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."

Alysa and Sean’s Magical Wedding in the Woods | Stillwater, NJ

2022-09-16T19:56:23-04:0011/03/2018|Event Photography|

Having spent a lot of time in Stillwater, NJ growing up, I was surprised and excited to be back in the woods for Alysa and Sean’s wedding at Brook Falls Farm, a venue I’d never been to before.

Alysa and I go pretty far back… like, pushing two decades back. We met in high school, went to shows together through college, and even worked together for a little while. So when I rolled up to her venue, I couldn’t have been more excited to see her marry Sean.

Michelle and Bill’s Backyard Wedding | Vernon, NJ

2022-09-14T16:27:05-04:0010/15/2018|Uncategorized|

Michelle and Bill weren’t going to let a little rain stop them from celebrating their wedding this summer. It had absolutely poured the morning of in Vernon, and it had only just let up when I arrived at their house. Bill was prepared: He set up huge tents in their backyard to accommodate everyone for the reception, and they had a backup plan if they couldn’t get married outside like they’d planned.

Luckily, seats were dried, decorations were hung, and despite some lingering humidity and more possible rain in the forecast, they pushed on.

Explore the inside of the Chatterbox, Augusta, NJ’s 50’s-style drive-up restaurant, forever in this virtual tour from its final weeks in business.

Sussex County, NJ was rocked when the long-time 50's-style restaurant The Chatterbox announced that it would be closing for good after Labor Day in 2018 so its owner can enjoy retirement. A staple of The Wanderer's car club, annual attendees of the NJ State Fair/Sussex County Farm and Horse Show, and baseball fans from the stadium across the street, many folks expressed their feelings across social media about the closure.
