My name is Diana Elizabeth. I'm a photographer, writer, graphic designer, model, and former journalist who had memorable days reporting from the LA red carpet for E! Online. Here I share my home life, work, and efficient lifestyle solutions.
My husband and I live in a restored 1952 red brick home that sits on a former citrus grove in Phoenix. I enjoy home decor, sewing and gardening. This is a glimpse into my life, travel, and work and the things that I discover along the way - with camera in hand.
Get In Touch
I had been looking forward to seeing these two since their cotton field engagement session. It was like being reunited with old friends again, with the wonderful treat of witnessing every minute of happiness during their big day. Emmy has impeccable taste – just peek at her Carolina Herrera gown and those Valentino shoes! The personalization and sweet details reflected so much of this couple – classic and romantic – and incredibly fun!
Camelback Mountain was the stunning background of the ceremony as the pastor recited the top five things the couple loved about one another. Immediately after the exchanging of the rings, it was time for the breaking of the glass which kicked off a laughter filled reception and ending with the Horah dance! Before I knew it, the night had come to an end. The day was that wonderful, that joyful, and that much fun. This is one of those weddings where I can honestly say, it was that beautiful, everything – the bride and the groom, the photos don’t do it justice. Excellent planning by Outstanding Occasions!
Thank you to Style Me Pretty for featuring this lovely wedding.
Now onto El Chorro!
Everyone loves a groom that gets down!

Diana Elizabeth thinks the best part was when the male guests realized they needed to lift the chairs and ran to throw off their jackets and said, “Let’s do this!” and proceeded to lift. Love Emmy’s expression!
