If you've ever come across one of Libby Williams photos you will be in love. It's a subtle love, a quiet and pretty love. I can spot one from anywhere on the Internet. Her photos are soft and real and the people in them look like themselves. That's my favorite part. She has the ability to capture people in their best moments without having to go crazy on the editing. It's probably because you won't even notice the camera when she's around - that's how comfortable you will be with her. A photo shoot with her is like talking with your best friend who just happens to be an incredibly talented photog.
I met Libby about two years ago when my husband and I got engaged. She is a close family friend on his side (now our side), shot the beautiful photos for my gorgeous sister in laws wedding and when I met her it was the obvious choice for our wedding. We decided to skip the engagement photo sess and opted to have Libby with us the entire wedding weekend. She took pictures for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding. It felt like having another close family member laugh and cry and be with us all weekend. I never once felt like I was getting my picture taken, or had those awkward, tired smile moments - move here, turn chin there - moments. She just took amazing pictures that captured the heart and soul of that weekend. I never once worried about it - because Libby is the bomb.
She shot the first professional photos of our baby girl at two weeks old. I've never been more in love with a photo! It wasn't that long ago (at all) but looking at those photos makes me so nostalgic for those early weeks with a new baby. A feeling I know I will have forever when I look at her work from that day. And she just shot some new photos of little bae and me working away in the studio that I will share soon. She just left our house and I feel totally relaxed and don't even remember a camera in my face - she's that good.
I just love Libby.
She photographs a large array of subjects for a ton of people in varying fields.
