Rising Lotus Photography | Love Notes

Love Notes from Rising Lotus Clients


"I would say hands down the single best decision we made was choosing you to shoot our wedding. Your photos take my breath away and they truly bring out the feelings I have for the people in my life. Your ability to capture the beauty around us and the emotion within us is incredible. - Melissa, Bride

"Can't say enough great things about Marilyn and her staff. They went above and beyond to make sure our pictures turned out amazing. They made sure we got out pictures done in a timely manner after the ceremony. Marilyn's dedication to her clients is unheard of. From driving over and hour to scout the venue for our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. To working timelessly to get our engagement pictures back for our party. As someone who hates getting their picture taken, I enjoyed taking my wedding pictures and Marilyn and her staff made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Thank you again for all your hard work!" - Megan, Bride

"If you know Marilyn you know how amazing she is in general, but the time and effort she puts into her photography is truly incredible. Our wedding was a backyard wedding at my mom's. Upon first meeting with Marilyn we had no time frame for the day's events and to be honest were completely anxious about how the day was going to go. In less than an hour Marilyn essentially mapped out our wedding timeline, eased our nerves, and actually helped us get excited about our big day. The day of the wedding, her patience with my crazy family and ability to be flexible while still helping us keep up with the timeline of events blew my mind. Not only are my photos incredible, but I feel like Marilyn really captured who my husband and I are as a couple. She really takes the time to make it individualized and special. 5 stars all the way. She will be my go to from here on out for all my new family's milestones."-Morgan, Bride


"Marilyn was wonderful to work with. She was more of an extension of our wedding guests versus a vendor. She will know more people in your two families than your own Aunt Sally. And not because she was seeking them for a photo, but because of how personal she is. Other exceptional qualities include: Compassionate Detail Oriented (even provided a day of schedule!) Great with kids! Love her user friendly site to download and share photos." -Hailey, Bride


"We couldn't be happier with our wedding photographs! Marilyn was so easy to work with yet was so professional. She had wonderful ideas and executed our vision perfectly. We would absolutely, positively, definitely recommend Rising Lotus Photography to anyone looking for beautiful, meaningful, and priceless photographs!"-Andrea, Bride


"My husband and I chose Rising Lotus Photography to be our photographer for our wedding last month and we are so happy that we did! Marilyn is so professional and goes above and beyond what you would expect from a photographer! If you are looking for a fantastic photographer with an amazing eye for perfection then Rising Lotus Photography is the way to go! I would recommend Marilyn to everyone!" - Jennifer, Bride

"Marilyn and her team worked with our tight schedule and multiple needs. We had an 11:00 am ceremony with our reception to follow and end at 3:00. She exceeded my expectations! We got the shots and the day went smoothly. She was super easy to work with and actually helped keep me calm on such an emotional day. Being able to play with each other and our photographer allowed us to capture some of my favorite shots. She brings her big heart into all of her projects and see a little piece of her kind spirit in our portfolio. We received the photos in a timely manner and will recommend anyone to her!"- Megan, Bride


"Rising Lotus was outstanding! Marilyn was so sweet and so helpful. We very thrilled with all the pictures she gave us. There were so many and they were all good. She had cute ideas that were different than every other engagement photo you see." - Cameron, Engaged Bride


"Seriously, I have no idea how you did it, but these pictures are absolutely amazing! I am so happy with how good they turned out. The way you captured us...sexy, fun, playful...BRILLIANT!!! I really hate taking pictures and was skeptical that I'd like pictures of me, but you've blown me away. There isn't one I can say I hate and there are so many I love I can't even pick a favorite. I'm sooo happy you are going to be there on my big day. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!"- Candice, Bride


"I hired Rising Lotus Photography for a special photo session with my daughter. It was such an amazing experience to work with her. Marylin took a precious "mommy and daughter" moment and captured it onto absolutely stunning photographs that we will be able to treasure for a lifetime." -Katherine, Mom

"Wow!!!!! Marilyn is absolutely amazing on so many levels. For starters, she is so genuine and excited about what she does and her passion and love truly shows. She made me feel so at ease with her. She truly went above and beyond all of my expectations from the first time I spoke with her to following up with her now for planning a family photo shoot. She is timely, organized and extremely professional. That doesn't even touch on her amazing abilities to photograph, the editing, and capturing the moments. I was not expecting to get my photos back so quick or the slide show she sent to me ahead of time. All of my guest continue to tell me how amazing Marilyn was which also really says something. She truly made my night amazing and I know that I had the best photographer out there <3 " - Kelly, Bride

"Marilyn is a very talented photographer, no doubt about it. But even more important than that, she is a total sweetheart. She was so patient with me and my bridal party during our portraits when we were being constantly interrupted by phone calls, people knocking on the door, upset kids crying around and relatives running late for the portraits. She made this whole experience magical, I truly felt like a super model and I was really excited about every single shot we were setting. Just by looking at the couple of photos she has sent us as preview I know that we made the right choice hiring Rising Lotus. They are absolute perfection. Thanks Marilyn for your hard work. It was a pleasure working with you." -Lina, Bride

"Marilyn truly has a gift for capturing the moments that matter the most! I couldn't be more thrilled with my experience with Rising lotus photography! Marilyn has given my family an experience and pictures we will forever cherish. I will definitely use her in the future and would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!" -Alexis, New Mom

"Marilyn is absolutely amazing. She takes beautiful shots and captures the most precious moments. She is extremely talented and loves every second of what she is doing. Her work is filled with love and passion." - Mindy, Engaged

"Marilyn is an amazing photographer. She was with us the entire time, from the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, morning of the wedding, ceremony and reception; capturing memories that will be cherished forever. She is very flexible and attentive, with an amazing eye for photography. She is very comfortable to work with as well as passionate about what she does; taking time and focusing on what was truly important to my (now husband) and I. We were truly grateful we found Rising Lotus Photography for our wedding." -Kristy, Bride

"I could have never expected such a wonderful outcome that Marilyn delivered - she went above and beyond on both capturing beautiful images and mailing a beautiful CD afterward with great packaging and prompt delivery. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!"- Laura

"Marilyn shot our first family pictures, and I couldn't have picked a better photographer. She was so attentive to detail and incredibly patient with my 2 children, ages 9 months and (almost!) 4 year old. She was open to my suggestions and spent a lot of time to ensure she got "the shot" with each pose. She is genuine, honest, humble, and her love for capturing artistic moments in time is so refreshing! We are beyond happy with our session's images that we are already planning the next one! If you're looking for a photographer who is not only qualified but award-winning, take a look at her images, they speak for themselves!"- Amanda, Mom
