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

Creative images of your veil, wedding dress, wedding bands, engagement ring, bridal bouquet, wedding invitation, and save-the-date card all tell the story of our couple's wedding day. 

These photographs are often the first to be selected when our newlyweds are selecting images for their wedding album.

Captain Bills Bride | Wedding Photos

As professional wedding photographers, we are trained to photograph certain moments of your ceremony. 

Some of the images we will photograph at your ceremony will be of the first time the groom sees his bride-to-be walking down the aisle, this is called a processional, your ring exchange ceremony, your vows, candle lighting ceremony, sand ceremony, and of course, your first kiss as husband and wife. 

All of these are must-have photos to include in your wedding album.

When we photograph your ceremony, we will use professional-grade cameras, lenses and lights to give you the highest quality photos possible.

Beautiful Church Photos of a Bride and Groom Together

After your ceremony, we usually photograph the receiving line, this is when the couples and their family meet and thank their guests for coming to the ceremony. Often times, we then set up an exit shot.  This is where we line up the bridesmaids on one side of the church steps and the groomsmen on the other side.  The bride and groom often provide bubbles to everyone, and then we have the couple exit the church. 

Once this is done, I usually like to take the couple back into the church to take a few creative images of them together. 

Often times, these images are usually used in our couple's thank you cards.

Fun Bridal Party Photos at Captain Bills

Bridal party photos should be fun! Of course, I have to take some traditional images of the bride with each of her bridesmaids and the groom with each of his groomsmen looking at the camera.  This is a standard image that you should have in your gallery.

But, after that, I want to take many fun bridal party photos. The images of our bride and groom laughing and having a great time with their bridal party are always the photographs that are printed and added to our couple's wedding album and parent albums.

Parent dances are a wedding tradition that I love the photograph.  

When we photograph your parent dances at Captain Bills, we will take many beautiful candid photos of all of the great emotion while taking an unobtrusive approach.  

I will use a photography technique called off-camera flash.  This technique allows us to place the light exactly where we want it, which gives our images a wow factor.  

This is why we give lighting assistants to all of or main photographers.  Light is everything when photographing weddings and if you choose us to photograph your big day I will take beautiful candid images just like this for you and your husband.

Sunset Wedding Photos at Captain Bills

About a month prior to your wedding day, I will ask you and your future husband to come into our studio to put together a timeline. 

When doing so, we will go over every detail of your wedding and put together a timeline with you that gives you all of the photos you have ever dreamed of.  One of the topics we will cover will be if you would like to take some sunset wedding photos.

If you do, we will schedule out time during your reception, no longer than 10 minutes to take the beautiful images.  

These photos are in my opinion a must-have for ever Captain Bills bride.
