i'm absolutely thrilled at the possibility of working with you (if we are the right fit for each other of course!)
photography isn't just a job... it's my life... it's what lights me up and makes me feel like i'm sharing a piece of myself with the world. my creative vision was a gift that i feel lucky enough to share. i still wake up every morning and count my blessings that i'm able to document some of the most intimate and precious moments in people's lives.
although i love shooting ALL types of sessions, i do specialize in weddings and newborns so i'm extremely limited in booking other sessions. for more examples of my work, please make sure to click on those bars, top right !
much love and i hope to be seeing you soon.

“Beyond 5 stars! I can’t say how beyond happy we are with Lottie & Michaela
being our dream team! They both are full of energy, have an artistic eye, pay
attention to detail, and direct you to create stunning photos. I’ve never done a
professional photo session (not even for our engagement) so I was a little
nervous. But they were so great at directing us, and it was MAGIC!
I absolutely recommend Lottie Lillian Photography to everyone!”

"We could not have been more pleased to work with Lottie. To begin, we live
out of town and were planning our wedding in Milwaukee from afar. Lottie
agreed to set up our initial interview via Skype, & we knew we liked her right
away! Throughout our entire planning process, she was extremely flexible
with us being far away and definitely made the effort to be able to meet with
us when we were in town, which was very limited! The first time we met in
person was for our engagement shoot, and on the day we initially had
scheduled for there was an intense blizzard. Lottie was more than willing to go
on with the shoot (even though we decided to reschedule) because she knew
we were only in town for a few days. I also really appreciated the time she
took to meet with us a few months before the wedding to plan our detailed
timeline for the day. Because of that meeting, we felt so much more prepared
for the day and it really helped everything run smoothly. Lottie was also a joy
to work with in person. We warned her that my husband and many of his
groomsmen are not the most comfortable getting their pictures taken, but you
would never have known it on our wedding day. She did such a great job with
the group and making everyone feel comfortable. Finally, the quality of her
photos are just superb. We just received our wedding gallery back and I have
seriously had friends and family comment that they are the most beautiful
wedding photos they have ever seen! Again, we could not be happier in our
decision to work with Lottie!"

“Lottie is so incredibly talented, and truly has a heart of gold. Her energy was
exactly what we needed on our wedding day and the pictures came out
AMAZING. I constantly have people reaching out and complimenting her
work. I’m so glad we were able to have her capture our special day!”
- Yanire & Jordan - Pritzlaff Wedding
"Lottie is truly someone you want by your side on your wedding day. She
has a great vision, makes the experience fun, has a great eye for
lighting, and knows how to make you comfortable. She also comes up
with angles/ideas you would never think of! She made both our
engagement and wedding so much fun where I can see hiring her for
years to come. I absolutely love our photos and we still get constant
compliments on them!"
-Alexandra & John - Milwaukee Historical Society Wedding
“To the amazing woman who traveled thousands of miles with us and
not only captured every detail of our wedding day but woke before the
sun rose to be at our room and lace me in my dress the morning after
because we got rained out on our wedding day- I have nothing but
love and appreciation for you. You may have started as our
photographer but you (and Ben) became our friends. I can only begin
to say thank you for your work, your commitment & most of all your
heart. You are one of a kind”
-Sharleen & Alex - Destination Jamaica wedding
“Lottie photographed our wedding this past July and we could not have been
happier with our photos! She captured such amazing candid shots and paid
attention to detail. She made our day go absolutely flawless.
Thank you so much Lottie!”
-Ray & Brittany - South Second Wedding
"Lottie is an amazing photographer!
She took us to some places for pictures that I didn't even know existed in
the city of Milwaukee!
I will be using her again for any of my photography needs!"
- Libby & Andy - Sangria Bar Wedding
"Lottie is amazing.
Her photos are to die for.
She's great and fun to work with, and she also
knows how to wrangle in the guys and family for
photos! I can't wait to see the rest of them!!!!
-Destinee & Cale - Brookfield Wedding
"When looking for photographers, there are seemingly endless
choices. Lottie was recommended to me by my hair stylist, and when I
saw her work I knew she had skills. But then I met with her in person
and her warm, encouraging, positive energy, and skill set as a
photographer won me over. We were very comfortable with her on
during all our pre-wedding meetings and on the wedding day. The
photos she took were absolutely gorgeous - we could not be more
happy with out they turned out! Her assistant, Gavyn, also did a great
job and provided more photo options and angles that we really
appreciated. I highly recommend her for any event, but especially for
