Professional, reputable, leaders, and awesome people who just love to have fun with couples in love We bring over 200 weddings and 6 years of experience to your very important day. Professional film making is powerful! Combine that with a story, and you get an unforgettable film, just like your favorite movie. Weddings and special events are an unforgettable moment in your life. Shouldn’t you have an unforgettable film to relive it?

What makes us unique is that we build a relationship with our couples that blossoms into friendships. Suzi and/or Terrence Lighten will personally be there for you from the initial email, wedding day, editing process, all the way until delivery of film and after that. We do not have or manage teams trying to film multiple weddings a weekend. We limit the amount of weddings we do a year, to give brides and their details all the personal attention they truly deserve. With our passion for film, we have mastered the art of storytelling.

That’s enough about us, contact us so we can talk about what’s important, and that’s you and your special day. Read less

So, we haven't even received our wedding video yet, but we already know it's going to be amazing! We did a "Love Story" prior to our wedding to be shown at our reception and our guests are still talking about it to this day.

Terrence is so talented! We are so lucky to have had him and his wife Suzi film our wedding day. We are looking forward to seeing what his final product looks like.

Terrence and Suzi are very organized and know what they want without taking away from your Day Of Timeline. They are very respectful of your time and make you extremely comfortable to capture those genuine moments of the day.

When we were looking for our videographer, Terrence's videos on his website were so addicting. Even my husband watched all of them. We look forward to all of his posts... he's that good! We cannot stop raving about his work--even with just this Love Story he did for us. Our family can't stop raving about that video either. If you're looking for someone to turn your wedding video into a movie that you can watch over and over again, Lighten films is for you! All of his upgrades are totally worth it, as well!

Best thing that we decided to purchase for our wedding! Our video turned out wonderful! I would highly recommend getting the trailor, my husband and I watch ours just about everyday. Another positive thing is that Terrence and his crew were never in the way but captured all those special moments! :)

I had the pleasure of hiring the Lighten Films Cinematography Company as my videographers for my wedding day and boy was Lighten Films beyond AMAZING!!! I LOVE how they captured my wedding day so beautifully and I LOVE my custom-cover Wedding Film!!

I wasnt sure about having a destination wedding in Las Vegas, but after I saw Lighten Films' website and their films, they were the FIRST wedding vendor that I contacted and booked... Even before I had a venue! Not only did The Lighten Films Crew film my wedding, but they also helped me out with finding other vendors and creating my timeline for my wedding day; which helped lessen my search worries and my wedding day stress levels.

I am truly thankful and appreciative of how wonderful the Lighten Films Crew treated me, my family, and my wedding day. The Crew is so personable, so warm, so creative, and so welcoming. They make you feel like family and not like just some client. If I ever were to renew my vows, the Lighten Films Crew will be the very FIRST vendor that I, without a doubt, will book for it! Hands down, Lighten Films is THE BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY COMPANY EVER!!! And when you book Lighten Films for your special day, you will be so glad that you did. It's the best decision you'll ever make!!!

Do yourself a favor and have Lighten Films document your wedding.

The highlight film created for us is absolutely amazing. Terrence and his team captured us and our day perfectly. Even better, they were totally unobtrusive while doing so. I practically forgot they were there on the wedding day, but they somehow managed to capture every single detail!

I know that videography can seem like an easy thing to cut out of the budget, but we will treasure this video forever, and I can't imagine not having it. Terrence caught all our little expressions and moments in ways that photography just cannot, and edited them into something that is totally awesome. Terrence and Lighten Films are professional and true artists.

We first saw Lighten Films work during the Bridal Show back in February 2011. Since then, we would often check Lighten Films website to look at his work. We have inquired to a couple of other vendors, but it wasn't hard to make a decision that Lighten Films will be filming our Wedding Day! The first time we met with Terrence, we booked right there and then. Again, we went with our instinct and impression...same way we booked our florist and our venue. The service he provided us on our Wedding Day was top notch! I will definitely recommend him to everyone I can...His service is something that definitely will make you want to hire him again...Lighten Films provides excellent customer service!
