people say the nicest things...

"Lori is an extremely talented photographer. Her skills are unbelievable - only to be matched by her incredibly awesome personality. She made us feel confident and comfortable from the getgo, while helping us understand what it means to "stay connected" in photos. Lori is easy to get ahold of and communicate with, she helped my planner and I set the timeline for our wedding, and I could not be more thankful for the time we allotted for our pictures. They always say a picture is worth a thousand words, so if you want to know more, just look through her portfolio and be prepared to be blown away... 5 stars, if not more, for CaptureMeCandid Photography." -McKay via WeddingWire

I can't say it enough..Lori was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Great to communicate with and so personable! Our pictures are stunning! Her talent and love for her work really shines through. She captured such special moments during our special day that we would otherwise not have the chance to see. Our family & friends could not stop talking about how 'amazing our photographer' was (and this was BEFORE they saw the pictures!!). Hands down the best vendor we worked with!! I would recommend to her anyone! :)

"Lori is truly an incredible photographer. My now husband and I were very interested in several photographers after we got engaged, but Lori was the first that we met with. We were honest with her about upcoming meetings with other photographers and she was very professional about it. My husband and I felt that we "hit it off" with Lori from the beginning and that couldn't be more true. She made us feel so comfortable and like we were friends which we loved. Needless to say we ended up booking her for our wedding. Our engagement session with her was awesome. She captured our vision and more. She even let us incorporate our dog which was very important to us. It was awesome to see the light bulbs going off in her head while we were taking pictures regarding the light and other ideas that she came up with. We exchanged several emails with her and she was very prompt to respond and always answered all of our questions. She came up with a timeline for our wedding and we met with her after to discuss it in detail (which she didn't have to do and most photographers won't do). We have a large family due to divorce on one side and were requesting a lot of family pictures. She had no problem getting them done efficiently on the wedding day which we so appreciated. We really felt a connection with Lori and can't say enough good things about her. We have never questioned our decision about booking her and have been pleased with our whole experience. We are anxiously waiting to get our wedding pictures back now but have no doubts that they will be nothing short of amazing. I would recommend Lori to any and everyone! You won't regret it!" -Brittany via TheKnot

"Our experience with Lori was amazing! She has an awesome vision and great energy. She totally understood what we were going for and our entire wedding party and family loved working with her. Her pricing was fair and she went above and beyond - she even delivered 150 more pics than what we contracted because she said they were too beautiful for us not to have them. Not to mention her pictures were AMAZING, we absolutely love her work and will definitely be calling her when it's time for baby portraits :)" -via TheKnot

"I can't begin to put into words how thankful I am to have hired such a phenomenal wedding photographer!!! I have never been so happy to work with someone in such an important time in my life. Not only is her work flawless and perfectly edited but her imagination and creativity is out of this world! I would recommend Lori/Capture Me Candid to anyone for ANY event. Our engagement and wedding pictures are so beautiful, I can't thank her enough. Lori is so passionate about what she does and it truly shows in all of her gorgeous work." Caroline via WeddingWire

"Oh my God!!!!! My jaw literally DROPPED when I looked through the photos!!!! Seriously, Lori. Holy smokes! These are gorgeous works of art! Each image is STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!! I'm blown away!! I cannot wait to hear what Melinda & Scott say!!!! I cannot wait to see the whole gallery! I'm obsessed!!! Thank you x's a million for everything!!!!!!!!! Ok, ok I could go on for days about how much I love these photos!! And I can't thank you enough!!!!!!!! You're AMAZING!!!! And your talent is CRAZY INSANE!!!! Love love love love love!!!!!!!!!!!!" -Ashley, wedding planner with The Graceful Host via email

"Our day was absolutely perfect, in a billion debeaucherous ways, and we were constantly having a blast knowing that we had you to capture our memories. Your leadership and talent were so crucial during our wedding and I absolutely cannot thank you enough for keeping us smiling, wrangled, and IN THE MOMENT! We can't wait to see some pics, grab beers and catch up soon. In the meantime, please know that we love you to pieces and sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts - our day would not have been this awesome without you!" -Rachel via email

"If you have already found Lori and seen her work then you already know how amazing she is! Lori with CaptureMeCandid very quickly became our favorite person to work with during our wedding. I myself had basically been following her work for months before we actually met, but once we did, we immediately felt comfortable and very confident that she was the one for us. She’s awesome at taking the time over a few beers to share stories and get to really know her couples. It’s just as important to her that her couples find the best fit and she invests in their lives and their investment with her. By the end of our first meeting, we had no concerns and knew we were in great hands. Lori is an amazing and accomplished photographer who quickly became an equally amazing friend. My husband and I would recommend her to anyone as she truly sees the very best in her clients and brings that out in her images. She is so much fun to work with and really made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Her passion, creativity, and her relationships with her clients are so evident in those that have worked with her and the amazing photos she has taken. We could not be happier with our engagement and wedding photos. I mean really, just take a look at her work because you will be BLOWN away! She spends so much time to make sure her clients are treated right and that means going to great lengths, or even heights, or tons of coffee and late nights to ensure you get the very best experience and get the very best images! We have already started a Lori fund for when we have little ones and we are so excited for her to continue to be in our lives and capture our growing family. Not only did we walk away with wonderful memories from our engagement/wedding day, but we walked away with a great friendship as well! She will be included in our lives for a long time and we are grateful to have her!" -Whitney via WeddingWire

"I cannot say enough great things about Lori. When I got engaged, photography was first on my mind as this is the only lasting memory a couple has of their wedding day. A professional photographer is more than just someone with a fancy camera so cutting corners on this was out of the question. Lori met with us several times to get to know us as a couple and what we envisioned for our engagement, bridal portraits and wedding images. After our first meeting, I felt as if we had known her for years. Her outgoing personality and smile were (and still are) contagious! I envisioned a contemporary and elegant look and needless to say, she NAILED it every.single.time. We have had so many compliments on our engagement photos and my bridal portraits. We can't wait to see our wedding photos! She made every photo shoot effortless and her communication was on point. I never had to wait longer than 24 hours to get a response to any questions or ideas I had. She prepared a timeline for our wedding day including a list of specific shots I wanted and the entire day flowed smoothly thanks to her Type-A personality which was amazing for this OCD bride! Her work is extraordinary and magazine material. She has a keen eye for detail, lighting and lines. I always felt as though I was top priority during my engagement and up until the wedding. I HIGHLY recommend Lori for any photography needs and guarantee you will NOT be disappointed. " -Abby via Wedding Wire

"Lori is always a pleasure to work with. I had the opportunity to work with her on three occasions during the planning of our wedding in 2014 for engagement, bridal, and wedding photos. All three times ran seamless, on time, and she tells you exactly what look to have during the shot, even though i personally feel she best at capturing the cutest candid moments unplanned which make for wonderful memories. She also came to me well advance to ask for what type of shots i was looking for, which reassured me we would capture our vision for our photos. Her team is very professional, always willing to help with anything, and truly make things run smoothly. Anyone planning a wedding or photo shoot in general can appreciate a photographer that is easy to work with, and Lori is definitely that. " -Marissa via WeddingWire

"I am over the moon in love with my wedding photographer (also engagement and one day maternity and newborn and family and so on). I loved Lori from the moment I met her and enjoyed every meeting with her. My engagement pictures were rescheduled several times due to weather, not a problem for us since they turned out incredible. We worked together on a wedding day timeline (this was a must for this Type-A bride) and she helped me stay on schedule the entire day. Her team was also incredibly professional and fun to work with. My groom and I felt comfortable in front of her camera and became extra excited when we heard Lori look at her camera and say "You're going to love that shot! My wedding was only 8 days ago and we've had one picture released to social media.....58 comments and numerous texts later, my guests are in love and dying to see more. Her work is incredible and she has the best eye. I am so thankful that I trusted Lori with my wedding day and I cannot wait to work with her on future family pictures." -Whitney via WeddingWire

"Our experience with Lori was amazing! She has an awesome vision and great energy. She totally understood what we were going for and our entire wedding party and family loved working with her. Not to mention her pictures were AMAZING, we absolutely love her work and will definitely be calling her when it's time for baby portraits :)" -Niki via WeddingWire

"Lori not only was the most amazing photographer she delivered exactly what I wanted. I shopped around for the best photographer that for my needs and once I found her I knew she was "the one!". We both had a vision, we were on the same page throughout my entire 18month engagement and the pictures she captured say it all. I was a bride that knew exactly what I wanted and I put all of my faith in her! Couldn't be happier, she's amazing and so talented!!!!" -via

"Do yourself a favor and stop searching... HIRE LORI!! She was an amazing photographer who worked hard to capture every detail and memory of that day. She is kind, understanding, trustworthy, and overall fun person. I am so happy with our decision to hire her and the amazing photos we got as a result." -Kaitlin via

"We have used Lori for children and family photos for the past 3 years and we love her work. She has really captured the essence of my kids at those times. She is wonderful with the children and is able to direct both adults and kids very well and in an efficient manner. I'm always amazed with what is produced in the short time she is with us. We've had many professional pictures taken over the years but I have to say she is the first photographic artist we've used. Obviously, I highly recommend Capture Me Candid!" Laura via Yahoo! local

"If you are looking for a wonderful, experienced, kind-hearted, professional yet fun, TALENTED photographer..... Capture Me Candid is your best choice! I was lucky enough to have Lori shoot not only my engagement pictures but my wedding in September! From our very first meeting I knew instantly she would be the photographer I would pick. It was like I had known her forever! Through out that whole year we were in contact... whether it be by phone, e-mail or starbucks dates! She was always there for me and I couldn t imagine having used anyone else to capture my big day! Not only is she an amazing person inside and out but she is also one of the most talented photographers I have ever come in contact with! Her ability to capture the moment is unbelievable and left my family and I speechless when we received my wedding pictures back! Bottom line... she s awesome! You will definitely not be disappointed! Thank you Lori for all your hard work and dedication! And most of all thank you for not ever making me feel like I was just another business transaction.... but a friend!" Erica via Yahoo! local

"Lori recently took our newborns photos. She was wonderful and patient with our daughter. She brings a wide variety of props, including fabrics for backdrops, headbands, and other items. She also used a couple of our items we wanted in photographs. The pictures turned out wonderful and I would definitely use her again in the future as well as recommend her. " Faith via Yahoo! local

"You are awesome. We are sooo happy with these shots and cant express how much we love them. My wife was on cloud 9 last night when we got to see them. Thank you." -Jay via facebook message

"Lori, the owner and main photographer for CaptureMeCandid Photography absolutely loves what she does, which portrays in the work she does. She has an eye for unique, intimate, and casual photos. She worked with us every step of the way and made us feel at ease for our big day. She goes above and beyond to make you feel at ease. She engages you throughout the process to ensure that when the day arrives, there are no surprises and minimal concerns. She had an additional two photographers there to be sure she captured every moment. I would use Lori for our future family pictures or any other picture needs! We can t say enough about Lori and her team!!" -Chris via yahoo! local

"This is an awesome team! I couldn't have been blessed with anyone better! Lori; my photographer is uncomparabe to anyone else! Katie made all of us ladies glow like never before! These ladies truly are blessed with an fabulous talent! Love Yall!" -Kristina via

"Oh my goodness. My bridal portraits are amazing!!!! I can't express in words how glad I am that I chose you to document and capture my life from engagement to wedding day. I can't wait till June 9th!!!" -Megan via facebook

"Lori is absolutely AMAZING! She did our engagement pictures and will be doing my bridal portraits and our wedding pictures as well! Taking pictures with her is so easy and fun! She knows the exact pictures to take that are your style and how to make you smile/laugh/be serious/be comfortable....she can do it all! I would recommend her to ANYONE and EVERYONE! All of my friends keep complimenting her pictures, even they think she did an awesome job. And to quote one of the compliments... your engagement pictures are absolutely amazing!! ...they re the best I ve ever seen! I honestly believe I could not have found a better photographer! Thanks Lori!" -Elizabeth via Yahoo! local

"Lori was our photographer for our engagement pictures and wedding day and we plan to book her for future family photos! Lori is an absolutely wonderful photographer and here’s why... She’s extremely professional, nice, and genuine. Most importantly, she truly cares about her clients and wants to get to know them to capture personalities. The detail and quality of her work is impeccable! For our engagement photos, she had envisioned shots to capture our hobbies and relationship with one another. She had a plan and took us to various locations for our shoot. The final product is just amazing and it’s hard to pick our favorite one. On our wedding day, she was snapping away with every sweet moment to be captured. I have to say that just looking at the photos brought on a flood of memories from our wedding day. Nothing means more to me than seeing my family enjoy each other s company, and there was definitely a lot of that going on that day. The images she captured of just the two of us are the best we’ve ever had taken. She managed the posed shots in a timely manner to keep everyone one schedule. We have had numerous compliments from our friends and family. Lori, you have given us the best gift we could ever receive! " -Joanna S. via Yahoo! local

"Lori Robertella Konawalik with CaptureMeCandid Photography, Im so freaking in love with your work!!

Thank You for being such wonderful person and photographer!! ?" -Kristina B via facebook post

"You won't find anyone more fun and enjoyable to work with than Lori. She has an amazing personality and eye for all things creative. You can see the incredible work she does at her web site. Combine that with her fantastic work ethic, honesty, and just being a great person to work with, you can't go wrong..." -submitted via Yelp! from Brian M.

"Oh my goodness. Absolutely beautiful. I am soooooooooooooo excited and pleased. I have already shown everyone. I don’t have any additional words that could express. You are absolutely the BEST!!! Can’t wait to order.Love it! Love it! Thanks for your wonderful personality. My son has already told everyone about you…Thanks again for the great experience." -LaTonya via email

"Lori is wonderful! I had a great photo session with her a few weeks ago. It was a great experience because she made it fun. She has a way of making her subjects feel comfortable and relaxed. She is very creative and thoughtful in bringing out the best in the people she photographs. I was delighted to share my pictures with my family and friends. I now consider Lori a good friend and would highly recommend her. Thank you!!" -Stephen via facebook

"We found Lori when we were looking for a photographer for our wedding. I met her, and knew instantly that she was a hard worker and willing to do anything to make us happy with our wedding photos. Since meeting her, I have recommended her to many people that have also been pleased. She does amazing work and is SO MUCH FUN! She also is there at any request and is so easy to get in contact with. If... you have a question, you can send her a quick text, email or contact her by facebook. Not only was she THE BEST photographer we could have ever found for our wedding, she has become a friend and we thoroughly enjoyed her being at our wedding. I am still getting compliments on our engagement pictures, bridal portraits and wedding pictures....thank you Lori for will be our photographer for any big occasion we go through :)" -Lizzie and Wyatt Tucker via facebook reviews

" Lori's work was nothing short of incredible. I threw her a curve ball by working with a professional saxophonist, not her run of the mill client. But she did upfront research to use new techniques, talked to me about the exact look I was going for, then worked with me to find ideal locations to fit that look. The shoot took a little longer than anticipated, but Lori really pushed thru to get all of the shots we were looking for. Great value for the price, you can see the fruits at Highly recommend her, one of the best I've ever worked with." -Steve via facebook

"The album looks great! Thank you, we love it. Thank you for adding in the family pictures. We love looking at the other pictures, too!Thanks so much for doing another phenom job!" -Renee L via email

" Lori! I just looked at my Bridal photos for the 100th time that I received last night! You truly are blessed with an AMAZING gift of art! Thank you so much for capturing such wonderful pictures that only come once in a lifetime, I will cherish them forever!! We Can't wait to share them with everyone on Oct 22! Cant wait for you to do the wedding!!! You are Fabulous!" -Kristina G via facebook

" I cant say enough about Lori and her wonderful skills! She did an AMAZING job on our engagement pictures. She has a true talent and captured our love in the most beautiful form. Not only did our pictures turn out amazing, but the session was a blast! So laid back and comfortable.....she even put up with our hyper puppy. She was all smiles. I would recommended her to anyone. The only thing I wish I could change is that she can come up to MI to take our wedding pictures!" -Katie via facebook reviews

"After searching for a photographer in the Charlotte market, it was clear to me, based on Lori's portfolio of work, that SHE was the ONE to take the photos that would commemorate my son's 1st year. She captured the essence of him perfectly. She is truly family oriented and is a pleasure to work with. I can't wait for her to take our future family photos." -Jeni via facebook reviews

"Thank you Lori! We love when you take our pictures! You rock!! You have an amazing talent and remarkable patience :)" -Kerrey via blog post comment

"Oh my gosh! Love them!! You are so sweet and we enjoyed you being here! Thanks for all of the sweet messages, we look forward to having you back. (The gallery) made me tear up! I love the solo ones of her, great job!" -Jennifer via email

"Lori is the BEST photographer I have EVER worked with. Lori captured my son, a high school track star, and TOTALLY made him look like an Olympic runner and a traditional high school senior. She captured him like no other professional photographer has ever been able to do. She literally laughed and had fun during the entire photo shoot. My cousin looked at Lori's blog the day after my son's phot shoot and said the pictures gave him the "chills". He saw a boy growing into a man. The photos were so great that I literally showed anyone who would take the time to view the photos at work. My son never shows his photos and showed everyone at his school. His coach could not believe how he was captured. LORI is GREAT!!!! You have to use her for your photos." -review via Yahoo! local

"Lori is a very talented photographer. She is able to capture beautiful moments even with a 2 and 4 year old. Lori made my whole family feel comfortable, and we found the session to be fun! Her prices are fantastic, and her pictures speak for themselves. Lori donates money to the Smile Train Foundation for each session. Generous and thoughtful." -Jill via Yahoo! local

"I feel like we have met a lasting friend that can capture our photo moments. No one could have brought Brandon out like you did. He is very private and typically doesn’t do well with photos. But, you let him be himself. Thanks again for the great service, the great photos, the SUPER timely service, and most of all your personalityand friendly smile. You are TOTALLY in the right profession. I have told so many people about you. I hope that many of my friends will be able to experience what Brandon and I had a BUNCH of fun experiencing. Thanks again for everything. I will definitely be ordering soon. I have just asked the Grandma’s which pictures they want for their 8x10 or larger photos." -LaTonya via email

"Lori came to our daughter's second birthday. We had my parents in town and wanted to get some family pictures, too. She did an amazing job at capturing the moments and catching people in great lighting, not an easy thing to do. We are so thrilled by the phenomenal pictures she took. We communicated over the phone/internet prior to our event, so the party was the first time she was at our home. She oriented very quickly to our place. Lori has such an easy going personality that everyone felt relaxed and natural around her, making for great spontaneous pictures. All in all, I highly recommend her and will absolutely love to have her clicking pictures at our next family event!" -Renee S. via

"Lori is absolutely wonderful. We first had Lori come out to our house when our older daughter was 3 months old and since then Lori has captured many milestones including baptism and first birthday parties and our youngest daughter's very first pictures...Lori interacts with the kids by getting right down on the floor and in doing so is able to capture their real personalities. She also gives greatfeedback during the session - for example, one time an outfit was just not showing up well as she was shooting and we were able to change it to something better on the fly. Her pictures are not stiff and posed, but rather lasting images of funny faces, sweet smiles, and action (we have a favorite of our daughter being thrown up in the air). We've recommended her to all our neighbors and friends and will continue to do so." -Kate

"Lori, I know I left you a note on your blog on FB about their pictures but I had to send you a note personally to let you know they are so moving! You captured the spirit of their family and what he represents to our country through his children just so beautifully! I was in the Lowe's parking lot when I saw them post, so I had to pull them up and I was immediately moved to tears looking that them from my cell phone! You are AWESOME! Thanks so much for capturing these for them! So grateful you were able to!!! Thanks again!" -via email

"I highly recommend Lori for your family pictures! She is great to work with and was so good with my two little ones (age 4 and 20 months). Lori takes beautiful pictures and I am so so so happy with our pictures! I know that we will treasure the pictures for a lifetime and we hope to make this an annual tradition for our family for years to come." -Nicole C. via Yahoo! Local Reviews

"Lori did an excellent job with our family photos. It's so difficult to keep the attention of a 5 year old and a 1 year old for 2 hours. Lori did a great job at keeping the kids engaged and happy. She tried a variety of different shots with us outdoors - even pulling over to the side of the road when she thought it would make a perfect photo. She definitely went above and beyond my expectations. We are so grateful for what she's given us in these photos. It was our first time having "real" professional photos taken, and I can't express how happy I am that we finally did it and that Lori was our photographer. These pictures are an absolute treasure." -Kerrey K.

"What gorgeous photos! It was a challenge to pick our favorites... they were all so great! Lori is extremely skilled, and so easy to work with. She delivered the final pictures quickly, and she was able to capture our son's personality perfectly. We highly recommend her! We look forward to working with Lori again." -Marc and Cortney

"We got the disk yesterday and the pictures are fantastic. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are awesome. We love all of them that we will have a hard time deciding which ones to enlarge. I think we might do a selection of 5x7's for our parents instead of 8x10's. We love the black and white - I could go on and on. We will definitely be calling you again. Thanks again!" -Theresa A.

"Love love love Lori! She is great with my kids and gets the most wonderful pictures really getting their different personalities. I can't say enough wonderful things about what an amazing job she does and I will use her over and over! She is just awesome to work with- everyone should be so lucky to find someone this great to take photos of their family and beyond that she is just a wonderful person- can you beat that combo!?!?!" -Shawn W.

"Your pictures are truly amazing. Our friends and family have been blown away! Even RJ's aunt who is a photographer was VERY impressed!" -Erin via email

"Lori has been an absolute pleasure to work with and she displays real passion for her work. My husband and I have used a number of photographers in the past but Lori blew them all away. Her enthusiasm, creativity and patience are unmatched. We’ve just seen a sneak peek of our photos and cannot believe the quality of her work. Usually, we consider a shoot a success if we get few good shots and one or two real “keepers.” From what we've seen so far, we already know we have a number of photos that we will treasure for years to come." -Kelly P.

"We got our photos today and are totally blown away with them! Lori did a great job capturing special moments with our daughter. Her patience with our 3 year old and ideas for our family transfered into beautiful photos. I would highly recommend her to anyone. You can tell she truly enjoys her profession. Thanks again!" -Lisa K

Some of our engagement pictures are on her website already, and she just took our pictures this morning..:) She made it as painless as possible for my Fiance that does not like pictures (haha) Great job Lori!!! He enjoyed his time and loosened up at the end..:) I would highly recommend Lori to take your picture!" -Shelby G.

"LOVE LOVE LOVE Lori! She's such a happy and energetic person-- not to mention creative and extremely professional.

"Just looked at Cortney's pics - they made me cry :) In a good way of course :) They are awesome Lori!" -Kerrey K.

"I'm starting a new business in Charlotte. Our product is a microwavable baby blanket so we needed shots of not only the product but of infants and toddlers with the product. Lori was awesome! She made the session so much fun for the children and had them all smiling! The shots were “candid” just like her website states. She is the best photographer I’ve ever worked with, hands down!" -Linda W., Wamelala Owner

"Lori is an A+ in my books. Not only is Lori great at what she does but she has fun with what she's doing. She makes you feel comfortable and keeps a "fun environment" at all times while snapping excellent photos. Very prompt with getting pictures back to you and is very reasonable with her prices. I've passed the word on to others that are looking for photographers and guarantee you will too!!! A definite A!!!! Looking forward to our next set of family pictures with the fall leaves..." -Andrea and Travis

"I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the photos - they are all beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much for them.

Thanks again for going above and beyond for us - you created an experience that we will all cherish for a long time! " -Holly O.

"Awesome photography - Lori captured the personalities of my sons so well! She was very patient with my rambunctious 2-year old! I love her creative photo angles and choice of backgrounds for the ages of my boys! I have recommended her to everyone I know! Awesome photography at very reasonable rates! So glad I found CaptureMeCandid!" -Lisa B

“Lori has photographed my daughter twice now, and has done an amazing job, producing award-winning photographs for her modeling portfolio! We cannot thank her enough and recommend her without reservation! First class all the way!" -Cathy D.

"Oh my goodness, the photos are beautiful. I couldn't have imagined that they would have turned out so well. Here I was picking myself apart...and you made me look amazing. Wow!!! I'm going to buy the package and give to family and friends. My son said one of the pictures inspired him to pick up a book or go to the library. My daughter is excited about you doing our family pictures next year. Thank you rock!" -T. Williams

"Hey! The album is perfect!! There's just nothing ever negative to say about your work! :) Mom loved it and how the images are embedded into the page. We haven't had a chance to show maybe people yet but we have a lot of birthday parties this weekend so we will be showing it off to the family! Thanks!" -Kristina via email

"Lori is instantly a friend with skill behind a camera. She was great at collaborating about the photo shoot, showed up on time the day of the session and with a plan for the day, was fantastically patient with my little girl and worked with us until we had the photos we wanted. Lori had my photos beautiful and ready so promptly too- I live out of town and visit family in town, but I totally plan to coordinate with her in the future! She is fantastic!" -Maria via Yahoo! local

"Lori did my wedding August 28th and I could not have asked for a better photographer. She is professional and yet laid back which makes you feel comfortable. She even made my camera shy husband look like a model :) The photos look amazing and everything is done on time and as promised. She really loves her job and it is evident thru her work. It speaks for itself and I would highly recommend her." Jac Smith

"Lori is amazing!! She just did my engagement session and is my photographer for my June wedding as well. She is laid back and very easy to work with. She does an excellent job with capturing images that represent you. We love our pictures and can't wait to work with her this summer." Kaitlin and Jonathan

"Lori was an absolute joy to worth with and captured our day better than I could have imagined. Rolling with whatever weather or hiccups happened, she kept us focused on the moment and joyful. From our engagement session nerves being calmed within minutes, to the big day not even noticing she and her team were around, Lori is an artist who is a master of her craft. For years to come, our entire family will cherish her work and forever will be part of the great memories we have from our wedding! We love you Lori!!!" -Rachel, via WeddingWire

"I am the mother-of-the bride for the above wedding where we used Capture Me Candid. Lori was most awesome to work with. While I did not have as much interaction with her since we live in another city, every time I was with her she was professional, fun, and creative. I attended the photo shoot for my daughter's bridal portraits and even was in several of the pictures. The bridal portrait pictures as well as the wedding day pictures far exceeded any expectations. On the wedding day, Lori and her team worked a very long day. They were jovial, and kept things moving along in a fun way, easing any jitters there may have been. I would highly recommend Candid Me Candid Photography for the Charlotte area. We couldn't be more pleased!" -via WeddingWire

"Lori was fantastic from the beginning, and we feel lucky that we found her. Our first conversation was very professional: she was organized, sharing her experience and suggestions, while still being flexible. When we met in person, she showed her easy-going and laid back side. She does feel very strongly about a first-look, and we were very back and forth about doing one. She's right. Just listen to her. We did our first look in the church, to get those church doors opening moments, and it was fantastic! Highly recommend having some time with each other before starting the big day. Plus, this gives you more time for family/wedding party photos, to enjoy the cocktail hour, time with each other post-ceremony. Remember, she's right on this one! Plus, she gives you great piece of mind. Unfortunately she got sick the day of our wedding and couldn't be there. First time for everything! She provided two amazing photographers who took our photos that she then edited. They captured our day in Lori's style, and the entire substitution was seamless. If you want someone who is professional and fun, who will work to get you amazing/beautiful/breath taking photos, hire Lori." -via EventWire, Nancy and Kerry

"Lori is an AMAZING photographer. Not only does she take the best pictures, she is very personable and super easy to work with. She is very prompt in getting photos back. Her artistic ability is incredible, every picture has the best lighting and color. I would recommend her to everyone! Not only is she the best photographer around, she is now someone I can call a great friend!" -Amy via WeddingWire

"Lori was fantastic from the beginning of the wedding process to the very end! Not only are her pictures gorgeous, but she is a pleasure to work with! From the first meeting, I knew she was going to be the perfect photographer for our wedding! Being from out of town, Lori was flexible and worked with us on meetings and always responded to emails quickly! Lori made sure to capture all the pictures we requested as well as truly capture the experience/atmosphere of our wedding! I highly recommend Lori for anyone looking for a photographer for their upcoming wedding!" -Jessica via Wedding Wire
