Luxury Wedding and Fashion Photographer
Chris J. Evans is a luxury wedding and lifestyle photographer based on Maui, Hawaii. Chris began shooting fashion professionally in 2008 and has since traveled throughout the Hawaiian Island and California on assignments for fashion and lifestyle brands and magazine clients. His resume now includes celebrity weddings, destination weddings and commercial work for Target and surf industry veteran Dakine.
Chris's photography work has been featured in worldwide publications including Grace Ormond Wedding Style, Pacific Weddings, Surfer and Surfing Magazine, Flower magazine, Love your wedding, Brides and Hawaii business Magazine. His weddings have been featured on influential blogs such as Style Me Pretty, Popsugar, The Knot, Strictly Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes and Destination I do, to name a few.
In 2011 Evans fell into the wedding industry by chance when a friend asked him to shoot her celebration on Kauai. “I was reluctant at first but she would not take no for an answer! Besides who would turn down a trip to Kauai with friends?,” Evans recalls.
Since that first wedding in 2011, Chris has grown his business exponentially and has shot hundreds of weddings to date. With his background in fashion photography and keen sense for lifestyle and adventure sports, his clients appreciate the editorial look and feel of his images. “I want my brides and grooms to feel like they're being photographed for the covers of VOGUE and GQ," he says.
Chris grew up in Laguna Beach, California and was born into a family of artists. Creativity is in his bones. His Mother, D.N. Evans achieved worldwide fame as a fashion and wedding dress designer during the 1980s and created wedding gowns for Kris Kardashian, Tia Carrera, Chelsey Nobel and many other celebrities of that era. His Father, Michael Evans is a celebrated sculptor, painter and philosopher. His sister, Leesa Evans is a celebrity stylist and A-list costume designer who's clientele includes Edward Norton, Amy Schumer, Jason Segal, Zoolander 2, Bridesmaids, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and more.
Chris has called the island of Maui home since 2010 where he shares his life with his gorgeous wife and two daughters. He enjoys surfing, playing music and spending every minute with his girls.
