You exceeded our expectations of what our photographs would look like. 

I cannot express how thankful we are for the moments that you captured at our wedding and also for putting together the beautiful slideshow of some of the best photos. You exceeded our expectations of what our photographs would look like.
Also -- I give you a lot of credit for pushing us to take photos after ceremony. Those are some of my favorite. You were so right when you said that those photos would create a magical moment encompassing the love and beautiful time of day.
 
We love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!

I love all the lights and colors! I love all the emotions!

THANK YOU!!!! I love every single one of the images!!!! You are absolutely amazing!!!! I love all the lights and colors! I love all the emotions! They remind me of the day of the wedding - laughs and tears. Just wanted to say thank you so much for being our photographer on our wedding day. All of our guests are impressed by your professionalism and they all told me that they could tell you absolutely love photography! Oh and everyone was impressed by the two cameras you carried! Thanks for picking so many wonderful places to shoot - I know Mohonk is pretty but you definitely know Mohonk way better and know where are the best places to go! And you know what kind of pics I like - gardens with sun shining through, flowers, sunset, rocks, and everything! Thank you! You made us feel so comfortable and be ourself throughout. I am going through the photos as I’m waiting for my flight in the airport. No matter how many times I look through them, every single time, I am wowed by how well you are able to capture all the emotions. O.M.G. You are the master of photography. Just wanted to send you a quick note and let you know how grateful I am to have you documenting our wedding! Thank you!!!

What an amazing gift you have given us. 

We simply don't know what to say.  For the first few weeks, we wondered if the wedding weekend had all just been a beautiful dream - but then we saw your photos and were reminded that it was indeed real and more magical than we could have possibly imagined!  What an amazing gift you have given us.  I only regret that it will take so long for us to decide what should go in the album - you've given us so many amazing moments to choose from!  Thank you for all of them.
MATT + EDWARD

Not only was she wonderful to work with but she is a true artist.

 It is easy for us to show how incredible 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!

MARILYN + MARK

They exceeded our expectations even after the amazing engagement session.

They exceeded our expectations even after the amazing engagement session. While most of the wedding day remains a blur, having your pictures actually has helped us to slow down the day and get to re-live each moment. Thanks for documenting the specialness of our day.

JORDAN + CHRIS

There are so many beautiful shots, its overwhelming!

 There are so many beautiful shots, its overwhelming! I think I am going to frame so many – people will think I am a complete narcissist! On top of that, you totally captured the feeling of the day, all of the memorable moments and told the story of our wedding. For that we are beyond grateful. We not only loved working with you, we loved your final product. thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

JESSICA AND BARRY

You gave us our best and most cherished wedding gift!

 Thank you so much for giving us a remarkably beautiful and moving collection of wedding day memories! We honestly cannot express to you just how much we appreciate your talent, your thoughtfulness and your commitment to our special day! You gave us our best and most cherished wedding gift: perfectly captured moments from the best day of our lives!

BRIAN + BRAD

THE MOMENT WE MET HER WE KNEW WE MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE.

We picked her based of reviews and website and didn’t meet her until 2 weeks before our wedding. After our inital photos with her and our bridal party/ family we didn’t see her the rest of the night…that’s because she is awesome at letting you enjoy your night without feeling light you have a camera in front of your face. She is so talented, kind and professional.

JESSICA AND BRIAN

You captured all the nerves, tears, and smiles in such a way that I was brought back to that day as if it were yesterday.

I knew from the moment I saw your website that you were "the one." I knew you were perfect and I knew only you could do exactly what I wanted...capture the day!
Absolutely beautiful!! The albums are amazing and perfect in every way imaginable. Each page tells a piece of our wedding day story and truly emits the raw emotion felt throughout the day. You captured all the nerves, tears, and smiles in such a way that I was brought back to that day as if it were yesterday. You have frozen a piece of time and invaluable memories for us that are beyond priceless. From the bottom of our hearts...thank you.
I literally started crying within moments of opening and looking through the album. I know...for a girl with a sailor mouth and tough exterior....I am a sensitive sap!  And, the surprise box was beyond beautiful and thoughtful. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I plan on having all three framed for our home.
Again, thank you so very much for being a part of our wedding.

WE HAVE ALREADY UNEQUIVOCALLY RECOMMENDED DIANE TO A NUMBER OF OUR FRIENDS

There’s a long list of things we loved about working with Diane at Hudson River Photographer.  To name just a few, we loved: the ‘engagement’ photo session where we got to know her so we’d be comfortable on the big day; the incredible photobook she designed for us; the way she blended in at our wedding and yet captured every important moment — she was somehow everywhere and invisible all at once; the simplicity and professionalism of her contract which included the delivery of DVDs with all the photos (and the DVDs themselves are beautifully packaged!) Oh, and of course: the stunning photos she took.
SARAH + ETHAN

DIANE AND HER WORK WERE BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS!

We could not be more pleased with our wedding photos and album!  Diane’s (Hudson River Photographer) photos have such a natural, gracious style that every time we look at our pictures, it tells the story of the day all over again.  She makes you feel relaxed and at ease which helps to capture your true personality and essence of the day.
JAMIE + SAM

OUR PICTURES ARE FANTASTIC – ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC

I found Diane (Hudson River Photographer) on the internet after numerous searches for a photographer in the Catskills area.  Needless to say, I loved her “eye”.  You could tell from her photographs that she had a wonderful way of looking at the world – fun and quirky and yet appropriately serious when needed.  We only met with her once before the actual wedding but she really got us.   Our family and friends have oooohed and ahhhed over them.  Best yet, after the big day, she’s continued to work with us and we’re very much looking forward to fantastic wedding album.
MAUREEN + JEFF

I FEEL SO LUCKY TO HAVE FOUND YOU

What can I say, your photos are breathtaking!  They take us back to the exact moment and feeling of our wedding day.    I am swamped in law school these days but Paul and I are eager to sit down and write a proper letter on your website about how wonderful you are and how everyone should hire you! It is a simple recommendation to give because you are simply the best of the best. Not a person who has seen the blog can get over how beautiful the photos are.
ELIZEBETH + PAUL

THE PICTURES ARE SO ROMANTIC AND PERSONAL AND EMOTIONAL

Diane, your photos never fail to amaze me. These are gorgeous–I can’t wait to the see the album!  I thought I’d share an email I got from one of the bridesmaids–it says everything I would but better, especially given that she didn’t write it with an audience in mind.  You are the absolute best! (From Brook’s Bridesmaid:  “These pictures are literally a fairytale. I have never seen you look so beautiful. You are breathtaking. The pictures are so romantic and personal and emotional… and totally capture the feelings of the event. I am so blown away. Are you just freaking out?!!)
BROOKS + FLETCHER

I LOVE YOUR INVENTIVE AND BEAUTIFUL COMPOSITIONS AND USE OF LIGHT.

I don’t think I took the time to properly thank you for the glorious job you did at Mary and Issac’s wedding last July.  I am finally putting together a book for Mary and Isaac, and it has been a deep pleasure to work with pictures that not only captured all the people, but captured the joy of the day.  … Thank you again for perfectly recording of what for us was a perfect day.
ADRIENNE (MOTHER OF BRIDE)

NEW YORK CITY CAN BE A TOUGH PLACE TO DEAL WITH WEDDING VENDORS, BUT DIANE IS AMAZING AND GREAT TO WORK WITH!

Diane helped us out of a really tight spot when our first wedding photographer cancelled on us with only a few weeks notice. She even cut her own personal vacation short to accommodate us on our wedding day! ….She is personal and relaxed, honest and hard working. Her photos came out PERFECT! I’m so glad we went with Diane. Diane is the type of photographer who captures honest moments and true personalities. I dont like to sit still for posed pictures very much. Our photos reflect how we felt on our wedding day- excited, happy and having a blast. Diane captured our perfect day perfectly!
ABIGAIL + CHRIS

DIANE IS INCREDIBLY HARD WORKING, ACCOMMODATING, WARM, AND SO, SO TALENTED.

When my wife and I first started to plan our wedding and looking for vendors, I was feeling a little bit nervous about finding ones that were LGBT affirming. I knew if our photographer wasn’t comfortable working with same-sex couples, the process would be miserable for us. When doing a search on the internet for photographers I found Diane’s Hudson River Photographer website and was blown away by the gorgeous high quality photos that she took. They are not only visually stunning and creatively artistic, but they depict tenderness and warmth in a way that really makes each couple’s love shine through. I was then so happy to see that she had photographed a same-sex wedding! We immediately called her up to meet her and see if she would be able to photograph our wedding. On our wedding day she was not only our tireless photographer, but also kind of a bonus wedding planner! She kept us on track and reminded us when specific events like cake cutting or tossing of the bouquet should happen so that she could get all the photographs we would want. We would have been crazy without her focus and direction that day. We are in love with our photographs and have a large 16×20 hanging in our living room to enjoy every day. Our friends and family still comment on our amazing engagement and wedding photographs and our lovely wedding album. We would definitely recommend her to any couples, same-sex or not, who want the highest quality beautiful photographs and to work with someone who is down to earth, thoughtful, and personable.
DANA + CYNTHIA

WE COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR A MORE PROFESSIONAL, WARM AND TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER.

We are so very appreciative of you and grateful that we were fortunate enough to work with you…. Your general calm demeanor was truly a blessing.  Our photos are absolutely stunning and we will treasure them for our lifetime together.  Thank you for being such a special part of our celebration and for capturing the immense warmth and love we felt on this day for us to revisit time and time again.
