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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?!!)

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.

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!

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.
