Lori Shepler Photography


Lucy and Brian - Paramount Ranch, CA

I’m a professional photographer and have worked alongside Lori for many years. So I was familiar with her talent and easy-going, professional way of working. Her work has always been an inspiration.

When it came to selecting a photographer for my own wedding, Lori was an obvious choice on the strength of her work.

What I didn’t realize would come into play, was how important it would be to me to have a photographer at our wedding who was a nice, kind, warm person. Someone who would be calming if I was stressed, who we’d enjoy having at our wedding, and our families and friends would really like. Lori fit this bill too.

We loved having Lori & Shanna at the wedding, and they did an awesome job. The photos were beautiful, well edited, and delivered fast.

We will cherish the artistic photos and the memories for many years to come. Lori & Shanna were the one wedding planning decision we didn’t have to give a second thought to. They made it so easy! Would highly recommend them.

I'd like to preface this review by telling you that I had VERY high expectations for our photographer. This aspect of our wedding planning was #1 on my list.....When we hired Lori I told her what my vision was- I wanted our wedding to look and feel like a scene out of the Rat Pack days, and I wanted special authentic moments captured... Looking back through our photos we were in awe; the vibe and emotion in every photo was spectacular! She definitely captured that old Hollywood feel- and some! Not only was Lori fantastic, but her 2nd shooter, Shanna Gilfix was just as great! Together as a team they got some amazing shots of our party in action! To say we love our wedding photos would be an understatement. Lori & Shanna's eye for detail and ability to capture the most intimate and candid moments is extraordinary! I feel like our photos could be featured in any major magazine! My husband and I will cherish these special memories forever. Thank you for everything, ladies!! We will recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer for ANY event!!

Lori and Shanna are simply the best! We could not have made a better decision when we chose them as our wedding photographers. They are amazing to work with – punctual, patient, and professional. They both have a “creative eye” that will capture elements of your wedding that will take your breath away. Lori and Shanna are also a lot of fun. They blended in with my guests and were not afraid to get on the dance floor when needed or to interact with the guests to snap those special moments. The quality of their work speaks for itself when you see the photographs. We are overjoyed with our wedding album. I would highly recommend Lori and Shanna because they are artistic, fun, and professional. Rachelle and Brandon Garmon

Dominic & Devorah - Chateau Marmont, Los Angeles, CA

On a day that was better than perfect for Devorah and I, Lori and Shanna were truly, to use a wedding cliche and inside joke, the topping on the cake. Kind, smart, fun, and stealth, in their photographs Lori and Shanna captured our wedding at the Chateau Marmont with elegance and poise. We thank them, we adore them, and we cannot recommend them highly enough. Hell, we may just do it all over again soon so we can get them to take the photographs!

Diane and Luis - Long Beach, CA

Lori & Shanna, Thank you for all of your hard work and making us look good! I was complimented as my friends and family said you were very discreet as you blended into your surroundings. I would say it was your Ninja-like skills of not being seen but executing beautiful work that impressed me most.
You work as a great team and you helped keep me calm too : )

Melanie and Nick-Long Beach, CA

You two are truly amazing!! Each time we look at our photos it takes us back to those moments, those memories. We get to relive the biggest day of our lives over and over again because of you. Lori and Shanna, you both captured such beautiful, candid moments and we are so grateful. Throughout our whole planning process we never had to worry about photos because you made us feel so at ease. You were organized and professional. You listened to what we wanted and delivered so much more than we could have hoped for. Thank you so much for everything, we LOVE our wedding pictures!!!

Picture perfect!!

I have been on the sideline of Los Angeles Laker games with Lori Shepler for going on 28 years so it was only natural for me when looking for a photographer to shoot our wedding to ask Lori. There was some concern on our part, could a sports/news photographer know how to shoot a wedding? Lori had worked other weddings and I was eventually convinced she could do the job. It was one of the best decisions my wife Marta and I made. We gave Lori some direction of what we wanted and she took the ball and ran with it. Our wedding was captured beautifully in perpetuity thanks to Lori Shepler. She has my unqualified recommendation. Marta Vitti & Gary Vitti M.S., A.T.,C., P.E.S., C.E.S.

Joi and Nate - Long Beach, CA

Working with Lori was the best decision I could have made. She made our day so easy and made me feel so beautiful. Whenever she had a picture in mind and knew we were rushing she would very nicely ask if we could just stop and take a certain pose really quick and just reassured us that when we get them back we will be so happy, and she was right. Every time I show the pictures to someone they just go on and on about how beautiful they are. Lori really makes you feel like a model and knows what to do to make your pictures the most memorable. She really captures the feel of every moment. Everyone also talks about how they never saw her anywhere yet she caught everything. She really takes her job seriously. I HIGHLY recommend Lori Shepler if you want a very down to earth, sweet, hard working photographer to capture your dream day and create life long memories for you.

Cerise and Jim - Newport Beach, CA

We were so impressed with how organized and professional Lori and Shanna were..in addition both ladies were flexible with our wishes. We had a custom package that was all our own on our special day.

Every time someone visits our home we receive numerous complements on our wedding pictures... Safe to say we are very happy we chose Lori + Shanna to photograph our day!

Crystal and Michael - Manhattan Beach, CA

When we were looking for someone to photograph our wedding, we wanted someone to catch the essence of the entire day, and that's exactly what we got. From getting dressed before the ceremony to the last dance at the reception, our photos display all the emotions of the day. Emotions that we still cherish today.

Karla and Matt - Los Angeles,Ca

They were great to work with and made everyone feel incredibly comfortable! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Krystle and Sandy - Long Beach, Ca

Lori and Shanna are a great photography team. We give them 5 stars. They captured moments in unique ways that turned our wedding photos into art. They are punctual, prepared, easy to get a hold of, and fun. They were definitely a pleasure to work with.

Araceli and Jason - Temecula, CA

Lori & Shanna are awesome photographers. We never had any doubt that they would capture all the best moments. I have used them in the past for other occasions and when it came to our special day we knew it had to be them :) They are very professional, easy to work with, very punctual and their turn around time on getting the images to you is amazing. We will continue to use them in the future. THEY ROCK!! Jason & Araceli Wagers

Patty and Mickey - Orange, Ca

My husband and I got married 5 years ago and used Lori as our photographer. Lori is wonderful to work with, easy going, nice and professional. Her pictures are amazing. You won't be sorry if you use her.

Chrissy and Tommy - Temecula, Ca

Lori catches the true moments. She is an authentic artist. She did not do a lot of posing, but instead let us dictate the pictures we really wanted. The candid shots were my favorite. We were on a budget and she worked with us to get what we needed. The pictures came out great and it is a joy to look back at my album and remember our special day.
