When was the last time you were at Six Flags Great Adventures? Did you go this year or has it been a while? For Bria & Jameel, their visit to Six Flags with some friends a couple years ago would end up changing their lives forever. In Bria’s words, they were both there with their own group of friends that seem to know each other. However, Bria being the outgoing energetic person that she is, realized that Jameel was the one person in the group she did not really know, so she did something about it. Jameel, at first came across kind of quiet but he couldn’t get past Bria’s bright smile and bubbly personality and eventually they ended up talking for the rest of that day. Needless to say a “great adventure” started that day and the rest is history as they say.
In 2018, B & J will express their love to a group of their closest family and friends, and we can’t wait to be there to document every moment of it. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy their recent engagement session at New Jersey’s Grounds for Sculpture. We had a great time walking around and getting to know them a little bit better.
“Where there is love there is life.” When friends become family, documenting their special day becomes a privilege. Damon has been one of our good friends for years. He is laid back, stylish and always fun to be around. When we met Iris, we could clearly see why they were drawn to one other. Outside of being beautiful, she too is full of life and has a great sense of humor. We were able to document the surprise proposal earlier this year and now the time had come to make their union official before everyone. We could not have asked for a better day than a bright and sunny summer day, celebrating their union surrounded by a host of family and friends.
See what we mean by full of life…

Congratulations Damon & Iris…
She stole his heart and he let her keep it! Yordanoes and Jason are a very sweet loving couple. Both pretty laid back and excited to become husband and wife. We met up with Yordanoes about a year ago shooting the wedding of one of her good friends Candace. We were happy to know she enjoyed our work and wanted us to document her special day as well. Yordanoes, was very proud of her Eritrean heritage and had a beautiful ceremony and reception in true Eritrean style. Grab a cup of tea and sit back and enjoy some of our favorites from their big day.
Jason and his lovely Mother.
One of the customs we were made aware of prior to the big day is no shoes allowed in the church, we were sure to wear our good socks. 🙂
We simply loved all of the culture and colors.
Let the celebrations begin!
We could shoot in front of this beautiful door all day.

The guys were cooler than the other side of the pillow.

After portraits it was time to head over to Santerian Hall for the nights festivities.
There was so many details to capture & we loved every minute of it. A lot of the ornaments & decorations were flown in from Africa.
Midway through the night, it was time to change into more traditional Eritrean garb & make way for a second GRAND entrance.
Congratulations Yordanoes & Jason. Thanks for trusting us, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
It has been said “To Love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to be loved by the person you love….is everything!” While Bernard has known Ray since back in their Central High School days (258), we first met up with Jen and Ray, the couple last fall. We had a chance to get to know a little more about them as we shot their engagement session and could clearly see the love they had for each other as they joked, cuddled and talked in their own little world while walking around the grounds of John James Audubon Park. Now the big day they had been planning for months, had finally arrived and it was a beautiful one. Together with family and friends at Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, PA we were about to witness Jen & Ray become one. Enjoy some of our favorites from their day…
Mom’s smile of approval.
