    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-based portrait and wedding photographer and wedding 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 photo and video work in Lincoln, Omaha and beyond. 
      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.

Oh Hey!

Lori is amazing! She was super helpful not only during the wedding day but also in the weeks and months leading up to our wedding. She responded super fast and answered our questions very professionally, even when we had already asked them once before! She helped our wedding day stick to the timeline and made sure to take a picture of everyone that was there. We had multiple guests come up to us on the night of and afterwards commenting on how efficient and professional Lori was! I would highly recommend anyone who is considering her to hire her!

 Tips for A GREAT ENGAGEMENT session 

on the blog

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!

Lori got the best pictures of our family and, somehow, she even managed to get perfect smiles from our 2 and 4 year olds. Truly an impossible feat!
