Amazing photographers! We just got married on 10/18/14. Florio & Megan were our photographers, and Chris was the assistant. Each of them went above & beyond and really outdid themselves! They made me and my husband and our families feel so comfortable in front of the cameras. They were extremely professional and fun for the entirety on such a long day. We cannot wait to see our pictures -- we know they will be amazing. Thank you!

Florio and his team were one of the greatest parts of my wedding! I had a Sunday afternoon wedding and they showed up exactly at 9am when they said they would be at the hotel to start taking pictures. They were fun, lively and very professional and we had the greatest time working with them! They knew what they were doing and definitely captured everything we asked them to take pictures of. I haven't seen any of the proofs yet so this is just about working with them. Emailing with Monica and the office regarding questions about the wedding was a breeze. Super fast responses and super friendly. LOVED them!!

Michele and Luis were our photographers for our wedding day. They were extremely accommodating and wonderful! Our wedding took place at 10am on a Sunday, so we didn't know when we would have time to do our romantic photo shoot. In our first meeting Monica suggested that we do an early morning sunrise photo shoot, and luckily Michele and Luis were able to make this happen! The quality of their work was absolutely outstanding and they are extremely professional. They made sure we got pictures with all of our family members and made sure we did not leave anyone out. Michele even helped to bustle my dress when my mom and sister were stumped!! These guys are the absolute best, and you should not look elsewhere if you want the best wedding photography anyone could ever ask for!

Lighthouse Photography is absolutely INCREDIBLE! From our initial meeting we felt completely comfortable. The whole team, lead by Florio, is outstanding- they are the perfect blend of professional and fun. Every time I emailed Lighthouse, I received a prompt reply- no matter the day or time. I received our wedding photos today and they are perfect! I am so glad we had Lighthouse, and after using them, I could never use anyone else. Highly recommend!

There are no words to describe how AMAZING Florio and the entire team at Lighthouse Photography are. I knew immediately after meeting with him that we would work well together and I am glad I trusted my instinct. He was patient, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in my husband and I. Florio listened to EVERY single detail I gave and I felt 100 percent confident in his abilities to capture all the special pictures I requested. Even though I was adamant on limiting the amount of "formal" shots, he suggested specific pictures and he was right. Each picture he took was meaningful and felt special; he really grasped my personality and the importance of my family members and friends. The day of my wedding went smoother than I could have ever imagined. Florio and Kurt showed up on time, with big smiles on their faces, and never once disrupted the flow of my day. They were polite to all my guests and were never intrusive. I am SO excited to see my pictures and cannot wait to have them for the rest of my life. I would highly recommend Florio and Lighthouse to anyone looking for a high quality, genuine photographer.

Florio and his team are AMAZING. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and Florio and his team captured all the moments. The whole team helped make the flow of our day relaxing.
We worked with Florio for our engagement photos before the wedding and he made my husband and I feel so comfortable, We are thrilled we were able to work with him again on our wedding day. He has an innate sense of humor, and ability to make everyone smile
Our videographer was so easy to work with and I am sure he captured each moment perfectly. The rest of the Lighthouse team was equally amazing. Thank you so much for all of your hard work staging and prepping and organize all of us through out the day.

We can't wait to see our teasers and our all photos!

We were lucky enough to book Florio for our wedding, who is just amazing. He also did our engagement shoot, so we knew we were in good hands for the wedding. I gotta say... I usually hate having my picture taken, but Florio and his team helped to make the whole process fun and natural. We really had a great time with them and trusted in them completely. They did not disappoint! In the end, we got over 2,000 pictures back in less than a month after the wedding, and they are all beautiful. There are so many amazing shots, and everything that I wanted was captured. It’s just so great to be able to relive the day through their amazing photos. Thank you, Lighthouse! You really were a big part of what made our day so special.

So extremely happy after using Lighthouse Photography for both our engagement photos and our wedding! Florio was our main shooter and worked alongside Megan and Kurt. LOVED them all! The photos were absolutely beautiful and being the control freak that I am, I gave them a list of around 100 must have photos. Florio and his team managed to get EVERY SINGLE one! I felt extremely comfortable with them even when posing in a ridiculous way! I'm very thankful I did too because the pictures are absolutely flawless! Prompt, professional and overall a pleasure to work with! Thank you for everything Lighthouse!
