A Year In Review: The Year We All Want To Forget

2022-09-14T16:16:39-04:0012/18/2020|360 Photography, Photography|

If I say the name of the year, it confirms its existence, so let’s just dive right in.

The photo industry came to a screeching halt in March and rightfully so. I’ll be the first to say it: although I find photography incredibly valuable, it’s absolutely non-essential during a worldwide health crisis. Luckily, I was still able to find some wonderful people to safely work with this year, and I can’t wait for you to see some of the new projects I’ve been cooking up.

I’ve been pretty good about updating my Instagram and Facebook page with photos, but this poor blog needs some love. So here in all its glory are some of my favorites from this unrelenting year.

Lizz and Mark’s Fantasy Wedding in Sparta NJ

2022-09-14T16:17:09-04:0002/28/2020|Event Photography|

Two truly interesting people made the very end of 2019 that much more memorable by getting married at Mohawk House in Sparta, NJ. The bride, Lizz, is a theater nerd (in the absolute best way) and a bona fide world traveler, having lived basically everywhere you can think of. Her now husband, Mark, is an Eagle Scout and, probably just as impressively (maybe), a fan like myself of all-things comic book movies.

Caitlin and Kevin’s Backyard Branchville Wedding

2022-09-14T16:19:47-04:0010/03/2019|Event Photography|

If one moment can define Cait’s personality, it’s the moment that someone spilled a bright red, homebrew, cherry ale on her wedding dress... while we were walking to go take her portraits as a new bride.

If you gasped when you read that, you’re sharing the reaction that I and everybody else had seeing it live…

Bea’s 100th Birthday Party

2022-09-16T10:19:37-04:0006/22/2019|Event Photography|

Meet Beatrice Gillar, or Bea to you. Bea and her family celebrated her birthday at McLoone’s Boathouse in West Orange, NJ, just a short walk from the Turtle Back Zoo. You might know Bea as a published songwriter, a college graduate, trumpet player, mom, a grandmother, an aunt, cousin, friend, and now a centenarian.

This Sketchy App Converts B&W Photos to Color

2022-09-14T16:22:09-04:0002/21/2019|Photography|

I'll be honest: I full expected to download a virus when I found the Deep Color app on iOS. It was from an unknown developer, had no ratings, and I've always seen the inside of my head from rolling my eyes so hard at services that claim to "convert" black and white photos to color.

As I downloaded it, I thought to myself, "Cool, I'll get a new phone when this one inevitably gets fried or hacked." Then upon opening it, the app prompted me that it needed to download... something but didn't say what. "Cool," I thought again, "load that malware right on in."
