We are so glad we chose Lotus as our wedding photographer. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and beautiful photos made it so easy to work with them and they captured such amazing memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We had a wonderful engagement shoot with James, who helped us look natural and have fun throughout, and our happiness shines through in our photos. For our wedding day, we had Vince and James as a team. Vince stuck to me throughout the day and did a great job capturing the candid joy and moments of the day. James took artistic shots and helped coordinate our poses. Both of them played with light, angles and the different areas throughout our venue to create a holistic album of photos and video footage. Overall, the Lotus team was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend them and their talent for any bride!Reena K Facebook
I can’t even put into words how thankful I am to have had Justin and the Lotus Photography team be apart of our special day. From the moment my husband and I met Justin we hit it off. Justin understood our vision, listened and surpassed our expectations. He and his team were professional, timely and always a phone call away. Their creativity and ability to capture some of our most treasured memories was flawless. I can’t express my gratitude enough. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to capture their beautiful moments with a professional team. -Jenna & Mike B.Jenna B The Knot
Lotus is the most amazing photographers and talent videographers we have ever met. Justin and his crew are amazing. Photos are usually a bit exhausting but we might have to say we had just as much if not more fun with these guys than our guest! They made our rainy wedding day the brightest and most beautiful journey we could ask for. If you are wise book them! We hope to make more memories and explore new life steps just so that we can hire them and see them again! We love love love them. Five stars is not enoughDominique Cecilia Facebook
What I love about doing engagement shoots at Jones Beach is the ability to take romantic images here.
We have a special location that we use that basically gives you a private beach to use as your backdrop.
Which means there will be way less people here than if you went to any random field.
We can take beautiful sunset photos at Jones Beach.
This is one of our favorite locations to use to take romantic sunset photos of our newlyweds.
Jones beach is not known for greenery and flowers, but there are certain sections of it that do in fact have beautiful greenery and flowers to use during your engagement photos.
Another cool feature of Jones Beach is its piers. I use this location all the time when I want to give our couples a different look for their engagement photos.
When we photograph your engagement shoot, our goal is to take pretty photos of you, of course, however, we would also like to show your real relationships.
We pride ourselves in getting our couples to relax and enjoy the process of being photographed by a professional photographer.
Jones Beach gives us the ability to do just that.
No, Jones Beach does not require a permit to do your engagement shoot here.
Yes, you can bring your pets with you when you do an engagement shoot at Jones Beach.
But - See our FAQ page regarding bringing pets with you on your engagement shoot.
You can use Jones Beach pretty much anytime you like. However I would suggest doing your engagement shoot about an hour before sunset.
This way, we can get great light and airy daytime pictures as well as beautiful sunset images.
