Long after the cake is eaten and the flowers are thrown away, you’ll be looking at your wedding photos and remembering exactly how you felt that day. Your wedding photos should reflect who you are. They should be just as unique as your wedding.
We all are inspired by all the beautiful wedding photography out there. It can be easy to forget that many of those photos are the result of hours of staging. We’re guessing you don’t want to spend your wedding day standing in one pose while we take the photo over and over to get one that is magazine-perfect. You would like to spend it celebrating with the people you love. We would like the same thing. We want your photos to capture your special day as it happens in a natural way. So we don’t suggest recreating specific photos
On your wedding day you have enough to think about and keep track of without worrying about the photos. Our goal is for you to let go, relax, and enjoy your wedding day. We will capture those beautiful memories forever. When you choose Lighthouse Photography we are making sure we understand what are your preferences. For example, when you imagine looking through your wedding photos in the coming years, do you want them to feel…
You don’t have to pick just one. You may want traditional posed photos, cute photos of the dancing and cake cutting, glamorous photos of just you and your sweetheart. The possibilities are endless. Please be sure to spend some time talking to us about the feeling that you want your photos to evoke. It will help us understand how we can help you perfectly capture your wedding memories.
The company was founded in the early 2000s by Florio Tilinca and his wife Monica. Their passion for the visual arts and their dedication to high quality imagery has helped propel the company as one of the most reputable wedding photography studios on Long Island.
Florio’s passion for upscale photography began in his childhood, where he was surrounded by gorgeous European architecture, art and literature. He was born in Bucharest and raised in Transylvania, Romania, where he met his wife Monica. Together, they started to passionately capture beauty and love at gorgeous venues. They established that Florio was to closely observe all of the companies wedding sessions, meanwhile Monica was to focus on the post production process of the company.
As you plan your dream wedding and add up the various costs involved, it is reasonable to consider implementing some cost-cutting measures.
But in regards to capturing your big day on camera, here are five reasons why you should never penny-pinch on your wedding photography by requesting your friend or family member with that fancy camera to help you out. Wedding photography is about telling a story. It is for this reason especially, why you should hire a professional wedding photographer.
OMG!!!! Have you heard? Sarah Jessica Parker was the shoe attendant for 3 lucky brides trying dresses at Kleinfeld. This was such an incredible surprise.
My husband and I LOVE the Lighthouse !!! We booked with them a year & a half before our wedding and we have enjoyed working with them ever since. Florio has made us feel as though we are family and has always been prompt with responses and any thing else we need! The team was professional and genuinely excited on our wedding which made working with them even more wonderful. We have only seen teasers from our wedding pictures thus far, but they are absolutely beautiful and we KNOW we will be impressed with all of the pictures and the video. I would recommend them to my friends, my family, to every one!! –

Absolutely love Lighthouse Photography!!! Monica was always fantastic to work with. Our main photographer was Joe, who made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and he made the shoot super fun. For our wedding we got to work with Joe again, and this time Kevin joined as our second photographer and Jonathan for video. Needless to say we couldn’t have picked a better team to capture our wedding – this is the best team on Long Island!!!

Florio and his team were absolutely incredible, he captured everything we were looking for and we had so much fun working with them on our wedding. Our pictures are absolutely stunning and I haven’t been able to stop looking at them, many of our friends have said they are some of the most beautiful wedding photos they’ve ever seen. I would recommend Lighthouse a million times over!

The Lighthouse team is amazing! We booked Florio and company 18 months before our August wedding and since then, it has really been a dream to work with them. From the first meeting, to our engagement photos with Florio, to our wedding photos, thank you cards, video and soon-to-be albums, they made the entire process as easy and stress-free as possible. Monica and I were in contact often – she is sweet, professional, punctual and a delight to work with! Florio’s vibrant personality and sense of humor made us feel comfortable in front of the camera during both our engagement photos and on our wedding day. Flora and his team did a great job not only of capturing our wedding perfectly, but also keeping us on time/on a schedule throughout. He has such a talent and creative eye – we were so happy with the way our pictures came out and will treasure them for years and years to come! We made the best decision in booking Lighthouse for our wedding!

We booked this company after working with Florio in another wedding my husband and I were in. After seeing how he handled my girlfriends special day I knew I wanted him to capture my wedding. We were lucky enough to have Florio and Luis and they were both professional, fast, perfectionists, and passionate. They made sure the shots and lighting were exquisite. They took special requests all day long as well as capturing all the moments one would want on their wedding day. Besides actually getting married the photographer is the most important part of the wedding as they will capture the moments you’ll cherish for life and look back upon. We know that we had the best with this company and would recommend them if you want to have fun and have the most beautiful pictures you could dream of ! They made sure to be efficient without rushing but making sure we enjoyed our party as much as possible. We are looking forward to seeing the memories captured by these amazing artists !!!! Thank you Florio and Luis we loved working with you both !! – Rob and Lindsey Semprini

Absolutely adore Lighthouse !! Florio and Monica are a pleasure to work with. They came highly recommend by a few friends of ours and we were not dissapointed. We knew from the moment we met them that we wanted them to do our wedding. Monica and Florio were so welcoming and we really vibed with them both. My January winter wedding was nothing short of magical and the lighthouse team played a huge part in that! We are forever grateful !

One of the best decisions we made throughout the wedding planning process was choosing Lighthouse. From the start, Monica was a pleasure to work with to design the perfect photography and videography package for us. She stayed involved throughout the entire planning process, helping schedule our engagement shoot and coordinating the day-of schedule for our wedding. Our lead photography was Florio, the owner. I cannot say enough wonderful thing about Florio. His expertise is obvious and his outgoing personality and enthusiasm were infectious. He made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera, something we are not used to, at all! We also had the pleasure of working with Louis (2nd photographer), Danielle (assistant) and Jonathan (videographer) on our wedding, who were also incredibly professional and lovely to work with. We received our wedding photos less than two months after the wedding and are already working on our albums! The Lighthouse team beautifully captured the best day of our lives so far and we are so very grateful. Thank you again for providing us with a means to relive the most magical day over and over again.
