Elyssa & John Kivus are a husband & wife wedding photography team. They live in Durham, North Carolina, but have travelled for weddings before and will certainly do so again (they like beaches!) Elyssa's background is in photojournalism, and John's is in computer software, but they fell in love in law school. Their story is long y'all. They like Star Wars, beer, and Disney World. They say they like running, but that's mostly so they can get away with drinking beer.
The thing they love most is working with fun couples and making vivid, enthusiastic images.

Best People and Pictures!
I seriously cannot stress enough how happy you will be choosing Kivus and Camera as your wedding photographers. The moment I met Elyssa and John, I knew that I had hit the jackpot. They are so flexible and kind, and they went ABOVE AND BEYOND to ensure that every photo I could think of and then some was captured. They captured not only the wedding, but also the personality of our guests, the love present, and the essence of who we are. Our guests commented all night and are still talking to us about how fun the photographers were and also how they knew exactly how to photograph the fun. We had guests who said they wished they had hired them for their weddings and had future wedding couples reach out for their information! I cherish all the sneak peaks I have and cannot wait to see the rest. Thank you is not enough.Sent on 06/25/2019

Amazing Engagement and Wedding Photo Experiences
Kivus & Camera were absolutely awesome to work with! They were our photographers for our engagement session and wedding day, and from the very first time we met them while trying to pick a photographer, we knew they were the perfect choice for us. From making us both feel so at ease, to making sure every detail we wanted (and didn't even know we wanted) was beautifully captured. Thank you so much for making sure our special moment was captured for eternity.Sent on 06/09/2019
