About Della Bella

Welcome...Congratulations on your Engagement!

I am a full time wedding photographer based in Connecticut. I love traveling, hiking, diving, and the ocean,
but my passion, lifestyle, and career is photography.

PAS•SION / noun: an intense emotion, or a compelling enthusiasm and desire!

CRE•A•TIV•I•TY / noun: the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness.

Photography has been my passion ever since my first camera in high school. It has taken me all over the country on many weddings, assignments and projects. Passion is a word I would like to touch on, because it involves much in my life, and it is what I strive to capture on your wedding day.

I have explored many different paths in photography in my life, but capturing passion, love, and emotion on your wedding day gives me purpose in life. The timeless spontaneous moments can be looked back on through the generations of your family, and that gives me much pleasure. I’m all about capturing the genuine, fun, and unique love that you two share.

Every wedding shoot creates a new opportunity to meet new people, explore ideas and locations, to improvise and draw out all of my photographic experience to capture those special moments. It is a true privilege to be hired and trusted to capture the most precious memories from your wedding day.

Shoot me an email and let’s start the journey to create some crazy,
romantic, and unforgettable moments together!

From Our Amazing Couples

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 was a pleasure to work with! He listened to our wants and concerns and was very good with the challenges that can come with photographing toddlers, which was important to us as our 18 month old was a big part of our day. Todd was prompt, had great follow-up, and was reasonably priced. We ended up with beautiful pictures that captured the moments and emotions of our wedding day!

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.

Todd was very accommodating and very committed to his work. A true artist in my eyes. He was also a lot of fun. Multiple comments from groomsmen after the wedding talking about how much fun it was working with Todd.

From our first contact with Todd he was very responsive, courteous, and easy to deal with, and he continued to demonstrate those attributes throughout the course of our daughter’s wedding. He was very creative and responsive to requests made by the bride and groom, both before and during the wedding. Our wedding was a very small affair, immediate family only, and Todd and his assistant integrated into the party like family!! It was an absolute pleasure having Todd as our wedding photographer and I would not only use him in the future but also highly recommend him to anyone else. And the best part, is the photographs are gorgeous!

Todd and JoJo are the very best of the best. Going into it, we knew we needed a wedding photographer with whom we could be comfortable and be ourselves. We wanted someone who could not only capture beautiful photographs but who cared about getting to know us and capturing “us”. We did our engagement shoot with Todd and JoJo and knew from the start that they were exactly who we were looking for. They made things so easy, coming prepared and being receptive to our questions and ideas. When it came to preparing for the big day, Todd met with us several times to talk logistics. He cared about understanding what was important to us, and also played a critical part in helping us prepare for the day. Todd has wealth of experience and knowledge, as well as an attention to detail second to none, resulting in an ultimate product which is beautiful. We LOVE all of our wedding photos, from our portraits to our first look to all of the wonderful candids captured throughout the night. We could not have been happier with Todd and JoJo and highly recommend them.

This man is amazing. We had a really complicated wedding. He was everywhere and at the same time almost not noticeable. I would recommend everyone to use this service. Tons of experience and top notch images. He is the best. This is the one to hire if you want everything to go smoothly and focus on your big day!!

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!
