Fairy Pool Exploring in Byron Bay, Australia

Matt and Brianna were ready for some adventure. Together we hiked up hills finding beautiful lookouts, and we stumbled upon the cutest little fairy pool tucked away in the rocks. We didn’t think twice about climbing down the steep cliffs to go inside. They bravely jumped right in and watched as the waves came and crashed upon the rocks. As the sun was setting we climbed back over to the beach to run around in the waves under the pretty pink and blue sky. Matt and Brianna’s love for each other is so pure, the way they look at each other literally makes my heart melt. I met these two during my time volunteering with YWAM (youth with a mission) in Australia. They celebrated 5 years of marriage this year, and together they are also volunteering with YWAM. They committed to 3 years of training groups of young people and leading them around the world for missions work. Their heart for Jesus is so strong, and is displayed so immensely through the way they love others and each other. I am so glad I had the privilege of meeting them and documenting this part of their journey together. I can very confidentially say I have two new friends for life.

"Liv is extremely talented and great to work with! She gave us enough direction in our shoots to know what to do but still left tons of room for candid, genuine moments. Nothing beats seeing real smiles and laughter in your photos! She was more than willing to collaborate and go for some sillier ideas, and was always super encouraging. She's an incredibly sweet person and we felt very comfortable to be ourselves around her. Liv's talent is beyond just the technical knowledge, she really has an artist eye for beautiful photos. Her editing style is perfect, not too dark or light but still brings personality with the warm tones she adds. I HIGHLY recommend working with Liv!!"
