OWNER & OFFICIANT
Lori has always been a creative soul and a free spirit. Once she met her husband, Michael, she picked up a camera and was hooked. She has been a professional photographer & Co-Owner of
ShadowCatcher Photography, LLC ever since.
Because she loved photographing weddings, she always wanted to become more involved in the wedding ceremony itself. She wanted to incorporate more of what she loves...writing. That's when she decided that it was time to become a wedding officiant so that she could write beautiful ceremonies for other couples.
Lori originally became ordained in 2011 with the Universal Life Church Ministry and continued her education to become an ordained "Rabbi" in June 2013 with the American Marriage Ministries. She is also a Certificated Wedding Officiant through the Wedding Merchant Business Academy. She always tells her couples that "I am a one-stop-shop...Officiant, Photographer, Hair & Makeup Squad & much more!!!"
