“Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies.”
Diane Arbus

I’ve been a storyteller and lover of stories most of my life.

Diane Stredicke

Growing up in a suburb of Seattle, my childhood was a typical middle class suburban existence. My bike was my horse, my street was my playground, my friends were the characters in my stories.

I moved to New York with a degree in Theater & Graphic Design, studied film at NYU. I’ve worked with film editors, directors and writers, designed websites for non-profits and Fortune 500 companies. I’ve spent my life working on story and design.

Ten years ago I moved from Brooklyn to Rhinebeck, NY. I shifted gears and starting photographing weddings. I live on 3 acres with my wife and our two rescues: Zoey & Fig.

Things i love:

My wife, my dogs, the movies, ukuleles, cherry pie, bird watching, a first snow, a California sunset, browsing at a local bookshop.

Hobbies: Making birdhouses, building ukuleles (well trying anyway!) and learning the banjo.
