Past and Present

Photographs are like magic. They take you back in time to a special day where cherished memories will come back every time you look at them. I feel blessed to be able to create such wonderful, magical moments for you and your family and that magic is even more special when my friends come back for more. I say friends and not clients because everyone who enters my studio becomes a lifelong friend. Take Kristin & Albert Brenner. I met them in early 2000 to share in their special day and create lifelong memories for them. It was a beautiful November day overlooking the ocean at the Belair Bay Club. I was still shooting film back then and we did both black & white and color. The images came out beautifully and Kristin & Albert loved them so much that she recommended us to her brother JD. 

On July 20th, 2002, JD and Shannon began their day at the Westlake Village Inn for some Before shots and portraits and then off to Calamigos Ranch for a wonderful ceremony and reception. I was shocked when Shannon surprised me with remembering my birthday.  It was such a nice addition to an already great day.  I truly feel apart of their wonderful family and feel fortunate that I am able to make such great connections with all of my clients.

The greatest satisfaction I can think of is when my friends invite me back into their lives to capture another special day. Seventeen years after Kristin & Alberts big day, I am back with my friends to create new memories for their children, Kayla and Adin at their B’nai Mitzvah. The kids were very easy to work with and it truly is a special moment for me to be back with my good friends and seeing where their lives have taken them. The ceremony was held at the Congregation of Ami in Calabasas where we had beautiful weather for their portraits. The party continued later at the Agoura Hills Recreation and Event Center where Kayla and her friends danced the night away while Adin and his friends ran all around outside. A very special day for everyone involved.

When you are ready to plan your special day, contact me Evan Guston Photography to schedule an appointment. I promise you will leave my studio with a new friend and the beginning of many wonderful memories. And for my returning friends, my doors are always open to help you with your next momentous occasion.
