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

First Look with the Father of the Bride

Your ceremony is going to be full of great moments such as the first time the groom sees his bride-to-be walking down the aisle, your vows, ring exchange ceremony, and your first kiss as husband and wife.

Fun Bridal Party Photos

When I photograph your bridal party photos, I usually take a traditional image of the groom with each of his groomsmen individually, the bride with each of her bridesmaids individually, as well as a group shot of the entire bridal party together.  These are standard wedding photos you have to take. 

But after the traditional pictures are completed, I then like to have fun and get the bridal party to be silly, laugh, and enjoy being photographed.  

Our team of professional wedding photographers is fun and outgoing, not only will we take beautiful wedding photos on your big day at Sand Castle, but you and your bridal party will have a great time doing it.

Our team of professional wedding photographers have photographed many weddings at this beautiful catering hall and know all of the great locations to use to take creative and candid wedding photos on your big day. 

This image was taken using Sand Castle's large gazebo as the background.  I love the way the bride's veil is flowing in the wind, as she stands in her wedding dress holding her bridal bouquet.  

This image not only shows off the beautiful grounds at Sand Castle but the bride as well.

Reception Details at Sand Castle Wedding

While you enjoy Sand Castle's cocktail hour, we will be hard at work photographing all of the details in your grand ballroom. 

Some of the images we will take are of your wedding cake, couple's dais, table settings, floral arrangements, card box, seating chart, and a wide-angle photo of the entire ballroom.

These images are often added to wedding albums to help tell our newlywed's story.  After this, we move on to the room shot of the bride and groom.

Bride and Groom at Sand Castle

    The Sand Castles grand ballroom can host up to 350 guests on your wedding day.

    During your reception, we take the utmost care in photographing your grand entrance, first dance, parent dances, and all of the other great moments that will happen during your wedding reception at The Sand Castle.

    Our team of professional Long Island wedding photographers will use a variety of photography techniques to photograph all of your reception formalities.  One of these photography techniques is called off-camera flash.  When we use off-camera flash, it allows us to place the light where we would like, and not have it all over the place.  Which then gives our photos a creative flair.
