I'm not sure which thingsto rave about frst -- probably the incredible pictures which truly flattered us and were not the same-old tired compositions -- or the fact that Diane is just so flexible, easy to work with, patient, fun and more. We are so impressed with her shots and the family is, too. She maks everything look positively magical. No need to review dozens of photographers. This is the one you want. We are perfectly happy and the pictures are -- breathtaking!

I cannot say enough good things about Diane. She was so patient and simply amazing with all the changes in wedding plans due to bad weather. She even came in super early in the morning to get family pictures out of the way. Our pictures look amazing. All I can say is you made me look like a princess in my wedding pictures and captured every moment and every expression beautifully. When I look at the pictures now I can remember every emotion of that day because you captured us in our moments beautifully.

Diane did an amazing job capturing the magic and joy that surrounded our wedding day. She was a great communicator leading up to the big day. We did not get to meet prior to the day because we had a destination wedding and only arrived a couple days before the wedding. She arrived at our tiny 14 person event and fit in with everyone. My husband and I were not used to having professional photography and were nervous about that part of the day. She was very assuring and comforting. I had several ideas of pictures that i wanted and Diane was able to translate them into amazing pictures. She also had so many great ideas of her own. My dress was a little unusual and I loved it. Diane understood how I felt about it and worked really hard to get fabulous pictures of me in it. After the wedding, Diane rushed my pictures because I was having a reception at home since our wedding was so small. They arrived well in advance of when I needed them. The pictures were amazing!!!!!!!!!!! She was able to capture the intimacy and joy in our small wedding. She got fantastic shots of me and my husband. The pictures were very interesting and showed the character of our wedding and the town where we were married. We could not be any happier with her personally or with her photography. I would highly recommend her.

I am sorry I can't give Diane more than 5 stars! I interviewed 7 (!) photographers. She was less expensive than most of them, and her photos seemed to be as nice or nicer than all of them...at any price. Some of the prices were in my opinion exorbitant! Diane was easy to work with before the event. She made us feel beautiful and relaxed during all the many shots she took of us during the event. Finally, you would not believe how many people have remarked that the shots she took of us are the best wedding photography they have ever seen! Thank you Diane...wait until you see the 3 Wedding albums we made from your beautiful images!

Diane and her associate were so easy to work with. While remaining professional at all times, they made us feel relaxed and natural which shows up in the photos. They have a great sense of color, background and style which matched with desire to balance "formal" with "relaxed". Interestingly we NEVER felt their presence during the ceremony or reception. They worked with us on the formal pictures by setting up a process for our guests to take individual group photos. Everyone loved the photos and we have since seen SEVERAL of the individual photos show up on Christmas Cards!

After the wedding, Diane delivered the photos, proofs, etc. ahead of schedule and without incident, while keeping us well informed along the way.

Amy and I highly recommend Diane and her team!

What would you want in the perfect wedding photographer? Seriously, make a list.

My fiancée and I wanted someone who cared about us, who had excitement and a sense of fun about what we were going through, and who listened well enough to understand both the big picture (no pun intended) and the smallest details of our special day.

We wanted someone who was willing to do for us everything we knew we wanted, while offering options we would never have thought to ask about. We needed expertise and guidance.

We wanted a photographer we could trust to capture every aspect of our wedding day - every tear, every smile, every hug - someone who could be everywhere all at once, yet be unobtrusive.

We needed someone who could be patient with us.

We wanted value.

We wanted photographs we could cherish for a lifetime - evocative, beautiful photographs capturing not only what happened, but the emotions of the day as well.

Diane Askew provided all these things and much more. Her professionalism is unparalleled; her artistry with the camera breathtaking.

When we first met, we liked Diane immediately. She listened much more than she talked, asked questions, answered questions, and showed genuine interest in us as people. When Diane showed us examples of her work, I was ready to hire her at any price, and I was pleased to discover that her rates are extremely reasonable. For the quality of service and beauty of the final product, Diane's pricing is a great value. Shop around - you'll see.

I highly recommend Diane Askew to you. She exceeded our expectations in every way; she'll do the same for you, I'm sure.

Feel free to call me if you'd like to speak personally about Diane's great service. Dave 707.799.6138

A destination wedding in Sonoma was my daughter's dream. Organizing everything from a distance was a bit frightening. Finding a photographer for the special occasion was daunting. Luckily, we found Diane Askew of Caswell and Askew Studio. What a treat to have such a professional touch for this very important aspect of the wedding. Diane handled everything in an easy manner. She was very easy to work with before, during and after the wedding. I had heard horror stories of pushy photographers for weddings and did not want to experience that. Diane was anything but pushy. On the contrary, she was helpful through the entire process. Her pre-planning with me made for a very smooth wedding day and the photos she took of the wedding were spectacular. She had prior experience at the venue which was helpful in taking advantage of the beautiful property. Lighting and background expertise set off the photos in a spectacular fashion. I would highly recommend Diane for any event. She is calm, extremely talented, and a did a fantastic job. Thank You, Diane!!

I can't recommend Diane Askew enough. She did a superb job photographing our wedding. Her pre-wedding planning and communication was excellent, as was her post-wedding work. She responded to last minute requests and was utterly professional...prompt, attentive to detail, and easy to work with. I found her prices to be an incredible value to boot. There are photos she captured of my ceremony that still make me cry with emotion; I couldn't believe she got all those shots. She LOVES doing photo-journalism style, so make sure you don't do too many of those portrait shots...utilize her skill of capturing you in the moment! And have a great wedding!!
