She’s professional and has a beautiful studio with all the props, swaddles, and clothes you could want! We also have loved the outdoor photos we’ve taken with her.

Not Your Average Company

We spoke with Lori Cummings, the owner of Appear Photography, about her business’ impressive online reputation. This is what she says makes Appear Photography different from other photographers in the area:

“We have over 15 years of experience in the photography industry and this is our full-time profession. Our number one goal is for our clients to love their photos. We like to communicate with each client before their photo session to find out their preferences and the vision that they may have for their photo session. We are a husband and wife team with two sides to our business. We are both continually honing our skills to become better and better at what we do and each have our own niche in photography. Lynn’s side of the business focuses on weddings, events and corporate photography, while mine focuses on newborn, children, and family photography. We’re a full-service studio which means we not only shoot and edit photos, but we also offer professional finished products such as canvases and prints, high-end albums and other specialty printed items.”

Building Success By Putting The Client First

Lori and Lynn believe wholeheartedly that their job is all about making the client happy. That has helped them earn their phenomenal reputation, both online and off.

So, what’s Lori’s advice to other business owners who want to build up a phenomenal online reputation? “When clients are happy, they want to share their experience with others. It’s also ok to ask clients to give you a quick review online. Running contests or promotions every now and then is a good way to gain attention on social media. Most of all, if you focus on doing your absolute best at everything you do, people will notice your quality of work and attention to detail.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Lori! Congratulations to the team at Appear Photography for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!
