Travel :: Jamaica Inn//July 9, 2014


I can’t say enough good things about my recent trip to the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios. The resort is adorable, the people are utterly charming, and the food is calorie laden and delicious (everything it should be when you’re traveling!) Four days was not enough and I was sad to leave it all behind, but planning a return visit someday gives  me something to look forward to!01__MG_3632 02__MG_2956 03__MG_2979 04__MG_3006 05__MG_3027 06__MG_3503 07__MG_3541 08__MG_3471 09__MG_3104 10__MG_3765 11__MG_3232 12__MG_3277 14__MG_3625 15__MG_3688 16__MG_3702 17__MG_3760 18__MG_3789

Engagement :: Kendall + Matt//March 31, 2014

Kendall and Matt have such warm, fun personalities. It’s a good thing too, because it was (the Florida version of) freezing when we shot their engagement photos out in Daytona! Despite the cold and they wind they, and Kendall’s dog, Chance, were troopers and we had a blast! I can’t wait for their wedding this fall at Casa Feliz!daytona_engagement_photographer_01daytona_engagement_photographer_02daytona_engagement_photographer_03daytona_engagement_photographer_04daytona_engagement_photographer_05daytona_engagement_photographer_06daytona_engagement_photographer_07daytona_engagement_photographer_08daytona_engagement_photographer_09daytona_engagement_photographer_10

As always, it’s super exciting to see my work in print! If you ever make it to the UAE, be sure to visit Abu Dhabi and the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – it’s an experience not to be missed!


Refer a friend + get free stuff (because who doesn’t love free stuff?)//March 5, 2014

Between the holidays and Valentine’s Day, I’m willing to bet you know someone who just got engaged! That’s great news for them AND for you because I’m currently running a special referral promotion!


Refer a friend and if they book their wedding photography with Lori Barbely Photography, you will receive a complimentary portrait session.

The nitty-gritty fine print details that you really don’t want to read, but probably should:

  • Only valid on new wedding bookings
  • The wedding couple must provide your name as the source of referral at the time of booking (defined as: when they complete their contract and pay their retainer)
  • The Petite Collection is ineligible for this promotion
  • You will receive your complimentary session when the completed contract and retainer are received from the wedding couple
  • Complimentary session is a one-hour long photo shoot with Lori in the Orlando area and includes high-resolution digital files
  • Complimentary sessions must be used within six months and are non-transferable
  • Referral promotion expires December 31, 2014
  • Not redeemable for cash

If you have any questions, feel free to email me!

Engagement :: Rachelle + Tony//March 3, 2014

You know how the weather has been in Florida lately: 85 degrees one day, 30 degrees the next. Rain. So much rain. Very un-Florida-like for this time of year. The morning of Rachelle + Tony’s engagement session had me feeling, well, not so optimistic. It was gray and drizzly. But Mother Nature smiled down on us and by the time their early evening session rolled around, we had the most perfect day Central Florida has seen in a long time – a fact that was reinforced by all of Central Florida and their dogs who were strolling around Lake Eola while we did Rachelle and Tony’s engagement photos.
