The Lifetyme Story
At Lifetyme Photo and Video, “Memories that last a Lifetyme” has been our motto for over five decades. Our goal has always been to provide an affordable product and superior service to our valued customers.
Lifetyme Photo & Video is a third generation family-owned business that is run by Jay and Jan Grosholz and their son Allen. LPV’s story began in the 1960s when Jay’s father was a newborn photographer for Middlesex General Hospital, now Robert Wood Johnson, in New Brunswick. As word spread and demand increased, his photography services grew to include bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings and sweet 16 celebrations. In 1987, Jay took over the family business after his father retired, and he quickly realized that the LPV reputation of quality and service had led to generations of families utilizing their services. People who were photographed as newborns by Jay’s father, had returned to Lifetyme for their own photography needs. In today’s world you need someone with longevity and experience – you have found it in us! LPV is truly your family photographer.

Dear Jay, Stan, Tony, and the rest of the Lifetyme crew,
How can we thank you for the outstanding professionalism you exhibited for our wedding and for the beautiful final product? You are truly in a class by yourselves, and the best way we know to thank you is by recommending (and insisting) that our friends and family use you for their events. You made a difficult process easy and comfortable, and we appreciate a job well done and your warm wishes as we begin our life together.
My husband and I first met Jay at a bridal show about a year before our wedding. We knew right away that this was the company for us. We were made to feel like part of the family from the very beginning and didn’t feel like they were forcing unnecessary charges on us like most vendors do. Jay was helpful and caring when we sat down with him to plan out our photo and video package. The day of the wedding we had Craig as our photographer. Not only did he take over 1,000 beautiful photos, but he did the impossible, and got my husband to actually smile! My biggest concern was that our photos would come out look stiff and posed, but Craig made us all feel so comfortable that you can actually feel the love when you look at the photos. He also managed to capture some amazing candid moments and I have these pictures to cherish for the rest of my life and share with my loved ones. On top of all of that, my photos were ready within a week of my wedding! You can’t get this type of service anywhere else, and I will definitely be using them again in the future!!
Dear Steven, Jay, and Lifetyme staff,
Thank you so much for preserving our wedding memories with such wonderful service and photos. Steve was amazing! He was a total professional. He listened to everything we wanted, but didn’t hesitate to offer and use his professional judgment. Thanks again!
Wow, wow, wow! I love my pictures. You did a beautiful job and we were very lucky to have had you. There is not one picture I could complain about. Thank you for capturing every moment, and our video is awesome as well. We have watched it a few times and can’t get enough. Thank you again for making sure I could remember my wedding day!!
You were the “life saver” at our wedding! Thank you so much not only for beautiful photos, but also for holding things together. May God bless you and your wife.
