Robert Evans is one of the top wedding photographers in the world. He’s worked around the world and photographed the nuptials of Hollywood celebrities and Silicon Valley power brokers. Perhaps more than any other genre, wedding photography calls a variety of photographic and problem-solving skills into play. If you can excel at wedding photography, you can do anything. Evans explains, “Wedding photographers have to think quickly and work quickly. A good, well-seasoned wedding photographer can do anything, because we have to walk into situations—sometimes with dismal lighting and in dismal locations—and make all of that look good.” So when we say that Evans is top wedding photographer, we’re really saying that he’s a top photographer in a variety of fields, from weddings to corporate portraits to sports and more. In his bag, you’ll find a collection of gear that’s as versatile as the work Evans does.
