The Weddings and Engagements of Our Gorgeous #TYCouples
We knew that CJ and Elizabeth’s wedding day would have all of the elements we adore about our #TYweddings… timeless style, meaningful traditions, and so many emotional, holy-wow-this-love-is-deep moments. CJ and Elizabeth are a beautiful couple inside AND out (Jeff and I have been head-over-Youngren-heels for them since their engagement session in Balboa Park!), so
As the sun was setting, Omair and Christy simply held each other, closed their eyes, and listened to the sounds of the ocean waves. At last, they were married… and in that moment, nothing else mattered. Of all the sights from this couple’s beautiful wedding day, this was one of our favorites: two souls completely

It goes beyond the love language of affection they both speak (and oh-how-obvious it was – these two were so adorably affectionate throughout their entire engagement
With all the far-away places that life takes Dan and Jen, HOME is the most sacred place. Tons of time and elbow-grease have gone into making their home the perfect haven… and they could spend hours content at home with a charcuterie board, two glasses of wine, and records of Tom Petty or The Grateful
Jerry and Julie wanted to freeze this moment in time: committed to each other and very (very) in love. It was oh-so-obvious how much Jerry adores his Julie, and how Julie totally comes alive when she’s around him… it was the sweetest thing to capture! (Just scroll even a few images into this session, and
