She’ll be at the Mall. Trust Me.

POSTED IN : Inspiration Boards

Brides, lovers, fellow Anthro-addicts – the day has finally come. I thought it would never happen. But I woke up this morning to an email that read….

“What if Anthropologie did Weddings?”

Shuuuuuuuuut up!! It’s brilliant. Sheer genius. I want to kiss whoever does the email marketing over at Anthropologie headquarters/heaven (sorry sweetie). Maybe that way I can glean just a little bit of the pure magic that rolls out of their heads with every single advertisement that I receive from them. I mean, their brains must be made of fluffy puppies and cotton candy, because I get warm fuzzies all up in my insides and I can hardly contain myself when a new message comes through (thanks Gretchen for that phrase on Facebook – I’m a total plagiarizer). And this, my friends, has been a long time coming…

Anthropologie Unveils Wedding Line with BHLDN, February 14th.

So to our 2011 brides, I will be that THING clapping and squealing on your wedding day if you decide to take Anthro up on their offer. And to all of our fabulous grooms out there that are wondering where you’re Valentine’s date went… just check your local mall.

Happy shopping!




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.

TED Talk – David Griffin on photography

I found this TED Talk with David Griffin, photo director of National Geographic, on the Pictage blog the other day. I love it. I love the photography, the stories, the insight, and the leopard seals. I love that stories are what I do for a living. I love that...
