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
Our goal when photographing a wedding is to be able to tell the story of our couple's wedding day through our photographs. Detail photos of your wedding dress, engagement ring, wedding bands, bridal bouquet, garter, veil, and wedding invitation all help us tell the story of our couple's wedding day. These are fantastic images to include in your wedding album or parent albums.
The newly renovated bridal suite is a great location to use for your getting ready photos. When we photograph your getting-ready section of the day, I love to have the mother of the bride help her zip up the back of her wedding dress, or the maid of honor set the veil. These candid images not only show off the bride's gown, but they tell the story of our newlyweds big day in a candid photography style.
Overlooking The Great South Bay on 1200 ft of outdoor shoreline the outdoor ceremony space at The Riviera is the perfect place to say your "I do's."
When we photograph your ceremony, our goal is to act as photojournalists. Taking many candid images of all of the emotion that comes with a wedding ceremony.
Some of our favorite images to take are of the first time the groom sees his bride-to-be walking down the aisle, your vows, ring exchange, candle lighting ceremony, and of course your first kiss as husband and wife.
If you choose to add a second photographer they can take many candid images of your guests as they watch you marry the man of your dreams.
The perfect mix of barn style venue and modern luxury, the main ballroom at the Riviera is beautiful.
Brick walls, high wood ceilings, string lights, over 300ft of windows facing The Great South Bay, the main ballroom has everything a bride to be could ask for to host your wedding reception.
During your wedding reception, we will take the utmost care in documenting special moments such as the bridal parties' grand entrance, the bride's and groom's grand entrance, your first dance, parent dances, best man and maid of honor speeches and parent dances.
These are must-have wedding photos that you will want to include in your wedding album to tell the story of your big day.
If you choose to have your ceremony indoors, the Riviera Waterfront Mansion has a beautiful location for you.
They turn your grand ballroom into an indoor ceremony space. The backdrop of a two-story stone fireplace and brick walls will give your ceremony a rustic feel that photographs beautifully.
A great feature of having your ceremony indoors at The Riviera is that we can go into your bridal suite which overlooks your entire ceremony so we can get an overhead photo.
Your bridal party is your best friends, we want to show your real relationships with them.
We always start your bridal party photos with traditional images of the bride and each one of her bridesmaids and the groom with each of his groomsmen looking at the camera.
Then we take some fun photos of your entire bridal party having a great time, being silly, laughing and these are the images that most often end up being printed or in your wedding album.
One of the biggest features of The Riviera Waterfront Mansion is their 1200 ft of outdoor shoreline on The Great South Bay.
During your finals appointment in our studio a month prior to your wedding day, we will go over every detail and photo we will take on your big day.
When we photograph a wedding at The Riviera, I always check to see what time the sunset is so we can try to schedule in a few minutes to take some breathtaking images of the sunset on your wedding day.

The staircase goes from the Lobby to the Bridal suite.
I love the large chandelier and iron rails. I use this location for one or two creative photos of the bride alone on her wedding day.
A cool feature of the bridal suite is the ability to go outside and use the deck that is connected to it.

Connected to the bridal suite deck the spiral staircase is another great location to use on your wedding day. The green trees provide the perfect backdrop, while your wedding dress flows down the spiral staircase.
