for the adventurous souls and wild at heart

Heirloom Wedding Photography and Videography

upstate new york and beyond (will travel for pizza)

Magical things happened when a Gemini and a Libra met on Tinder and bonded over photography, traveling, and pizza. After just a year of dating and endlessly adventuring through the mountains with our cameras in hand, we blended our separate photography businesses and began traveling the world capturing adventurous couples in love.

We have a deep passion for capturing the wildly in love. We’re not about those traditional, stiff and awkward poses, but who is? We’ll make you feel as natural and as comfortable with us and in front of the camera as humanly possible - we don’t just want to be some weirdos hidden behind the camera, but your friends and confidants, guiding you through the process and capturing your love every step of the way.

We will get the two of you dancing barefoot in the forest, saying ridiculous mildly to highly super inappropriate things to make each other, laughing until you cry and forcing pizza, donuts, or ice cream in each others faces. We’re here to capture the soulful, deep, wild, genuine, playful, loving and intimate moments the two of you share and the raw connection between you.

We’re Kelsey and Liam

I truly do not have enough words for the talent that is Kelsey and Liam--but I'll give this a shot. If you are looking for FUN, professional, creative, kind, artistic, experienced, whimsical, incredibly easy-going photographers then Ke-Li Photography are where it's at (I could have extended that list but you get the point). When I started my search back in 2018, as a newly engaged "bride to be" who really doesn't like the "all eyes on me" aspect of getting married, I felt SUPER comfortable once I got on the phone with Kelsey and explained what I was looking for. She walked me through their process, answered every single one of my questions, provided helpful information and even shared guidance in the planning process from her experiences in the industry. When it came time for our engagement shoot, Marc, my husband, was a bit reluctant going into it as I would imagine most grooms are in this situation but once the 4 of us met in person, we clicked instantly, and the nerves went away. We couldn't stop talking about how great Kelsey and Liam are on our way home. When it came time for the Big Day itself, everything went PERFECTLY. Their sense of style and creativity is unparalleled and they both have a beautiful way of making the entire process a beautiful experience for couples. I cannot thank the two of them enough for being so wonderful. This caliber of client service is beyond appreciated and certainly doesn't go unnoticed. I HIGHLY recommend Ke-Li Photography!

Kelsey and Liam are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. I can not say enough good things about them. My husband and I are shy in front of the camera but when we met with them for the first time at our engagement photo session they made us so extremely comfortable. When it came to our wedding day Kelsey was my hype person. She made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world and that we were naturals in front of the camera. Having someone like that behind the camera is huge and I think makes a huge difference in how we look in our wedding photos. Kelsey and Liam make such a great team and play off of one another while shooting. I am beyond grateful that they photographed our wedding because I know they are in extremely high demand. I love them both very much and would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Kelsey and Liam are quite literally the best ever! My fiance and I are getting married on June 30th and cannot wait to have Ke-Li Photography working with us based on our amazingly magical engagement photoshoot experience. Kelsey is so sweet and thoughtful! She is basically like my fairy godmother making all my photo dreams come true! Liam is so down to earth and chill which helped my fiance and I feel calm and relaxed through the process. They both have an unreal ability to capture the perfect lighting, the perfect moment, with the perfect vibes all at once. I dream about our day with them to this day and probably always will. I know that sounds over the top but I'm for real! I really can't say enough about these two - When we needed it most Kelsey was there to pump us up with love and excitement and Liam was there giving us such great advice resulting in gorgeous shots we will cherish forever. My fiance and I look forward to working with Kelsey and Liam for every event we want to capture with professional photographers in our future together. xox <3 TY Ke-Li Photography

"Best. Photographer. Ever."

Best. Photographer. Ever. Kelsey and Liam just did our wedding photography and because it was a distance wedding, we only got to meet them the day of. I immediately felt so comfortable with them (which is coming from someone who HATES being the subject of photos.) Kelsey is beyond fun and easy to work with, very organized, and caters to exactly what you want. We got to see a few of the angles and shots they took right away and they both have such a talent and eye. I seriously can't say enough good things about them! I can't wait to get our photos back because I know they're going to be amazing!

Ke-Li Photography shot our wedding at Jiminy Peak and I cannot say enough about them! To say we were thrilled with our experience would be an understatement. They were prompt, courteous, and extremely accommodating. They truly have a great eye for anything outdoors/rustic/adventurous. You can see their passion for this and it comes through in their work. They were always professional but also laid back which is a welcome thing on a hectic wedding day. All of our photo requests were graciously accommodated and the outcome was well beyond our expectations. Not only did they nail the traditional photos (first kiss, wedding party, etc) but their candid shots were amazing and some of our absolute favorites! I cannot thank them enough for capturing all of the joy and love on our wedding day with such a creative eye. We will continue to work with Ke-Li Photography for all of our photography needs and recommend them to all of our family and friends. Thanks, Kelsey and Liam!

It was love at first Instagram; the moment I saw Ke-Li's portfolio, I knew my fiancé and I had to meet them! Kelsey and Liam truly exceeded our expectations during our engagement session. The photo duo made us feel like ourselves as we ventured into the woods for the day. Not only did they take our pictures, but they acted as creative guides as we ventured through the beautiful landscapes of the Hudson Valley. Ke-Li gave us the full experience of becoming comfortable in front of the camera while effortlessly capturing our love for one another. We also received our photos incredibly fast; in less than a week, we were able to view the gallery and download. All edits are flawless and we couldn't be happier with the vast selection of images. We highly recommend Kelsey and Liam to capture all of your life experiences!

It is actually impossible to fully articulate how amazing Kelsey and Liam are. My husband (EEK!) and I are so thankful that we found them through friends whose wedding they also shot and that they were willing to travel all of the way down to Delaware! They completely understood our aesthetic and were able to perfectly mesh our look with their style. They are kind and funny and thoughtful and managed to keep us on schedule all day. I highly recommend working with them. Photos are one of the only physical items you have from your wedding after it is over. We will treasure ours thanks to Kelsey and Liam.

If you are looking for 2 awesome and chill photographers who take beautiful photos, these are the right people to book for your wedding/event! Keliphotography is so much better than your average wedding photographer, their photos are truly a work of art that really stand out, and are not boring traditional posed photos, which is exactly why we booked them for our wedding. Kelsey and Liam are freaking amazing and so chill, laid back, and super easy to get along with which is super important for people like us who feel awkward posing/ getting photographed. They made us do super silly things which resulted in a ton of great candid photos which is what we prefer to posed ones. The fact that there are two of them is also really awesome and something I didn’t think much about initially but they are able to get different angles and they come up with different ideas for great photo ops. I want to just bring them around with me all the time now to take pics! Would recommend x 1000
