    We used Lori for my wedding last year (June 2007). I was just looking at my wedding pictures again this past weekend (since it's coming up to our 1 year anniversary!) and I got that wedding feeling all over again! So I thought I would yelp Lori because I loved the pictures! Her rate was reasonable, the style was fun, the pictures were awesome.

    We just used Lori for our very small wedding on Feb. 5. She has zero-ego, unlike some photographers, and she's very personable and great to work with. She's open to trying all different types of perspectives. We found her really wonderful to work with -- it was like we had another friend at our wedding, and we'd only met her one other time. Her prices were extermely reasonable. We highly recommend her!

    Lori has an amazing eye for photography and is very easy to work with. I hired her to photograph some very difficult snack photos and she not only made the food look more appetizing, but did some atmospheric photos (snacks on plates with tea cups) that evoked elegance and fun--two qualities that are often very hard to capture at the same time. She clearly has talent for stylization as well as the actual photographing. Some photographers need a food stylist but Lori can do both!


    I had serious miscommunication issues from the gecko (was in a rush to leave for a long trip) and was also unable to provide feedback to Lori since I was abroad with bad Internet connection and no phone. But she not only over-delivered from taking beautiful shots and taking time to do post-processing, but made sure that I was thrilled with the results despite my particular requests and lack of communication while away.


    Easy to work with, personable, patient and helpful, I would recommend Lori to anyone looking to get top-quality, professional photos and the chance to work with someone who is creative, open-minded and kind.
