We used Lafayette Hill Studios for our daughter's bat mitzvah montage and video of our entire event. Ben and Andrew were fantastic to work with! They were both so accomodating and positive from start to finish. During our event they were very professional and supportive as well. The bat mitzvah video and teaser they supplied didn't miss a thing and the overall look was both fun and artistic. Hiring lafayette Hill studios for your special event is a no-brainer.

We used Lafayette Hill Studios for photography, videography and photographer for a open photobooth. Michele, Jack, Jonathan (video) were amazing. They captured the whole day. It was a long day with lots of guest and they were every where. Traveling around the city and getting the perfect picture was a breeze for them. They knew what we needed to do to get the picture. We have only seen some and we are in love. We can't wait to see our video and all of the photos. I can't thank Michelle and Jack for capturing moments we will never forget and staying the WHOLE day. We made our own photo booth background but we got another one of the people to take pictures and print them for my guest. So glad we went with them!

I can not begin to tell you how happy I am with the work Paul Csihas did. As a matter of fact, I just received the sample of my album and it is fantastic. When I look at the album, it immediately reminds me of how much fun we had at the party. Paul captured so many terrific moments as well as my son's personality. Things that I missed that day were in the pictures really allowing me to see all aspects of our party. It was really difficult to pick pictures, there were so many good ones. He was very patient and persistent. Paul has a great eye on where to set up a shot as well as how to make some of them really fun. He did his research because we also chose to take pictures around new york city before the event. He picked great spots in the locations we wanted (he went the day before to scope it out!) and used interesting camera angles. My husband who is a photography buff and quite critical, loved Paul's work. The album is beautiful. The way Monique laid it out was really interesting and different. I love Paul’s mix of black and white with the color. I could not be happier or recommend Lafayette Hill Studios more highly!!

Originally I didn't want video, then I realized how much I wanted captured that day -- from the historic neighborhood where we married, to the beautiful church, to the reception and more. I wanted to have my friends and family on film, giving their best wishes. I wanted to see the day unfold from other perspectives, so I decided to get a video. There are tons of companies out there, and I found Lafayette Hill studios through Wedding Wire. I met with Ben Yoblick who was the ultimate non-salesman and just a great, professional guy. He reviewed all the services with me, didn't try to talk me into anything, and listened to what I wanted. We remained in touch after I signed the contract, then again in person once I was assigned a videographer. We had Jack H. film our wedding and he was great as well, very low-key, non-intrusive, did exactly what we wanted. I keep stressing now that I've been through the wedding process that a bride and groom must invest in professionals who know their stuff so you can relax and enjoy your wedding, knowing everything is in good hands. I wanted shots of the historic neighborhood where we got married (Old City in Philadelphia), and the river, etc. and Jack honored all my requests. He thought of unique shots but didn't make us stage everything. We were so happy with the service. We haven't received the wedding video yet, but we can't wait to see the final product. If you are getting married in the Philadelphia area or beyond, contact Lafayette Hill and support this family business that gets it right!

I did not use Lafayette Hill Studios for a wedding, but I have used them for 2 and now my 3rd bar/bat mitzvah...which in today standards...are weddings. The staff at Lafayette Hill Studios really know their craft. They come to the event looking professional and put on a professional job. From start to finish they are the best photograhers around. There is always more than one photographer so they are able to capture the entire event. One photographer is not running around the room taking one picture while something very memorable is happening somewhere else at the celebration. They have more than one photographer and they are sure to capture every memorable event of the celebration. Their final product is also very well thought out. Time and care is taken with every photo and with every layout in the final albums. I am a third time returning client and I could only hope they are still around for the next celebrations of my children....their weddings. You will really miss out if you decide to choose another vendor. They are the best!!!! Truely......

Thank you so very much to Paul and his team at Lafayette Studios for doing such a beautiful job with our photos and videography on our wedding day. Paul even went above and beyond to drive us to take pictures with City Hall when our reception had concluded late in the night. We sincerely appreciate the Lafayette Studios team making us feel like royalty on our special day.

Jack said... 
This studio did an incredible job for us. My wife and I didn't really know a whole lot about professional wedding photography and videography and were intimidated the prices we saw when we started looking. But Paul brought us in to meet with him at the studio, showed us examples of their work, and explained in detail the whole process and answered every question we had and it was clear that they had the chemistry and quality that we were hoping to find. On our big day, they were always at the right places at the right times to catch every special moment and the final product was amazing! I think it was about 20 seconds in seeing our video for the first time when the tears started. And the detail and artistry that they crafted our wedding album with was breathtaking. Plus, the quality of the material used means we'll be able to pass it down through the generations intact. I could go on and on, but the point is they are true professionals and captured our wedding in a way we could've only dreamed.

These guys are amazing! Paul is "the man"! Starting with the engagement photos and continuing through the wedding, he really caught the moment. Paul and crew are real professionals. They know where to be to get the perfect picture. The day of the wedding, they arrived to take pictures of the bridal party getting ready at 10am and did not stop taking pictures until 11:30pm. Highly recommend you check-out their studio and samples. (We did.) You won’t want to use anyone else! The albums that they create are second to none. Their layout style and positioning tell the story much better than most photographers that just place pictures on the pages. People are blown away by the albums. You really feel it. Just AWESOME! (Not just another “me too” album like you get from most other photographers or online.) We also used Lafayette Hill Studios for the video as well. Mike and his crew go the extra mile. Having 2 video cameras makes a difference. They tend to catch many of the side moments that one camera might miss. They also get 2 angles on the main events leading to a much better result. It is obvious that they spent countless hours splicing and editing film to create a perfect story. After the event is over, the pictures and videos frame the lasting memories. Lafayette Hill Studios photographers and videographers rise above the crowd. Not just taking pictures and videos . . . but capturing the moment and telling your story. Many photographers and videographers talk the talk. These guys walk the walk. Highly, highly recommend! BTW, we are not related or have any connection . . . first time using Lafayette Hill Studios . . . might seem like this review is too good . . . but they earned it! My daughter the bride is soooooo happy! (Isn’t that what counts!)

We thought Paul and his team did a FANTASTIC job!! Paul was a pleasure to work with and very flexible. He usually does his engagement photos in a park, and we asked to do them throughout the city. He was very accommodating, and took us to multiple locations around the city. On the wedding day, he was GREAT! Although he was "all over" he was all over in a good way! I feel as though he captured so many amazing moments and was always ready to snap away. A lot of people feel as though their photographer gets in the way, but we NEVER felt that way about Paul and his team. This was also the case with the videographer. He was never in the way, and we never felt as though he was a burden on the day. They captured so many great moments, and were VERY creative. Paul is a perfect mix of business and fun. He doesnt let people goof off and is serious about getting the job done. But, he is very fun and humorous when taking his pictures. Paul gave us many options of photo books, and signing boards, etc. He offers a lot of options!! With that said, things get pricey, so consider what is most important to you. Keeping price in mind, Paul was extremely conscious of our budget and accommodating. He worked with us on price and we felt he was very generous. I absolutely recommend Lafayette Hill Studios for both photography and videography!!

Lafayette Studios is Top Notch for Photography and Videos. They are the best! We have used them for 2 events and we were quite happy with the results. They use the latest technology, lighting and equipment. They don't rush you, they make sure the shot or poses are just right. I have been told our pictures are beautiful all the time when friends and family view our pics and videos. We have wonderful memories we can cherish for years to come. I wouldn't use anyone else. Great value for the money. I used them for both of my kids Bar-Bat-Mitzvahs and I plan to use them again for the weddings! A+ A+ A+. Lafayette Studios just rocks.

Lafayette Hill Studios produced an amazing video for my wife and I. The creativity of the capture as well as the professionalism of the crew made for an amazing experience and an amazing product. We actually watch our wedding video! Many of our friends watch the video once and then it sits on the shelf. But for our wedding, Lafayette Hill created a piece that is entertaining and beautiful. So every now and a again, we take out our wedding, pop some popcorn, and relive that amazing day.

They did a wonderful job on the stills as well as the videography. I have wonderful photos and a lovely video that is a treasure to me and my family. I lost my sweet dear Mother two months after my wedding. The video and pictures captured her essence and beauty and I'll treasure them always. The wedding albumn is one of the nicest I have ever seen. The collages and overlays are tasteful and artful. The staff at Layfayette are top notch.

Thank you so much for providing professional and creative video and photography for our wedding! Paul really made us feel comfortable from the first time we spoke with him, and his pictures speak for themselves! Ben and the video crew created a great video that I show my friends every chance I get. Highly recommended!

Lafayette Hill Studios was awesome to work with for our wedding photography! With a busy summer and fall schedule, Paul squeezed in our engagement shoot 6 weeks before the wedding-- and had prints ready for us to display at the reception! Paul worked so hard on the day of our wedding to truly capture every moment. Everyone in the bridal party was in awe at how many pictures he took and how he and his assistant seemed to be EVERYWHERE, never missing a moment. Everyone at LHS is so friendly and helpful, you will NOT REGRET booking with them! Thanks Paul, Marilyn and Sid for helping to makeg my wedding day wonderful!

Paul was great! Starting from our engagement photo session, my husband and I were so happy we chose Lafayette Hill Studios - The engagement photos were beautiful. The day of the wedding, Paul and his assistants were right on time and seemed to be everywhere! So many pictures to choose from! He even offered to make a trip with us to Broad St. after the reception was over so that we could a picture with City Hall in the background at night. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

Well, this is the third time I have used Paul and Lafayette Hill Studios for my children's mitzvahs and I have referred Lafayette Hill many times. That alone pretty much speaks for itself! The photos are awesome! The quality of the finished product that you get from Paul is exceptional! PS-Allow plenty of time for the photo shoot...Paul loves to snap pictures and the extra time is well worth it!

Excellent Service, Easy to Work With, Beautiful Video    posted 1/19/2015 (updated 1/19/2015)

Lafayette Hill Studios is a family-run business with a lot of experience shooting weddings and other celebrations. From the beginning, I enjoyed working with them. There was no "sales pitch" or pressure. They listened to my needs and understood the parameters of my wedding. When I first started planning my day, I didn't include a videographer in my budget. I thought I couldn't afford that crisp, cinematic look that I had seen in some videos. But Lafayette Hill Studios presented affordable options with excellent service. I met with Ben Yoblick, who is the opposite of a salesman. He's a very genuine, professional person who spent time with me and my fiance when we had our first appointment. He didn't push any particular package and he worked with my budget, which I appreciated. He took into account every detail, all the moments I wanted captured, and the look and feel of the video that I wanted -- even the exact music. We met a couple times before the wedding day, and in between he was always responsive to my emails and calls. Some vendors take your order and you won't hear from them until the wedding day. Not Lafayette Hill Studios. I felt very confident that I was working with professionals who would deliver. On the wedding day, my videographer was Jack H. He was a very nice, non-intrusive guy. I would encourage all brides to think about who they hire for video, because, like the photographer, the videographer will be with you pretty much ALL day. Jack was great to work with, and he beautifully captured the essence of the wedding. He didn't make us do anything corny or that we didn't want to do. He got every detail that I wanted included in the video. Once the wedding was over, there wasn't a long turnaround time to get the final product. I've given copies to most of my family and wedding party and they love the video. I would highly recommend Lafayette Hill Studios to anyone!

Great Photographers    posted 11/13/2014

I picked the package to have two. Both ladies were very nice and energetic. They clearly knew what they were doing and got a lot of really nice pictures. Even made sure to catch the sunset in the background despite all the clouds.
