Testimonials

Kerry & Sayon


"Diana is everything you could want in a wedding photographer, or photographer in general. We would recommend her to everyone and everyone who sees our pictures wants her card! She made my husband and I so comfortable in front for the camera from the start of our engagement session that we didn’t have to worry about anything from then on. Not only is Diana great at getting all the shots, but she is a pleasure to be around and got us through all the family and wedding party photos as quickly as humanly possible. 10/10 You won’t regret it."

Ellie & Nick


"Five stars across the board. In the lead up to a wedding that we didn’t know was possible, Diana was extraordinary at every step. She and her husband, Kendyl, came to our 7-person wedding with so much great energy and led the charge to get tons of amazing photos in just two short hours. We really couldn’t thank Diana more for capturing our very special day better than she did. And for sending us our photos while still on our honeymoon! You won’t go wrong with DAM Fotografy!"


Laura & Andrew


"Before the wedding, we did the engagement session and for me, it was perfect to know her better and feel more comfortable in front of the camera. After just a couple of days, I received the photos and I was so glad that I chose her. The photos were amazing and exactly what I was looking for.

On the wedding day, I wasn't worried at all cause I knew she would do a great job, and she did it! The photos were stunning and she was able to capture all the love, the beauty, and the happiness from that day. I look at the photos and I can relive all the feelings again, and that's for me its what makes Diana an amazing photographer."

Jasmine & Terez


"Diana took our engagement and wedding photos and our experience was just the best! We consulted via email and she met us in DC for engagement photos and in MD for wedding photos - she was on time and quick! She offered suggestions for shoot locations and times. We had a short shoot time on the wedding day but you would never be able to tell - she got the most amazing shots before/during/after the ceremony. Her pricing is fair as well and she got the images back to us very quickly! They are High-Res photos that I used on our website, wedding memory book and I have printed some for the house - they all look great. I would recommend DAM Fotografy to everyone!"

"Diana was amazing! She did great work! We changed our date so many times due to COVID- 19, but she made sure she would be there! We will definitely have her for all special events in the future!"

Roz & matthew


"Diana was wonderful to work with! She was punctual, positive and so flexible despite our last minute schedule changes. She did both our engagement and wedding photos and we’ve received so many compliments on both. Would definitely recommend!"

Marjorie & Steven


"Diana did such a great job on our pictures and we she was an absolute pleasure to work with. Very professional, flexible, and she has a great artistic eye. She captured the best moments of your wedding and reception and we barely even noticed she was there. She was very understanding of our needs and really came through. And she finished our pictures very quickly! (I have heard so many horror stories of pictures taking a long time or photographers losing them altogether.) We highly recommend her to anyone!"

Kee & Simeon


"We knew going with Diana would be the perfect fit for us. From our engagement pictures to our wedding day, her attention to our needs as well as capturing such a beautiful moment was amazing. Once we received our pictures back we were left in awe at what we saw."

Marissa & Nehemiah


"Diana is an amazing photographer and her friendly personality makes it easy to relax while being photographed! She is professional and timely, we loved having her for our special day!"

Helen & Daniel


"In person she is sweet, kind-hearted, and determined to get some great shots. I would strongly 10/10 recommend Diana, and if you are on the fence about finding a cheaper photographer- go with your gut with D.A.M Fotografy because her hard work and artistic skills will give you amazing photos that will forever bring you back to your special day. That alone is PRICELESS."

Cara & Cameron


"Diana is such a joy to work with! We actually switched to her and were so happy we did. She gives great direction, which we learned very quickly is an invaluable quality. She is fun, quick to respond, and very flexible. I would post all my pictures if I could. We loved the photos and they arrived well under her proposed timeline. You won’t go wrong by choosing Diana. Her prices are excellent, she is very professional, her work is stunning, but most of all she has the best personality!"
