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

The-Roughland-Estate-Norfolk-Ct-Wedding-Photography

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!

fantastic experience. Todd is awesome, very nice and passionate in what he’s doing and very easy to work with.
We had our engagement photos with him, and I absolutely LOVE them. And I can’t wait for our wedding pictures
Mona & Mark Saint Clements Castle Portland, Ct. Wedding

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 have to start by saying that from the very beginning, Todd has been such a wonderful person to work with. Very down to earth, relaxed, confident. Which is so important, when the bride to be is secretly panicking on the inside. The day of the wedding, through chaos of getting ready, earrings not fitting right, dying of thirst, Todd and his assistant were there to help and guide us through it all! I was so lucky to have found him, he loves his job, and you can tell in his work. Plus, he laughed at my sarcastic jokes! If you want a reliable, professional, amazing photographer, Todd is your guy!

Farmington Club Wedding

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.

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 Tood 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!

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.

Albert & Elizabeth The Candlewood Inn Brookfield, Ct.

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.

Brittany & Joerg Saint Clements Castle Portland, Ct.

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!

Alison & Rob Beardsley Zoo Wedding Bridgeport, Ct.

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 !
