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

When we photograph your wedding day, the first images we photograph are your engagement ring, wedding bands, wedding dress, veil, wedding invitation, and save-the-date.  These small detail photos help us tell the story of your wedding.

Bride Getting Ready Wedding Photos

After we are done photographing your details, we then move on to taking getting ready photos of the bride.  I usually ask the mother of the bride as well as the maid-of-honor to help the bride to be put on her wedding dress, veil, and any other details.  These images are photographed very candidly.  We love taking pretty posed photos but I also believe great candid wedding photography is the heart and soul of any wedding album.

First Look with the Father of the Bride & Bridal Party

Moments like the father of the bride seeing his baby girl for the first time in her wedding dress are priceless. 

Your wedding photos are the only thing you have after the big day.  We want to make sure that we capture all of these great moments for you and your fianc to enjoy for the rest of your lives.  I love the expressions of the bridesmaids and of course, the father of the bride's smile says it all.

Candid Ceremony Wedding Photos - Watermill Wedding Gallery

When we photograph your wedding ceremony, there are many great candid moments we want to capture.  The first time the groom sees his bride-to-be walking down the aisle, your vows, ring exchange ceremony, the mother of the bride crying, or the bridal party cheering you on, and of course, your first kiss as husband and wife.  These are all moments you are going to want to cherish and include in your wedding album.

Beautiful Church Wedding Photos of The Bride and Groom Together

After your ceremony is completed, you are officially husband and wife.  I like to take the couple back into the church to take a few traditional portraits of them in the church before we head over the Watermill Caterers. After I take a traditional photo, I like to also take a creative image.  This gives the couple options when choosing images for their thank you card and wedding album.

Bride and Groom Room Shoot at Watermill Caterers

The room shot at Watermill Caterers is a must-have for any couple.  About 10 minutes before your cocktail hour ends your bridal attendant will grab you and bring you into your ballroom.  They are going to want to show you your room before your guests enter.  At this point, we have already photographed the details and have set up all of the lighting necessary to take this photo.  I like this image because it shows off the bride's wedding dress, the groom's tux, the uplighting in the ballroom, and gives you a sense of space of your reception space all in one photo.
