Downtown San Diego Portrait Session | Jerry and Julie

POSTED IN : portraits
FILED UNDER :

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 you’ll see exactly what we mean!)

Jeff and I spent the evening sauntering around Downtown San Diego with these lovebirds, and oh my, oh my, oh my… we had such a FUN evening together. From exploring the nooks and crannies of the gorgeous Westgate Hotel, to sipping wine and sneaking kisses at an outdoor café, Jerry and Julie remained connected and lighthearted every second in front of our cameras.

And not surprisingly, they TOTALLY charmed us with their style, their laughter, and the way they LOVE to love each other!

I can’t wait to share Jerry and Julie’s Downtown San Diego portrait session with you!

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

Rancho Santa Fe Portraits |Cory and Jackie

They met over coffee. Not a sit-down-over-a-cup-of-joe sort of thing. No, it was much more romantic than that. Cory was the cutie behind the coffee counter, the soulful coffee shop owner with deep blue eyes and an artists heart toward coffee making. And he just so...

Sweet and Sour, Edition VI | You Too?

babySweet and Sour

To me, the most powerful words in the English language are “me too.” They mean that I’m not alone. That I’m not entirely crazy. That I’m ok, and that I can survive. That in so many ways, I’m completely normal. So whatever it is that you may be feeling right now,...
