Di was our photographer for both engagement and wedding. He is a great guy and a pleasure to work with.

We had our engagement photo session in Central Park. The pictures were AMAZING!! He captured the style and lighting exactly how we wanted. He knew all the great areas and spots that we would never think of.

On our wedding day, Di showed up early and told us to enjoy our wedding and he'll take care of our big day. He was very professional and courteous when working with the venue and other vendors. He really knows how to capture the essence of a wedding. Every single picture came out beautiful, we're really thankful to have someone so great to be our photographer on our biggest day.

YES, I would highly recommend Di to my friends and family, or anyone who's reading this review. Wedding planning can be stressful, but your experience don't have to be. We're glad we chose Di to be our photographer for our engagement and wedding.

Di was so excellent to work with! We met two times before the wedding, one to make sure he was legit and review his stuff and then once to go over all of the shots. When I saw his porfolio I knew he was our guy. We had a small ceremony in Central Park and a reception afterwards. He was so easy to work with and our photos turned out beautifully! It was the hottest day of summer that day and he was a true champ. He got such great photos and did it so discreetly. I have recommended him to several of my friends and will continue to do so. Our only regret was that we didn't hire him to come along and document our honeymoon! ;) Thank you Di!

Di was a pleasure to work with and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He lightened the mood without being too invasive, and we had a lot of fun with him. Both our engagement and wedding photos had a great combination of beautiful and playful shots, and after a terrible experience with another photographer who gave us no direction, we really appreciated him telling us how to look our best. He also let us preview a number of shots and retake some, which was great!

My wife and I could not be any happier with Di (and Eddie)!

From the very beginning when we started discussing our wedding, Di was extremely cooperative and helpful. He gave us a bunch of suggestions on what to order and how to handle different issues. He was always very friendly and offered us great rates, especially given the service and quality of his work.

From the engagement photo shoot and the fantastic wooden case he gave us the pics in, to the surprise pics he'd post on Facebook, to the wedding day itself, and the day he gave us the final photos, every step was perfect. Di and Eddie were very fun to take pics with during our photo shots prior to the event on our wedding day. I've been in wedding parties where the photographers were annoying, but these guys were the exact opposite.

I have been and will be recommending Di (and Eddie, if he was staying) to all my friends who are looking for photographers. I am very glad that Di chose this to be his profession. Well done!

Di was very interactive and knew how to make you feel comfortable. While taking photos you wonder why you have to do certain poses, but we trusted Di during our engagement session and when we saw the photos we were blown away by his creativity. At the wedding we were so comfortable and knew that he would capture every moment. By far the best photographer we ever met!

Di is the man! We are so thankful we chose Di as our wedding photographer! Choosing a photographer was one of the more nerve-racking steps during our planning process. We really didn’t know where to start- we had attended several weddings, but were never really impressed with the photographers. We chose Di after getting a few recommendations and checking out a few places, and looking back it was the right call!

He did both our engagement shoot and our wedding start to finish, and did an outstanding job. We were hesitant going into our engagement shoot, as neither of us are really into photo shoots. We expected an awkward afternoon of taking pictures, but with Di at the helm, we walked away all smiles and couldn’t get over how much fun we had. Di has an incredible eye for great shots. He immediately got a feel for us and was able to direct and work with us to achieve shots that were beyond our expectations.

After the engagement shoot, we couldn’t wait for the wedding photos. Again, we were not disappointed! He got all the shots we asked for, and then some! We were really concerned since our entire wedding was going to be indoors, but again Di’s skill and experience impressed. He made the most of our venue, and found some really unique settings that led to some incredible shots.

Beyond the incredible photos, Di is also incredibly easy to work with and a total professional. He was easy to communicate with, promptly responding to any questions or concerns we had. We would recommend Di and Heartfelt to anyone looking to capture their wedding or special event in photos!

Di Zhang and his staff were superb. From the moment my wife and I met Di, we know we had a "keeper". He's very friendly and down-to-earth, and he makes you feel comfortable as he's capturing Kodak moments. But beyond the enjoyment of the actual picture taking experience, the results are beautiful. My wife and I were shocked at what beauty he was able to capture on camera of all our special moments during our wedding. And he will work with you to focus on the style of photography that you would prefer. We highly recommend working with Di!

Di was our photographer for our wedding in October, 2012. Not only is he laid back and funny but he is a skilled photographer as well. We took an array of posed (ie. family pics) but mostly candid shots that were both unique and personal. Since it rained on our wedding day, Di changed the location of our photos on a whim which turned out to better than our original location. We cannot thank Di enough for all the time and effort he put in to make our day go without a hitch! We have gotten so many compliments on our wedding photos. We love them and we love Di! I would highly recommend Heartfelt Foto for your wedding.

Hands down the best photographer we could ever have for our wedding! I only met Di one before my wedding, but I already knew he would be great - he has a great personality that you will never feel uneasy talking or working with him.

On the wedding day, not surprisingly, Di was as great as expected, we couldn't be happier having him to capture every moment of our big day.

We had a small ceremony in Central Park and had a few hours' photo shoot afterwards. It was pleasant couple hours when we traveled through the Park and all the way down to South Ferry. I'm usually camera-shy and can get stiff when it comes to photo shooting, but Di made it so comfortable, I truly enjoyed the whole process.

The finished pictures came on a DVD in a delicate wood box engraved with our names. The "feature" picture printed on the DVD turned out to be my favorite picture of the entire set. But of course, all the pictures were just awesome.

Thank you so very much Di. You are the man!

I'd recommend him 120% to whoever's looking for a photographer on your wedding day. It's an important decision to make, and you will be making the right one by choosing Di. :)

I'm usually camera-shy and can get stiff when it comes to photo shooting, but Di made it so comfortable, I truly enjoyed the whole process.

The finished pictures came on a DVD in a delicate wood box engraved with our names. The "feature" picture printed on the DVD turned out to be my favorite picture of the entire set. But of course, all the pictures were just awesome.

Thank you so very much Di. You are the man!

I'd recommend him 120% to whoever's looking for a photographer on your wedding day. It's an important decision to make, and you will be making the right one by choosing Di. :) Read less

Di is amazing! We were so pleased with every aspect of our photos. Di and his team did such an amazing job at capturing every emotion throughout the day.

We also loved that Di provided us with a CD of all of our images. This made it super easy to share our photos with our family and friends.

I would highly recommend Di for your wedding!

I want to start by thanking Di for all that he did. I looked far and wide for a good Photographer and I was recommended to use Dreamlife Photo and Video for a good value. We got paired with the senior photographer. He is very easy to work with, makes you feel very comfortable and most of all when he shoots you barely notice he's there. My engagment photos were taken in the beginning of May 2012 in Central Park on a gorgeous Sunday. Even though it was on an "Hour Engagment Photo session" he went over the alloatted time as he wanted to get a few more good shoots in. Clearly he is passionate about what he does:)

I was SO impressed by my photos that it was my peace of mind that my wedding photos will come outs great and I was NOT let down. And might I add I got my engagement photos were ready within a WEEK of shoot.

On the day of my wedding, he was on time, he was shooting away in the background as my bridesmaids and I were getting ready. My husband and I decided to do pictures before the ceremony (highly recommned this) so we did the First Look at a park in town. Di captured all the angels I wanted! I think the most memoriable part is when he took a group shoot of the entire bridal party next to the lake in the park. He literally kicked off his shoes and went into the water and started to taking shoots. My guests are still talking about that photo!!

Lastly, I want to add I love his style. Its a perfect blend of photojourlarism and traditional. Satisfies my artistic tastes and catpured those essential photos of my father and I, mother and I that I need for framing.

Thanks Di!

Di was absolutely a pleasure to work with, from our beautiful engagement pictures to our amazing and unforgetable wedding day he captured every moment every detail every aspect that makes us want to go back and look at our pictures every month. His professionalism yet his laid back attitude helped us all enjoy the day and relax us so that every picture taken can truly capture the happiness we felt. everyone of our friends and family had nothing but compliments towards Di, how great he was and how at ease he made everyone feel. I can honestly say I could not have had a better photographer and I would recommend him to anyone. I hope we can work again in the future!

What else could I say, but Di was incredible! My husband and I were attracted by Di's artistic style and ability to capture incredible pictures. We saw his work and were instantly inclined to use him for our wedding!

Our engagement session was a great experience. Di made us completely comfortable with all of our shots and captured the most amazing pictures. He is not only easy to work with, but his photographic skills are unmatched.

The day of our wedding, Di was great. He is so easy to work with and had everyone laughing. Our entire bridal parties and families were extremely impressed with him. What I most liked about Di was that he was able to get a tremendous amount of pictures, but my husband and I never once felt as though we were being pulled away from our wedding, interrupted to take a picture or bothered. He was quietly capturing the best shots without ever seeming to be there. At other weddings, some people brides and grooms complain that their photographer pulled them out of their own wedding too much - well, this was not the case with DI! He manages time very well so that the pictures taken do not take away from any part of your special day.

I would recommend Heartfelt to anyone! In fact we did, and they booked right away as well. The quality of work, the professionalism, Di's ability to work with anyone and the passion for photography make this an easy pick when booking for your own wedding or special occasion!

Di is an amazing photographer who not only understands his craft but is passionate about his work and it shows! We hired him after reading reviews and reviewing some of his work and the photos he took on our wedding day captured not only the beautiful day we had, but also all the raw emotions. He was friendly and easy to work with, putting us at ease the moment he started. He got along well with all of the wedding party and everyone else at the wedding and captured some (2400!) amazing shots. I would highly recommend him (and have) to anyone-- you will definitely not be disappointed. He is worth every penny!! :)Thanks Di!

Di was an amazing photographer for both our engagement and wedding photos. We had our engagement pictures done in Dumbo and Di did a fantastic job ofcapturing the beauty of the city as well telling our story. He was even better on our wedding day as the shots he took were natural and realistic. He is very intuitive when it comes to taking pictures and couldn't be any easier to work with. He is friendly, professional and excels at his art. I will definitely recommend Di to our newly engaged friends and hope to use him in the future as well!

Dear brides,

Choosing a photographer is by far the most important to-do on your list. You want someone you feel comfortable around, someone who knows how to make you look beautiful, and someone who you trust with capturing one of the most important days in your life.

Di is all of those someones and more. Not only was he our wedding and engagement shoot photographer, he's now a close friend. During the ceremony, he snapped candid pictures -- most of the time without us even knowing -- all of which were beautiful, unposed, and sincere. During the reception, he took the necessary group/family shots, but really captured the essence of the evening -- the beach, the moon, the details.

I look at these pictures every day and can still smell the salty air, feel the sand, and taste the cake. If you want photos that make your big day/night unforgettable -- Di's your man!

Di is an amazing photographer! His ability to capture the magic of every emotion and moment without intruding into the moment is sheer perfection. We hired Di as a photographer for our wedding and for our engagement shoot at Yankee Stadium! Even though our Engagement shoot was at such an iconic venue, he was still able to capture the playfulness and essence of who we are as a couple while still capturing the beauty of the stadium. On our wedding day, he knew exactly what to say to put all the nerves and excitement at ease and catch beautiful moments throughout the day. The rose garden which was the original location for our bridal portraits was affected by a cold weather spell, but Di came to the rescue! Across the street from our original locotion, Di spotted another location that was so much better. The pictures of myself and the groom alone on a tiny stone walkway in the middle of a pond were simply breathtaking and were some of our favorite moments of the day. On some of the most important events of your life, you are going to want someone who can think on their feet, be able to go with the flow, contend with many different personalities of all of the guests and family members, as well as capture every moment that they can without artificially manipulatiing the day- Di is definitely that person! I have the most amazing pictures to look back on to remind me of the happiest day of my life and I can't thank Di enough for capturing the beauty in every moment!

Di was amazing! He captured all the precious moments of our wedding from getting ready, to the ceremony, all the way to the reception! Before our big day, he took the time to sit with us and discuss the run down of our wedding day, what we were wishing to capture and he delivered to the fullest. We wanted a photo journalistic approach with some traditional photos (like the photos with the family) and he did just that. We had a very unique venue, a broadway theater in Times Square NY, and he really knew how to capture pictures that spoke to you. He played with the rarity of this historic reception place and really captured the essence of our New York wedding! We even did a stroll around Times Square and he took some amazing pictures using the backdrop of the heart of the Theater District! Our wedding was a feature in Manhattan Bride magazine the following year and we were able to use Di's pictures to showcase our beautiful and memorable occasion! I would definitely recommend him.

In 2010, we hired Di as our wedding photographer, and we couldn't have been happier with our selection. We had a destination wedding in New York City, and although we had some general ideas about what we wanted our wedding photos to look like, Di crafted some spectacular shots that we never would have got otherwise. On that day he was almost as much of a tour guide as a photographer, and his artistic talent behind the lens is perhaps even more appreciated now looking back. To say that Di is a fantastic wedding photographer is an understatement.

Di was professional, prepared, and an impromptu friend in the midst of the happy chaotic storm that was our wedding day. I am proud to show off the photographs he took that day- they are well composed, artistic and unique. But the thing that I appreciate the most about them is that they captured the spirit of the moment, in a way that I don't think any other photographer could.

Di is great, hire him.
