for the adventurous souls and wild at heart

Heirloom Wedding Photography and Videography

Hudson Valley
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

a wanderlust filled, husband and wife duo and two halves of KeLi Photography

Hallie and Daniel - November 2020

While searching for the perfect photographers in the beginning of this journey, I was stressing, HARD. I stumbled upon Kelsey and Liam's Instagram page and, well, the rest is history. I fell in love with their work and instantly inquired with them. We set up a phone call for a few days later, and an hour into our phone call, we just knew they were the perfect fit for us. Kelsey and Liam are AMAZING; both at what they do and just as individuals in general. They have SUCH a passion for what they do, but they also have a passion for building a true relationship with their clients. From the beginning, Kelsey and Liam were just like friends we had known for years. Texting you to check in with you, texting you during the holidays, and genuinely showing you that they care and are SO excited to play a big part in one of the biggest days of your life. I mean, how could you go wrong?! From the engagement session to the day of, everything they do is incredible and everything they touch is seriously GOLD. I can confidently say that they are in your corner, cheering you on, building you up, making you laugh, and getting the most incredible shots you could imagine - all at the same time. My husband is not big into pictures but Liam and Kelsey made him (and I) feel so completely comfortable with the process from day 1. I remember leaving our engagement session and saying to each other how freaking excited we were for our wedding day because we truly had the BEST photographers and we couldn't wait to see what they capture. They did NOT disappoint the day of! Kelsey and Liam showed up the day of and got right to work - ready to take on the day. The second Kelsey walked in the bridal suite, she brought such an amazing vibe in with her and the party felt like it was just beginning :) She instantly clicked with our wedding coordinator and the two of them worked amazingly together. My husband also could not say enough great things about Liam and how he was with the guys. He just has a great yet calm demeanor about him and is also hilarious and fun. THESE TWO ARE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, GUYS. They are hilarious and up for ANYTHING. We literally walked down the back of a mountain for pictures with this amazing sign, that you can only see from one of the bike trails, after our first look... That my husband said he wanted to go down to. We all trekked down to it and Kelsey and Liam gave us some of the most INCREDIBLE shots in this area! We then walked back up the bike trail (yes, while there was a big possibility a biker could be coming down) for pictures while hiking our way back to the top. They say it all the time "anything for the shot" and they truly do exhibit that. Kelsey and Liam were fantastic at giving JUST enough direction, when needed, but also just capturing the most amazing candid shots throughout the day. I can honestly say, we truly did make the BEST decision when we found them. If you need a photographer, I would 100000% recommend them! Where else can you find friends AND photographers!? I mean, it's a no-brainer!

I’d love to say that my fiancé and I spent weeks of research, culling through various photographers, but that wouldn’t be true. After hours of mindless scrolling on Instagram, I was struck by this beautifully cultivated photo that you’d swear was straight out of a magazine. Lush waterfalls, two gorgeous models who looked incredibly in love, and a perfect composition. And that was it. I reached out to Kelsey and Liam right away to try and lock these two down for my upcoming nuptials. Surely, they would be unavailable...but we were lucky. They took our call, and I’m glad they did. Kelsey is the chillest, sweetest and most vibrant person you will ever speak to or meet. It’s hard not to fall in love with her the second she starts to talk. And Liam? Quiet, but you realize why once you’re on a shoot with him. These two are the perfect blend of creativity and magic. Their energy and passion is so palpable, that you’d think you could just reach out and grab a handful of what makes them special. Never in a million years did I think that my pictures would look as beautifully cultivated like the ones they had in their portfolio. But they have this way of bringing out every beautiful moment of love and tenderness between you and your partner. Our engagement shoot was perfect. Kelsey is the literal hype man you never knew you needed, and Liam is the artistic ninja you never knew existed. You want these two in your corner. NO, you NEED these two. We can’t wait for them to shoot our wedding, you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to work with them

“...They both have an unreal ability to capture the perfect lighting, the perfect moment, with the perfect vibes all at once…”

"Best. Photographer. Ever."

One of my favorite parts of planning our wedding was greatly due to the fact that we got to work with Kelsey and Liam. Hands down the best experience (beyond what I could have hoped for!) I found the duo on Instagram (after searching for months to connect with a certain style) Long and behold I found Ke-Li photography and sent an inquiry. From the very first outreach, Kelsey responded immediately with a personalized message/phone call. From that phone call I new we HAD to book Ke-Li photography. Already jazzed about booking TWO freaking talented photographers...we then had our engagement shoot and HOLY COW..mind blown AGAIN! These two met us for a SUNRISE mountain photo shoot (which was epic) and were soo comforting that it felt like we knew them for forever. Every photo came out like something out of National Geographic which was drool worthy. Fast forward to wedding: Not only did they capture moments that we will forever hold in our hearts, but the art and creativity behind the shots are just insane. I really have no words to describe just how beautiful they are. ALSO our families and guests freaking loved them. S/O to Liam for also tying all our grooms men’s ties! My words of advice: Book these beautiful souls as quickly as you can!

There aren't enough words in this world to describe the amazing experience we had with Kelsey & Liam. From the first time we met at a local restaurant in Beacon, NY to the day of our wedding, they have truly been fantastic. They told us the first day we met that they want to be our friends, not strangers at our wedding. From that day forward, we've been obsessed with eachother. When all of our friends and family met Kelsey & Liam on our big day, they were all in love with them and understood why we speak so highly of them. They are incredibly professional, funny as hell, and their photos speak for themselves. We got married a week ago, and just got our preview photos emailed to us... they are GORGEOUS. If you are looking for great photographers and great people... HIRE THEM. HIRE THEM NOW! You won't regret it. We love you Kelsey & Liam! Thank you so much!

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
