The photos that Peter took were amazing. It was exactly the type of photography that we wanted for our wedding. Peter really captured the every emotion that we felt at our wedding. They were very professional and Peter and Colette were always so welcoming and helpful. I would recommend Light Impressions Photography to all of my friends and family.

I simply cannot say enough when it comes to our experience with light impressions photography. Having an interest in photography myself, I was very picky when it came to choosing our wedding photographer. Additionally, a friend of ours recommended light impressions as they did her wedding, and she is a photographer as well. My husband and I knew from the day that we met Peter and Colette that light impressions would be the photographer for our wedding. Peter has the photographic eye that we were looking for and focuses more on the natural moments of the day rather than posed portraits. He made my husband who does not enjoy being photographed feel extremely comfortable and took wonderful shots of our day. Additionally, as a teacher I am extremely organized and knew exactly the photos I wanted taken (whether it be a pinterest idea or a large family photo) and Peter had a photo check list for us to fill out before our wedding day to ensure all of our pictures we taken. He even had an assistant with him to check off each photo as it was taken in order to make sure we had everything we wanted! Furthermore, I did a lot of DIY projects for my wedding and wanted all of that hard work captured in photos. Peter took it upon himself to get to the venue early and photograph what I wanted just to make us happy!
With light impressions photography, you not only get great quality photos (with real film in black and white) but you get a personable experience. You will never be just another client to light impressions, you become a friend. Peter and Colette get to know you and your style and use that knowledge to photograph your day just how you want it. Peter also sits down with you after the wedding and helps you design a one of a kind album that is just what you wanted. Light Impressions is always available to call when you have any questions and they genuinely care about making you happy. I would strongly recommend this photographer for your wedding!

Peter and his wife, Collette, were an absolute pleasure from the beginning. We met Peter at the bridal show at the Madison Hotel and he was extremely professional and had great samples. We then met Peter where he walked us through our package options and what to expect from him the day of the wedding. We even hired Pete for our engagement photos. He and his wife came to Hoboken for a beautiful photoshoot by the waterfront.

The week before the wedding, Pete called and walked us through the day, being specific with timings and the flow of the day, ensuring we had nothing to worry about. Peter arrived right on time, starting with casual getting ready pictures of the bridal party and then the First Look. Peter flawlessly transitioned between the various bridal party and parent groups for pictures ensuring he went through all the pictures we had requested. At the reception, we hardly noticed he was there, but he seemed to capture every important moment. A great part about Peter, different from other photographers, is that he stays until the very end, so he captured all the priceless dancing photos (he even got on a step ladder!).

The box of photos we received were spectacular from the formal bridal party photos to the candids. The black and white photos are also the best I have seen. We cannot wait to select our pictures and make our album!

Peter was a phenomenal photographer for our wedding! He was patient and very organized! Our favorite photos are the candid pictures he took and he did not miss one moment of our day! Colette is lovely and a pleasure to deal with. Both Peter and Colette are very professional yet still make you feel like family. I highly recommend them!

Peter and his assistant took photos for my Nov 1, 2013 wedding. Before the wedding Peter and his wife were great to work with, they made the process easy. While Peter's prices are a little high I believe his work is well worth it. I have not received my photos yet but from the shots Peter showed me I know they are going to be great! I can not wait to see them. Best thing about Peter is that you really don't even notice him taking pictures during the reception!

Peter is wonderful to have as your wedding photographer. He is not obtrusive and allows the couple to actually enjoy their big day without sticking a camera in your face. I saw a few of the shots he had taken at the wedding and they were all incredible shots. Either Peter has eyes in the back of his head because he seems to always be around for those pic taking moments or he has developed a sixth sense by now. We had a halloween themed wedding and Peter is probably considered a halloween expert by now after our shindig at the bretton woods mansion. Choose Peter.... His assistant is friendly and his wife is terrific....you will meet her when you go for your consultation. . I'm happy I chose light impressions... This is one of the few times in your life that you want pictures to be perfect. Peter takes pride in his work, you can just feel it when he's buzzing around snapping shots. Thanks again , Michael and Sharon 10/11/13

It has taken me a long time to write this review, as I was waiting for the completion of my contract so I could review every part of the service.
I will note that Peter was not my photographer. Sean, his partner (or perhaps employee?) was.
I had three main issues with the work.
1. Sean and his assistant were extremely rude or perhaps just socially unaware. Among other things, his assistant broke one of the flowers in my hand made paper bouquet and, instead of apologizing, made me feel that it was my fault. After I started crying, Sean continued to take my picture until my mother finally got him to leave me alone to collect myself.
2. My requests were ignored. There was no picture of my husband walking down the aisle, and though I specifically requested no fisheye photos I ended up with about 1/4 of my photos being fisheye.
3. The studio is slow and stuck in the 1990s. This may not be a problem for people who don't mind waiting a long time for photos, but you will not get digital copies of your photos until completion of the contract. For me, that took over a year and a half. That means NO DIGITAL PHOTOS until everything- book, prints, etc- are given to you.

I could go on and on about how horrible this vendor was, but suffice it to say that I had a horrible experience that taints my wedding memories to this day. STAY AWAY.

Peter Podeswa with Light Impressions was the perfect photographer for any wedding! I had two ceremonies and a reception and he was able to capture amazing moments from the whole day! Even now when I look at my photos, I can relive the day because each photo tells a story. There were no intrusions and myself and my guests did not even know of their presence. I am very happy I chose Light Impressions for my special day and would recommend them to any bride looking for a carefree day with someone who knows what they are doing!
