The woman behind the lens at diana Marie photography, i am your nashville wedding and lifestyle photographer.
Hey there! Since you are trusting me to capture these special moments in your life, I figured you should probably know a bit about me, right?
I am a Huntsville, Alabama native, but moved to Nashville after graduating from the University of Alabama in 2013. ROLL TIDE! Although I consider Nashville home, I am anything but a homebody. I love traveling and exploring new places (especially the food at those places!). I even studied abroad in Italy, which let me tell you, was a food lover's dream.
Speaking of, charcuterie boards and wine are my love languages, but also coffee is a necessity. I also have a slight addiction to chocolate (especially Reese's).
I have always felt like an old soul trapped in a millennial’s body. I would rather listen to Frank Sinatra than anything on the radio today.
Even though I am an old soul, you will most likely find me on the dance floor at weddings! I grew up dancing, so it’s no shock that I will have my camera in hand, snapping away while dancing along to whatever the DJ is playing!
I’m a true crime addict, and have listened to more podcasts than I can count. It truly fascinates me! So if you are a Murderino, we will be instant friends!
As far as what I am like as a photographer? Well I love taking away the anxiety of feeling awkward in front of the camera. Trust me, I know how weird it feels, but I promise, we are here to have a good time! Be prepared to get a little active during our sessions too because movement is my favorite. I am not here to be your photographer for just this little time together; I am here to be your friend that documents these moments alongside you!
My dad is the reason I started my business, well one of the many reasons. In 2015, he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia. I quickly learned that I would more than likely not get certain moments with my dad that others would. I wanted to be able to capture memories and tell stories, because you never know what life throws at you. I want you to have memories for years to come even after your loved ones are no longer around. Eventually all we have left of our loved ones are photos to look back on and that is why I do this. My dad passed February 2021 and lost his battle with FTD and because I will not get those moments with my dad, I want to be able to capture your memories and tell your stories. I want those memories from your day to be frozen in time for you to look back on for many years to come, even after your loved ones are gone.
is too good to be
of the soul,
Friendship, like the
