Featured: The Knot Outdoor Weddings |Our Lake Tahoe Couples

POSTED IN : Press & Features

When that project you’ve been SO excited about for the last few years finally lands on your doorstep…

Our wonderful friends at The Knot published the most beautiful wedding book EVAH featuring nothing but sweet and lovely outdoor weddings, and they’ve included TWO of our favorite weddings from Lake Tahoe!

This wedding bundle-of-joy arrived while Jeff and I were traveling, so our studio manager, the sweet-and-lovely Kelsey, received the package and put it immediately on the coffee table for our brides to enjoy. After coming home from a week of travel and seeing it sitting there, I was completely thrilled!

(Happy dances were done and many ‘woohoos’ were declared.)

Brian and Susi’s bright and rustic Lake Tahoe wedding at FitzHaven Estate graces the pages of the book as well as Chris and Katie’s luxurious mountain wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe.

Both of these gorgeous weddings were coordinated and styled by the seriously talented Merrily of Merrily Wed, and they both deserve all the recognition in the world! We’re so thrilled about this project, and love that this book is chock full of beautiful outdoor weddings from all over the world, and that our images sit next to some of the top photographers and vendors. *blush*

So glad to have this pretty little beauty living in our studio now!

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.
