REVIEWS

Wonderful Photographer!  Our wedding photographer Eddie was amazing! He was energetic, personal, paid attention to detail, good director, and patient. I honestly could not ask for a better photographer. He managed time very well. He was a balance of taking classic photos, candid, and whatever youwanted! He really put me and my wedding party at ease! I know all the photographers here have a great reputation and I do highly recommend them! We have not received our photos yet but I know they will turn us in quality work!

Words literally will never be able to describe how wonderful and amazing Lotus Wedding Photography is. I got married recently and had to opportunity to work with Justin, Zelin, Walter, and Amanda. From the time they arrived at our hotel until the time they left our reception they were professional and SO MUCH fun. Justin, Amanda, and Walter were in the bridal suite with me, while Zelin was in with the groomsmen. They arrived promptly and ready to shoot. Not only did the three of them know exactly why they wanted but they made sure to get me the photos I wanted as well. They had everyone in the room cracking up the whole time and eased any nerves that I had. Justin set up our first look in a beautiful location and made sure it was private and intimate between my husband and I. Everything was laid out on a perfect timeline and executed so well. When taking our bridal photos they made sure to set up and shoot the best possible shot every time. By the end of the day, I had people asking for the name of their business and saying how wonderful they were. I have already received a preview photo and it brought tears to my eyes because it was so beautiful. I am confident the rest will be just as great. They bring so much personality to their business and that makes them that much better. I would hire them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to absolutely everyone. Thank you all for capturing our day so beautifully!


Wonderful work!! I couldn't be happier with our photographer. Justin was so easy to work with, he kept us calm and laughing and got incredible shots! We love our pictures and have received countless compliments from our friends and relatives. Justin has got a great eye for detail and has great ideas for creating different kinds of shots. He's also great at capturing candid moments, especially of the dance floor, which can be very difficult. He is so easy to work with, very reasonable and practical. I also enjoyed how honest he was with us about what we needed and didn't try to push any unnecessary extras. We were so thrilled to see how quickly he professed our pictures. It was wonderful to come back from our honey moon and be able to see our pictures (about a month after our wedding). When I had a hard time creating thank you cards from the digital link, Amanda at the office got back to me immediately and helped me out. They were always prompt in getting back to any inquiries we had. Incredible photographer, great team of honest down to earth people. I would recommend them to anyone!


We used Lotus for 2 days over the course of our wedding weekend and they gave us an incredibly reasonable package for the amount of time they spent with us. Vince shot our civil ceremony on Friday, and Zelin (with assistant Anthony) shot our reception on Saturday. All three of them were kind, funny, down-to-earth, and really fun to work with and talk to. Both Vince and Zelin really did a great job of taking advantage of the spaces and environments we had to work with, and took our very vague ideas/suggestions and ran with them - both of them were really thoughtful in staging and lighting every shot. They were careful to check in with us at each stage of the proceedings to make sure they were getting the shots we needed and that they weren’t being intrusive on us or our guests, which was hugely important to us. During the reception especially, I barely noticed that Zelin and Anthony were there and continuing to work their magic. The most telling thing, though, is that even my husband - who will say to anyone who will listen that he doesn’t like having his photo taken and doesn’t care about looking at photos - had a great time working with the guys from Lotus. We received our selection of almost 1000 final shots (most lightly edited and a smaller selection with more artistic edits) almost exactly one month after our wedding. The photos are beautiful! I can’t believe how great they made us look. We’ve already gotten so many compliments from the friends and family we’ve shared them with. I can’t wait to turn them into photo books and shadowboxes and lots of other keepsakes! I also really appreciate that a couple of months after our wedding, they were willing to give us every single shot that they took so that I could try to find additional shots of some of our guests who weren’t represented in the selected set they originally provided. It really helped me to fill in some gaps, and I found a few additional shots here and there that I really like and am glad to have!


My husband and I couldn't be happier with our decision to use Lotus for our wedding photographer! We initially did an engagement shoot and we immediately clicked with Justin. We couldn't believe how comfortable and laid back the shoot was. We honestly had so much fun walking around and finding different places to shoot and our photos did not disappoint. I received so many compliments on them. It was exactly what I wanted AND exactly like the photos on the wall in their studio, which as a bride, you're always a little fearful you wont get. We dealt with his wife Amanda mostly for appointments and formalities and she was always very professional and responsive and willing to help with any questions or concerns I had throughout the planning process and once again, they did not disappoint on our wedding day. Justin shot our wedding as well and it truly felt like a member of our bridal party was shooting the wedding. He definitely got the job done in terms of corralling our bridal party and family members for pictures, however they were all on a first name basis with him by the end of the night because he was such a pleasure to be around. I never anticipated laughing so much with my wedding photographer and soon enough I will find another excuse to book a shoot so we can hang out again :) Justin's work really does speak for itself but I would highly recommend the Lotus team to any bride & groom looking. You will not be disappointed. Thank you again Justin & Amanda for everything!! :)


We got married May 21 ,2016 and I couldn't be more happier that we chose Justin and his crew to shoot our wedding day!! We clicked as soon as we sat down to book our day , Justin's personality is just amazing and so much fun !! Such a great experience we had and couldn't be more happier !!! Him and his staff are AMAZING!!! Thank you Amanda for being there and helping me with my dress and just making sure everything is beautifully set ! Justin and his team went above and beyond and I can't thank you guys enough for capturing our special day and treating us like family ! I can't stop saying how AMAZING they are and we would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!! I can't wait to see the rest of our pictures and video !!!


Lotus is hands down the best wedding photography company on Long Island! They truly make it feel like it is YOUR day, they cater to everything you ask them for, and make the experience worth every penny. Justin, Amanda, and Walter were absolutely awesome the entire night. They all kept it professional yet made you feel like you have been friends forever. They were always cracking jokes, making us smile, and even during the reception always seemed to capture the special moments when you didn't think they were looking. Thanks for everything guys, keep doing what you're doing!


 Gorgeous photography, absolutely stunning. Warm, genuine and professional, Justin and Amanda are truly virtuosos in their craft. Their shots tug on the heartstrings and capture the intricate, emotional and honest beauty of your wedding day. Thank you for truly "getting us" and for giving us memories to cherish for a lifetime.


Lotus Wedding Photography is absolutely amazing....our photographer made us feel so comfortable and she fit right in as if she were family! We appreciate her incredible talent, professionalism, and creativity! Working with Lotus has been such a pleasure! We can't wait to work with them again!


Everyone at Lotus was wonderful and easy to work with, in preparing for both our engagement photos and wedding photos. Zelin and Herman - our photographers - were extremely kind and professional the entire day, from ceremony to reception. We cannot recommend Lotus enough!


Unbelievable work! Justin and his team went above and beyond. I cannot stop looking at how amazing the photos are. Justin is extremely talented and is so great to work with. We were very picky with selecting a photographer, but once we were referred to Lotus and saw the photos, our decision was made. If you are looking for engagement/wedding photos that will capture the true essence of your day, I highly recommended using Lotus!!


     Reviewed On 8/07/2015 Theresa WJustin and Amanda shot our wedding in the beginning of June and I really cannot say enough wonderful things about them and their photography. I was incredibly impressed with their personalities and ability to wrangle my enormous and slightly rambunctious wedding party! The pictures came out absolutely amazing! Neither of us are the most photogenic people and kinda awkward on a good day so the fact that they were able to capture us so well is thoroughly impressive! They are ABSOLUTELY my only recommendation for photographers!


I am the bride, me and my wife Lindsay got married this year and I can't brag enough to people about just how good Justin, Amanda, and Zelin were! I found Lotus Photography on the Knot which was super helpful! First off, I hired Justin and his team only 2-3 months before my wedding because my first photographer kept quoting us at hire prices each month and would not write up a contract for us so after I told her she wouldn't be doing our wedding I was left panicking and worried about our budget and if we could find someone. When I tell you that I searched every photographer on Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk, even in the 5 burrows), I could not and did not find a better, more reasonable priced photographer than Justin with such amazing work! He worked with our budget and for the work he put into our photos we could not have asked for anyone better. We felt so comfortable with our photographers because 1.) they were funny as all hell, not demanding or rude or stuck up like some photographers I've met in the past. They wanted to really get to know us so they set up a meeting with us and we knew from that meeting they were going to be great. The whole time they wanted us to have fun and we felt at ease and natural with them and because of that we got naturally great shots, and 2.) because you would never even have known they were there. The whole time we had a great time laughing and loving and dancing with family and friends and some of the shots they got we kept saying, "when did they get that picture?" Or, "I never even saw them there!" Lotus is the absolute right choice for your wedding guaranteed, you will never be disappointed. I myself am not a show off type of girl that rarely wears makeup or goes crazy with my hair, I'm kind of a plain Jane girl, but when I look at my wedding photos (which I do like every day, lol) I feel like a princess over and over. I have showed tons of people our pictures and they have all said I look flawless and beautiful and amazing and I can't help but feel like on my one day to feel like that, I completely did feel like a princess and still do looking at these photos over and over again. The one thing I wanted out of my wedding besides being with the love of my life forever was amazing photos I could look back on and show my future children and be proud of and always feel the beauty and love from that day and I can honestly say I got that from Lotus. What Justin and his crew gave us, we could never repay or thank enough for. I still get people months after the wedding coming up to me telling me how amazing we both looked and that feeling is priceless. If you don't go with Lotus you are making a huge mistake because you WILL NOT find anyone better, I guarantee you. We loved Justin, Amanda and Zelin and could have not asked for anything else. Thank you so much Justin, Amanda, and Zelin, we love you guys! Thank you for making our day so incredibly special. ❤️


Justin was a pleasure to work with and he worked well with our three dogs. He arrived early and went straight to taking pictures in our back yard. He captured amazing moments, the expressions on our faces and family faces were captured so eloquently, especially during Mass. The pictures with everyone dancing on the dance floor were fun. We received our pictures quickly, about a month. Justin is a great photographer and I would recommend him to others.


Justin was an amazing photographer! He has such a nice way about him and a pleasure to be around, which is really important when he's with you for hours upon hours on the best day of your life. He is creative, professional, fast, and fun. Great ideas for shots and also open to suggestions. I would recommend him to anyone! His pictures are all over my house!


My husband and I had Justin Geisel as our wedding photographer in October 2013 and as well as our photographer for our engagement photos. We were super impressed with the quality and beautiful artistry of all the photos. I could not imagine using any other photographer. We have some of the best wedding and engagement photos that I have ever seen! Justin was very professional, easy-going and understood completely what we wanted in our pictures. He made me and my husband feel so comfortable and at ease. Overall we were highly impressed with Justin as our photographer and highly recommend him to anyone interested in having superb wedding photos. We can't wait to book him for future events! A+ photographer!!


Justin was our photographer for our wedding in April. From the time we met Justin to when he took our last wedding photo, he was always very professional, had great follow up and was willing to answer all of my questions. Justin was open to suggestions and made us feel comfortable. He knew how to handle large wedding parties and how to get get control of the group well. On the day of our wedding, he arrived before our scheduled start time to determine the best locations for our pictures and started promptly at 12:30. After the pictures were completed at the hotel, he left to the venue to await my arrival. When I arrived, he was there ready to snap away. While our ceremony space was being prepared, Justin took my fiance and I to multiple locations for more pictures. The ceremony started promptly at 6:30pm and Justin was never in the way or a distraction for us or our guests. Before he left our wedding reception, he made sure that he took all of our must have photos and asked if there were any other photos that we wanted. The turnaround time for us to receive our photos was less than a month and Justin even sent us some pics while we were still on the honeymoon. The quality of his photos was exceptional and he took many candid shots which was great. Justin was a great photographer to work with and I would recommend him to others.


Justin was our photographer for our wedding back in March, and he did absolutely phenomenal work. To be honest, I'm not exactly comfortable having my photo taken and usually feel pretty awkward in front of a camera, but Justin was able to make me feel completely at ease. He was professional, worked well with all of our other vendors, and was able to coral my ravenous bridesmaids for photos at cocktail hour. He really helped take part in making our day fun and memorable. Because of his incredible talent, our wedding day was captured exactly how it felt. Perfect. Hence, we STILL have not decided on all of the photos for our wedding album. Lol.


Planning a wedding can be a very stressful experience but we knew we were in great hands with Justin as our photographer. When we first Justin, we were very impressed not only with his amazing work but his calming energy. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and answered all our questions. On our wedding day, he was extremely professional and helped calm us down when we were overwhelmed with everything running smoothly. Our pictures came out beautiful and we are so happy that we chose Justin.


We used Justin as our main photographer at our wedding in March of this year and I can't say enough nice things about him or his work. He is such a professional and immediately puts everyone at ease. While wedding days can be stressful for a lot of people Justin had us all laughing, having a great time, and captured the most beautiful moments! He even pitched in like a member of the family when my mother couldn't carry my dress to the car by herself. I would highly recommend his services to any other bride I know and in fact have sent people his way specifically requesting he take their pictures. He delivers outstanding photos and makes the whole process an enjoyable and happy experience for everyone involved.


Caravello Wedding Wonders!

     Reviewed On 12/03/2014 We used Justin for our save the date photography. My wife and I were completely satisfied with his performance. Justin was a not only a great photographer, but great person. He was infinitely helpful and made the experience so easy. His professionalism and personalism drew us back. We specifically requested Justin to photograph our wedding. He showed up at our home to photograph my wife and the girls and had never been there. He instantly had great ideas of what he could do to take the most breath taking photos. This experience was consistent, when he took simply amazing photos at the church and our reception site. Justin overall was just great. As a person, photographer, all interactions were wonderful. He was easy to work with and made a situation that could be difficult or stressful breeze by. We absolutely love our wedding photos!!!


Say Yes to Lotus!

I am the type of person who investigates, researches and closely examines everything I want before investing in it and when I became a bride-to-be I did exactly that. Justin was exactly the photographer i was looking for after looking at what felt was like a million wedding pictures of other couples that I didn't know. His work was traditional yet edgy and that was what I wanted for my wedding day and I got exactly that. Justin and Eddie were both fun and engaged with our bridal party, took the traditional pictures we thought we needed and then let us have fun and create shots and memories that were simply incredible. They fit well in our group which was large, a 19 person bridal party isn't always easy to tame after a few drinks but Justin and Eddie had no problem. They were timely and helpful, and very quick with their work as we received proofs of our pictures within a month of our wedding. Justin was also very easy to contact and always available for any questions or concerns we may have had. Our pictures came out amazing. We also used Lotus for our cinematography. Walter was very nice and we cant wait to see our trailer and video! My husband and I definitely recommend Lotus to all you future brides and grooms.


Hands down the best photographer!

Justin did an awesome job of taking his expertise and producing exactly what our vision was. He did everything right and made us feel comfortable from the engagement shoot through the reception. We made a great choice and have awesome pics. If you are looking for a true artist who won't provide cookie cutter boring photos choose him!!!


There is no other option...

Eric was the consummate professional! His work is artistic, playful, and true to his couples. Both my now husband and I felt so at ease with him on our wedding day. He found shots that captured who we both were and gave us a chance to have fun and truly enjoy every shot. It was 25 degrees out the night of our wedding, but Eric braved the cold out on the water to get the perfect shots. Mission accomplished!!!! Today is only five days later and I have already seen many of the edited photos and they are stunning. He found our best qualities and he highlighted them magnificently. We are so honored to be able to say that we had him shoot our day.


Justin is the most talented and artistic photographer out there. I've seen a lot of pictures from other weddings, engagement shots, etc.. and Justin is by far the best photographer out there! He did our engagement shoot and wedding shoot and every photo he took deserves to be on a magazine, the news and everywhere. :-) he's the best! Highly recommended.


I don’t even know where to begin. This was my absolute favorite vendor. Justin was incredible, not just the day of but before the wedding as well. My pictures are amazing. I had a specific vision for how I wanted my pictures to look and Justin far exceeded that. From the minute Justin came to my hotel room that morning I felt a sense of ease, he arranged everything so the pictures would look perfect and captured candid pics of me and my girls getting ready that I didn’t even realize he had taken. For my wedding I had two photographers and two videographers. They worked so well together, and were so personable you would have thought they were a part of our bridal party. They organized my giant bridal party into taking some creative and awesome shots. Most bridal parties (myself included) get frustrated with taking so many pictures but because of how professional and fun my photography team was everyone said they had such a good time with all of the pictures. I was the bride that had 1000 requests, from crazy bridal party pics, to dysfunctional family pics, to countless pics I found on Pinterest, to visions that I described and they created for me. Justin not only entertained all of my crazy ideas but created them for me. In getting to know me over the past year he knew exactly what I would want without me even having to tell him. As I went through my pictures I kept thinking “wow this is an amazing shot” with almost every picture. As talented as Justin is, he is a total sweetheart. My 94 year old grandma was only coming to the church, not to the reception. So I wanted to take pictures with her at the church. My aunt wasn’t aware of this and she took my grandma home right away after the ceremony so I never got to take any pictures with her. Justin knew that I was upset about this so right after the wedding he went through the thousands of pictures to find one of me hugging my grandma as we were walking back down the aisle after we were married and said “ don’t worry I have a picture of you with her.” In my opinion it is rare to find a vendor that is not only extremely talented and can deliver exactly what you want, but caring and genuine as well. I too was booked with Justin at the other studio he was at and followed him when he left because I knew I needed him to be part of my amazing day. Every one of my friends and family members raved about how amazing my pictures are and I could not possibly be happier. I don’t usually write reviews, but in this case I needed to. I want other brides to be able to utilize such an amazing talent and be able to have as amazing of an experience as I did.


I wish I can give more stars! Justin, Amanda & Johan are AMAZING people. They kept me calm and made me laugh! If your looking for a wedding photographer look no further. I will recommend Lotus to everyone! We cannot thank them enough for making our day extra special and making us feel so comfortable. Justin remembered details of the things I liked and didn't like. Can't wait to see the final pictures! You guys are awesome, keep doing your thing! - Ashley & Anthony


I was not at all particular about other vendors, but I contacted over 20 photographers and was hell bent on finding the perfect wedding photographer. I saw my friend’s sprinkling of wedding photos on her Facebook and saw something different in Justin’s photography. Every other photographer seemed so similar, but Justin’s pictures played with light and shadow, had a playful quality in bridal party pictures, and was absolutely gorgeous and simultaneously traditional & modern with pictures of the bride/groom. Once I talked to my friend, she let me login to see the “full” array of photos from her wedding day online (about 2,000 pics). I was amazed, so naturally I figured Lotus must be out of my budget. However, I was elated to find out they are very reasonably priced! I felt like I hit jackpot! On my wedding day, Justin and his wife and assistant, Amanda (he calls her “love” as he asks her to move here or hold the flash there which all of my bridesmaids and I swooned over), arrived to my mom’s house where my bridesmaids and I were primping. They were funny, easygoing, and took amazing pictures right from the start. Justin is so mellow and humorous, which is perfect disposition to have around on a day that can get a bit hectic. He is always even keeled and never ever feeds into any “rushing around” or nerves that relatives and others stir up. After the mass, we went to Glen Island State Park and took pictures for 1.5 hours in 94 degree heat, and Justin, Amanda, and Z took both traditional and artistic/Pinteresty/funny pictures. They didn’t let the heat bother them, nor did they rush anything because of it. They were kind and accommodating to my mom’s requests as well (she kept asking them to throw my cathedral veil in the air not knowing they already did that 5 times, so they patiently did did it a 6th time). We'll refer them to others because they were asset to the day, and we will have beautiful keepsake photos thanks to them. Thank you!



Justin, Amanda, and Z were our photographers. I can't really come up with the right words to describe just how incredible they were. Z came to the hotel and took pictures while we men were getting ready. He was funny, personable, and just a great guy all around. He was professional, and I could tell he knew what he was doing and just tried my best to help him out. He fit right in with the guys; we're a group that likes to laugh and so does he. Justin and Amanda were just as spectacular. Professional. Funny. LOVING TOO. Justin and Amanda are married to each other and their love for each other was beautiful and warming. These guys were everything I could have hoped for and more for my beautiful new wife. She loves pictures-- they were the most important part of the wedding for her, and she got the very best. Thank you guys!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.


We used Lotus Wedding Photography and videography for our July 2016 wedding, and we're very pleased with the overall experience of working with the, and the final results. For our engagement photos, we met one of our photographers, Andre, who was very creative and friendly- the photos turned out great! For our wedding day photography, Vince and Andre were the photographers. Ming was our videographer for the day as well. They all worked very hard to capture the day beautifully, they were so creative and talented, full of great ideas and made all feel comfortable. One of the reasons we also decided on Lotus was that they don't pressure you into buying albums, which we liked having that option. Overall, the photos turned out beautifully and we are so happy with them. We highly recommended this vendor.


It is hard to describe just how perfect Lotus was for our wedding photography needs. Everyone we dealt with leading up to our wedding and the day of was absolutely amazing. The quality of the photographs is truly breathtaking, and validated that we made the right choice. Justin and his team made us extremely comfortable from day one, but most importantly during our wedding day. Our pictures are even more beautiful than we expected them to be and we could not possibly rate Lotus anything below five stars.


My husband and I were looking for a photo/video company that had amazing quality at the right price. Well lotus was it!! We got a free engagement shoot for booking our wedding with them. We got to meet our photographer and see his work by doing so before the wedding. The pictures just from that were amazing and they didn't even have to be touched up that's how perfect they were. The day of the wedding the staff were so sweet and worked so well with our timeline. They came to the hotel we were getting ready at, then church, then beach for pictures and then the venue. They were helpful not only with pictures but by making sure I ( the bride) was taken care of from holding my stuff to making sure my dress wasn't dragging anywhere it shouldn't be. They made the day absolutely amazing and stress free. We also had our two year old son with us that I wanted in a lot of pictures and they were so good with him that it made me an even happier bride. I cannot wait to get the pictures back because I know they are going to be absolute stunning. I know we made the right choice choosing lotus to be able to look back at our special day years from now and relive it all over again through amazing pictures and video. Thank you lotus!! My sister in law is getting married as well and she is using lotus too just from seeing how nice our engagement pictures came out. :)


Lotus Wedding Photography is the best!! Justin and Amanda are amazing and so supportive. From the moment we booked them they were so helpful, and very flexible in creating the package that was right for us. We first did an engagement shoot in Central Park and they were so both so friendly and funny. They helped us loosen up and prepare for the big day and our pictures came out gorgeous! 
Once our wedding day arrived, everything was right on point and on time! They guided us through the beautiful chaos of the day:) Everything felt so natural and they listened to everything that we wanted. They were so gracious and in a way it almost felt as if they weren't there because THAT'S how good they are. 
Everyone that has seen our pictures and video from our wedding is completely stunned and say that they did a remarkable job! Everything was absolutely perfect and the Lotus team captured every beautiful and precious moment! It was such a pleasure working with them and we would recommend them to anyone.
PS: we also picked up our wedding album this week and it's stunning with exceptional quality.
Justin and Amanda thank you so much for everything!!!

Photos were one of the most important things to me when planning my wedding. I will never forget spending 14 hours looking at photographer's websites and thinking they all looked the same. Then I found Lotus and their work just stood apart.! I am so happy to have chosen them to capture my big day. Justin, Amanda, and Walter are reliable, professional and talented. Plus they are like adding a couple extra really FUN members to your bridal party. They had us laughing from the moment they arrived. I get so many compliments on my photos and video and will treasure them for years to come!


Lotus Wedding Photography is absolutely amazing....our photographer made us feel so comfortable and she fit right in as if she were family! We appreciate her incredible talent, professionalism, and creativity! Working with Lotus has been such a pleasure! We can't wait to work with them again!



Simply put....awesome. My husband and I are beyond thrilled with our experience with Justin and the Lotus team. We knew right away that Justin was going to be the perfect person to photograph us for our engagement, wedding and so many more events. For our engagement shoot, I had a vision and an idea to do a sunrise, yes sunrise, not sunset shoot. He was prompt, and ready to go with his enthusiastic and bright personality, even at 6AM!!! We were beyond thrilled with the results!!!
Throughout our wedding planning for the next few years, he was there for everything, any question, any concern, he replied quickly and took the time to help us in any way. 
He is such a talented photographer and an all around amazing person inside and out, which is SO important and hard to find!!! He applied his incredible skills and artistic talent but also listened to what we wanted in our vision. I envisioned an elegant rustic look to all of our photos and he nailed it on the head. Our wedding was during the day so needless to say, time was of the essence. I was so calm and at ease knowing Justin, his lovely wife and team were there. He made the day go SO smoothly and captured EVERYTHING and beyond what I could imagine. I planned on sharing my Pintrest ideas with him but never got a chance to....just from speaking with him, he ended up catching SO many of the shots I wanted and so many surprise shots that were absolutely breathtaking!! My husband and I are completely speechless. We are so honored to say Lotus was (and still will be in the future for other events!) our photographer. Everybody that sees our photos is amazed and in awe. "This looks like it should be in a magazine!!" and so many more comments that made my wedding photos feel so special! 
We love you all and cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us!!!
We are so thrilled with them that hopefully next year we plan on doing a fun anniversary re-shoot!!! Highly recommend Lotus Wedding Photography!!!!


Justin and Amanda were a pleasure to deal with when booking appointments and we really loved our photographer, Andre. Andre was extremely professional, early to both our engagement shoot and the wedding. We were both very nervous with taking pictures for the first time and he made us feel at ease, making us laugh and making us feel natural. By the time our wedding came, we were super comfortable with him. Andre went above and beyond that day, running around for us, going out of his way to grab our flowers that were left in another area, etc. He was everywhere. We love our pictures and are so happy with the finished product!!



The photographs of our wedding are beautiful, creative and amazing great. But what my husband and i also loved besides our photos is that Justin And Amanda were wonderful, patient, professional, punctual, creative and made us less nervous. I would recommend them to everyone and anyone. THEY ARE THE BEST!!!



Unbelievable work! Justin and his team went above and beyond. I cannot stop looking at how amazing the photos are. Justin is extremely talented and is so great to work with. We were very picky with selecting a photographer, but once we were referred to Lotus and saw the photos, our decision was made. If you are looking for engagement/wedding photos that will capture the true essence of your day, I highly recommended using Lotus Wedding Photography!!



Justin and his crew were amazing and we could have not have asked for a better photography team. They were priced unbelievably well for the quality of work, which is better than anyone you will come across. They were so down to earth and made us laugh and feel comfortable. We recommend them to everyone!




There are not enough words to describe the service and professionalism that we received from Lotus, in particularly Eric, our November wedding. From the minute he arrived, I immediately felt at ease. He not only knows and understands the business, he can also read a bride. He knew I was ready to have a good time, and with my groom still hours away, he was going to be the guy that was going to help me have fun. We laughed together all day and when my husband finally joined us, we had an absolute blast. He just allowed us to be ourselves and he captured every moment of who we are as individuals. In the amazing pictures I have seen so far, you can see that Eric has two goals: He wants to create high class shots while staying true to the couple. His mission was accomplished and we are sooooo GRATEFUL that we had the chance to work with him. AND OUR PICTURES ARE BEYONNNNNND STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I am the type of person who investigates, researches and closely examines everything I want before investing in it and when I became a bride-to-be I did exactly that. Justin was exactly the photographer i was looking for after looking at what felt was like a million wedding pictures of other couples that I didn't know. His work was traditional yet edgy and that was what I wanted for my wedding day and I got exactly that. Justin and Eddie were both fun and engaged with our bridal party, took the traditional pictures we thought we needed and then let us have fun and create shots and memories that were simply incredible. They fit well in our group which was large, a 19 person bridal party isn't always easy to tame after a few drinks but Justin and Eddie had no problem. They were timely and helpful, and very quick with their work as we received proofs of our pictures within a month of our wedding. Justin was also very easy to contact and always available for any questions or concerns we may have had. Our pictures came out amazing. We also used Lotus for our cinematography. Walter was very nice and we cant wait to see our trailer and video! My husband and I definitely recommend Lotus to all you future brides and grooms.


Justin is the most talented and artistic photographer out there. I've seen a lot of pictures from other weddings, engagement shots, etc.. and Justin is by far the best photographer out there! He did our engagement shoot and wedding shoot and every photo he took deserves to be on a magazine, the news and everywhere. :-) he's the best! Highly recommended.


Definitely recommend Justin for any future bride!!! 
My fiancé and I had our engagement shoot and we are very pleased!! Justin went above and beyond our expectations. We wanted to have our engagement photos taken at a private farm I horseback ride at (and also the place my fiance proposed last year!)...in order to make sure we had free range and no one was around I asked Justin if we could do a sunrise....yes sunRISE engagement shoot! He responded no problem without any hesitation! 
Well...with a very late wedding from the previous night (and out of state!) and a very very early start (almost 7am!) Justin made our engagement shoot so much fun!! My fiancé and I felt SO comfortable and we all had a blast working with him! He made us laugh and got amazing shots. Our photos came BEAUTIFUL! We envisioned a rustic vintage style and Justin completely went with our vision and tailored to exactly what we wanted!! His flexibility and professionalism is outstanding. We highly recommend Justin!!



Eric is absolutely wonderful. He made the entire experience from the engagement shoot all the way through the wedding so much fun! My husband and I had never been professionally photographed before, but Eric made us so comfortable! I would recommend Lotus Wedding Photography to any bride!



I cannot say enough wonderful things about Lotus Wedding Photography. We contracted them for our wedding. Justin was the photographer for our special day. He was warm, friendly and very professional; he made everyone feel very comfortable. He had great ideas and unique concepts for the ceremony shots. He combined beautifully artistic backdrops for stunning shots as well as capturing candid shots that brought our wedding moments to life.

Hiring a photographer for your wedding is such an important decision because they are capturing moments that you will cherish forever. We couldn’t have made a better decision when selecting our photographer/videographerOur photos and album came out breath-taking! Thank you Justin!


Just had an engagement shoot with Lotus. Justin was our photographer and I have to say that we were more than please with the outcome. He was very patience and easy going which made it easy for us to take instruction from him. Justin had great ideas for us and had a couple for great locations. As people always say, "The proof is in the pudding", Justin did just that. We just finish seeing the proofs and I can't believe that's me and my fiancé in those photos. Justin definitely has an eye for this because he made us look like models. I can't wait for the big day because I have no doubt that Justin is the MAN! Thank you again and again Lotus Photography.



Justin not only managed to keep me calm he took amazing photos for me! He took my vision of what I wanted my engagement and wedding photos to look and made it a reality. Honestly he made taking so many pictures fun and exciting. I could never thank him for the amazing work that he has done for me and my husband!


5.0 

Justin was incredible. I had a vision for how I wanted my pictures to look and he far exceeded that. From the minute Justin came to my hotel room that morning I felt a sense of ease, he arranged everything and captured candid pics of me and my girls getting ready that I didn’t even realize he had taken. I had two photographers and two videographers.They worked so well together, they were professional, fun and were so personable you would have thought they were a part of our bridal party.Even our bridal party had a great time with them.
I was the bride that had 1000 requests, from crazy bridal party pics, to 100 family pics, to countless pics I found on Pinterest. Justin not only entertained all of my crazy ideas but created them for me. In getting to know me over the past year he knew exactly what I would want without me even having to tell him. As I went through my pictures I kept thinking wow this is an amazing shot with almost every picture. As talented as Justin is, he is a total sweetheart. My 94 year old grandma was only coming to the church, not to the reception. So I wanted to take pictures with her at the church. My aunt wasn’t aware of this and she took my grandma home right away after the ceremony. Justin knew that I was upset so right after the wedding he went through thousands of pictures to find one of me hugging her as we walked back down the aisle and said ,don’t worry I have a picture of you with her. In my opinion it is rare to find a vendor that is not only extremely talented and can deliver exactly what you want, but caring and genuine as well. I was booked with Justin at the other studio he was at and followed him when he left because I knew I needed him to be part of my day. Every one of my friends and family members raved about how amazing my pictures are.
I don’t usually write reviews, but in this case I needed to. I want other brides to be able to utilize such an amazing talent and be able to have as amazing of an experience as I did.



Justin was AMAZING! He was caring, considerate, creative and attentive. He was very polite, upbeat and took the time to talk to us ahead of time so he could give us exactly what we were looking for. His pictures are phenomenal and we have had nothing but complements since receiving them. We were completely blown away with the professionalism of Justin, and how comfortable he made us feel. From the start of the day I could feel and certain calm about Justin that put my family and I at ease. I would recommend Justin for any bride looking for amazing engagement and wedding photos!!



Justin was our wedding photographer, and we cannot be more happy that we chose him.
We had booked him under other studio and when he left, we decided to still go with him. He knows what he is doing and guided us on the wedding day.... Thank God! Because we had no clue where to start.
He is Creative, resourceful, dynamic, not enough words to describe the awesome photographer he is.
Can't wait to see the rest of our pics, the ones we saw are beautiful! I'm so happy with his great work so far. :)



The pictures were beautiful, he took every pose that we wanted and others that we never could have imagined. He was so professional and easy to work with.
I would highly recommend Lotus Wedding Photography for any occasion photos



Justin was such a pleasure to work with! Made me feel really comfortable and relaxed. He was able to capture moments that I will treasure for years to come! I definitely recommend him!!



Lotus Photography was the perfect choice for our wedding! Eric and Walt were extremely perceptive and talented in their picture and video taking, we love everything they captured! They were professional, creative and so much fun to work with! They definitely helped the whole wedding party to relax and enjoy the day because we knew we were in good hands! From our first contact before the wedding to the big day, I felt their genuine interest about the wedding, and I am appreciative of the ease of working with them. I recommend Lotus Photography to everybody-you will be glad you chose them!

Justin was our photographer for our wedding in April. From the time we met Justin to when he took our last wedding photo, he was always very professional, had great follow up and was willing to answer all of my questions. Justin was open to suggestions and made us feel comfortable. He knew how to handle large wedding parties and how to get get control of the group well.On the day of our wedding, he arrived before our scheduled start time to determine the best locations for our pictures and started promptly at 12:30. After the pictures were completed at the hotel, he left to the venue to await my arrival. When I arrived, he was there ready to snap away.While our ceremony space was being prepared, Justin took my fiancé and I to multiple locations for more pictures. The ceremony started promptly at 6:30pm and Justin was never in the way or a distraction for us or our guests.Before he left our wedding reception, he made sure that he took all of our must have photos and asked if there were any other photos that we wanted.The turnaround time for us to receive our photos was less than a month and Justin even sent us some pics while we were still on the honeymoon. The quality of his photos was exceptional and he took many candid shots which was great.Justin was a great photographer to work with and I would recommend him to others.



Justin was our photographer for our wedding back in March, and he did absolutely phenomenal work. To be honest, I'm not exactly comfortable having my photo taken and usually feel pretty awkward in front of a camera, but Justin was able to make me feel completely at ease. He was professional, worked well with all of our other vendors, and was able to coral my ravenous bridesmaids for photos at cocktail hour. He really helped take part in making our day fun and memorable. Because of his incredible talent, our wedding day was captured exactly how it felt. Perfect. Hence, we STILL have not decided on all of the photos for our wedding album. Lol.




Planning a wedding can be a very stressful experience but we knew we were in great hands with Justin as our photographer. When we first Justin, we were very impressed not only with his amazing work but his calming energy. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and answered all our questions. On our wedding day, he was extremely professional and helped calm us down when we were overwhelmed with everything running smoothly. Our pictures came out beautiful and we are so happy that we chose Justin.



We cannot say enough good things about Lotus Wedding Photography and Eric (our photographer). My husband and I had a great time doing the pre-wedding shots. During the ceremony and reception, Eric got excellent pictures without being at all obtrusive. Eric was easygoing and upbeat, very pleasant to deal with and very responsive to our requests and questions. Most importantly, we love the pictures he took. I personally feel that it has been many years since I looked this good in a photograph.



We used Justin as our main photographer at our wedding in March of this year and I can't say enough nice things about him or his work. He is such a professional and immediately puts everyone at ease. While wedding days can be stressful for a lot of people Justin had us all laughing, having a great time, and captured the most beautiful moments! He even pitched in like a member of the family when my mother couldn't carry my dress to the car by herself.I would highly recommend his services to any other bride I know and in fact have sent people his way specifically requesting he take their pictures. He delivers outstanding photos and makes the whole process an enjoyable and happy experience for everyone involved.


What a tremendous experience with Lotus on the most amazing day of my life. While this was a day I would remember for the rest of my life, the pictures taken will ensure that the memories will live on forever. If you hire anyone else, then clearly you do not care about your wedding and might as well have an Elementary School photo class taking care of your event. A++++



After meeting Justin, my husband and I knew we wanted HIM! He is so down to earth and really got us. We felt like friends hanging out during our meeting and I knew that would help keep me calm and collected the day of our wedding. Justin made me feel so comfortable & was in excellent spirits when he arrived the morning of. Justin is such a fun guy to be around, I didn’t feel stiff in my photos at all. He was on his game the whole day & I allowed him to take creative liberty & I just knew he would get great shots. I trusted his skills and am soooooooo glad I did. We had plasma screens during the reception & he had been posting photos that were taken, unedited, & posted them and EVERYONE was in awe of how phenomenal they looked. I was beyond impressed myself since 99% of the time, I hate how I look in photos. Justin is a master at his craft and I can honestly say he is the BEST photographer I have ever come across & was worth every single cent. Best. Photos. Ever!



Justin was an amazing photographer! He has such a nice way about him and a pleasure to be around, which is really important when he's with you for hours upon hours on the best day of your life. He is creative, professional, fast, and fun. Great ideas for shots and also open to suggestions. I would recommend him to anyone!



Justin did an amazing job with the photography for our wedding. From the engagement shoot until the last moment we stepped off the dance floor at the reception he was there to capture every moment. His style is unique and has attention to detail. We couldn't have asked for a better person to capture the most important day of our lives.



My husband and I had Justin Geisel as our wedding photographer and as well as our photographer for our engagement photos. We were super impressed with the quality and beautiful artistry of all the photos. I could not imagine using any other photographer. We have some of the best wedding and engagement photos that I have ever seen. Justin was very professional, easy-going and understood completely what we wanted in our pictures. Overall we were highly impressed with Justin as our photographer and highly recommend him to anyone interested in having superb wedding photos. We can't wait to book him for future events!



Justin was a truly fabulous wedding photographer! The first time we met him we said we wouldn't book unless we knew for sure he would be our photographer! Lucky for us, he was available. He got to know us and exactly what our style was. I love every one of our wedding photos and so does everyone else! Thank you Justin for giving us the most perfect photos to remember our perfect day!



My wife and I worked with the photographer Justin. He took our photographs for our save the dates that we used for our wedding. Justin was great! He was full of awesome ideas for creative photos and also took great traditional pictures so we could create a save the date that mixed staged photography with fun accents. Justin was extremely thoughtful and easy to work with, so much so that we requested him specifically to be the main photographer for our wedding month later. Justin came to our home promptly to take photos of my wife and all of the girls. He did a wonderful job and then was phenomenal at both the church and reception site. He knew exactly what to do, making this experience so easy for us. We were extremely impressed with his professionalism and the photos we have from our wedding!!!



We used Lotus for 2 days over the course of our wedding weekend, and they gave us an incredibly reasonable package for the amount of time that they spent with us. Vince shot our civil ceremony on Friday, and Zelin (with assistant Anthony) shot our reception on Saturday. All three of them were kind, funny, down-to-earth, and really fun to work with and talk to. Both Vince and Zelin really did a great job of taking advantage of the spaces and environments we had to work with, and took our very vague ideas/suggestions and ran with them - they were both really thoughtful in staging and lighting every shot. They were careful to check in with us at each stage of the proceedings to make sure they were getting the shots we needed and that they weren’t being intrusive on us or our guests, which was hugely important to us. During the reception especially, I barely noticed that Zelin and Anthony were there and continuing to work their magic. The most telling thing, though, is that even my husband - who will say to anyone who will listen that he doesn’t like having his photo taken and doesn’t care about looking at photos - had a great time working with the guys from Lotus.We received our selection of almost 1000 final shots (most lightly edited and a smaller selection with more artistic edits) almost exactly one month after our wedding, and they are beautiful! I can’t believe how great they made us look. We’ve already gotten so many compliments from the friends and family we’ve shared them with. I can’t wait to turn them into photo books and shadowboxes and lots of other keepsakes! I also really appreciate that a couple of months after our wedding, they were willing to give us every single shot that they took so that I could try to find additional shots of some of our guests who weren’t represented in the selected set they originally provided. It really helped me to fill in some gaps, and I found a few additional shots here and there that I really like and am glad to have them.

Everyone at Lotus was wonderful to work with, in preparing for both our engagement photos and wedding photos. Zelin and Herman - our photographers - were extremely kind and professional the entire day from ceremony to reception. We cannot recommend Lotus enough!
