    Perfect photos!

    We had such a great time with Light Impressions! We found them through our venue (the Madison Hotel) as they are one of their preferred vendors, and it was easy to see why when we looked at their work. Their more natural, candid style fit exactly what we were looking for.

    We had both engagement photos and wedding photos done and they all came out amazing. Going through our proofs was so exciting. Because of Covid, we haven't gotten our film photos from the wedding just yet, but we're sure they'll be gorgeous! Choosing photos for our albums is going to be difficult because there's so many that we love.

    We would absolutely recommend Light Impressions to our friends and anyone else looking for a photographer. They were wonderful to work with and our photos are wonderful and exactly what we wished for!

    Wonderful!

    Peter was wonderful to work with. He listened to what we wanted and gave us great advice. He handled the day-of timeline and made sure all of our vendors worked together. He brought a sense of calm and was patient when things went off schedule. He has already sent us a few photos and we LOVE every single one. We are so excited to see the final proofs. I would definitely recommend working with Peter to any friend.

    Lighting Impressions was Fantastic

    Peter has an amazing perspective of catching all the precious moments. He made our wedding experience seamless. He had great awareness of all the significant people in the Wedding Party, and caught all the right shots. We are from New Jersey, and with his extensive experience, he knew the venue like the back of his hand [The Conservatory at the Madison Hotel]. There should be no hesitation in choosing Peter of Light Impressions! He is such a friendly person and will make you feel at ease on your most significant day!

    Professional, Talented and a Pleasure to Work With!

    This past November I got married in the Conservatory at the Madison Hotel. We booked Light Impressions shortly after setting our date based on Peter's incredible pictures and experience at this venue. In the time leading up to our big day, Peter & Colette were incredibly helpful with letting us know how the day would go, and providing very specific advice, that only someone who has been doing this for so long would know. My wedding day went by seamlessly, and I know it is in large part to Peter's ability to keep everything under control, and keep things moving along. He is extremely professional, but very personable and friendly. Our wedding pictures came out wonderful, and really captured the day the way we wanted it to. Not to mention, we got them back very timely! Even post-wedding thank yous & photo album planning has been great. You can't go wrong with Light Impressions!

    Highly Skilled Photographer

    My wife and I had selected Light Impressions Photography for our wedding last fall -- and we couldn't be more pleased with the results!

    Months prior to the wedding, we sat down with Peter to discuss what we were looking for in a photographer, and he was incredibly receptive. We offered plenty of options (e.g. black & white, etc.) and worked with us to determine how the night would be photographed. He even offered advice on uplighting, which drastically improved how the night (and our pictures!) turned out.

    On the day of the wedding, Peter was incredibly organized. He knew exactly what to do in case of rain (which we did have!) and was excellent at capturing us in our most candid moments. Plus, during the ceremony and reception, you didn't even know he was there -- but he still managed to grab the best pictures. He was that good.

    In the end, the pictures turned out gorgeous, and we couldn't recommend Light Impressions enough. Many thanks to Peter and his crew!

    Beautiful photos!

    We hired Light Impression for our wedding in October 2018 on recommendation from our venue and are so happy that we did! The pictures that Peter took of our big day are absolutely beautiful. He made us feel super comfortable from the first meeting up through the day of the wedding. He has a great system in place that helps the entire day/process run smoothly. We wrote out all of the posed photos we wanted with our family, friends, and wedding party so that no important pictures were missed. But he was also accommodating if we wanted to include more posed photos throughout the cocktail hour and reception. It took us about 6 weeks to see our photos but it was definitely worth the wait, there was a great balance of posed and candid photos. Peter is a true professional and really gives you a personalized touch.

    A Great Experience

    Peter and Colette provided my wife and I with a fantastic experience on our wedding day. Colette made planning easy and Peter did a fantastic job of getting great shots with minimal direction. He has a great eye for action shots and let鈥檚 you enjoy the day while he captures it for you.

    Great Experience with Light Impressions

    I really enjoyed working with Peter and Collette at Light Impressions for our wedding photos. I do not like getting my picture taken, but Peter put me very much at ease and our photos were great. The photos I like the most are the ones where Peter was just "observing"... he would just move around the room and take great shots. The whole process was quite easy from start to finish, and I appreciated that they have a lot of options available to customize the package.

    Great find!

    We can't thank Peter enough for doing such a great job on our special day! From the beginning, working with Light Impressions was a comfortable and personal experience. The professionalism and organized manner of work helped the process go smoothly and stress free.
    We felt we got great work for great value!

    Peter from Lightimpressions Photography is very professional, patient explaining what he is going to do in covering the event , up till the final production of the Album. I asked him to come one hour before the party to take family pictures first. He came on time, and left when the party was over.
    I am happy with Peter's professional service.

    We are Lucky to Have Found Light Impressions

    When we met Peter Podezwa at the wedding expo at The Olde Mill Inn in Bernardsville, NJ, we were very impressed by his demeanor and product (he had a number of sample albums on view). Peter came across as easy going yet extremely professional. He also told us that he works in conjunction with a videographer who charges $800 when he works with Peter. We liked that idea, and price, and we decided that we liked him
    and his work, so we decided to go with him as our photographer, and with Kevin Hodap as our videographer. Now, after working with him, and Kevin, and receiving our albums and video, we are extremely glad that we did.

    First, understand that they do exist as separate entities, so I'll
    address them as such here, but Kevin does charge $800 ($900 if you want BluRay) if you hire him and are working with Peter.

    From the beginning, Peter displayed exemplary professionalism. He asked us questions to get an idea of who we were and what we wanted and expected, but he also clearly had a plan of his own and a vision based on his experience and artistic sensibility. He stressed to us that he would not be intrusive, but would work to capture, along with the traditional posed shots, key moments naturally and candidly. Wow, is that the truth. Never, on our wedding day was Peter in the way or obtrusive. Rather, he was helpful with key directions and suggestions, and willing to take any shot we might ask for. He worked beautifully with family, and provided us with helpful instructions as to when and how to gather everyone most efficiently.
    When the time came (when we finally got our act together) to choose our pics and lay out our albums, Peter's personality and artistry really had a chance to shine. We went to his house, where we conversed and consulted with him and his wife Collette (who is also very helpful), and he guided us through the process of using our chosen pictures to set up our album and albums for our parents. It was simple, and painless, and boy did it produce results. We knew we could hardly go wrong with the great pictures we chose from, but we got albums that even exceeded our expectations. Both sets of parents were also VERY pleased with their books.

    We really cannot say enough about our experience with Light
    Impressions (Peter's company). He is incredibly easy to work with and brings top notch artistic talent and a wealth of experience to his work, and he cares. He truly works to provide you with what YOU want, and has the ability to help you decide what that is, and to come through with the approach and the product. We are very glad that we made the choice that we did and are grateful to Peter and Collette for their effort and for making our albums the beautiful record of our wedding day that they are.

    As for Kevin the videographer, our video is also a major success. You can't find someone easier to work with, and he worked in tandem with Peter on the big day as if they were one person. How does a videographer stay out of the way and yet capture every big moment? Kevin did. He moved about so naturally that we never even noticed him, and yet the video shows that he was right there to capture everything we would want to see of our wedding day. Again, as with Peter, he knows what he is doing, enough to be able to give simple directions, and to pursue his own avenues to achieve our desired objective. Bottom line--he is an incredibly nice guy who really came through with a terrific piece of work.

    We HIGHLY recommend Peter Podezwa and Kevin Hodap. They did great work for us and will make you very happy with your choice.
