Stephanie and Shallum – 8th January 2022

Well after having a LONG break from weddings due to injuries (from shooting so many weddings) Stephanie and Shallum were our first wedding for the new year!

2022 decided to create havoc for us with Russ and myself having to quarantine with our little boy and so I didn’t get to be there for Steph and Shallum but the amazing girls Deb from Deb Saunders Photography and Kelly Champion stepped in to help a girl out!

Edited by myself, you can see from the photos that Stephanie and Shallum had an amazing day and even got in the water!

Stephanie and Shallum met in their youth group in Highschool and it has been true love ever since! Surrounded by their gorgeous children, the 2 of them tied the knot at Southport Beach – Port Noarlunga with blue skies infront of them and rain clouds behind them.

We wish you all the best in your blessed life together and Thankyou for trusting the team of photographers and myself in helping capture your big day!

Adam and Sarah – Family Shoot – October 17th 2021

 In October I met with the gorgeous Farrelly family for a sunset family shoot.


Little Oscar stole the show with his insistence to see the runaway sheep and the curious kangaroos that came to visit within the picturesque Onkaparinga Hills National Park.


Ashton and Kiara were the most perfectly behaved children I have worked with and we all had a few laughs as we watched the sun set.



Shoot Location: Onkaparinga Hills National Park

Congratulations Mel and Brett and Thankyou for having us as your photographers!

Laurel and Leigh – 22nd August 2021

We were back at St Francis for the wedding of Laurel and Leigh! In front of a few close family and friends and their children, they shared their funny but personal vows and it was lovely to see such depth and understanding in their written words to one another.
It was a fancy affair with guests arriving on a magic carpet to their Aladdin themed reception and the mystical purple hues captivated everyone!
Congratulations Laurel and Leigh and we wish you the most magical future together (with the VY Club Sport) 😛

Covid Update!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all well and keeping your head high through these covid times.

Being in the wedding industry we have been hit hard with most of our clients postponing their special days to 2021 and it’s filling up quickly!

This is why you have not seen any updates from me for a while. We have been very busy with day to day life and filling our days up with working on our socials, attending wedding open days and spending some quality family time together (whilst we have the time to do it!)

We just wanted to thank all our clients who have stayed with us and we feel for each and every one of the couples who had to postpone their wedding.

We wanted to make reassure you all that we are still here and are keeping strong as a business and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon!

Stay tuned for some updates on what has been happening between now and earlier in March – we still have a few photos we can share with you!

Take care! – Diana

Live FB Q & A Sessions coming up in 2018!


So an idea was put forward to me by a couple of clients. 

The idea was that I do some live FB videos explaining who I am as an artist, what my business is all about and answering FAQ’s and questions as a lot of the time, good proper answers to how a photographers works or how I work can not be transparently understood via email or what was on my website.

I agreed and to help educate my clients and have them gain a better understanding of who I am and what I can provide for them, I decided to do a test run on FB and did a live video of me editing a client’s photo.

The response was huge and I had over 25 people logged on and watching (well I thought that was huge for my little fb page) – including other photographers and after the live video finished, I had some great comments from people saying how much they learnt and could see how much effort I put into editing their photos and also had comments from other photographers saying that they had learnt little tips and tricks.

I am not a closed off person or business operator and will always help other photographers and believe truly in the power of networking so I have no problems sharing ideas with other photographers unless they try to blatantly copy my ideas or business model to a T, so again my series of videos that I am going to do is also going to be about creating some self worth for my fellow photographers aswell. 

Live video session dates

I will be doing a series of live videos where I will be answering questions that my clients have asked or would like to know every wednesday night. The first live video date will be on the 31st January at 7.30pm and then every consecutive wednesday after that and I will be answering 3 questions per night to get the ball rolling.

The first 3 questions will be:

1. Why photography and what do you love about it.
2. What made you start up your own photography business and do you think it’s been successful so far.
3. Where would you like to see your photography business in 5 and 10 years time.

If you did have a question you would like me to answer, then please pm me on my photography facebook page or email me at

See you wednesday!

Arielle and Joshua – 5th January 2018

The stars aligned for these 2 lovebirds when they met and together infront of family and friends, they declared their love for each other in the gorgeous surrounds of st francis winery.

Thankyou Arielle and Josh for having us as your photographers and we wish you all the best in your future together!


Stephanie + Luke – 11th November 2017

It was our absolute pleasure to witness the magical love you guys have for each other and we thought the Nerf guns were a “hit!”….

What’s been going on….

We haven’t posted for a while as we have been so busy this last month and with wedding season now finally here and in full force, we thought we better update before we don’t have time to!

Our latest wedding only last weekend was between Jodie and Adrian and was held on the stunning grounds of the Cruising Yacht Club of SA and what we thought was going to be a rainy day, turned out nice and bright and full of sunshine for us!

The day was full of love, laughter and the mention of Holden and footy multiple times as we had a gorgeous photo shoot on the Semaphore Jetty and on one of the spectacular yachts moored at the Cruising yacht club.

The night was finished with an intimate Father/Daughter dance that brought a tear to your eye and some pretty groovy dance floor moves had by everyone!

Congratulations Jodie and Adrian and we wish you all the best in your future together!

Coming up for us at DianaM Photography, we have our regular gig at the HWY Hotel with our social snaps, our Frocktober Event at the Hwy where they are raising Money for the Ovarian Cancer Council, we also have Engagement Parties, Birthdays and some more weddings  to be captured and from here until the end of December, we are going to be busy little bunnies!

If you have a special event or a wedding which you need our services for, then please contact us to secure your date as they are filling fast!

Nicole + Alex 19.08.17

What a beautiful day it turned out to be for Nicole and Alex’s Day!

Turning up in her dad’s vintage car (the one he arrived in when he got married), Nicole walked up the aisle to meet her soulmate in the surrounds of the ever lovely Gardens of St Francis Winery in Old Reynella SA.

Entering their reception to the Star Wars theme song, the scene was set for an unforgettable night with a beautiful lamington cake and some more theme songs from DJ Thomas McNally getting everyone in the mood to light up the dance floor.

Congratulations Nicole and Alex and we wish you all the best for your wonderful future together!

What a Busy Month! + Some Headshots!

The month of July has been mega busy!

I have finished off a heap of wedding clients photos and been able to present them with their beautiful album!

These albums are made to the finest quality with the binding of the book being stitched and not glued together.

A classy crystal cover finishes this exquisite album off and gives it that touch of elegance!

The look on my clients face when I handed them their wrapped album and they opened it was just divine and it totally makes it worth it. Every single time I do a wedding and my client receives their photos and tells me how happy they are with them, it makes it all worth it!

We also captured some corporate headshots in July for Money Quest in Mclaren Vale!

Annette Tothill and her talented staff were on hand to give us some cracker smiles and Alfie the Team mascot even came for his photo to be taken!

If you did need a Mortgage broker then I would highly recommend Annette and her team!

Contact her today!


We have also been steadily booking weddings for 2018 and are really excited to be a part of Love on the lawn Wedding Expo at Morphettville this Oct!

We will be showcasing some of the beautiful weddings we have captured in 2016-2017 and will also have our signature Stainless Steel, Mounted and Acrylic prints on show for you to touch and feel and see the quality for yourselves!

Come down and say hi to the team and you might even get to meet Katie who is doing work experience with us for the last half of 2017.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Get tickets Here!


We will continue to keep you updated with what is happening within DianaM Photography and we look forward to sharing a coffee with you soon!

Hwy’s new Native Creative Launch

I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the Native Creative menu that the Highway Hotel was promoting for the next 2 weeks only.

Some great food bloggers joined me including representation from Glamm Adelaide, Adelaidian and Feed Me Adelaide.

I was asked to take some photos so the Hwy could use some for their social media and for a taste of this wonderful menu, I was more than happy to oblige!

When I saw the menu, my first reaction was “oh dear, it’s got 2 seafood dishes”….because I don’t eat seafood but I thought I’d be brave and taste them anyway. The highway is renowned for it’s great food, so it couldn’t be that bad!

Dish 1: Moreton Bay Bug Tails with Pickled Riberry, White Carrot and Karkalla


For a non seafood eater, this was tasty!! Loved the texture and it didn’t taste fishy at all! The Karkalla added a nice flavour hit and the sauce was just devine! The white carrots were subtle but cooked to perfection and the Riberries added that nice tartness to balance out the sauce. Overall a score of 10/10 (for a seafood dish)

Dish 2: Seared paroo Kangaroo fillet with Muntries, Beetroot, Barilla Leaves and Puffed Grains.


Again…as I am a boring eater, I haven’t been exposed to kangaroo a lot either and my first thought was… yum..meat..I’ll eat it!

The texture and flavour in that kangaroo was just devine. The chef has cooked it very nicely and there was no toughness in it at all. The smoky flavour hit the tongue like a warm hug and then the beetroot came along and put the cherry on top. It was beautiful and sweet and not tart at all and worked really well with the puffed grains and the slight saltiness of them. The muntries I had never tasted before but they were another nice flavour boost. Lot’s of unique flavours in the one dish! Score 9/10 – Simply because the raw onion was a bit much. Maybe 1 would have been enough.

Dish 3: 500g Thornby Lamb Rump with creamed warrigal greens, saltbush and potato crisp salad


The lamb was cooked perfectly and had little fat. I understand that meat needs some fat to increase the flavour, but this was nice not having too much fat either and allowed your palate to focus on the meat itself more. The Jus was amazing and full of flavour, it was nice and full bodied and worked well with the asparagus. The potato crisps were little morsels of heaven and were nice and crunchy and not overcooked. Now…the saltbush! I could have eaten that all day! My first taste of saltbush ever and it was the most tastiest plant I have ever consumed. I am going to go down to Bunnings and grab myself a pot this week, just so I can grow some so I can eat it! Overall a lovely and well put together dish 10/10 – could not fault one single element in this dish

Dish 4: Robarra Baby Barramundi with native Ficinia Nodosa Bushes, Lemon Myrtle, Samphire and Native Thyme Butter



Unfortunately there was not enough to go around on this dish, so I missed out, which was more than fine as not being a seafood eater, I was more than happy to sit this one out although would have loved to have tasted a potato! The dish itself looked amazing and was so colourful. Very good value for money too as the meat that was coming off the fish looked full and fat with nice white fillets being served. The potatoes and the Thyme butter smelt so good. 8 – 10 – only because I couldn’t taste it so can’t comment fully

Dish 5 – Rosella Sorbet with Poached Quandong, Wattle seed tuile and violet sugar


I love desserts! I have to say…when I saw the sorbet on the menu I knew this was going to be my favourite dish of them all. I could literally live in a dessert cafe somewhere and so this just tempted my tastebuds to no degree! When the dish got served, the first thing I noticed was the colour. It didn’t look like a dish that would be served up in the colder months and reminded me of summer and spring and really looked rather beautiful in all it’s colourful glory. The sorbet was amazing! It was tart, fresh, flavoursome and sweet all at the same time and went off with a big bang! I have never tasted quandongs before and so was a bit hesitant to try them but after a few coaxing words from a friend, I ate one and it tasted to me like a tarty version of an apricot and was not unpleasant at all and rather nice. The wattle seed tuile was to die for and I could have eaten a whole box if given the chance. It was war,, it was wholesome and full of flavour and not gritty at all. Spot On! The violet sugar was another experience I have never had before either and although small was really yummy and wasn’t as sweet as normal sugar, which I thought was rather nice and worked well with the tart of the sorbet. A very nice end to the tasting and left my palate nice and fresh. Score: 10 /10


Overall the 5 dishes were very creative and beautiful and were almost works of art on the plate with the colours and textures displayed.

I can’t believe they are only going to be around for 2 weeks!

Make sure that you get in to taste these wonderful dishes.
