(or, we're at Disney World) 

We're Elyssa & John Kivus.
If we aren't at a wedding, we're probably drinking craft beer and watching Star Wars.

More of the Kivii Story »

Long story short, just before our wedding, I had brain surgery (literally), and realized that I should be doing something that brought me joy. So we started Kivus & Camera and haven't looked back...

I (Elyssa) had come to law school from a photo-journalism background and John was an incredibly talented hobbyist. We clicked. (pun SO intended)

We're your friendly neighborhood Raleigh wedding photographers!! We met in law school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and bonded over a shared interest in photography (among lots of other geeky things).
