My name is Diana Elizabeth. I'm a journalist, photographer, graphic designer and FORD model who had memorable days reporting from the LA red carpet for E! Online. I love sharing my life as a creative professional and the things that I discover along the way - with camera in hand.

My husband and I live in a restored 1952 red brick home that sits on a former citrus grove in Phoenix. I love traveling, home improvement projects, sewing, gardening, and John Mayer and Twilight. This is a glimpse into my life and work.

I love this girl to smithereens, you’ve already heard me gush about her so many times when she’s in front of my camera (maternity, styled bride and groom shoot) so I’ll spare you.  Brenna and I are both signed the local FORD Models agency out here as actresses and print models.  You have have seen her in a AAA commercial, and Peter Piper Pizza – I know there’s more, there’s always more.  We were thisclose to being in the same commercial together many years ago for Blue Diamond Almonds but guess they didn’t want two brunettes together because we were in separate commercials, one day!

She took one of my online classes, a beginner DSLR course, excelled so quickly and just went crazy with her camera and gear – she is incredible!  So we decided we’d head out for a half day and just have fun walking around and shooting each other to update our online modeling portfolios.  Lots of giggles and fun, make sure to check out her photography page on Facebook! Love you Bren!

I met Jaclyn Rae Hughes over 10 years ago when we both competed in the Miss Arizona Pageant system – she sang so beautifully for her talent, I did the Chinese ribbon dance.  Heck to the yeah.  The Miss America Organization is a system I will always hold near and dear to my heart, having met so many amazing women at such a young age through that system.  Smart girls, motivated girls, well spoken, beautiful, good hearted, ambitious women that I am happy to be surrounded by.

Jaclyn and I kept in touch over social media and she’s a traveling nurse, now a wife and mama, that we decided to get together before she departed to Hawaii for the next 18 months (hubby Mike is in the Navy).  She’s a health and fitness coach, yoga instructor, wellness warrior, and she loves to share with others how to stay fit and healthy!   Find out more on her website and like her on Facebook to keep up to date on recipes and fitness tips.

Meet adorable 2-year-old MacKenna who loves to feed her mama fresh food and always says, “Thank you!” for everything.  What a doll!

Diana Elizabeth says seeing an old friend brings back some incredible memories.  There was a moment Diana said something and Jaclyn cracked up laughing and said, “Oh my gosh I’ve missed you.”  It’s the small things that can remind you of all the laughter and good times!

The best part of photographing your bestie is being able to be there during important parts of her life.  And when she’s married to an awesome guy who happens to have access to some of the most incredible vintage cars, well, our shoots get real fun every time.  In case you haven’t noticed, nearly every time we shoot a maternity we get a classic car in there (see baby #1, see baby #2), and yes, Meagan and Andrew have been expecting nearly every year since the first one came.

Baby Ardon is due on momma’s birthday, and he will come into a world full of loving parents, cute older brothers to play with, and lots of aunties and uncles and family to love on him.  We shot these on a closed Sunday evening at Sanderson Ford in Phoenix.

If there’s one social media outlet I’m most thankful for, it’s probably Twitter.

Geni and I started following each other a few years ago on Twitter.  Not even sure how, or why, but we started tweeting at one another.  We emailed a few times back and forth just saying hi, collaborating on ideas, and meeting over Skype to share marketing ideas.  By now you may have already heard of her, she’s the face of Sticky Albums, their ads are in photography magazines and recenly at Imaging USA.  She came to visit and stayed with me for a few days and as photographers do, we photographed each other.

Meet my darling Geni Bean, who actually will be a Mrs. this May!

For photographers who are afraid of shooting mid-day, we took these from around 11 a.m. to noon.  Proof that you can get some great images no matter the time of day.

Diana Elizabeth and Geni felt like they were old friends.

We met when we were 21 years of age in the lobby of the Wilhelmina Models LA office.  We sat there during an open call, right next to each other.  I thought with her exotic looks she was absolutely stunning.  On our way out of the office (after being denied but on the bright side we signed with other agencies), we became fast friends, figuring out the Hollywood life together.

Half Dutch and Israeli, Maayan has one of the most beautiful Hebrew accents.  She came out to visit over New Years week and we hadn’t seen each other face to face for years but it seemed as if we have seen one another every day.

She’s a real estate agent in LA, just closed a nice $5 mil deal with a superstar rapper that we all know.  She models occasionally and one night, I thought, hey let’s do a little shoot around the house.  No fantastic lighting really around but let’s find it around the house and see what we can create together in 15 minutes.

Here’s our little black and white series.  Come to think of it, I’ve never shown you an entire session in B&W.

The above dark wall images I had her sit against the charcoal wall with a nightstand lamp as the light source.

Then, I pulled the curtain liner in the living room to use as a backdrop and took a few of these…

phoenix-arizona-photographer-model-shoot-portfolio-diana-elizabeth-photography005 phoenix-arizona-photographer-model-shoot-portfolio-diana-elizabeth-photography006

Then headed to the dining room, drew my Pottery Barn curtains and had her sit on a stool and make some faces.

phoenix-arizona-photographer-model-shoot-portfolio-diana-elizabeth-photography007 phoenix-arizona-photographer-model-shoot-portfolio-diana-elizabeth-photography008 phoenix-arizona-photographer-model-shoot-portfolio-diana-elizabeth-photography009

All in good fun.

Equipment used: Canon 5D Mark III / 50mm f/1.2L /85 f/1.4EX.  As a reminder, if you’re a photographer, don’t edit your images to B&W using grayscale.  It’s muddy. Find a proper action or a way to adjust your tones.

Diana Elizabeth says you can still have some fun even with non ideal lighting.  You just need a light source, and a few good expressions!  Have fun no matter what time of the day it is, you don’t need the sun out, it’s just about light so find it!

I headed out to Buckeye which is about 40 minutes west of Phoenix to shoot a girlfriend of mine and her growing family.  Mr. Wonderful has always helped me with their shoots which has been so helpful to get the little ones to look our way.

Marla Wootan is one of the sweetest, giving, and lovable people I know, which doesn’t surprise me that my Ireland and London travel companion Melayne, is the same.  The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in terms of personality and looks, for that matter.

Marla’s mother was an opera singer, and she well, played the piano by ear until she was forced to learn by reading.  And that singing voice of hers, which sounds like a twenty-something jazzy little melody is down right soothing.  I listened to her latest album – which is the reason why I flew out to capture some images for it – hadn’t been finalized.  After I heard the first song play, I said, “Marla! This comes out of your mouth?”  And not in that rude way, but honestly shocked that I knew someone who could sing so beautifully.

She’s caught the eye of an industry pro and the rest, well, we’ll be watching her singing history unfold.

Stay tuned.

Isn’t Crystal Cove so lovely?  Every time I come back to California my heart just beats a little faster and throbs a little more to tell me perhaps it’s time I return home.

grayhawk-golf-club-wedding-arizona-photographer-chad-cara-dankberg-018

My tongue slipped and I called them “Chara” while we were shooting portraits, a blend, like Brangelina or Kimye.  A power couple name works well since Chad and Cara are such a duo, so perfectly matched in every way.  They love the same things, laugh at the same things, and their personalities are so incredibly laid back and kind.

Being able to capture this wedding was very meaningful to me, having known Chad since my sophomore year of college.  It’s an honor to not only witness a long time friend find his other half, but to spend 8 hours during one of the most important days of their life capturing it.

This wedding was full of personality and Jewish traditions (Ketubah signing, breaking of the glass and Hora dance) as you’ll see – from the adventurously fun couple, to their very outgoing entertaining friends, the entire day was full of laughter and a great time.  The best was a surprise impromptu song from the groom and his buddies, Top Gun anyone?  I don’t think I’ve laughed so much behind the lens during a wedding.

Big thanks to Ali and Jessica of Some Like It Classic for making the day go so smoothly, Justin of SKM Entertainment for an entertaining reception, and as always, a pleasure working with Serendipity Cinemas.

Chara, love you guys, congratulations!

“You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’” was probably one of the funniest things to see all the guys get into it. I was just told by the groom he sent a text out to his friends that morning for them to participate.  Love those surprises!

Take Silverleaf Club, a gorgeous venue, paired with a stunning couple, and the unparalleled talent of Angela Saban Design and you get the most breathtaking wedding as you’re about to see.

The fashionable bride wore a Monique Lhuillier lace gown paired with sparkly Jimmy Choo heels and her bridal party shined in their own unique dress.  The groom looked incredibly dapper in his three-piece Hugo Boss suit, even the guests looked like they came out of a fashion magazine.  The couple who met in the 8th grade and later reunited in college, celebrated their marriage into the late night with 70 family and friends from Canada. This day is that I’d call absolute perfection.

As always, it’s a pleasure to work with the talented Angela Saban, everything she touches turns to gold.  From taking such a fashionable and creative bride’s ideas and creating a unique cake, backdrop, and setting the entire ambiance, she creates events I never want to leave.  Lizzy Marsh and Vonn Wynn did a fabulous and fun job with the bride and bridal party.

Brad and Lindsay – it was difficult for me to say goodbye as I could have easily spent eight more hours with you both.  Thank you for allowing me to capture such a unique wedding and your powerful love. I am so grateful for your genuine kindness and friendship.
