  • A beautiful photograph is a key that unlocks a moment.

    Lori Paladino is an award-winning wedding & portrait photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area, focused on real moments and emotionally inspired imagery. Small weddings, big weddings, proposals, elopements, classic weddings, DIY weddings, same sex weddings, vintage weddings, modern weddings... as long as the key ingredient is love, Lori would love to capture it!

    Lori is based in the gorgeous Napa Valley, and her weddings & lifestyle portrait sessions regularly take her all over Northern California and welcomes destination weddings and portrait commissions across the globe.

    Recent News: For the 3rd year running, Lori was selected for The Knot's Best of Weddings!

When I arrived at Krista & Nick’s flat to photograph Krista getting ready, my jaw nearly hit the floor.  They have 3 huge north facing windows that overlook the San Francisco Bay.  It was incredible.  So it made complete sense that they would plan their wedding in a way that honored the view that greets them each day; with portraits at some of their favorite locations along the Bay, and their ceremony and reception at the St. Francis Yacht Club, with touches of nautical elements throughout.  It was a beautiful day.  A perfect match for the beautiful love these two share.

Here are just a few favorites from the day, or check out their slideshow for more!

    Ray Lein - Dear Krista & Nick,
    that spot on the San Francisco Bay will never be the same again. Wonderful photos documenting a very special occasion. Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of it. Just around the corner, almost 100 years ago today, my wife and I went on our first date.

    AA,
    Ray

Oooooh, I’m so excited for Sarah & Alex’s wedding this September at the Hamlin Mansion in San Francisco!!  We had so much fun during their engagement session, and I know their wedding day will be amazing!!  We met at Stag’s Leap (their favorite winery), and then I took them to some favorite spots in the surrounding area!  I loved watching these two interact; they have so much fun together and their chemistry is so well matched and easy-going.  It’s easy to see how much they enjoy spending time together, and it made it so much fun to be around them and to capture their sweet love!

Here are just a few favorites from their session, or check out their slideshow for more!

I was thrilled when one of my sweet clients invited me to capture Lally & Doug’s engagement party as a surprise gift to this lovely couple!   The party at Cafe Des Amis in San Francisco was great fun, full of close family and friends and the wonderful atmosphere at Des Amis.  I loved capturing all the many smiles that surrounded these two, along with their test run on cake cutting and their lovely toasts.  It’s clear their wedding day will be a wonderful celebration!

Thank you Kelsey & David for inviting me to capture this sweet event!!!

Oh. My.  Goodness.  This is a warning: little Olivia will melt your heart & put a huge smile on your face!!!

I laugh out loud every single time I look at these photos, and since I’ve been looking at them every day for several days while working on the full edit, that’s some staying power!  This was actually our 3rd photo session together; one for her newborn session, one for a holiday mini session and now her 9 month session.  We had so much fun crawling all around, and she was cracking me up!  This little beauty has a million different expressions, all of them heartwarming!  And I loved the moments with Olivia and Mom.  So sweet!

Here are just a few favorites, or check out her slideshow for more!

L Family, thank you for inviting me back to capture your sweet girl and such sweet love in your family!  So much fun!
