I'm so happy you found me! My goal is to serve you by providing the most beautiful photographs you could ever imagine.

One important thing to know about me is that I'm an extremely hard worker. I want my work to be perfect and I will do everything I can to make it so.

Getting married? My philosophy is simple: I will work for you on your special day and will deliver on the promises I make. The last thing you need to worry about on your wedding day is disorganization. I will help you stay on track and on schedule. I will get the photos you want and need and will do it all while maintaining my smile and friendly disposition. I will be with you every step of the way.

While weddings are the primary part of my business, I also enjoy taking portraits of people. I shoot portrait sessions for families, high school seniors, business professionals, and men and women wanting to express themselves through boudoir photos.

One other important fact about my work. You won't wait several weeks to months to get your images back. My practice is to get your photos and video to you within about two weeks.

about me 

Just the facts

I love to travel. I've been to several states, Mexico, Canada, Tahiti and to Europe, and there are so many more places I want to go!

I was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and lived for several years in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. My roots are in the Midwest!

My husband Tony is a schoolteacher who is obsessed with bike riding. He is from southern California, so I sometimes get a taste of the West Coast life.

I love animals. I have two little dogs and two cats. If I'm not at my computer working on my business, you'll probably find me walking dogs.

I don't have a lot of down time, but when I do I'll likely be catching up on the latest  on Netflix.

I have a chief videographer

I love formal dresses, and have a large collection available for photo shoots.

Three words that describe me: calm, persistent and optimistic.

    When I was growing up, I never planned to have my own photography business. I did, though, love taking pictures. I took pictures for the school yearbook, and in college I took photos as a journalism major.
    Most of my career was spent as a journalist. I worked as a newspaper reporter and editor and occasionally took photos for my articles. While I loved writing, the photo part was great because I loved being creative.
    During this time, motivated by my love for cameras, I started videotaping weddings. That gig only lasted a couple years – until a decade ago. My brother, who also had an interest in video, started a wedding video business. I eagerly decided to help him in the venture.
    A few years later, I realized there were very few companies that offered both wedding video and wedding photography. So I decided to add photography to our business model. While I had taken photography classes in school and had experience taking photos, I decided I would start portrait photography by offering free sessions to family and friends. I gained experience through practice, and along the way took extensive online photography classes.
    The family video business known as Moments in Time was later changed to Lori Black Photography as the photography part took center stage. Now Lori Black Photography is one of the premier photography companies in Lincoln.
    Through the years I’m proud to have taken hundreds photos at hundreds of portrait sessions and weddings.
