Hello there + Welcome! You've made it this far, I hope you've enjoyed scrolling through my work!
I'm Diana, so excited to get to know you + capture your beautiful life memories. Have a look around and enjoy - I photograph different stages of life progressing from individual portraits to engaged couples - newborns and families.
I love creating that relationship  from the start + seeing the beautiful family grow through the years.

My photography journey began in 2010 as a hobby (obsession) but progressed from portraiture to photographing my first wedding in 2012 and have loved it since then! I've had an interest in everything cameras even since childhood in Bucharest, Romania - my father always had his film camera and I'm so thankful I have my own memories from that time because of him. I hope to provide that same , more in-depth, documentation of a life " growing-up " for you + your family as well. I lived in Charlotte, NC for 12 years and relocated to the Atlanta, GA area at the end of 2017 after graduation + my wedding. Though I am now based in Georgia, most of my clients that I've had for those 7 years are in Charlotte so I do travel back often! 

I am a UNC Charlotte (N.C.) 2017 Alumni with a  Bachelor's in Fine Art with a concentration in Graphic Design + Economics and definitely had my share of "photo" classes. Though I do have the technical training, I do believe my drive to be self-taught from the beginning - before college - has helped me with a more "real-life" approach + understanding of photography. It's not always about the perfectly posed moments and I hope that comes across in my portraiture - I'm definitely laid back and want to be genuine with you; I might not be the right photographer for everyone because of that fact and it's OK.

My favorite category would have to be " THE engagement " - couples in LOVE! There's just something special about that time in life - engagement sessions are crucial to the wedding process - I think it's beneficial to have the same photographer through your journey + that's why I include them complimentary in my wedding collections! I love spending the day with my couples and going somewhere beautiful where we can hang out, get to know each other and better prepare for the wedding day - by the end of the session you'll know how I work and will be better prepared + COMFORTABLE with me for the big day! 
I do also adore simple lifestyle family sessions. I love that genuine time between parent + child and being able to document it more than just "posing" but the in-between interactions/moments.
This is all we'll have to look back on, frozen moments in time that are etched in our memory. 

Feel free to reach out with any questions , if you're interested in a session with me or would like to inquire about my wedding packages! I'm open to travel and would LOVE to more often, I adore the west coast - specifically Seattle, WA and hope to visit more often (check out some of my recent sessions from the west coast in my "Destination" tab). I'd love to travel for your adventure session + definitely have my own Bucket List of Destinations that I would waive travel fees for (woo!).

I can't wait to hear from + get to know YOU!

XO ,
