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
The Mansion at Old Westbury Gardens is an iconic building with tons of great features to use in your engagement photos.
There are large stone pillars, vines going up the building, and cool looking stairs.
This is a great location to use for a few engagement photos.
If you go past the mansion and down the stairs, and across the fountain, you will be taken to this cute area.
It is a semi-circle of stone columns.
When we photograph your engagement photos, notice that all of our couples look relaxed and comfortable. Our team of professional photographers is fun and outgoing. We pride ourselves in taking beautiful photos while also getting our couples to relax and enjoy the process.
Most guys have a misconception that taking professional photos has to be superposed and awkward.
That is not the case at all with us.
We want to show you and your fiancé's real relationship with our pictures.
Old Westbury Gardens has many great locations to use to take candid engagement photos.
One of the things I love about doing a couple's engagement shoot at Old Westbury Gardens is just exploring the location.
Each engagement shoot is different because the day is different, the light is different, the time of year is different.
We have to take all of these factors into consideration when doing your shoot.
Even tho, we photograph tons of engagement shoots here every year, no two photoshoots are alike.
This gives us the ability to take creative and unique engagement photos all year round.
One of the things that make Lotus Wedding Photography different than any other photography studio is that we take the time to get to know our couples.
Each couple has a different idea of what style of images they would like for their photos.
The more we know about you, the more we will adjust our style.
This couple loved the light and airy photos, so we photographed a good portation of their engagement shoot in a light and airy style.
Yes, you do need a permit to do your engagement photos at Old Westbury Gardens.
Nope, you can't bring your fur babies to Old Westbury Gardens.
Old Westbury Gardens Hours of operation
11am -6pm Monday Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
10am - 5pm Saturday & Sunday
I would try schedule your engagement shoot the latest hour possible, this way we can get as close to sunset as possible.
The lower the sun is in the day, the better light we will have for your shoot.
