Featured: We’re On The Cover! | Exquisite Weddings Magazine

POSTED IN : Press & Features

I’m just so excited, my dear friends! The latest issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine just hit newsstands, and we’re on the cover! Well, not Jeff and me exactly, but our gorgeous image certainly is!

This summer, we were asked to shoot an editorial gown spread for Exquisite Weddings, so not only do we have 10 glorious pages of our images featured in the current issue, but one of our photos is on the winter cover! (Insert happy dance here)

Check out the images from our industrial glamour gown shoot here, and don’t forget to pick up a copy of this fabulous magazine!

A huge thank goes out to all of the amazing vendors that collaborated on this shoot, as well as the wonderful team at Exquisite Weddings. I think it’s safe to say that we *heart* all of you dearly!

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.
