Who are The Youngrens?

We (Jeff and Erin) have been photographing weddings as The Youngrens ever since we got married in 2006. In the years that have followed, we have traveled all over the U.S. and to beautiful destinations around the world photographing luxury weddings for wonderful couples.

Over the years, we have discovered that we come alive as artists and as people when we are able to step into a couple’s wedding journey to help them focus on what truly matters most – their commitment to one another, their celebration with their family and friends, and their legacy that they are creating for future generations.

What is ‘By The Youngrens’?

As The Youngrens, we have found that we are only able to truly serve our couples when we limit ourselves to 20 weddings per year. This means that there are many couples that we must say ‘no’ to, but our desire is to serve and impact as many people as we can with a meaningful photography experience.

It is from this heart of service that we expanded our efforts beyond what we do as just The Youngrens.

Listed below are all of our endeavors that we are involved with, as direct owners and collaborators.

  • Weddings

    Jeff and Erin weddings are luxurious, elegant, traditional, and upscale. In fact, we refer to our weddings as Black Ties & Ballrooms, because our images are classic, timeless, romantic, and emotional. We love couples that are connected to each other, close with their families, and classic in style.

    Our hearts are made to photograph couples, so we only photograph Weddings, Engagements, and Anniversary Sessions. This is why we created additional brands – so we can serve more people in a meaningful way.

  • For Photographers

    We are passionate about empowering wedding and portrait photographers to become thriving entrepreneurs, and we are committed to developing other leaders in the wedding industry that value integrity, authenticity, and trust.

    Through speaking, business coaching, and online education, we have helped thousands of photographers create successful businesses that they love.

  • Weddings

    Clove & Kin serves weddings that are sweetly romantic, and we refer to them as Grey Suits & Gardens. Our favorite weddings are chic garden and estate affairs, with images that are bright and airy while remaining classic and timeless.

    We currently have six amazing photographers that photograph weddings for Clove & Kin. We have directly trained them in our techniques & methods, so this brand is very similar to The Youngrens in it’s heart and photographic style.

  • Portraits

    At Clove & Kin, we believe that life is made up of milestones and moments, and both should be documented in a beautiful way. So not only do we photograph weddings, we also photograph family portraits (hence ‘Kin’ in the name) in an effort to capture the everyday moments that make up a legacy.

    We deeply value tradition while remaining romantic and sweet, so we specialize in young stylish families that desire to document their journey on an on-going basis for future generations to enjoy.

  • Weddings

    Heavily influenced by the commercial work we do at Bauman Photographers, the photographic style of Bauman Weddings is bright, modern, fashion-forward, and vibrant.

    Bronson is our Lead Master Photographer for weddings, and he loves couples that are stylish and tasteful with a flair for the dramatic. In fact, we lovingly refer to his weddings as Designers & Divas.

    His style is perfect for colorful and vibrant weddings at modern or luxury resorts across Southern California as well as Persian or South-Asian celebrations.

  • Commercial

    Our talented team of photographers at Bauman Commercial photographs a high-volume of headshots, corporate events, products, and editorial work.

    We specialize in work that is particularly young and fresh, and our photographic style is vibrant, expressive, and creative. As such, we regularly photograph the top attorneys in the city, and we are the go-to firm for San Diego staples such as the San Diego Museum of Art and UCSD.
