Diane DeRay & Amber Simcoe are thrilled that you are considering them to be your photographers.

They 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.

What a lovely thing it is to be a close knit photography team; with your aims, goals, and shooting styles so in tune that you are still going strong after 12 years in partnership. This is the story of Diane and Amber of DeRay & Simcoe; best friends, partners in good humour and excellent wedding photography, and ‘capturers’ of golden light and moments.

Amber and Diane say they are ‘noticers’ – they notice those photographic moments that are often fleeting but important, at the same time never losing sight of the hero shots that make up your story. They are also often helpers with their trusty sewing kit at the ready, calming unsteady nerves when stress gets the better of you and negotiating tricky situations.
