My story.

My love for photography began in high school with a film camera and hours spent in the darkroom. In 2012 when my oldest son ~ a United States Marine ~ returned from a deployment in Afghanistan, I bought my first digital camera to capture the joy of seeing him for the first time in seven (long!) months. Alas, my passion was reignited! When a friend asked me to take pictures of her family and senior pictures of her daughter, Diane Welter Images was born. To this day, I stay true to my "why" ~ to offer my clients high-quality images with the flexibility to use them as they choose.

I am a natural light photographer and my style is classic and timeless. I consider myself a creative, visual storyteller and I delight in capturing life's beautiful moments.

On a personal note, I live in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and have been married to my husband George for 37 years. We have three wonderful sons ~ Peter, Will and Jack ~ a beautiful daughter-in-law Taylor, and a furbaby named Beretta.

In other words...

“Diane, I couldn’t be happier with how this all went and these photos! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you through this whole experience! Thanks so much!”

“Thank you for creating wonderful memories for our family! We are so fortunate to have been referred to you!”

“Thank you again for all that you've done. We love the senior photos! You did such a great job that it was really hard narrowing down to 15 -- even after those extras you threw in as her sneak peaks! Svetlana ended up picking the image of her surrounded by flowers for the yearbook. It was such a lovely unplanned shot that really turned out so well. It seems like half of Eden Prairie seniors call on you for their senior photos, and I can definitely understand why! Thanks again.”

“So many awesome pictures to choose from! We are so happy about our experience and these pics! Thank you so very much! 😀”

“Thank you Diane! What a fun experience. Aidan said, ‘That was so much fun!’ He had such a great time and when he opened the proofs he was saying, ‘These are all soooo good!’ He was just ecstatic! His dad teased, ‘What a tough problem to have Aidan! Trying to pick your favorites from so many good choices!’ ❤️ We appreciate you capturing these moments for him.”

“Thank you very much! The photos are just beautiful. You have been wonderful to work with. Amelia & I have both enjoyed the whole process and appreciate all you’ve done.”

“Thank you Diane! Just love all of the images!”

“We are so happy with how all of Pita’s pictures turned out!! Diane is so amazing during the actual session with hand placement, correcting hair and jewelry if moved, as well as alternate hat/scarf options, and capturing the most perfect lighting... as well as after. She made the process so easy and fun and fast return of edited images. Thank you Diane!”

“Diane - I can’t say enough how much I love how Eric’s photos turned out! You did an amazing job capturing him! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️”

“Diane did a fabulous job with our daughter's senior pictures. She kept our daughter at ease and comfortable which made for a fabulous experience. We highly recommend Diane for your photography needs.”

“You have been wonderful to work with and we are so happy with the finished product! Cannot thank you enough!!”

“We worked with Diane for my daughter's senior pictures. She was so great to work with, and really spent a lot of time making sure we had the pictures we wanted. They turned out so beautifully, much better than I anticipated! Nobody can beat her price point, either.

Thanks Diane”

“You’ll love this ... on the way home his friend called and asked him what he was doing. He said, ‘I had Senior pics.


‘It was chill. Way better than I thought it was going to be.’”

“Diane did two photo sessions for me - of my kids and parents in our yard, and my daughter's senior pictures at the Arboretum. My husband and sons do not like getting pictures taken and she was so laid back that they actually had a good time. And the results were STUNNING. I can't recommend Diane enough - she's a kind, laid-back person who is incredibly easy to work with but also a professional and genuinely talented photographer and editor.”

“Diane has an amazing eye for detail, takes the time to find out about her client's vision and is open to any idea. Diane spent extra time looking for the right destination for my son's senior pictures and we found it! It was great not to be hurried and I enjoyed watching her creativity on the fly, those pictures are amazing! I really love all of his pictures and am grateful that Diane was able to capture the essence of my son's free-spirited personality in settings that he already enjoyed being in.”

“Diane took my senior pictures and they turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Thanks Diane!”

“Diane is an amazing photographer💞. I loved that she captured all the images I mentioned to her. She is excellent with kids has such a soothing voice and gets great shots of individual kids and our entire family!”
