a little about me

I'm usually a woman of many words. But I hear that doesn't work on websites. So I'm going to keep this somewhat short. 

On our own wedding day we had a negative experience with the photographer whom we chose to capture our beautiful big day. This has shaped the way I have looked at wedding planning, especially when it comes to your photos.
 

My desire for any wedding day that I have the honour of capturing is that you do not have to worry about the relationship between you and your photographer. You do not have to worry about when I get there, what I will capture, how I treat your family and friends, and even your vendors. And most importantly, you absolutely do not have to be worried about when I say goodbye.

I pride myself on a stress-free experience and go to great lengths to make sure that you don't find out about your flower girl's missing shoe or the fact that the flowers haven't quite arrived yet. My own experiences have taught me not to sweat the small stuff when it comes to me, but I will definitely do that for you on your big day.

As a mama of four kiddos, my organizing abilities have stood the test of time. As an Enneagram 4, I quite literally "take an artistic, romantic orientation to life, creating a beautiful, aesthetic environment to cultivate and prolong personal feelings." (Taken straight from the Enneagram Institute website.)

The Four Joys of Our lives

Your wedding photography team

According to our #DVIcouples, we are "the most talented photographers you could ask for," "amazing at our jobs," and "just a little quirky." We'd say that sums up how we would like you to see us as your wedding photographer. 

Just because our kids are aged 9, 8, 6, and 3 would make you think I'm in my thirties... But, nope! I'm still in my twenties. Bertus is 3508 days older than me. Or 9 years and 7 months if you'd like to see it that way.

Dianne captured the brightness of our day even in the darkest of weather! She is an artist who puts her heart and soul into images that reflect the spirits of the people around her. Working with her was stress-free, as we were confident that she had considered everything necessary to create meaningful memories of our wedding day."

Emily & Mark

Dianne's attention to detail and patience with me as an extremely low maintenance bride were so helpful. She captured the wedding day so well - we received SO many compliments on the photos! I would definitely recommend Dianne as your wedding photographer!

Hannah & Craig

Dianne and Bertus were a major component in making our wedding a flawless, memorable event. If you want expertise, quality, and over-the-top creativity -- not to mention just having a blast of fun -- look no further, book with them as soon as possible.  

Hannah & Aaron

We were looking for a photographer, but we weren't expecting to make great friends too!  Thank you for making it so enjoyable and easygoing, we feel blessed to have had you there!

Cana & Jose

Dianne is a delightful photographer, and she made both our engagement session and our wedding day an exciting and amazing experience! My husband and I would recommend her to capture anyone’s special day!

Meaghan & Kevin

Dianne and Bert really have found their calling, not only as a gorgeous couple of photographers, but as motivators and mood-lifters. I can't say thank you enough. This wedding truly would've been nothing without them. Thank you!
