Lori Prashker-Thomas

Humanist Celebrant & Ordained Officiant

I have always been a creative soul and a free spirit. When I met my husband, Michael, I picked up a camera and was hooked. I have been a professional photographer & Co-Owner of 
ShadowCatcher Photography, LLC ever since.

Because of my love of photographing weddings, I always wanted to become more involved in the wedding ceremony itself. I wanted to incorporate more of what I love…writing. That’s when I decided that it was time to become a wedding officiant so that I could write beautiful ceremonies for other couples.

I initially became ordained in 2011 with the Universal Life Church Ministry and continued my education to become an ordained Rabbi in June 2013 with American Marriage Ministries and I am always continuing my education.   

In February 2024, I received my CPWO,  Certified Professional Wedding Officiant (CPWO) through The International  Association of Wedding Officiants (IAPWO).  I recently received my Wedding and Event Planner and Designer Certification through the Wedding MBA – Wedding Merchant Business Academy.  I am a Paralegal at Lehman Law, PC, author of “From Mistakes To Miracles, and a motivational/inspirational  speaker.

I always tell my marriers that “I am a one-stop-shop…Officiant, Photographer, Writer, Planner, Hair & Makeup Squad & so much more!!!
