Congratulations on your engagement!

This is such a beautiful, exciting time for you and I can’t wait to hear more about your special day. My name is Apsari, the eyes behind the lens here. I pride myself on capturing candid moments and romantic love stories with a fine-art aesthetic. Your wedding day is important to me, and I am honored to have documented over 60 weddings in the past 6-7 years. 

I began my photographic journey taking portraits of my beloved children and family. Creating imagery that froze these moments in time allowed me to revisit cherished memories throughout our lives. I wanted to give this special gift to others around the world. That’s when I found my love for portraiture and wedding photography. Through these special days, I combine my artistry and creative eye to produce romantic, ethereal imagery in all my galleries that are timeless, filled with light, and authentic joy. I can’t wait to hear more about your unique story!

destination weddings


The smell of the ocean in the morning, the sound of  shoes on old cobble-stone roads, the excitement of magical experiences waiting to unfold.. .It takes a lot of time and care  to plan a wedding abroad, and it deserves to be thoughtfully captured and preserved.

One of my greatest joys in life is traveling to beautiful locations. From sea-side elopements to luxurious chateau ceremonies, your destination wedding is a once in a lifetime experience worthy of artful imagery. As no two weddings are alike, I would love to hear more about your special day and create a completely customized collection tailored to your specific photography needs. Please feel free to contact me to inquire about your day.

engagement sessions


 Soft touches, subtle smiles, stolen kisses, surreal sunsets… before you say ‘I-do’ let’s capture these special moments to document the beginning of your love story.

 An engagement session is a wonderful opportunity for us to work together for the first time before your big day! We will have a wonderfully calm, fun, wonderful experience without the pressure of a strict wedding-day timeline. During your session, you will get a sense of how I meter lighting, direct you, and how it feels to be photographed as a couple with me. A beautiful practice-run which will provide you with delicate, dynamic, exquisite imagery to share with family and friends before your wedding.

$600 + tax 

Engagement sessions are add-ons and not included in your wedding package.



" I cannot recommend Java Rose Photography/ Apsari enough!! While looking for a wedding photographer, we came across Apsari and her husband Aziz, and fell in love with their photography. Despite planning our wedding in New Jersey, we decided to fly Apsari and Aziz out from North Carolina for our big day because, after seeing their pictures, we couldn't NOT have them be our wedding photographers.

Apsari and Aziz BLEW us away! From the get-go, Apsari was so friendly and excited in her emails, and the quality of her sample images were unparalleled. On the day of our wedding, both Apsari and Aziz were very calm, very organized, and helped keep everything moving smoothly. They were able to capture our special day the way we were hoping (and then some!) and were very quick to get our digital copies to us. It is obvious that Apsari has a special eye and a real talent for photography, and her work speaks for itself. Apsari and I have kept in touch after the wedding, and I am so thankful to know someone as sweet, generous, and kind as her!

We really cannot recommend Java Rose Photography enough, and only wish they were closer so we could have them cover all of our family events!"
