"I WILL HAVE POETRY IN MY LIFE. AND ADVENTURE. AND LOVE. ABOVE ALL, LOVE."
~ Shakespeare in Love
My weddings may be small, large, peculiar, extravagant, simple, traditional, modern, gay, straight - what they all have in common is the desire to have artful photographs that feel authentic.
Let's find the real moments, the beauty in small things.
I've been telling stories my whole life as a designer, writer and filmmaker. I bring this background and a decade's worth of wedding photography experience to each of my couples. Your unique story is what motivates me to create artful, breathtaking, meaningful images.
I am a modern documentary photographer. Let me tell your story.
Wedding stories start at $5,000 which includes full day coverage.
I moved from Brooklyn to the beautiful Hudson Valley with my wife and two dogs on 3 acres in Rhinebeck, NY. I photograph unique weddings in the Hudson Valley, Catskills, New York City and beyond.

Diane was great both in terms of the photos we got and her general vibe/approach. Definitely helped us to relax knowing that she was all over the details. Total pro. Thanks!Sent on 11/17/2019

If a picture is worth a 1000 words, than we have 1 million wonderful words from our wedding, thanks to Diane! We had such a terrific experience working with Diane from the very beginning. While we didn’t do an engagement shoot to “practice” for the big day, Diane spoke with us multiple times on the phone to get to know us better and to answer all of our questions - we felt so confident and comfortable that she would be the perfect fit for us. We found Diane through the recommendation of The Garrison, and through friends whose photos of hers we saw and loved - this made her an easy choice. Diane and her assistant for our wedding, John, knew exactly how to handle our bridal party and families, and were great at giving us all direction in order to get the perfect shots. We were so thrilled to see our highlight slideshow and even more overwhelmed by the incredible online album we received with the whole day’s images. Each and every photo was edited to perfection, and so creative. We’re looking forward to picking out our shots for the final album - but we know it will be so hard to narrow down to our favorites! Thanks again for an awesome experience.Sent on 11/04/2019

Simply the best
Diane did an AMAZING job photographing our wedding. She was able to capture the love and energy we felt the night of our wedding in every single picture. Diane’s kind and easy nature made photographing the day simple. When going through the photographs, my husband and I had difficulty selecting our favorites for the album because they were all so incredible. Diane seamlessly blended into the crowd at our wedding and by doing so she was able to capture the most incredible moments. The preview video she then creates with the photos brought us to tears! We have watched it over and over and over again! Her work is incredible! We also were lucky enough to use Diane for our engagement photos. She met us and instantly chose the most perfect location for the photographs. Diane is the best and we HIGHLY recommend her to capture not only the photographs for your wedding but also the emotions behind them.Sent on 07/15/2019
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
