Peter was fantastic on our wedding day - his experience in not only wedding photography but weddings in general helped shape our day and made everything run smoothly. We loved his style of capturing real moments instead of posing us and family all of the time. He was able to capture photos from farther away too, not overwhelming us or our guests with cameras in your face. He is very traditional with his style and really works with you to make sure your album looks like you want it, not his own vision (although if you're not the creative type, he'll certainly help you out!). You have a ton of face time with him after the wedding to make sure the album is just how you want it. He's very flexible with different photo packages and presents a lot of options. One thing to note, would have been helpful to have information re: prices of individual photos beforehand (then again, I didn't think to ask about that at the beginning) for relatives that want specific photos only and not necessarily a full album. My rating for responsiveness is <5 only because email is definitely not the way to contact them - and for me personally with my lifestyle and job, it's not always convenient to call. But if you leave them a voicemail they always call back if you have questions or concerns.

Light Impressions Photography is the BEST wedding photography company around. My wife and I couldn't be happier with ALL of the pictures that Peter and his partner took during our wedding day. Peter and Colette literally timed out our wedding day so everything would run smoothly and so we wouldn't miss our cocktail hour. Picking our wedding album was truly one of the hardest things to do since EVERY picture was amazing. Peter has a eye that truly captures some of the best moments. My older sister used Light Impression 12 years ago for her wedding and we were so happy that we were able to use them for ours. The first time we went to meet Peter and his wife Colette, my wife and I felt like we were part of their family. They were so welcoming and really do truly know how to run a successful business. They treat their clients with the most love and respect. We would HIGHLY recommend Light Impressions for any photography that you need.

Thanks for everything
Matthew and Jamie DeAnn

From the moment we met Peter and his wife, Colette, at a bridal show, we knew that Light Impressions would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. Peter and Colette spent so much time with us explaining the different photo packages that we could choose from as well as all of the other options that we had when it came to photographing our special day. In the months leading up to our wedding, they were so responsive and patient (via phone and email) in helping us create a list of every portrait that we wanted Peter to take as well as helping us design a timeline for the day that enabled all of our photos to be taken without taking time away from our party. Peter and his assistant were very professional and so friendly with our families and friends on our wedding day. He kept the atmosphere fun while ensuring that he was able to capture every photo of the day and night without ever being pushy. Peter and Colette contacted us as soon as our wedding proofs were ready to view and we were able to see all of our photos in real 4 x 6 prints, organized into 2 beautiful boxes, not just online like most other photographers do! Many of the photos that we looked at were ones that we did not even remember having taken – we did not notice Peter taking a lot of the pictures which made them appear very natural and showed us truly “in the moment.” Again, Peter and Colette took so much time to explain how to go about ordering photos and portraits, designing parent albums, and selecting photos for our own album. They made the entire process from start to finish feel so personal and as though our wedding was as important of a day to them as it was to us. We are so fortunate that we chose Light Impressions to capture one of the most special days in our lives and that we will have all of our beautiful pictures to keep the memories alive forever.

Peter and Colette were such a pleasure to work with. Their professionalism and great attitude made everything go smoothly and stress-free. Peter is truly an artist - there were virtually no "bad" pictures. He was also very knowledgeable about all the different film techniques and processes and I think his finished products look the most unique / personalized of any vendors that we had evaluated. Our only complaint is that access to digital prints was not included and we had to pay an extra fee (and we could only get about half of them posted), and I feel this is something that should be a basic inclusion these days.

My Favorite part about Light Impressions was that our parents got to pick and design their own albums which most photographers give the parents the same exact album as the bride and groom. In addition, most photographers design the albums were as we had the artistic freedom to do as we please. I would recommend them and I will be using them for any future events. Thanks!

Peter does more work beforehand so you have less to worry about on the day of your wedding. He also makes sure you have every shot you asked for beforehand because the day of will go by so quickly that you will forget everything. While Peter will take a few "standard" wedding party photos he won't take anything cheesy. You will get elegant photos that are artistic and natural. If you are booking him for the Madison Hotel his really knows the space so well!!

We had a great experience with Light Impressions for photography on our wedding day. Peter and Colette did a great job working with us ahead of time to make sure that he captured all the moments that were important to us. The day of, Peter and his assistant kept us on track and did a great job capturing the moments, yet stayed in the background so we did not feel like our day was posed and we were able to enjoy ourselves. Our pictures turned out beautiful and we will treasure them for our lifetime. Light Impressions is the go to photographer for weddings in northern NJ, especially if at the Conservatory at the Madison Hotel. Our only complaint is that you will have to wait a few weeks to see the initial photos, then another few months to get the digital versions. The pictures are worth the wait!!!

Seeing higher ratings really makes me wonder if people were just trying to be nice. I can't fathom how my experience could have been so drastically different.

Our candid photos were generally terrible, and most of the portraits were the same. Black and white photos were really grainy and many of the other pictures had poor exposure, so at least if he gave us the digital negatives then I could have fixed some of them. I feel like half my wedding is missing from the final photos we saw, and many of the photos were either bad quality or just awkward/poor shots.

It took over a year to get our final product back, and with that said, it seemed as though he didn't even take the time to develop (adjust and touch up) any of the photos before sending everything out to get done by someone else. They didn't even bother to tell us when everything was ready.

Overall, everything was WAY too expensive for the quality of service. If I were you I would take my time and shop around and really do your research. At this point I feel like we would have been better off having an amateur friend take pictures and then just use shutterfly to make a book ourselves.

When looking for a photographer, I asked several friends who had recently gotten married for a recommendation - none were willing to recommend theirs. I, however, am happy to recommend Light Impressions. They are a bit "old school" which may not appeal to everyone - those looking for more instant gratification in terms of prints / albums or more modern / artsy pics - but that does mean that the quality is high! Importantly, as photographers are with the bride all day long, Peter was very respectful of all that the day represented and was not too "in your face" as I have heard of other photographers. He worked with us to get the portraits done efficiently so we could enjoy the party. We were very happy with Light Impressions on the day of, when reviewed our proofs, and when we got our final album! Peter's wife Collette helps with the business side and she is a delightful person to work with throughout the process!
