He can take a simple picture and turn it into something AMAZING! I still have people asking who my photographer was !LOVED WORKING WITH ERIC!
Betina L (Bride)
Of all the vendors I worked with in planning my wedding, Eric was the best! He is so talented and passionate about his work! He really gets to know you and is great at getting you to relax and smile during your photo shoot. He's also a great communicator - he responds so quickly to questions!
Jess J (Bride)
All of Eric's business is word of mouth so that should tell you a little bit on how good he really is! I believe he was voted one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world recently and believe me it shows in his work. quite a few of my friends had used him as their photographer and not only were the images by far the best I've seen from start to finish, but his personality and charm really got the best out of my husband and I. We are very creative people and our search for a photographer was long and without much hope until we met Eric. We knew while talking to him at our wedding consultation he was our guy within minutes! If you want the best, and a true industry professional, you really need to view his portfolio because it doesn’t take long to see that he is unmatched based on his work!

Obviously this guy is one of the best the wedding industry has to offer based on his wall of awards and accolades but he is just such a sweetheart with a heart as big of Texas! I had to write in because of my excitement in regards to my Bridal images. Eric went out of his way to use his connections which allowed us to use a fabulous bed and breakfast in the cultural distract to shoot our bridal. The owner of the establishment seemed to wait hand and foot on Eric so I knew he must be doing something right! I had a unique request, I wanted part of my bridal to be in a boudoir style and was open to his ideas for this. He ended up having pedals, industrial fans (hair blowing effect) plus many other props delivered for my shoot. This is what I call high end! We spent about three hours shooting and I must say I didn't want it to end. We joked, laughed, even cried and I came away having a total understanding why he has the reputation that he does in the industry. The photos that we did during my shoot ended up being used in advertising, not only nationally but globally- and I have to admit that all of the pictures totally exceeded my expectations. The only bad part was that I wanted all of them so I did end up spending quite a bit, but I'm okay with that you only do this once :)
Eric has been a part of my "family" ever since he took pictures of my brothers and me in 2010. The pictures were a surprise Christmas gift for my parents, and we had a GREAT time shooting (even my teenage brothers, who were dragged along against their wills, loosened up and had a great time). Eric humored me greatly and let my 125 pound dog be a part of our shoot. Way to be patient my friend! :) When I got engaged in February 2012, I knew that my budget would be tight. I made the terrible mistake of going with a "cheaper" photographer, and my engagement photos were eh, okay. Nothing that special. I wanted AMAZING. So, we started searching and found Eric again. I have done my share of photographer shopping (as in days upon days and way too many emails to count), and I was thrilled that Eric was a) available for my October wedding and b) affordable! For real--don't shy away just because his pictures look amazingly expensive. They are amazing, AND they won't force you to blow your bank account. Win-win. Warning though--you are going to have a ridiculous time trying to decide which pictures are best. Eric went way beyond the regular point and shoot pictures. Anything I wanted, he was up for. He isn't afraid to dig in, move things around, and crawl on his belly for that awesome shot. We took so many great shots for my bridal shoot on a golf course that we had to drive back in the dark with only the light from our phones guiding us. On my wedding day, Eric showed up with an insane poison oak rash from a previous shoot. I thought he was toast, but I did not hear a single word of complaint. He and his awesome assistant Chris took over 1,300 pictures of my wedding, capturing every moment. Stop searching and just give Eric a call. He will give you straight-up answers to all your questions, and if he is your photographer, get ready. It will be awesome!

Eric was a pleasure to work with. I placed a very high priority on the photography of my only daughter's wedding and he exceeded all my expectations. My daughter wanted her wedding caught as candidly as possible and in a manner that reflected 'their' day particularly. We had some trouble with weather threatening our garden wedding, but Eric took full advantage of the angry looking sky so as to enhance the photos beautifully. They came across as powerful. He was patient and giving from the moment we booked him about a year in advance and remained so throughout the process. Eric has a wonderfully artistic eye and a playful spirit that enables him to often capture the absurdity that can surround weddings.:) I would heartily recommend him to anyone. He is reasonably priced - not the cheapest so as to give a prospective client concern over quality and not exorbitant either.

We ended up hiring Eric because we saw a magazine ad featuring his work while at a Barnes and Noble, His images just jumped off the page and when we read that he was in the Dallas Fort Worth Area we contacted him immediately. He was very polished in his service from the start to finish and I can't imagine our experience going any better than it did. I did my bridal portraits at a vintage factory and I was amazed at how prepared Eric and his team were in making sure that the session was as fun and smooth as possible. At one point Eric actually helped me fix my wedding shoes because the heel was damaged. I have to say that the photos we received from our wedding and bridal session as unbelievable. I showed all my friends my wedding album and they couldn't believe the quality and the amount of poses that we achieved. I believe that we hired the most creative photographer in the DFW area or perhaps anywhere. One of the things that really stood out to me was his knowledge of lighting. I was amazed at how beautiful he made me look, my mother and I cried the whole time we viewed the images at his office. I'm just in love with his work he's a mad genius!
Everything went perfect from the initial consultation to the delivery of my prints and albums. My family and I were very picky on whom we chose to shoot the wedding, bridals and engagement photos, because a couple of us are professional photographers and we know just how challenging a wedding can be. Based on Eric's long list of accomplishments in the industry we decided that he had to be our photographer. When we first started looking for a photographer we were very frustrated but once we met with Eric our frustration quickly turned into exhilaration. He delivered on every level and exceeded our exceptions at every turn. Without sounding biased let me just say that if you're looking for creative, colorful and timeless cool images then look no further. I was very impressed with his proofing setup as well, Eric had a beautiful office setup with a large screen so that we could see all of our images in great detail and he had no problem spending hours with us even though he wasn't being compensated for his time. Choosing our images to be printed was easy and he held our hand throughout the entire process. I have since recommended him to a few of my friends who are all using him for their upcoming weddings. I just can't give him enough stars.
Mary H (Mother of Bride)
We couldn't of been more thrilled with working with Eric he is a true professional. Originally we had booked the Bass Hall in downtown Fort Worth for our daughters wedding, and this is where we found out about Eric because he was their preferred photographer. Naturally we called him, and he was very cordial and polite on the phone and his explanations in regards to his packages were simple and to the point. We were even able to sign our contract online with little or no hassle which was awesome because our family is very busy. He delivered our photos via an online gallery which even had a separate password for friends so that we could block photos that we didn't want them to see. We thought this was very nifty! The pictures exceeded our expectations, they were just incredible. We're so glad we upped our budget and hired Eric it was the best move we ever made. During our initial consultation we were a bit taken aback because he did exceed our budget but he made a good point in saying that once the wedding was over, and the cake is gone, the only thing left will be the photos and we owed it to ourselves to invest in the best photography. He wasn't pushy at all, just informative. He books up quick so make sure you contact him as early as possible. Be sure to tell him that Mary H sent you.
Eric B (Groom)
Eric Younkin's website caught the attention of my wife and I, as soon as we encountered it! His pictures have a style and look that many other wedding photographers are lacking. Don't get me wrong-other photographers that we looked into had some talent, but it was like comparing minor league vs. major league baseball! (And I don't even care much for sports)! Mr Younkin shot our engagement, bridal, and wedding pictures, and did an outstanding job each time that we met up with him. He has a way of making his client's feel at ease, and directs their poses and looks with the grace of someone who has been at his craft for many years. As a matter of fact, he is formally educated and has a degree in photography from a prestigious school in New York, and it truly shows. He takes his time, takes a large variety of pictures, and edits them masterfully, creating works of art that you will be proud to hang on the wall of your home. On the wedding day, Mr Younkin and his assistant Chris arrived to the venue a few hours prior to the venue's starting time, so that they could scout out all of the angles that they wanted to get covered. Everything during the wedding happened gracefully, and the photographers did an amazing job, with each of them shooting from different angles. We couldn't have been happier with our pictures! I also wanted to point out that Mr Younkin provides extremely beautiful products to purchase, and they seem to be "high end," from acrylic pictures to hang on your wall, to metal prints, to gallery wraps and an assorted of options for your wedding album. He really goes out of his way to give you the best product that he can and told us that he uses the best company for his products that he is aware of (the company is called "Millers"). All in all, my wife and I are extremely happy with the outstanding work that Mr Younkin provided, and highly recommend him any chance that we get. I'm pretty sure that he barely has to even worry about his business, because so many happy customers are spreading the good word to all of their friends. I hope that this review helps. Please trust me-this guy is a professional in a land that contains many self-taught advanced hobbyists! Eric's office is laid back, and he makes you feel at home, and lets you pick out your pictures on a large flat screen tv, or sometimes he will have you select your pictures from a server, from the comfort of your own home. His pictures look better, and you may think "man, this guys pictures are so polished/lit/arranged/edited so well that I don't know if I can afford him!!" I know, because I had that same thought. I'm so thankful that my wife wanted to just try him out. His prices are similar to other photographers, and he lets you purchase as much cool stuff as you can get your hands on. After all, these memories only happen once. Don't you want to have them preserved and backed up in the best fashion possible? I do, and am grateful that we chose Mr Younkin. Thank you for reading my lengthy review, and for your time. :-)
My husband and I got married last August and we had the great pleasure of hiring Eric to capture all the moments of our special day! From the first time we met with Eric, his passion for photography was obvious. Eric was extremely meticulous when it came to his technique and the quality of the photographs he took. It didn't matter if he was taking engagements shots or up at the front of the sanctuary capturing the moment when we said "I do", all of his images were amazing. Eric has a natural gift when it comes to taking an ordinary street, building, field, or pretty much anything and turning it into the perfect setting for a photo shoot. Another thing I really liked about working with Eric was that he was also open to our suggestions and opinions. Some photographers/artists are so into their vision of things that they fail to remember whose day this really is. We never had that problem with Eric. In fact, Eric always tried to make the shoot as relaxing and fun as possible. He liked to take his time to get the "perfect" shot instead of just rushing through to get a bunch of average shots. Bottom line is that his work is amazing! His talent is extraordinary! And my husband and I are extremely grateful to have had him there to capture everything. We all know that weddings are not cheap. But it is my belief that you get what you pay for and I want to have the best memories of our special time that will last a lifetime. You can skimp on a few areas of your wedding, but your choice in photographers should not be one of them!! With Eric Younkin as your photographer, you'll never have any regrets where your pictures are concerned!!!
I came across Eric's photographs while looking at a particular wedding chapel. Every time I saw an absolutely gorgeous, artistic shot of a couple at that venue - one that I envisioned myself and husband being in - it had Eric's logo on it. That eventually lead me to his website where I was even more amazed at the quality and beauty of his work. I had already 'interviewed' almost all the photographers at a local bridal expo and looked at numerous other photography websites - none of their work really jumped out at me like Eric's did. I knew I had to work with this guy! We were already on a tight budget but after meeting with Eric and realizing we could make it work, we signed the contract with him to do an engagement session, bridal session and the wedding photography. Surprisingly, he was more affordable than several of the other wedding photographers I had spoken with and he had more experience and better quality work than they did. Photography was something that was very important to me for my wedding - I have taken several photography classes and am the "photographer" for the rest of my family. Unfortunately, no one else in my family seems to know how to handle a camera as when I am the subject it is always blurry, too far, too close, etc. After speaking with Eric and seeing his work, I felt very, very comfortable with Eric being my photographer for "the most important day of my life". Needless to say, all of our images from our engagement, bridal and wedding were absolutely breath-taking, artistic masterpieces. Eric is very gifted at what he does. He also spends a lot of time on each session so you know he's putting a lot in to it! I will suggest that you bring your ideas to him (no matter how crazy or wacky, we had a few) and he will somehow make it happen!!!! My husband and I had a great time shooting the photos with Eric and absolutely love the final products. But you don't have to take my word for it - go check out his website and images and see for yourself. I guarantee you will never look at another wedding photo the same again.

I have been involved in so many weddings over decades that when I finally decided to marry, I made a point to be the anti-Bridezilla. This wedding was to be a fun but high-profile celebrity wedding. I wasn't going to feel obligated to do anything that would take the spontaneity out of the occasion or turn it into a circus. I took notice of Eric Younkin's photography through his FB page and his site. I was very pleased to find his versatility in such a niche industry. He's talented, professional, takes his time when you need him to and quick on his feet. He has a fantastic sense of design, contrast, shape and urgency. He was a perfect fit for the role. Just moments after our rehearsal dinner, TMZ had gotten wind of the event, so we made sure that the photos they used were Eric's. I had sought a bit of guidance on this and other wedding sites beforehand so, I wanted to give some helpful feedback. Thank you, Eric Younkin Photography we will highly recommend you to brides to be and wedding planners. Margo Rey & Ron White
Charel W (Bride)
My first encounter with Eric was very pleasant. My husband and I met with him in his office, and i knew right away that he was the photographer for us. Eric is very friendly, laid back, and at the same time very professional. He did my bridals and wedding. For the bridals, I didnt have a place in mind but Eric knew Fort Worth like the back of his hand and chose places that no regular person would choose. He has a keen eye for art, lighting, and what would be beautiful in a portrait. I totally let him use his creativity and my pictures came out beautifully. Unfortunately, I couldnt afford any prints, but it wasn't because they were outragely priced, just not in my budget. For the wedding, Eric was awesome. I have viewed my pictures and I love them. If you want someone to capture your day, with high quality photos, that you can cherish forever, Eric is your man. He uses top notch equipment, and he knows how to use it. There are many photographers out there and anyone can use a camera, but if you want someone who understands lighting, angles, cameras, editing, etc. go with Eric!!
Lacy R (Bride)
I first met Eric in Las Vegas where he was teaching a workshop on Bridal lighting and being a female photographer I was stunned at his style and energy so I asked for his card. I called him a couple of weeks later and we booked him on the spot because he was so over and beyond any of the other local photographers we met with. His work is that of a true artist and he is one funny and entertaining person. My bridal session ended up in a national lighting magazine and I actually got paid which was a nice little side perk to doing business with the amazing artist. One of the things he won't tell you is that he was voted one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by Modern Bride Magazine... I want to go on record as letting that cat out of the bag. His prices are more than fair for what you receive so I would look no further and make sure Eric Younkin is your first stop. He even helped me fix my dress which got messed up the day of my wedding! He knew just what to do to fix that zipper that decided to stick :)
I decided to use Eric Younkin after many weeks of research and reviews of all my local (even west coast based) photographers. I am from Los Angeles and my profession in the publishing world has given me the opportunity to work with well known photographers. After viewing Eric's work there wasn't any doubt that he was to be my photographer. His work speaks for its self. I would compare his lighting and skill set to that of world famous photographers some of which I have had the pleasure to work with. Eric's demeanor is easy going and friendly. He is wonderful to work with and my guests were continuously commenting on how lovely he was throughout the evening. My husband said that his photos were the best part of our wedding and I agree. I would highly recommend Eric and his entire team. If you want to have photos that are not your usual "cookie cutter" prints .. he is your man. His imagination and creativity are so unique that I couldn't have dreamed of working with a more talented photographer. Thank you Eric !!! Thank you for giving me the greatest joy of memories that I will cherish a lifetime. Charlie S.
Katie Y (Bride)
AMAZING!!! He is the best photographer! Eric sees things that no one else does and captures great moments. He is wonderful to work with and makes sure that you get everything that you want for the big day. He is organzied and made us feel so calm and comfortable when he is shooting. We are so glad we went with Eric for the big day because we know beyond a doubt that we will have GREAT pictures!
I absolutely love Eric! He was my photographer for three of my events; a couples shower, my rehearsal dinner, and my wedding. I wish I had more events for him to shoot because he was absolutely amazing and all my guests were thrilled by his work as well as his personality while shooting! My wedding was initially an outdoor wedding but when the day was filled with more rain than Texas has ever gotten he was able to keep everything together and get amazing photos, he is an amazing photographer. Anyone who needs a photographer needs to choose Eric because he will not disappoint you.
Fifi N (Bride)
If you haven't checked out his website, you should! He is amazing at capturing the artistry and the moment. We were very happy to book him as our photographer. And although we just had our wedding not too long ago, I know he'll do great work to make our photos beautiful! Eric was great on the wedding day and took time even to take photos from family members who missed the family photo time we set up. He is very thorough and explains the process so there isn't any confusion or worry that you would get hit with hidden charges or fees. Definitely recommend him considering him for your wedding!
Taylor R (Bride)
Picking Eric was absolutely wonderful! I have known I wanted Eric to photograph my wedding for about 5 years now. He did such a fantastic job. He did everything he could to get all the shots I wanted and with perfection. I have an extremely large crazy family and Eric was very patient with us and kept us in line. I am so thrilled with how amazing our pictures turned out. I could not imagine having used anyone else to capture one of the most special days in our lives! Thank you so much Eric for giving us amazing quality pictures to look back and remember how special that day was for us!
Stefani N (Bride)
Picking Eric as my photographer was one of the few easy decisions I've made thus far as a bride. He's most importantly personable and honest which is super important to me. His artist ability speaks for itself in his pictures and I couldn't be more pleased with my selection. His work is five stars yet he still acts like a humble guy that lets you know his work is affordable for just about anyone. That's what I love the most about working with Eric is he's real and genuine! I know my wedding in March is in good if not great hands with Eric and his team. He's highly responsive to emails or texts and does what he can for his brides to make everything exactly what you are wanting!
If you are looking for an artist to do photography look NO MORE!!! He is beyond amazing and a natural at capturing the most unique moments. I was blown away by my bridal pictures and I can't WAIT to see my wedding ones too!!! Thank you Eric for blessing our lives with your
ability to tell our story!!!
As my fiancée and I began planning our wedding we very quickly came to the realization that planning such an event is daunting. There are numerous decisions to make, multiple things to coordinate, items to purchase, vendors to research/contact/interview etc. Of all these
things, the one thing that stood out the most in our discussions was the photos! We absolutely wanted a skilled photography there to capture (in photos) our big day so that we (and our families) could look upon them to remember our big day in the years to come, and I think the reason for this is simple – the photos are the one thing you can take with you. That said, we found that photographer in Eric Younkin. His artistry with the camera is amazing, he is no doubt a master of his craft. On top of capturing 100s of awesome photos, he is flexible, punctual, kind, funny and the utmost professional. Throughout the process, I think he began to sense that we were beginning to feel a little overwhelmed by it all, and in response to that he’d often say “just know that I am the one vendor you don’t need to worry about, you will be very pleased with my work and the results”. Okay, that was the long version! Now here's the short version: For your photography needs, you NEED to higher Eric Younkin!!!

Sarah & Scott Geer
Eric and his team are gifted in so many ways - they were able to juggle the logistical challenges, the fast pace and the sentimentality of our wedding day to produce amazing photos. Eric's strong technical background is apparent in his lighting, composition and editing - we had a rainy day (all indoor photos) and a reception hall with a low ceiling, but he overcame those challenges with ease. Eric encouraged us to get creative with some artistic poses, which provided a great variety of photos and produced some truly unique shots. In addition, he and his team did a great job of capturing candid photos and key moments without ever seeming "in the way." Eric has an incredibly positive attitude which helped me feel relaxed on our big day - he was really present in the moment which made it so easy to work with him and connect with him to make our photos special. Thanks to both Eric and Chris for helping us capture memories that will last a lifetime!
Katie Olson (Bride)
Eric was an amazing photographer! Coming from the BRIDE this has to mean something, since these pictures are going to be the only thing I have to remember from my special day other than memories! I can’t get over how obsessed I am with his work. My pictures are incredible and seriously his work is the finest I have ever seen!!! His pictures are the kind that when people see them… they want to know who your photographer was; they are like no other wedding, bridal or engagement pictures you have seen before! He really captures a moment you would never have thought would look so good in a picture. The BEST part about Eric was he made every moment fun and enjoyable; he really made sure I was happy with each picture he took! I am defiantly referring him to everyone I know!!
Nancy Shaffer (Mother of Groom)
We are so happy with all the engagement, bridal, and wedding photos! Eric was easy and fun to work with--he kept the photo shoots from getting boring. His attention to the fine details show in his pics. He has such a unique creative flair. Over the years I've seen many wedding photo albums; I think Tim & Krystal's photos are the best. Mr. Younkin was always on time for our appointments and far exceeded our expectations in what a photographer should be. He took so many photos we had a tremendous selection from which to choose (I want them all!)
Maria Knowles Burnett
After our initial consultation with Eric, we were so impressed with his enthusiasm and spectacular bridal images, we doubled our investment for photography and hallelujah are we happy we did. I cannot say enough about Eric and his photographic skills. He seems to be everywhere at once, never the same place twice and never in the way. I could not fathom a more charming and personable photographer, this man certainly knows his way around a wedding and he will be our choice for all photography needs in the future. Thank you so much Eric, your talent has given us a lifetime of exquisite viewing memories and pleasure.
Morgan Hammet Moore
I am SO happy that you were our photographer. My bridal portraits are simply amazing and our wedding pictures are incredible! I could not be happier with the quality of work and level of comfort when you shoot. It was like you weren't there and yet you managed to captured the whole day and every little detail surrounding it. I was literally reliving the day as I looked through the pictures. I can't wait to see what you do with the album! We will definitely use you as our family grows and I'll be sure to recommend you to everyone I know. Thank you so much for everything!
Rachel and Russell McCarty
My husband and I attended a Bridal Show in Dallas Texas in search of venders of all types. While in the photography department there were a few to choose from, our choice was made easy when we met Eric Younkin. Immediately into our conversation with Eric, my husband and I knew there was no other choice for us. Between his creativity and our chemistry we knew he was the man for the job. Not only was he wonderful to work with and made the shoots fun, but seeing his beautiful work make us lifers :) When we see our engagement and wedding pictures we are overwhelmed at his remarkable eye!!!! We plan on using his talents in our future photos and can't wait to get to work with him again. Thanks again Eric it was a pleasure getting our pictures taken by you!!! We miss you!!!!
Father of the Bride - Bill Hamilton
Our daughter Katie selected Eric from a dozen highly recommended wedding photographers. After meeting with Eric and viewing his portfolio firsthand, the choice was a no-brainer. We expected great work and ultimately received artistic excellence from a true professional. What a joy to have found one who cares so much about his craft and his clients, we will certainly recommend him in the future. I was so delighted with Eric's abilities he has been contracted by our firm for commercial work.
I've never thought of myself as a photogenic person but after seeing my wedding pictures that Eric took WOW, was I wrong! Neither my husband nor I have had professional pictures taken so the first word that came to mind was, uncomfortable?? Wrong again! Eric made it a fun and enjoyable experience, even my husband had fun! Eric and I spoke and emailed on numerous occasions prior to my wedding, when we finally met I felt as if I had known him for years. He took the time to get to know me and ask questions about my husband to get a better understanding of who he would be meeting. I think the shots he chose to take of us worked out perfect because he knew our personalities and what settings we would lookmost natural in. Eric's photography is amazing and he himself is someone I will call a friend from here on out.
Brittani Bruton Purdy
when my husband and I started to plan our wedding, we wanted to find a photographer with an edgy, but classy style with a great personality to match. The first photographer we met with was Eric, and after our meeting we knew there was no reason to meet with anyone else! Eric was, and did everything we wanted and more! Any time we were doing a shoot with him it felt more like we were just hanging out with a friend. I can't say enough about the beautiful and artistic photos that we will have for a lifetime all thanks to the wonderful job that Eric did.
Brides Online Magazine- Susan Rucker
Thanks for the wonderful spread for our new breakaway bouquets, your creativity was inspiring hopefully Roger will have you come back soon to take our much needed head shots.
Being a southern belle I was worried that my wedding was taking place on the other side of the world. My fiancee now husband was stationed in Europe and he really wanted to get married in France so my family and I planned a beautiful French wedding at the Chateau de Villette right outside of Paris. Our first priority was finding the right photographer. We wanted someone who was very artistic and adventurous because we wanted some very interesting things. When we first mentioned the idea to Eric he was super excited because he has spent lots of time in Europe and felt he could capture it with a unique fervor and enthusiasm. We went ahead and booked him based on his huge portfolio and wonderful personality. All the photos that he took are among some of the best I have ever seen he way exceeded all of our exceptions. Now with our first child on the way we are already thinking of ways for Eric to photograph our little one
I knew I wanted something different for my wedding and I was worried sick I wouldn't be comfortable with the typical photographer. Based on a recommendation from a friend who was married at the Piazza in the village told me about Eric. I'm so glad she did because he went over and beyond the call of duty to make sure my every need was taken care of. The images were out of this world and have to be seen to be believed. I was even more excited to find out that the photos from my bridal session were featured in Modern Bride Magazine! If you want the best you should call Eric
Eric is one of the most amazing people I've ever met. Not only did he do the impossible and please me with his extraordinary wedding images he also met me while I was trying on dresses to give me his expert opinion on what he thought looked best. I will never use another photographer
Rachel Daniels - DS News
Thanks again for your great work, we were very pleased with the final result and your high-level of professionalism. We will definitely keep you in mind for the future.
Heather Imada- Model
Thank you so much for such a wonderful photography session experience. Your professionalism and enthusiasm was inspiring. The pictures turned out so great it was hard to choose my head shot. I am looking forward to working with you again on future projects.
Gina Kaup- Engagement Photo Session
Just wanted to thank you so much for everything. The pictures turned out to be more than what I expected. All the pictures look great, especially the piggy back ones and the swinging gate ones. Thanks again!
Gary & Rene Polk Wedding
Hands down Eric is the best wedding photographer I could have hoped to find. Not only did he capture breathtaking images at every turn he also managed to make us smile while doing it! I researched many other photographers before deciding on Eric. He was the only one who genuinely seemed to really care about our big day as much as we did! If you're looking for a high end wedding photographer who doesn't charge high end prices you should look no further than Eric. His creativity is second to none.
Gene Almy, Director of Marketing of Texas Ballet Theater
Eric did a fantastic job in a recent photo shoot for our upcoming 2009-2010 Season. He has a great eye for detail, and worked tirelessly throughout the day to capture the perfect picture. I have always enjoyed working with Eric and look forward to our next project.
BJ Cleveland, Artistic Director of Theatre Arlington
Our Marketing and P.R. material for our organization has taken on a professional polish since using Eric Younkin's photography. He is a consummate professional working with students, professionals and the public and we continue to increase our visibility by using him and his work in all of our endeavors.
Darcy Koch, PR & Media Relations- Casa Manana
Casa Manana has had great experiences working with Eric. The pictures turn out great, the lighting is impeccable and his punctuality is greatly appreciated in the theater business.

Eric has a gift. He's young, he's edgy, he's talented. My photo shoot with Eric was so much fun, while being absolutely professional. I love the edginess and style he brings to his craft. After having experienced the quality of his work, I will always return to him. You don't always know what he's doing for or what he see's through his photographers eye, just go with it, he knows what he's doing. The end product of his efforts were phenomenal. What an experience, I will treasure my portfolio for a life time.
Lita Smith, Senior/Model
My Photo shoot with Eric Younkin was professional, yet fun filled experience. He is a hip and optimistic guy. I felt very relaxed the whole time and when I found difficulty in how to pose, his commentary was most helpful. His work is extremely edgy and unlike any other photographer I've seen thus far. Right away he knew how exactly to photography me the best. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for someone to photograph their senior pictures or even take their head shots.
Kim Goad, Yoga Instructor- Lifetime Fitness
Eric is a fantastic photographer and artist. He has top quality equipment and he's passionate about what he does. The shoot was fun and professional. I could not be happier with my photos and I highly recommend him. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
Shane Strawbridge, Actor/Director
Having your head shots taken by Eric is a real treat. He made sure that I understood all of my options as well as all of the techniques that he brings to the table. I felt very comfortable from the very beginning of the shoot through to the final touch-up. For the first time, I am confident in what my head shot says about me. I highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for a great head shot experience
Callan Hamann, General Manager Holiday Inn
Thank you for your pictures during our Grand Opening Party at the Holiday Inn Dallas Market Center. We appreciate your work and making our hotel come alive for our potential clients. Pictures tell 1000 words and in a multi-media age; this is even more true .
Mr. Younkin far exceeded our expectations and gave us way more than promised. The Bridal portrait he did for my daughter was something right out of a glamor magazine, I have since recommended him to all my friends.
I wasted over $300 working with two other Photographers before one of my friends told me about Eric. It was great finally working with someone who really takes pride in making his subjects look great! I'm happy to say I'm getting cased in commercials left and right now thanks to Eric and his amazing skills.
What a Gentleman you are Eric! I was amazed at how you put my family at ease before taking our photos we really loved the way gave us all your undivided attention. Our family portrait is proudly hanging up above the Fireplace where everyone can see it.

Eric is a fun and visionary photographer. All my experiences with him have always been great, he does his best to make every client comfortable and feel right at home. I definitely recommend him to everyone.
Eric came into town to shoot a show I was performing in, CATS. He did some before shots, me getting into make-up, cast meetings, dancers warming up and so on, to get the before show feel. The shots he took during the show were INCREDIBLE!!! He had never seen our production but he knew when and where to get the best shot!! We had a staff photographer who shoots all the shows and Eric blew him away! Most of my cast ordered Eric's pictures instead of the regular guys stuff. This guy ROCKS!!!!!
Julie, Dave & Tyson Reyes
Eric came to our home to take a new family portrait for us. We had recently adopted a baby boy and needed new family pictures. He shot them in our backyard on our hammock with our KC Royals gear on. The lighting was perfect, the colors fabulous and the creative shots and angles were incredible! He even did some pictures of me and my dog who recently passed. These photos are very dear to me and I thank him for preserving my and my Jessie! He is friendly, professional and even comical! A true joy to work with and have in our home!We can't wait to get him back and take new pictures of our growing family!!!.

I am privileged to work with Eric Younkin, our park photographer since 2006. Not only does he provide beautiful photography, he is always professional and continually exceeds my expectations.

Tracy Underwood, Ph.D.
I needed professional photos for my business website. I had some specific ideas about background and setting. Eric was very flexible in allowing me to create the ambiance that I wanted. He also made a lot of creative suggestions that resulted in photos that I am very proud of. He continued to be of assistance even after our photo shoot was over by offering help with photo modifications, size, placement, etc. I am grateful to Eric and will rely on his expertise,professionalism and guidance in future projects.
Darla N. Briggs, Marketing and Events CBS Radio.
Eric you did an amazing job photographing my family. I had not had a family portrait made in several years because most studios had bad outdated props and the poses were generic and boring to say the least. You are an entirely different photographer!! The lighting and angles you used were so unique and made for outstanding shots. You really took photography to a new level and put my faith back into professional portraits. Not only were the photos great but you had the ability to keep it interesting for my 3 and 10 yr. old boys. Your work is creative and unique and your love for your career shows in your quality work. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
Cindy Honeycutt, Theatre Arlington
The pictures that Eric Younkin has taken of our children's programs are beautiful! He has a unique eye and flair for the creative, giving our audiences and parents a good idea of what they'll be getting when attending a show or enrolling a child. He's also incredibly easy to work with, taking his time and getting the right picture every time. I would not want to work with another photographer in our education program!
Zach Hopkins, Hollywood Actor (No Country for Old Men)
"Working with Eric is an actor's treat. Meaning you have to do very little work to get a great shot. Typically with head shots, photographers spend a lot of time trying to adjust for the right light and talk you into the right angles, but Eric just talks to you; laughs with you. It sets you at ease and allows you to relax; thus giving him the chance to snap you in your truest form. Which is what serves best for a marketable head shot. He doesn't tell you when he's going to shoot, he just talks, laughs and snaps when he see what works. It's a technique usually reserved for fashion photography. I've had my share of head shots and I've received more compliments from the one taken by Eric than any other. One of the best compliments came from Mary Zophres, Costume Designer on No Country for Old Men. Her words, "That's a great shot, very striking! It caught my eye the first time I saw it." That meant a lot coming from someone who was the Costume Designer for projects such as Lions for Lambs; O Brother, Where Art Thou?; Catch Me If You Can; and Any Given Sunday, just to name a few. She's seen a lot of head shots. Bottom line, if you're looking for a killer head shot, Eric's your guy. I'd recommend him to anyone."
Eric is a thoughtful and creative photographer. He works with the environment and subjects to create a unique and lasting image. Not only is he great to work with, his photographs are timeless, interesting and always end up than I could have imagined. Eric is the most creative and charming photographer I have ever worked with. In his work at Theatre Arlington, his images absolutely jump off the page in all of our marketing tools - posters, newspaper ads, website, etc. He is an important resource for the theater and has been as invaluable asset to our marketing strategies.
Thanks for making our show pictures creative and fun. People love them.
What an amazing Photographer you are Eric! Finally my wife was happy with the family photos for a change- she was going on and on about how great you were with the kids! Good luck rubbing shoulders with all those Hollywood types- and let me know if you can get me on the red carpet next time for all those up close and personals with Sandra Bullock!.
Merilou Barnekow (Beachside Property Owner)
Did you know that Eric Younkin performs magic? Really. Eric took pictures of my vacation rental beach house and my rentals jumped to 100% during high season. A great return on a relatively small investment..
Kevin Kim (Actor/Cafe Owner)
Eric is a true artist! He understands each subject he works with and makes he or she or it feel comfortable to bring out the best in their photos. He has done my headshot, my daughter's headshot, and Bolsa our wine bar and cafe. He is a genius and great guy to work with and be around. Keep up the great work Eric!
Courtney (Professional Model)
My daughter is a professional model and has worked with "the best"! After shooting with Eric, we received the best pictures thus far and the entire experience was very professional and comfortable. I would recommend Eric to anyone! Lisa and Courtney Arlington, TX 2008

Eric is a fun and visionary photographer. All my experiences with him have always been great, he does his best to make every client comfortable and feel right at home. I definitely recommend him to everyone.
work is five stars yet he still acts like a humble guy
that lets you know his work is affordable for just about anyone. That's
what I love the most about working with Eric is he's real and genuine! I
know my wedding in March is in good if not great hands with Eric and
his team. He's highly responsive to emails or texts and does what he can
for his brides to make everything exactly what you are wanting!
