Our team of professional Long Island wedding photographers has photographed many weddings at East Winds Long Island over the years.
When looking for the right wedding photographer to document the biggest day of your life, you want to make sure that they know everything there is to know about your venue and where to take the best possible wedding photos on your big day.
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
When I photograph a wedding, in the back of my mind, before I take any photograph, I am thinking about what is the best way to tell our couples story.
At the end of the day, that is what we are, visual storytellers.
Detail photos like this, of your engagement ring, and wedding bands are in my opinion, must-have wedding photos.
When you are selecting an image for your album, photos like this set the stage for what is to come later in your album.
If you are looking for a talented wedding photographer, I would love for you to reach out to us.
Our team is fun, professional, and passionate about what we do.
Candid wedding photos of the mother of the bride helping her daughter zip up the back of her wedding dress, or fix her veil are beautiful photos to take on your wedding day.
Candid pictures are the heart and soul of your wedding album. When we photograph your wedding at East Winds, we will take photos just like this for you on your wedding day.
When you add a second photographer to your photography package, we can now take getting ready photos of the groom getting ready.
I love to have the best man helping the groom with his tux or tie.
When we photograph the groom's getting ready photos, we will take many candid photos. In addition to that, we will also take some posed portraits of him, just looking cool.
That is what guys want anyway. They don't want pretty photos of themselves. They want cool, creative photos, of them and a bunch of candid shots of him and his groomsmen hanging out.
What is the first look? A first look is when the bride and groom see each other for the first time, prior to their ceremony. The reason to do this is to ensure all of your formal family portraits, fun bridal party photos, and romantic images of the bride and groom alone are completed before your ceremony.
Then after your ceremony, you and your friends and family can enjoy your cocktail hour while we take candid images for the rest of the wedding.
I love first looks because of all the emotion that comes with it. We set up your first look so it is just you and your future husband. You walk up to him, tap him on the shoulder he turns around and sees you for the first time in your wedding dress, with your bridal makeup on, your bridal bouquet in hand and the emotions in these photos are second to none.
East Winds Long Island has beautiful grounds that are the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. When we photograph your bridal party photos, we always start with a few traditional images. Some of these included the groom with each of her groomsmen as well as the bride individually with each of her bridesmaids. Then after that, we like to have fun. Getting your bridal party to laugh and have a great time makes for the best bridal party photos.
The images of you and your bridal party having fun are always the images that make it into either the thank you card, wedding album, or parent albums.
When you look at your gallery of images after your wedding day. I want you to see a mix of photography styles, creative images of your details, fun bridal party photos, and traditional family portraits.
But the truth is, the thing I want you to see more than anything is the love you felt on that day. With your best friends, your family, and the man of your dreams.
The Carousel is a really cool spot to use to take some fun photos on your wedding day at East Winds.
That little town has a lot of charm and some interesting backgrounds for your wedding photos.
I always get dizzy while photographing our couples and their bridal party on the carousel but it is totally worth it when I can capture pure joy like this.
Your wedding ceremony is going to have so many great moments that we will photograph on your big day. The first time the groom sees his bride-to-be walking down the aisle, your vows, ring exchange ceremony, and of course your first kiss as husband and wife. These are all fantastic wedding photos to take on your big day and beautiful moments to include in your wedding album.
When you add a second photographer, while the main photographer is capturing all of the above mentioned moments, the second photographer is taking photos like the one you see here.
This emotional image of the maid of honor watching her best friend marry the man of her dreams is why I became a Long Island wedding photographer.
While you are enjoying your cocktail hour, we will be hard at work photographing all of the details in your reception room. Some of the images we will take are of your wedding cake, couple's dais, card box, centerpieces, and seating chart.
These detail photos are must-have images to include in your wedding album to tell the complete story of your wedding day.
When we photograph your first dance as East Winds, we will take an unobtrusive approach to photograph this special moment.
We will be as far away from you as possible, taking candid images of you and husband dancing, and smiling and singing.
I use a photography technique called off-camera flash that allows us to place the light where we want it, which gives your images a depth and beauty that you and your friends and family will enjoy for years to come.
The best man and maid of honor speech is a beautiful tradition. I love to photograph the great candid moments that happen when the best man cracks a joke.
Candid photos like this are precious. These are the moments that can't be scripted, you just have to be ready for them to happen. Which makes photographing a candid moment like this so special.
During your reception at East Winds, there will be many great moments we will photograph for you.
The bride and grooms grand entrance into the ballroom, your first dance as husband and wife, your best man and maid of honor speeches, and your cake cutting ceremony.
But one moment stands out to our couples more than others: your parent dances.
Images of the bride dancing with her father or the groom dancing with his mother are heartwarming moments that we will take the utmost care in photographing on your wedding day.
East Winds Long Island has everything a bride to be or groom to be could ask for in a catering hall to host their wedding reception.
Great food, beautiful rooms, fantastic bridal suite and many great locations to use to take creative and candid wedding photos on your big day.
Our team of professional wedding photographers know all of the best locations to use to photograph your wedding here.
About a month before your wedding at East Winds Long Island, we will set up an appointment to go over all of the details of your wedding day and help you put together a timeline that is going to give you the best photos and experience possible.
One of the topics we will go over is if you would like to take some creative night time wedding photos.
If you do, we usually take the couple out for about 10 minutes during dinner. Usually, this is a welcome break because you have been dancing the night away and could use it from fresh air.
I love to use a variety of photography styles at every wedding I photograph. I used a more creative lighting technique in this image to give depth and dimension to this creative night-time wedding photo at East Winds Long Island.
The Estate at East Winds is a beautiful location to host your reception.
What I like about the Estate is that it is a one-wedding at-a-time location with its own private entrance, parking lot, outdoor ceremony space, and reception room.
You never see another bride, it is almost a stand-alone catering hall inside the East Winds complex.
The Inn at East Winds is another beautiful location to host your wedding reception.
The Inn at East Winds has a variety of spaces for all size wedding receptions.
The Veranda Room, Southampton Room, Northampton Room, and Grand Ballroom are all fantastic locations to host your wedding reception.
They also offer both indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces.
The Cottage at East Winds is a beautiful location to host your wedding reception at East Winds.
The Victorian gazebo or the waterfall are beautiful locations to photograph your fun bridal party photos or traditional family portraits.
The wood bridge and garden pathways are great locations to use to take romantic wedding photos on your big day.
If you are getting married at East Winds and are looking for a nearby park to take some beautiful wedding photos I would highly suggest Islip Grange Park.
