Todd is an incredible and creative photographer. He was very professional and responsive from day one. All of our wedding photos are amazing and Todd went above and beyond to make sure he captured every special moment during our wedding. I would recommend Della Bella Photography to all our family and friends!
Todd did such an amazing job with our wedding photos. They came out gorgeous. His price was very reasonable compared to others we had inquired, and his work was top notch. You can tell he really loves what he does. He was also very responsive, we never had an issue getting ahold of him or a response back, something we heard others had issues with their photographers. The best part is that we had our photos in about 3 weeks after the wedding…This is unheard of. We loved our experience with Todd at our engagement shoot as well. The weather wasn’t the best, and Todd did a great job! The photos came out wonderful, and we received them in a timely fashion.
I am an artist and when my husband and I were searching for a wedding photographer I did extensive research. I can’t tell you how many portfolios I looked at and how many websites I searched….. waaaay to many to count, but once I found Della Bella Photography my hunting stopped! (The photographer for our special day was so important that we booked Todd before we even had a venue or a definite date). Let me tell you…..Todd LOVES photography. For him, the camera is an extension of what he sees and a means to capture the physical as well as a the emotional moment. That might sound a bit out there, but a picture is just not a picture, its a very specific snapshot in time and Todd does everything he can to capture it the way he sees it and the way “you feel”.
Todd was excellent and the photos came out better than we could have dreamed. He met with us first to show us his portfolio and go over what we were looking for. Anytime we contacted him leading up to the wedding, he was very quick to get back to us. The day of, he showed up on time and ready to go. He worked with us to get the shots we wanted and was very thorough and detail oriented when taking each photo. He took a nice mixture of formal portraits and relaxed, unposed pictures to show off every part of our day. He worked very hard and we couldn’t have asked for anything more!
Move over James Brown, there is a new “hardest working man in show business,” and his name is Todd Della Bella! Book him now! As an amateur shutterbug, I know the difference between a good photographer and a good wedding photographer. Todd is a GREAT wedding photographer.
If you’re looking for the wedding photographer of your dreams, you’ve found it with Todd. Seriously, stop looking and BOOK this guy NOW! My husband and I cannot even begin to explain how unfathomably satisfied we were with Todd from Della Bella Photography.
Todd is professional in every sense of the word: timely, communicative, kind, generous, personable, hard working and has an amazing artistic vision which he carries out beautifully. I am an artist myself in the theatre world in New York City, so personally, I was looking for a photographer that I could not only connect with, but who had an artistic eye and vision for my theme and Todd NAILED IT. I recently received my shoot proof gallery and my husband and I are blown away. The work came out even better than we expected which is almost impossible!
Todd did an absolutely amazing job as the photographer for our wedding. He took so many great creative candid photographs! We were very pleased with his expertise in choosing modern poses, capturing spontaneous moments, and utilizing the best locations at our venue. His assistant Paula worked in unity with him complimenting everything as well, and paying attention to all the details. He directed us effectively into the right poses and we really appreciated his patience during the group photos. Additionally, he was always available during the post production process and in choosing the style of our album after the wedding. We are so thankful and would highly recommend Della Bella Photography!
Todd was a friendly and professional photographer who went out of his way to make sure our wedding day was captured perfectly. Todd met with us in person for over an hour to discuss our vision for the style of photographs we wanted. He was very accommodating to specific requests, taking into account our “wants” and “do not wants”. He offered guidance as to what kinds of poses and styles we wanted without pushing us into preconceived or cliche poses. He took care to learn the names of all family members and wedding party members. His samples were beautiful, and the photos he took for us were just as good as the samples. His pricing was excellent, and the quality of his photos equals or surpasses those of photographers who cost double or triple the price. As a same-sex couple, it was important to us to choose a photographer that was sensitive to the unique dynamics of a same-sex wedding. If Todd had never photographed for a wedding of two men, we would not have known. He was very at ease and treated us as if we were any other couple. Rather than making assumptions he asked respectful questions about what we preferred as a same sex couple. He did not refer to our wedding party as the “bridal party” as other vendors did. What made the greatest impact on us, other than the high quality of his photos, was that he was very aware that certain poses of opposite-sex couples clearly do not suit same-sex couples. He never asked us to pose in a “bride and groom” style photo and was careful to not impose any kind of assumed gender roles. In all, Todd was wonderful to work with and took fantastic photos. We give him our highest recommendation. Todd – thank you for capturing our day. Through your photos we will always remember our wedding as vividly as the day it took place.
