Liv & Jim | Couples Session in Bloomington, IN

Liv & Jim are two of the most genuine and kindest people I have ever met. I have absolutely loved getting to know them since our move to Bloomington! We met for the first time when we got together for this shoot in downtown Bloomington and hit it off. Before that we connected through Instagram – so many of my friends have come through that little app, I love it!

Jim is one of the football coaches for IU so this was the only night that we could meet before his schedule was busy practically 24/7. Of course it decided to rain! But, these two were so great about it and we decided to meet at Hartzell’s in downtown Bloomington. When there was a break in the downpour (it was legit down-pouring) these two braved it for a few shots in a near-by alleyway and those are my favorite from the entire night!

Afterwards we talked for awhile and I got to know these two and their love story (Liv’s sister set them up! She took Liv’s phone and began searching for people who lived in Bloomington, came across Jim’s account and hit follow, then these two connected on Bumble a couple of weeks later! Since they were already following each other on Instagram, they felt like they went for it and ended up talking for hours. They’ve been together ever since!)

Thank you so much, Liv & Jim, for making me feel so welcome here and braving the rain! I absolutely adore you two and will always love these photos!
