We had the good fortune of connecting with Evan Rich and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Evan, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Without question, the most important factor that has contributed to our success has been our focus on the people who hire us and the way we treat them. People hire us to help them with one of the most important experiences of their lives. Treating people with compassion, understanding, and care goes a long way and is also just the right thing to do. It is not solely important that we deliver quality, but so is the way we deliver it. This type of service-oriented approach has made our couples extremely happy and grateful to work with us and their praise is not just rewarding, but also helps spread the word about us.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
For me, there is no aspect of photography more challenging or rewarding than capturing the spirit of someone and their natural expression, especially when they’re surrounded by the ones they love. Weddings put that authenticity on full display. From love drenched glances shared as vows are spoken to buoyant laugher between family and friends, and even the occasional gorgeous ugly cry of joy. There is so much inspiration found in the loving nature of people and bringing those details together to tell the immense story of a wedding day feels new every time. The color we use in our photographs reflects the natural vibrancy of the environment and people of the city of Miami.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’d start at Crandon Park or Bill Baggs, on the beach and hope for one of those crystal clear blue sky and matching water days. For lunch, I’d grab a bite to eat from a ventana on 8th street and head over to Wynwood for a stroll around the walls. I’d then I’d head south to Matheson Hammock for a sunset shoot and dinner at Red Fish Grill. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Other than family and friends I want to give a huge shout out to the Wedding community in South Florida. Vendors, planners, other photographers as well as other people who work in the same event industry have been incredibly gracious, supportive and helpful. While we’re not official colleagues, seeing familiar faces at different weddings gives that feeling of community and camaraderie that having a solitary business may miss out of. While we may be separate companies and run separate business, we all ultimately work together to create an unforgettable day for our clients
