We met up with LJ and Phil for part two of their engagement session. Waited till it got dark, set up some strobes, and had some fun. Photo #1 had sparklers, and Photo #2 had an iPhone 4s Flashlight.
We can’t wait to photograph their wedding in Hawaii this summer!
We’re very proud to showcase our latest set of wedding photos from this season. For all of you who have been waiting for this blogpost, well… it’s finally here! We were blessed with the opportunity to spend an entire day with our lovely bride and groom. The wedding day preparations took place at The Palace at Somerset Park, one of Central Jersey’s finest wedding venues. With an incredibly outgoing + friendly bridal party, we immediately felt at home even before things got busy. From the sporadic dance parties to the champagne toasts, their bridal party really knew how to have fun.
Having experienced so many firsts this year as a photography duo, we are proud to add “photographing a Coptic Orthodox wedding” onto our list. Rowais and Marti’s ceremony at St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church was unlike anything we had ever experienced before. A beautiful blend of culture, visuals, history, linguistic diversity (we spotted Greek, Coptic and Arabic among the church decor), coupled with a full house of wedding attendees, this is surely a wedding we’ll be reminiscing about for a long time.
The rest of the evening was spent in full-fledged celebration. From the great food (did we mention we love the food perks with our jobs?) to the dancing, we relished every moment of the night… obviously, behind our cameras. Other fun activities that our bride and groom had incorporated into the reception included a professional Caricaturist and a great photobooth.
Congratulations to our wonderful newlyweds Rowais + Marti, and we’re so thankful that you chose to include us in your wedding day!

As photographers, it’s always a blessing to catch a small break from the normal routine of weddings, engagements and portrait sessions. While we love what we do, every once in a while we need to take a breather and find an outlet to recharge ourselves both creatively and mentally. When Sue had contacted Jon a few weeks back, her email suggested shooting something along the lines of “fun.. fashion.. free spirited…crazy.” Those keywords were enough to get things rolling.
Below is the culmination of the few hours we spent adventuring Harlem & the surrounding neighborhoods.
(Special thanks to Sue for being way too cool to work with. Also, thanks to Lakeshore Learning Center for suggesting the touchable bubbles we used that evening. Although our frigid fingers prevented us from successfully collecting and stacking the bubbles, y’all should try it out and share with us your experiences.)
