Your wedding is one of the most special days of your life. It is a memory that you, your partner, your family and friends will cherish forever. This is why choosing a wedding photographer is probably one of the most important decisions you will make in preparing for your big day. Della Bella Photography specializes in not only capturing weddings, but in telling the perfect love story as each couple envisions it, through exceptional photos and videos. What you get is not just a documentation of your special day, but beautifully crafted memories to last a lifetime.
I would highly recommend Della Bella to anyone. Todd listened to what we wanted and offered excellent ideas. He was very professional every step of the way and you can tell he really knows how to frame a shot. We received our photos in within a month after the wedding– and we love them!
Todd was amazing! He went above and beyond to make sure our photos were exactly what we wanted. Todd spent time with me before the wedding, scouting locations and putting together a timeline to get all the unique shots I wanted. Not only did Todd deliver, but he went over and above to get us our dream wedding photos! I would highly recommend Todd as a wedding photographer, especially for those looking for unique, candid shots!
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.
I have used Todd not only for our wedding but for 2 other business shoots. I am always pleased with his work. His attention to detail is second to none, and he always delivers and gives you exactly what you are looking for. Todd comes highly recommended, you won’t be disappointed.
We did an engagement shoot with Todd and he was the photographer for our wedding. He did an amazing job for both events and we are so happy we picked Della Bella Photography. Todd has great vision for how couples can pose for photos and gives really clear instructions to help you get the perfect shot. The photos turn out amazing and they are so much better than what you can come up with on your own. Todd is also very responsive during the planning process and easy to work with even if you have changes leading up to the wedding day.
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 used Della Bella for my photographer for my wedding and I am beyond happy. We were on a tight budget and Della Bella was very reasonable. Not only was the price good but we had an instant connection. We told him we didn’t want many pictures of our guest we wanted more of us and our families and our bridal party. Which I met with a few photographers and Todd was the only one who wasn’t judgy and snotty when I said that. He was understanding and really wanted us to be comfortable and love the photos. Everything with Todd was just easy which when your under wedding stress that what you need! I can’t say enough good things. He was on time, he took charge during the chaos and he sent me sneak peak photo a few the week of our honeymoon and than some more and he sent our final photographs a month after our wedding. Which is so quick alot of my friends didn’t get back their photos for a few months. I was so please with the photos and I am very critical of myself in photograph but I LOVEDDD how I looked since he is so talented !
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 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!
