Hello I'm Evelyn Alas, and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer in the Washington D.C. Metro area. I love shooting everything and every one. My passion for photography started when I was very young, with a simple 35mm point and shoot camera. I truly started developing my photo skills in high school, black and white photography classes. It was in those classes that I knew what career I wanted to pursue. Consequently, in college I received a BFA in photography and a minor in Art History.
Shooting weddings came naturally; It perfectly fused my passion for shooting people and the environment. I take a photojournalistic approach when shooting as well as staged, to enhance the moments . Capturing those little moments and details is what focus on. Being creative and keeping it fresh is what I strive for, while maintaning classic and timeless feel.
Lastly I am a member of Professional Photographers Association (PPA).
I travel worldwide. Please check out my website!
Thanks and all the best!

Evelyn was referred to us by my brother and sister-in-law, and we're so glad we listened to them. It was a great experience being photographed by her as both a bridesmaid and a bride. She is such a kind and comfortable person to be around, and really worked to get exactly the photos we wanted. She also responds to emails promptly! She's the best!Sent on 11/19/2016
I have worked with Evelyn a couple of times now, and at each turn have been impressed by her ethic. During a PARTICULARLY challenging event, she kept calm, remained professional, and most importantly, got the photos she needed to tell a great story. I would HIGHLY recommend her services - she is awesome!
The Grand, an amazing venue with a hint of French and Italian architecture for luxurious and elegant events, has recently hosted a beautiful and classy wedding where RimasFilms collaborated with the wonderful Evelyn Alas Photography. At first glance Evelyn seems very professional and polite as she is always smiling with a bubbly personality. Which helps people to relax and feel more comfortable around all of us strangers in the wedding. What impressed RimasFilms most about Evelyn was that she never intrudes anyone: the newlyweds, the guests or other vendors. She works calmly, but swiftly. Evelyn is everywhere but in no one’s way, as well as working hard and tirelessly she captures the most precious moments at the wedding.
Evelyn was amazing to work with. As an officiant, I always make it a priority to touch base with the photographer(s) prior to the start of the ceremony and provide them with a copy of what to expect. Evelyn took every piece of advice I offered, and had many additional ideas to contribute as well! It's always so great when all the vendor team-mates are able to collaborate and work smoothly together, and Evelyn helped set that tone instantly! I sincerely hope we get to work together again in the near future.
