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 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!

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.

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 !

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.

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.

I am an artist and when my husband and I were searching for a wedding photographer I did extensive research. I can’t tell you how many portfolios I looked at and how many websites I searched….. waaaay to many to count, but once I found Della Bella Photography my hunting stopped! (The photographer for our special day was so important that we booked Todd before we even had a venue or a definite date). Let me tell you…..Todd LOVES photography. For him, the camera is an extension of what he sees and a means to capture the physical as well as a the emotional moment. That might sound a bit out there, but a picture is just not a picture, its a very specific snapshot in time and Todd does everything he can to capture it the way he sees it and the way “you feel”.
