Lori and her partner were amazing from the moment we met. She Did our engagement photos that turned out amazing. She made us feel very comfortable considering me and my husband are pretty shy. I was very happy with them. As for the wedding day it was the best experience I've had with photographers (I've been a bridesmaid 4 times so I know). Lori was with us the bridal party and her partner was with the groom and his party. We got so many amazing shots. It was awesome having two photographers. We got different angles and literally every picture I wanted they made time for. She even printed up all the "Must have shots." Loved that because I would have probably forgotten a couple because the day was so crazy. Looking at the pics literally 9 after the wedding (really fast) was so fun for my friends and family and especially us. I would recommend them to all my friends and family and really anyone getting married. You will not be disappointed.

Lori is an amazing photographer and easy to work with. Her assistance Rich is just as, pleasant and easy going like Lori. My guests had a wonderful time with my photographers and enjoyed their company.

Do not hesitate to contact Lori she is laid back, fun, and flexible to work with.Her service is spectacular and knows what she is doing. Her and Rich's professionalism exceeded my expectations. I could not have been happier with my choice and would not consider another photographer or assistant.

There is a reason why Lori has 5 stars because she is the best of the best. And Rich her assistant is amazing, as well. Can't wait to see the pictures and enjoy beautiful memories of my day.

Lori was fantastic. She did our Engagement shoot in Baja and we were so happy, we couldn't wait for the wedding pix. She really did an amazing job. She's a lot of fun to work with and a great photographer. She responds via email faster than anyone I've ever met! Our photos were ready before we even got back from the honeymoon! She is amazing. You'll love her as much as we do!
Thanks Lori!!!

Lori was so much fun to work with! Our engagement session was in San Francisco which was our choice, but she's really up for anything and was open to any ideas, suggestions you had. If you weren't really sure (like I was), she also makes great recommendations for shots, poses, locations, etc. She even invited us to do our shoot in Baja where she goes to visit every winter if we wanted to!! I think what we fell in love w/ the most was her personality, a very happy person and so laid back. It was definitely a pleasure working with her. On the day of our wedding, we had her and her partner Rich. He's just as great, and very funny!! When we finally got our photos it was so hard to pick which ones were our favorites because every shot captured something different, and every shot was just so beautiful. If you're looking for a GREAT photographer, I would definitely recoommend Lori Makabe photography!!!

When planning a wedding, there are so many decisions to be made, and making these decisions can be stressful. Luckily for us, choosing our photographer was not one of these stressful decisions.

Lori Makabe (along with her assistant Rich) photographed our wedding last April at Oak Farm Vineyards in Lodi, CA. When we first met with Lori, we immediately connected with her personality. She was clearly very fun AND professional. Looking through her photo albums and spending some time asking questions sealed the deal - we wanted to work with her!

We coordinated all the group pictures we wanted beforehand and gave the list to Lori. When the day came, she was very patient with us as it was often difficult to get together different groups of people for pictures. This was just one example of her flexibility and willingness to work with us to ensure all our needs were met.

To call Lori and Rich amazing photographers would be a vast understatement. They are picture-taking machines (they stayed the ENTIRE DAY) with great attention to detail and an unmatched ability to capture authentic moments in beautiful clarity.

While we were very impressed with their stamina to stick out the entire wedding day taking pictures, the real test came when all the pictures were developed and ready for us. We were once again AMAZED at the quality. An example of this is the sunset pictures we took in front of the vineyard. We were wondering at the time if the images would capture the beauty of the moment. Sure enough, Lori and Rich nailed it - the mood, the coloring, it was all PERFECT!

If you are in the central valley and looking for a photographer for engagement, wedding, or any other professional pictures, we HIGHLY recommend Lori Makabe. You will NOT be disappointed!
