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

Danford's Hotel & Marina Gallery

When we photograph your wedding some of the first images we will take will be of your wedding dress, engagement ring, wedding bands, bridal bouquet, and wedding invitation. 

Then I will take some bridal portraits before your first reveal. 

What I like about this image is the light on the bride.  This is what I would call a dramatic portrait of the bride on her wedding day. 

You see the light is illuminating her face, and the wedding dress then falls into shadow. 

This photography technique gives depth to your photo.

Bride & Groom First Look at Danford's Hotel & Marina

When I photograph a couple's first look I like to use the dock as the background. 

This provides us a clean background so the focus is on the couple's expression.

These are beautiful candid images to include in your wedding gallery and are always chosen in our couple's wedding album.

Romantic Wedding Photos at Danford's Hotel & Marina

Romantic photos of the bride and groom are why many of us became Long Island Wedding Photographer.  

I would describe this style of image as light and airy. 

My goal is to take a variety of photography styles on your wedding day.  Some light and airy, some dark and dramatic, some posed, and some candid wedding photos. 

This way, when you are selecting images for your wedding album or to print, you have a nice selection of photos to choose from.

Wedding Ceremony at Danford's Hotel & Marina

Your ceremony is going to be full of many beautiful moments that I would love to photograph for you. 

When I am photographing a ceremony at Danford's, I will be as unobtrusive as possible. 

We have all been to weddings where the photographer was in the way or blocked the guests' view.  That will not happen if you book us for your ceremony. 

We will use the telephoto lens so we can zoom in, so we will not get in anyone's way while still getting all the emotion that comes with your ceremony.

Boardwalk Wedding Photos at Danford's

One of my favorite locations to use when I photograph weddings at Danfords is their boardwalk. 

The sky, the water, and the pier are all great elements to include in your images.

I love to have the bride and groom hold hands and just walk up and down the boardwalk, this creates a relaxed atmosphere and allows me to take beautiful candid images for my couples.

Sunset Wedding Photos at Danford's Hotel & Marina

We would love to take romantic sunset photos for you on your wedding day.

About a month prior to your big day, I will have you and your fiancé come into our studio to go over all of the details of your wedding. 

We will help you up together with a timeline that allows us to take all of the images you want.

One of the topics we will go over will be if you would like to take some sunset photos. 

If you do, we will schedule a 5-minute period during your reception to go on the balcony to take these images.
