Rowais + Marti || The Palace of Somerset Park

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!

Rowais + Marti’s Wedding Teasers

Words can’t be begin to describe how amazingly unique & energetic this wedding was for us. Although we had an adventurous engagement session last fall with this couple, we had no idea what to expect for their wedding day. Check out our teaser photos below, and especially take note of all the colors and stunning visuals in their beautiful, eye-grabbing Coptic Orthodox ceremony photos. Certainly one of those “you had to be there” kind of weddings. Come back to our blog in a few weeks for a full set of photos!

Once again, congratulations to our friends Rowais and Marti on their new marriage.


Rowais + Marti Engagement

This past November, we met up with Rowais and Marti for their engagement photos. After days of research, we finally found a place in New Jersey that contained the two elements that they had requested be in their engagement photos: “greenery” and “the beach”… and what place more suitable than at a national park? We were equally surprised to find out that New Jersey had a national park, and best of all it was right along the jersey shore.

Although the weather was chilly and overcast, Marti and Rowais braved the cold with us to explore the wooded forests, venture down winding sandy pathways, and climb atop a few well-worn concrete (former) military structures to get some great photos. Here are a select few of our favorite images… Oh, and be sure to check out the very last image; no better way to end an engagement session than with a phenomenal ocean sunset.

To our friends Rowais and Marti: Congratulations once again and we look forward to your wedding this July.
