Hi, I'm Diana. I'm a documentary wedding and portrait photographer. I live in West London with my awesome hubby James and crazy cat Frida. I am also super lucky to have second homes in Germany and New Zealand where we have family, so you’ll find me in those parts of the world quite regularly too.
I used to work in the charity sector in fundraising and communications for many years until I found my true passion - photography - five years ago, and haven’t looked back. I’m truly in love with story telling and using photography and film to capture life’s big and little moments. The last few years have been an incredible journey of meeting wonderful people from all walks of life, fun, learning and hard work to get to where I am today, and I’m more passionate about my work than ever.
I love working with down to earth, easy going people who have a bit of a sense of adventure and just want to enjoy their day. I adore nature, wide open spaces and quirky unusual locations, and working with these to create something really unique. I get excited about fairy lights, confetti, pretty flowers, shoes that I could never wear, rustic barns and industrial spaces, and love to capture every little detail perfectly. Photography and my business are pretty much my life (fortunately my dear James is very understanding!) and I give 200% to everyone I work with to create something really beautiful, unique and special for you.
To me, the most important thing is that my photographs are natural, beautiful and authentic and bring across what people are all about. When my clients tell me they looked through their album teary eyed, reliving a special moment through my photographs - well, it's the most rewarding thing ever!
If you haven't already, have a browse through my portfolio to get a better idea of my style. It would be lovely to hear from you.
A few words from my clients
"We have just received our wedding photos from Diana and WOW!!! They are absolutely beautiful. Booking with Diana for our engagement and wedding photos was one of the best choices we made for our wedding! Diana was so wonderful to work with. She was discreet and professional, but made us comfortable and somehow got us to laugh at all the right moments. The photos are so lovely and she captured the magic of the day perfectly. It is going to be hard to pick our favorite photos, as there are so many great ones to choose from!
We really can't recommend Diana enough to absolutely anyone who is getting married or for any special photos! Thanks again – we’ll treasure our photos forever."
- Vikki & Fred"
Where do I start?... I couldn’t have been happier with Diana... she was exactly what I wanted in a photographer! So professional, but yet so relaxed. We have the most amazing photos to remember our special day, along with the most emotional video! We will be using Diana for every other special event... Thanks for everything you did to make our day even more memorable.
Hannah and Jedd, Ware Priory
We would like to start out by saying how grateful we are to have had the pleasure of working with Diana. Diana had an infectious calmness about her and an unobtrusive approach which made everyone feel completely comfortable and this truly reflected in the sincerity of the moments captured on our wedding day.
Diana utilised the stunning grounds of the wedding venue perfectly which created a variety of beautiful backdrops to our photographs. We both appreciated Diana’s excitement and passion for wanting to take some photographs in the woodlands as this added an extra element of adventure and spontaneity to our wedding day.
Diana’s photography is storytelling in its purest form. The essential moments to all of the natural moments in-between are wonderfully captured to create memories for a lifetime. Our wedding photographs and album are truly everything we could have dreamed of.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Diana.
Mr and Mrs Peterson, Cain Manor
We absolutely love our wedding photos and Diana was such a lovely person to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process and on the big day!
It is definitely true what Diana said to my sister at the beginning of the day – I’m just like wall paper. As by magic she manages to take the most amazing photos without anyone noticing, making the photos so natural and beautiful.
We also found that Diana works really well under pressure and stays calm and focused when nothing else goes to plan. For reasons outside our control we could not get to the prearranged sites in Hyde Park where Diana had been visiting beforehand. So we had to go along with what we could find then and there, and truly, we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

We really enjoyed our engagement shoot with Diana. She is easy-going, very professional and is very good at spotting the best shots for you. She does very quick turnaround and our photos came out beautifully! We would recommend her to everyone.
Mokie & Tristan
“What an amazing photographer we had the privilege of working with! Diana made us feel as relaxed as we possibly could on one of the most nerve racking days of our lives. We were absolutely blown away with the photos we received from Diana, she captured the most special moments and brought out the magnificent beauty that was our wedding day. I tossed and turned over which photographer to chose for about three months, and I am so very happy with my choice.
Our pictures are more than words can describe and I am so happy with every one of them. Diana is incredibly talanted and I highly, highly recommend her to everyone and anyone that wants exquisite photos of their wedding day.”
Charlotte & Matt
Our photos were exactly what we wanted, light, vibrant and colourful. They really portray the kind of day we had, absolutely fantastic!
Diana was great to work with, it was really helpful that she visited our venues before the big day and was always on hand to answer any questions. On the day it was really reassuring to have her expert opinion on timings, allowing our day to run as smoothly as possible. As we were delayed returning to our reception venue she suggested doing group photo's whilst we waited, looking back now it was a great decision that saved us a lot of time.
Diana is great at getting pictures without you knowing, she moves quietly and professionally in the background. Also her ability to get images from all angles and be open to any ideas was perfect for what we wanted.
- Emily & Adam
Diana was the photographer for our wedding (as well as for our engagement shoot) and she was absolutely fantastic! Diana was friendly, reliable, organised and efficient. Her calm, professional approach helped our wedding day run smoothly and she put us at ease in front of the camera. Importantly, she is a highly skilled photographer and provided us with a high quantity of quality photographs that we love. We are very happy we chose her as our photographer and highly recommend her to others.
Yvette & Adam
We are so happy we chose Diana to photograph our special day. Since first making contact with her she has been a joy to communicate with and on the day she went out of her way to capture everything we wanted as well as having great instincts to catch special moments we weren't even aware of! We are stunned by our photos and know they are going to help us keep the memories of our wedding alive forever.
- Julie & Jeremy
“Thank you so much!!!!!!!!! The photos are everything we hoped for and more! They’re so beautiful! I’m not usually a fan of myself in photos, but the biggest challenge I’m finding with these shots is actually choosing my favourites, from so many amazing shots! We’ve spent the last few days sharing them with family, and everyone loves them. Thank you so much for getting so many candids of everyone - they’re stunning as well! We’ll do everything we can to recommend you to everyone we know!”
