Rocksteady Images is a husband-and-wife photography duo based out of West Milford, NJ. Jarvis & Leah are artistic pros that are supremely passionate about creating works for others to enjoy.
It's doubtful that anyone ever grows up dreaming of one day becoming a wedding photographer (Jarvis & Leah definitely didn't!). But back in 2012, Jarvis somehow found himself covering his first covenant, and to his surprise, he can honestly say, "I was made for this!" Since then, Jarv has been cultivating his craft and even introduced Leah to photography along the way. (Newsflash, folks: her eye for details + moments is mind-blowing!!) It's kind of funny how these two operate on pretty much opposite ends of the spectrum—Jarvis is super task-oriented and a lover of spreadsheets, while Leah is a creature of curiosity and the best in-person person you'll ever meet—but they're incredibly better off for it. Two perspectives, one vision. Amen.
The talented professionals of Rocksteady Images have gone through the wedding process themselves and understand the importance of transparency and responsiveness. In addition to two skilled photographers, Rocksteady Images offers several services that can be included in a customizable package. Those services include:

Fantastic wedding photographers!!
Jarvis and Leah, aka Rocksteady, were the best wedding photographers! Throughout the entire process of working with them, from doing a video chat early on to get to know each other before making any decisions, to receiving our full set of wonderful wedding photos, we were impressed with their dedication, talent, and general awesomeness. They really made an effort to get to know us, understand our particular preferences, make us comfortable, and create beautiful photographs that were personal and fitting for us. Jarvis and Leah are genuinely kind and considerate people, and they are very professional and experienced - but also fun to be around. Friends of ours had used Rocksteady for their wedding, and we had heard good things from the couple as well as the wedding party. Our own research of their website and reviews compared to other options, plus a video chat with Jarvis and Leah solidified our decision. We selected a package that included an engagement photo session, and we were very happy with that decision. Not only did we get some excellent photos, but we also appreciated having the opportunity to get to know Rocksteady and their style in advance of our wedding. Plus, we truly enjoyed the session, due in part to Jarvis and Leah’s friendliness, ability to put us at ease, and willingness to go along with our ideas. Our package also included a venue visit during which we and the Rocksteady duo scoped out our wedding venue for great photo opps a couple months before the wedding. That was very helpful and, again, a nice chance to connect with our wedding photographers before the wedding day. Jarvis and Leah were also very helpful in planning in advance an itinerary of photos / events for our wedding day. Their advice was valuable and we really appreciated that they were so organized. On the day of our wedding, it was no surprise that Jarvis and Leah were fantastic and surpassed our expectations. They were professional, organized, and prepared, as well as being a positive, comforting, and fun influence. They both looked out for us and stayed attuned to our wishes while also crushing it on the photography front all day. Jarvis and Leah make such a great team. Plus, it really made a difference that we felt a strong personal connection to them by the time it was our wedding day - being photographed for your wedding is a very personal experience, and we think it was more enjoyable and special (and less awkward!) having our photographers be people with whom we had already bonded. We received a handful of preview photos from Rocksteady shortly after our wedding, and they were all fantastic. We were thrilled when we received our full set of photos, as they were also spectacular. Rocksteady did an excellent job of capturing so many aspects of our wedding day through beautiful photos. We are grateful for Jarvis and Leah’s part in making our wedding amazing, and we would highly recommend them to any couple looking for outstanding wedding photographers.Sent on 02/22/2020

You are in the best hands
I got married during COVID19. Jarvis and Leah and we’re by my side helping me create over 3 weddings because of all the craziness due to the virus. Each time a crisis began, they were constantly there to listen to me and make the absolute best of each situation regarding my wedding.
Their creativity shines, their teamwork is flawless, their artistry is out of this world.
I had a one photo in particular where I wanted my mother to zip up my dress, but due to the virus I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to have that picture. Thanks to Leah, a fishing pole, and a two story building, that picture was possible and more memorable than I could have ever dreamed.
Most of my family and friends could not be physically there, so my family that was present was able to FaceTime/Zoom chat in my loved ones. Thanks to Jarvis and Leah they took incredible family pictures THROUGH THE PHONE of each family member. That technology allowed my family to be present and Jarvis and Leah had the perfect camera and eye to make that bittersweet memory a beautiful gift that now makes me smile.
They played funny games with me and my groom to make us feel comfortable and capture the sweetest moments.
2 weeks before the actual wedding, over FaceTime I told my photographers I was going to have a drive in wedding, id be wearing masks and gloves, if stay 6 feet apart from my loved ones, and I was going to end the night in a mud fight.
They took all of this crazy information, and turned it into a perfect wedding day. To most photographers, they would have probably called us crazy, but only Jarvis and Leah could take a crazy situation like this, and turn it into a fairytale dream wedding.
They are truly gifted people. If you choose Rocksteady, I ASSURE you, you are in the best of hands.Sent on 05/18/2020
Rocksteady Images's reply:Thank you for the encouragement, friends!!! That was a massive curveball thrown at us, but you guys took it in stride and created something even more beautiful. Definitely a sweet journey we'll never forget. Here's to many more adventures to come!

Best Photographers Ever!
To say Rocksteady surpassed all expectations I had would be the understatement of the year. My now husband and I are a COVID couple, and decided to postpone our larger celebration til 2021 and do a small gathering this year. This is where Jarvis came in. From our first introduction all the way through delivering final pictures, Jarvis was a pleasure to work with - timely, responsive, and of course (and obviously) insanely talented. All of our friends and family are obsessed with our pictures and everyone that sees them comments on how amazing they are. I am so thrilled with Jarvis' work and would recommend them to anyone & everyone!Sent on 11/02/2020
