Hi,
I was just trying to draw a Feynman diagram for ψ' to [itex]χ_{c}[/itex] states. So we have a electromagnetic transition. I feel tempted to just have c and [itex]\bar{c}[/itex] coming in and letting a γ leave from one of the legs. But that looks like an incomplete Feynman diagram to me. Maybe I have to get two photons out? Can someone help me with this please!

You need as many photons as there are photons in the final state. Feynman diagrams for electromagnetic decay of hadrons are a bit boring, as the interesting part happens in the QCD binding which you cannot include in that way.
