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 on 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.
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!
