We are Diana and Daniel Newman, and we own and operate DVN Photography
Diana was born and raised in Saint Petersburg Russia. At a young age Diana discovered her passion for and skills with digital photography and photo editing. Diana’s mother saw her potential for photography from photos taken on their old Polaroid and bought her first camera which was a Canon EOS 500D also known as Rebel EOS T1i. This is an entry level DSLR but for a fifteen-year-old girl living on a farm in Russia it was the whole world. Diana quickly became immersed in her photography and soon began to make some money doing it. A few family photo sessions here, some pet photographs there, and she was able to save up enough money in about a year to buy her cherished Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a professional 17-40 mm Canon L Lens. From here she began to do many wedding and runway shoots and everything in between, to the point that she could not keep up with the demand for her work. All of this was before Diana turned eighteen years old.
Daniel was born in Toronto and has lived around Toronto ever since, save for a time of less than a year living in Saint Petersburg Russia. Daniel’s love for photography was given to him by Diana when they met and she showed him all the wonderful things it can do. The pair often work together on a typical photoshoot affording clients shots from a different angle to capture that perfect photo as well as peace of mind knowng that there is always a second camera and photographer in case anything happens during the shoot. Daniel also handles the business and website aspects as well as both of us working on the editing of photos after a shoot.
