  • We're so glad we partnered with Seth at Strands of Light for our wedding photos! We chose him because we liked the aesthetic of his gallery and the flexibility of his photo/video packages. We had such a fun time doing our photos both for our engagement shoot and for our wedding. When we ran behind on the big day, Seth reassured us and kept us on task. The photos we've received so far are gorgeous! Our friends and family can't stop complimenting them.

    TOO KIND! Thank you, Lucy! :D edit: Ok, well Wedding Wire is saying I need a min. of 100 Characters to post a reply. Hopefully this works!

  • Seth from Strands of Light truly helped make our wedding day a success. He was flexible with our date change due and then a scaled-down wedding due to COVID. His easy-going and professional manner set us at ease and the photos and video turned out wonderfully. We found he has a great artistic eye for landscape and design as well as for typical wedding portraits. Our photos and videos had a short turn-around time and communication was easy. We would highly recommend Strands of Light for someone’s special event.

  • Seth was wonderful to work with and helped us to capture beautiful images of our special day. Seth's portfolio stood out to us as we were looking for a photographer because he seemed to have an eye for non-traditional/creative shots while still being capable of the more standard wedding photos. We also were also intrigued by his ability to shoot in low-light situations, since out wedding was going to be dimly lit and indoors. It also didn't hurt that he offers very competitive rates for the quality he delivers. We got everything we asked for and more. Seth was responsive and attentive. He made himself available to tour the venue and another location for pre-wedding photos. He accommodated all of our requests while also offering his expert opinion based on his experience. The photos came back looking great - our families have been loving reliving the evening through Seth's efforts!

  • Hiring Strands of Light for do our videography was one of THE BEST decisions we made for our wedding. Seth is super communicative and a top-notch professional. He responds very quickly to emails (sometimes within minutes) and has a fantastic problem solving attitude. There are many creative professionals out there who have talent but are difficult to work with, Seth is one of those rare gems who has immense creative vision AND is incredibly personable. Seth also goes above and beyond. Not only did he come early to setup and with a ton of great shot ideas, he somehow found time to help resolve a bunch of hiccups that cropped up behind the scenes. After the wedding, several groomsmen and bridesmaids told me how he'd helped the DJ set up sound properly, found the venue coordinator to straighten out a locked door snafu, and generally saved the day in a million tiny ways. I had no idea lot of these things had happened day-of - he just stepped in and did it. Long story short...he does... Read more

  • Seth was absolutely incredible. Not only does he have a great eye for where and when to capture the perfect picture, he also was just fun to hang out with. My husband and I were initially a little nervous in front of the camera but Seth made us feel very comfortable. Our photos are beautiful and we couldn't possibly be happier. We very highly recommend Strands of Light!

  • We hired Seth for both our engagement shoot and our wedding this past June. He is a wonderful photographer with a great personality (which was a nice bonus) and we loved working with him. He really cares about his clients and it is very obvious in his work. The pictures turned out beautiful. He is very calm and collected. He remained very calm when I was freaking out about being late to the first look and some other timeline issues which are inevitable on your wedding. We cannot recommend him enough.

  • Seth absolutely CRUSHED IT on our wedding! He and his team Showed up to handle photo and video for our big day, and we can not stop watching the video - like, at all. I can't emphasize just how nice it was to have a company that did both. We didn't have to worry about coordinating with 2 different companies - it was all under one company and that took the weight off of us in so many ways. Seth was incredibly responsive on emails calls and texts leading up to the wedding day. We truly didn't have to worry about anything in regards to photo and video. BOOK STRANDS OF LIGHT - you WILL not regret it!!

  • Seth and Ian are phenomenal at what they do! My fiance and I recently had our engagement photos taken and we received our proofs within a week's time. Both Seth and Ian were tremendously responsive and willing to handle any of our questions. The day we went to shoot our photos the weather was cloudy and a little wet, but Ian was still able to create some really beautiful shots. All in all, we are so happy with our decision to work with Strands of Light and we're excited to work with this team for our upcoming wedding in 2018!

  • Strands of Light stood out to us because of their unique photography and editing style. Their pictures were higher quality compared to the other cliche portfolios. We did an engagement shoot with Seth at a local park, and the pictures turned out amazing. We immediately booked him for our wedding. My husband and I are usually camera shy, but we felt so comfortable working with Seth. He knew exactly how to ask us to pose, without looking awkward. Seth really captured all the emotion on our wedding day. I never once had to worry about anything. Seth had a good eye for beautiful spots to take photos. He was very professional and took the lead on directing us during our photos. We received our photos back very quickly - a little over two weeks from our wedding date. During our pictures, Seth would say "be GQ" or "be stoic", and the pictures really do reflect what he asked! They are amazing!! We could not have asked for anything more. I highly recommend Strands of Light Photography. Especial... Read more

  • I can't say enough great things about Seth and his team! I had to find a photographer just a few months before my wedding due to some unexpected circumstances. Seth was empathetic to our situation and went beyond the call of duty to help us out. He was extremely responsive from the beginning, all the way through the wedding, and even afterwards, which I found was rare among vendors! The communication was excellent and the customer service was absolutely seamless. Seth answered every question I had without hesitation. He was professional, friendly, and fun, and he helped us (two people who are not photogenic whatsoever) relax and take beautiful pictures! The pictures that Seth delivered (in a very short turnaround time!) are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. I couldn't possibly be happier with pictures of my wedding day. They are classic and elegant, and I feel like they completely capture my husband and I as a couple. Also, a photographer was there to capture every moment imaginable, often witho... Read more

  • We chose Strands of Light as our photographer after seeing examples of their work online. We loved the photos and editing style. Leading up to the wedding, everything was seamless. Seth was sure to answer any questions or concerns that I had in a timely manner. I never once had to worry about anything. There was also a very detailed questionnaire we filled out to ensure our photographer, Meredith, was well informed the day of. Meredith was so sweet and had such a good eye for beautiful spots to take photos on our wedding day. She was very professional and took the lead on directing us during our photos. We received our photos back very quickly - a little over two weeks from our wedding date. They took our breathe away! I was so nervous to see how I looked in the photos, but they made me feel so gorgeous! Our friends and family are also in awe of how beautiful they turned out. We could not have asked for anything more. I highly recommend Strands of Light Photography!

  • I hired Seth to photograph my wedding..... and man, this guy knows what he’s doing. Excellent communication prior to the date, prompt on arrival, very diligent in his organization of my motley crew of a wedding party, and fast turnaround on the photos. HIGHLY recommended.

  • We were really happy with our engagement photos!!! Great value for money, delivered the photos in less than a week, and the results were beyond expectations! Not only was Seth so responsive and easy to work with, he is so customer oriented, and was able to help me with specific photo treatment that I needed. The shoot was done in WA by Jacki, also another amazing photographer to work with. She made it so fun and relaxing for us throughout the shoot that I would do it all over again. Overall- simply one of the best teams I’ve ever worked with! I would highly recommend them!

  • Seth did our engagement photos and we could not be happier with the result! I love unique photography and Seth is incredibly talented in using natural light and making moments look extra special. When I first talked to Seth I told him that we didn't want cliche engagement photos and although we met in DC we didn't want to do the typical monument photoshoot. He immediately suggested some great ideas for doing our photos a more nature based setting and he ended up having us shoot in a beautiful park in MD. The day of our engagement shoot was the HOTTEST day of the summer! Despite the sweat, humidity and heat Seth did an amazing job capturing some great moments and still made us look great. He even dealt with our two hyperactive dogs that we brought along with us to get into a photo or two. I highly recommend Seth if you are looking for a creative eye and photos that are unique and beautiful!

  • I could not be happier about having Seth photograph our wedding. I contacted him a little under a year before the wedding and he was very quick to respond and confirm the date. Over the months leading up to the wedding, Seth was so patient and understanding of how bad I was at keeping in contact and following deadlines. He was very helpful in reminding be of when I needed to finish filling out the forms he'd sent. The day of our wedding, someone hit his rental car and he STILL showed up ready to go. Because of the distance, my husband and I hadn't met him until the wedding day. But I felt like I'd known him for ages! We are not really photo people (didn't even get engagement photos) so we definitely didn't have any idea what we were doing. Seth made us feel comfortable and we had so much fun. He truly went above and beyond for our wedding and I am more than grateful for everything he did. I HIGHLY recommend Seth and if you are lucky enough to get him for your wedding, then congrats to ...
