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! I live in TX but got married in Ct. and he really made the process easier! Todd is definitely very responsive and such a great support during what can be a stressful time! He took amazing pictures, got them back to us in a reasonable time and had fun with us.

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!

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!

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”.

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.

If you’re looking for the wedding photographer of your dreams, you’ve found it with Todd. Seriously, stop looking and BOOK this guy NOW! My husband and I cannot even begin to explain how unfathomably satisfied we were with Todd from 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.

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!
