Our wedding was November 5th at Cairnwood Estates. Having worked with Lightyear on numerous weddings in the past made the decision to choose them for our own wedding that much easier! Nate and his team were amazing and on top of everything from start to finish. Leon and I cannot thank you enough for everything that you did on Saturday to make our wedding absolutely perfect! We are so grateful for your hard work in capturing every moment that was so precious to us. We cannot wait to see the rest of the photos and of course the video! The tent took my breath away and brought me to tears so I'm sure you capturing all of those details will bring me to tears again! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but we were incredibly speechless when we saw what Nathan and the Lightyear team were able to capture from our wedding.

Nathan is the type of person that genuinely loves photography and videography. He is great at capturing special moments and will do whatever it takes to make sure he can do so. He has extensive experience with Hindu South Asian weddings, which became evident during our initial conversations with him. Nathan and Thanh were able to provide suggestions to ensure we did not have any big unwanted surprises on our wedding day. At the same token, Nathan was willing to work with any idea we had and was able to manage our families (a huge task in itself as they don't like pictures) and our many guests to capture the moments throughout the day.

Most importantly is their ability to not only take a great picture, but ease our minds and make the picture taking process very fun. For those who have not gone through this yet, posing and taking pictures is very awkward, especially if you are not comfortable with the photographer. But, when we were with Nathan and Thanh, everything felt so natural and you can see the comfort in each of our pictures.

Thank you again, Nathan, Thanh, and the entire Lightyear team for helping us relive the most important day of our lives.

Nathan and his team were fantastic to work with! We knew we were in good hands when he called from vacation in Hawaii the week before our wedding to go over our timeline and make sure we were comfortable with the plan. He is very creative and the few previews we got of the scenes already looked amazing. His team often works without you even noticing them and we are very excited to see what they will create to showcase our wedding.

We chose Lightyear Studio to capture our special day at the sweetest place on earth, Hershey, PA. I've never seen anyone so passionate about what they do. Because of this passion, I knew the pictures would turn out great. I could not be anymore happier. I've received so many compliments on how beautiful my wedding pictures are. These photos are not just any wedding photos but there is a creative/artistic element to them that just makes you go, "wow!" Nathan, Thanh, and the rest of the Lightyear Team did an outstanding job and I would highly recommend them for your wedding. We used them for both their photography and cinematography services. We've only seen the pictures and are so excited to see the video!

Update...
I recently received our video and felt that it would not do them justice, if I did not update my review. Not only did Lightyear Studio produced fantastic photographs of our wedding day, they did an amazing job with our cinematic video. I can’t tell you how many times my husband and I have watched the video; its that good! It captured “our story” beautifully and like the photographs, our family and friends continue to rave about it. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. For us, photography/videography were among the three most important items, so a large chunk of our wedding budget went towards this. Looking back, I’m glad this was the case because everything happened so fast that day that I barely remember it all. Fortunately, Lightyear Studio was there to capture these cherishing memories! Think about it, will the flowers, limos, linens, etc be worth it down the road? Yes, it may be pricey; however, you really get what you pay for. Lightyear Studio was worth every single penny! Don’t let this stop you, they will work with you to customize a package that is fitting. We’ve made many decisions when it came to our wedding, choosing Lightyear Studio was by far one of the best!!!

Mark and I are truly blown away at the artistry and emotion that you were able to capture in our wedding video! It is AMAZING! I love that you centered the video around the speeches - it really brings the day back to us again and gives us memories that we will cherish forever. We shared it with our families and most everyone was crying watching the video - it is so unbelievable! Mark and I think it should be played in a theater! You are genius!

Lightyear Studio shot our wedding in Jersey City in May and we can't praise them enough. Communication and promptness are super important to couples planning a wedding and Thanh and Nathan were always available prior to the wedding and gave us really helpful advice when it came to the timing of our first look and family/ bridal party pictures. We've only seen the sneak peak pictures so far, but our photographer Vlad got beautiful shots of things where I didn't even realize he was there! He was also really deft at making sure he got the pictures he needed while letting us enjoy the night which we really appreciated. Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!

We were so honored to have the opportunity to work with such a compassionate & fun team as Lightyear Studio! I, personally have been following & have always been such a huge fan of their work since the beginning so we were ecstatic they were available to capture our special day for us. We ultimately felt like movie stars on our wedding day! Nathan & Thanh made us feel so comfortable and we just loved their photographic eye and attention to detail. Their enthusiasm & spontaneity really made it so fun and very easy to work with them. You can truly witness that they love what they do. We honestly could not have asked for a better team to help us capture and fulfill our special day. We just saw our proofs and needless to say, were not surprised with the outcome! Their photos are truly nothing less than perfection. They are not just photographers, they are true artist's. You will not be disappointed w/Lightyear, I can promise you that! Highly recommended.

I can't say enough great things about the entire Lightyear Studio team! They were incredibly easy and a lot of fun to work with from the first time we met with them. The entire team is incredibly professional and passionate about what they do. They know what they are doing and they do it well! They wanted our pictures and video to capture "our story" and they truly did just that. My husband and I were absolutely blown away when we saw our photos. They are simply stunning. They captured all of the special moments of our wedding day in a way that was so genuine and beautiful. The pictures are breathtaking and I am so thrilled with how the entire day went! It is obvious to see through their work and what they deliver that they are the best at what they do and that they truly enjoy it. I would absolutely recommend Lightyear for any event. The price is right and you get WAY MORE than you pay for! I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you again Lightyear team! It was truly an honor to have you there to document our story on our wedding day.
