Ethan's niche in photography stems from his background in film from Maryland Institute College of Art and his abiding passion for the arts. He has the ability to capture moments as if they were stills from a film and he approaches his work with the utmost diligence and detail. Perhaps these traits pay homage to the training he received while serving in the United States Marine Corp, or perhaps they are innate. Nonetheless, his work aims to exhibit its own beautiful story.

His story is far from the ordinary and resembles a modern day fairy tale. He married his high school sweetheart, Karis, of whom he met in the ninth grade and dated for over thirteen years. It is their story that inspires him to create pictures reflecting love. He has been to numerous weddings in the past few years and dedicates his time in providing his clients with unforgettable memories.

Aside from taking pictures for weddings, he is notably involved in the movie industry. He has worked on HBO's The Wire, Step Up 2, Eagle Eye, Night at the Museum 2, Salt and is currently working on his third experimental movie. Read less

Ethan and Karis are so talented, it's ridiculous! I saw their work featured on a DC wedding blog, and, right away, I knew that we had to have them photograph our wedding! I convinced my husband to splurge on photography, and it was the best decision we made! Any words I could use to describe EYP's work could never begin to describe how brilliant they are; visit the website and you'll learn all you need to know from even a quick glimpse at their photos! I can say that what attracted me most to Ethan's style of photography was his ability to capture the most candid and emotional moments in a way that is still incredibly artistic and anything but ordinary.

As for Ethan and Karis, they are two of the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful people, and they are so easy to work with! We had engagement photos shot about a year before our wedding, and it was the perfect way to get to know both Ethan and Karis and become comfortable with working in front of the camera. Although a year had passed between the engagement photos and the wedding, it was like no time had passed at all, and we immediately fell into a comfortable rhythm again. They were completely unobtrusive at the wedding, but I noticed one of them was always on hand to capture a laugh or a hug with a friend. They poured a ton of work into our wedding, staying with us until the very end of the evening to take a few photos with just my husband and me, and it was such a special way to end the evening.

What can we say...Ethan is the best photographer in the area...bar none. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. He was prompt, responsive, flexible, assertive, and most importantly, a visionary. Every single wedding shot he took was purposeful and captured the moment exactly as it was meant to be captured. No matter the lighting or scenario, he would craft art from it. We challenged him to make our wedding shots the best he's ever done, and we are confident that he has done that. But since he is still growing as a photographer, we know that will only last until his next event. His work speaks for itself, but the people behind the work are even better. Ethan and Karis were a joy to work with, and we would have many more weddings just to work with him again (we won't though :)). We are sad we couldn't have even MORE pictures taken by him, but we just ran out of time.The best in the MD/DC/VA area, and we would argue, the East Coast.

Ethan and Karis were incredibly warm and professional from start to finish. We had both our engagement and wedding photos taken by him. He is super in demand, but was luckily free the weekend of our wedding.

We are two of the least photogenic people in the world, but Ethan made us feel comfortable and was able to get great shots of us. He was really able to capture the moment and had great ideas regarding backgrounds, outfit choices, etc. On the day of, he was able to efficiently coordinate my family and bridal party to take our portraits. The edited photos we have seen so far are stunning. He was also very flexible given our time constraints. We had an early morning ceremony and afternoon reception, so he used time before, between and after to ensure we had enough pictures.

Overall
Pros: professional, warm, flexible, excellent quality
Cons: none

Before I even got engaged, I knew that I wanted Ethan Yang to photograph my wedding. I saw the pictures he took for a friend's wedding, and they were so artistic and unlike anything I had seen from other wedding photographers. Ethan truly has a wonderful eye, and knows how to use light in the best way (especially for dim, indoor venues). Aside from his talent, Ethan is also incredibly warm, cheerful, and enthusiastic, which made the photo session on the wedding day fun and quick! Ethan is also a self admitted perfectionist - and he stayed until the very end of the reception so that he could get all of the shots he wanted. As an added bonus, Ethan's wife (and often 2nd shooter) Karis is wonderful as well!

There are very few wedding photographers who can capture the emotion, excitement, and experience like Ethan. When looking for a photographer, we were immediately drawn to Ethan’s style, framing, composition, and overall aesthetic (check out his website to see his work!). His ability to see beyond the obvious results in an artistic representation of the entire day.

Where some photographers see obstacles, Ethan sees filters and focal points. Shooting through wine glasses on a table, he gives shots an ethereal halo and using the roof of a car, the photo is grounded against a bright blue arc. The depth of field he’s able to achieve and his use of afternoon sunlight (his favorite!) is impeccable. Each wedding he shoots is unique because he uses his current surroundings, and you’re not left with your typical wedding photo.

We also used EYP for our engagement photos and valued the time not only documenting that part of our story but also getting to know Ethan and Karis. It definitely made a difference when it came to our wedding day. We learned Ethan’s tricks for helping us look natural and grew comfortable in front of the camera. Unfortunately Karis wasn’t able to be at our wedding, but Ethan filled the role with a good friend of his who is also a professional photographer. While we missed Karis greatly, Mark did a wonderful job filling in. As another review said, you don’t even know that Ethan is around. He was able to capture every moment and get up close during our ceremony but not at the expense of our guests, wedding party, or pastor.

We would highly recommend EYP for any bride/groom.

We are SO happy to have worked with Ethan for our wedding photographs. Finding a photographer was one of our most important decisions so it means so much to us to be able to say that we are incredibly happy and thankful to have the pictures Ethan was able to capture for our wedding.

Our photographs tell a candid story of our special day, portraying the joyful emotions that were involved, the details that brought the personal nature of our wedding to life, and the celebratory atmosphere from beginning to end.

Another reason why we loved working with Ethan is because he was able to put us at ease before and during the wedding day, naturally making us trust that he knew what he was doing. He was at the same time extremely professional and easy to get along with. We would enthusiastically and without regret recommend him to all of our family and friends. Thank you, Ethan and Karis!

I have one word for you - AMAZING! My husband are I were completely overwhelmed with excitement and awe with the photos Ethan took! Everything turned out absolutely perfect! Each picture takes us back to a different moment. I wish we could do it all over again. Ethan and Karis are truly masters of their craft. We are thrilled! I literally don't have words to describe how happy we are with their work. Ethan takes the most incredible pictures and is so fun and easy to work with. As someone who usually avoids the camera he made me truly beautiful. They are worth every penny!

EYP is absolutely incredible!!! Ethan and Karis are so easy to work with. They shot both our engagement and wedding, and both are just absolutely beautiful! They went out of their way to make sure they could work with our schedules and restrictions. Ethan was amazing at making both of us and our bridal party feel at ease and comfortable and it really shows in the pictures. The girls commented how great Ethan's personality was, always making us laugh and giving us easy instructions for each picture. They stayed late for us on our wedding so that we could get pictures with the Capital building. Ethan, we can't thank you enough for everything you've done for us. The photos are absolutely perfect and we'll cherish them forever!!! xoxo

Ethan Yang Photography is truly the best of the best! He has an artistic ability to capture moments that are uniquely amazing. His creative style is like non other and his pictures truly tell a story that brings out a flood of happy emotions. Our first meeting with Ethan was awesome! He was so professional and was very detail oriented in the services he provided and even brought sample work he had done in the past. He was very personable, asking us questions to get to know us as a couple and also listened to what we were looking for in our photos. He even gave great suggestions and recommendations on vendors he has worked with in the past which helped in our early stages of the whole wedding planning process. Fast forward, and it was time for our engagement shoot. One thing about EYP is that they are very prompt in their email responses and always lets you know what is to be expected even with their super busy schedule. We were so nervous taking our photos but Ethan makes you feel very comfortable! We even got to meet his sidekick which is his beautiful wife, Karis who was so kind and sweet. The day really felt like just hanging out with some good friends :). Wedding Day: Ethan and Karis arrived on time to our getting ready spot and got to work right away. The whole day was flawless! They were like ninjas because you didn't even notice they were taking the awesome shots you don't even think could be possible. They work so hard and with passion. They truly go above and beyond of what is expected! After a month and a half after our wedding, I get an email from Ethan with a complimentary slideshow of the flow of our wedding. It was so beautifully done I must have watched it a 100 times! It was perfect and makes me want to relive the day all over again. We can't wait for the rest! You will absolutely love them with no regrets! I promise! EYP IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER! Book fast as b/c they are in high demand! :) We <3 EYP! Joann & Won
