Dear friends, clients, brides, and photographers,
Its been a wonderful few years, and I cannot tell you how much working with some of you has meant to me. However, effective early June of this year, Evan Baines Photography will be closing its doors permanently. I have managed to earn a tremendous opportunity for an exciting new (old) direction in my life, but this will preclude any professional photographic commissions. I will, however, continue to be a photographer for the rest of my life, and I expect to keep some version of this site updated in the future with my personal work.
If you are a current or past client, rest assured that I will execute my remaining professional obligations with enthusiasm. I have a handful of weddings and assignments left, and I hope to go out with a bang! I want to be sure that I look back on the end of my photographic career with pride.
Thank you to everyone who has shared part of this journey with me!

A simple portrait of my father, executed on large-format.

My wife is amazing on camera. She had already had makeup done by Sherita Leslie as we were helping out modeling for someone else’s shoot today, and I took advantage by getting a portrait afterwards.
Shen Hao 4×5 view camera, Fujinon 240mm f/9 lens, Ilford FP4+ developed in DD-X.
Single strip softbox camera left, large silver reflector camera right.
Shot wide open at f/9, with a good bit of forward swing and a little right tilt to get both eyes sharp.
