It is easy for us to show how incredibel Diane's work is by sharing a few pictures from our wedding on her blog. Not only was she wonderful to work with but she is a true artist. Her photography is amazing - it's the perfect combination of unposed but perfectly curated. She gracefully captured all the guests, the ambiance and all of the decor.

She has an incredible eye - we would recommend her to EVERYONE. She will create wonderful memories for you!

I don't think I need to write a review for Diane's photography. One look at her photos and you will see just how breathtaking and unbelievably beautiful they are and what an amazingly talented photographer she is. Her work speaks for itself.
I found Diane when I was looking for small venues in the Hudson Valley. I found her blog and instantly fell in love with her work. I actually contacted her to find out her availability even before I had a venue. I told her I was looking in the area, but hadn't found a venue because we were having a fairly small wedding (80-100) and all the venues I could find were much larger. She promptly sent me a list with previous small venues she had worked at in the area, even though I had not asked her to do so. I thought that was pretty impressive for a vendor who I had never met and had not booked with her yet. Right from the start, she was so helpful and very quick to respond. When we finally did meet, she was so down to earth. I booked her as soon as I booked the venue.
We used Diane for our engagement pictures, and immediately she helped us to feel at ease. She was also very flexible with her schedule, as we ended up having to change our engagement session last minute due to weather. Both our wedding and engagement photos turned out to be beautiful! I felt really badly for her on the day of my wedding because she was rushed to get all our pictures in on time and the locations were limited due to rainy weather, yet somehow, with her magic eye, we received stunning photos! Every one of my friends has commented to me about how wonderful our photos are! I don't know if I have another vendor I would recommend as highly as her. Needless to say, I was extremely happy with my decision of using Hudson River Photographer for my wedding.

Diane's service is impeccable. Her photos are beyond beautiful and she is just wonderful to work with. She has various packages to work from and is very keen on getting to know you both so she can really grasp your personalities. She also takes more candid pictures than pose'y pictures which I think is the way to do it. Capturing those special moments that last for a split second is so important and special, and Diane and her team do that beautifully. She is the best wedding photographer out there!

I have nothing but positive things to say about Diane and Hudson River Photography. When looking for a wedding photographer I fell in love with Diane’s portfolio. Her pictures speak for themselves, they are clearly excellent works of art, her eye is spot-on and execution impeccable. I don’t believe I need to sell anyone on her pictures, just look at them for yourself.
There are other things to look for when choosing a wedding photographer, besides the quality of the photographs, and that is the professionalism of the photographer. Diane is exceptional in this regard as well. From the moment we starting inquiring about hiring her as our wedding photographer, she was prompt in returning e-mails or phone calls and was able to provide us with all of the necessary information we needed to go ahead with signing a contract.

We had wanted a good amount of family portraits and Diane was able to get everyone in and out for these portraits in a timely fashion and the portraits are GORGEOUS! The whole family is ecstatic with the results and the only problem is that there are TOO MANY great photographs to choose from. This is not something you might initially think about when hiring a wedding photographer, but, trust me, it is very important, and we were able to appreciate Diane’s professionalism in getting it done with very little stress and with great results.

Best decision we ever made when picking a photographer. She was a little out of my price range initially, but her work is priceless and soooo worth it.

Diane is extremely talented and has a wonderful, calming energy about her, something that comes in handy when EVERYONE is super anxious on and leading up to the wedding day. Working with Diane was easy from the start and our photos are fantastic. Not every vendor was a pleasure to work with, so that in itself was wonderful. I live in CO but got married in NY. I also have an art and photography background, so I have an artistic eye and I knew what I was looking for in a photographer. Despite the fact that NY is such a wonderful, artistic hub, finding a great, artistic, creative photographer from out of state was not easy, and NY rates for the talented photographers gave me some serious sticker shock. I must have investigated over 50 photographers before finding Diane. I loved her work immediately and from the very first time I spoke with her, she put me at ease. She was honest and transparent with regards to her rates, expectations, etc. etc. etc. She was very professional, quick to respond and good at communicating, and her experience really helped me have a better understanding of what to expect on my wedding day, what to plan for etc. In speaking with her, I learned that she has a very forward looking (i.e. timeless) approach to her wedding photography style, and she made me aware of some stylistic considerations that I had not taken into account and that no other photographer had addressed with me. On the wedding day, we were behind schedule (something that usually makes me very anxious), dealing with overcast skies, the threat of rain (it held off!), losing daylight, and a disorganized crew (our friends and family kept disappearing at picture time). Diane was calm when she could have been anxious. This helped calm my nerves. She was firm when she needed to get people in order (which I loved), but she was able to do this without being rude or causing more anxiety (pretty skillful, actually). We had a wonderful day and a fabulous party. I think Diane's energy had a lot to do with the success of our event as her creativity, flexibility, and easy going nature made these potential “threats” (to the success of the day) nothing more than momentary, insignificant glitches. Diane had some serious challenges to work with (see above), but she was able to capture the essence of our day anyhow. She even listened to my weird and quirky insecurities and managed to take them into account with nearly all of the photographs!. I would recommend Diane/ Hudson River Photographer without hesitation. Thank you Diane/ Hudson River Photographer for your creativity, flexibility, calming nature and for taking this one piece of the stress that is wedding planning off of my plate! Also, thank you for capturing all of the details and beauty of our wedding day.

Diane shot our wedding and was an absolute joy, and frankly, one of our favorite wedding memories. Both my wife and I were shy in front of the camera, but were put at ease by Diane’s playful and fun manner. She is a great person to have around during the stress of a wedding: flitting in and out amidst the chaos, getting what she needs without getting in anyone’s way and bringing her usual charm. All of this is to describe how much we liked Diane as a person, and doesn’t at all cover how great of a photog she is. I think her work speaks for itself, but to say it explicitly, we were amazed by how much we like our photos. Two other notes: 1. we opted for engagement photos after much deliberation, and found it to be a great way to get to know Diane before the big day and to get comfortable in front of the camera, and 2. Diane’s assistant was just as likable and professional.

Diane is great, she provided us with an engagement shoot that really helped us prepare and be comfortable with our wedding shots. The wedding was a crazy, hectic day and Diane still went around and did her thing. She even stayed later and took more pictures. We havent seen the final product yet but I am sure it will
all turn out great based on the sneak peek on her blog. Thanks so much Diane!
And please convey our appreciation to Alan as well!!

Overall I was very satisfied with selecting Diane as my photographer for my wedding. My husband and I set up a meeting with Diane prior to our wedding to go over all the details for our big day. She was very easy to talk to, professional, energetic and flexible. The beautiful pictures from our wedding show how great of a photographer Diane really is. I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks again Diane. : )

I would highly recommend Diane to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Diane's professionalism, energy, and relaxed attitude made her a pleasure to work with! I absolutely knew from the start that we were in very good hands with Diane! She took the time to get to know us, find out what we were looking for, and then took us through her plan/vision for our day. Simple as that! She was easy to communicate with, open to our ideas, and very capable. I mentioned to Diane that I would like a group shot of all of our guests and wedding party, and there she was on her ladder--taking the most beautiful photo of everyone on our wedding day! The photos she took of us on our wedding day are absolutely gorgeous. She was able to capture all of the subtle moments of our wedding that I would have never seen. I've looked at many wedding photos of friends and have never seen any that capture all of the little moments that make up what a wedding is truly about. All of our friends and family were blown away by our photos and we couldn't be happier with them!

I've looked at many wedding photos of friends and have never seen any that capture all of the little moments that make up what a wedding is truly about. All of our friends and family were blown away by our photos and we couldn't be happier with them! Read less

Diane was an absolute breath of fresh air!!
Amidst all the vendors we were trying to coordinate, our meeting with Diane was a pleasure and kick started our wedding excitement. It was great to work with someone so organized, who asked all the right questions yet was completely relaxed. My husband and I live in the city so our communication with Diane was almost entirely over email and yet nothing was lost in translation. I am glad we went with Diane's suggestion of a combination of candids and formals. Our photographs are stunning and the formals are a big hit with family! We even wanted to fly Diane out to India with us to photograph our ceremony in Mumbai!!
Most importantly we danced the night away, we have pictures that make us look like we were in a beautiful movie and we never even realized we were being photographed.

I found Diane through a online search and just loved her creative/artistic photography style. Most of our communication was through email. We meet her once before our wedding. She asked us questions regarding our day to get a sense of who we are and what we wanted for our wedding pictures. My husband and I immediately felt comfortable with Diane.
She took the traditional family and group portraits, while also taking many fantastic, spontaneous, quirky and fun shots that truly captured our day. Diane did whatever it took to get a the right shots including laying on the ground or getting on a ladder!
And Wow! I love our wedding pictures! Diane is professional, thoughtful and has a relaxed approach. She is a great artist and a true find. We highly recommend her.

Diane was a wonderful photographer, we could not have asked for anyone better to have documented our wedding. She has an energy about her and brings it into all aspects of her work. She went out of her way to take the time to get to know us so that she could tailor her work to our personalities and needs. Diane was very easy to communicate with, asked great questions and really listened to our responses, she worked with us to provide excellent photographs of our wedding combining our desires with her experience, imagination, and more than considerable skill. She as well never grew tired of answering our questions which was great. She worked tirelessly on our wedding day to get every shot we wanted and many we had realized we should have wanted. We have a tremendous amount of fantastic pictures! She is also very flexible and responsive, we wanted a mix of photo journalistic and traditional shots and she was able to produce a large variety of both types of images. The quality and craft of her work are exceptional. I enjoyed working with Diane and have recommended her highly to friends who are getting married.

Diane was a joy to work with at our wedding! Her pictures are incredible, we couldn't have asked for more beautiful, expressive, intimate and artistic photographs to remember our special day by! She was super flexible too, incorporating a wide variety of shots, ranging from portraits and group/family photos to spontaneous ones where we didn't even know she was taking the picture! She does a really great job of being subtle and unobtrusive while photographing. Diane is thorough and professional with her work and yet she is sweet, creative and, to be honest, really fun to have at the wedding! I have been recommending her to anyone who is engaged and looking for a photographer with a personality and artistic flair!

Diane was such a find! I planned my New York wedding from Indiana where my husband and I currently live. We communicated mostly by email, and she understood exactly what we wanted. She was on board with the theme and style of the wedding from the very beginning, and was especially excited about my idea of taking photographs at a local carousel. I knew at the time she was taking some amazing shots, but when we received the DVD of all of our photographs we were blown away. The results far exceeded our expectations.

Diane's work is stunning. She made my wedding photographs looks like works of art. She's also extremely responsive and pleasant and, all-around, the exact person you want to have around you all day on your wedding day. Calm, non-intrusive, and creating some gorgeous, long-lasting memories.

We highly recommend Diane from Hudson River Photographer. We enjoyed every aspect of working with her from the first time we met her, to getting to know her at our engagement shoot and having her be a part of our wedding day. At our first meeting she was warm, inviting, and informative. In no way did she pressure us to make a decision to hire her, but we had no doubts that we would after meeting her and seeing her beautiful work. We really enjoyed our engagement session. Even though I was a bit nervous about having my photo taken, with all of the attention on us, she made us both feel comfortable, like she was an old friend. The photos came out great. On our wedding day she blended in really well and was not at all intrusive, like some photographers we’ve seen at other weddings. The photographs that resulted were absolutely stunning and will help us to remember the emotions from that day for years to come. Definitely choose Diane if you are looking for a stress free experience and high quality work.
