About Kivus & Camera

Kivus & Camera is a husband & wife team based in Raleigh, NC. The goal at Kivus & Camera is to provide you with vivid, energetic, and personal images of your wedding day that won’t fade. And their goal is to do that regardless of the situation (high noon or midnight, quiet moments with grandma or crazy dancing with the wedding party, rain or shine, etc. etc.)

Kivus & Camera believes wedding photography should be more than just "light and airy" or "dark and moody." It can be bright and colorful. Crisp and emotional. Bold and hilarious. And it should always be created with enthusiasm.

Elyssa used to be a journalist, so they start with a documentary approach, but they're also giving artistic consideration to lighting and composition, ensuring you have stunningly beautiful photographs of real moments and emotion.

    The best!

    Elyssa and John make the best team! We knew within 5 seconds of talking with Elyssa and John that we were going to ask them to photograph our wedding. When looking for a wedding photographer my husband and I felt like everyone’s photographs looked so similar, but we did not think that when looking at their photographs. Elyssa is so creative and has a true eye for photography. Her photos are so bright and vibrant. Elyssa was so organized and responsive. When it came time for the wedding day everything moved swiftly thanks to all of Elyssa’s behind the scene planning. We are so grateful to of found Elyssa and John. We couldn’t be more pleased with our stunning wedding photographs. HIGHLY recommend! :)

    Yes, yes, a million times YES!

    My husband and I hired Kivus & Camera for our wedding day photographers and they hit it out of the park. We are travelers, never in one place for more than a couple of months, but this didn't stop Elyssa & John (the Kivus duo) from accommodating all of our needs and more. Not only did they travel outside of their home territory for our day, Elyssa kept us organized with periodic emails throughout the planning process to keep us thinking about what we wanted to incorporate and making sure they were prepared to help us capture all of it. Aside from being organized, reasonably priced, highly responsive, flexible, and fantastic photographers...Elyssa and John are wonderful, gracious humans and an absolute pleasure to be around. They were able to corral my family for group portraits with a smile (not an easy feat I may add), capture the best candid shots throughout the night, and include various details that I cherish reminiscing. I could go on and on about all of the things I loved about working with Kivus & Camera, but all you really need to know is that they would be nothing but an asset to your event and they are worth every cent (+more). So many of our friends and family have said "these are the best wedding photos I have ever seen" and I can assure you that it has everything to do with Kivus & Camera and very little to do with the us! Haha.

    Kivus and Camera is a duo of creative and ever experienced photographers! Elyssa and John have a diverse but very cohesive style; your wedding day photos will show such natural progression in mood and a variety of angles, colors, etc. They've mastered the balance of providing content that is unique but timeless, bold but classic. Our property is incredibly varied in design, expansive, and exposed to weather elements. They seamlessly covered a recent wedding in torrential downpour with such ease and grace while still managing to capture incredible shots. I truly don't thin they missed a single detail of the day or experience. Elyssa and John go above and beyond as one of your wedding day vendors; they do not just provide photography but support and guidance as well. We invite them back as often as possible!
