As a professional Long Island wedding photographer, we have photographed many weddings at Raphael Vineyard and know all of the locations to use to take the best pictures possible.
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 we photograph your wedding at Raphael Vineyard we will start photographing the bride's details. Images of your engagement ring, wedding bands, veil, wedding dress, and bridal bouquet are beautiful images to include in your wedding gallery.
These images are always the first photos selected when our couples are picking pictures for their wedding album.
After your detail photos are taken, we then move on to the getting ready photos, which are great images to take on your wedding day.
I usually ask the mother of the bride or the maid of honor to help the bride zip up the back of the bride's wedding dress or place in the veil.
After that, I love to take beautiful images of the bride alone before the first look.
A first look is also known as a first reveal. A first look is when the bride and groom see each other prior to their ceremony.
Some couples choose to do this so they can take all of their fun bridal party photos, formal family pictures, and romantic images of the bride and groom before their ceremony.
This way, everyone can get to enjoy the cocktail hour.
Taking romantic wedding photos of our couples is one of my favorite parts of being Long Island wedding photographers.
The goal is to take images that are romantic while also being candid. This way you are not overly posed, but still look like you.
Raphael Vineyard has many great locations to use to take romantic wedding photos on your wedding day.
From their vineyards to the main ballroom, their wine cellar our team of professional Long Island wedding photographers know all of the best locations to use at Raphael Vineyard to take the best wedding photos you have ever seen.
When I photograph your bridal party photos, I will take a variety of photos. I always start with a traditional photo of the bride with each of her bridesmaids and the groom with each of his groomsmen looking at the camera.
Then after that, I like to take fun and silly photos of the entire bridal party together. When you are laughing with your maid of honor or the groom is joking and laughing with this best man, it makes for great candid photos you might want to include in your wedding album.
Your ceremony is going to be full of beautiful moments that I would like to photograph for you.
Raphael Vineyard has a beautiful location to use for your outdoor ceremony. Right next to the venue, you have 360-degree views of their beautiful grounds.
Here are some photos that we usually take during ceremonies at Raphael Vineyard.
While you and your guests are enjoying your cocktail hour, we will be in your main ballroom photographing all of the details in your reception space.
Some of the photos I usually photograph are of your wedding cake, centerpieces, couples dais, card box, guests seating chart, and a wide-angle photo of the entire main ballroom.
All of these images tell the story of our couple's wedding day. These pictures are always chosen in the bride's and the groom's main wedding album.
When we photograph your wedding reception we will take many candid pictures. Some of the moments I will photograph during your reception at Raphael Vineyard will be of:
Wedding photos should be pretty, fun, creative, and candid. But about all else, your wedding photos should move you.
No wedding photo is more emotional than your parent dances.
When I photograph your parent dances I will use the best pro-grade cameras, lights, and lenses to take the best images possible.
Images of the groom and his mother or the bride and the father of the bride are wedding staples that deserve the utmost care when photographing.
The Renaissance Room at Raphael Vineyard can accommodate up to 300 guests on your wedding day.
It has polished cherry mahogany, textured linens with accents of silver, crystal and china.
One of the great features of the Renaissance rooms is that it is a great location to use if the weather is less than ideal.
I have photographed everything from:
All using the Renaissance Room. And the photos were beautiful.
Most couples choose to host their wedding at Raphael Vineyards because of the vineyards themselves.
This is one of the reasons that makes this venue so great. They have many beautiful locations to use on your wedding day to take creative and candid images.
The vineyards are no exception. If you are looking for a great location for portraits of the bride and groom together, fun bridal party photos or family photos, the vineyards are our goto location for all of these images.
The wine cellar is a really cool location to use to take some creative photos of the bride and groom together.
The 2nd floor of Raphael Vineyard is another fantastic location to use to take some creative wedding photos on your big day.
