    I am the photographer behind Lori Black Photography. I’m so excited you are here and I promise you that you are in the right place.
     I’ve been a Lincoln, Nebraska and Omaha-based portrait and wedding photographer and videographer for nearly a decade. (Wow! I can’t believe I’ve been doing this that long!!)
    A little background on myself – I am a former journalist who took photos for my career. However the portrait and wedding side of photography is something I feel I’ve become good at through a lot of self-teaching, online studying and practice, practice, practice!
      Personally, I’m married to Tony Black, a Lincoln schoolteacher and mad bicycling enthusiast. We have four pets – two small dogs and two cats. I spent lots of time walking dogs!
      I love my photographer career because I am creative and love creating beautiful, natural and artistic pictures. I focus my family, senior, boudoir and business portrait work in Lincoln and my wedding work in Lincoln, Omaha and beyond. Are you getting married somewhere else? Just ask me. I do travel!
      My goal is not to just give you beautiful photographs but also to give you an awesome experience. I promise I'll work extremely hard for you. Check out my 50-some 5-star ratings on Google. I'm happy to say my clients are happy with my work.
     Simply put, I love what I do and I treat every wedding and portrait session as if it were my own.

"Lori is an amazing person and photographer! She takes beautiful pictures and gave us a lot of ideas and ways to pose for our wedding that didn't look at all boring or typical. So easy to work with, and we had a phenomenal day with zero worries or stresses with her. Thank you so much Lori for everything. You not only gave us amazing memories, you joined us and helped us make amazing memories on our wedding day. Our photos are amazing, and from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much. You are amazingly talented and were a joy to work with!"

"Lori did an excellent job photographing my wedding. We absolutely love the photos. They're gorgeous. She also provided excellent videos of the ceremony, reception and highlights of my big day! She was timely and very easy to work with. She went out of her way to scope out the church beforehand to get ideas for my pictures and even provided an engagement session to get to know us before the wedding. Lori is committed to her work and very reasonably priced!"
