Minneapolis Portrait Session | David and Brittney

POSTED IN : portraits
FILED UNDER :

It’s been such a whirlwind of traveling from coast to coast these past few months and the best part is that Jeff and I have found ourselves smack dab in the middle of FALL. As in, colors changin’, boot wearin’, scarf lovin’ kind of weather. When we arrived in Minneapolis for our Two-Day Workshop at the beginning of October, we just so happened land at the peek of the changing fall colors. As we made our final prep for our two days of teaching and shooting, our workshop host pointed us to French Park out in Plymouth and when we arrived to scout our jaws hit the ground so hard that it was OBVIOUS we were from out of town.

Well, that and my high heel boots tromping through the woods kind of gave me away.

Our Two-Day Workshop for photographers was a complete success in Minneapolis and we totally lucked out with the best models ever for the shooting portion on day two. David and Brittney are as cute and comfy as you get, and put them in front of a camera and they will live it up. They’re weren’t afraid to work the lens and get uber cuddly – even with ten other photographers hanging out!

We loved David’s tweed jacket and bow tie. This guy has got STYLE.

How cute it Brittney’s outfit? I loved the lace/ribbon/leather combo.

David and Brittney: Your adorable-couple rating is OFF THE CHARTS. Seriously – when you guys came together is what like a tropical storm of hotness and style hit the midwest. Thank you so much for hopping in front of our cameras and being our fabulous models for the morning. Your love and connection made our jobs seriously easy!

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
