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

Groom Getting Ready Photos | The Carltun Wedding

When you add a second wedding photographer to your photography package we are now able to photograph the grooms getting ready photos. 

I usually ask the best man to help the groom put on his suit, or fix his bowtie.  These are great candid images to include in your wedding album.

After that, I will take a few portraits of the groom alone before he leaves for the church for his wedding ceremony.

After your detail images are taken, we will then move on to the "getting ready" section of your wedding day. 

These images are always photographed candidly. Images of the mother of the bride zipping up the back of the bride's wedding dress are great moments to include in your wedding album. 

I also ask the maid of honor to help place the bride's earrings or veil.  

The goal of all of these photos is to capture real emotion and to tell our couple's story through our images. I love taking candid wedding photos.

The Carltun Wedding Photographers | Fun Bridal Party Photos

When I photograph your bridal party photos, I always start with a traditional image of the bride with each of her bridesmaids looking at the camera.

I will do the same for the groom and his groomsmen.  After that, I will get a photograph of the bride and groom with their entire bridal party.

Once these are taken, I love to take fun bridal party photos.  Images of the maid of honor and best man laughing with the bride and groom, are always included in our couple's wedding album.
