Our team of professional Long Island wedding photographers photograph weddings at Villa Lombardi's many times a year and know all of the best locations to use to take the best wedding photos 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 I photograph your wedding at Villa Lombardi's the first photos I will take will be of your engagement ring, wedding bands, bridal bouquet, veil, wedding invitation, and save-the-date.
The reason for this is because they tell the story of our couple's wedding day.
I will use high-end professional-grade cameras, lenses, and lights to provide you with the highest quality photos possible.
After I am finished photographing your detail photos I will then start to photograph your "getting ready" images.
Images of the mother of the bride zipping up the back of the bride's wedding dress or the maid of honor pinning in the veil are beautiful images to include in your wedding gallery.
When you look at your gallery of photos years from now, I still want you to feel something when you look at them.
A great wedding photographer will take a variety of photos on your wedding day.
From candid images to traditional photos to romantic wedding pictures, you should have a beautiful mix of photography styles in your gallery.
When we photograph your ceremony, we will take many candid photos of everything that happens. Some of the moments we look to photograph will be of:
These are very important photos to take on your wedding day and almost all of these images are usually chosen for your wedding album and parent albums.
After your ceremony, we usually set up and exit shot where we have the bridesmaids stand on one side of the doorway and the groomsmen stand on the other side. The bride and groom will exit the church to a loud cheer from their guests.
After that, I love to take the bride and groom back inside the church to take a few creative wedding photos.
Villa Lombardi's has many great locations to use to take beautiful wedding photos on your big day.
This photo was taken in the back of the venue. I like how archways frame the bride and groom, while the gazebo provides a non-distracting background.
When looking for a photographer to photograph your wedding day, you have to see the photos they have taken at your venue.
As much as I would love to have all day to take beautiful photos of our couples, the reality is that is not the case.
We have to take beautiful wedding photos quickly, and you only do that by knowing the venue inside and out.
Let's just be honest, no one wants to take boring photos with their bridal party.
When we photograph your bridal party photos, we will take one or two traditional photos of everyone looking at the camera.
But after that, we want you to have fun!
Fun bridal party photos are always chosen for our couples' albums over the traditional look at the camera images.
I love to photograph the bride and her bridesmaids being silly and making funny faces.
And photos of the groom with his groomsmen doing weird things, and just being guys are awesome to take too.
Your family photos could be some of the most important pictures to take on your wedding day.
That being said, we don't want to be there for hours taking family photos.
A month prior to your wedding we will have you and your fiancé come to our studio to go over every aspect of your wedding day.
One of the topics we will go over will be that of your family photos. We will go over all of the groupings that are important to the bride and all of the groupings that are important to the groom.
This way, we can take your family photos quickly, so you and your family can enjoy Villa Lombardi's cocktail hour.
While you and your guest are enjoying your cocktail hour we will be in your grand ballroom photographing all of the details in your reception space.
Images of your wedding cake, couples dais, centerpieces, card box, table settings, guests seating chart, and menu with the bride's and groom's names on it, all tell the story of our couples wedding reception.
These detail photos are always chosen when selecting photos for your main wedding album and parent albums.
The Room shot is a wedding photography staple.
Usually, during your cocktail hour, the bridal attendant will bring you and your husband into the room to show you what everything looks like before your guests enter the room.
At this point, we will take one or two quick photos of the bride and groom together in the center of the dance floor.
I love to take this image because it shows off the bride's wedding dress, veil as well as the ballroom itself.
Your reception is going to be full of beautiful moments that we would love to photograph for you on your wedding day.
Once your reception starts, we will take many candid photos of everything from, the bridal parties grand entrance, the bride and grooms grand entrance, your first dance as husband and wife, the best man and maid of honor speeches, your parent dances, cake cutting ceremony, fun dancing photos of your guests to your creative night time wedding photos.
All of these photos are must-haves for any Villa Lombardi's brides.
Creative night-time wedding photos are a great addition to your wedding gallery.

Our team will take these photos quickly to get you and your husband back on the dance floor and enjoying your wedding.

The high ceilings, complimentary uplighting, and custom moldings will add depth to your wedding photos.
When we photograph your reception at Villa Lombardi's we will take an unobtrusive approach to give you the best candid wedding photos possible.
I will use a photograph technique called off-camera flash. This allows me to place the light where I want it, and not where I don't, which will give your images pop.
We love photographing receptions in the grand ballroom at Villa Lombardi's.
The gazebo at Villa Lombardi's is a multi-purpose space.
