"White Lotus did a phenomenal job all around for our wedding!! Kami and her cophotographer were so creative with the different posses and also managed time perfectly so everything was done in a timely manor. I would truly recommend them to anyone for their wedding day!!" -Alysha and Ryan (8-18-18)
"If I could give White Lotus a million stars I would! This company is FANTASTIC to work with. Kami really works with you over the months leading up to your event to make sure your vision is understood. She provided us with two wonderful photographers for our event, Sara and Jolene. They arrived early and stayed a little late to make sure everything we needed was taken care of. I could go on for hours detailing every wonderful thing these two ladies did, but to keep it short and sweet, if you are looking for a wedding photographer, definitely go with White Lotus!" -Chelsea and Phillip (wedding 8-10-18)
"If I could put 10 stars on here I would. Kami and her team were absolutely incredible through and through. She not only kept me sane throughout the entire engagement photo/wedding day process - but put up with my chaos and kept me smiling!! Her amazing photos and moments captured were just the sweetest cherry on top. I cannot say enough great things about Kami, her level professionalism, and outstanding quality of photos. You will be so happy you booked Kami - I don't think I could have made it through my day without her!!" -Elise and Paul (7-14-18)
"Words cannot express how much we loved working with White Lotus Studios. We were looking for professionals that would be a lot of fun to work with so that they could capture us being ourselves on our wedding day. From the moment we met Kami, we knew we wanted to book White Lotus to be our photographers. We then had our engagement session with Sara and we knew we had made the right choice. Sara and Jolene captured every moment of the wedding and we hardly even knew they were there, but at the same time they were always around when we were looking to get a photo with family or friends. They were the best and worth every penny!!!" -Tracy and Tony (wedding: 6-23-18)
"White Lotus Studios Photography does an amazing job! We had a pretty "non-traditional" wedding -- a surprise ceremony during our engagement party. I gave Courtney a pretty tall order -- to complete family and bride/groom photos in under 20 minutes. She rose to the occasion without sacrificing the quality of the photos and did a wonderful job. The best part upon receiving our gallery back was seeing many of the moments I missed throughout the night." Kelsey and Matthew (wedding 3-3-18)
"My husband and I got married in October 2017 in Dayton, Ohio, and hired White Lotus photographers (Holly and Jolene) for 8 hours of coverage. We absolutely loved them! They were on time, professional, and so easy to talk to. The captured so many beautiful moments from our wedding, we are having difficulty paring it down to 45 for our wedding album! Holly and Jolene really went above and beyond by scouting out awesome locations to take pictures--places I never even knew existed, and I grew up in Dayton! We would absolutely recommend White Lotus to anyone." Jennifer and Dan (wedding 10-21-17)
"Kami and Leigh were amazing! We got married October 21 and had never met Kami before our wedding. We are in Cleveland and had a hard time finding a photographer here. I heard about them and booked them after only emailing with Kami. I am so glad I did! They did an amazing job! The only bad part is waiting for your pictures but they are worth it! The hardest part is trying to pick which ones to print because there are so many good ones! I am super critical and picky and Kami did everything possible to meet my needs. I can't say enough great things about them! :)" Bri and Andrew (wedding 10-21-17)
"Kami and her team did an amazing job throughout the whole planning process and wedding. I just got all our pictures and I cannot stop looking at them, they are beautiful." Nili and Michael (wedding 10-14-17)
"Kami and her team did an amazing job on our wedding and engagement photos. We loved working with her. She was organized, professional, and a real pleasure to coordinate with. Highly recommend!" Maria and Josh (wedding 10-7-17)
"Kami and her crew are absolutely amazing!! They have super fun suggestions and are able to change location on the spot. We were supposed to go to the Purple People bridge for pictures but the heat index was through the roof. 15 minutes before pictures were supposed to start she came up with a new location and even made sure we had the perfect spot by allowing us to drive around the block a few times in the limo until we found the PERFECT first look spot." Courtney and PJ (wedding 9-22-17)
"Wow! We received our pictures back and I am beyond happy with how they turned out!! Kami and her team are amazing. They were able to get all the pictures I wanted and more. Adam and I both had 8 people in our wedding parties and lots of immediate family to photograph and all the pictures I wanted were there in the gallery. Also, Adam and I don’t love to have our picture taken and we are both smiling in every photo. I am so happy with my pictures and can’t wait to share them with family and friends." Courtney and Adam (wedding 9-9-17)
"I could not be any happier with the turn out of our wedding photos! They knew exactly what I wanted going into it and did not let me down! I’m so incredibly happy to have had White Lotus Studios do our pictures. The ladies were so much fun to have worked with and their personalities were so bright! I would recommend anyone and everyone to them!" Annie and Ben (wedding 9-2-17)
"Kami and Jolene were amazing! They were so organized, efficient, and fun. Everyone in our wedding party had a fantastic time taking pictures, and we were absolutely thrilled with how everything turned out. Kami was quick to return emails and calls and she was incredibly professional throughout the entire process. We loved White Lotus Studios and we will definitely be recommending them to our family and friends!" Elizabeth and Brody (wedding 7-28-17)
"Wow! We cannot begin to explain how amazing/wonderful Kami and Jolene are. We met with Kami at the beginning of our engagement to see if our personalities would match and I knew immediately she was the perfect fit for my husband and I. She made us feel so comfortable during every step of the way, from picking a package, to emailing us about our pictures after the wedding. Kami took our engagement pictures and helped us pick the perfect location for what we were looking for (my husband and I were clueless and had no idea where to start with locations). She made us feel comfortable and natural. We met Jolene with Kami for our wedding day pictures and they were a great team for us. I felt like my husband and I became friends with them! We ended up getting married on the hottest day of the year, and even when I felt overwhelmed and overheated, Kami and Jolene made me feel cool, calm, and collected. They made the formal pictures on our wedding day go so smoothly, even though it felt like 105 degrees (in a non-AC church!)
On top of how wonderful they are in person, they are truly such skilled photographers. They captured our wedding day better than my husband and I can even remember it. We are still trying to pick our favorite pictures because we have so many! I truly could not imagine our wedding day (and engagement) without Kami. For my husband and I, it was sad to say goodbye to her at the end of our reception, but we will certainly hire her again for future photography needs! I cannot recommend Kami and Jolene enough...they're wonderful!" Kristen and Nick (wedding 7-22-17)
"Cannot more highly recommend!! We used White Lotus for wedding day photography . They took great care of us and felt part of the family by the end of the day. Professional, quick to respond & great to work with. Did a great job of ensuring we got the photos we requested and corralling family members. Pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL, we continue to get compliments on them. Thank you Kami & White Lotus!" Amy and Cameron (wedding 7-1-17)
"Kami and her team are professional in every sense of the word. Prior to our wedding, we spoke with Kami extensively to plan out exactly how we wanted our pictures and the time restraints of the wedding day. Kami was responsive, gave great recommendations, and was very helpful.
Our photographers were Courtney and Jolene. Courtney was with the girls, Jolene with the guys. They were punctual, helped pick amazing spots for pictures, and gave great direction during the shots. It is GREAT having a photographer that helps you know how to stand, turn, and catch the best light. Courtney and Jolene stayed throughout all of the big moments during the wedding without making anyone feel overwhelmed or crowded, also a great trait in a photographer.
We were married at The Phoenix and Courtney and Jolene knew the best spots to take pictures of the wedding party and our guests. They were also helped a very distracted bride stay on task :)
I highly recommend White Lotus Studios to everyone. The prices are very reasonable and we were more than thrilled with the level of service!" -Madeson and Neal (wedding 8-6-16)
"There simply aren't enough words to describe how amazing White Lotus Photography is to work with. Courtney and Jolene shot my daughter's wedding day and out of 1,800 photos, there honestly isn't a bad one! They captured some of the most special little moments that could have been easily missed, but they didn't miss them. From the preparations, to the smallest details, they captured them all. The photos are absolutely gorgeous! We have received an overwhelming amount of compliments on the photos and can't tell you how many times we've heard "those pictures should be in a bridal magazine!" Truly incredible, and more perfect than we had even hoped for!
Thank you, Kami, Courtney and Jolene for doing such a beautiful job immortalizing my girl's most special day. So blessed we found you!" -Madeson's mom (wedding 8-6-16)
"My new wife and I were extremely happy with our pictures from White Lotus Studio for our recent wedding bash in Cincinnati! From the very beginning they were extremely communicative and professional, offering tons of much needed advice about area vendors. Day of we he had Sarah as our photographer, she arrived early and was really easy to work with. She was extremely friendly and got to know us and our family and ended up taking the most amazing pics! We received our edited photos within a month and could not have been happier! I highly recommend this photographer to anyone looking for the perfect memories of your big day!" -Sarah and Gram (wedding 7-9-16)
"I could go on forever about how much I loved working with Kami and White Lotus Studios! From the first day that I met Kami I knew she would do a great job . Our engagement pictures were fantastic and she knew exactly what to do to make them wonderful. On our wedding day she was very accommodating to my large family and my multiple different picture requests. Even though it was a rainy day, they found a great covered spot to take some outdoor pictures. She had many wonderful ideas that turned into beautiful pictures. When I got our final pictures I was blown away with how beautiful they were. I loved all of the detail that she took to the pictures and I will have them to treasure for the rest of my life. I would recommend Kami and White Lotus to anyone getting married in the future." -Christy and Jason (weding 4-30-16)
"Kami and Courtney did an absolutely wonderful job! They were always available, yet, you had no idea they were there. My family complimented how nice they were to work with. The pictures are perfect and captured the day exactly as I wanted it." -Lisa and Joe (wedding 4-23-16)
"Had such a BLAST working with Kami & Courtney!! And BEAUTIFUL photos!
When we first met with Kami we knew right away that we wanted to work with her. Aside from being a fellow OU alumni (Go Bobcats!), we loved her personality and not to mention her work! I had the pleasure of working with both photographers we had on our wedding day prior to the big day. Courtney took our engagement pictures and did a fantastic job! She is really fun to work with and the photos turned out amazing! I was worried about my husband and how he would do with so many pictures but Courtney did such a great job of making it fun and an enjoyable experience!
I worked with Kami for a surprise boudoir photo shoot that I gave to him in a book on our wedding day. She did an AMAZING job making what you would think to be an uncomfortable photoshoot very comfortable and so much FUN. I was really nervous beforehand about doing it and wasn't sure how I would feel basically in my underwear with someone I had only met a couple of times, but Kami was so good about keeping it fun the entire time and making me relaxed. It was a blast and the pictures turned out so good! I definitely recommend to any bride that is considering a boudoir...just DO IT!
By the time our wedding rolled around I felt like I knew both Courtney and Kami so well and I was confident and comfortable the whole day knowing they would keep us on schedule and take beautiful pictures. We had a HUGE bridal party 11 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen, 2 ring bearers (4 year olds they were great with the little ones) and a flower girl (not to mention large families on both sides that we wanted to include in pictures after the ceremony). They were AWESOME in keeping our large group on schedule and having fun the entire time. Our pictures turned out better than I could have imagined and the day was a blast!!"
-Chrisin and Tyler (weddig: 6-6-15)
"I used white lotus June 2014 for my wedding pictures . They were great ! They were quick with getting back to me with all my annoying questions, and the girls that took my photos were super nice and fun to work with. I highly recommend !!" -Julie and Paul (wedding: 6-27-14)
"I am absolutely in LOVE with my photos from not only my wedding day but also my engagement photos. White Lotus Studios team really hit the ball out of the park with the work they did and I couldn't be any more pleased with their professional but also very friendly work and employees. I highly suggest White Lotus Studios to anyone getting married and I have been passing that along as well as sharing all the beautiful photos of the most memorable day of my life. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you again!!!!!" -Julie and Matt (wedding: 6-14-14)
"Kami, Courtney, and Amy from White Lotus photographed, and edited our photos from my wedding. ALL 3 LADIES WERE AMAZING ! Kami from the day we met her til the day we got our photos was spot on. Her pictures and products speak for themselves. Courtney and Amy actually photographed the wedding and they drove 3 HOURS ! to get there, on top of doing the best job EVER ! They were discrete, polite, and still managed to get every shot down to the details. I couldn't have asked for a better photography crew, and look forward to using them again in the future. "
-Jessica and Lawrence (wedding: 5-24-14)
"The photographers from White Lotus Studios made a special day even more special! They were so fun and easy to work with on our wedding day. The pictures look fantastic. We couldn't be happier!"
-Abbey and Nick (wedding: 6-21-14)
"Kami and her team were great! We decided on White Lotus pretty much right after they did my sister's wedding last year and we were so happy we did :) They did a fantastic job with all of the shots, making sure we had enough of each type (family, portrait, details, etc.) and were able to mix in creative/fun shots with the traditional style shots. They were also able to grab a bunch of fun candid shots too and were very fun to work with! Now the hard part is figuring out which ones to print! "
-Erin and Pat (wedding: 6-7-14)
“White Lotus Photography was a no brainer choice for me! Kami was my sister's photographer, and she also did my cousins' weddings that were married before me. I knew she would do a great job. She is super sweet and very efficient when working. Kami even helped keep me calm during the wedding day craziness,” says Stephanie. (Venue Magazine interview Feb. 2014)
White Lotus Studios Photography did a FABULOUS job with our wedding! Our photographers Courtney and Amy made our day even more fun and special with their enthusiasm and did an excellent job capturing the great moments of our day! HIGHLY recommend!
-Hannah and Kyle (wedding 8-24-13)
Kami and her team did an amazing job at our wedding. I met with close to 10 photographers before Kami, and I knew almost instantly that she was the perfect fit for us. She is very professional, but laid-back at the same time. She brought a sense of humor to the day and made everyone feel so comfortable, which was great for calming my nerves and giving me one less thing to worry about during the day of the wedding.
Kami is more than just a photographer - she almost takes on the role of wedding planner. We had a very tight time frame in between our ceremony and reception, and Kami kept us all organized, and was able to get tons of great photos without us ever feeling rushed. Our ceremony was at St. Francis de Sales, and reception was at The Cincinnati Club downtown. Kami had shot both locations before, so she knew lots of great spots for photos that I wouldn't have thought of otherwise.
Kami really listens to what you want throughout the day. I wanted a mixture of classic shots and more artistic photos, which she did a perfect job of capturing. She has an amazing eye for creative group and individual pictures - which was great, because I am not creative at all!
Because of Kami's work, I have over 1500 photos of my wedding. They are extremely easy to navigate through, as Kami has them categorized into sections such as Preparation (getting ready before the wedding at the hotel), Ceremony, Details (pictures of the rings, my dress, flowers), etc... I honestly had so many fantastic pictures to choose from that I haven't even been able to narrow down my favorites for an album. If you do decide to order an album, Kami works with you on the layout and sends you a preview before printing.
Kami is very reasonably priced for how much time she and her assistant spend with you; plus the packages are all completely customizable. If you want a wonderful photographer who is easy to work with, professional, and talented on top of it, I highly recommend White Lotus!
-Rebecca and Kyle (wedding 5-11-13)
It was great working with this studio. Kami prepared us well for the wedding day and what to expect. Our 2 photographers Sara and Courtney were awesome. They made us feel very comfortable and clearly knew what they were doing and had creative ideas for the photos. They were also flexible and incorporated our requests as well. Would highly recommend this studio.
-Janet and Jesse (wedding: 5-4-13)
The wedding photography was one of the most important things to me as I use photos to decorate my place all over and it is a way to keep special memories close to heart. White Lotus Studios went above and beyond my expectations and truly made the entire process smooth. The photographers were sweet and kept everyone on schedule. They made great suggestions along the way, and truly cared about what they were doing and making sure our wedding day was fantastic! I couldn't have asked for more in the quality of the pictures and they were returned back to me very quickly after the wedding. They have an amazing attention to detail in both the engagement photos and in the wedding photos. They were extremely responsive along the way during the process which was appreciated as I always had random questions here and there. And I don't want to forget....Affordable! We met with a number of photographers that would not have done near as fantastic of a job as White Lotus and were definitely trying to overcharge. All in all, we enjoyed working with White Lotus Photography and I would recommend them to any bride and groom! -Tara and Luke (4-20-13)
Awesome photography and the sweetest employees! They are friendly, energic and have wonderful unique ideas! -Whitney and Adam (wedding 4-6-13)
Working with White Lotus Studios was amazing!! The photographers were so easy and fun to work with and our pictures turned out wonderful. Couldn't have asked for better! -Heather and Adam (wedding 3-9-13)
Go With White Lotus
Candace was our wedding photographer with Jolene and both ladies were so fun and energetic. Candance shot our engagement photos and I was delighted she could do our wedding too. Although we don't have the actual wedding photos back yet, I know they will be amazing because our engagement pics were. I had so many compliments from the bridal party and my parents that the ladies were fun and very professional. I will continue to use them in the future for photography needs! Kami, the owner always got back to me within a few hours too!
-Amy and Aaron (wedding 12-29-12)
The photographers were great to work with and had wonderful idea for photos. Very professonional and high quality photographs.
-Jenn and Matt (wedding: 11-17-12)
WE are so glad we chose White Lotus. Kami won us over immediately - you can tell she is passionate about her business and providing exceptional service. Amy and Sara photographed our wedding and they were amazing - very efficient and accommodating. We can't wait to see the final album!
-Marianne and Tyler (wedding: 10-20-12)
White Lotus had won me over before I was even looking. I had been part of a friend’s wedding 2 summers prior to my own and loved her photos. Kami was the lead photographer and made taking pictures a ton of fun. I really enjoyed how she took unique shots that you don’t typically see.
Needless to say, when I got engaged, picking a photographer was a no brainer.I did have a small freak out moment when Kami told me she would no longer be able photograph my wedding, due to the fact she would be very pregnant or a very new mom. (geeze the nerve :) However I was pleasantly surprised. I loved Courtney and Jolene, they did a great job. Courtney was able to contain the craziness of my bridal party and get great photos at the same time. They were friendly, fun and made me feel at ease the whole time. I would recommend White Lotus Studios to anyone!
-Alicia and Logan (wedding 9-8-12)
The Perfect Option
After looking at three other photographers, the moment we met with Kami we knew White Lotus Studios would be our photographer. She was very professional and very welcoming. She did an excellent job expalining packages and allowing us to mix and match to fit our needs.
Candice completed our engagment photos and they turned out great. It was very timely getting our pictures back and we were able to order quickly. The best thing about the photographers was they did not make us do cheesy poses that were not realistic. We wanted natural photos and they did an excellent job with that.
On our wedding day, White Lotus arrived on time, and shot all the pictures we wanted. Candice and Joleen did an amazing job with grandparent pics, and help me take my veil off, and get us a drink! Our wedding was at Alms park late summer, so I know it was very hot for them.
The best thing about our experience with white lotus was how our wedding pics turned out. They are beautiful and really captured the essence of our day. I have the discs of all the pictures and it has been amazing to print them out for my mom and family members. I would recommend White Lotus to my closest friends, and I know we will use their service in the future!
-Denielle and Spencer (wedding 8-25-12)
These ladies did such a great job. Not only did the photos turn out great but they went through all those stuffy family photo shots very quickly. They also did a great job with the fun bridal party photos.
-Kristen and Greg (wedding 9-1-12)
Kami and her team did a fantastic job! She was prepared for rain or shine. All the photos turned out amazing! We still can't pick our favorites because they are all wonderful! She and her team truly captured the entire day from start to finish! I couldn't have asked for anything more! I highly recommend White Lotus! They are all friendly, professional, patient an know exactly what to do and when.
-Christina and Aaron (wedding: 4-28-12)
Kami and White Lotus Studios are AMAZING! First off I was a bride moving from Canada to the USA. I had just over one month to figure out everything! From the very beginning Kami was accomodating and helpful. She didn't hesitate to book us and even gave suggestions for other vendors who would be available and fantastic. The pictures speak for themselves! As a large woman, pictures have never been my friend, but Kami really did take amazing shots were I actually think I look beautiful. From the giggles I have when looking at shots with my parents to drooling over the GQ magazine shots of my husband, they are all absolutely amazing. Thank you Thank you Thank you White Lotus Studios!
