Diane does a fantastic job, I have been to a few photographers around the area with my children and when I was pregnant as well. Diane is the best so far, in fact I don't plan to look any further.

Diane did a fantastic job; she takes the time to get to know her brides. Diane was always there at the right moments to capture the beautiful candid moments of our wedding day. She did a wonderful job integrating our requests with her creative style that created amazing pictures of our day. The amount of images from the day blew me away. There were so many favorites to choose from.

Diane and her staff are such a treat to work with and amazing photographic artists! She was the FIRST thing we decided on for our wedding! After my now-husband and I saw her photography when he was the best man in another wedding she shot, we knew she was a fabulous photogrpher. We were interested in an artistic and fresh approach to wedding photos. Diane captured all my favorite memories just as the sun was setting over the water and even stayed later than planned after we had to delay the wedding timeline for guests to arrive. The most AWE-inspiring shots are from our morning after or "Mr. and Mrs." photos. I was not interested in traditional bridal portraits, so Diane gave us the option to take pictures the next morning after the wedding. We chose to get up early when the sunglight was just gleaming over the water.... it was SO worth it! All of the photographs, from getting ready to the very last one reflected Diane and her assistant, Gillian's patience and experience--the whole time my husband and I were laughing and enjoying our selves! Diane is very professional and will work to adjust her packages for your interests. Our family and friends continue to compliment how beautiful all the photos are from the Facebook slideshow Diane created. We just received our custom thank-you notes included in her packages with one of our favorite pictures of us from the wedding---we can't wait to send them out!

There are nothing but great things to say about Diane McKinney Photography. My husband and I often say that our wedding would just not have been the same without Diane! She was 8+ months pregnant but still bending over backwards to make everything happen and it was just PERFECT. Thank you so much, we will never forget it!

Diane McKinney Photography is awesome! First of all, Diane was very responsive and flexible. In my case, she was flexible in scheduling different dates for my portrait when the weather would not cooperate and when I was making decisions on which pictures to use for a portrait or for prints. Through the whole process, Diane was kind and understanding. She contributed to making my wedding day calm and fun rather than stressful. In addition to all this, I absolutely LOVED my wedding pictures and portrait pictures!!! Diane and Gillian were both at my wedding and they both did a fabulous job! High quality pictures and they captured all the right moments that I will cherish for a lifetime!!!! You can't go wrong with deciding to go with Diane McKinney Photography!

The best decision I made while planning my wedding was to hire Diane. She was professional and knew what she was doing every minute of my special day. She was very organized, full of energy and made taking pictures a blast! The pictures were produced very fast after the wedding and look amazing. And my wedding album was absolutely GORGEOUS-I've seen a lot of my friend's wedding albums and they are nothing compared to what Diane made for me! :) She is absolutely fantastic!!!

Diane is phenomenal! From the professionalism when we first met her, through our engagement photo session at Duke Gardens, to the preparation of our slide show for our rehearsal dinner, to our wedding (!!!), Diane was truly there and committed to us. She was always on time, eager to help, and of course took AMAZING photos! At the wedding and reception, she was there to take every shot we wanted but always did so without being in the way or interfering in the action. My husband and I still look back through our photos with wonder, amazement, and joy and look forward to sharing them with our two sons. Thank you, Diane, for helping preserve lasting memories for us!

Diane photographed our engagement photos, bridal portraits and wedding. She is absolutely amazing! She??s very professional and excellent to work with.

She understands the needs of the brides and works extremely well with them. Diane has a great personality and this trait is one of my favorite things about working with her! On the day of the wedding, the bride is under so much stress and Diane is great at distressing the bride and not giving her anything additional to worry about!

Our photos were uploaded in a very timely manner ?? before we even returned from our honeymoon. We received our prints in less than 3 weeks from the wedding.

All of our friends and family that have viewed the online galleries have raved about how great the photos look! Diane has a great eye and very talented. During my bridal portraits she found so many neat places to shoot ?? such as the wine cellar in Barclay Villa. It??s one of my favorite portraits! She has great techniques to make sure everyone looks their best ?? especially the bride!

I highly recommend going with Diane for your next wedding. Be sure to do the full package and get the photo guestbook. All of our guests complimented us on how unique the photo guest book is.
