Fandom means being super passionate about some particular thing. There are movie fans, wine fans, football fans, Broadway fans, etc.
 
We're fans of lots of things, and we love hearing other people get excited about their fandom(s).

Elyssa is a double Tar Heel. John is a Clemson Tiger but cheers for UNC too (his grad school) because otherwise Elyssa would be sad.
Don't worry, we've happily (and peacefully) photographed weddings for rival fans. Everyone deserves beautiful images!

Craft beer is DELICIOUS, but high in calories. 
Running is TERRIBLE, but it's great cardio.
Beer + Running = Balance

*It's okay if you're not a beer person or if you actually enjoy running, we can still be friends!

Beer & running

I haven't met an "unphotogenic" person. You are all so lovely and it brings me so much joy to capture that beauty in photographic form.

You're also really nice and I love you!

He has a delightfully sarcastic wit.
He good-naturedly teases his loved ones (especially me).
He’s fiercely loyal and caring.
He’s wicked smaht (and hails from New England).
He cheers loudly for Clemson.
He’s never read any Harry Potter books, but he *has* read the Wikipedia entries.
He has a very dapper footwear collection.
He’s an introvert.
His favorite movie is The Two Towers.
He’s an Apple fanboy, former programmer, and the Kivus & Camera tech support team.
 He's an IP attorney AND runs the best site on the internet: Rope Drop [dot] Net.
He’s really really ridiculously good-looking, but knows there’s more to life than just that.

He’s my favorite person on the planet and he makes me laugh every day.

Let me tell you bout my
best friend

Elyssa

I was a divorce attorney.
I had brain surgery.
I became a wedding photographer.

I still have the same brain, just minus a tumor.
That sort of thing resets a person's priorities, and it solidified my desire to stop practicing law and return to my roots as a photojournalist, this time documenting love stories.   

Here are some things I really love:
ASOIAF (Hey George, if you’re reading this, please let Arya and Nymeria reunite happily!), Carolina Basketball, chocolate, comedy podcasts, Disney World, double IPAs, dresses (bonus points for pockets), elephants, french fries, great television, Hamilton, Harry Potter (Slytherin, represent), John Kivus (duh), the MCU, naps, photography (duh), puppies, Star Wars, The Stormlight Archive series, Weddings
oh, and alphabetical lists ;-)

Elyssa:

So Who talks first?
you talk first? I talk first?
