I'm a family and wedding photographer based in Maidstone, Kent.
I specialise in documenting heartfelt imagery that's both fun to capture and creates memories that will last a lifetime.

I go by she/her pronouns. I'm a Hufflepuff! Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons. Christmas is my absolute favourite holiday. I've been Vegan since May 2019. You've Got Mail is my favourite movie. I live in baggy jumpers and fluffy socks. I am obsessed with Pumpkin Spice Lattes! I have Nanny'd 6 children. Musical Theatre is my second love after photography (I'm a performer at heart). I have two Cats called Merlin & Wilbur. My Fiancé and I have been together since 2011! Aristocats, Mary Poppins and Sleeping Beauty are my all-time-favourite Disney movies. In August of 2023 I became a Mama!

Oh, hey there!
I'm Lori.

Love can’t be cancelled

Hina and Nikhil should have been celebrating their wedding nuptials in sunny Barcelona! But, like many couples due to be married this year, COVID-19 had other plans in store.

We’ve all had to find ways of adapting to this year, in one way or another. And this being my first wedding since Lockdown struck, was unlike any wedding I have shot before! But my goodness was it beautiful all the same.

So whilst the main event has been put on hold with all hope and intention that they will celebrate (as should have been intended) just a little later than originally planned, this lovely couple chose to embrace the chaos and tie the knot with a smaller celebration much closer to home.

There were no Bridesmaids, no fancy decorations, no car, just two people wholeheartedly in love!

I wouldn’t be present during the ceremony at Wandsworth Registry (due to limited numbers and the couple’s choosing), and we knew there would be very little time allowed to us for photographs upon their exit from the building.

So we flipped the traditional wedding day photography schedule on its head and made our own rules! 

I arrived in Notting Hill one hour prior to the ceremony, where Hina and Nikhil were blissfully getting ready together and helping each other with the finishing touches.
We then took a walk through their private, communal garden to capture the most stunning couples portraits before masking up for the taxi ride across London to Wandsworth Registry Office.

I may have only been given two hours to capture Hina and Nikhils wedding, but I think the photos speak volumes for just how much fun we had!

The majority of the world’s population now carries a camera around in their pocket every single day. And yet whilst today’s technology allows us all to be photographers in some way, we have come to take this accessibility for granted and what’s often missing is the memory and experience behind the 100+ mobile phone snaps.

I don't believe photography is just about taking pretty pictures. Photography should tell a story, your story, in turn creating lifelong memories that you can hold in your hands and hang on your wall.
