Having Lora as our photographer was one of my favorite parts of our wedding! I had been following her work for years and was so excited to finally hire her when my big day came. Lora's work speaks for itself and I could leave it at that, but it's her energy and personality that really makes the experience so special. From our first meeting, I knew we would be in good hands. She was always SO positive and energetic, full of great ideas, but still listened to everything we said about how we imagined the day. On the actual day, she was such a light and positive force during a stressful morning. We were running late (as most brides are), but she was patient and still made sure we had time to get all the shots we wanted. She was firm but sweet in dealing with some overzealous family members who had their own ideas for us. She kept checking in with me all day and night to make sure we were in a good place and got everything we wanted in our photos. I truly felt that I could relax and enjoy the day because I knew we were in good hands! It goes without saying that our images were TO DIE FOR and the hardest part was just to narrow them down! Lora is not only an amazing photographer, but an amazing person all around and will become your best friend of the day! You can't go wrong having her on your team. Thank you again Lora for being such a big part of creating the absolute best day of our lives

Lora is an awesome photographer. I am truly a fan of her work. She has unique eyes capturing authentic moments of people's expressions or gestures. Love the bright and warm colors that she uses. Love the portrait pictures she takes and the use of light to her advantage. Lora is very professional and responsive with follow-ups. She is very passionate and will go above and beyond when it comes to taking great shots. She helped us with our wedding day schedule and provided useful advice regarding the flow of the day. She and her second photographer did a great job on our wedding day. When I showed our pictures to family and friends, they all said the pictures looked great and some even asked for her contact info.

Lora did SUCH an incredible job with our wedding photos and we can't thank her enough. We are in awe at the pictures! She made us feel so comfortable and we had SO much fun just hanging out with her all day (and Cardi B, who made our car ride between shots extra bumpin'). We so appreciate her going with the flow of our attempt at following a timeline (oops!) and the lengths she was willing to go to get the perfect shot. Lora, thank you a million times! You made our wedding so special. Thanks for being so awesome and so down with the camping spirit!

Lora will feel like so much more than a photographer at your wedding, she will become your friend. She genuinely cares about getting the best out of everyone she works with. She will get you to laugh, bring out your brightest smile and forget about any stress/anxiety you may have on your wedding day.
I was so impressed by Lora’s work that before even sitting down to meet her for the first time. I couldn’t wait to see her work for mine and my wife’s wedding day. She is easy to communicate with, she is thorough at coordinating what kind of photos the bride / groom want on their wedding day and makes it happen.
If I can give anyone reading this review any advice it is to stop looking and hire Lora. Look at her work, it speaks for itself. Your wedding photos last a lifetime, don’t take any short cuts. She has a personality that lights up the sky and is simply an amazing individual, can’t recommend her enough.

Lora is amazing!! We hired her to do photography for our wedding at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ and we could not have been happier with our decision. She is also doing the wedding photography for my sister's wedding in Philadelphia in a few months, and I know she'll do a fabulous job then as well!
Lora is extremely professional and easy to work with, plus she made our entire wedding photography experience a ton of fun. She has so much positive energy and spent the whole time making sure we got the best possible photos. Based on our wedding location and the size of our wedding party she recommended that we get a photography package that included another photographer besides her, but she was never pushy about this and allowed us to make our own decision. We did end up asking her to bring a second photographer with her, and this turned out to be the right choice. Our second photographer was also fantastic and he and Lora worked really well together.
Lora was very responsive to emails and phone calls before and after the big day, answered all our questions quickly, and worked with us to make sure our wedding photography package was perfect for our needs. We would 100% recommend Lora to anyone looking for an incredible wedding photographer!

Lora Lora Lora!
The way you made me feel from the moment I contacted you has been nothing short of amazing! You have been extremely thoughtful, caring and uplifting. Your energy is through the roof and we absolutely love that about you! Thank you for your words of advice and encouragement you shared during and after our engagement shoot last year. It has been an honor to have you as our photographer and friend! You are an amazing person inside and out! Not only did you make our wedding day memorable with your amazing shots, but my guests absolutely loved you! You stayed active the entire time and everyone, including me, could tell you were having so much fun! Thank you so much Lora for everything! I cannot wait to work with you again or just hang out someday! Your assistant was also amazing! You ladies did an awesome job and most importantly, you looked great doing it! You both were nicknamed by our guests "fairies, flying squirrels, magicians and acrobats" for how quickly you got around! I absolutely loved it!! You my friend, have a gift that is not too often seen in this world today which is evident in all of your being! You will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you for always being you! :-)

The task of finding a photographer for your wedding is not easy (at least it wasn’t for my fiancé and myself). It can be very overwhelming to try and navigate through who has a reasonable price, what your actually getting for your money, what type of style you are looking for and whether or not you could spend your whole wedding day with this person! Once my fiancé and myself met Lora in person over coffee, we knew that we had to have her shoot our wedding day.
She was extremely responsive during the months leading up to our wedding and always made us feel like a priority. On our wedding day, her and her assistant were amazing to work with and they made the picture taking process light and fun! They had their creative ideas prepared and were able to get the poses and pictures they wanted on schedule which means the wedding party could enjoy the process and not be thinking “how much longer will this take?!” the entire time!
We have since received our final photos and her work truly blew us away. We have received so many compliments on our pictures from all our friends and family and I can’t recommend her enough! Lora is an extremely outgoing, creative, and inspired photographer who takes pride in her work and genuinely enjoys what she does and all of these qualities show in the photo’s she captures. The pictures she took on our wedding day truly told the story of our day, our love and our families and it is amazing to know we can go back and re-read that story through our photos for years and years to come.

Let me first say that I typically hate all pictures of myself. That makes it even more impressive to say that i completely LOVE the photos that Lora took at our wedding!
From the beginning, Lora was super responsive and fun to work with. We met with her twice prior to our wedding and already knew that we didn't have to worry about anything when it came to our photos. In fact, Lora even helped me with the timeline on our wedding day, and with prepping (e.g. makeup & hair advice) prior to our ceremony! Moreover, she has the best personality you could ask for for a wedding photographer - it was like we had another friend with us on our special day! She is laid back (important for nerves especially prior to a wedding), yet outgoing (interacting with our guests) and super fun (making sure to dance just a bit with the guests in between shots)!!!
But all of that aside, the photos really speak for themselves. We have a perfect mix of pictures of just my husband and I, photos with our family - both posed and spontaneous, and of the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception (and all of the guests). She scoped out some cool spots (cozy back streets, muraled walls, etc) prior to our wedding and so she knew right where to take us to get the most perfect shots. In fact, some of these shots are now among my favorite pictures ever taken of myself!!!
I would highly recommend Lora as a photographer, she was amazing at our wedding would be just as great for all other kinds of shoots/events.

Words cannot even begin to describe the many wonderful aspects of Lora Reehling - as a photographer and as a woman. As I sat down to write this, I chuckled, because it sounds like the start to a fairy tale. From the first time my eyes landed on some of Lora's photographs, I was in love. From the first time I talked to her, over the phone, I fell in love with her and knew, without a doubt in my mind, that she was the photographer for our wedding. Lora's personality of attention to detail and free spirit, mixes together to create not only beautiful pictures, but a sense of comfort for a couple wading through the emotions of wedding planning. She absolutely went above and beyond our every wish and dream for our engagement shoot and when we thought she went as far as she could go, she stretched even farther for our wedding day. Her creative, journalistic photography was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer. She created incredible traditional photos and added in her own zest to create beautiful modern photos, for the perfect blend. I could go on and on about this amazing woman and her amazing work, but I will complete this review by saying, you will never once question your decision to hire Lora and you will never once be disappointed in her performance and her work. I cannot wait to hire her again.

Lora is not only an amazing and talented photographer, she is much more. She becomes your friend, she whole heartedly wants to learn your story so that she can capture the love between you and your Hubby-to-Be. Lora's enthusiasm and energy and love of her job really makes it easy to relax and get into the photos, they will never look posed because she will do everything in her power to make you laugh or smile. Lora is easy to work with and extremely responsive, she not only asks for and takes your suggestions, she is full of her own to make your big day run smoothly. Personally, it rained on my big day, but I cannot express what a wonderful job Lora did to make that a non-issue. She is like a ninja with the camera, and is an expert when it comes to teaching you 'the jumping shot'. I would recommend Lora with no hesitation to anyone looking for not only a wonderful photographer, but a new friend!

One of the most personable, friendly, joyous person we've met. Lora LIVES to shoot weddings and it shows, it really shows in her pictures. She meshes with the energy of your wedding, blends in, keeps your day on point, and surprises you later with pictures that make you relive your wedding. I'm serious about that last point. Go with Lora, relive your wedding months, years after. Lora is the full package from start to finish - finish being whenever you're done ordering photos and albums from her long after the wedding. She is so much fun to work with. :D
Friends and family seeing our pictures: "You could not have asked for better pictures." "She made everyone so beautiful. I mean, I'm sure everyone was beautiful to begin with, but she made sure they were *always* beautiful in every single shot." "It's literally so adorable and definitely seems to catch your personalities!! beautiful s your pictures. You will have those forever.
