Husband and Wife Wedding Photographers
Working together as husband and wife wedding photographers is something we are very grateful for. There's nothing better than getting to do virtually everything with the person you love more than anything.
We're deeply in love, and we bring the passion and energy we feel for each other to every wedding, portrait session, event or project we work on. When you adore the one you're with and you love the career you've picked, it's easy to attract amazing people to your business.
Meet Adeline & Erik
We have been a couple since 2008. When we met, we were both still living with our parents in South Florida. Adeline was working in an insurance office pushing papers; Erik was a student in culinary school. It's amazing how things work out. So much has changed in our relationship and our lives since the early days of our love, and we couldn't be happier with our constant evolution.
We're both artists with lots of empathy, two characteristics that complement each other very well and make us the perfect team of husband and wife wedding photographers for cool people.
How We Work Together
No team of top wedding photographers would be complete without an extraordinary lead, and in the case of You Look Lovely, that would be Adeline, artistic superwoman. Erik can hardly believe how she does it, but with his unyielding support, she has photographed hundreds of weddings since she started shooting professionally at the age of 20.
Adeline learned how to be one of the best wedding photographers in the world by training under some of the best in the industry as a second shooter. By working with photographers who were industry veterans, including three wedding photographers who were listed in Martha Stewart Weddings' 69 Best Wedding Photographers, Adeline acquired the skills and experience to handle photographing weddings, engagements and events of the utmost sophistication. She taught Erik everything she knows about how to photograph weddings, and together they capture memorable moments and events large and small, from epic engagement parties to intimate farm weddings and everything in between.
Years ago, Adeline was working in an office and was bursting at the seams to pursue her passion for photography. So one day, she asked her mom to let her buy a professional quality Canon with her Best Buy credit line, under the condition that she pay it back before the 24-month no-interest period was up.
Over the next couple of years, she worked about 100 weddings as a second shooter with some of the best wedding photographers in Florida. It didn't take long to pay back her mom and build the foundation of experience and skill needed to eventually become one of the best wedding photographers in the world.
Adeline continued to teach herself more and more about film photography, digital photography, photo editing and manipulation, and in 2012 she and Erik decided to take the leap and move to New York City after Bon Appetit magazine found her work and hired her to shoot the entire Navigator section in Miami for the January 2013 issue. She became the lead photographer for a large wedding photography agency, and apparently her portfolio was quite popular. She wound up becoming the most popular greater New York wedding photographer for the agency, getting booked to shoot 85 weddings in a 16-month span across all 5 boroughs of NYC, Upstate NY, Westchester, Long Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and beyond, representing every culture and style you can imagine.
Later in 2013, Adeline was nominated for Image of the Year by the prominent film photography publication Belle Lumiere Magazine, she left the agency and put all her focus in You Look Lovely. Together with Erik, they're striving to build their reputation as being among the best wedding photographers in the world.
Erik always loved taking pictures, but he never thought he'd become a professional photographer until he realized how much fun he had spending time with Adeline when she was shooting weddings. Before she taught him about aperture, natural light and shutter speed, Erik was a private chef for a pro athlete and a freelance writer for a variety of food and travel publications
He still cooks for Adeline almost every day, and together they do restaurant reviews in NYC for Blackboard Eats, where they get to live the dream of getting paid to write about food.
Still, there's nothing better to Erik than working with the love of his life, meeting the incredible people they get to photograph, and experiencing the amazingly positive reactions that our clients give to us after they receive their photos.
