      Engagement Sessions

      Curated Moments

      For us, the principal reason to have a portrait session is to register the beautiful love and relationship in a natural setting without it necessarily being in the wedding gown and groom attire. The engagement session is where you begin capturing your first family memories and it is priceless, more special than we can imagine.


      Rehearsal Dinner

      Happy Anticipation

      The rehearsal dinner is a great opportunity for your two families to spend time together before the wedding day in a slightly less hectic setting. Take advantage of the relaxed environment, full of happy anticipation — Our ultimate goal is to relieve some pre-wedding tension with the cameras and make everyone feel comfortable with the upcoming nuptials.

      Cost of Rehearsal Dinner – 2800 dollars 

      Fine Art Albums

      Meaningful Connections To Your Wedding Day

      There is something about holding a photograph in your hands. It connects you physically to the feelings of a time and place that an image on a screen can’t replace. That’s why your wedding album is so important. It is a tangible link to your wedding day. A beautiful hand-crafted fine art album is a permanent heirloom you will enjoy, share and pass down for generations. A meaningful connection to your wedding day that becomes more cherished each year.

      Delivery & Booking

      Where are you based?

      I'm based in Southern California and Portugal, but absolutely love world travel. If you're planning a wedding, no matter the miles from my home base, let's connect.

      Did you study photography?

      Yes! With a degree in photography and art history, I use an artful curated approach to create beautiful, light-filled images that evoke a sense of emotion and beauty. In addition, I value the opportunity to further my education by attending workshops each year to continue learn and refine my craft.

      How many weddings do you book a year?

      I personally take up to 12 weddings a year to ensure best experience for my clients. But there is no cap for our associate photographers. We typically get booked about 8 months to 12 months prior to the wedding date.

      How much does it cost for destination wedding?

      Destination and international weddings are my specialty! Because of my vast experience in destination weddings, I am able to offer one simple, all inclusive pricing for my destination clients. I also offer pre-wedding sessions, day after session, or rehearsal dinner coverage.

      What is a "first-look"?

      Your wedding day should be enjoyable and relaxing, not rushed. Seeing each other before the wedding is a wise choice for several reasons. You will get to have a romantic first meeting without all your guests watching and I can capture your first emotions of seeing each other in even more details. We will have more time for photos of the two of you and you will be able to have most of your photos done before the ceremony, It makes for a very relaxing day and more time with your guests.

      Do you have an assistant?

      I am the primary photographer on your wedding day, but I bring another photographer who assists me and may also shoot additional angles during certain points of the wedding day.

      How many images will I receive?

      For sessions, you will receive 60+ images.
      For wedding, you will receive about 75 images per hour that I shoot, depending on your wedding size.

      We want to book you for our wedding date, what is the next step?

      I am so honored you want me to be a part of your wedding! Once I receive a non-refundable retainer of 50% along with a signed contract, your wedding date is booked. The remainder of your balance will be due four weeks before your wedding date.


      AMAZING!! After months of researching for a wedding photographer, Diane's work caught our eyes and we couldn't be happier with our decision. Her style is natural, light and romantic which was exactly what we were looking for. She was always prompt and professional with emails from the beginning and went out of her way to make sure she captured our vision. She is also friendly and very patient which made the whole process a lot easier. Your wedding day goes by a blink of eye so when we received our incredible wedding gallery, it was like reliving our special day all over again. We are also glad we had an engagement session with her since it was a great way t get to know her and get comfortable in front of the camera before the big day. Diane is extremely talented and passionate about photography and it shows through her work. We had such a fun, wonderful experience with her and hope to work with her again soon.



      After searching through dozens and dozens of photographers online, I came across Diane's portfolio. I instantly knew she was the one I wanted to hire for my wedding. Diane is simply amazing! I can't say enough kind things about her work. She has a style that is so timeless, romantic, light and elegant. We had her capture our engagement and wedding and the photos are everything we could dream of and more. After such a wonderful experience, I would without any hesitation recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer!



      There aren't enough words to explain how wonderful Diane is. She is so talented and good at what she does. Her pictures are absolutely beautiful and she truly captures a style that is romantic, elegant, pure, and beautiful. On top of being an artist, Diane is very friendly and easy to work with. She communicates effectively and is very responsive. I have nothing but positive things to say about her. My husband and I love our pictures from her and can't recommend her enough! The next time we need professional pictures, Diane will be our first pick!
