Gary Evans Photography focuses on passionate storytelling to document your day in the most unique way possible, pushing the boundaries and working with you to create a lasting family legacy that you will enjoy for years to come. The team at The Ring had the opportunity to interview some of the brides from Gary Evans Photography’s recent wedding collections and discovered that they were all just as in love with their images and the team as we are.

From the beginning

Principal Photographer and visionary Gary Evans built his business in Canada after years of success with a previous studio he owned in the UK.  He has extensive experience working with other photographers in the UK and a thirst for constant learning through workshops and personal mentoring with the world’s top photographers.  Gary Evans Photography had 10 years of experience in the UK before launching here in Canada in 2016 and now has over 700 happy wedding couples to date.

The other half of Gary Evans Photography is Kim Evans, who herself has an extensive background in weddings as well as art direction for national tv projects. Together they combine forces to provide a luxury experience and service for local couples.

Standing apart

Where do we start?  Working with the team at Gary Evans Photography is a totally unique experience!  From their cozy studio to including an album in all their wedding collections, being able to offer gorgeous printing, a reveal of wedding images with your family to view your photos for the first time, it’s clear that your experience with their team and studio is #1 priority.  As Gary says “when you trust us to create your wedding collection, we welcome you into the family.  We want to work with you to develop a schedule of the day that works for you, so we can maximize our creative output.  We are on your team.”

Going above and beyond

Gary’s personality is definitely one of the first things that stands out in the minds of many couples who have worked with Gary Evans Photography for their special day

From the moment of the initial consultation, sitting down with Gary, he is able to both put them at ease and get them excited about their upcoming wedding. His professional yet relaxed manner – along with a killer British accent – are among the qualities that so many couples are instantly attracted to when they meet him. Of course, his beautiful images that capture the emotion and spirit don’t hurt either!

“We want to provide our couples with images that capture their wedding story and are the start of their family legacy. We are always pushing to capture their wedding from all angles and create new and groundbreaking artwork.”

Full-service studio

Gary and his team work especially hard to make sure that the day is well planned – from a photography perspective. “We are rarely putting our cameras down. We are always searching for new angles and perspectives to make our couples wedding photos epic and take them to the next level. Our creative sessions and shooting a beautiful signature portrait for our couples during the wedding day is one of our favorite parts!”

Gary Evans Photography is thriving in their new studio, located in Downtown Kitchener, beside The Walper Hotel. Their goal is to provide their couples with a full service experience from the moment they sit down initially to discuss their vision to receiving their wedding prints and albums. The experience is start to finish.

Your wedding collection is extensive with his classic contrast and bright colourful photos to tell your wedding story in your beautiful Italian album (included with your wedding collection) and a bold dramatic style for signature portraits, ideally suited to be displayed in any of their gorgeous print options on your wall.

Bride, Brittany Othmer says. “One of the reasons we chose Gary was because of the time he spent with me at our first meeting. My mom and I attended a wedding show and ended up in Gary’s booth. He approached us and took half an hour of his time talking with us, showing us his work and his cameras and he answered every question we had as other brides came in and out of the busy booth. That showed me his dedication, focus and desire to make his clients happy.”

Engagement photos that matter

Engagement sessions aren’t just an excuse to get to know your photographer and get a new Facebook profile pic. The team at Gary Evans Photography works with you to create stunning artwork in meaningful locations that you can’t wait to display on your wall. “We want you to love your engagement photos just as much as your wedding photos! You can let your hair down, show off your personalities and really highlight your love story. You don’t want every photo in your home to be in your wedding wear, right?”

Packages and pricing

Gary’s years of experience photographing weddings have taught him that every wedding is different and the ideal amount of time that a couple needs to tell their story differs from couple to couple. One constant through all his packages is the inclusion of an album. The team at Gary Evans Photography wants you to leave with a top quality album to proudly display your wedding photos to your family and friends. Too often they found that couples had gone years with just a USB in a drawer and hadn’t printed anything. They sourced the best albums and printing to be able to offer their couples top quality printing to take their images to the next level. Packages with Gary Evans Photography start at $2999 ensuring that each couple can choose exactly what they need.
Gary explains what goes into each wedding collection “The goal is always to produce beautiful, intimate, epic wedding photographs that make my clients struggle to decide which to include in their albums and display on their wall.”

Gary did my sons wedding this past September 2015. We are a different sort of family and love to have fun and Gary captured every important,loving,fun moment throughout the day and then some. I look at the pictures and video montage regularly and still cry with happy tears. The memories he was able to give us of this most important day to date makes me speechless. You can't put a price on memories. It was worth every dime and then some. I hope when they decide to give me grandchildren you'll be there to capture those memories for us too.

Gary took the plain and ordinary and made it fantastic! Our August 2013 wedding held on a farm was captured by Gary from every aspect! He is amazingly skilled and professional. He took the time to take specific shots (of our HUGE) family with such patience and also captured those little moments that we never thought of! Because of Gary we have incredible photos of the best day of our lives!

Gary photographed my wedding on September 24th, 2016. I met Gary at a Bridal Show and instantly knew he was going to be my photographer. I told Gary that I wanted to do a reveal, so that I can capture the first time Jason sees me. Gary got really excited and told me about this great place in Cambridge to take pictures. His passion for photography is so evident in his beautiful photos. The day of the wedding was nothing short of amazing. Gary instantly felt like family 🙂 All of our guests still rave about how awesome Gary is. One of the best decisions I ever made was having Gary as our wedding photographer. Hands down the most amazing and creative photographer.

Gary was beyond amazing! He was professional, fun, and very patient which is required with a huge bridal party and a not so wonderful videographer. Gary always responded promptly to any questions I had up to the day of the wedding and he took amazing photos, especially with a group of not so photogenic males. My husband says Gary is not only a photographer, but helped with their ties, boutonnieres, and anything else that was required. The way he presented our photos to us at the very end made me cry. I would absolutely recommend Gary to anyone looking for a photographer,

Gary Evans of Gary Evans Photography is a fantastic, wonderful photographer. His style, varying shots, original backgrounds and recommendations from friends quickly put Gary at the top of our list when choosing our wedding photographer. He's very calm, patient and fun while shooting, and makes you feel so incredibly comfortable in front a camera (when so many of us have never 'modeled' before). If you're looking for someone who will completely cover every aspect of your wedding day on his own, while also ensuring that he's capturing every moment, every candid laugh, tear and incredible memory that happens throughout the day... then Gary Evans is your man. Not to mention his turn around time is so quick!!!

My wife and I chose Gary as our wedding photographer, and have absolutely no regrets - he was fantastic from our first meeting right through to our wedding day. Not only were the photos everything we were hoping for, but he was crucial to keeping us on schedule, without taking away from the experience of our wedding day in any way. We had a small window in which to capture all of our photos in the Guelph Arboretum in order to get back to the venue in time, and the quality and variety of photos that Gary was able to capture is astounding. We would highly recommend Gary Evans Photography to any and all couples looking for the perfect photographer to capture their special day.
