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

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!

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 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!

Beardsley Zoo Wedding Bridgeport, Ct. / Alison & Rob

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!!

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!

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!

I would recommend Della Bella Photography to all our family and friends!

Todd was fantastic. We enjoyed working with him before and at the wedding, and were so happy with the photos he took. It’s now six months later and we love looking at our pictures. He has such a good eye!

Maritime Aquarium Norwalk, Ct. Wedding / Jessica & David

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!

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.
