Dionne is probably my most favorite vendor from our May 2009 wedding. She is so talented, creative and a true professional. When we first got engaged, I booked her a week into planning and never looked back. We immediate felt so comfortable with her and were amazed by her talent and warm personality.
I have gotten so many compliments on the moments she captured and it seems like every day, I find a new favorite picture. We got around 1300 pictures back from our wedding and it took around 7 weeks to get them all. It was worth every cent we spent and minute we waited to see them. I wish we had more wall space in our house to display more of them. So many just look more like art than screaming "This is us on our wedding day!!!". Which is exactly what we wanted. Our album is a piece of art in itself and of such a great quality. I have not seen an album as nice or nicer than ours since.
Hiring Dionne was the best wedding related decision we made. If she is available for your wedding, run, don't walk to book her! You will not be disappointed.

When my husband and I sat down with Dionne for the first time, we knew after only 5 minutes she was the photographer for us. Her warm, funny, outgoing and caring personality was unlike any other photographer we had met. Our engagement session proved all this to be true and we also had incredible photos that proved we made the right decision. On our wedding day, we had even more fun with Dionne. She made everyone feel comfortable and was so kind to everyone involved in the wedding. She captured every moment so beautifully I could not have asked for anything better. My husband and I, along with our families, are so in love with the pictures. I have received so many compliments and I owe it all to Dionne. I will always be able to look back at my pictures and remember every detail of the most amazing day of my life. She is truly an incredible photographer and even more incredible person. Thanks Dionne! You are truly the best!

There were two things that my husband and I researched near and far for-- the reception hall and the photographer. We opted not to have a videographer as we tend to look at photos more than pop a video in, and Dionne's talent and eye were exactly what were looking for. She captured the magic of the entire day, from the big moments to the intimate ones. Every time I look through my album I am RE-LIVING the day, not just remembering it. And the "money shots" she got are just absolutely breathtaking that are on display in multiple homes now. :)
She caught all the moments without being noticed, yet provided a calming, experienced presence. I knew after meeting her and seeing more of her work that by just telling her what was important to us in our preparation session and e-mails before hand that I would not have to worry about certain moments or people being missed-- I was able to just enjoy the day, not worry about did she get this shot or that?
by far the BEST investment and we get compliments to this day about the photos.
The fact that I can feel the emotions of the day when I look at the photos I think speaks volumes.

I don't know where to begin, so I will start at the beginning. We stumbled across The Shooting Gallery on The Knot when we thought our search for the perfect photographer was hopeless for our February 2010 wedding. We happened to look at a wedding on The Knot that had pictures that were shot by Dionne at The Shooting Gallery and knew we had to have a meeting with her. I would say within the first 5 minutes of sitting down with Dionne we knew she was the only person that could tell our love story from the engagement shoot to our big day. We had our engagement session on a sunny winter day with snow on the ground, and Dionne captured my fiance and I beautifully. Not to mention all the creativity surrounding her shoot. She is a true artist and captures every moment between to people in love. The wedding photos were unbelievable, they were unique in every way, but told the story of our big day perfectly. The attention to detail before the wedding, during the wedding, and of course after the wedding in our photo book design by Dionne are priceless.
I will close off my review by stating that Dionne has now shot our engagement session, wedding, newborn pictures, and family portraits. We were so lucky to have stumbled across her on The Knot and hope that everyone can have as great of an experience as we did!

We hired The Shooting Gallery based on a glowing recommendation from a friend, and I am so glad we did! I love all of our pictures so much, I look at our album all the time, and it is like I am reliving the whole day. Dionne captured so many of the special little moments (a kiss on dad's cheek, a smile from grandma) in addition to getting gorgeous shots ofnthe big ones (first kiss, first dance), every shot is special. We ended up spending a bigger portion of our budget on pictures than we originall planned, but it was worth every penny, because I am going to cherish those images forever! Thank you Dionne!

From the first meeting, to the last shot of the night, Dionne is amazing! She really knows how to capture images that are true beauty. Loved the prints. Hands down, best photographer in town!

Dionne is one of the greatest photographers I've ever worked with. I have never felt more comfortable during a photo session. She did our engagement pictures as well and I couldn't be happier. She takes the time to edit every photo to ensure they are the best they can be. She is more of a photo journalist and not your typical point and shoot photographer. She has a creative eye that allows for breathtaking work. I absolutely love her - not only is her work amazing, but she is so fun loving and easy to get along with.
