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.
Client -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!
Client - 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!!!!
Client - 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.
Client - Angie Clements
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.
Client - 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
Client - 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.
Client - Gretchen Miller
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
Client - Stacy Lind
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
Client - Tabatha Grider
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

Client - 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!
Client - 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.
Client - 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 tireslessly throughout the day to capture the perfect picture. I have always enjoyed working with Eric and look forward to our next project.

Client - Susan Hodges, Fitness Instructor- Lifetime Fitness
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.
Client - 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.
Client - 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 higly recommend him. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
Client - 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

Client - Rex Fitzgerald
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!

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.
Client - David Reyes
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!!!!!
Client - 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 highly recommend Eric to any company looking for a photographer who provides quality work and exceptional service.
Client - 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 lotof 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.
Client - 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.
Client - 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."
Client - Emilie Buske
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.
Client - Pix Smith
Thanks for making our show pictures creative and fun. People love them.
Client - Dr. Adams
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!
