I am a fine art wedding photographer and a believer of true love stories. I believe the love you share becomes your legacy and my goal is to help capture that legacy for generations to come.
My journey in photography started when my husband and I got married in 2006 and we began photographing weddings together. For nearly 20 years, we traveled the globe photographing beautiful weddings for couples we adore.
While my husband now works in marketing, I just can't give up this craft I love. Now, I lead the Clove & Kin team (along with our commercial photography brand), and love that I continue to walk with classic couples through their wedding journeys as the principal photographer for this incredible team.
Photographing Since: 2006
More about Erin
I'm a sucker for anything timeless and refined. If it feels like classic mid-century style, I'm in! And if there's a heartfelt story behind a detail, I will melt like buttah.
My heart & soul are my two little boys, James & Samuel. I never imagined I'd be a boy mom, but I have a house full of trucks, Matchbox Cars, and rocket ships to prove it. I also have a pair of worn out running shoes from chasing after them on their scooters. They are DAREDEVILS.
If I'm not running after my boys, you'll probably find me in a yoga studio locating my zen. After all, I have two of the hardest jobs on the planet - being a parent and an entrepreneur at the same time. Yoga keeps me centered.
My husband, Jeff, and I traveled the world photographing weddings as The Youngrens for 17 years and made memories we'll never forget. While Jeff has set down his camera and now works in marketing, I still love weddings! That's why I have joined our Clove & Kin team to keep getting my wedding fix - I just can't stop!
