I feel like my appreciation and admiration for Marilyn and the Rising Lotus team can’t fully come across in an online review. She is an absolute joy to work with! She takes the time to get to know you as a couple and tries to capture what is special about you as individuals and as a couple in her photos. She created a super detailed timeline that helped us get all the photos we wanted in a timely fashion and stay right on track. She’s so kind and thoughtful with a lovely disposition that made spending all day with her fantastic. She knows when to step up and speak out to get the perfect shot while still being mindful of everyone’s needs and desires. Her artistic eye is remarkable and our photos (the ones we’ve received so far) are stunning!!! She is really wonderful at what she does and so diligent, working through the night just to get us our sneak peak. Also, special shout out to her assistant Asha for dealing with our groomsmen, she was a saint. Overall, I can’t be more thankful that we hired Marilyn and Rising Lotus for our wedding day and to look at our photos every single day!!!Sent on 06/28/2019

Marilyn did a phenomenal job photographing my wedding! While we haven't received the photos yet (we got married less than a month ago), I can just tell I am going to LOVE them by the previews she sent us. She is such a pleasure to work with, very patient, creative - all the things you look for in a photographer! I truly can't say enough positive things about Marilyn and her team. If I had to do it all over again, I would book Marilyn a million times over!!Sent on 03/01/2019

If there is one piece of advice I would give a fellow bride, it's LOVE LOVE LOVE your photographer. And man, oh man. Marilyn is the BEST. Seriously. I would have been a hot mess if it hadn't been for her cool and calm head, and gorgeous photos. She's also so sweet, and willing to help out when necessary (like when you have a surprise wedding, and need to send out postcards next day to tell the world). I interviewed many photographers, and I knew from our first call that she was the right person for us - and I was right. THANK YOU MARILYN!!Sent on 06/15/2018
These days every cell phone comes equipped with a better camera than most people owned 10 years ago. So when hiring a wedding photographer, the gear is of less than expected significance. The goal is to find a seasoned professional with a well practiced routine, the ability to communicate well with their clients, and an eye for beautiful images. Rising Lotus provides these and more in spades. You can trust that the experience before, during and after your wedding will be pleasant, and that your photos will be images you can share proudly for generations to come!
Marilyn was a pleasure to work with and has a wonderful eye. I highly recommend her for all of your photography needs.
