Welcome to my blog. On this page you will find articles I personally write about the photography industry and my work. You will also see blogs showing the photos from many of my photo sessions.
As a professional wedding and portrait photographer, getting recognition for doing a good job is always a welcoming occurrence.
Getting recognition isn’t real easy these days. Lots of people don’t want to provide reviews unless they are bad ones. Quite frankly, I ask most of my clients to leave me a review and probably less than 5 percent actually do. Most people just don’t want to bother with them or take the time to do them.
That’s why it’s really nice to get unexpected recognition out of the blue. This happened in the last week when I was notified by a company called Peerspace that Lori Black Photography was in its list of top 10 wedding photographers in Lincoln. Number 2 to be exact.
I admit I was not familiar with Peerspace. I have never looked at the company’s website, never contacted them – nothing. So this recognition was not based on any interaction I have had with Peerspace.
I looked up Peerspace this morning. It helps people book space for events. One of the spaces they help people find are photo studios, which I’m assuming explains their interest in photography.
Peerspace introduced its top 10 wedding photographers in Lincoln with the following paragraph:
“Weddings are a big deal—from the first stroke of lipstick in the morning to the final toasts at the end of the reception, it’s a day absolutely packed with emotion, action, nerves, laughter, and love. The best wedding photographers in Lincoln, Nebraska, know exactly how to capture all those overwhelming feelings and make newlyweds look absolutely at ease through the thick of it! Under the endless Nebraskan sky, there are several photographers whom we would be remiss not to bring to your attention, and so without further ado, here are the top wedding photographers in Lincoln, Nebraska!”
Here are some kind words Peerspace wrote about Lori Black Photography:
Many of Lori Black’s photos feel more like stepping into a princess fantasy world than reality. Exquisite dresses drape effortlessly across the steps of a mansion estate, exquisite and elaborate hairstyles are caressed by a gentle wind, and wide, open smiles speak to the comfort which Black instils in those she’s photographing.
Black has received several awards for her photography, including Lincoln’s Choice in 2018, a local superstar! “My goal is to tell the story of your entire wedding day,” she explains on her website. “All while keeping it fun!” Her approach is natural and unobtrusive, capturing the moments as they come, and producing a quality portfolio in and around Lincoln which captures the imagination and has us dreaming about the perfect wedding day.”
I thank Peerspace for the recognition. While I’m at it I thank Expertise for continually putting me at the top of their top photography lists.
Recognition is a good thing.
