Rising Lotus couples value the art of photography and the lasting legacy it offers. Our most popular wedding collections were created to be all-inclusive and feature the most sought after products and services. Basic wedding commissions start at 3200 dollars.  I understand that every wedding is as unique as the couple exchanging vows, so contact me to discuss building a custom collection that's tailored to your needs. 



The Rising Lotus approach blends gentle direction—so you’re not left feeling unsure of what to do—with genuine, unprompted moments so your photography collection reflects you being you. This means we strive to find a balance between being unobtrusive while providing assistance (we’ve been known to carry the bouquets and offer Kleenex) and styling the details with a curator’s eyes.

The work continues well after your wedding! After editing your photos, a comprehensive gallery is created to tell the story of your day, from those nervous getting ready moments to the fun had during your reception. Within 10 to 14 weeks, you’ll be given access to a private online gallery with a print release so you may share the images with your family and friends. You’ll also have the opportunity to order professional quality prints, custom albums and unique printed products to showcase in your home.  In the end, the cherished moments that make up your wedding day are preserved for you to enjoy and relive again, creating a lasting legacy.
