Wow!! Diana came highly recommended from a friend who used her as her wedding photographer. My husband and I just got married and couldn’t be happier with choosing Diana as well!! She was phenomenal. Although I was harder to reach, I loved that she really wanted to get to know me during the wedding planning process and was in constant communication. I loved her pictures on her website because she was unique and had a great eye that wasn’t too traditional and generic “just like everybody else’s.” She asked me all the right questions about what I liked and wanted without putting too much pressure on me since she is the professional. She was knowledgeable and organized and very patient us. The day of the wedding we couldn’t find our list of specific shots we wanted so she knew who to call up after the ceremony (ie: mom and dad, cousins, etc) and she didn’t panic at all and made me feel okay about stupidly forgetting it. She made it all work out smoothly. She’s from San Francisco and came out with another photographer so neither knew the area at all. They took the time to scope out the area and find the perfect shots for both sides of the wedding party. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to see all the shots! The photographers never stopped taking pictures and I know captured some awesome “candid” moments that will be way better than just standing there and posing. Of course we still did the traditional shots but she exceeded our expectations by capturing “us” in the other photos! Diana also snuck my husband and I out of the reception to take some amazing sunset photos. It was awesome to be able to take a moment of just us! Diana sent us a sneak peak of some of the pictures and they are SO INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to see the rest! I highly recommend her for her suburb professionalism and talents!! We are so grateful for her services. You won’t regret your decision in hiring her!

Diana is an expert at capturing the emotions of any moment. Diana attentively listened to us during every conversation leading up to a photo session, and the pictures we received from the engagement session, the photobooth at the wedding, and our wedding photos are absolutely amazing!
Details and creativity come first for Diana. For our engagement session, we wanted two very different styles of photos. Getting a family photo with our pooches and an elegant evening shot where we got engaged was important to us. By using treats for the dogs and being a natural at calming a camera-shy couple, Diana snapped the perfect shots of us. Diana also arranged ahead of time with one of our locations for us to get there early and have the place to ourselves. It was that extra step that she took that helped get that elegant, just-right shot that many of our friends swear should be on the cover of a magazine!
Diana's photobooth is above the rest. The photobooth is operated by one of Diana's assistants who made sure the guests were positioned correctly for the perfect pic! She also had props available for the guests, and displayed an oh-so creative sign directing guests to the photobooth. The absolutely adorable tags with photos from our engagement session on them giving guests directions to access the photos were yet another example of how in tune to details and the little things Diana is.
When it came to the day of our wedding, Diana had spoken to me as many times to help me finalize timelines and photograph details. She reviewed the information and talked me through some ideas to get the most out of the photographs that day. As all brides know, the days leading up to the wedding are the most stressful, and I truly appreciated Diana's attention to the timeline of the day and other details that would help plan for the day's photographs.
Looking back on one of our first conversations, I explained to Diana that I wanted the photos to capture the rustic elegance of our venue and our vision. She nailed it! Now I just have to figure out how to narrow down the photos to the ones I want in an album and I'm having a very difficult time doing that because I want them ALL!!! :)
Diana is above the rest and her photographs balance traditional , beautiful, fun, and creative photography. She puts her clients first and by doing so, her photos truly represent the beauty of each couple.
Thanks Diana and team!!!

Diana is brilliant, her photographs are amazing, I am having a tough time writing this because I don't want to understate how thrilled we are with her work. She photographed our wedding in September and even came back the next day to do a pool shoot because I was dying to jump in donning my wedding dress. All of our photos were great, I am having the toughest time deciding which photos to purchase! She will capture who you are in a way that will astound you and at the same time will make sure to hit all of the "classic" wedding shots. Diana is extremely professional and friendly, we felt instantly comfortable with her as though she was an old friend. She will travel, gets photos out to you quickly, 3-4wks for us, and her online ordering system is a snap. And did I mention her work is AMAZING! I cannot wait to see where her talent takes her and cannot wait to work with her again!

I had the pleasure of having Diana photograph our engagement pictures. She is such an amazing photographer and being with her all day was so comfortable and fun. Her flexibility is amazing as we had to reschedule and relocate multiple times due to crazy weather, and each time she happily made time for us! She made us feel really special. The photos she captured are amazing! We get so many compliments about our engagement pictures. I am so pleased with Diana's work and professionalism. Thank you so much Diana! You are awesome!

Diana Maire photographed my wedding and I was so impressed with her level of professionalism and creativity. She is extremely friendly and likeable, which made my husband and I both feel comfortable in front of the camera. She accomodated all of our requests and produced an incredible range of shots for us to choose from. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer in the Bay Area.

We decided to go with Diana Maire Photography for our wedding. Diana was extremely helpful and positive about the entire process, working with my wife and I to decide how traditional or unique we wanted our photos to be. The photos for our engagement session and wedding/reception turned out great and we received them promptly. Perhaps the best part of our experience was Diana’s positive attitude on the day of wedding. She was particularly calming on a day when people's nerves can get the best of them. Thanks Diana!

It was a cool experience working with you Diana. For whatever reason my review posted twice...since Wedding Wire and Project Wedding are linked. Thank you yet again!

Diana is a wonderful photographer she did a beautiful job on our wedding in May 2008 in Stockton, CA. Our wedding album is spectacular. She travels when needed and she is very accommodating to our needs. We now go to her for all our photography needs.
