My name is Diana Elizabeth. My husband and I live in a restored 1952 red brick home that sits on a former citrus grove in Phoenix. I'm a journalist who went from writing about fashion and reporting off the LA red carpet to a photographer and FORD model. When I'm not behind or in front of a camera, I enjoy blogging about my home projects, and the things that make me happy with camera in hand.
I appreciate old homes, love adding fruit trees to our yard, and I firmly believe making a house a home is a wonderfully fun ongoing project. I'm bravely jumping into the domestic life hoping one day I will bake a homemade pie so I earn my badge. This is a glimpse into my life and work.

I was thrilled to see Stephanie and James’ wedding featured on Style Me Pretty last week! It got me thinking about a pretty popular question I’ve been asked.
“How do I get my wedding featured in a blog or magazine?” I know I wanted mine to be featured and I was happy with our wedding photographer Ryan Ray told me me and Mr. Wonderful would be in Style Me Pretty, see it here.
Before I begin, I want to emphasize that there are a LOT of factors that determine which weddings will be taken by blogs. Some include:
Things that you, as a bride can do to increase your chances of your wedding getting featured:
That really is it. While it sounds simple enough, it isn’t a guarantee, or that easy. Every wedding is a case by case basis with many factors as I’ve mentioned above. I don’t guarantee to any of my clients that their weddings will get featured – and I only submit my strongest.
So remember, just because your wedding doesn’t get picked up by a blog doesn’t mean it wasn’t beautiful or special or that your vendor team didn’t try their hardest. It can be a multitude of reasons that are out of your control. Nonetheless, please don’t put so much emphasis on the success or weight of your special day just because of it. After all, your wedding photos on your mantel should be your most prized display of all.
Diana Elizabeth says she is leaving one hot place to go to another next week. From PHX to LAS, it’s girl time to watch one of her friends compete at a national Mrs. United States pageant. Time to lounge by the pool, eat crazy buffets and reminisce about the pageant days.
I’m Diana Elizabeth, named after Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth. I'm a lover of photography, flea markets, gardening, and God. Follow me as I explore the domestic life.
