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

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 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.

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!

Todd and his team were great! We really wanted to enjoy our wedding but we also wanted great photographs of the event and Todd delivered! From the get go he built out a timeline right on the phone with me, which set me at ease and built great expectation of the day! He even let me see a couple of them as we were shooting and they were GREAT! We got all the shots we wanted and still got to enjoy our wedding!! He was there early and late! We got the photos back really fast I was shocked they are all great!! So many people posted how beautiful they came out. I’m so glad I chose Todd hes a real professional and he knows what he is doing!! We are going to cherish these photos forever!! Great Job Todd and Team!!

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 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!

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.

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!

The Webb Barn Old Wethersfield, Ct. / Jennifer & Jesse

We had our engagement shoot with Todd back in October and it couldn’t have gone better! Todd and JoJo were great about making us feel comfortable and really captured us as a couple. Before the shoot Todd took the time to meet with me for over an hour to show me his portfolio. I knew right away he would be a good fit for us. I can’t wait for Todd and JoJo to shoot our wedding next summer!
