MEET US: Russ & Rebecca Climie (aka @climielivingtiny)
We are a husband and wife Grand Rapids based photography team. We call ourselves "Climie Living Tiny" because in 2015 we moved into "the tiny house" in downtown Grand Rapids. It is a 540 square foot fully furnished apartment at The Morton (a newly renovated apartment building in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids).
So who are we? Here are a few things we think you'll want to know about us as business owners and as a couple.
ABOUT TIBERIUS IMAGES
- We have photographed over 300 weddings since our business began in 2004, which means we know what works and what doesn't on your wedding day (and how to make you look your best).
- Since 2004 our team has photographed nearly 1000 live events (ourselves plus several associate photographers). Ranging in size from 30 to arenas filled with 5000 attendees, we know how to work with businesses planning events (and how to make sure guests look and feel great).
ABOUT RUSS & REBECCA
- We have been married since 2002 and have worked together full time since 2009. That means we've had to make sure our marriage could survive our business.
Our favorites books include: The Five Love Languages, The Five Languages of Apology and DNA of Relationships.
- Friends call us adrenaline junkies and a list of ordinary experiences include: sky diving, mountain horse back riding, helicopter rides, riding camels in the desert, dog sledding, swimming with great white sharks & flight lessons.
Below you'll find our Instagram feed, which includes our "tiny house" journey, brides and businesses we've photographed and personal posts we've written along the way.
In addition, we have posted below about our travel boondoggles (both near and far), a few stories about photographing our own family and other stories that are personal to us in the Grand Rapids area.
