Diana Ascarrunz Photography
If I could give Diana 10 stars I would. Hiring her as our wedding photographer was the best decision we made, and I'm so happy we found her. She is so laid back and easy to work with, but also gives good instructions and helps you to pose without looking too "posed." She has a knack for capturing the best moments, I felt like she was in a million places at once during our wedding-she didn't miss a thing! All of our photos bring out the personalities of us, our families, and our guests. Looking through our photos I feel like I am transported back to our wedding day, and I think that's the best you can hope for in a wedding photographer.
Travel is included. I'll take care of all my own travel arrangements.

Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
I document all kinds of love and diversity is important to me. Bring me all your wild ideas for photos and I’ll bring my camera. I’ll be the calm and supportive one on your wedding day. I’ll also be the one googling where to get the best ramen and where to find the best scenic views the day after and you’re invited. I love traveling for weddings and finding couples who resonate with my work.
Why do you want to work with APW couples?
APW couples want their weddings to be fun, chill, magical, joyous, and full of meaning.
What is your artistic approach to weddings?
I have a balanced approach. I come in with a plan but I don’t let the plan interfere with what is happening naturally. I love to let things happy organically but I’m always available to help give direction and help things stay on schedule when needed.
More than anything, I want you to enjoy your wedding day and keep things stress free.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
- Making new and complicated recipes/being a foodie
- Finding the best ramen in whatever city I’m in
- Rewatching Veronica Mars and Parks and Rec for the 1000th time
What's your favorite movie?
- Before Sunset
- Darjeeling Limited
- The Royal Tenenbaums

If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
It’s so hard to pick just one song! I’ll go with Graceland, the album.
I am so glad that we went with Diana for our vow renewal! She is talented, professional, and an awesome lady to boot! We received our photos inside of the timeline she said to expect, and they are fantastic! She captured some moments I was too busy and frazzled to even realize had happened the day of. I highly recommend her.
Diana made our engagement photos such a fun and relaxing process. She helped us loosen up by talking to us about our relationship, laughed along with us as we told stories, and also gave us great direction because we just don't know how to pose for photos. They turned out beautiful. Diana truly captured our love for each other. She made us feel comfortable being intimate with each other in front of a camera (no easy feat!) and I am so happy to have these photos that will last a lifetime.
Working with Diana was one of the most stress-free parts of our wedding (which, with ~150 guests was not without some stress...). She and the second photographer Amber were beyond professional. Diana voluntarily came out to visit the venue site before the wedding, to get a sense for the layout and to plan where the family and friends and couples shots would be. For our engagement photos, she was more than accommodating, even going so far as to let us re-schedule the second half of the shoot so that we could take some time to unwind in the midst of a crazy pre-wedding week of logistics. The photos came out beautiful, and represent the most intimate moments and important relationships that we wanted to be captured. The lighting and composition is creative and gorgeous. I'm grateful that I'm not planning a second wedding right now, but if I was I would ask to work with Diana again in a heartbeat!
Diana is AMAZING! She is professional, makes you feel comfortable and is the kind of person that you want to be best friends with. We had an intimate Christmas wedding and did all of the planning within a month or two. Diana was very responsive, which made things easy. We hoped for an outdoor wedding but the weather had something else in mind. It was near freezing and the rain fell and fell and fell. I was disappointed about having to move the ceremony to the covered patio at our venue but I was even more disappointed that we would not have wedding photos with the beautiful landscape as a backdrop. Diana made it work. She was a total trooper and stood out in the cold, pouring rain to take photos. And despite all of that, she offered to meet us at the venue a couple of weeks later so that we could get some photos around the property like we had hoped. It was below freezing at that point. Did I mention that she's a trooper? The photos from the wedding day ended up looking magical and unique with the rain falling in the background. Both days were dark and gloomy but the pictures certainly were not! She sent a lot of photos, which I appreciate because I am all about the memories that pictures hold. I want to put them all over my house! She provided such a variety, everything from classic wedding photos, funny moments, really intimate genuine moments and some details that I would have never thought to capture. Everyone has been amazed at how beautiful they are. I'm happy that I can pull out an album and every aspect of our wedding will be right there at my fingertips to relive.
Diana was ABSOLUTELY an amazing part of our wedding experience. She is professional, down to earth, very kind, and very easy to work with. She reminded me of a close friend and I felt very comfortable through all our photo sessions. And on top of all that, her work is breathtaking! My hubby found her photos (without realizing who the photographer was) and I was brought to tears with how sweet and loving the moments looked. At every photoshoot she showed up with a plan but also left room for us to be creative and "in the moment." She gave direction, pointers, (and marriage advice) all while helping make the shoot natural and authentic. You will not regret letting Diana be part of your wedding experience; she's an amazing person and truly talented at what she does.
Diana is the best! As a photographer myself, I was very worried about who would take MY wedding photos. Thankfully I found Diana who will not only thoughtfully photograph your special day but also become a great friend. Her calm personality is a breath of fresh air. I was 100% confident in her work and it was such a relief to not have to worry about her capturing our day the way I envisioned it. I loved the vast selection she gave us in our gallery – especially the intimate special moments of our family that I will forever treasure. Diana is very talented! p.s. As a latinx couple it was also very important for us to have someone who photographs culturally diverse weddings. I can't say enough about how great she was with our family.
Diana was, by far, one of the easiest vendor to book for my small, intimate wedding. She responded to all my questions quickly and kindly. Her work is amazing, and she did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. On the day of my wedding, I was so anxious/excited/nervous/etc, and Diana's presence was extremely calming.
