Diane DeRay & Amber Simcoe are thrilled that you are considering them to be your photographers. These two friends have been working together for more than 10 years, taking elegant, natural photos you will love and will cherish for a lifetime. Their discreet wedding photography style allows you to enjoy your day trusting that they are taking candid moments that you can relive for years to come.
Diane & Amber's philosophy is to create photos that will bring moments alive in your mind as they happened on the day. Their friendship and shared love for their families underpins the commitment they apply to their portrait and wedding photography.
They are friends who share common interests in photography, fabulous food and spending time with their families. Diane has one girl, a gorgeous little redhead with a zest for life, while Amber has two boys, who love to teach her how to build lego castles and blanket forts.
These besties extend their friendship to you on your wedding day. They can often be found bustling bustles, lacing, zipping and buttoning dresses or whipping out their emergency sewing kit to save the day.
I was fairly disappointed with the amount of 'frameworthy' photos my husband and I received from Deray and Simcoe. There wasn't a lot of direction given when it came to the poses and it showed in the lack of good photos we received. On top of this I was hoping for a photographer that was fun and easy going but I found Diane to be a little abrasive on the day which is certainly not the demeanour you want in a wedding photographer. A wedding is a very important and special occasion and you want a photographer that is going to make taking photos a fun and happy event for the bride and groom. For the money that was spent we expected better from Deray and Simcoe.
Deray and Simcoe Photographers were absolutely amazing. In the Cathedral during our mass, we did not even know they were there! They were extremely respectful and made us feel comfortable from the beginning. Our photographs are just wonderful and they have provided us with memories which will last forever.
