My name is Justin Geisel and I'm the owner of Lotus Wedding Photography. We are located in Lindenhurst Long Island. The reason I founded Lotus Weddings is simple, I love photographing weddings.
My father owned an automotive shop in Brooklyn NY. From as far back as I could remember, I wanted to be just like my dad. So I started my career as an auto mechanic. For the first few years it was great, I was excelling fast and moving up the ranks. After a while my back started hurting me, I went to the doctor and after many tests they informed me that I was going to need spinal surgery. I don't know if you have ever had spinal surgery, or any surgery for that matter, but it is an eye opening experience. As I was in the recovery process, I started feeling down, thinking, I am in my 20's, this should not be my life. The only thing that could get me out of this funk was looking at old photographs, after hours and hours of flipping through photo after photo it hit me, this is what I need to do with my life. Photography saved my life.
I started shooting everything, landscape, fashion, people, babies but everything clicked when I shot my first wedding.
I was instantly hooked. From starting with the bride and creating beautiful photographs of the shoes, rings, flowers and of course the wedding dress. To the ability to be able to capture intimate moments such as a father seeing is little girl in her wedding dress for the first time. It thrilled me to be able to shoot at awesome locations like churches that looked like castles, to beautiful beaches, and even different places like, gritty NYC streets, subway stations and of course some of the most amazing venues Long Island has to offer.
I started Lotus Wedding Photography because I want to be able to share your wedding day memories though new eyes. I wanted to be some small part in a couples big day. I want to create beautiful photos for so if one day they ever feel down, they can look at there photos and be taken back to a day that they felt amazing and they can instantly feel better. That's why I started Lotus and strive to be Long Island best wedding photographer.
