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!

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.

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 enough

Bourne Mansion Wedding Gallery - Brides Detail Photos

Detail photos such as your engagement ring, wedding bands, wedding dress, bridal bouquet, veil, and wedding invitation are so important for your wedding album.  When we photograph your wedding we are always thinking about what is the best way to tell the story of our couple's wedding day.  These small details help tell the big story of our bride's and the groom's big day.

Robe Shot with the Bride and her Bridesmaids

The robe shot has become a wedding photography staple for most Long Island brides.  These fun bridal party photos are silly and one of my favorite parts of any wedding day.  When we photograph your big day, we will take a variety of photography styles.  Creative, candid, traditional, and artistic wedding images should be taken at every wedding.  When it comes to pictures of you and your bridesmaids, we want to have fun and show your true relationships with your bridesmaids.

Bourne Mansion Wedding Photos - Bride Getting Ready

Timeless wedding photos are what Lotus Wedding Photography is most known for.  Our goal is for you to look at your wedding gallery 30 years from now with your children and grandchildren and still love each and every one of your images.  When we photograph your getting ready photos, we will take creative and candid images like the one you see here. 

Bourne Mansion-5

Candid Getting Ready Photos with the Mother of the Bride

Candid wedding photos like this are why we became Long Island Wedding Photographers.  In this photo here you see the mother of the bride giving her daughter a warm hug before she goes off and marries the man of her dreams.  This image was set up, but not posed.  We did not tell her to do this, she was zipping up the back of the bride's wedding dress and she just hugged her.  Their expression mixed with fantastic lighting is why I love this candid getting ready photo so much.  When we photograph your wedding at Bourne Mansion we will take photos just like this for you. 

Bourne Mansion-19

First Look with the Father of The Bride

This emotional photo says so much to me.  As the father of a baby girl, I would love it if her wedding photographer took a photo of us together like this.  We did a first look with the father of the bride just before leaving for the ceremony.  When the bride's father saw her for the first time with her bridal makeup on, wedding dress on, bridal bouquet in hand, it was too much emotion for him to hold back.  She walked down the stairs of the home where she grew up in, they hugged and this was the candid image I was able to capture for them. 

Bourne Mansion-18

Beautiful Bridal Portraits

What is a bridal portrait?  After we have completed all of your detail photos and getting ready photos it is now time to take some beautiful photos of the bride alone. 

I love so much about this image, from the light that is hitting the brides face, to the warm/cold tones on either side of the image.  I love to take photos that not only show off the bride's wedding dress, veil, bridal makeup and hair but also that shows us how beautiful she is on the inside.  When we photograph your wedding at Bourne Mansion, I would love to take photos just like this for you. 

Bourne Mansion-9

Candid Ceremony Wedding Photographs

During your ceremony, there is nothing more powerful than a great candid photograph.  When I photograph a couple's wedding ceremony, I will take the utmost care in photographing the first time the groom sees his bride-to-be walking down the aisle, the bride's expression as the father of the bride gives her away, your vows, ring exchange ceremony and of course, your first kiss as husband and wife.  A great candid image is the heart and soul of any wedding album.

Bride & Groom Photos in Church after their ceremony

After you have your first kiss and you do your receiving line and exit shot, we will then take you and your husband back into the church to take some creative wedding photos.  In this photo, I wanted to show off the cross of the church as well as the bride's and groom's love for each other.

I love the bride's expression as her husband gently kisses her forehead.

Creative Wedding Photos at Bourne Mansion

As much as we love to take candid wedding photos, we believe that a well-rounded wedding gallery should have a nice mix of creative and candid images. This image was taken in front of Bourne Mansion.  I wanted to show off not only the bride's beautiful wedding dress and the groom's tux but the vast grounds that Bourne Mansion provides.  Creative photos like this are why most of us became Long Island Wedding Photographers.

Your parent dances are must-have wedding photos to include in your wedding album.  When we photograph your parent dances at Bourne Mansion we will take a very candid approach.  We don't want you to notice that we are there. My goal is for you to look at your wedding gallery and say wow, these are beautiful images and they were not in the way at all.  When we take an unobtrusive approach, we are able to take images like the one you see here.  We are able to capture the real emotions that happen. The Bourne Mansion has a huge dance floor and a ton of space that allows us to take images just like this for you and your family.

  • Outdoor Ceremony Space

    The outdoor ceremony space at Bourne Mansion is beautiful. 

    When we are photographing the bride walking down the aisle the background is the mansion itself.

    The beautiful white columns provide a great non-distracting backdrop while the leading lines lead your eye to the bride and the father of the bride as they walk down the aisle hand in hand.

    When we are photographing the bride's and groom's vows, ring exchange ceremony, or first kiss as husband and wife, the background is a large open area full of greenery and blue skies.

  • The Stairs

    Some couples know about this location while many do not.  This is a really cool feature of Bourne Mansion that we love to use when photographing weddings here.

    I love to take creative photos as well as romantic images of our couples alone together here.

    This is also a really fun location to use for photos of your big bridal party photos.  I love to use a photography technique called stacking.  

    When you stack a bridal party you can have some of the groomsmen on different levels of the stairs, you can do this with the bridesmaids too.  It makes for cool photos of your bridal party together.

    The inside of Bourne Mansion is just as nice as the outside for wedding photos.  I have used the inside of Bourne Mansion to photograph creative photos of the couple together as well as photos of the bride and each of her bridesmaids, the groom and each of his groomsmen and of course family photos too.
