I don’t know where to begin….Diane is the absolute best. My fiancée and I could not be more blessed to have her capture all the special moments of our wedding day. Besides being an overall fantastic person – Diane is a true professional. Our photos are beyond gorgeous and we re-live our special day every time we look at them. Thank you Diane

I cannot say enough good things about Diane and team! Diane operates with such energy and ease - she made our wedding day and engagement shoots seamless and fun. Diane can find beauty anywhere and came up with such great, creative ideas for our photos. She had us stand in front of a puddle (it sounds weird), and then showed us this incredible photo where my husband and I were reflected in the water... we were amazed and so excited! She was such a pleasure to work with and the photo results are incredible!

Once in a lifetime moments, captured forever
It's difficult to put into words the immense gratitude we have for Diane. As a gay male couple, we'd had some disappointing conversations, feeling like anything from just another job, to a portfolio novelty. When we found Diane, she made clear that her only point of view and priority was to capture the beauty and truth of our day.
Meeting Diane for the first time in Rhinebeck, she immediately put us at ease. We could brainstorm and discuss, but also felt comfortable leaving some decisions in her hands, and trusting that she would guide us in the right direction. Diane conveyed a respect for our day; we weren't just another client, she understood the importance of the moment we were asking her to capture for us. All of the preparation beforehand was guided, measured, and manageable, and one of the least stressful parts of planning our wedding.
The day of our wedding, Diane and her team were a dream. She guided us through the traditional shots she knew our families would want, but gave us freedom to capture moments that were unique to us. And during the wedding and reception, she was a photographic ninja! Almost invisible to our guests, but she captured the biggest and smallest moments. The moment during our dance when my mother said the most touching thing and I broke down, Diane captured it. The moment my husband and I arrived on the dance floor and the entire room erupted, Diane captured it. While everyone was dancing and my husband's parents were off to the side, admiring the family photos we'd put out, Diane captured it.
We now have a set of photos that aren't just posed portraits, but they truly tell the story of the most important day of our lives. We are eternally grateful to Diane, and couldn't recommend her highly enough.
Diane is such a wonderful person! Such a relaxed, calming personality! She puts a smile on everyone's face! I have had the honor of working with her this past year & I'm looking forward to many more!
It is always a pleasure to work with Diane from Hudson River Photographer. She has a unique style and vision that she brings to documenting a couple's big day. Highly recommended! -- DJ Bri
