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!!

Diane did an absolutely fabulous job. She was easy to work with during the pre-wedding planning stage and did a great job during the wedding ceremony. I loved her low-key presence and her tolerance of my relatives' cameras. And the finished photos are just perfect. The noon glare that showed up in my family's amateur pictures is nowhere evident in Diane's photos; her arrangements of our group photos turned out beautifully; and the portraits of me and my husband make us look gorgeous. Diane's prices were reasonable as well. My family "complained," though, that there are so many great shots that they all ended up ordering lots of photos!

Diane is an amazing photographer. We absolutely love the shots she took for us-- she really listened to what we wanted and delivered! A few weeks before the wedding, Diane spent over an hour with me at the ceremony site, which was so generous of her. In fact, she even helped us pick the ceremony site. Thanks again Diane!

Five stars for Diane Askew! Her photos of our wedding in October '08 were very special. Diane is a talented photographer with an artistic eye. She also has a talent for making her subjects comfortable. My husband and I almost forgot she was there until we received the beautiful photos. Thank you, Diane, for the beautiful keepsakes of our special day in Kenwood!

Diane is an artist. The quality of her photos speaks for itself. More importantly, Diane is a pleasure to work with. She is genuinely interested in getting to know her clients before their big day and does all she can to ensure she takes the kinds of photos her clients want (for example, more candids or preference for posed portraits). She also has a very caring and relaxed demeanor which is wonderful on your wedding day. No one wants an overly intense photographer ordering them around! While she was great about keeping us on schedule and making sure we slipped away from our reception to get the sunset shots we wanted, she orchestrated everything with total grace so we didn't feel rushed or ordered around. And, in the end, we could not be more thrilled with our wedding photos. We have 850. And they're all framable! Diane beautifully captured all of our guests; the most tender moments of our ceremony; the prettiest details of our reception; and the overall spirit of love and joy that pervaded our day. We are thrilled and could not recommend Diane more highly. She also took fabulous engagement photos a few months before the wedding. It was wonderful to have a session with her beforehand so we all felt comfortable together on the big day. And we had an album of engagement pics at our wedding for our guests to sign. The best keepsake for years to come!

Diane and her co-photographer Greg were so easy to work with; my husband and I are notoriously camera-shy, but I actually found myself enjoying posing for them. We also received many compliments from our guests about how professional, polite, and creative our photographers were. I was referred to Diane by another photographer, and I think that indicates how well-regarded and talented she and Greg are.
