    A Photographer Who Got Us

    Hudson River Photographer was the perfect addition to our almost all women vendor team.
    We were initially attracted to the style of Hudson River Photographer. Then we were captivated more by the diversity of couples in Diane’s body of work. Then, when we met Diane, the deal was sealed. We knew we wanted her to capture our day. She not only captured our energy and vibe, but most of all, I swear you can feel love when you look at our photos. We have all the usual photos you want of your wedding but we also have all the photos of the the sweet moments, photos of our loved ones coming down the aisle looking like celebrities, folks on the dance floor looking like they are living their best lives and our pups watching their pawrents during the ceremony. Diane captured a photo of our niece admiring herself in a mirror. That’s the kind of eye and photographer who’s photos we will cherish for our lifetime.
    Our magical outdoors first look was thwarted by 40 mph winds and rain but no problem for Hudson River Photographer. She found a spot inside that worked perfectly. When Diane said to me ‘Katie, this looks like a Vermeer painting’ I swear I almost lost it with pure joy.
    When we were wrangling our wedding parties and family Diane stood in the mud for 30 minutes while she got the perfect shots. She kept everyone on task and was time efficient which was greatly appreciated. I also appreciate the feedback and coaching Diane provided to make sure we looked our best. She wasn’t shy to tell me to lower my head when I thought I looked like a model but looked insane.
    The integrity, professionalism and pure artistry Diane and her team poses was exceptional. Absolutely worth the investment. The only negative is I can’t possibly choose a limited number of photos for our album!
    -Katie and Lucas

    Money Well Spent

    Diane is a total pro and a joy to work with. As a lesbian couple, we were looking for either a lesbian photographer or a photographer who’d shot lesbian weddings in which both brides were wearing dresses. (We weren’t interested in being put in butch-femme poses that mimic heterosexual couples’ traditional wedding shots.) With DIane, we got both. She was truly everything we were looking for—and she defied expectations.

    What stood out to us in Diane’s portfolio were her candid photos—the way she captured the emotion and feeling of an event with a still image. When we look back on our photos, we can hear the music and laughter and feel the warmth and joy of the day. Diane really did an incredible job.

    The day of the wedding, we were off to a bit of a late start with figuring out a two-bride first look, but Diane got everything back on track. She moved quickly and gave good direction, without being too demanding. She was assertive, but also managed to make the experience feel laid back. We were truly grateful for our moments with her away from the crowd that day. She made us laugh and helped us take a breath. But during the ceremony and reception, we barely remember seeing her, which is exactly what a good photographer does.

    Diane was also very accomodating. We have large families and wanted to do family portraits before the ceremony. Though she was initially worried about time constraints, Diane killed it. She commanded a group of 60+ people, and got every photo we asked for... and in record time. She was also willing to work with one of our mother’s, who wanted table photos. And even though it wasn’t what we hired Diane for—and it’s an outdated wedding photography practice, anyway—she did her best to get them.

    Also, we highly suggest doing an engagement session. Doing that months before the wedding helped us get comfortable with Diane and with being in some intimate/awkward poses in front of a camera. By the time it came to our wedding day, we were pros—whispering “look at each other,” “look away,” “look in the distance,” “heads together,” etc. to each other, which made our portrait sessions move quickly. We couldn’t have been so prepared without Diane’s guidance at the engagement session. Also, she was willing to reschedule that shoot for us multiple times when the weather wasn’t on our side, even though she had to come from Rhinebeck to New York City for it.

    We’d said if we liked two of our engagement photos, we’d be happy. We ended up “favoriting” dozens. We were blown away by how much Diane captured us, without making us look skinnier or more flawless. It was us, but the best version of us—and we were overjoyed.

    The short of it is, Diane is a dream to work with and the results took our breath away. At the end of the day, you only have the memories and photos from your wedding to look back on, and they’re in the best hands with Diane. Whether you’re a gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual, or trans couple, you want her to capture your big day. We couldn’t recommend her enough.
