Tommy Herren and his lighting geek crew give new meaning to the term ‘Contractor.’ Not only do they deliver top quality service, but they are reliable and show up when they say they will.

Once you are a Lighting Geek customer, Tommy ensures your needs are always taken care of, whether it’s the replacement of a lightbulb hours before a party or whether it’s coming out at night to check out the angles of the light to ensure the solution is perfect - Tommy is always there to provide over-the-top customer service. We have received so many compliments regarding our lighting and we owe it all to the Lighting Geek!

The Yard At Night Looks Like a Resort

Hiring the Lighting Geek has completely transformed my yard. Tommy really understands the play of light, and was able to place lights in areas I would never have considered – the result is amazing. My neighbor’s trees, which I never really noticed before, are now highlights of my yard, as they are uplit in a way that makes them beautiful accessories to my space. Walls and fences look bright and welcoming, and the yard at night looks like a resort….it’s just beautiful. On the practical side, he works well in small spaces (my yard is not large) and is willing to work his magic within your budget (although you’ll end up wanting more after you see the result). Moreover, all work was done promptly, with sensitivity to plants, structures, and animals that coexist in the yard.

This Place Looks Like Disneyland

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for the work that you did on out backyard. The placement and quality of the lighting makes all the difference in the world. A friend and his wife came into our backyard and stated, ‘WOW! Lighting is everything. This place looks like Disneyland!’ We enjoy sitting outside in the evening with the tunes on low and the waterfall running.
