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

My husband and I booked Todd as our wedding photographer and we are so glad we did! He is professional, punctual, and passionate about what he does. He took stunning photographs throughout our entire ceremony and reception–we could not have been more pleased with our final gallery of pictures! He is so easy to work with and our package we very reasonably priced. I especially loved his strong attention to detail and his consistent dedication to providing us with the exact shots we wanted. He is also very versatile; he will adapt to whatever style of wedding or photography you would like. If you are looking for a superior experience and product, look no further than Della Bella Photography!

Immaculate Conception Waterbury, Ct. / The Litchfield Inn Wedding / Raquel & Rui

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.

Beardsley Zoo Wedding Bridgeport, Ct. / Alison & Rob

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 Della Bella is an awesome photographer! He is professional and prepared, and takes the time to get every moment. The candid shots were breathtaking. This guy rocks!

Woodacre Farms Terryville, Ct. Wedding / Allie & Eli

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!

He was so detail oriented, creative, and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best pictures to have forever from our day! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.
