a lot I want to say but I just want to express the bullet points -- she was so amazing, professional, and helpful. We changed our wedding from an elopement to an actual ceremony, and she agreed to the date changes. Not only that but she went and above and beyond to help me with the actual wedding planning, helping me with so many details and things I didn't have any clue how to do. Just so so helpful, even when that wasn't part of her job at all and wasn't required. It felt like she really actually did care about wanting us to have the wedding we wanted, and was always so easy to get ahold of and quick to respond to any questions. She did an amazing job at our wedding and got some really beautiful photos of us which we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Additionally, after the wedding our photos were ready pretty quickly and she made it simple to access and order prints that we wanted. Then a few weeks later we got a package in the mail and it was a beautiful one-of-a-kind flash drive with our photos and some prints that she had done as well. It was just really amazing and I am so thankful that she was there to capture our big day and to help us so much. Highly recommend!!
Evelyn is amazing! She is an extremely talented photographer with great taste, and she is also exceptionally skilled at editing. We are so in love with our photos! It was so great working with Evelyn. She is easygoing, funny, super accommodating, and professional. Evelyn goes above and beyond of what is required of her; no joke, she even offered to help me make phone calls to vendors while I was planning my out of state wedding! Evelyn is a phenomenal human being and a true artist. We were so lucky to have been able to book her! Thank you so much, Evelyn!
None at all whatsoever
I found Eve on Instagram when I was scouring professional photos taken at our venue to get ideas on layout and timing of the event. Her photos literally made me gasp. To capture the beautiful essence of natural scenery while not missing details of the day, which are so important to each couple, is a tough challenge that she knocked out of the part. She was easy to work with, very communicative, and super fun to be around. She made us feel at home in front of the camera, which helped a ton with our candid photos (some of which are my favorite). I would recommend Eve to any couple and I truly hope we have an opportunity to work together in the future.
My partner and I initially found Eve’s photos on Instagram. We emailed her, along with a few other photographers, to inquire about pricing and availability. Even from the first email encounter, working with Eve was incredible easy and stress-free. We felt confident in choosing her as our wedding photographer. A couple months after signing the contract (with about 6 months to go before the wedding), I received an email from Eve out of the blue. She was going to be in the Bay Area shooting other events, and wanted to offer a free engagement session for us in her downtime. We initially had not wanted to take engagement photos — my partner and I don’t like having our picture taken! — but we are so glad we did. Those photos, like the photos on the day of our wedding, turned out gorgeously. I would recommend Eve to any couple for their wedding day. She is so easy to work with, has a great sense of humor, and makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera — even if you are like us and usually hate it. You can’t go wrong with Eve!
After reviewing so many portfolios and talking to many local wedding photographers, we were so happy we came across Eve on Instagram! We had a very intimate wedding, and Eve stepped up and made sure everything went smoothly. Not only do we have beautiful photographs of our wedding day but we have amazing engagement photos with our dog! She even surprised us with a very sweet gift a few months after the wedding.
Where do I begin with Eve? From the moment my wife and I contacted her, we knew that she would be the one to capture the momentous occasion that would soon be known as the unofficial wedding of the century. It began with a Skype call to get a feel for each other's personalities and we automatically clicked. Eve and Edith were both warm, welcoming, and overall incredibly fun people to interact with. We decided to book them immediately and they never failed to disappoint. The package that we purchased, which was very reasonably priced for the amount of work that goes into it, included both engagement and wedding photos. Due to the fact that my wife and I live in San Jose and are planning a wedding in Los Angeles, it was quite difficult to schedule a time where we could both be in the same place at the same time. Eve went above an beyond any expectation that we had when she offered to do our engagement photos in San Francisco. When we finally met face-to-face for the first time, it was as if we were long-time friends reuniting. The conversation was easy and the jokes were flying! We hit up two separate spots (Magnolia Brewing Co. and Clarion Alley) and the interactions just felt SO natural. We finished up and said our goodbyes until the wedding day (sadly). On the wedding day, Eve and Edith were beyond prepared; they knew what to do, when to do it, who to talk to, how to talk to them, and every little detail that allowed our day to simply flow while they captured it seamlessly. They were able to capture photos candidly when needed, while also being able to direct us in such a way that helped us express our personalities freely! And finally, the reception. Having them there was not only a blessing, but an absolute pleasure. I can remember seeing them on the dance floor and smiling because they were not just there to photograph the best night of my life, they were there to experience it WITH US. Towards the end of the night when they finished up, my wife and I thanked them incessantly and eventually, shared some tears over the pure joy that we felt having them be a huge part of our wedding day. If you have a choice on wedding photography, it would be in your best interest to go with Eve and Edith. They are experts at their craft; professional, detail oriented, knowledgeable, experienced, and a pleasure to be around. I will continually recommend them forever.
Eve is a hard working, dedicated and highly skilled photographer. Despite the 90 degree heat and my crazy family and friends meeting one another Eve kept her cool and snapped the memorable moments of the evening. I work in film and have hired countless crew members for shoots over the years and have rarely seen someone work so hard. I kept looking over my shoulder during important moments to catch her attention and she was already there while still giving me personal space to enjoy the special day. The photos have a candid quality to them just like I discussed with Eve beforehand and look fantastic. We received a few photos right after the wedding and the rest within the time outlined in the agreement. Choose Eve!
Having Evelyn photograph our special day was wonderful. She made sure that we knew that she was there for us every step of the way. The day went by so quickly but Evelyn managed to capture every moment so that we can look back at our photos and relive all the sweet memories. The quality of her work is stellar and her easy-going energy really helped us feel at ease. I will definitely continue to recommend her to my friends and family.
