"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.

    Excellent Work

    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!

    Beautiful photographs!

    We are so thankful that we chose Diane as our wedding photographer! Choosing a photographer was one of the most difficult decisions we made in choosing vendors, because we wanted someone who would help us capture the happiness and romance of our day by photographing real moments, rather than staged poses. Diane's work meets this description exactly, and her beautiful photos exceeded our expectations.

    Diane's skill and versatility were especially valuable in our case because we had to switch our wedding plan to a small, socially distanced celebration after COVID-19 hit. Diane captured the magic and love of our wedding perfectly, all the while maintaining social distancing and despite the fact that our guests/wedding party were wearing masks -- truly amazing. We are so grateful for her help in capturing the day so perfectly, not just for us but for our family and friends who could not attend. Highly highly recommend Diane!

    Beautiful Work By a Total Pro

    We could not have been happier we chose Diane as our wedding photographer. Her work is beautiful but also authentic — no cheesy, prom-style style images here. She captured our day perfectly, and she was somehow everywhere without us even noticing her once the party got going. Even more impressive, she had a preview set of images to us within days, and the full set in a matter of weeks.

    I gave Diane five stars flexibility — but I wouldn't necessarily call her flexible. She's a real pro, and she knows exactly what she's doing and how to do it well. She was totally accommodating, but also she made sure that she got what she needed from us. She was exactly as flexible and inflexible as she had to be in order to do her job well.

    Our Catskills wedding was perfect, but, as city people, we also realized that lot of vendors worked on what we termed "upstate time." Calls weren't always returned, follow ups didn't always arrive. Except with Diane. You'll wish everyone you work with is as organized, responsive, and competent as Diane. She's the best.
