The Evergreen Girls LLC
We are River (they/she/he) & Juniper (she/her) Evergreen, a.k.a the Evergreen Girls LLC, an artistic and alternative photography duo based out of Seattle, Washington.
(with frequent stops in Portland and the Redwood Coast)
We've been doing self-described “weird art kid sh*t” together since 2010, and are happy to be offering elopement and wedding photography for the people that take “weird” as a compliment.
If you're looking for vanilla brand photography, this isn't for you. Don't get us wrong, there's nothing wrong with vanilla… we just don't do that here.
We believe in 4 am Taco Bell Elopements and polyamorous handfasting ceremonies. Here, you're encouraged to let your freak flag fly, and if you need help waiving it we have your back. We are stoked to capture your pre-planned event but if you're looking for something more intimate and unique we have elopement planning and officiant services available as well. We'll take a deep dive into your personalities to plan an elopement that screams main character energy (yes, even for you introverts!)
Let's get funky and make art while you celebrate love! With services in both digital and analog formats, we have something for everyone. Nothing is stopping you from having your entire wedding shot on Polaroid, and yes, we've done that! There's nothing too extreme, and we're here to encourage authenticity; bring yourselves in all of your glory.
How I cater to offbeat weddings
Honestly, there is very little we do in life that isn’t offbeat. We are both neurodivergent, queer, polyamorous, and live what some consider a very “alternative” life. We understand the importance of discretion and privacy as well as the desire to live authentically, out loud.
We want our clients to feel seen and understood.
We prioritize working with people that don’t require us to mask who we are, and we offer the same in return. You deserve to be able to let your mask down on the day you and your partner(s) are celebrating love and acceptance.
We encourage meeting our clients face-to-face, either in person or via video chat, before booking so that we can make sure we vibe with each other before signing a contract. This encourages an environment of familiarity when shooting, and if you don’t think we’re a good fit you haven’t committed too soon in the process.
River photographed our elopement at the Avenue of Giants in March 2021 and we could not have asked for a better experience. Not only did she make us feel totally comfortable, but we had such a great time. The entire process from booking to receiving our final photos was seamless and super easy. And the best part? Our photos turned out incredible. We were so pleased with the whole experience and can’t recommend River enough! - Amanda
We offer all Offbeat Wed clients a free 5x7 Vivid Metal Print - mention that you found us here and we'll hook you up!
We also offer a sliding scale & work trade options to marginalized communities as well as teachers and nurses. If you'd like to work with us but can't afford our rates please reach out and we can figure out how to get you what you want. Worst case we'll refer you to someone we trust; best case we'll work together!
