wedding awards received by diana deaver weddings


Please see below a portion of all the kind words we have received from the wonderful people we had the honor of photographing  in the last 8 years. Please also feel free to also check out the reviews Diana Deaver Weddings has received on The Knot and Wedding Wire.

Lauren and Brendan- Married May 2017
Choosing Diana Deaver for our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made! Words cannot describe how impressed we were with her and we absolutely love our wedding pictures. Diana was extremely professional and personable throughout the whole experience. She made sure that we got all of the pictures that she asked for, and she went with the flow when plans were changed slightly. She was extremely fun to work with and the groomsmen loved working with her second shooter, Nick. They felt comfortable with him and had fun taking pictures that they wanted before the ceremony! Diana has a way of working with light and emotion that is amazing. We were in awe when we got our pictures back and saw all of the emotions that she captured on our big day. The ceremony pictures blew me away. I was not expecting to see so much emotion in everyone’s face, mine, my groom’s, the wedding party, parents, and even wedding guests. She really did a great job of painting a complete picture of what the ceremony was like. Every time I look at the pictures I feel like I am reliving the ceremony! We also love the reception pictures. Not only are there fun pictures of people dancing, but she and Nick did a great job of documenting almost everyone who was at the wedding! The pictures of the groom and I are amazing. We love that we were able to take pictures in different settings, and at different times throughout the evening. Diana was able to capture amazing moments between us and had great ideas of what we should do for unique pictures. The joy and love on our faces is clearly evident and these are pictures that we will cherish forever! I want to print them all!!
Jene and Delbert- Married April 2017
When searching for a photographer for our Charleston wedding, we wanted technical expertise, professionalism, and CREATIVITY…Diana encompasses all of these and MORE. Her eye for detail is priceless; she beautifully captured the most precious moments including subtle emotional expressions between us and our guests. Diana is truly gifted and her passion translates directly into her quality of work. Our engagement photo shoot with Diana was also amazing. She helped us feel comfortable and confident and the photos exceeded expectations because of it. She continued to deliver on our wedding day. Above all, Diana is trustworthy. Her integrity as an artist gave me the confidence to feel more relaxed on the day of the wedding; knowing she would capture each special detail. Planning a wedding is hard work and partnering with Diana was one of the best decisions we made. On a technical note, she is very knowledgeable and doesn’t rely on cheap techniques and short cuts – her work is of the highest quality. There is life in her photography. Post engagement and wedding, I am forever grateful to Diana for her gift to us; which is ultimately a gift for my future children and generations to come.


Karen and Wesley- Married October 2016
I cannot say enough good things to capture my adoration for Diana Deaver Photography. I knew I loved her style of photography from her portfolio but to actually work with her was the most fun experience. She made sure to sit down with us over coffee to get to know us so that we would have an organic relationship and the pictures would have a better outcome. She was right. As we walked through Charleston for our engagement session there was no where she wouldn’t go to get the perfect shot. This included alley ways, rooftops, climbing over the wall of the battery at low tide for a beach shot… And all along she built our confidence and brought out the best of our relationship. The photos were phenomenal!! When our wedding came, she felt like part of the family and the way she captured our big day was breathtaking. Her use of light and focus allowed for the most romantic pictures that all my friends melt over. From the ceremony to the sunset, nothing was missed. I mustn’t leave out her partner Mark who was there from the beginning of our journey with Diana. He was a great compliment to her and their friendly competition of who could take the better shot made us feel like rock stars! She was incredibly prompt with our 7 day return on our wedding pictures with the sweetest letter to us. I am going to use her for all the major events in our lives to come, because she is such an amazing person inside and out as well as an incredible photographer. Thank you, Diana, for not only capturing our most favorite memories, but for enjoying the ride with us. You made it an amazing experience.


Megan and John- Married August 2016
We are absolutely in awe of each stunning photo!!! We could not be more pleased with how y’all captured our wedding day so perfectly! We love the lighting and color of each photo and the attention to details and moments! The slideshow is absolutely wonderful too! We can’t wait to continue to look through these more and for all the years to come! We can’t thank you and Mark enough for all your hard work and are so impressed to have these back so quickly!


Cristina and Drew-Married November 2015
We cannot recommend Diana Deaver enough!! She is more than a photographer; she is truly in tune with others, making her talent seem effortless. She made the entire process so simple, from beginning to end. Diana and Mark captured the most beautiful photographs of our recent wedding in November. They captured moments and emotions. Friends who could not attend the wedding have been in awe, commenting on how the photos actually made them feel like they were there. Some photos capture once in a lifetime moments so well that they have even had many in tears! You want to look back on your wedding day and remember the beauty and awe of every surrounding detail, and she accomplishes this! You can’t go wrong!

Lora and Alex- Married Jul 2014

From the first time I saw Diana’s website, I knew I wanted her to be the photographer for my wedding and she exceeded all of my expectations. Diana is very professional yet down to earth and easy to work with. She was always patient and helpful with all of my questions. Most importantly, Diana is fabulous photographer, but her photographs speak for themselves. Together with her wonderful partner, Mark, our wedding day will always be remembered with so many timeless shots. I know our children and grandchildren will be admiring Diana and Mark’s work for generations to come!

Anna and Mike- Married Aug 2014
Diana and Mark were such a joy to work with! We felt at ease with the two right from the beginning at our first meeting, where we sat and talked all about our expectations and plans for the wedding. We met again a few months later and did our engagement shoot, which was SO much fun! The wedding was no different; we both felt incredibly at ease having them there, and the pictures certainly did not disappoint. Both my now-husband and I got a little choked up when we saw the pictures for the first time after the wedding – they captured the pure joy, love and emotion of the day. Many of our friends and family commented on how gorgeous the pictures were from both the engagement shoot and the wedding – these two are both so talented and really have an eye for taking beautiful, timeless pictures that we will treasure for years to come. We would definitely highly recommend them to anyone looking who needs a photographer (and not just for weddings too!).

Diana and Mark are absolutely amazing at what they do. I literally just saw examples of their work on the internet and knew they had to capture my wedding. Their style and lighting blows me away everytime I see anything new from them. Also I loved the initial meet and greet. I felt so at ease knowing they were goung to be my photographers on my special day. My photos are breath taking and I got them exactly when Diana told me to expect them. Great photographers and people!

Brendan & Danielle- Married June 2014
We are more than pleased with the images. I (Danielle) spent days going through all of the photos. Also, thank you for saving my dress with a safety pin after the bustle broke. I realized in the begining of your shooting that you would be more than a photographer that day. You were a confidante, friend, and someone to help calm nerves.

I love Diana!!!! She was amazing! Very nice and professional. She had great ideas for photos and made you feel very comfortable. I send out request from 5 different photographers and she was the only one to respond back with in 24hrs. She helped us plan our wedding time to get the best pictures. She charges by the hour and works with you and your budget to get the best bang for you buck. If I have need a photographer again, she is the only one I would use! Thanks Diana for capturing our memories that we will have forever!!

I LOVE WORKING WITH DIANA! Notwithstanding the quality of her product she is a consummate professional. In a day filled with moments of chaos and joy she provides a centering influence while allowing us to enjoy every minute. In a city that is home to a lot of great photographers she has a singular talent that is unparalleled.

Hi! So, our book was waiting for us on the porch when we got home from work last night…what a WONDERFUL surprise! We couldn’t ask for anything more beautiful and well put together. It summed up our day just how we want to remember it. You truly have an eye for the most beautiful shots. The trees, the sunset, all of the people you captured them all in their beauty. We noticed too the page of flowers and server tray (thanks for that : ) ) Thank you so much for helping our memories last a lifetime. We are both so happy we had you there to capture these moments! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! I can’t wait to show off our book and find its little place on our coffee table for years to come!

Sweetie, you outdid yourself! We are  truly blown away by your work and how you captured us as a couple.

You chose just the right pictures and told the story perfectly. We will pass your name on to everyone!
