Downtown San Diego Anniversary Session |Chris and Sarah

POSTED IN : portraits
FILED UNDER : ,

Jeff and I photographed Chris and Sarah’s wedding in downtown San Diego one year ago, and their First Look at the Horton Grand Hotel was one of those amazing First Looks where all of us burst into tears together! In fact, it still sticks in our hearts as a First Look that we’ll never forget! These two felt so lucky to have found one another, and Jeff and I got to share in an insanely meaningful life moment that will forever stand as a “pillar memory” within their beautiful love story – and in our photography!

So when the time came for their one year anniversary, Chris decided to surprise his wifey with an Anniversary Session with us at the very same place that we did their First Look. #supessweet

Chris told Sarah that they were going on a special anniversary date in downtown, and when he walked Sarah through the hotel and she turned the corner to see us, she was so surprised that she burst into tears! But then again, so did Jeff and I!

These two mean so much to us, and we just can’t believe that we get to create such special memories for them in their marriage. This session brought so much joy to our hearts, and we loved creating such classic images of these two. Because we’ve photographed them so much already, they were completely comfortable in front of our cameras, and I think we were able to capture the most beautiful and elegant photos yet! (PS I can’t get enough of Sarah’s dress – LOVE.)

Chris and Sarah: We absolutely ADORE you both, and we just can’t believe how special you both have become to us! We are honored call you friends, and we so look forward making many many more special memories together! Here’s to many more anniversaries to come!

Hugs,
Erin

We teach photographers to build life-giving businesses that they absolutely love.

About Us

We're Jeff & Erin

We’re Jeff and Erin Youngren – and it’s our mission to help you thrive not just as a wedding photographer, but as a business owner. It’s time to set aside the stress and comparison of a hustle mindset, and build a life-giving business instead.

We met in college, got married, and started corporate jobs before we discovered (and fell in love with) wedding photography. But like many creative entrepreneurs, we were booking anything we could, strapped to our laptops and living dangerously close to burnout.

So we dug in and learned how to build a thriving business that supports our dream life – instead of a joyless business that runs a stressed-out life.

Today, we photograph only 10 Dreamie weddings per year, but we also run two other wedding brands plus a commercial studio in San Diego, CA. And we do it by only working the hours that fit into our life. The other hours? We spend those living a joyful life raising our two beautiful sons, James and Samuel.

hugs,

Jeff and Erin

Jon and Amy said 'I do' at a peaceful vineyard outside of Sacramento, CA, in 2012. They were college sweethearts from Harvard with giant futures in front of them. At the time, Amy told me that she had been nervous about marriage up until that point. She wasn't sure...
