We were married at Tunnels Beach,Kauai at 6:30...AM!
My favorite wedding photo is one of me dancing the hula...a surprise wedding gift for Erik. The shot captured epic blues and whites as well as the intimacy of the moment.
Dianne met us at the beach and had everything with her, ready to go. We were so excited and nervous! Dianne was there on time. She is such a professional and even helped me with my dress. We had fun running around doing the candid action shots on the beach. She also got some sweet portraits creatively using the veil.
Our package included Dianne coming to the site for a 1 hour shoot and a DVD of photos. We had access to the photos online. Some of the photos were nicely enhanced with effects.
We were able to talk to Dianne before the day of the wedding. She is knowledgeable and confident about taking pictures on the beach and had helpful tips on lighting.
The previous three days were rainy however, on the morning of our wedding the skies were blue with pillow-y white clouds in the distance. Dianne's skillful and creative style captured all of the gorgeous colors of that precious moment.
So grateful to have her a part of our intimate ceremony.
Marie and Erik Brandsen
What was your favorite wedding photo? I have to pick just one? I love them all. The pictures of me and my groom on the beach at sunset will be displayed in my house forever.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Dianne really gave us little direction. She just let us 'go with it'. We were so happy and excited, we just did what felt natural. You can tell in the photos that we are relaxed- not awkward or posed. Dianne took so many great candid shots that reveal the emotion of our special day. It allowed us the opportunity to experience the wedding day through a different perspective.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? A CD of images, two photographers, a meeting before the wedding to look at album options
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Dianne was so accomodating. Because it was a destination wedding, we were very anxious. We felt that a lot of decisions were out of our control. I am sure my father annoyed her with his constant emails and phone calls. Even so, Dianne welcomed us into her home (not once but twice) to look at album options and other weddings she had shot. She made us feel so comfortable. She came to our wedding site during the rehearsal to meet everyone. She quickly felt like part of the family.
After the wedding, Dianne stayed in contact with us and did a terrific job helping us narrow down photos to create an album. I am so glad we chose Dianne for our wedding photography!

What was your favorite wedding photo? I love all the photos Dianne took of us for our 20th anniversary. We loved the ones one the rocks with the ocean in the background.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Dianne stays in the background and lets you just act normal. She does not have you pose alot but takes pictures of our interaction.. She also helped us with ideas for action shots and she did portraits also.
