Cali + David

Light of my life.
In the mystery of your eyes I find my sweet escape.

As a creative soul I am always seeking for new adventures.
Cali and David joined me on this little adventure full of light. (Literally!)
I had envision for days a whimsical, moody indoor session with lights.
We created a small setup with “fairy lights” and some pieces of tulle.
But what really added the whimsical romantic touch to this session was the amazing connection between these two Souls.

The space we chose for this session was not the biggest it was a tiny room
but it was full of creative vibes all around.
One thing I have learned to embrace as a photographer and creative person is to embrace and work with what I have.
To learn to see beauty in the tiny corners where it is usually unnoticed.

Styled Whimsical Elopement | Leavenworth, Washington |Liz Franco Photography

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
― Pablo Neruda

A beautiful styled elopement during our Workshop in Leavenworth was the perfect end to this wonderful event in such a magical town. These beautiful souls were so deep in love. Their passion for one another overflowed through their smiles and was easily heard through the light in their eyes as they admired each other.

A Vintage Love story St. James Farm, Chicago photographer / Mikayla + Kyle

Somebody pinch me! I am trying to write the perfect words to explain the overwhelming joy my creative soul feels when looking at these images. But A) I am not a writer B) These two beautiful souls are beyond gorgeous to explain it in a few words. These is real these are my clients, they are in love and beautiful inside & out. Mikayla is an amazing and talented photographer near me and when she contacted me to book a portrait session for herself I was so excited, but then she came back and this time with Kyle (her love). You can imagine oh! the excitement I felt when she mentioned that she wanted a SUNRISE session. The light, the setting, the outfits, everything came together so beautifully and honestly I just couldn’t believe how perfect this session was. The vintage era inspires me so much, in ways I just cannot explain, the romance and magic behind it, I just love to introduce that into my portraits. When my clients are more than willing to make things like this happen, I can just say, my soul, my creative soul smiles.

I hope you enjoy this session as much as I do. Thank you for stopping by.
