His love of photography goes beyond just the everyday snapshot. It drives him to make your day a perfect and momentous occasion to remember. He takes every detail to an artistic level. Pictures are formally posed and spontaneous candids.

His mission is to help clients get what they want - a fabulous and affordable experience.

Lorn is dedicated to documenting the beauty and individuality of each client. He blends photojournalist and traditional styles of photography to create a unique collection of photographic memories.

He has an eye for capturing and creating images that captivate others. He works hard to make clients feel comfortable enough to let their guards down and be themselves in front of the camera - because that is when the best photographs are taken.

Lorn's photography combines technical proficiency, patience, intuition, and unique artistic sensibilities - whether it's a child's inquisitive expression or a bride's nervous anticipation. Lorn has been photographing clients full-time in Ohio and beyond since 1981.


" I had a great experience. I took my senior pictures with him and he also did my sister's senior pictures. I felt so comfortable! He's great at photoshop and made my pictures look great! Great experience overall! I would definitely recommend to all!!! "

" All I can say is that this man is AMAZING. My daughter wanted winter senior pictures. Mr. Spolter said that this was a first for him, that no one EVER wanted winter senior pictures, but he welcomed it. He took well over two hundred pictures and we had to whittle them down to 8. It was VERY, VERY difficult. They were ALL beautiful. He made my daughter feel very, very comfortable. He was more than willing to trudge up and down snow covered hills to get the the best locations for my daughter. When my daughter and I left, we both commented how glad we were that we came to him, not just because we loved the pictures, but because he is such a nice individual and listens to what the customer wants!!!

" Lorn Spolter Photography is wonderful and very professional. Our family has known Lorn for many years and he has always done our family photos for us. We love his location with so many different backround choices indoor and especially the outdoor ares. Lorn is very good at knowing how to position people for the best looking shots and uses great lighting too! Can't say enough great things about Lorn! "
