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

Raphael Vineyard Wedding Gallery

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.

Beautiful Bridal Portrait | Raphael Vineyard Wedding

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.

Bride and Groom First Look at Raphael Vineyard

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.

Candid Bridal Party Photos | Raphael Vineyard Gallery

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.

Emotional Wedding Photos | Raphael Vineyard Gallery

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.
