Wendy Yang didn't set out to be a photographer. In fact, her parents sent their baby girl to UNC-Chapel Hill in the hopes she would come back home as Dr. Wendy Yang. 

Unfortunately for Mom and Dad, Wendy took an introductory course in photography as an elective - and she and the camera just ... well, clicked. 

Fortunately for Mom and Dad, they still have much to be proud of. Wendy has distinguished herself as a photojournalist by having her work appear in major publications such as National Geographic World Magazine, Sports Illustrated, USA Today, Town & Country Magazine, Taste of the South Magazine, The Charlotte Observer, SouthPark Magazine and Lake Norman Magazine. Wendy worked as a photo editor and staff photographer at the Charlotte Observer for 11 years and a staff photographer at the Kansas City Star for 5 years. 

But that's just what she does for a living. Her passion is capturing intimate moments for families ... moments that will evoke precious memories and stir emotions for generations. By avoiding studios with big lights and lots of equipment her sessions are never overwhelming. Wendy's fun, casual approach to photography, her skilled use of ambient light, and an instinct for capturing those special moments will make your images come alive. 

Wendy lives in the Charlotte area with her husband, Doc (a TV director), their daughter, Sophia, their dogs, Ellie and Lucky, and their cat, Bailey.
