Evelien’s love of art, music and films shines through in everything she produces. It is that love and respect for the performers she works with that makes her give 100% of herself to any project she takes on. She is tireless. A perfectionist, Evelien will not hand over her final edit until she is content that she has gotten the most out of the material and has shown the artist in their best light. Like most performers, I am uncomfortable having my creative process documented and allow very few people into my work environment but I trust Evelien.

It’s great when a producer, Evelien, takes the time to get to know you, your point of view and then works with you to achieve the goal. When a Producer has drive like Evelien, your project is gonna roll like a NASCAR race.

Working with Evelien was a dream come true! She worked quickly to sort through hours of footage and created an emotionally compelling video for our foundation that was so spot-on for our brand and messaging. Evelien was very responsive to feedback and our turnaround time on this project was incredibly fast! If you have a chance to work with Evelien, grab it! She has become our new go-to resource!

Suburban Outlaw Productions IS the cutting edge for today's media. I found in working with Evelien that there were more creative and innovative ideas coming from her than I've ever seen working with other production companies. When you sit with her for a consultation she works WITH you in helping to bring out the best possible outcome for what you're looking to accomplish yet she offers some ideas that will truly ENHANCE the overall outcome. I had a fun yet professional experience working with Suburban Outlaw Productions, and the final product was superb. Just to give you an example my Facebook page blew up with just ONE of Evelien's ideas. She's a great person to work with, a woman of integrity, and brings a lot of passion to her work, and most importantly she gets the job done. What I really loved about working with Suburban Outlaw Productions is you can let them do their job and you know that your final outcome is going to be more than you expected. This allows you to continue doing what you do best and it also allows them to do what they do best. Suburban Outlaw Productions definitely over delivers and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to everyone, your satisfaction will be MORE than guaranteed.

I have had the pleasure of working with Evelien at two different companies. During our first experience I hired her on the spot because we had such a great initial interview. I appreciated her honesty, her passion for her work, her creativity and also--what became very evident with each passing day--her incredible work ethic. In both companies I always knew that if you needed something done, just go to Evelien. She was resourceful, proactive, talented, tireless and determined. She never turned away a request or created drama. She is a troubleshooter as well as a problem solver. Over the years I have watched her hone all her skills in the creation of her own company. I always tease her, "Is there anything you CAN'T do? She is a force to be reckoned with and I fervently wish I could work with her again in any capacity--she is THAT good. I admire her so much and celebrate all she has accomplished and will accomplish.”
I've had the pleasure of working with Evelien at MTV over the past 15 years. She has consistently come through for us again and again- casting talent and as a show Producer. She is thorough, clever and meticulous in her casting methods and always finds us the perfect personalities to tell our stories. Then she is able to take the amazing stories she finds, jump into an edit and then translate them into compelling television shows.
I have the utmost respect for her as a Producer and as a person. She is amazing on so many levels and will undoubtedly be an asset to any production she joins.

I've had the pleasure of working with Evelien as a Producer for marketing/promo shoots ranging from a $10K-$100K budget while at NBCUniversal. No matter the budget, Evelien holds herself and the crew to a high standard and is able to quickly understand the overall creative vision and actively collaborate and execute on it. She also has the unique ability to establish a great rapport with talent and draw out the best from them. I can honestly say that Evelien is the only Producer I would (and did) hire to oversee shoots without my presence. More recently, I have worked with Evelien as a Photographer for press events for a cooking startup I head up marketing for. The same high standards, collaboration and her ability to capture the best moments are reflected in the end product (beautiful photos).

Having worked with Evelien in the past, I was lucky to think of her and Suburban Outlaw Productions when I got into a jam. Producing a series for PBS we lost an episode producer weeks before major shooting for the series began, I needed someone who could step in and take "ownership" of a few episodes on short notice. Suburban Outlaw Productions was seamless from pitching us potential stories and talent through locking in production details in three cities. Evelien fed us time saving workflow options and a wide range of talent to book from in pre-production. She worked on set not only when shooting her episodes, but in support of others as well and finally provided us with detailed notes during post. Working with Evelien I always knew the work was getting done and getting done well on her episodes, to the point where I knew I could concentrate on other work as she had everything under control. I'm looking forward to working with Suburban Outlaw Productions again.

I worked with Suburban Outlaw Productions to create an introductory video for my website. Evelien was thoughtful, collegial, professional, and a lot of fun through the entire process. I could tell right from our initial consultation that she truly wanted to make sure that the video represented my vision and the mission of my company. Evelien was forthright about the process and how we could make my company shine. She checked in with me multiple times to make sure that I was comfortable with how things were going. In the end, the video I received from Suburban Outlaw Productions was far beyond what I expected. It was warm, upbeat, and flowed naturally from one frame to the next. I had a wonderful time working with her and would strongly recommend her to anyone considering this type of project.

Evelien is truly a dedicated and experienced professional--she has been such a pleasure for me and my staff to work with on two important video projects for our organization. She is skilled at establishing rapport and putting her clients at ease when filming, whether she is working with a nervous CEO or a seasoned celebrity. She listens to and understands her client’s goals and vision, then adds her own suggestions, experts and special touch to produce exceptional work. Evelien is friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, and funny, and I recommend her highly as a video producer.

Evelien is a true artist and a rare talent. We’ve had various photographers take pictures of our family over the years, and our experience with Evelien is by far the best we’ve ever had. She creates beautiful images and has the ability to predict the special moments and capture them so perfectly. The color…the contrast…the scenery…the detail…it’s all effortless for her. The photos are incredible, and everyone who sees them comments on how beautiful they are. Beyond all that, Evelien is a joy to work with. She’s managed to tame our most rambunctious toddler and her photos reveal the core personalities of all her subjects. Whether it’s kids, babies, adults, animals, or just beautiful scenery…Evelien has THE gift. She has my highest recommendation.
Evelien’s enthusiasm and encouragement are inspiring. Her skills are second to none. The combination makes for a wonderful experience while the pictures are being taken and when she delivers the final product. I would recommend Evelien’s photography to anybody. Whether you are looking for pictures inside or out, posed or candid, formal or casual, Evelien is a wonderful photographer and a gem of a person.
Evelien is a true professional. While her photographic eye is artistic and exacting as well as her keen technical skill, I must say where she shines as a pet photographer is her palpable love of dogs! When she photographed my now 3-lb dog, she was an even tinier puppy who was nervous about a lot of things. Evelien was so calm and wonderful throughout the entire shoot. Ahava, my dog, was truly at ease and 'posed' for Evelien for nearly an hour. I consider Evelien a true "dog whisperer" with a passion and undeniable talent for photography. You will not be disappointed with the keepsakes she will produce for you and your pet family.

It's rare business to find someone this naturally talented and passionate about her work. Evelien seriously rocks! I had the most enjoyable session with her, filled with hilarity and ease. She's evidently skillful and her confidence resonated throughout our session. Evelien produced the most amazing head shots for my professional portfolio and I couldn't be more pleased. She will certainly be hearing from me to book future sessions. Thanks for an awesome time, Evelien!
After looking at just a few of the first shots Evelien took of me, I knew this was going to be a great shoot. By the time I left I was beaming with confidence and pure delight. I have never had a photo shoot that amazing. Evelien captured who I am in her pictures, all different sides of me. When I came to her with my vague ideas of what I wanted to do she understood me more than I did myself. The locations she found for me and her ideas were just what I was imagining. She made my shoot come to life! I have so many images I love and can use and yet I still want to shoot with her again because it was such a fun way to spend my afternoon. I can not recommend Evelien highly enough. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with her.
I'd initially hired Evelien to take holiday photos of my 4 year old son last year. After a brief discussion about my ideas, she immediately sent over some interesting suggestions on locations for our photo shoot. I was really excited about our final choice, Central Park! It was a perfect 60 degree day in November, 2014. My son Louis, goddaughter Kristen, and I enjoyed time together simply playing and enjoying the fresh air, while Evelien captured the most precious photos. I expressed to her on that very day, that it had been one of the greatest gifts of my life. She candidly documented such beautiful moments for my family to forever appreciate.
After my family lost our beloved dog Tyla this past August, I knew I wanted some distinct photos that would include our other fur baby, Spike. I knew exactly who I would ask! Evelien, always smiling and keeping things relaxed, came to our home and again, captured the love of our unique family. Louis and Spike were laid-back since we took the photos in such an informal way. The fact that Evelien was able to successfully manage my 5 year old son and 104 pound pit bull was amazing to watch; no fuss, no stress! The outcome was heartwarming and treasured. I only wish I had thought to do this while my Tyla was still here.
When I needed my annual holiday photos done this year, without hesitation, I called Evelien. This time, we came to her and she created a festive background for my son's pictures! Even though Louis was cranky and difficult, Evelien somehow manipulated great photos! I will continue to use Evelien for all of my family photographs and highly recommend her for any of your family members, whether they walk on two legs or four. She is both personable and professional and will leave you with amazing memories no matter what the scenario!
I had the pleasure of working with Evelien on a photo shoot with my Grandsons 11 and 13.
I was specific that I didn't want formal shots - with them in matching clothing and fresh haircuts. I wanted the 'real' them. I wanted them in clothes they selected and comfortable enough that their personalities showed through.
She nailed it.
My older guy is sweet warm and loving. His expression was soft and his kindness showed - it was who he is. My younger grandson is a bit of a ham. Always fooling around and somewhat outrageous in his thinking. He's straight up no matter if his opinion is appropriate or not. She absolutely captured his 'wise guy' personality - along with his warm and fuzzy side.
She handled 2 teen boys with ease and made them feel comfortable and confident. Evelien treated them with the same professionalism as she would if they were her celebrity clients.
I love the photos and it was a painless process with exceptional results. Evelien is a true professional.
My husband and I have 2 & 1/2 months old baby and Evelien gave us great direction on how to pose with the baby and helped us understand which setting works and which doesn't. She listened to our preferences and was quite understanding of our esthetics/style. At all times she put comfort of our baby first and was extremely professional. Furthermore she gave us a great variety of beautiful pictures within a matter of hours. We are looking forward to have her take pictures of our son in the future.

Evelien rocks. She came over to take pics of our one week old we were sleep deprived, exhausted and indecisive. Within minutes we felt comfortable letting her guide us through multiple outfit changes and areas of the house. The most important thing to her was capturing unique loving moments and the essence of our baby and our family's interactions together. She even got the cats involved!
Evelien was an absolute pleasure to work with. She came to our home and took amazing photos of our newborn son. The photographs were better than we could have ever hoped and now decorate our walls. Evelien was super nice and super helpful when taking the photos and directing our poses. We will definitely be utilizing her services again if we are blessed with more children.
Evelien's keen attention to detail and gentle demeanor with children enable her to capture those magical, priceless moments. She (Evelien) is a consummate professional who is passionate about her work and it shows.
With two young adults as kids and a hyper husband, getting our family in the same room to take pictures is never easy. Evelien made the experience stress free and fun while producing a professional product. Thanks Evelien for the beautiful pictures that our family will cherish forever!
