Who am I? New York-based freelance photo journalist and event photographer Yun Gen Yang, and once you see me bobbing and weaving through the crowds, like a thief looking for the ultimate treasure, you’ll understand my photographic approach. I am looking for the ultimate treasure - your perfect wedding pictures.

We had our engagement photos and our wedding day photos taken by Yun. We've gotten to know Yun and he is really nice and down to earth. He is so easy to talk to and so fun to be around. Hubby and I aren't photogenic nor good models but Yun gave good directions and made it effortless. For engagement, Yun traveled to governors island with us and for the wedding, he came with us to carl schurz park. The shots are beautiful, if only we had him as our private paparazzi everyday!!

Yun handled both group shots and candid shots masterfully.

For the candid shots, he kept us relaxed with casual conversation, taking the pictures without even looking through the lens at times to make sure we weren't distracted by the camera. He didn't make us feel like we had to constantly strike a pose (unless we wanted to pose, of course). And he had several lenses with him at all times which he quickly and fluidly switched between to make sure he captured each moment at its best.

The group photos also turned out excellent. My family in particular always takes group shots very "seriously" (in the somber, no-smiling sense--they're Russian, after all), but nevertheless he was able to coax some smiles and genuine laughter out of them for many of the shots. In fact, to my surprise, some of my favorite shots are the ones with my family.

Absolutely phenomenal photographer. He made us feel comfortable the entire time, was a pleasure to work with, and took incredible photos. Not only does he had a great sense of timing, he also has a great eye for lighting, color, and composition. Most of his photos stood on their own as works of art rather than just wedding photos - the types of things you would see in magazines instead of wedding photo albums. We got married in NYC around the Brooklyn bridge and he knew all of the great spots to take us to get the best pictures. I would highly recommend him.

Best in the business. Couple friend used him for their weddings and we loved the photos, so Yun was a natural choice. Was very accomodating in terms of the package selection and hours. Made us feel at ease the entire time and took some awesome pictures of course. Would highly recommend Yun for any event!

My husband and I found Yun Gen Yang by Google searching "wedding photojournalism NYC". When we found Yun Gen's site, we knew that we had found the right photographer for our wedding. After visiting him at his Soho studio, we felt that his warm, friendly, laid back personality and crisp, colorful photography would be a great fit with our wedding party and style. During the wedding, Yun Gen and his assistant were everywhere. They were unobtrusive, and caught some beautiful, candid shots of our wedding party and guests.

Yun Gen's style is crisp, dramatic and colorful. This is not the vintage wedding look. We wanted a photographer who could capture dramatic moments, as well as poignant, intimate moments - and Yun Gen did a beautiful job with both.

Yun was amazing! Adam and I were fortunate enough to work with Yun both at an engagement session and then again at our wedding and have the most amazing pictures! He is both fun and professional, provides direction and was always supportive of use "doing our thing". He is quick to reply to questions, concerns or suggestions and was always responsive to our ideas and quick to provide his own great ones. Our engagement session was so much fun and the pictures were amazing! We absolutely cannot wait to see the photos from our big day. We absolutely cannot say enough good things about him and can't wait to find an excuse to work with him again in the future.

We immediately loved Yun from the first meeting. He is very friendly and easy to be around, which was a comfort to us, as we hired him for both our engagement photos and ceremony and reception photos. He had a lot of ideas for the portraits but could also blend into the crowd for the candid shots.

He brought an assistant on the wedding day and she was very nice and helpful too, especially as I started to cry before walking down the aisle. She happened to have a napkin when I didn't have a tissue on me!

Afterwards he was timely with the photos and very responsive whenever we had a question. The photos are beautiful and a wonderful way to remember our special day.

I am surprised that Yun has only gotten two Yelp reviews so far since judging from his website and blog, he is super busy and has tons of fans these days!

Yun did our wedding photos back in August and I loved them! Yun is rather young and works out of a small studio in Union Square, but he is a great find. He's incredibly professional, timely, easy to work with, and has an amazing style and eye for a great photo. At times, my husband and I would just be goofing off and he would capture amazing shots.

We got our photos on a DVD with a slideshow about 2 months after our wedding. I think that is an amazing turnaround time, especially considering that we were in the peak of wedding season (August) and he goes through all the pictures and edits them. I didn't order my book through him, so I can't say how his albums are, but everything else about our photo experience was awesome!

Yun did an amazing job as our engagement and wedding photographer!
From the very beginning, Yun was friendly, professional, and always
timely with his responses. During our search process, Yun took time to
personally meet us at his studio to show us some work from his
portfolio but never pressured us to hire him, although we're glad we
did! Our pictures turned out beautifully - soft, lighthearted and
romantic, and Yun was so easy to work with. We felt natural in front
of the camera under his direction and we all had a lot of fun. I would
definitely recommend Yun to any bride!
